The west coast has endured another week of catastrophic wildfires, which have burned more than 3 million acres of land across California this year. For another week, we are waking to reports of loss of life, damages to businesses and family homes, and harmful air quality that continues to force us indoors.


During these times, I think of our firefighters who are in the depths of the inferno ….. let’s pause for a moment in prayer to keep them safe. Across the state, many of those firefighters learned the skills they needed to protect our communities here at BC, through our Fire Technology program.

At Bakersfield College, our Fire Technology faculty are dedicated to protecting life, property and the environment by providing our students the high qualify education in fire science. If you’re interested in saving California’s beautiful forests and parks out on the front lines, we have aWildland Firefighting Associate of Science degree,其准备叛教与州或联邦荒地消防中介的职业生涯。在卑诗省,我们也很自豪,通过训练我们的贝克斯菲尔德市的消防队员我们消防战士我院消防总长和公司官员程序。

This year’s wildfire season has highlighted the need for more trained fire professionals in California, so please recommend our Fire Technology program to anyone you think might be a good fit. For more information,检查出的BC消防技术网站

Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I was also heartbroken last night to read about the passing of Supreme Court Justice金斯伯格,at 87.

Justice Ginsburg has been a strong voice for women and equality since she was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993.


As we continue to navigate these difficult times, I wanted to share this beautiful poem from my dear friend杰克·埃尔南德斯,约188bet asia app大家都面临的痛苦和机会,我们必须找到和分享我们自己的同情和同情彼此:


fires blacken
political rage
burns compassion.

该heart opens
of those struck
by love’s loss
of the stranger
waiting to enter.

new seeds daring
as one.

It is Saturday, September 19, 2020…a great day to be a Renegade.

Campus Visit

This week, I was able to visit the campus withBill Potter珍妮弗·马登。I enjoyed being able to connect in person with my colleagues, while keeping our social distance.

The construction work is continuing on campus, and I can not wait until we are able to share the updates with our entire Renegade family, and our Bakersfield community.


Our BC Counselor,耶稣Oropeza,guides his 9th grade STDV B6 students through his syllabus on Canvas during their first virtual class meeting.

本周,354名学生从高中Kern District attended their first course from our new KHSD Early College Pathways program. About one third of these students are incoming 9th grade students who are beginning a pathway that will lead to the completion of one of the following associate degrees: Industrial Automation AS, Psychology AA-T, Administration of Justice AS-T, and Public Health AS-T. The rest of the students are 10th, 11th and 12th grade students who are getting a head start on their college education and will graduate from high school with between 9 and 45 college credits.

The students in these pathways will follow strategically designed educational plans to complete two BC courses in the evenings each term at either KHSD’s new CTEC facility or at our BC Southwest Center.

Renegade Alumni Council

The Renegade Alumni Council at Bakersfield College had a great week starting with 2015’s SGA President,Alex Dominguez小号haring his voice在提交给加州贝克斯菲尔德的一块

In his piece, he said “Little did I know our “campus on the hill” would be the place where I find myself, my purpose and determine my future. It was all thanks to the exploration, learning, creativity and freedoms that I know my friends who went away to college did not receive. Not to mention, I also had some amazing faculty including professors Steven Holmes and Ed Borgens.”


Are you a Renegade Alumni? Connect with this new initiative to come back to BC with RAC and check out the video atwww.facebook.com/BCSGARAC/

And then today, there was another great piece in the Californian from an alum Jay Boydstun.https://www.bakersfield.com/opinion/community-voices-keep-the-bc-tradition-alive/article_71971bda-f6c8-11ea-baa9-a3ec3f34e393.html

在1931年版的一篇社论叛徒瑞普illustrates how our Core Value of Community is timeless. At the close of another semester, the staff of the Rip left a heartfelt goodbye to their fellow students and encouraged them to become the best version of themselves possible at the next step in their lives.

A few former BCSGA presidents started theRenegade Alumni Council(aka the RAC), to help graduates maintain the bonds of community they established during their time at BC and help them give back to the place that made them who they are today, because now, just like back in 1931, once you become a Renegade, you’re a Renegade for life.


祝你好运,研究生小号“As the year draws to a close, we find that many of our friends are leaving Bakersfield Junior College. Many will go on to even higher institutions of learning, but some will be through their school days forever.“Wherever you go, Graduates, remember that Bakersfield Junior College is backing you to the greatest degree possible. We are proud of you, and we hope that the students will carry on the next years afterward to make this college one that you will be proud to say, ‘I went there for my first two years’.“Some are not so fortunate. They will not leave for a more advanced college next year. To them, we say, “Come back and we will be glad to see you and help you so that you will be able to continue your advanced work later on.“如果你在这个被称为‘生活’伟大的比赛开始,把上学的时候在你身后,记住,我们祝你所有的成功可能和世界上最好的运气!”Thank you to伯爵帕森斯for sharing this piece.

Former Renegade Tyrone Crawford Set For Ninth NFL Season

前叛徒橄榄球杰出泰隆克劳福德参加第九NFL赛季member of the Dallas Cowboys this last Sunday. The Cowboys took on the Rams in the opening week of the NFL in the newly built Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles. Crawford started his career at BC in 2008 when he was named All-Conference as a freshman. In 2009 he was named a JC All-American as well as first team All-State and first team All-Conference. He then transferred to Boise State where he spent his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility. In 2011, his senior season, he was named First-Team All-Mountain West. In 2012 with the 81st pick of the NFL Draft, Dallas selected Crawford and he has remained a Cowboy ever since. Although the Cowboys didn’t win the game, we are excited to see our former Renegade competing at the highest level.

Be sure to stay connected to Renegade Athletics on social media:

Until next time.
With much Renegade Pride and Collegiality.

    The students in the ThrowbackThursday photo are standing/sitting where the new Science-Engineering building is going to be. Made me realize that there’s going to be less green lawn areas after we’re done with the Measure J buildings. Even more reason to intentionally add green public spaces such as the Peace Gardens.
