55 Years of Friendship & Good Will between Bakersfield and Wakayama
In August of 2015, eight Bakersfield students traveled, at their own expense, to Bucheon, South Korea, one of Bakersfield’s sister cities. While there, they were hosted by families of Korean students and participated with the them in various activities and tours. On November 18, 2015, at the Bakersfield City Council, these students were presented by Mayor Harvey Hall with certificates of recognition as Bakersfield Ambassadors. All had a great experience and are looking forward to hosting Korean students at the end of December.
Many meet to create the foundation for a new Sister City Youth Program. The Youth will design this program with support from Parents and Board Members. Watch for updates on the next meeting. We will post dates and times in Events & Calendar.
Evan Sproul discusses the new program below.
