Last Updated: 203 days ago
BAKERSFILED, Calif. - Dozens of foster students from across Kern County are slated to graduate in the coming weeks.
The Department of Human Services said this is quite an accomplishment because this group of students faces more barriers than students who grow up in a traditional family setting.
On Wednesday, students celebrated their accomplishments at the 15th annual Independent Living Program Graduation Dinner at Coconut Joe's Private Beach Club.
