Foster students prepare to graduate from high school and transition into independant living

Foster students graduate against all odds

BAKERSFILED, Calif. - Dozens of foster students from across Kern County are slated to graduate in the coming weeks.

On Wednesday, students celebrated their accomplishments at the 15th annual Independent Living Program Graduation Dinner at Coconut Joe's Private Beach Club.
