The Amazon kindles are being donated in an effort to increase not only the learning potential of local students, but also support technology in education.

"Having all of their reference material with them during an entire rehearsal, instead of running to the sidelines to check their pages, would greatly improve the learning potential of our students," said Randy Bennett, the Instrumental Music Director at Bakersfield High School, "this is an amazing opportunity for the program to take the leap into the 21st century with the support of SBBCollege. The number of possibilities are endless" he said.
