Welcome to the official Bakersfield High School Alumni Association website. One of the items on my retirement bucket list was the creation of an Alumni Association so that the Driller legacy would be recognized in an organized and professional manner.  I am so proud of the current Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) leadership who decided this spring to make the creation of the Alumni Association a priority for the board. Along with the Alumni Association Facebook page, we want this website to be a place where Driller alumni can find the latest information about class reunions, peruse Driller history and archives, read about current Driller achievements, as well as a place where other Driller events can be publicized. I encourage you to join the Alumni Association so that you can be an active member of Driller history. The Alumni Association is currently raising funds to landscape the Driller water tower that is housed at the Kern County Museum and will sponsor one of the last items on my retirement bucket list, an All-Alumni Event. Thank you so much for allowing me to be your principal for the last 20 years….. I hope I left the school in a good place and that the Driller legacy lives on forever.

-David Reese, Principal 1999-2019
