Bakersfield: Runners of today, leaders for tomorrow

"Receiving a scholarship has changed my life in a positive way, allowing me to get a degree ... to help children become successful and show them anything is possible. Knowing a scholarship can change my life, as well as my future family's life, is mind-blowing to me. I'll continue to lead others around me in the right direction."

— Curtis Threlkeld, Track and Field

"My athletic scholarship has allowed me to persevere through obstacles in my life. I am the first in my family to graduate college and will also be the first in my family to obtain a masters in counseling psychology. Without my scholarship, I would not be in the position I am today."
