The Kern High School District proudly honors its top students with the Superintendent's First In Class Awards Class of 2020. This year, the District recognizes 113 students who have demonstrated hard work for the past four years. Though we were unable to gather and celebrate these amazing students in person this year, it doesn't mean their accomplishments have gone unnoticed. We wish each student the best of luck and much success as they move on to their next endeavors.
