KHSD Police Officer Shane Dishman was selected as the Veterans of Foreign Wars Officer of the Year for both Kern Valley High School and Kern County.
He was recognized at a special ceremony at the VFW hall in Bakersfield in January, where he received Certificates of Appreciation and was awarded $350. He spent $50 of that money buying a stranger groceries at the supermarket and says he will most likely use the rest to help those who need it, too.
Officer Dishman says he likes being given the opportunity to improve lives in a positive manner every single day, and he strives to make someone’s day better as often as possible. Officer Dishman is currently the KHSD Truancy Officer and has been with the District for 19 years.
Congratulations Officer Dishman!
