For many people at Bakersfield College, you cannot mention BC alumni without thinking of the name John Boydstun.
John was a yell leader at BC and continues as a strong vocal supporter for Bakersfield College in the community.
He was founding president of the BC Alumni Association and has stayed active in the organization (now in his 90s) and in his dedication to BC he has produced those famous football coin purses every year. After leaving Bakersfield College he became a real estate agent, and is now the longest licensed, oldest active, real estate licensee in California if not in the entire US.
His impact on Bakersfield College continues to this day as his granddaughter currently teaches in PE for us.
And it widely agreed that tailgate parties and alumni activities would not be the same without John Boydstun there, reminding us of the rich background of Bakersfield College.
Cheerleader at BC and continues as cheerleader for BC in the community. Was founding president of the BC Alumni Association and has stayed active (now in 90s). Was the youngest active realtor in CA and now the oldest active realtor in CA. Granddaughter teaches in PE now.
