In April, CSUB English faculty member Matthew Woodman was appointed as the Poet Laureate of Kern County. In his role, he is charged with raising awareness of poetry as a literary art in Kern
County, promoting community awareness of the literary arts, and encouraging residents to develop their own creative interests. He will also provide readings of original poetry at community functions in the county. Not only is Woodman the founding editor of the journal Rabid Oak, his work has appeared in the literary journals Mojave Heart Review, MORIA, Puerto del Sol, Sierra Nevada Review
and The Meadow, among others.
AH students were recognized at the annual Roadrunner Society Awards Ceremony. The society recognizes graduating seniors in the areas of leadership, academics, athletics, and community service. Congratulations to our amazing students!!
