President Message

In March, 2004 residents of the West Kern Community College District  voiced strong support for the revitalization of Taft College by approving a $39.8 million bond for the construction and renovation of Taft College facilities. This approval makes the college eligible for over $60 million in construction financing from other sources. In all, Taft College will have over $100 million available for campus improvements.

We are excited about the improvements planned for the college and we want to share that excitement with you through this web site. By following the links on this site, you will be able to monitor the college’s progress toward a new campus. You, along with the Citizen’s Review Committee, will also be able to monitor expenditures for every individual project. Our goal in providing this information is a complete and early disclosure of information.

Thank you for your interest in securing Taft College’s future.
