‘GADES CLUB’ LAUNCHED TO SUPPORT RENEGADE STUDENT ATHLETE SUCCESS

Bakersfield, CA – The Bakersfield College Athletics Department announces the launch of the 'Gades Club' to help support the success of Renegade student athletes both on the field and in the classroom.

Since 1922 Renegade Athletics has served as a launching pad for thousands upon thousands of student athletes who have gone on to professional careers both in their respective sports and off the playing field. The newly announced 'Gades Club' is a way for community donors to support Bakersfield College student athletes as they continue their academic and athletic careers at one of the most well-respected community colleges in the country.

"Participation in college athletics had long been a training ground for life lessons that transcend sports," said current Renegade Interim Dean/Athletic Director Reggie Bolton. "What our student athletes learn in their time here will stick with them through their entire lives. We appreciate the long-standing relationships and support the Bakersfield community has provided throughout the years. With the introduction of the 'Gades Club' we are looking to maintain a strong connection with that community and our Renegade alumni well into the future"

The 'Gades Club' will provide financial support to all 20 Renegade athletic male/female teams and will assist with the annual Hall of Fame and Renegade student athlete awards ceremonies.

The donation is tax deductible, but it is advised to speak with a tax professional for details.
