“For Buchanan High to be recognized as a Top 5 State School of the Century is absolutely incredible. This is the biggest recognition that any school can receive for athletics,” said Steve France, Clovis Unified’s Assistant Superintendent who oversees district athletics. “In these challengin times of so many issues, it is nice to get some good news. And this is not only great news for our district, but great news for our entire community. We should be very proud of Bear Nation, including the dedicated young men and women athletes as well as the leadership, coaches and mentors.”
