Oil Technology students were involved in an annual event at the West Kern Oil Museum on October 25th. “Boomtown” this year was a special day where Oil Tech students got to show their helpful side during the celebration of the newly renovated Bender Drilling Rig (or the Jamison Well) from 1939. It was the first ever portable rig of its kind.

The Sophomores served as docents by giving tours of the museum and of the unique buildings. The Seniors served food, and cleaned up during the barbeque, which was run by a crew led by Fred Holmes. Mr. Popejoy commented, “A lot of people came up to me throughout the whole event and said the students were doing great.” Boomtown was all around a success according to Mr. Pendergrass, who said, “Everything I heard was very positive. We had many kids working hard out there.” All in all, a lot of work was put into this event, and a lot of knowledge came out of it.
