Santa visits local elementary school he attended 90 years later


A man who started school at Central Bakersfield’s William Penn Elementary School returned 90 years later as Santa Claus. 

Jack Hood started school there in 1928 when he was five years old and attended kindergarten through the sixth grade.

Hood says he used to walk to the school on San Emidio Street from his parent’s new home, two blocks north on Park Way.
