North High School Athletics
In 2008, Kevin's alma mater, North High School, was forced to condemn its wrestling room. The building, built by volunteers in the 1970’s, was not built to code and had fallen into a state of disrepair. Kevin Harvick is a 1994 graduate, where he was a member of the wrestling team. After hearing the problems with the wrestling program, Kevin decided to help. “Because of Kevin’s interest, the Kern High School District main office took special note of what was happening out here and offered monetary assistance and work crews from our Maintenance and Operations Divisions, such as carpenters, electricians and painters," said Steve Johnson, former Vice Principal, North High.
"With the money Kevin raised, along with district funds and district workers, we were able to take two old wrestling rooms in both of our gyms and refurbish them with new lighting, new heating, new paint, new mats, etc. Now, we are looking for coaches to assist in trying to improve our program. That, I know, is close to Kevin’s heart. Helping kids to be the best they can be. Kevin has openly talked about how wrestling helped him to become both mentally and physically strong. He wants that for others as well, and so do we.”
In 2013, as part of a continuing effort to support athletics at North High School, the Kevin Harvick Foundation presented the school's boy's and girl's golf teams with a donation of 21 sets of new golf clubs, golf bags, putters and team apparel.
