BHS Alumni Association Holds Annual BHS Alumni Weekend June 23-25

Friday, June 16, 2017

BHSAA will host their 11th Annual BHS Alumni Weekend June 23-25.  The Alumni Weekend serves as a fundraiser for the BHSAA Scholarship Fund and other funding priorities for BHS.  Also, it is a membership kick-off drive ($25 per year) for the BHSAA.  This weekend has become a “reunion” of all BHS Classes for ‘60’s – present.  

Their goal is to raise $25,000 during the weekend, officials said.  

The main event, the BHSAA Family Cookout, will be held on Saturday, June 24 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on the front lawn of BHS.  33 classes have reserved their tent for this event.  "We encourage all classes to come prepared to make a donation to the BHSAA Scholarship Fund," officials said.

There will be other social events held throughout the weekend sponsored by various classes.  Visit “Alumni of Brainerd High School Facebook” page for details.

"Since 2007, the BHSAA has invested over $100,000 back into BHS.  BHSAA has awarded 45 $1,000 scholarships, provided three $500 scholarships to evening school graduates, purchased a digital sign in front of school, furnished a reading lab for students to improve their reading skills, and provided financial support to Orchard Knob Middle and Dalewood Middle Schools, just to name a few things we have done," officials said.

BHS Alums, who would like to make a tax-deductible donation can make a check payable to the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, Inc., put BHSAA Scholarship Fund in the memo section of your check, and remit to the address below.
