Our class is the first and only class to date to create an Alumni Scholarship award. Thanks to Jennifer Devilbiss for coming up with the idea. We have used funds collected over the years from events and interest. In the future we would like to create an ongoing fund to continue to support the scholarship annually. The scholarship is given to a current child of a BHS alumnus (our only criterion) and it is selected by the scholarship committee at the high school.
The reunion committee is looking into how to handle continuing this scholarship. Unless you are a non profit a bank account must be in a person's name. However, we've found that we could open an account with Greene Giving (wwww.greenegiving.org) and they would handle the account and disperse the money according to our wishes.
Thanks Jennifer for handling this.
