On behalf of the 2015-16 Alumni Board, it is my honor to welcome you to another exciting school year. There are always multiple opportunities for you to get reacquainted with your alma mater and connect with your fellow BGA graduates. I am fortunate to be part of a board with many talented and hardworking members who want to preserve our school’s rich traditions and celebrate its distinguished alumni community.
This year’s events kick off with Homecoming Weekend, October 1-3, 2015. The weekend will be filled with numerous events including the Homecoming Bonfire, Alumni Homecoming Party, and the Hall of Fame Breakfast Induction Ceremony.
Spring Alumni Weekend is April 29-30, 2016. All reunions take place during Alumni Weekend which will also include numerous events for all alumni.
As a current parent, I always look forward to the Legacy Breakfast which is on April 12, 2016. It is an event where BGA Alumni who have children or grandchildren attending BGA has breakfast and meet administration.
We wrap each year with our largest fundraising event, the BGA Golf Classic which will move back to its traditional date on June 2, 2016. The golf tournament is a popular and fun event. It benefits the Alumni Scholarship Fund which provides financial aid to deserving children of BGA alumni.
Of course, we welcome your participation in the BGA Fund, Alumni participation in giving is a critical measurement of a school’s success, and every gift counts. Please let Director of Alumni Relations Laine Milam ’09 or myself if you would like to help in the fundraising process.
We wish you the best in all of your pursuits throughout the year; and, if you have any ideas for future alumni events, please contact any member of the Alumni Board, Laine Milam ’09, or myself.
