posted: May 27, 2016
If you graduated from Broad Ripple High School, you are automatically a member of the Broad Ripple High School Alumni Association. The Association's mission is to support the school and its administrators, teachers, students and graduates. The annual awarding of scholarships is an important function of the Association.
No annual dues are collected. All of the funding for the Association's efforts comes from voluntary contributions and from the sale of alumni apparel from the Alumni Association website.
This year, 2016, the Alumni Association awarded four scholarships to deserving graduates to assist them in continuing their education. The winners this year are:
Alumni Association Merit Scholarships:
Ruby Smith ($1,000)
Chyna Johnson ($1,000)
Class of 1955 Improvement Scholarship:
Jason Nguyen ($1.000)
William & Helen Atkins Memorial Scholarship:
Dioseline Jimenez ($700)
These scholarships can make a significant difference in the lives and careers of the recipients.
The Association invites you to join them in their mission. You can get involved with the Association Board and/or contribute funds to support their efforts. Your actions can make a difference for BRHS programs and students. Go to the Association website at www.BRHSalumni.org
to get more familiar with the organization and your potential role.
The multi-page website also includes information about class reunions, upcoming events, BRHS history, favorite teacher and coach rosters, BRHS apparel offerings, and it has dozens of BRHS Yearbooks on line that you can open and page through. There is also a link to allow you to donate to the Association easily. Since the BRHS Alumni Association is a 501(c)13 not-for-profit organization, all donations qualify as charitable donations for income tax purposes.
