BCHS Foundation – Closing one chapter and starting another
Several schools in the Jefferson County School District have been replaced. Often the archival records and memorabilia had either been lost or failed to be transferred for display in the new schools. Bear Creek’s parent community wanted to ensure this same loss did not occur with Bear Creek’s new school. The BCHS Community Foundation Campaign successfully achieved more than just their financial goals. A variety of events and opportunities generated mass appeal and support to capture and preserve the school’s history through a museum, commemorative events and the opening of the new school. Alumni, faculty and the community participated in each phase of the campaign adding to the energy and spirit of the effort.
