Through the continued support of alumni and community members, the Beverly Hills Athletic Alumni Association (BHAAA) has donated over $35,000 this school year to the Athletic Department at BHHS.
Funds have been used to purchase cheerleading mats; canopies for football and cross country; soccer uniforms for the girls frosh/soph team and the boys frosh/soph and JV teams; varsity softball uniforms; a high jump pit and crossbars; lane lines for the swim gym pool; girls volleyball uniforms; lacrosse sticks for the girls varsity team; golf uniforms and bags for the boys and girls golf teams; a new baseball pitching machine for all levels and baseball netting and fencing for Nickoll Field.
These new renovations and additions to the high school campus will now allow more varsity games to be held at BHHS.
“BHAAA continues to make significant contributions to benefit the high school athletic department, and our involvement is critical during this challenging economic time. In addition to purchasing a wide array of equipment, we have purchased new uniforms for every team in the program and have established three scholarship awards to reward graduating student athletes annually. We must continue to raise funds in order to assist the athletic department with its needs, and we continue to look to our alumni and the community for their support,” said David Corwin, President of BHAAA.
