Please help support the Christopher Goody Memorial Fund by sponsoring Bob Muro in his marathon day of golf where he will attempt to complete as many holes as possible from sun-up to sun-down on Friday, June 24 at Eagle Crest Golf Course.

To make a donation, please contact HS Principal Mr. Brunson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make checks payable to BH-BL Schools.
