Scholarships Awarded to Outstanding Bellaire Seniors The Alumni and Friends of Bellaire High School have just awarded scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year. Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, grade point average, class rank, and community involvement. This year, four $2,000 scholarships have been awarded to these outstanding students. Erin Eby who plans to attend Texas A&M, Kevin Guo, who plans to attend Stanford University, and Ceara Felder, who plans to attend Texas State University.
Another scholarship is given annually in memory of Sherry Senior, who taught Math at Bellaire High School. This year’s recipient of Mrs. Senior’s scholarship is Ashley Melissa Gamez Montalvo, who plans to attend University of Houston.
The Alumni also awarded a Faculty of the Year Award to Jean Carcedo, a Pre-Calculus and Pre-AP Geometry Teacher and the Outstanding Staff Award to Marta Flores de Gomez.
The Alumni and Friends of Bellaire High School (AFBHS) was organized in 1994 to provide annual student scholarships, improvements to the school, and provide faculty and staff awards to support the dedication of their work at BHS. The Alumni and Friends have given over $1,000,000 in scholarships over the years. Funds are raised through our annual alumni golf event, alumni donations, and sale of Cardinal Courtyard Bricks (which will continue after the school’s renovation).
Any graduate of Bellaire High School is encouraged to register with the website to keep informed of all alumni events, class reunions, and school happenings.

Dear Class of '78 Cardinals - On behalf of Merry Kay and the planning committee, we want to let you know the date we're targeting for the 40-year reunion is Saturday night, April 14, 2018, at the Marriott West Loop (610 at San Felipe).
Our company, Reunions by Class Act, has been asked by the committee to coordinate the event. That means it'll be casual, affordable and a lot of fun -- and will "look" quite a bit different than the past reunions for the class.
Yes, we're in a hotel ballroom, but it will be set up to reflect that this is a party, not the prom. Instead of being filled with large, round tables, the room will have cocktail and "tall-boy" tables, and even a couple of sofas. Don't worry - there'll be plenty of places to sit. Another nice feature: The bar will be set up to accept charge cards.
In order to finalize the details, and make sure there's enough interest to move forward, we need 20 of you to go ahead and register (pay) by 5 p.m. next Wednesday, Nov. 29. For you "early birds," the cost is only $40 per person. (The regular cost will be at least $5 more.) Please note: Your payment won't be processed until we reach our goal.

A Bellaire High School graduate described by her friends as "passionate" and "strong" was among those injured when a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protestors at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, her mother said on a fundraising page.
Natalie Romero, 20, was one of at least 19 people hurt when a driver sped into a crowd in a pedestrian mall, according to this GoFundMe page. It shows Romero with a bloodied face and bandaged head.
At least one person, 32-year-old Heather Heyer of Virginia, died after the driver of a Dodge Challenger sped into the crowd.
Those who know Romero said they weren't at all surprised to hear the rising sophomore was out at the counter-protest.
"She's so strong, bold, and fierce," said fellow University of Virginia student Yaselly Sanchez, who served as Romero's mentor through a UVA peer mentoring program for Hispanic and Latinx students.
"I wasn't at all surprised that she was there defending her own beliefs and those who are unable to attend such events. She's been very active and is grounded in her beliefs. She becomes iconic to everyone she touches, and she's a true gem who's only just beginning to shine."
Alex Garcias, a rising junior, described Romero as "full of conviction" and the "most passionate girl I know."
Victoria Giron, another UVA student, praised her classmate as "very outspoken about issues affecting minority students."
As news of Romero's injury spread, Houstonians rallied around her, too.
"Natalie was there because of the person she is and to support the rights of everyone," Bellaire High Principal Michael McDonough wrote on Twitter. "Natalie has always had a strong spirit for being an active citizen. She was always a fervent rights advocate and her peers found her inspiring."
The GoFundMe campaign to cover medical costs, raised more than $6,000 in the first 12 hours.
"The EMERGE family in Houston is sending love, and praying for your speedy recovery," wrote one donor. "You inspire us."
Others called her a "rock star" and a "hero," praising her for taking a stand for her beliefs.
Romero balanced a college-prep workload while serving as a leader in the school's Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. She was named Outstanding JROTC cadet for Houston ISD in May 2016.
She participated in HISD's EMERGE program, which helps low-income and minority students get accepted into Ivy League schools. She earned the Harlan Andrews Founding Principal Scholarship for leadership, character and commitment to excellence, McDonough said.
