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).
