The Alumni and Friends of Bellaire High School have just awarded scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year. Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, grade point average, class rank, and community involvement.

Alexander Kontoyiannis, who plans to attend Harvard University, Gloire Mayaluka Yahve, who plans to attend Texas State University, Ashley Clarke, who plans to attend University of Pennsylvania, and Zoe Zhang, who plans to attend Northwestern University. The class of 1968 has made a one-time scholarship donation and the recipient is James Wei, who plans to attend Stanford University.
Another student 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 Heather Huang, who plans to attend Georgetown University.
The Alumni also awarded a Faculty of the Year Award to Ashley Heng who teaches Math. The Outstanding Staff Award goes to Marta Flores de Gomez who is the Head Custodian for Bellaire.
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 and awards 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.
