What challenges did the Class of 2022 face as they returned to in-person school full time, and how did they overcome them: The Class of 2022 returned to school this year in the position of being the leaders of 2,000 students who had almost forgotten the thrill and excitement of school life. This class ensured all students were welcomed back, and themselves jumped into a full schedule of academics, clubs, and activities to end well.
Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: The class of 2022 at BGHS will always be remembered for their leadership and perseverance, enduring the effects COVID protocols and interruptions to school. They have returned for their senior year energetic and resilient, helping the underclassman acclimate to high school, and reviving traditions from years past to ensure that every student at BG knows that they belong. The spirit of #OneBG is very real to this special group of seniors.
