My sincere greetings to you. As we have seen over the past few weeks and months, the development around COVID-19 can happen quickly and with little warning. I know this, and everything about this crisis and pandemic, feels alarming to all of us here, our families in Liberia where about three cases have been identified, and where a few of our alumni have traveled. Yet, I'm confident that God will guide us through it all.
As the implications of the virus pandemic change on almost hourly and daily basis, we are asking you to pray, take the advice of the experts and your public health officials in your locality or the State where you live, because safety is your first concern and ours as well. I like to emphasize that family is what this is all about right now and that we are all in this together. Please let's keep united and call one another, especially those that are in hot areas.
In the weeks ahead, things may get challenging, but through the help of God we will survive, united even more for having managed through unprecendented adversity.
Because of you, "Turris Lucis" lives on. Stay safe!
---Dr. A. Joel King, PRESIDENT---
Death's cold hands has struck the BHS family again. This time it is former President Howard. He was one of the longest serving presidents in the organization's history. It was during his administration when the term limit was increase via of a constitutional amendment, enabling him to serve more than two conservative terms. Prior to his demise, he had always been on the minds of leading members of the association.
Concrete plan was in the works to pay him a visit. It would have been a third visit to the former president. Key members had proposed a visit in April of this year. The visit will still be made but this time it will be to say good-bye by way of paying last respect. He was a member of the class of 1976, a class with active participation in the affairs of the association. May his soul as well as the souls of the previously departed members rest in everlasting peace.
The late B. Wilmot N. Howard
President Dr. Joel A. King has vowed to continue implementing the projects of the previous administrations, i.e. the science and computer labs. He recognizes the importance of having modern labs at the Bassa High School. They both go a long way in enhancing the learning performance of the students.
A man of tech background himself, Dr. King is strongly committed to giving the students the opportunity to compete with their counterparts from anywhere in the world.
Bassa High School Association USA Gets a WhatsApp Chatroom
To enhance communications between and among members of the association, the BHSAUSA has set up a chatroom. Thanks to the innovative initiation of Mrs. Lucinda Nagbe (the mastermind of the setup). Every member is encouraged to take advantage of this added way of communication. With people spending more time on their smart phones, the move is right for the time we live in. If you don't have the WhatsApp app on your phone, download it from the App Store (for Apple users) and the Play Store (for Android users).
The Two Competing Queens, Siah W.B. Reeves & Mardea Moore
One of the highlights of the 2023 convention fundraising dinner and ball was the queen contest. This year we had two beautiful ladies representing two States: Siah W.B. Reeves in the yellow, representing the State of Maryland, and Mardea Moore in the peach, representing the State of California. With three rounds of fierce competition, Ms. Reeves handily emerged as the winner, raising over $5,000 to capture the crown. Thanks to Ms. Moore and her Northern California supporters for showing some competitive guts.
Unfortunately, when the total was tallied, they were no match for the Maryland team.
BHSAUSA DUKPAH Chatroom
In addition to the BHSAUSA Chatroom on WhatsApp, the association now has another chatrom on WhatsApp. It is called the BHSAUSA DUKPAH. This where membes can post informative and entertainment articles to cheer up everyone and also share findings in the areas of finance, technology, sports, medical, and several others. It is strongly advised that members refrain from posting anything explicit as we are a responsible organization. The other chatroom is strictly for things pertaining to BHSAUSA and BHS.
Help on the Way
The BHSAUSA has answered the plea for help from the PTA. The body unanimously approved the funding for the completion of the painting of the main school building. According to the Project Committee Chairman, Mr. Johnny Barnard, the funds have already been disbursed to Liberia for the work to begin. Upon completion, the building will have a beautiful look from all angles of the property.
A 1962 graduate of the Extension Division of the Bassa High School, mother Kilby was called from labor to rest on December 27, 2022. Besides being a graduate, mother Kilby had been represented in the association through the active of her daughter, Lucinda and son in-law Charles. Several of her other children attended the institution as well. May her soul rest in eternal peace and light perpetual shine on her.

An Exceptional Philantropist
A recent program on Freedom Radio in Monrovia, Liberia focused on education. In it the host, Jeff Jefferson, featured our own President Emeritus, Emmanuel Nuku Reeves and his effort in making the difference in the lives of the education of some of the underpriviledged young people in Liberia. He made particular reference to Mr. Reeves' offering of two full scholarships to a male and female graduate of his alma matar, the BHS to attend any institution of higher learning in Liberia. Mr Jefferson applauded the good will of Mr. Reeves and challenged others to follow his example.
Beside this recent gesture of good will, Mr. Reeves is widely known for lending a helping hand where he sees the need and is in the position to fill that need. A preacher call that a person's calling (seeing a need and filling it). He is a fine example of a true and exceptional philantropist. Mr. Reeves is one of the strongest pillars of the BHSAUSA in every aspect. He recently sponsored the 20th convention without the association spending a dime from the treasury. From the hotel rooms to the cost of the souvenirs, the food and drinks for the welcome event as well as the farewell brunch, everything was done through him and a few donor partners. It brought back the true spirit of fun and togetherness. People are calling it the best convention ever.

Bassa High School Students Perform Well on WASSCE
Rev. Father Augustus Quoi, the Principal of the Bassa High School System, informed us of the impressive performance of the BHS students in the 2020/2021 academic year WASSCE. Out of 337 students registered and took the exams, 334 passed.
It gave us the encouragement that the cooperative efforts between our association and the school are paying off. It is our hope that their performance will be even better during the next academic year.
Solar Panel Project Gains Momentum
Since the much talked about need to have a constant supply of electricity at the Bassa High School, nothing tangeable had been seen until recently. Former Principal Sherriff anticipated the day when the project would have commenced during his administration, but it did not happen.
The pressure has been mounting for the project to get underway for some time now. President King has been very cautious in his approach to the project. He first instituted a fundraising initiative and incorporated it into the annual benefit dinner and ball at the convention. Spearheaded by Ways and means Chairman, Immanuel W. Karpeh, the intiative has become a routine aspect of the dinner and ball.
A giant step taken in the direction of implementing the project was the recent assessment carried out by a credible consultant for a meager cost of $100. The report should be submitted shortly, and based on the findings and recommendation, the next step will be taken.
Work in Progress at BHS
These are the progression of work on the painting of the back of the main building at BHS and the outside lavatory on campus. We salute Dr. Butscher for his donation towards the bathroom project.
The BHSAUSA mourns the passing of long time member of the financial team, Mr. J. Alexander Morris. He served various financial positions with distinction, including treasurer and financial secretary. He was later appoint to head the auditing committee, a position he held until his death. "Zehn" as he was affectionately called, will be truly missed. May his soul rest in peace.
