Renovation work on the Bassa High School's auditorium has been completed. The project was funded by BHSAUSA through the donation from a credible donor, and carried out by Wreyu Construction. The formal assembly and events hall has been fully restored to the state it was in when first constructed. Thanks to the instrumentality of former President E. Nuku Reeves for following through to make it all happen.
For many years, the auditorium served the entire Buchanan community by being the venue of choice for many important events and assembly programs. The arrival of the chairs will complement the auditorium very well.
Death's cold hands has struck close to home once more. The mother of Board Member Berma Findley, Mrs. Gertrude A. Findley, passed away on November 27, 2019, in Dover, Delaware, USA. Her body will be flown to Liberia for burial. Meanwhile, a full service funeral is planned for December 28, 2019 at 10:30 am at the Wyoming United Methodist Church, 216 Wyoming Mill Road, Dover, DE 19904. The BHSAUSA family is expected to be well represented.
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).
BHS Campus to Get another facelift
Already in the pipeline were plans to implement a number of projects at the Bassa High School. They have been given a more sense of urgency since the visit of President King to deliver the keynote address at the 92nd commencement program in August.
Among projects climbing the priority list are the solar panels to provide a constant and reliable supply of electricity to the main campus, replace all of the obsolete broken glass windows, and improving the sanitation condition. The solar panels project is a prerequisite for the renovation of the computer lab (a vital learning tool for the school in the current age).
Funding is becoming available and quotes are already in. It is just a matter of weeks before some of the projects are underway.
Atlanta Played Host to a successful Convention
The recently ended 17th national convention of the Bassa High School Association was a record breaking one. It drew the largest attendance at the benefit Dinner and Ball, received one of the highest financial intake (according to preliminary results), and was well executed from start to finish. Cooperative efforts among the Georgia membership was outstanding.
The ball itself was so well attended that we almost exceeded the seating capacity, pushing us to the embarrassment of asking members to voluntarily give up their seats to guests.
During the election of officers, most of the incumbents were elected unopposed except that of the Treasurer. Ms. Pearl Knowlden prevailed in a somewhat close race with Board Member Berma Findley. Dr. King and his core of officers can now focus on leading the organization successfully for the next two years. Look out for more details on activities of the convention in the coming days. Hats off to Convention Committee Chairman, Mr. Calvin R. Johnson and his core of dedicated committee members for an outstanding job of hosting a smooth convention. There was no known major setbacks the entire weekend.
Anyone that didn't get enough to eat the entire has a serious problem of deciding what to eat. There were plenty of a variety of food everywhere; from the Harmons and before then, the Nagbes, to the Johnsons. It was truly a weekend to remember.

The Late C. Walker Brumskine
Death has dealt The Bassa High School Alumni community a huge blow, the passing of Counselor Charles Walker Brumskine. He was an accomplished alumnus, serving his country in many capacities. The late Counselor Brumskine was one of Liberia's brightest lawyers. He also served as President Pro Temp of the Liberia Senate at one point in time. Most notably, Counselor Brumskine served as the Standard Bearer of the Liberty Party (a major political party on the Liberian political scene). He ran for the highest office of the land several times with great potential but without attaining the desirable results.
The sad event occurred on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 in Northern Virginia, USA, with close family members by his bedside. He had fought a good fight but when God called him home, he gladly answered the call from labor to rest. Mr. Brumskine has left a vacuum in the Liberian political landscape. His younger brother, Mr. Nathaniel T. Brumskine, is an active member of the Bassa High School Association, USA. He will be dearly missed. May his soul rest in eternal peace and light perpetual shine upon him. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.
Generosity Beyond The Walls of BHS
The generosity of Alumnus Wallace Dixon has far reaching effects extending well beyond the Bassa High School Campus. To be more specific, there was a damaging fire in Zondo Town, Number Four District, Grand Bassa County that destroyed several housing units. Learning of this, Mr. Dixon ran to the rescue and is providing the resources to rebuild seven of the units. He is providing the resources and directing the rebuilding of seven units, transforming the outlook of the town. Congrats to Mr. Dixon, BHS Class of 1964 for the concern and assistance!! You are a hero!

Bassa High School Students Perform Well on WASSCE
Mr. George B. Gaybueh, the new Principal of the Bassa High School System, informed us of the impressive performance of the BHS students in the 2019 academic year WASSCE. Out of 328 students registered to take the exams, 320 passed in 1 to 6 subjects. They came first in Grand Bassa County and second among all Public Schools throughout Liberia.
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.
Bassa High School PTA Takes on a Huge Task
In a recent communication to the BHSAUSA written by Mr. Mabu Tobor on behalf of the PTA, the association praised the efforts of BHSAUSA for replacing the roof as well as the on-going project of replacing the window glasses on the first and second floors of the main building.
He further informed us that the PTA is embarking on the project of painting the main building and the science building inside and outside. This will give the school an attractive new look and enhance the image within the community,
