Presidential Message



 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---

Project Continuity

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).

Renovation Work Done

Some of the work done recently on the main campus of the Bassa High School System. They include painting of the buildings, renovating the facility to be used as the school's clinic, and providing new arm chairs for the classrooms. They also include putting tile on the floors of the classrooms. We understand that all of these were done with assistance from the IRise Funds, a World Bank project. The Improving Results In Secondary Education (IRISE) is a $47 million project grant to Liberia through the International Development Association (IDA) of the World Bank. The Bassa High School System is one of the beneficiary of the grant.

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.

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 Zohn 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! 

Completed work on the Painting of the Rear of The Main Building At 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.

One of the uniqueness of BHSAUSA is the fact that we have many self-motivated members. Whenever there is a need for help someone always steps in and fill that void. Whether it is financial help, time, effort or other resources needed to get things done, a volunteer will take the lead. Many members have donated such things as prizes for the raffle, mugs for our souvenir, time to visit the school when in Liberia on other personal business, financial help with projects, and the list goes on.

This year experienced a void in our finances with the cancelling of our annual convention (our single largest money-making event), but we still have expenditure. Our only source of revenue has been from membership dues. However, generosity kicked in again. This time it is from former Board Member Calvin R. Johnson. He stepped in and volunteered to finance the entire scholarship program for the selected students of BHS for academic year 2020/2021, saving our treasury thousands of dollars.

BHSAUSA Loses a Faithful Member

Death has struck the BHSAUSA once again. Although not a frequent occurrence, the loss of a member is always painful to endure. Mr. Clarence Kamara was an active member of the association, faithful in the payment of his dues even when he could not attend conventions. A member of the class of 1975, Mr. Kamara joined the association later but his presence was felt by his sense of humor. He always exhibited a smiling face. Being a retiree, he frequently traveled to Liberia for months at a time. He will be missed by many who knew and loved him. Clarence leaves behind a host a relatives, including his loving wife, Benetta, several children and other family members. May his soul rest in eternal peace and light perpetual shine uon him.

Bassa High School Students Perform Well on WASSCE

Rev. Father Augustus Quoi, the new Principal of the Bassa High School System, informed us of the impressive performance of the BHS students in the 2020 academic year WASSCE. Out of 274 students registered and took the exams, 256 passed. They did not take the sciences as per the Ministry of Education due to the ill-preparedness of 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.

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.
