     Project Update



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.

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). 

BHS PTA Appeals for Help

Ranking Official Visits The Bassa High School

While in Liberia attending her mother's funeral, BHSAUSA  Board Member and Secretary of the Board, Ms. Berma Findley took time off her busy schedule to visit the Bassa High School. This was a very kind gesture on her part as she was not instructed to or asked to pay the courtesy visit.

Ms. Findley toured the facility and inspected some of the projects we are involved with. She also assessed some of the pressing needs of the school and is expected to brief the general body upon her return to the United States. Berma briefly mentioned the physical condition and uncomfortable situation at the school. Among them were the lack of electricity and fans, and the extreme heat and humidity the students and faculty have to endure. We suspect that she will strongly present the case for the solar panels to help alleviate the uncomfortable learning condition.

On a good note, Ms. Findley observed that the students were not complaining about the situation. They either have adapted to the condition or accepted the state of affairs. The pictures below depict an array of happy students eager to absorb every ounce of knowledge presented to them.

The Late C. Walker Brumskine

Counselor Charles Walker Brumskine has been laid to rest in his hometown of Upper Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, Liberia. After state and private ceremonies in Monrovia,the body was taken to Buchanan,Grand Bassa County where his remains should have laid in state at the Unification Pavilion at the fairgrounds. Unfortunately, his remains was taken directly to Upper Buchanan for burial, disappointing the people of Buchanan and Grand Bassa County the opportunity to bid farewell to their fallen son.

The occasion brought together a cross-section of people from all branches of government, private companies and the legal profession. It also brought together an array of family members (many of whom traveled from abroad), as well as ordinary citizens

Mr. Brumskine was an accomplished lawyer and a great politician whose only disappointment was the failure to win the highest office of the land after several unsuccessful attempts. He led one of the leading political parties in Liberia, the Liberty Party. He was the leading figure to challenge the result of the first round of the last election prior to the Supreme Court clearing the way for a run-off between CDC's George Weah and UP's Joseph Boakai. His loss has left a noticeable void in the political and legal arenas of Liberia. May his soul rest in eternal peace and light perpetual shine upon him.

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! 

The Late Gertrude Findley

Under the leadership of Deacon Mabu S. Torbor ,the Parents Teachers Association of the Bassa High School has called on the Bassa High School Association, USA for assistance. This time it is to complete the paint job started by that organization. They undertook to repaint the buildings on the campus both inside and outside. With over half of the work completed, the PTA ran out of funds to finish the job.

Several members of BHSAUSA have commended the job done by the PTA so far and are in favor of providing the funding to complete the task.

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.

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.
