Greetings & hello to all Bedford Road Alumni! The “good old red & white” is alive and well (95 years and going strong).
We want to inform you of a new alumni initiative. The reason behind this initiative is to quite simply "top up" the current Bedford Alumni Scholarship fund. The primary purpose of this alumni account has been to award scholarship funds to a deserving Bedford Road graduate(s) each year.
This alumni scholarship program has been in place for over 35 years with funds of $1,000 to $2,000 awarded each year to deserving students. Over the years, this fund has been enriched by surplus monies that have been raised by major BRCI reunions (primarily in 1982 and 1998). These funds are almost gone.
Our new initiative will be the Bedford Road Alumni $10 campaign, with more information to come in the near future.
We are in the process of collecting email addresses and getting the word out about the campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We got a good start on the email collection last January at BRIT 50, which was a terrific success. We’d love for this list to grow. Please send an email to BRCIAlumni@gmail.com with names and email addresses of folks that are proud Bedford alumni.
Thanks for your help as we move forward with this ambitious campaign.
