Throughout the year, students are recognized for various accomplishments, whether academic, athletic, or community service oriented.
“These are merit awards and may not be awarded every year.”
At graduation, seniors with honors will be recognized in the following way:

The Principal’s Award is given to an outstanding BBS senior who has gone above and beyond in contributing to the school community in his or her time here at BBS. This student is one who constantly seeks to give of himself or herself to others, to BBS and to teachers without the expectation of recognition in return. He or she is often a “behind-the-scenes” participant in events and works additional time and hours beyond what others do. They are a leader in the school through actions and attitude. This award is only presented if such a student exits in a graduating class, not on an automatic annual basis.
