Cougar Leader Program Fundraiser
The Cougar Leader program is asking for your help to sponsor one or more students at BHSN. Normally, this transition program collects money from a small registration fee for Cougar Encounter which helps cover the cost of t-shirts and other supplies used throughout the school year in our role as ambassadors for the school. The recent pandemic, however, has canceled the past two Encounters which has depleted the Cougar Leader budget. A 25-dollar donation will sponsor one student, but anyone is welcome to help sponsor more! Would you consider helping us raise funds for our transition activities and Cougar spirit wear this school year? Thank you!
