Heron Happenings – Nov. 2-7

We had a great week at BCHS! Many of our clubs, sports, and other groups passed out hundreds of pieces of candy on Thursday evening to the young kids of Brantley County! It was great to see our students enjoying community outreach!

Our girls cross country team qualified for the state tournament on Wednesday and we had two individual boys that also qualified for the tournament.
