With the hotel venue canceling three days before the event, the 2020 junior-senior prom became a night to remember in the community.

May 2020 was a month to remember: Memorial Day, a Zoom Baccalaureate, a COVID-19-restricted graduation for the BAHS Class of 2020 and lower grades. The community rallied to make each event as memorable as possible. The Google album is a way to memorialize the BAHS graduates who’ve exceeded the challenges of finishing their senior year during the pandemic.
