“The NBHS Young Alumni Association is committed to providing NBHS student with resources that will prepare them for college and life after graduating from high school,” said Justin Braga ’12, a senior at Brown University who co-chairs the NBHSYAA with fellow NBHS alumna and Brown student Melissa Isidor. “We hope to raise enough funds to be able to help subsidize trips to colleges throughout the Northeast, so that NBHS students can be fully aware of the opportunities that they have as graduates of NBHS. We want every NBHS student to believe that they can succeed, and we hope to provide a helping hand to students in their pursuit of accomplishment.”
“The initiative that the Young Alumni Association has taken since the group was founded last year is an incredible accomplishment that we as a school are extremely proud of,” said Headmaster Bernadette Coelho. “This event will be a great benefit to our New Bedford High students who have their sights set on the future, giving them the chance to see colleges firsthand and hear directly from their NBHS predecessors on the opportunities that are available to students after they graduate.”
Superintendent Pia Durkin said, “We hope the school community and the wider New Bedford community will come together to support this excellent effort spearheaded by our own NBHS alumni. It is heartening to see their ambition and desire to give back to their school by working with current students on college and career readiness, and it is a reflection of the deep sense of pride that New Bedford students have.”
