Berkeley High School organized three very different events last week.

The Black Scholars Awards were held on Thursday evening . This ceremony honored the school’s 205 Afro-American students with a 3.0 GPA or greater.

On Saturday, students celebrated Mardi Gras with a ball at the Jack London Aquatic Center.

Also that night, hundreds of friends and family gathered at Longfellow Middle School to remember the late Terry Doran who taught at BHS for 33 years and was school board president/director for eight years.
