The yearbook and magazine staffs work diligently year-round to create publications for you, the BCHS community.  The biggest reward we get is how well our work is received.  We love seeing you reading the magazine, being excited to get your yearbook on orientation day, clicking for more info on The-BluePrint.org.  You are who we work for, but, it is also nice to be validated by professionals.
