Welcome to the Bensalem Alumni Association Inc. website! This is the first site for all alumni from Bensalem High School (BHS). Our site now lists every person who graduated from BHS, as well as some members who attended BHS and did not graduate with their class. Additionally, all the Teachers who taught at BHS are included as well. That’s a total of over 29,000 names!

A little information about ourselves: The Bensalem Alumni Association, Inc. was established in 1986. Each year, the Association awards scholarships to deserving BHS seniors. The Bensalem Alumni Association, Inc. is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (governed by a non-profit Board) which relies on fundraising activities, membership dues, member donations, and the unselfish help of volunteers to help honor not only our school, but also the students who make BHS great! 

On May 30, 2024, we were privileged to be able to distribute $20,000 worth of scholarships to 11 deserving seniors. This is due to the kindness and generosity of alumni like you! Press on the tab to the left marked "Scholarship Recipients" to see this year's recipients. Also, Thank You so very much to our alumni who have endowed scholarships this year!!

We host a golf outing every June to support these efforts. The 37th Annual Bensalem Alumni Association, Inc. Golf Outing was held on Wednesday, June 12, 2024. It was a fun day with excellent weather. THANK YOU to all the golfers who participated!!

Another fundraiser is our All Year Reunion (AYR), a gathering of anyone who graduated from, attended, or taught at BHS. Our next AYR will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2024. Click on the tab "All-Year-Reunion 2024" to register for this event. 

We also would like to thank our sponsors!!! Click on the tab on the left marked "Sponsors" to see all the people and businesses who support us. Sponsors' advertisements are printed in our annual Newsletter, and posters of their logos are posted at our Golf Outing and AYR. 

If you wish to sponsor us in your name or business name, or if you wish to sponsor us in memoriam of another person or persons, please contact us. General sponsorships are $150. 

Another aspect of our organization is our Veterans' Wall. Any BHS graduate or attendee ("Once an Owl, always an Owl") who was honorably discharged from the United States military, and who wishes to be on the wall, can have their name added. Email Ray (Rayguim@rayguim.com) a copy of your DD214 (with Social Security number redacted), or email Ray a copy of your military ID, and we will have a plaque engraved with your graduation year and name, and then have it affixed to the wall. As of September 20, 2023, we have 1665 names on the Veterans' Wall. THANK YOU to all who served and to our current servicemembers. 

Our Newsletter, with all of the latest information, is a feature of our organization. Our Spring 2024 edition has been mailed out, and is currently available to peruse on our website. Our Newsletter is mailed out only to our dues-paying members; therefore, become a member today!! 

Click on any of the tabs on the left to read about our past scholarship recipients, and those who have been inducted into the Bensalem High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Remember, we have nothing to with the Hall of Fame; using the form provided on the page, all nominations must be filled out and submitted to the Bensalem High School Sports Association (BHSSA). All info is provided on the tab. 

At this time, we have most of the BHS yearbooks downloaded on our website. Look at the tabs to the left, and click on "Yearbooks," to see the evolving history of our school. 

We are always looking for volunteers. We hold our monthly meetings at the Bensalem Remax Office (1955 Street Road; Bensalem, PA 19020) every second Tuesday of the month at 6pm. We also have Zoom, to accomodate those members who wish to participate, but cannot attend the meetings in person. 

This is a free site, though we do request $12 membership dues per year to cover expenses and help with the scholarship costs. We depend on the kindness of alumni like you! Please consider joining us as a paying member. There is a Dues and Donations tab at the left that you can use to join.

Thank you for taking time to visit our website, and continuing to take part in our vibrant alumni community. 

 

Take care!
