Heather Weller - Alumni 2016

Best New Artist
Heather Weller 
Weller, a recent Arizona State University art-school grad, combines surrealism with a Renaissance palette to create photorealistic paintings unlike any other local artist. Moody portraiture and metaphorical livestock are her thing, and her popular gallery exhibits suggest this fine artist is about to break big.


Bri Wilson-Sommers - Alumni 2013
My favorite memory from BGHS was cooking staff and students breakfast on Wednesday mornings with the culinary club
I am a nurse at a level 3 NICU. My job involves caring for extremely premature and critically ill newborns. My job helps the world by helping families through some of the toughest times of their lives. Thanks to modern medicine and highly trained medical professionals, these sick babies have the opportunity to go home and thrive. These children have their whole lives ahead of them and the NICU gives them that chance.
BGHS helped prepare my career by allowing me opportunities to work with our schools in the district to learn technical skills. I was able to attend a nursing assistant class as a senior. When I graduated I had my CNA license when I graduated. This allowed me to work in the hospital while I was in nursing school. my time working as a CNA in college allowed me to pay for my education and gain valuable experience that has helped make me a better nurse

MaryJane Gutierre - Alumni 2015

Favorite memory: Playing basketball for BGHS

I am serving in the USAF as a public health tech so currently I am helping Las Vegas local health district on contact tracing for the COVID19.

BGHS helped me prep for the real world because of the coaches I had during my time at BGHS. They pushed me to do better and be the best in everything I do.
