I would like to nominate Perveskwer Jaswal for Top Puppy. As a member of the Senior Project Committee, I receive many special requests for a variety of things over the course of a year. Perish sent me an email request that was NOT ONLY thoughtful, but well written and reasonable. It is clearly evident that Pervesh has had many great teachers who taught him how to be articulate and compassionate. Needless to say, his request was instantly granted and my day was made that much brighter! Well done, Pervesh!

I would like to nominate Sophomore Yeifi Zheng, Junior Jack Troyer, and Senior Ty Benson for making it on stage in Orlando this past week at the DECA International Career Development Conference (just the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th students from BHS to ever hold this honor).
- Yeifi placed for his test score in Principals of Finance
- Jack placed for his test score in Sports and Entertainment Marketing.
- Ty placed for his Financial Consulting presentation and also finished 11th overall in the DECA DASH 5K to begin the trip.
- The BHS chapter also received the US ARMY Leadership award on behalf of NH DECA for the 2nd straight year.
All three of these young leaders showed their potential by pushing themselves beyond their comfortable limits, applying critical thinking and problem solving techniques, and embodying the BHS mission on the international stage. Great work guys!

Isabelle Kapoian won second place in a national painting competition, the US Fish and Wildlife Junior Duck Stamp competition. She painted a Tundra Swan cygnet in oil paint. Being chosen second is a huge honor as there were over 24,000 entries!! If she was first, they would make a US postage stamp out of her painting. Congratulations to Isabelle! A top painting puppy!
There is a student in our class named Cory Wallace, and we believe the actions he has made over the past week are worthy of recognition. Cory was in charge of the yearly junior class game "Assassins", but after it was shut down for various reason, he decided to ask each person to donate their money to World Visions International charity instead of getting their money back. Almost every person in the game donated, and Cory was able to raise upwards of $1,310 for a little boy in Uganda named Brian. This money is enough for over 3 years of Brian's sponsorship. Cory turned the disappointment of closing this game into an amazing charitable event, and we believe this is a perfect example of what is so great about our bulldog community.
