The annual opening day event was held at BH-BL High School where school leaders welcomed returning faculty and staff and introduced new members to the BH-BL family. A new and exciting addition to opening day was guest/motivation speaker Murray Banks (www.murraybanks.com) who took the year's theme, "Rooted in the past, Growing toward the future," and incorporated it into an audience-participating, inspiring, motivating, heartfelt and humorous presentation about having what it takes--and holding onto that passion--to be an integral and memorable player on the BH-BL Team.
