This past summer, Bolsa Grande High School’s ASB once again attended the annual Orange County Leadership (OCL) Camp held at UC Santa Barbara on August 7th-10th. With their skit inspired by Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Bolsa put their own modern twist by incorporating a public service announcement style PSA about how cell phones and technology negatively affect our daily lives. After weeks of hard work and dedication, Bolsa pulled together to execute an astounding skit. Out of the 48 schools in attendance, Bolsa performed in front of over 2,000 students and placed first overall at the Talent Show on August 9th. Congratulations Bolsa Grande ASB!
Congratulations yet again to the amazing BGHS Stem team who have won an astounding second place overall in the nation at the MESA National Engineering Design Challenge!
