Board of Directors

The BHS Innovation Fund is governed by its Board of Directors, a body made up of volunteers from the community and representatives of important constituent groups. Several members of the board are BHS alumni and many more are parents of current or former students. The board is responsible for the strategic direction of the Innovation Fund including the effective oversight of the Innovation Fund’s program development and evaluation, budgeting and fundraising, and the overall operation and good health of the organization. Individuals elected to the board serve three-year terms. The board meets six times a year. Most directors also serve on at least one committee.
