Be a BHS Innovation Fund Annual Sponsor
The BHS Innovation Fund empowers the Brookline High School faculty and community by fostering a culture of academic innovation and supporting the development of new ideas and initiatives. Sponsorship puts your company or your family in front of our community and demonstrates your commitment to public education in Brookline. In the 2020-21 school year, we shifted our Gala-Rama Event Sponsorships to full-year Annual Sponsorship program. Sponsors at the Gold tier or higher are eligible for a custom spotlight feature in our newsletter, which is sent to over 6,000 community members. See our current Sponsor Spotlights below.

Sponsor Spotlight: Herb Chambers
Herb Chambers, entrepreneur and U.S. Navy veteran, is the March 2021 Friend of the Innovation Fund Sponsor. With 60 car dealership franchises within a 50 mile radius of Boston, including the newly renovated Audi dealership in Brookline on Route 9, Herb Chambers is committed to local neighborhoods. Dedicated to the motto: “We don’t sell cars. We help people buy them,” he is intimately involved in all his franchises and cultivates a close knit family community. Personal attention to employees and customers, and devotion to collaboration and inspiration, earned The Herb Chambers Companies the honor of “Top Places to Work” by the Boston Globe for 11 consecutive years since 2009.
Working closely with first time drivers and their families, Herb Chambers is a proud supporter of Brookline High School. Just as the Innovation Fund is committed to helping school leadership and faculty continue to deliver excellence and prepare students in an ever-changing world, employees of Herb Chambers are committed to excellence in their work and to their youngest customers. “First time car owners are a huge client base for us and purchasing that first car is so exciting. Many of us are parents, and so it becomes a very special experience for all,” shares Nicole Martin, Executive Assistant to the President. The Herb Chambers Companies focus on reliability, safety, security, peace of mind and reassurance. To that end, Smart Pricing was launched for all pre-owned vehicles – offering a car-specific price based on innovative data technology and market research – and without the stress of purchase negotiation. The company also includes a five day money back guarantee and a 30 day or 1,500 mile exchange guarantee for pre-owned vehicles. Additionally, customers are placed into a concierge network: should you not find the car you want at the dealership you visit, you will be offered a dedicated team member to help with a seamless and comfortable transition from one dealership to another.

The BHS Innovation Fund thanks The Herb Chambers Companies for their Platinum Level Sponsorship. All sponsors at this level are given the opportunity to be featured in an Innovation Fund newsletter.
Sponsor Spotlight: Dr. Shari Noe, Collaborative Psychology
Dr. Shari Noe is a BHS parent and clinical psychologist with a thriving practice in Newton. After ten years of working for others, Dr. Noe opened her own boutique practice, Collaborative Psychology, in 2011 to conduct comprehensive strength-based neuropsych evaluations with students ranging from kindergarten to graduate school. Working under the philosophy that testing sessions offer a unique opportunity for psychologists to help students understand their individual learning styles, Dr. Noe works to ensure that each session provides a validating and positive learning experience.
With one child at BHS and one in college, she and her husband, Chris, are strong supporters of the BHS Innovation Fund and are grateful to be part of a system that values novel experiences, healthy learning and teacher engagement. Dr. Noe shared that when she interviews students about school, answers are often dependent on a specific teacher’s personality or disposition. The Innovation Fund seeks to empower BHS faculty so they are fully engaged in teaching and are captivating students. In this way, Innovation Fund courses are a natural extension of Dr. Noe’s work and passion – including providing support for varied learning styles and outside-the-box thinking.
If you, or someone you know, is seeking a comprehensive assessment of a student’s learning, beyond what a typical neuropsych evaluation report may offer, Dr. Noe can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-500-6540.
The BHS Innovation Fund thanks Dr. Noe for her Gold Level Sponsorship. All sponsors at this level are given the opportunity to be featured in an Innovation Fund newsletter.
