Great Graduates Program
Since 1999, The Broken Arrow High School (BAHS) Alumni Association has been honoring outstanding Broken Arrow graduates for their impact on the community. Known as “Great Graduates,” the purpose of the program is to recognize those who have brought honor to their community and to their Alma Mater through their personal and professional accomplishments.

“One of the things that sets Broken Arrow apart from so many other schools of its size is the sense of community,” said Broken Arrow Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jarod Mendenhall. “The contributions of past generations have built a strong school and community, and I think it only fitting to have a program that honors those men and women.”
The BAHS Alumni Association is currently accepting nominations for this year’s group of Great Graduates. To be eligible for the award, nominees must have graduated from BAHS at least 20 years ago, and display both the integrity and courage to motivate them to have a positive impact on their community. Though hard to measure, these qualities can be evidenced by a history of selfless giving of time and talent to community service and building a better future for others. As they continue to live out their commitment to excellence, they serve as a role model to the entire community.

“Our respect for our heritage strengthens both our school and our community,” Mendenhall said. “I am glad we can honor the pillars of our community by recognizing them with such an honor, and I am eager to see who will join the ranks of Great Graduates this year.”
