BSAA mourns loss of longtime co-chair
The Brighton Schools Alumni Association (BSAA) is deeply sad to announce that Pete Heinrich, BHS’55, has died. He was our longtime co-chair and a hugely important part of BSAA accomplishments and programs since the association began. The association is considering ways to honor his memory and will let classmates know when a decision is made. We are deeply appreciative of the generous contributions that Pete has left to the BSAA and our Scholarship program.
