Copperton Bingham High School Monument in Copperton Park

If you have not been to the Copperton Park lately, you will need to make a visit to see the new monument erected to the Copperton Bingham High School.  Using bricks and capstones from the beautiful art-deco structure, Maynard John Berg, his committee from the Class of 1961, Bill Nicholls, and all the members of the "Let's Never Forget the Copperton Bingham High School" Club constructed a lasting memorial to the Copperton building.   In ceremonies held on July 4, 2016, the structure was dedicated by Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams.   The program began with the unveiling of the monument while audience members sang Bingham's fight song, "Bingham's Sons and Daughters." Next comments about the history of its construction were made by John Berg and Bill Nicholls after which Mayor McAdams spoke on the history of education in Bingham and the importance of Bingham High School to the Bingham community.  The day's events ended on a somber note with the playing of taps by Sergeant Ren Willie...  Read More »

Bingham High’s Sophia Foresta Chosen National Athlete of the Month

FEB. 23, 2016  Sports Illustrated National High School Athlete of the Month: Sophia Foresta   Bingham High School This past November, over Thanksgiving weekend, the cavernous, 448,000-square-foot River Spirit Expo building located on the Tulsa State Fairgrounds in Tulsa, Okla., was transformed into a dirt-track paradise of hills, jumps and turns as it is every year that weekend. That’s when USABMX’s Grand Nationals, the sport’s marquee event and culmination of the yearlong season, rolls into town. On the final day of the three-day competition, one girl among the hundreds of riders there to compete had her headphones on, flipping between her favorite Pandora stations—“Heavy Metal Radio” and “Rap and Hip-Hop Pre-Game Radio.” Over the course of the weekend, Sophia Foresta had gone undefeated in four rounds to earn a spot among the final eight riders in the championship round of the girls 15-16 age group, an elite lineup winnowed down from a group of the 52 fastest...  Read More »

Bingham High will send 5 graduates to U.S. military academies

By Morgan Jacobsen, Deseret News Published: Sunday, April 10 2016 3:25 p.m. MDT SOUTH JORDAN — Bingham High School senior Charlie Baggett had to get a personal nomination from a member of Utah's congressional delegation as part of his college application. But that wasn't the hardest part. His application also included an assortment of strength and cardiovascular drills, medical examinations, essays and interviews on leadership experience, and academic recommendations from several teachers. Once he enrolls, the real work will begin. But a diverse set of lifelong rewards are worth the unique challenges of attending one of the five U.S. service academies, according to Baggett, who was recently admitted to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. "It's unlike anything else," Baggett said. Bingham High School is sending five members of its class of 2016 to U.S. service academies. It's an uncommon occurrence given that each student's admittance to a military...  Read More »

Bingham Basketball Wins Ninth State Championship in Basketball’s Centennial Year

Deseret News Sunday March 6, 2015  by Brandon Gurney SALT LAKE CITY — About two years ago Bingham coach Jake Schroeder began to think he had the type of team to win it all. On Saturday his team proved him right correct as the Miners thumped Copper Hills 61-44 to capture the 5A state basketball title. As his players began cutting down the nets in celebration, Schroeder was at a loss for words. “I’m numb,” Schroeder said. “This is an unbelievable feeling and I’ve always dreamed of this when I was a player at the other end. I’m just happy for these guys. They put in so much work, they trusted the coaching staff and golly, I’m just glad they get to reap the fruits of their work.” To get by the Grizzlies, Schroeder's team simply did what it's done throughout the 5A state tournament — starting a bit slow, but then ending with speed no other team in the state could match. Bingham's breakneck pace was never more evident than in the third quarter. Trailing...  Read More »

Bingham’s 40th Anniversary Celebration a Huge Success

By Julie Slama  South Jordan Journal October 2015 A tradition was broken after more than 40 years at the recent Bingham High celebration of the school being in South Jordan. For years, classmates and alumni stand reverently after the performance of the school hymn, “We’ll Always Remember,” with their arms crossed, representing their miner mascot, with their hand feigning to have a pick over the heart and the other, having a shovel crossing over. However, on Sept. 12, the crowd of about 300 Miners and community members broke into applause with a standing ovation after 102-year-old former music teacher Lowell Hicks played the school hymn on the marimbas.  He composed the tune in 1953. Hicks thanked the crowd, then joked that he had to break off a previous engagement to play that night. “I cancelled my date with America’s Got Talent where I was going to play ‘Flight of the Bumble Bee,’” he said. The night was filled of other talent including a so...  Read More »
