Whitewashing the “B”–a Tradition Renewed

Perry Newman '73

  Bingham Students Renew Tradition  (taken from the Jordan District Website) Drive up the Old Bingham Highway toward Copperton and you will be witness to one of the longest running traditions of the Salt Lake Valley, one that can be seen from miles around. For as long as anyone can remember, rocks that form the letter ‘B’ have been painted on the side of the mountain. The ‘B’ stands for Bingham High School, a school with a rich history that traces its roots to the start of mining along the Oquirrh Mountains. Recently, a group of students, alumni, teachers and administrators renewed the tradition of repainting the ‘B’ on the side of the mountain. A team of nearly 100 people hiked to the ‘B’, cleared sagebrush, then rearranged and whitewashed the rocks that lay on property owned by Rio Tinto at the site of their Kennecott Utah Copper Mine. This tradition was an annual one, however due to landslides and unstable footing the ‘B’ could not be accessed...  Read More »

2016 Pay Dirt Club-Hall of Fame Recipients David Gourley and Rebecca Chavez-Houck

Bingham High Pay Dirt Club 2016 By Scott Crump A miner in the early days of Bingham Canyon, who struck it rich was said to have struck pay dirt.  Those miners would take a mule, shovel, pick and dynamite along with a drill bit and double jack and work hundreds of hours drilling, blasting and shoveling.  With a combination of hard work and little bit of luck a miner might find a rich vein of gold silver of copper ore.  This was “dirt” that paid him money or pay dirt.  Striking pay dirt symbolizes a successful miner.  Because of this, Bingham High School’s Hall of Fame is called the Pay Dirt Club.   Two successful Bingham Miners, Rebecca Chavez-Houck (Class of 1978) and David Gourley (Class of 1970) were formally inducted into the Bingham High School Pay Dirt Club at the homecoming assembly on September 21, 2016. REBECCA CHAVEZ-HOUCK (Class of 1978) Rebecca Chavez-Houck grew up on a produce farm in Riverton, where her family grew sugar beets, tomatoes, corn and ...  Read More »

Alumni Foundation Awards 2016 Scholarships

Bingham Alumni Foundation Scholarship Night by Scott Crump Always a highlight of the year for the Bingham Alumni Foundation is Scholarship Night.  This year it was held on May 17, 2016 and it proved to be a night of excitement for not only the Bingham Alumni Foundation, but also for the senior scholarship winners chosen to be in attendance.  This year the Foundation was able to award over $18,000 in scholarships due to the generosity of Bingham High School’s alumni and friends.  The 12 highly deserving recipients were chosen from the nearly 60 students who applied by the April 22nd deadline.  The Foundation Scholarship Committee, chaired by Deanne Curtis, then examined the applications and gave each student points based on their, Grade Point Average, ACT score, extracurricular activities, leadership positions held, advanced classes taken (AP, Concurrent and Honors courses), letters of recommendation, need, service and goals in life.   The top 12 students were then invited to...  Read More »

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’s 40th Anniversary Celebration a Huge Success

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 »
