LET’S LIGHT THE B FOR ALL TO SEE

The Bingham High School “B” has been a part of Salt Lake Valley’s Oquirrh Mountains since 1927. It is located near the birthplace of Bingham High School in Bingham Canyon, Utah.  BHS students, alumni and friends of Bingham High have started a project to raise funds to purchase lights and wiring to light this important part of Utah history. It would be a part of future celebrations at Bingham High as all eyes could turn to the Jumbotron in the football stadium and watch as the proud B high on the Oquirrh Mountains lights up beaming yet another Bingham victory across the Salt Lake Valley. The owners of the land on which the “B” was built, Kennecott Rio Tinto, have agreed to continue to allow students to annually maintain the 100′ by 80′ monument. An access road was built for maintenance purposes. Kennecott/Rio Tinto has even agreed to install the conduit and lights and to provide power from the nearby concentrator facility. Over 40,000 students have graduated from Bingham High School since it opened its doors in 1908. We want as many of those graduates as possible as well as current students, and the many friends of Bingham High School, to know about this project and to contribute to help make the 90 year old “B”—Our B Forever—both day and night.

Our goal is to raise $20,000, which will purchase the lights and wiring, by August 2018. We hope to have a grand lighting of the B ceremony for Bingham High’s 2018 Homecoming.
