**From C. Diane Bishop:
"When Fenton High School was built to replace BCHS in
1955, it maintained the mascot, the colors, and the song, but changed the BCHS in the song to "On FHS". My
parents attend BCHS from 1936-1940 and I have their yearbooks, with much history and many pictures of the school, students,
clubs and teams. Also, my grandfather William Bishop, was a member of the BCHS school board for many
BCHS became Blackhawk Jr. High, which I attended, when Fenton was built. Regretfully, the village tore
the building down this past spring (2013)."
