BSHS Auditorium Revitalization 

On November 14, the Hillsborough County School Board unanimously approved the naming of Bloomingdale Senior High School’s auditorium to the ‘Sutherland Hall for Performing Arts' in memory of Beverly "Bev" Sutherland.


Ms. Sutherland was a teacher of music education in Hillsborough County for almost 40 years. She made Bloomingdale her home, serving for 20 of those years in various roles within the music department; including choir director, assistant band director, orchestra teacher and Crimson Guard flag corps assistant.  

 

The School district of Hillsborough County is appropriating funds for improvements to Sutherland Hall. Upon the completion of these improvements, there will be an official dedication of Sutherland Hall, marking the future of the performing arts at Bloomingdale High School, highlighting the refreshed hall and, of course, the legacy of Bev Sutherland.

Although some improvements are in the works with district support, as Bev would say, there is always room for more. Therefore, we are looking for support to enhance the 'facelift' of Sutherland hall through a tax-deductible donation the donations levels are as follows:

Maestro's Circle ............ $10,000 and up

Artist's Circle ................ $1,000 - $9,999

Sustainers ................................ $100 - $999

Patrons ............................................. $26 - $99

Friends .............................................. Up to $25

With your donation of $100.00 or more, you/your families name will be engraved on a name plate and placed on a plaque next to Bev's Portrait at Sutherland Hall.
