Dear Alumni Choir Members, This is a letter received from Logan Bingham (Mr. Bingham from Bingham) who was just appointed as the new choir director at Bingham: In an effort to honor and highlight the legacy of the Bingham High Choir program and connect with Alumni, we are hosting an alumni reunion night/concert at BHS on September 22, 2023. I’m calling it “We’ll Always Remember…” which is the first line of the Bingham High Hymn that is sung at almost every major event held at Bingham High! We have 3 of the previous choir teachers from Bingham High coming to attend the event: Jolene Dalton Gailey (who taught choir at Bingham from 1984-1991), LeAnna Willmore (who taught choir at Bingham from 1991-1999), and Kerrin Gates (who taught choir at Bingham from 2009-2014).

Bingham Minerettes 3-peat as 6A state champions
Bingham Minerettes 3-peat as 6A state champions

Bingham showed off Saturday afternoon at UVU why it’s again the premier drill team program in the state. The Minerettes dominated at Saturday’s 6A state championships, sweeping all three categories en route to a third straight state championship and the 10th in program history. “This season required a lot of perseverance, resiliency, mental toughness and determination for the Minerettes. After taking a second place at one of our invitational competitions, they had to decide if they were going to rise or fall. They did not waste any time deciding. The next day I got texts from some of my leadership ready to make a plan to move forward and at the very next practice the team decided they were going to do whatever it would take,” said Bingham coach Erika Cox. “The way they bounced back so fast and their trust in me as a coach gave me more momentum. From that moment on, I watched them give everything they had until the very end. The following weeks involved literal blood, sweat,...

Bingham Highs First School Year 1908-1909
Bingham High's First School Year 1908-1909

September 9, 2020 marks the 112th birthday for Bingham High School. Bingham High first opened its doors on September 9, 1908. As Bingham Miner Alumni, we can all celebrate the beginning of our alma mater in the narrow confines of Bingham Canyon in the upstairs room of the town's community center known as Canyon Hall. Since that first year in the City of Bingham's Canyon Hall, Bingham High has had five different locations: three in Bingham Canyon (1908-1931), one in Copperton (1931-1975) and the current location in South Jordan (1975-2020). Although it may be difficult for some to believe, as of 2020, Bingham High School's South Jordan campus surpassed the 44 years Bingham High was located in Copperton.   The following is a summary of the first school year of 1908-1909 at Bingham High. We have certainly come a long way since then. For more information on Bingham High's history see Bingham High School--The First Hundred Years (1908-2008) by Scott Crump.     ...
