  • As the school year winds down, Bonham ISD is gearing up for what is certain to be a year to remember in 2014-2015. While this year's seniors didn't get to benefit from artificial turf and many of the other amenities, they will leave behind a unique legacy. A commemorative jersey signed by all the Bonham High School seniors who participated in athletics, band, cheerleading and pep squad was buried at the 50-yard line in a time capsule.
