Tribute Award
Distinguished Alumni Award
Brad Smith Brad Smith taught art at Brighton High School from 1951 through 1981. This award, made possible by the generous support of his family, honors Brad's contribution to art education in Brighton.

The BHS art teachers select two Brighton seniors annually who excel in two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. Presented at the Awards Assembly in May, this award enables Brighton High School to purchase a piece from each recipient for its permanent collection.

The collection of work built through the D. Bradley Smith Art Purchase Award is currently on display in the conference room in the Technology Department office on the first floor of the high school (the former Teachers Center conference room).
