We are a group of parents, community members and alumni who have formed The Senators' Success Fund to raise funds in support of the incredible efforts of the teachers, administrators and students at Brien McMahon High School.
Since being founded in 2013, the Senators' Success Fund has provided over $150,000 of funding to support Brien McMahon's educational mission, college process and the overall improvement of the school campus.
Some of SSF's accomplishments:

supported and assisted the expansion of the college fair, a college planning handbook and increasing individual college representative visits to the school
