About the Beeline Bazaar
The Beeline Bazaar started more than a decade ago as an initiative led by the junior class to raise money for the student-run Community Service Endowment Fund and the traditional Junior-Senior Luncheon. In the past 11 years, the Beeline Bazaar has become a widely popular event in the Memphis community for both local vendors and shoppers. The Bazaar provides valuable, hands-on learning experiences for the students involved, teaching marketing, entrepreneurship, and event management skills to the Hutchison juniors who run the event.
The Beeline Bazaar also extends beyond Hutchison, as a majority of the proceeds are given back to the community through nonprofit grants to organizations that benefit the greater Memphis area. The money is allocated by the Hutchison Community Service Endowment Fund, which is directed by the student-run Philanthropic Literacy Board. Some of the nonprofits that we have granted money in years past include: Carpenter Art Garden and the Family Safety Center, as well as the Memphis Child Advocacy Center.
Middle and upper school girls participated in the 2019 World Language Fair at The University of Memphis where they demonstrated their knowledge of world languages and cultures along with more than 1,000 high school students in the Memphis area.
During her senior year at Hutchison, Brittany Trimble ’08 started charting her course. She emailed a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force and said something along the lines of: “I hear you’re a fighter pilot, and I would like to be one. Please help me.”
Trimble admitted her note was a bit more formal than that. But that was the gist.
