    Bill A. MacNeill
    Bill A. MacNeill passed to eternal life on May 27, 2014. Father to Andrew '78, John '83, Larry '84 grandfather to Conor '15, Kyle '16, Cade '18.  Please keep the entire MacNeill family in your thoughts and prayers during this time. Friend, educator, mentor, coach and Director of Development were just a few of the hats Bill MacNeill wore for BC High. 

    His career began in 1956 and for the next 35 years Bill served as teacher, coach and later vice president for development. Many teachers looked to Bill as paving the way for their own teaching careers. In 1971, recognizing the declining Jesuit endowment, Bill established the first development program in collaboration with the alumni office headed by Rev. Francis J. Mahoney, SJ. During his time, he implemented a class agent system, Golden Reunions, The Magis Guild, Businessman’s Luncheons, and Ignatius Awards making BC High a model for Catholic school fundraising in the area.

    Sheila Becker-Gailius
    Mrs. Sheila Becker-Gailius, a beloved teacher at BC High for the past 30 years, passed to eternal life on March 9, 2014 after a hard-fought battle with ovarian cancer. Please keep the entire Gailius family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
    Sheila’s career began on Morrissey Boulevard in the fall of 1984 when she began teaching French in the Modern Language Department. Her teaching, counseling and ministry spanned three decades and touched the lives of many students, parents, faculty and staff. Aside from teaching French and Spanish, Sheila was instrumental in developing the school’s outreach and support programs for the sons of new immigrants entering the BC High community. Sheila created and staffed the school’s initial tutorial programs for students for whom English was a second language. Her work went beyond language instruction as she helped families connect with social service agencies, helping them establish roots in their new home.
