How you have commuted to school throughout the years?

I took the Greenbush commuter rail until I received my license. I carpooled with friends.

What BC High means to you:

To me, BC High means brotherhood — a group of young men who grow and mature together through academic rigor. It means using our success to care for those on the margins. Most importantly, it is a community where I can see God in every one of these boys I grew up with.

What teachers or guidance counselors say about you:

Ben’s reputation as a hard-working, scholar-athlete earns him the respect of his peers, coaches, and the faculty. He simply puts in the most hours and consistently seeks out feedback on how to improve. His effort is rooted in his commitment to reaching his full potential.

— Michael Gardner, Guidance Counselor
