BCHS is saddened upon the recent passing of a member of our Eagle family, James Gillette.

“He inspired many students through the years with his spirit, energy and passion for music,” said Wagner. “James had the gift of being able to connect with his students in a way that made them feel like the band room and the school was their second home. He saw the leadership potential in his students and pushed them to greater heights. He helped so many to discover the beauty of music while at Boulder City High School. He was funny, kind, compassionate, determined and witty. He was a husband, father, educator and my friend, whose legacy will live on in the lives of all he touched.”

– Boulder City High School Principal Amy Wagner
