"Jacob is simply one of the best-ever educators I have ever known in my 40 years in education," said Mr. Dennis A. Daly, who retired as BC's principal at the end of the 2016-17 school year. "He is humble, intelligent, hardworking, ethical, loyal and mature well beyond his years. Why is Jacob so well thought of? Because no one out-works Jacob, no one has higher standards than Jacob, and no one is more consistent than Jacob."
