The BCS Legacy Award is set apart from the annual Awards of Excellence, and a recipient may or may not be selected in any given year. The BCS Legacy Award is given to a person or group who through their actions have created a legacy that will benefit the Billings Catholic Schools for years to come. The BCS Legacy Award may be given to a philanthropist, a volunteer, an educator, an employee, an alumnus, or any combination of those. The recipient will be a person whose life has been dedicated to fostering Catholic education and ensuring its future in Billings. The BCS Legacy Award celebrates a person who has positively impacted the lives of countless students and families through many years of service to Billings Catholic Schools, thereby creating a legacy that will continue to positively impact future generations of Catholic school students.

A nomination for the BCS Legacy Award can be put forth by submitting a letter outlining the accomplishments of the candidate. The nomination should be accompanied by written letters of support from various members of the BCS and Billings Catholic community, who can accurately and honestly describe the lifelong impact the nominee has had on Billings Catholic Schools.
