The Goyette Scholarship Fund

Mr. Goyette began teaching at Bishop McNamara in 1978 – he was so favored by his students that the 1982 yearbook was dedicated to him. He was one of the most influential teachers to grace the classrooms of Bishop McNamara High School. He taught his students far more than academic studies; in true Holy Cross fashion, he educated the hearts of his students and helped them flourish into kind and dedicated members of their communities. His influence was so powerful, that it inspired one anonymous alumnus to create our Endowed Chair for Teaching Excellence in his name.

Mr. Goyette was renowned for his patience, courage, joyfulness, conviction, knowledge and humility. It is these qualities that are the true hallmark of a Bishop McNamara High School teacher – it is these qualities that work towards the education of the minds and hearts of our students. 

From tackling Milton’s Paradise Lost to the follies of Canterbury Tales, discovering the Grendel in each of us through Beowulf, being a member of King Arthur’s Knights of the Roundtable or bringing Shakespeare to life, Mr. Goyette inspired in so many of us a love of literature, and appreciation for story, and a hope-filled future for times better than these. During his tenure here he was a moderator, coach, prefect and served as principal for eight years. The title that he cherished the most, however, was to be called teacher.
