About Connie Brown
Connie McGill Brown was born on December 3, 1952 and passed away on November 8, 2017.
Mrs. Brown began working in the cafeteria at Boyd Buchanan in 1994 where she cooked for children and staff for almost 20 years.
When Boyd Buchanan started taking groups to the City of Children orphanage in Ensenada, Mexico Mrs. Brown went with the group and cooked for the first seven years.
Every year around Thanksgiving Mrs. Brown baked pies and sold them to raise money to help provide financial assistance to students who wanted to go on the City of Children trip and needed help raising the money. She baked hundreds of pies over the years to benefit students.
BBS is a rare and special place! I am an alumnus of BBS. I now have three children attending. We are thrilled to be a part of this learning community!

Tina Lee, Faculty
I have truly seen God work at Boyd Buchanan as a student, a teacher, a parent, and an administrator. Mission-centered and Spirit led. I cannot begin to describe the impact Boyd Buchanan has had on my life and my family. I am proud to be a Buccaneer!
Renee Hood, High School Principal ('87 Alumni)
"The most beneficial part was that I pushed myself to take the AP and accelerated courses. I was very pleased to get to college with 17 credit hours, a whole semester under my belt! Dual enrollment completely paid off!"
Haley Kinser, Class of 2013
"The biggest thing BBS did was teach me study habits. The upper level classes that were offered taught me how to be dedicated to studying and has led me to being successful in college."
Grant Mathis, Alumni c/o 2010
"I was fully equipped with study skills and the ability to lead both inside and out of the classroom. Boyd taught me to expect more from myself and to continually push myself."
Andrew Peace, Alumni c/o 2012
"The teachers cared about us succeeding and doing well, without sacrificing good teaching for good grades. Some teachers taught exactly like professors at Lipscomb. My high school experiences really prepared me for college."
Margaret Rox, Alumni c/o 2012
