The Gaul Family: A Story of RBC Legacy

The legacy of the Gaul family runs deep at RBC. Jim Gaul ('76), our new Director of Safety and Security, is a third generation Casey family member. His grandfather, John P. Gaul, attended RBC (then called St. James High School) in the early 1900's. His father, Danny, graduated in 1947, a few years later than his class members of '45, as he had an interim period serving in the Navy. Jim's mom, Millie, although not an "official" Casey graduate, was a well known and loved fixture on campus for over 25 years, working in the guidance department and for St. James Parish.

The Gaul family resided in Red Bank and Jim and his three sisters, Mary Anne ('78), Clare ('80), and Barbara ('81) attended RBC one after another, leaving their mark as they walked the halls as Caseys. Jim fondly remembers his time on campus in the mid 70's, where the faith, values and traditions instilled in him influenced his career path to serve others.  "Our Mission Statement says it all.  Red Bank Catholic prepared my family to succeed in every aspect of our lives, starting in 1909 when my grandfather graduated from St. James High School," Jim said.

Jim spent the bulk of his career in law enforcement, first as a Police Officer in Allenhurst for over 27 years, retiring as a Sergeant, and then at Monmouth University as a patrol officer for 15 years. He recently began a new chapter which has brought him back, full circle, to Red Bank Catholic. He has taken on the role of Director of Safety and Security for the entire campus. He joins another very familiar face, his son Kevin, each day. Kevin joined Red Bank Catholic in 2018 as an assistant football coach and physical education teacher. He is now that department's chairperson and continues coaching football and golf. Kevin is also the primary strength and conditioning coach for Red Bank Catholic during the winter season. Four generations of their family have now walked the RBC grounds in the past 120 years.

The Gaul family is one example of one of many legacy families that have, do and will continue to attend Red Bank Catholic High School. The values, customs and pride found at RBC are deeply rooted in tradition that is often celebrated from generation to generation. That level of familiarity and community is one of the reasons Red Bank Catholic is such a special place.
