On Saturday, April 9, we held our fifth annual PAW Power Athletic Hall of Fame banquet.

Congratulations to the five inductees who joined the Husky Hall of Fame: standout athletes Doris Beaty Smith, Tom Carney, and Josh Vasilko along with football coach Charlie Koren and Husky pride champion Fred McCabe. The dinner, hosted by the PAW Power Athletic Group, paid tribute to these individuals, who have brought pride and recognition to the BCCHS athletic program and community, and who are respected citizens of good character in their communities and professions.

“Our committee prides itself on selecting individuals who have contributed to the athletic program at Bishop Carroll, bringing exceptional pride to Husky Hill,” said Rick Surkovich, president of PAW Power and chairperson of the PAW Power Athletic Hall of Fame.

Student Explore Careers at Conemaugh Miners Medical Center

In March, our students had the pleasure of visiting Conemaugh Miners Medical Center to learn about potential career opportunities. This visit was just one of many opportunities provided by faculty and staff for students to explore different career paths as they prepare for their future.

On this occasion, students participated in a panel discussion at the facilities in Hastings in recognition of National Patient Safety Week. The panel was arranged by The Challenge Program, Inc., a local nonprofit that builds sustainable partnerships between businesses and schools while introducing students to careers in their communities.

Students Hike 1,000 Steps in Mapleton, PA

On April 1, the top-performing boys and girls in the physical fitness test went to the 1,000 Steps in Mapleton, PA (located between Huntingdon and Lewistown). This trip was an opportunity for students to explore one of many local places where they can continue a lifelong wellness program.

It’s a long walk to the top, but everyone on the trip made it and then hiked around for about an hour. “I think this was a trip they will remember,” said Mr. Grosser, Physical Education teacher. “Our hope is they will take their friends there, and when they are adults, they will take their children.”

Students Attend Annual Chrism Mass

Students attended the annual Chrism Mass, as always, to celebrate our unity with the church and our Catholicism.

This annual mass of the Diocese is held during Holy Week where the Bishop blesses the holy oils that will be used throughout the year in the parish churches and each priest recommits himself to his ministry.
