This summer has brought many Bishop Carroll classes back together, including the class of 1996 (pictured to the left), who celebrated 20 years.
The class of 1966 also celebrated 50 years.
Eight of our students took the trip of a lifetime when they visited Ambialet, France, as part of a dual-enrollment program with Saint Francis University. While there, students had the amazing opportunity to stay in Saint Francis University’s newly-renovated monastery, overlooking the village and the Tarn River. The trip was Saturday, June 11 through Sunday, June 19.
“The places we went, the things we did, and the people we met really made this a once in a lifetime trip,” said rising junior Mariah Farabaugh.
The Saint Francis University Summer Study Abroad is now in its third year. This was the first year that Bishop Carroll was involved, travelling with students from Bishop Guilfoyle. The sophomore and juniors on the trip also earned college credits for their study of Early & Medieval Church History and Architecture, where they explored the birth of spirituality and the emergence of Christianity during the Roman Empire.
Cory Cree has been an athlete for most of his life and has been coaching soccer for more than 10 years. He’s now ready to bring his athleticism and coaching skills to the soccer fields of Bishop Carroll as the new coach for the girls’ soccer team starting this fall.
“I am looking forward to getting the team on the field,” said Cory, “to see their current skills and abilities, and to build on those skills and abilities, both as individual players and as a team.”
As fall quickly approaches, the Huskies are looking forward to a fresh season with revitalized programs and a new coach—and this season will mark the first full season playing on their new home field.
Chris Kozak, who has seven years of experience working with youth football in Westmont, joined Bishop Carroll as the new football coach in February. Even in the off season, he’s made an immediate impact, bringing new discipline to the student-athletes.
As part of their formal strength and conditioning program, students sign in and log their time spent at the gym.
“Seeing who is putting in more work than them motivates our student-athletes to work harder to keep their position on the field,” Kozak says. “The program really helps them build and develop a good work ethic and the mental toughness they’ll need for the season.”
Dear Alumni and Supporters of BC:
An issue has developed at Bishop Carroll that I want to bring to your attention. You may have already heard about this in the media.
On February 9, a student enrolled in Bishop Carroll’s Aquinas International Program made an allegation regarding a live-in house parent, which warranted an immediate call to law enforcement.
Upon hearing the allegation, the police were immediately contacted.
As a result of the allegation, the house parent was suspended from his position and removed from campus on February 9, and has not been permitted to return to campus since that time while police conducted a full investigation.
Our first priority at Bishop Carroll is the safety of every student at all times; and, we are cooperating fully with the ongoing investigation.
