Joe Krug ’69 Honored for Wildlife Conservation Efforts

Over the years, Bishop Carroll graduate Joe Krug (Class of 1969) has been recognized with numerous local, regional, and statewide awards for his work in wildlife conservation. His most recent recognition came from the National Wild Turkey Federation, when he was presented with the Roger Latham Wildlife Conservation Award at their 40th annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show in Nashville, Tennessee.

The award is given to NWTF members who are not employed as professional wildlife managers, but have made significant contributions to wildlife conservation.

Joe has been actively involved in wildlife conservation for more than 36 years. During this period, he has propagated and donated nearly 250,000 tree seedlings and more than 3,000 potted fruit plants that will provide food and cover for wildlife.

Students Gain New Friends and New Outlook During Study Abroad Trip

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.

Important Message from CEO Jerry Stephens

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.
