One of the hardest-working student organizations at Bishop Carroll Catholic High School is the Student Ambassadors. This group of juniors and seniors work with Mr. Nagy to develop programs with the grade schools of the Prince Gallitzin Quadrant. The Student Ambassadors are made up of individuals who represent many aspects of BCCHS, including sports teams, organizations, and sending grade school.
During the course of the year, the Student Ambassadors host the elementary and junior high students at a variety of events at Bishop Carroll, including but not limited to celebration nights at football and basketball games, a Halloween Trick or Treat, several visit days, a dance, and a pizza party. Each event is designed to draw the Catholic School community of the Prince Gallitzin Quadrant closer together and demonstrate that we are one family in faith!
The Student Ambassadors also work diligently to represent Bishop Carroll in a variety of ways, including service projects to help the community. The volunteer countless hours to assist in fundraisers and public relation events for the school.
Several Bishop Carroll Student Ambassador Alumni are continuing their work at their respective colleges and universities. 2019 graduates Kaylee Schall (IUP), Sarah Farabaugh (UPJ), and Tori Wirfel (Robert Morris) are currently in their schools Ambassador programs, carrying on the tradition set at Bishop Carroll. 2018 BC graduate Mattie Bossler is at Saint Francis University. During her sophomore year at SFU, she was on orientation counselor, was promoted to assistant director of orientation during her junior year, and now as a senior, she is senior director of orientation. Her team is in charge of welcoming new students to SFU. She assisted with move in day and then the four-day orientation period, full of events. She said, “Our main goal was to make the transition from high school or another college/university as seamless and comfortable as possible. Being a BC Student Ambassador helped me throughout this journey. It assisted me in acquiring the skill set needed to lead and work well with a team. I attribute a lot of my success with orientation at Saint Francis to the BC Student Ambassador program. Leadership opportunities like that are ones that shouldn’t be taken for granted, and they helped me become the leader I am today.”
Senior Chief Ambassador Alayna Przybys remarked, “As an ambassador for the school, I have a very important job to do. Many people do not know this, but student ambassadors take care of most student activities. We also are in charge of keeping up student morale by listening to fellow students and making changes for the good of the student body. Student Ambassadors is a great leadership club that everyone should consider!”
Thank you to the Student Ambassadors for all of the hard work that you do in promoting the school!
