BG FBLA students recently attended the 64th PA State FBLA Leadership conference in Hershey.  During the conference, students competed in various events, attended workshops, and networked with business professionals.  Tim Bartkowiak placed 5th in computer problem solving. Tim has been offered the opportunity to attend the FBLA national leadership conference to be held in Chicago, IL from 6-29 to 7-3-15.  Taylor Johnsonbaugh placed 2nd in the open competitive events for human resource management. 
Our FBLA chapter has only been active for three years.  In those three years, BG students have attended the state leadership conference every year. Each year, we have had a student place in the top 10 in their event.  Michael Fox has had the opportunity to attend the conference all three years. 
Congratulations to the following students who attended the conference:
Ryan Evanko, Tim Bartkowiak, Ben McConnell, Jayden Jackson, Michael Fox, Taylor Johnsonbaugh, Carly Rickens, Nicole Watt, Ryley Lewis, Brayley Lewis, Emily Yanoshak. Read more...

At Bishop Guilfoyle, it is highly encouraged for our Students, Families, Staff, and Administration to participate in different forms of Community Service throughout the year.  With Academics, Athletics, and Activities quickly filling up our calendars, we sometimes forget the importance of volunteering and helping others.  However, when a Student maintaining a GPA of 3.5 who is involved in multiple Sports and Activities shares his story, it is a quick reminder of the impact your volunteer efforts can make.  We at Bishop Guilfoyle commend Sam McCloskey for being recognized for his inspirational efforts and congratulate him on receiving the Joseph D. Sarra Community Service Award at the Central Pennsylvania National Football Foundation’s Scholar-Athlete banquet (led by chapter president, Ron Pavlechko) at Penn State University on March 22.
