Happy Heart ❤️ Health week Crushers!

Continuing to develop a heart safe school, We ended the week with an assembly by Dr. Ankur Doshi, MD on Knowing and Recognizing Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Dr. Doshi is a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and an Attended Physician at UPMC Presbyterian and UPMC Mercy Hospital. He gave a great presentation and encouraged all of our students to be a Superhero in a heart health emergency. We also finished the day with a cardiac drill to give our teacher and student Cardiac Response Team time to practice how to handle a cardiac emergency and use the AED. Special thanks to Dr. Doshi, Heather Newcomer, Jodie Bair, and our entire Cardiac Response Team.

Alumni

Alumni Image
Our Johnstown Catholic and Bishop McCort alumni can be found all around the world…some far beyond the halls where our current students walk…and even some just around the corner from 25 Osborne St.  Their legacy of pride, loyalty and tradition, as well as excellence in scholarship and education would not be possible without the continuing support and interest shown by so many of our alumni.

We would like to welcome you home to BMCHS any time you would like to visit.  Come tour the school and see the changes that have been made since you were here last.  Share your memories and Crusher traditions with our students. 

BMCHS is about “community.” We invite you, our alumni, to keep us up-to-date with news from your personal and professional lives including accolades received, personal accomplishments and news about births, deaths and other life events. Your former teachers, administrators, classmates and friends want to know what’s been going on in your life!

Please take time to explore the BMCHS Website and Alumni section.  We think you’ll find it informative about the school and your fellow alumni.  With your help, we can keep you and other alumni aware of where former Crusher classmates have been and where they are going.  Don’t hesitate to contact us via alumni@mccort.org if you have news to share or questions about reunions or other events. The Alumni section of the website is for you.
