Olivia Fry and Josh Paisley represented BSSD yesterday at the John Travers Award luncheon for their leadership qualities on the playing field, in the classroom and in their community. Congratulations Josh and Olivia on a well deserved award! 




Last evening Josh Paisley and Marissa Emlet represented Big Spring High School at the South Central Chapter of PA Sports Hall of Fame Award Banquet.  This Award is given to the most outstanding male and female athlete for the 2015 -2016 sports season as voted on by the head coaches at Big Spring HS.  This year the South Central Chapter of PA awarded Six - $500 winners (3 males and 3 females).  Both Josh and Marissa walked away last night with a check in hand.  Congratulations Josh and Marissa for achieving such a prestigious award!



James Crummel from ABC27 news visited Big Spring High School to do an interview for his featured weekly Crummel’s Classroom segment on abc27.com.  Students enrolled in the Business Incubator program get to show off their ingenuity and creativity. Young entrepreneurs come up with their own business ideas, and work all year putting it together. At the end of the year, they will pitch their suggestions to local investors. If they get a yes, next year they will actually work to make their businesses dreams a reality.  Check out the feature at:
