North Catholic Students Visit AGH for the Open Heart Surgery Program

Several Anatomy and Physiology students from Mrs. Benzing and Mrs. Murray’s classes had the chance to visit Allegheny General Hospital Open Heart Surgery Program. Students watched an open heart surgery of a coronary artery bypass with a patient being a part of a random trial testing where all of the bypasses are arteries instead of veins. This real-world application of their anatomy studies gave students a meaningful understanding of the human body, while also exposing them to a variety of potential professions within the field of medicine. It’s really valuable because students not only see surgeons in action, but nurses, surgery techs, physician assistants, and anesthesiologists.

North Catholic Students Accept EITC Check

Students from North Catholic High School accepted a $12,000 check on behalf of Butler Co. families. The donation was made by Waste Management to the Bridge Educational Foundation. The program provides financial assistance to students through PA's EITC. NC is one of several Butler County school to receive funding and will receive a portion of the money. EITC allows business owners to divert state tax dollars to support schools by providing students scholarships and financial aid.
