• State College Spikes hold BASD Employee Appreciation Night for district staff

    Thanks to Taylor Young, the senior ticket account executive with the State College Spikes, the team honored employees from Bellefonte Area School District during BASD Employee Appreciation Night on July 26 during the game against the West Virginia Black Bears. District employees were able to sit together, watch the game, participate in on-field activities and more. Athletic teams from Bellefonte Area High School were also recognized, along with a pre-game performance by the cheer squad. We are appreciative to the Spikes for allowing us to do this.

    Those district employees who participated in on-field activities were Aaron Barto, Mike Baughman, Judy Ripka and Jen Walter. Music teacher Jessica Cetnar sang the national anthem. Lead custodian Jim Shaffer threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
