HIBster and HIBsterVention

Major Conference Sponsor

Educational Development Software (Richland Twp, Cambria County) is a rapidly growing company specializing in the creation of software programs centered on student support services.

In addition to an anti-bullying software (HIBster) and an MTSS program (HIBsterventio), the company just added the aSAP! program.  The acronym stands for “a student assistance program” and allows schools to handle the complete SAP process seamlessly.

Completely electronic, the program begins with staff referral to the SAP team.  From there, the team can request observations to be completed and compiled.  The team can also handle the completion of Form 4092 for each referral.

Educational Development Software (EDS) is now proudly serving schools in 4 states and is excited about helping more schools with their student support services.  Learn more about the company by reviewing the company website at hibreporting.com or contact their director of education, Dr. Jim Budzilek at jbudzilek@pittbullsecure.com.

 Somerset Trust Company, Somerset, PA

Conference Scholarship Sponsor

Our mission as an independent community bank has remained unchanged for over 125 years. We are committed to providing excellent service and competitive products as well as maintaining a high profile in the growth and economic development of Somerset and Cambria counties in Pennsylvania.

In 1889, the town of Somerset, described by a newspaper at that time as “an aggressive mountain town”, was growing with a population of almost 4,000. Businessmen and community leaders realized the emerging need for a local bank if their community was to continue to thrive. Congressman and Civil War veteran Edward Scull, and the fourth of his six sons, George R. Scull, turned that vision into a reality when they established what was to become Somerset Trust Company.

The more than 300 people employed by Somerset Trust Company are committed to a common mission – to provide excellent personal service and financial products to customers, and to contribute to the overall growth and economic development of the region. You can depend on Somerset Trust Company to serve the best interest of our community, customers, shareholders, and staff far into the future.

Holy Family Institute

Session Breakout Sponsor

Holy Family Institute provides help, healing, hope and support to children and families in western Pennsylvania. From alternative learning environments and career training, to families in need of support and counseling – including help with addiction, alcoholism and other debilitating problems – Holy Family is here. In 2014 alone, more than 27,000 families and children were able to improve their lives with the help of our donors and volunteers.

The families we serve often have experienced significant trauma in their lives and need caring and support in order to heal. For this reason, Holy Family maintains a trauma-sensitive culture throughout our programs and services.

In order to accomplish our mission to serve children and families and crisis, we work to generate funding for our programs and collaborate with community leaders and organizations to tap the best resources available to serve them. We provide care within the community to ensure that families have all the tools they need to thrive, with easier access to the resources they need to establish personal responsibility and stability.
