Andrew Golebiowski
2011 Buffalo Bisons Polish-American of the Year

Andrew Golebiowski is a native of the Polish East Side of Buffalo. His parents immigrated to the United States in the 1950’s.

Golebiowski has become a member of many Polish community boards and organizations over the years. He was once the President of the Adam Mickiewicz Library and Dramatic Circle, the Corpus Christi Church Parish Council, Board Member of the Polish Community Center, the Permanent Chair of Polish Culture at Canisius College, as well as, the Polish American Congress-WNY Division.

Golebiowski founded the Polish Legacy Project of Buffalo, whose goals are to document the history of the Polish community in Western New York. One goal of the organization is to create a Museum of Polish Life in WNY. In 2009, the Leagacy Project organized an interational conference highlighting the sories of Polish World War II survivors who settled in Buffalo after the war.

Golebiowski works for WGRZ-TV* as a photojournalist where he has produced his own stories and won a New York State Emmy. Aside from his work at Channel 2, he doubles as a documentary film maker recording the stories of WWII survivors, and working on a film about the Polish-American sculptor Louis Dlugosz. Golebiowski also worked on the WNED produced documentary, Polonia.

Fluent in Polish, Golebiowski is a translator and interpreter, working for the International Institute and the Canadian Consulate, local and federal courts. Golebiowski also worked as a Polish language radio announcer with Stan Jasinski and Halina Jawor.

Between 1990-1993 Golebiowski was the Municipal Exchange Program Coordinator at Sister Cities International in Washington, D.C., a program which enabled newly elected Polish local government officials to be trained in their Sister Cities in the U.S.

Golebiowski has a B.A. in Sociology from Buffalo State College and a Master of Arts and Humanities from the University at Buffalo.

Golebiowski has also received the Am-Pol Eagle Citizen of the Year award twice, for promotion of heritage and culture.

Golebiowski attributes his achievements to those who came before him, saying “I am grateful to my parents and grandparents for instilling in me a love of God and of the Polish culture along with the importance of passing it on to future generations and sharing it with others. I am also thankful to the countless individual who have helped me in all the worthwhile endeavors I’ve been involved in in the community.”
