I did not fully appreciate the value of a St. Laurence education when I was a student. As I got older it became apparent that the lessons I learned there gave me an essential moral foundation. In our very complicated world it is difficult to always do the Right Thing. I think it is important for all alumni to realize that we have a responsibility to give back to the institution that helped shape our lives.

Favorite Quote: “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader” John Quincy Adams

St. Laurence is truly Where Leadership Begins. I am lucky to be a 1986 graduate and of service to the school 30 years later.
