My St. Lawrence Experience: St. Lawrence University was very good to me and my four siblings, all of whom graduated from the University. We all benefited from the generosity and support of Laurentians who came before us, through significant scholarship support, constant moral support, and frequent opportunities for mentoring. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to St. Lawrence for helping me to become the person I am. St. Lawrence has helped me in every aspect of my personal and professional life, and I have been privileged to serve for the last 10 years on the Alumni Executive Council of the University, the last 2 years as Council’s President. This has given me the opportunity to begin to “pay it forward” to current and future Laurentians, though volunteering activities, fundraising, and mentoring. I look forward to remaining engaged with the University as long as I live, since all of us who are touched by St. Lawrence become “Laurentians for Life.”
