“My time at Lourdes was foundational not only in preparing me for higher education and my career but also for the rest of my life. Excellence in academics and a disciplined work ethic were instilled in me at Lourdes – in the classroom, on the court, in our communities. What distinguishes a Lourdes education is that it develops these qualities and life skills while also shaping students’ values, morals, and spirituality through the Catholic faith. I am blessed that this was an extension of what my parents (also both Lourdeans) have instilled in our family growing up. Lourdeans past, present, and future embodies the definition of ‘family’ – and it is one that I cherish.”
