“STV was instrumental in both my educational and emotional development. It truly was a community that nurtured and developed each and every student and laid the foundation for success later in life. St. Thomas was an extension of each of our family lives in that the things we were taught in our homes were reinforced during our time at school. The result of this consistent approach to life, not just education, taught us individual responsibility, mutual respect for others, and the value of community. These are the basic tenets that have served me well throughout my life. St. Thomas laid the foundation that has allowed me to be successful first at Loyola Academy, then Georgetown University and University of Chicago, and ultimately in my career at Goldman Sachs and DRW. Most importantly though, STV infused in me a sense of right and wrong, provided discipline and structure, and created a sense of self worth and confidence that I strive to instill in my own children today. The adage "It takes a village to raise a child" is embodied by St. Thomas as it builds the leaders of tomorrow.”
