"My sister, brother, and I all graduated from St. Rose-McCarthy. So did my three children. Being both an alumni and a parent allows me to have two perspectives of the school. The structure of faith, small classrooms, and family atmosphere helped me develop core values and grow closer to my faith. A faith that I rely on day in and day out. The fundamentals of education provided my children with a strong base and contributed to their success in college and their current careers. Both of my daughters have their masters degrees, and my son is currently serving his country in the Air Force and working on his bachelor’s degree. Parent involvement in fundraising activities provide an example to students of what hard work and teamwork can accomplish. The friendships that we developed working alongside other families will last a lifetime."
