President/CFO, Hightop Hospitality
How has your high school experience impacted your life?
Derham Hall provided me with a strong foundation upon which I conduct both my personal and professional life. I learned traits such as honesty, compassion, integrity, loyalty, responsibility, and fairness. The lifelong friendships I made at Derham were life-changing and to this day impact me and my family like no others. It is a true community that supports one another through all of the ups and downs of life.
What advice would you give a current CDH student?
Be open to all of the new experiences Cretin-Derham Hall has to offer. Don't be afraid to push yourself, you'll be amazed at the wonderful opportunities you might otherwise have missed.
"Be honest. Be humble. Listen more than you talk.” ― Jeff Zentner, Goodbye Days
