Alumni at Work

Kevin Kearns ’16

Through my experiences on the NWC cross country team, in various bands, and in choirs, I learned a great deal about what it means to work with others toward a goal. Even more important than achieving each goal, however, was how I learned to love and serve others in that community.

Glendowlyn L.H. Thames '99

Northwest Catholic fostered a community of learning, service, and friendship. The foundation I received at Northwest Catholic has shaped my path in life personally, professionally, and most of all spiritually.

Desi Nesmith '97

I profoundly remember my experience with ACTS (A Chance to Serve). The experience of the trip to Chicago to volunteer in a homeless shelter has remained with me to this day. It made me acutely aware of the world around me and my role in it -- to help others.

David Grew '00

Treating cancer patients goes far beyond the science of medicine. Making a personal connection with my patients and truly understanding their emotional and spiritual needs are often the most rewarding aspects of my work.

Kevin Hughes ’77

NWC played a big role in guiding my decision to choose non-profit management. Whether it's human services programming or arts and culture, serving the common good has always been a key motivator for me

- Kevin Hughes

Catie Talarski ’99

My experiences at the Catholic Worker House in Hartford led me to incorporate service into my college experience through choosing to minor in service learning, after college by spending a year as a Jesuit Volunteer, and in my career when working with students on community service projects.

Patrick Skahill '02

A lot of my job is reporting on the environment. NWC taught me environmental stewardship and social justice are the same and that we all have a responsibility to care for our planet. 

- Patrick Skahill

Jason Lambert '95

During high school I developed a routine of going to Mass not at my family's parish but at St. Mary's in Simsbury to hear Fr. Bock's sermons. These early times helped set a foundation of the importance of the Mass in my life that I now pass along to my children.

Diana Chin '08

NWC challenged me academically, from analyzing British literature to calculating compound interest, but most important NWC rewarded me with lifelong friends.
