Alumni Spotlight

“I not only received the skills and knowledge to educate what I hope to be the ‘leaders and decision makers of tomorrow,’ at Marywood- but more importantly, I learned what it means to have zest, passion, joy, and love for others; and I am determined to spread that love for life and knowledge as far as my two feet will take me.”

"Traveling to Jamaica as life changing opportunity. I was beyond blessed to have been able to work with the residents at Blessed Assurance. There was no limit to the amount of love, affection, joy, and laughter that came from this service trip. After working, talking, learning, laughing, walking, and playing with the residents of all ages I feel as though I have been forever blessed." -Brooke Ackerman
