  • Gerald F. Schroer, Jr. '82

    Jerry came to appreciate the Jesuit way of teaching and living more and more after his graduation from Saint Ignatius. Although he didn't fully see it while he was a student, his time at West 30th and Lorain built a foundation of Ignatian values that has shaped his life and career.

  • Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Carney '59

    Tom Carney grew up an only child on the west side of Cleveland. A conversation with legendary Saint Ignatius coach John Wirtz spurred him into attending West Point. After his retirement as a lieutenant general, he said, "I believe I brought many men to Christ, in and out of the war zones of my history."
