Saint Ignatius High School

Four Grads Returning as Alumni Volunteers

For the 2017-2018 school year, four young alumni will work closely with the Christian Action Team, Sophomore Service and Arrupe through the Alumni Discernment and Volunteer Program. Opportunities for professional development, discernment and networking, plus free Ohio City living, are provided.

This year, Saint Ignatius High School will welcome four young alumni back to campus to serve in the Alumni Discernment and Volunteer Program. For more than 20 years, Alumni Volunteers have provided significant support to the Christian Action Team, Arrupe Neighborhood Partnership, Sophomore Service and other areas of campus while spending a year discerning their futures.

For 2017-2018, the Alumni Volunteers are:

Alex Aldana ‘12

Westlake, Ohio
The University of Toledo ’17 | B.S. Applied Mathematics
“The fact that I didn’t pursue volunteer opportunities in college is one of my main regrets of college life, and the ADVP seems like a fitting program to get back to doing something I enjoy, balanced with time for taking on the difficult task of discerning a vocation.”

Bob Lyons ‘10

Chicago, Illinois
The Ohio State University ‘14 | B.S. Biology
Loyola University Chicago ‘17 | M.A. Medical Sciences
“I feel called to this program because Saint Ignatius gave so much to me and helped me grow as a person that I want to give back to the school and community and help form other Men for Others. ... I have applied for medical school and if everything goes well, I will start classes in the [next] fall but I could not think of a better use of my time than serving others as an Alumni Volunteer.”

Nick Siciliano ‘13

Broadview Heights, Ohio
John Carroll University ’17 | B.A. Economics
“I feel called to this program because service to my community and to other individuals is truly my passion. I have always been involved in service, but recently that interest transformed into a passion I would like to pursue for, not just a year, but for my entire career, and subsequently, my life.”

Tom Szoradi ‘13

Lakewood, Ohio
Mount Saint Joseph University ’17 | B.F.A. Graphic Design
“ADVP acts as a time of reflection and discernment that will allow me to decide to continue education or begin my career path. Through my discernment period while in ADVP, I hope to use my professional advisor and spiritual advisor to my greatest ability to guide me to my next step in life to be able to answer the question, ‘What does God want from me?’”
