Magis Notes for September
Posted by Amanda Kelly on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 1:20 PM PDT
Jesuit education can impact a person well beyond years spent as a student. Jesuit-educated alumnus Mark A. Flynn (Saint Louis University1967, 1972) credits Fr. Tom Cummings, S.J. (president of Rockhurst High School in Kansas City where his sons attended high school), with part of his formation. Fr. Cummings poignantly said "a talent is not a gift until it is given away". This line has stuck with Mark through all the many personal and professional experiences he has had since. Be sure to read more of Mark's story, as well as those of other fellow Jesuit-educated alumni and how they are staying rooted in the mission of Jesuit education by visiting Alumni Living the Mission.
