That's President Herman to you

January 29, 2013

SU Jesuit Lorenzo Herman, who is studying in the School of Theology and Ministry, has been installed as president of the National Black Catholic Seminarians Association.

A recent article on Herman's installation, which appears on the Society of Jesus in the United States website, begins:

"Jesuit Lorenzo Herman’s life is anything but predictable. Prior to joining the Society of Jesus in 2007, Herman – known for his nerves of steel – worked an in-flight refueling specialist aboard a KC135 Stratotanker, a flying gas station. After leaving the Air Force, Herman turned his attention to nonprofit work, spending the better part of a decade helping African-American and Latino HIV and AIDS patients navigate the healthcare system. This week, the Cleveland native takes the reins of the National Black Catholic Seminarians Association. Not bad for a kid raised a Baptist."
