"Oh when the saints go marching in, When the saints go marching in..”. Today we recognize Saint Thomas Aquinas alum, Patrick Carter ‘96.
Patrick operates his own insurance agency, the Patrick Carter Insurance Agency. He is a parent to Aquinas students and has been a guest speaker to senior classes. His message to students is to find what you like, what makes you happy, no matter if it’s perceived as just a ‘regular’ job. “Students feel a lot of pressure to succeed and at Aquinas, where you’re surrounded by some of the brightest minds in the city, it can be intimidating, but the truth is, not everyone is going to be a lawyer, doctor or engineer - and that’s ok.”
Patrick enjoys being able to speak to Aquinas students and share his experience. “I owe a lot to Saint Thomas Aquinas. It opened me up and as a result helped me grow socially. I would not be in sales if I did not attend Aquinas.”
Patrick’s words of wisdom for students: “Follow your heart. It will never deceive you.”
