Alumni Spotlight - Sarah Mayerle '15

"Oh when the saints go marching in, When the saints go marching in..”. Today we recognize Saint Thomas Aquinas alum, Sarah Mayerle ’15.
 
Sarah is a Trade Show and Events Associate for Textron Aviation Inc. Sarah works alongside a 10-person team planning and executing 150+ events a year. These events range from large corporate trade shows to smaller customer experience events. As a guest speaker, she advised students on making the transition from high school to a college university, “It amazed me how much the students were invested in their future. They were so engaged throughout the entire presentation, and they asked very intuitive questions”.
 
For Sarah, being a guest speaker was one way she could give back to Saint Thomas Aquinas. “I think students benefit heavily from having Aquinas alumni involved in the school. In the business world, everything revolves around networking and making connections. If students are able to start making these connections with alumni while in high school, then this will set them up for success as they look for college internships and full-time positions after graduation.”
 
Sarah’s words of wisdom for students: “We plan, God laughs." Not everything always goes as planned, but I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason.”
 
“Oh Lord I want to be in that number, When the saints go marching in…”.
