Ryan Hubler - '14
It's the small things that make a difference!
Ryan Hubler remembers fondly his time at St. Mary's as he works to pursue his dream job in the Automotive Industry. When asked to share how his St. Mary's school experience has made an impact in his life, Ryan had this to say:
I remember going to high school being one of the few that wrote in cursive(which the teachers appreciate). I also had knowledge of certain topics that came up that my other classmates did not have. Another big takeaway is that I am still very close to many of the people I graduated with. I don't think that this would have been the case in a larger public school.
I think back to a lot of experiences I had at St. Mary's but some of the things that I always go back to are the holiday events that we had. Things like roller skating and the Halloween parade. The special person's lunch was always a good time as well. It was the things that brought the whole school together that I seemed to enjoy and still think back to. I'm not sure what the public school experience would have been, but I feel that at St. Mary's I was able to really get to know my teachers and all the kids in the school making it feel like a big family. This is something that is valuable and can be hard to find nowadays.
I would like to add a few things that I have noticed in the years since graduating from St. Mary's. Whenever someone asks me where I've gone to school, I always start by saying St. Mary's school. Every single time, the person smiles in appreciation that there are a few people that still understand the value in attending a small catholic school.
I feel very thankful to have attended St. Mary's school and would certainly not be the person I am today had I not gone there. I have studied Mechanical Engineering most of my college career and work with cars with the rest of my spare time. It only seems fitting that I find something in the Automotive Industry.
All of us on staff at St. Mary's are very proud of Ryan and are grateful for his words of appreciation. If you know someone, who would be perfect for our alumni spotlight, please email us their name and contact information @ email@example.com.
