Planting Seeds: Episode 8 Part 1 Featuring St. Benedict’s Alumni Catherine Shamanski, Matt Fierro, and Ryan Fierro

Join us in celebrating the final episode of the Planting Seeds Podcast, a heartfelt 8-part limited series by St. B's! In this special two-part finale, our Head of School and host, Father Brian Sullivan, sits down with three extraordinary alumni who are the epitome of St. Benedict's values in action.

Meet Catherine Shamanski (Georgia Tech), Matt Fierro (Auburn University), and Ryan Fierro (Emory-Riddle Aeronautical University). Not only have they embraced our school's essence, but they've carried these principles into their college journeys. As we mark the 15th anniversary of St. Benedict's next year, what better way to celebrate than by engaging with these outstanding alumni who continue to make us proud? In this captivating episode, we'll dive into their unique journeys, reflections on their time at St. Benedict's, and how they've contributed to our community even after graduation.
