On April 14, 2022

Lorenzo admits that school was never his “strong suit”.  However, he is an excellent example of how, when you do something you love, it is easier to stay focused.  He did it, and he graduated with honors.  Lorenzo always wanted to help people, so his interest in Patient Care was a genuine one.  He also credits his amazing teacher, Mari Ann Szczublewski with much of his success - claiming she was “the best one he ever had”.
