Alumni Spotlight

Andrew Lynch, class of 2009

The Andrew Lynch family

Andrew Lynch, Aquinas Academy class of 2009, graduated from the University of Notre Dame with an undergraduate degree in philosophy and classics and went on to receive his Masters of Science in Business from Notre Dame. Since then, he has worked in consulting and now in wealth management for RSM, one of the largest accounting firms in the country.

During his time at RSM, he was chosen to lead the firm’s national stewardship program, Birdies Fore Love, which serves as the charitable giving platform for the RSM Classic, a PGA tour event held in Sea Island, Georgia. Birdies Fore Love raises money in RSM offices across the USA and Canada for charities that support children and their families in the areas of hunger, housing, health, and education. This past year, under Andrew’s leadership, the Birdies Fore Love program raised over 4.8 million dollars.

Andrew lives in Granger, Indiana. He is married to Erin Lynch with three daughters, Zelie, Avila and Lily

Elena Liguori, class of 2016

Aquinas Academy alumna Elena Liguori

Elena Liguori, Aquinas Academy class of 2016, is serving as a missionary with FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, for the next few years. FOCUS missionaries serve on college campuses to bring Christ to students and “make disciples of all nations” especially in their formative college years through bible studies, mentorship, retreats, conferences, the sacraments, sports, social events, and intentional friendship.

Elena credits her 14 years at Aquinas and the formation and frequent access to the sacraments she received here as well as her time in the Newman Center at the Pittsburgh Oratory as huge positive forces in her pursuit of her faith today. Elena was blessed to have served at her alma mater and graduate university, Pitt, in the fall of 2021 while she completed her Master’s Degree in Medical Product Engineering. She was then placed full-time at the USMA West Point in spring 2022.

Elena was interviewed on Relevant Radio’s Morning Air® radio program. The program aired on May 17, 2022 and is titled, “Elena Ligouri, Adventure of Being a FOCUS Missionary ⁄ Bishop Brendan Cahill, Vocations to the Consecrated Life.” Listen on Relevant Radio.
