Sheila Kiernan ’22CCPS

Even before attending her first class, Sheila Kiernan ’22CCPS felt like she found a second home at St. John’s University. “One of the reasons why I loved St. John’s was because giving back to the community is so much a part of its mission. I liked the location—but I really liked the feel of the Queens, NY, campus and the University.”

“I am a Chicago kid raised as a Southern Baptist, and my life and career have been fashioned by the Catholic and Vincentian mission of a New York City school: St. John’s. It has been my home. It is my family, and I am blessed to be part of its ongoing evolution.”
