Diocese of Bridgeport: SHU Journey Empowers Young Catholic Leaders
“As a CEO, your voice is amplified,” said Dan McCarthy, president and CEO of Frontier Communications, in his June 30 address on Catholic business leadership to the 34 high school students participating in Sacred Heart University’s SHU Journey. “You must use it accordingly. Be a role model with the right behaviors and a balanced approach to business.”
McCarthy’s keynote was a part of a weeklong residential leadership program for local high school students. SHU won a $500,000 grant from the Lilly Endowment to fund its “SHU Journey: To God and the World.” Dr. Michelle Loris, Associate Dean and Chair of the Department of Catholic Studies at SHU, wrote the grant and served on the team of SHU faculty and staff and Diocese of Bridgeport delegates that led the program.
