Mr. Michael Awungnkeng

In His Own Words:  A year ago, I reached out to collaborate with Dr. Gildersleeve on developing a bioethics program in my former school, and this gave me a sense of what the Dominican sisters have done in developing a culture on the respect of human dignity, one I would like to be part of. Since being at John Paul the Great, I have encountered students and staff who have a sense of the holy and have a deep appreciation of the Church, even if they are not Catholic. I am looking forward to sharing my faith, engaging the minds of our students in bioethical discussions and journeying with each other on this faith journey.
