Savio Alumni Servant Leader Chooses to Serve Others Through Her Passion
While Gabby Fuentes was in high school at St. Dominic Savio, she spent some time working with a nonprofit organization that peaked her interest to pursue a career in social work. During her orientation weekend three years ago at The Catholic University of America, Fuentes had an opportunity to meet William Rainford, the dean of the National Catholic School of Social Service (NCSSS). When she was a first-year student in the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program, Fuentes was quickly introduced to the Assistant Professor Eileen Dombo, who was chair of the BSW program at the time.
Fuentes is currently a junior in the program, and has exceeded Professor Dombo’s expectations. Fuentes is now serving others through research and responsibility.
“It’s not enough to think, ‘how can I advance?’ You have to also ask yourself, ‘how can I help those around me to advance.’”
