Karina has been an integral part of the John Carroll community for five years. She served as the Parents’ Society secretary for three years before becoming president and joining the School Advisory Council in 2018.
Karina is much more than simply a parent volunteer. She is always one phone call away when help is needed. Whether it is speaking to prospective families about attending John Carroll, assisting with a host of events, or developing new ways for John Carroll to shine, Karina is alwayspresent. She even stayed as Parents’ Society president during her gap year between Samantha graduating and Jesse attending John Carroll!
Karina genuinely adores John Carroll High School and the entire Catholic community, and we are so grateful for all that she does for our school!
