Robert Garrett ‘18 is taking the world of Finance & Marketing by storm thanks to his college education from Georgetown University and Corporate Work Study Program experience from Saint Martin. Graduating in May 2022 with a dual degree in Accounting & Marketing from Georgetown, Robert reflects on how Saint Martin remained committed to his future and led him to where he is now.
As a 14 year old student, Robert was introduced to his career path in finance thanks to his Corporate Work Study job at Lubrizol. Throughout his 4 years with the company, Robert learned clerical work and payroll information and even expanded his job responsibilities over time to include the implementation of an unconscious bias program. Now, Robert works at ScienceLogic as a Staff Accountant and is responsible for managing financial logistics issues, selling software subscriptions, and compiling usage reports. Thanks to his years of work experience in a financial setting since the young age of 14, Robert had an array of avenues to pursue after graduating college, and continues to set his sights on success.
Reflecting back on his high school experience, Robert thanks Saint Martin for more than the Corporate Work Study Program. After entering Georgetown, Robert began to realize the impact of Saint Martin’s college preparatory services, stating that, unlike classmates from other schools across the country, he never felt alone in the college process; college counselors like Ms. Logar and Dr. Tudico were always there to push and encourage him. Robert recalls, “I was the one holding myself back and Saint Martin was the one pushing me forward.”
Robert is certain that he would not be where he is today without Saint Martin. One may be surprised to hear that Robert never planned to attend Georgetown, let alone apply. In fact, his first digital application did not save which discouraged him from pursuing the enrollment process. However, with encouragement and belief from the College Counseling department, Robert is now a proud graduate of this elite institution. While the next five to ten years offer Robert an array of possibilities, the last ten years have been nothing short of transformative for Robert as Saint Martin sent him on his path to success.
