Saint Martin invites students into our school community who are committed to academic, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical growth. During the admissions process, Saint Martin reviews academic, disciplinary, and attendance records, as well as teacher recommendations.
While we are serious about preparing students for college and career success, we also believe that school should be fun! Caring for the whole student, we believe that involvement in extracurriculars is essential to continuing to form talented, well-rounded, and interesting individuals.
Kallie (Krawczonek) Guciardo ‘08 has made helping others her life’s work. As a Produce Distribution Coordinator for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, she has been an integral part in providing almost 57 million pounds of food to Cleveland residents in the past year.
After graduating from Saint Martin in 2008, Kallie attended Kent State University where she received her bachelor’s degree in anthropology and sociology in 2012. She continued on to receive her master’s degree in sociology from Ohio University in 2013.
With a desire to work in social services, Kallie entered the nonprofit sector and obtained her first job at The Centers. Here she worked in workforce development, coaching individuals through finding employment and navigating the professional world.
In 2018, Kallie began her work at the Greater Cleveland FoodBank where she currently focuses on the mobile pantry and school market programs. Kallie plays an integral role in ensuring everyone has access to fresh and healthy produce. Her work even impacts our Monthly Food Pantry that we hold on the third Saturday of every month right here at Saint Martin! Additionally, Kallie works on large distributions such as the weekly Muni Lot distributions that have been happening every Thursday during the pandemic. With her help, the Greater Cleveland FoodBank has been able to serve more than 375,000 people since the start of the pandemic.
When reflecting on her high school experience, Kallie recalls how impactful Saint Martin was to her success. She fondly remembers the family environment that supported her through everything, and her involvement in the theater program all four years, which included performances in A Charlie Brown Christmas, Godspell, and Into the Woods. “The best part of Saint Martin was hands down my Corporate Work Study Program experience. Working in the Cleveland Clinic Radiology department as a high school student taught me a lot about the professional world and set me up for success in my career. It was a great experience that I would not trade for anything.”
