"I had the great honor and privilege to work with Luke when he was a student at Wheeling Jesuit University. He started working in the Student Life office as a freshmen and continued throughout his tenure at Wheeling Jesuit. Luke was one of those student leaders who you could always count on to get the job done. However, what set him apart from many others is the passion and dedication he has to not only get it done, but to assess and improve it as well. I can not think of a time when Luke was tasked with accomplishing something that he did not go above and beyond what was expected. Additionally, Luke has a passion for success. Not only his own success but the success of the organization. He made an impact on Student Life at Wheeling Jesuit that students will continue to enjoy for years to come. Luke is a true leader and I am sure that he will continue to be successful in the future. "
"Luke is a wonderful leader on campus. He knows how to get things done and is an excellent representative for others. I recommend Luke for future internship or job opportunities without hesitation."
