Russell Excited For Opportunity As St. Rita A.D.

Just seven years removed from graduating from St. Rita, Roshawn Russell '08 returned to his alma mater in 2015 as the school’s assistant admissions director.

He admits it was a little weird, but pretty cool, to see the school from the faculty’s perspective.

Now, Russell is seeing St. Rita from another point of view.

A 2008 graduate, Russell is in his first year as St. Rita athletic director.

“It’s been cool being on the other side of the fence. It’s weird at the same time being back at my high school,” Russell said with a laugh. “I definitely feel prepared with the years I spent in college. It prepared me for this moment. I’m really humbled. This is that dream job I never saw coming.”
