Loyal Alumnus Brings Baltimore Students to Campus

Eight students from The Community School in Baltimore visited campus on April 28, thanks to the relationship that Tom Culotta ’18, the TCS head of school, has with Neumann.

The students toured the campus, visiting classrooms, athletic facilities, and residence halls before chatting over lunch with Dr. Chris Domes about higher education and their college plans.

The four-hour visit culminated in the Mullen Communication Center and an introduction to Neumann Media by Director Sean McDonald, who arranged the filming of a live news broadcast with TCS students serving as anchors, operating cameras and teleprompters, and acting as floor managers.

A graduate of Neumann University’s adult program, Culotta is the founder of The Community School, an academic and mentoring program that has worked with hundreds of students, helping them stabilize their lives and go on to college. Beginning as a community youth organization in 1977, TCS has grown under Culotta’s leadership into a full four-year, state certified high school.
