Lauren May (MED ’09, Early Childhood Ed.) is a kindergarten teacher at St. Pius Catholic school (Jacksonville). For the past few years, May has found creative ways to promote college to her young class. “College is the goal for graduates from St. Pius,” states May. “We start early with high expectations.”
May, who is VP of Athletics for the Gator Club of Jacksonville and has been awarded Young Alumni Coordinator of the Year by the UF Alumni Association, remains involved with her Alma mater and finds joy in promoting the university with her class each year. “It is fun to introduce them to the University of Florida in Kindergarten. I am able to share my love of the Gators with my students and their families.”
This year May’s class made t-shirts that read, “Future Gator, Class of 2028”.
