GMercyU Alum Renny Lajara, PhD Inspires Students in Philadelphia

Gwynedd Mercy University three-time alum Dr. Renny Lajara ’02, 08, 17 was recently named the new Assistant Superintendent for the Philadelphia School District. With the start to the new school, Dr. Lajara is making it his mission to inspire students.

Dr. Lajara was featured on CBS3 when he walked students through Kensington to William Hunter Elementary School. As a Philadelphia native, Dr. Lajara knows the streets the students now walk on and has witnessed violence first-hand. His hope is that this simple act of walking students will inspire them like he was inspired at their age.
