The Buffalo News recently featured English and psychology graduate Joanah Perkins ’19 in a story entitled “From St. Luke’s to law school: Joanah Perkins blazes her own path.” Both Joanah and her sister, Sydnie Perkins ’16, MS ’20, assistant director of communications, virtual engagement and data for the Office of Alumni Engagement at Canisius, attended St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy home school from kindergarten through eighth grade. Joanah attributes her success to those who have surrounded her with support, including her mentor Mike Taheri ’82, a Buffalo lawyer and mentor of Joanah’s and Amy Betros HON ’09, co-founder of St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy.
Joanah is the first St. Luke’s graduate to pursue a law degree and began school this summer at the New England School of Law in Boston.
