Thomas Arning is from Garden City, NY and has currently lived in Manhattan since 2014. He graduated from Loyola University MD in 2013 with a BA in Political Science, and worked at Deloitte & Touche Consulting for three years before attending Fordham Law school. Tom is in his third and final year of law school after his summer internship with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office Crime Strategies Unit. He is also pursuing a dual degree with a simultaneous Masters in Public Administration from Rutgers University -Newark.
Tom got involved in St. Aloysius through a mutual friend, Stephen Fleischer. Stephen, the chairman of the Associate Board, knew Tom from their shared time at Loyola University and met through their work together at Loyola's Campus Ministry. Campus Ministry was one of the catalysts to connect Tom more seriously to service, justice, and of course, Loyola's Jesuit Community. His support and dedication to St. Al's has proven invaluable with his passion for the betterment of the students in Kibera and his strong connections in New York via his law school and his former employer.
