Holy cross is a community of scholars. Close-knit connections are especially reflected in Crusaders who come to the Hill as stellar students and return as distinguished faculty. Holy Cross faculty alumni include Melissa Boyle ’00 (economics), Thomas Cecil ’68 (mathematics and computer science), Daniel DiCenso ’98 (music), Joshua Farrell ’94 (chemistry), Ericka Fisher ’96 (education), Lisa Fluet ’96 (English), Timothy Joseph ’98 (classics), Steven Levandosky ’92 (mathematics and computer science), Edward O’Donnell ’86 (history) and Mary Roche ’90 (religious studies).
That list also includes André Isaacs ’05. Arriving from Jamaica, he quickly found a home-and a passion-in a Holy Cross chemistry lab. He returned to the College last year to launch his own lab.
Isaacs specializes in synthetic organic chemistry and research related to the treatment of cancer, among other goals. He feels a special affinity for his Holy Cross students, who are not far behind him in their academic trajectory.
