Alum attributes success to time at OCU

Latricia (Sullivan) Johnston, ’08, is a third generation Ohio Christian University alum who was recently was appointed Centennial Project Director for Fairfield Medical Center (FMC), where she will manage and coordinate a year-long celebration in honor of 100 years of existence of FMC. 

Johnston has dedicated her professional life in the service of others with more than 23 years of non-profit, corporate, and higher education communications including grant writing, personal and legacy gift planning, fundraising events, physician and employee fundraising, marketing, event planning and office management.  

She attributes many of her successes to the education received at Ohio Christian University where she received her Bachelor of Arts from OCU majoring in Business Administration in 2008, graduating cum laude and a member of Delta Epsilon Chi and Pinnacle Honor Society. 

Johnston’s father, the retired minister Rev. Lawrence Sullivan completed biblical courses, and more recently her son Ridge Johnston graduated from OCU in pastoral counseling.  

“If I could use one word to describe my journey as a student at OCU, it would be ‘persistence’.  Keep at it.  Don’t give up. Even if you’re working a full time job, and serving in the role of spouse and parent all at the same time.  It pays off,” said Johnston.
