Alumni Spotlight: Kate Lagos '10

Kate Lagos ’10 graduated from Johnson and Wales University in 2014 with her bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising and Retail Marketing. 

Following graduation, Kate began working as the Visual Merchandising Coordinator at LAGOS, the family-owned jewelry company her father founded 41 years ago. Recently, Kate was promoted to Brand Stylist and Event Coordinator. Kate says, “I’ve learned that self-awareness builds strength, courage, and confidence and that those will take you further than just being a good test taker. Having a huge smile on your face with everything you do helps you be more positive and can influence those around you! Woodlynde’s students, teachers, and class structure created a community that made me feel safe and allowed me to simply be myself.”
