Educational Experience
5th year

My name is Andrew Brueggen and I grew up in Cashton, WI and then moved to Holmen my senior year of high school in 2006.  I bounced around colleges trying to find my vocation in life, all the while competing in Track & Field throwing the Hammer and picking up a couple of All American trophies in the mix.  I graduated from Saint Mary's University in May of 2011 with a degree in Theology/Youth Ministry.  I have also been the Youth Minister at St. Patrick's in Onalaska since 2009 where my passion to inspire the youth about their faith has been growing.  I look forward to not only educating students in their faith but inviting them to dive deeper into the mystery of the Catholic Church.
