Senior Story 2022: Teaching Toward Truth
Sep 5, 2022

Name: Faith Starnes

Hometown: Helotes, TX

Major: Theology

Notable UD Memories/Achievements: Receiving the Helen Corbitt Award; passing senior comps with distinction; planning and executing, as co-chair, a record-breaking Charity Week during COVID.

Future Plans: Serving as a Seton Teaching Fellow in the Bronx, New York, bringing the Catholic faith to children and families in underserved communities.

Entering into UD, Faith Starnes, BA ’22, planned to be a biology major, on a pre-physical therapy track. As a sophomore, she added a theology concentration, which opened her eyes to the beauty 
of theology and made her realize her deep love for the discipline. After Rome, she changed her major to theology, acknowledging an attraction and excitement for those classes that she did not have in the same way for biology. One of her favorite classes, however, was bioethics with Adjunct Instructor William Stigall, M.D., MA ’09. “This class opened my eyes to the integration of mind and body in a new way,” she said. “It is arguably one of the most important classes at UD—offering answers to ethical issues the medical field faces every day.”
