Lauren Hartlage

Saint James Catholic School alumna Lauren Hartlage credits her time at the school for her success in high school and college.

 “Through my education at SJS, I learned that to be successful you have to work hard and make no excuses,” she said. “My teachers always expected the best out of me and pushed me to reach my full potential. They also taught me to respect others, which has proven to be very important in my success in high school and college.” 

Born and raised in Elizabethtown, Hartlage attended SJS from 2001-2012. A finance student at the University of Louisville, she continues to make a name for herself as a member of the UofL golf team. At the end of 2018 she was ranked 59th in the world and 22nd among American golfers. Because of her talent as a golfer, she recently was given an invitation to play at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship next month

“My Catholic education has had the biggest impact on who I have become today,” Hartlage said. “My time at SJS was some of the best years of my life. To me, SJS is family and somewhere I will always be able to come back and call home.”
