Salutatorian Speech by Valentina Castello
Good evening Father Manny, Sr. Rosalie, teachers, staff, families and my fellow students of the class of 2020. Congratulations to you all! I feel so blessed by God to receive this award. You all have no idea what this means to me. This is huge for me. I want to begin by sharing with you something I reflected on the other day. Most of you are aware of the phrase "You did it! You graduated!" Then, I thought to myself that's not all true. You did not do it; we did it! If you think about it, we would have never gotten to this point if it were not for our teachers, parents, and most importantly God.
I especially want to Thank St. Theresa and the parents on behalf of the Class of 2020 for helping us build this community of trust. Parents, you have trusted this school with the education of your children, not only academically but spiritually as well.
One of the things I am most proud of in our school is the strong relationships between the faculty and the students as well as within the parents themselves.Click here to read more
Valedictorian Speech by Priscilla Paul
Good evening Father Manny, Sr. Rosalie, teachers, staff, families and my fellow classmates. As I begin, I desire to express my gratitude for allowing me to address you this evening. Though I am filled with unwanted trepidation, I am also confident standing before you. Presented with this award, I am here to deliver a message. I am here to say goodbye.
Throughout the ten years I have spent at St. Theresa, I have not only expanded my knowledge, yet challenged myself extremely. We may be able to all agree St. Theresa bombarded us with countless amounts of homework. But you know what they say, "At least we are prepared for high school!" However, St. Theresa and my parents did teach me a valuable lesson. I must remain determined.
There have been times when I imagine myself without a sense of guidance from this St. Theresa Family. Luckily, the students here are blessed and were able to receive numerous opportunities for guidance from our local teachers and counselors. Speaking to you all, I desire to offer advice.Click here to read more
