Mary Dickens- I will miss you so much next year! I am not sure what to do without you. Thank you for giving me the best advice and always being there for me. It has been so much fun watching you grow up these four years! You have grown to be such an amazing young lady with determination, positivity, intelligence, and beauty. I hope being an only child next year isn’t as bad as it seems for you. Love you always, Caroline Calihan. Piper Kilb- Thank you for being such an amazing friend over the past four years. I will miss you so much and wish you all the best next year. You have been such an amazing friend by always being there for me when I felt down or was happy. Keep your positive energy up and stay you! Love you always, Caroline Calihan

Ms. Sanford- We will miss you so much!! You’ve been like our community big sister this year! Your strength, spiritually and emotionally, has been so inspiring to this class. I’ve said it before but the world really does need more people like you! We love you! Much love, Alex Williams My Pierian Spring Gang- You all are so talented! Seriously! I couldn’t be more proud of Xavier’s community of artists and writers. You are all so resilient and strong in this weird time in our lives. Please never stop creating. Remember that your stories are important and are worth being heard. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with in the coming years!! Peace and Love, Alex Williams

These past four years at Xavier have been incredibly memorable! I have been so blessed to be taught by such amazing teachers, seeing all the friendly faces when I walk past the circle in the mornings, talking with everyone at the Xavier café, enjoying the beautiful campus, and most of all, making the loveliest of friends. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for all of them and I am beyond proud of them for getting to the finish line only to start a new chapter of their lives. I can definitely say that the first time I walked on campus will be incomparable to the last day I set foot here. I love you all so much, Michelle Calderon <3

And to the next group of CSHS officers, I can’t wait to see where you take the society in the coming years as it grows and develops. Best of luck to you all in the future! Sincerely, Natalie Para

My favorite part about senior year was making so many more close friendships. With covid, we had to have 2 separate lunches, and for me, that was a blessing in disguise. Normally, I would just sit with my friend group at lunch, but now we sit with whoever we see in A or B lunch. I love this because I have gotten so much closer with the seniors over lunch and everyday a new group of people sit with us. I look forward to lunches whenever I go to school because I love getting closer with everyone. – Taryn Maher 

People always say that the people you surround yourself with are a direct correlation of who you are as a person. To my wonderful best friends (you know who you are), thank you for shaping me into the person I am today. You inspire me to be a better person each and everyday. I wholeheartedly believe that I have a small piece of each of you in my heart that I will take into my next chapter. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. I love you forever and ever. Love always, Courtney Cole <3

For my best friends throughout our amazing years here- Nia, Maria, Alyssa, and Nat. I love you all so much! You have made my high school experience the most unpredictable, funny years of my life. I’m sad we didn’t get to hang in Vestar Courtyard as much this year, but I’m so thankful for the memories we got to make this year and during the past three years. P.S. Make room for me in your dorms… I’m coming to visit! Love you, Caylyn Chipman

I just wanna say I’m proud of myself and all of my peers who have worked so incredibly hard, with frequent Dutch runs, weekly all-nighters, and endless assignments, to pursue our goals in life, even if some of us still don’t know what those goals are yet. Wow, that was a long sentence. I’m so grateful for the skills I have learned, the people I have met, and the memories I’ve made. It wasn’t always perfect, but I wouldn’t have traded it for anything. – Ariana Herrera Ady

Mrs. Gannon, I would have not survived high school without you. You were not my guidance counselor, you were my guardian angel. You need a relaxing vacation after the countless emails and meetings we shared. I am going to miss stopping by and stealing candy. Thank you so much for guiding me these past for years! My graduation is dedicated to you. 🙂 Love, Reagan Van Norman

America, your sweet soul came into my life right when I needed it most, thank you. Lauren, I have only truly known you this year, but you feel like the sister I never had, but always dreamed of having, thank you for being a light in my life. To my Dr. Queen, I love you so so much and I will miss saying hi to you in the hallways next year, I loved being your TA! To Ms. Andersen, even though physics was not my forte at all, you were one of the best teachers I have ever had, because you taught me that our failures do not define us, (that’s good because physics was not it). To Mrs. Hubbard, I don’t know how but each book we read this year impacted my life in a way I didn’t know I needed but am MOST definitely thankful for. “I care for myself” will follow me into college and all that I do, thank you my iconic queen! To Bethany, Jordan, Katie, and Sophia, thank you for being my best comrades throughout these four years, I couldn’t have done it without you! To Brooke, words can’t even begin to tell you how much our friendship has meant to me. I couldn’t have chosen a better ride or die, you are truly one of a kind. Lastly, thank you Xavier for being my home over these past four years, you have nurtured some of the best relationships of my life and I thank you tremendously for the love and support I have felt during my four years here! I will miss Xavier with every ounce of my being, but I leave knowing that this is not good bye, just see you soon.
