“we expect success”
June 9th, 2021
Greetings Parents, Students, Faculty & Staff,
On behalf of the Salesian Spectator, I would like to introduce the June Issue. I couldn’t be more proud of the effort our writers put into ensuring this issue is a success. This issue entails 24 articles from the likes of Marcho La vecchia ‘22, Armando Gimenez ‘22, Andrew Bonderev ‘22, Colin McGee‘22, Matthew McKoy ‘22, among others. These features world news updates, technology reflections, latest film suggestions, sports highlights, amongst other topics. In a very special way this issue highlights the recaps of the following special events that have taken place in our community: NHS Ceremony, Senior BBQ, Academic Awards, Senior Commencement Ceremony, Senior Breakfast, and a feature of the Commencement Ceremonies from our other Salesian Schools.
I would also like to take the time to introduce our Cover Series. As this is my last issue with the Spectator, members of the publication were adamant on ending the year off with an interview with me. This Cover series, Farewell to Our Chief: Sherquan Dailey, The Spectator’s Personal George Washington, brings light to the progress the Spectator has had during my tenure. The assignment Editor, Salvatore Bonasia ‘22, has taken the lead role in producing this piece. It is important to note that I had no prior knowledge of the questions that were asked, and I was not involved with the editing process.
My greatest honor was being able to serve the Salesian Community. I take great pride in the amazing work this publication has done in the last two years. With that being said, I would like to introduce next year’s editorial line-up: ( Editor-in-chief) Armando Gimenez ‘22, (Managing Director) Andrew Bondarev ‘22, (Assignment Editor) Salvatore Bonasia ‘22, (Editor of Student Life) Matthew McKoy ‘22, (Editor of Sports) Marco LaVecchia ‘22, (Editor of Arts, Culture, & Entertainment) Brendan Byrne ‘22, (Editor of World News and Politics) Ibrihim Ghazal ‘22.
As always, the Spectator thanks the Salesian Community, our Faculty, Staff, and students who have consistently contributed to the Spectator. Our goal as the Spectator is to ensure that our Salesian Community has the means and access to use their voices. Our prayers are with our Salesian Families at home and abroad, and we continue to keep those affected in our hearts. I hope you enjoy this issue put together by the men of the Salesian Spectator.
