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 22 articles from the likes of John Agapito ‘21, Salvatore Bonosia ‘22, Armando Gimenez ‘22, Christopher Hart ‘21, Mr. Janvier, Christopher Moronta ‘22, Mr. Servello ‘80, Matthew Ventura ‘22 among others. These features highlight quarantine recipes, graduating class reflections, senior portraits, senior commencement images, a message from the Guidance Department, workout routines, streaming suggestions, and art exhibitions amongst other topics.
I would also like to take the time to introduce our Cover Series. This series focuses on our current political climate, delivering articles in regards to the Black Lives Matter Movement. It provides suggestions to essential films, books, and reflections that give a deeper insight into the racial injustices in America. Lastly, our cover article written by Matthew Mckoy ‘22 and Daniel Singh ‘22, examines this current issue. These fine gentlemen argued and expounded upon the unpopular opinion: “Racism Isn’t Getting Worse, It Is Getting Filmed”. In addition, it includes insights from a number of Faculty & Staff members, including Mr. Chisolm.
The Spectator thanks the Salesian Community, our Faculty, Staff, and students who have contributed effortlessly towards the last several issues of the newspaper. Our goal as the Spectator is to ensure that our Salesian Community has the means and access to use their voices. On behalf of the Spectator I would like to congratulate the class of 2020! I wish you all the best in your future endeavours. 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.
