“Every few years, there is a class of students that just resonates with you as a teacher or administrator," he said. "The Marquette Catholic High School Class of 2023 was one of those classes. They have been exceptional in every way, and I am going to miss them dearly. It is bittersweet at the end of each school year as a teacher and administrator. It’s such a great feeling to know that you are sending students out into the world, ready for the next big challenge in life, but it also is difficult to know that you’re not going to get to spend the same amount of time with them anymore and that you’re not there to help them when they need it.

"You hope the best for them but also have to know that you have prepared them to go out and excel. I expect nothing but the best from our graduating class and I believe that they will go out into the world and make a difference. My wish for this class, as they take their next step in life, is that they continue to persevere in all challenges and always strive to be the best versions of themselves.
