"I have seen and studied the amazing successes of this class. The creation of non-profit organizations. The service trip to Nicaragua. The quiet dedication of weekly tutoring in Port Chester. The prowess on the athletic fields. The academic awards and achievements. Individually and collectively you have gotten to this place not just because you had the abilities and the God-given talent; not just because you worked incredibly hard; and not just because you had resources and opportunities that the average high school student lacks. All of those are necessary factors but insufficient to explain your final success.
What you have had – whether a teacher, a dean, or a coach – is someone here at RCDS who believed in you, and still does. They always will."
