Senior goodbye: Morgan Shaw

Morgan Shaw

Dear Archbishop John Carroll children,

We should all know that this school has been something else over the years of this. I don’t know because I haven’t been here for the full 4 years. In a normal high school, you make your friends in 9th grade when you don’t know the children and everyone is coming in from different schools and stuff like that. I basically have no memories of this school because I haven’t been here, so, yeah. When I first came here, it was a hybrid and the only person I knew was Malia Glover because she was my neighbor and, well, I wanted to go to O’Hara. But then again, I couldn’t be enrolled until the spring semester and I refused to go to Bonner-Prendie because my old school plays them, like, in every sport.

Well, I’m back because I wanted to take a nap but couldn’t, so back to being on writer’s block. Well, after talking to the wonderful and amazing English teacher, Ms. Diane Gimpel, instead of my experience, I write of all the teachers that had to deal with me for the past 2 years. First off, I would like to thank Mr. Malloy for letting me bother him with computer stuff and just hanging out with him in his office just to escape study hall and the guidance office because I can’t sit in one spot unless I get to sleep. Next is Father Cavara because, yeah. Father and I weren’t close in my first year here, but when I came to Kairos, then the trouble started to come along. He was the first person that I actually opened up to so that was great. Mr. Quintois is a special character, but he also helped me with Kairos. I got to the school too early and he let me stay in his office until it was time to actually meet up. Now, he’s like a weird stepfather or uncle who looks out for me. I’m so lucky to have met both of them or else I would have been lost. There are other teachers but I am running out of time and these nails are going to kill me. I would like to say thank you to all the teachers that had to deal with me and I’m so grateful to be here.

I feel like I should say something about the people that would be kind enough to deal with me through mostly senior year. My best friends are Sukai Teng, Deaje Pullins, Leah Burch, Eddie Duldberg, Phoebe Stuski-Vandermeer, Elle Herberger, and the other people that had to keep up with my nonsense and helped me well basically survive high school and I can’t wait to hang out with them after I graduate and even more.

Thank you all for the amazing school year,

Morgan Shaw
