ValedictorianAlysse Moskal
Alysse will be attending Boston College in the fall. She is looking forward to going to BC sports games and “having some independence.” She describes her Feehan experience as great, even though she came in not knowing people at a smaller catholic school, she says she enjoyed the “service aspect.” She enjoyed all of her classes but she specifically liked Mrs.Tyler’s English class, AP Physics with Mr.Smith, and Biology with Mrs.Lavertu. Lastly, Alysse’s advice to underclassmen is to “challenge yourself, but don’t go too hard on yourself” as she explains that there’s no need to stress too much over high school. Congratulations Alysse!

Dylan’s Feehan experience was a blast, he said that it was overall a “really positive”  experience.

His advice for underclassmen at Feehan would be to “pay attention in class,” as he says that school is a lot easier if you pay attention.

Lastly, Connor is most looking forward to “different people, different classes, and sports.” Congrats Connor!

Bridget has two pieces of advice. The first being to experiment, she wants underclassmen to try new things and not be afraid to “venture outside of Feehan.” The second piece of advice is to “not overfill your plate,” Bridget explains that instead of crowding your resume, “find something that you’re passionate about.” Congrats Bridget!
