Patrick Nettina

It is an unbelievable honor to share this nomination with my fellow classmates: Michael, Thomas, Shane, Casey, and Evan. I am humbled to be nominated by your side. Congratulations.

To the faculty and staff – “Pursue excellence, nothing else is worth your time.” We must have walked by this phrase hundreds of times since we first stepped foot through those Blue Doors, yet this could not be possible without you. You have not only pushed me academically, but you have pushed me to become a better man. Thank you for everything you do.

To the Class of 2023 – From school trips to retreats, from championships to heartbreaks, and from the early morning practices to the late nights studying, it has been a privilege growing up with you. I have enjoyed every minute sharing these four years with you, and you have undoubtedly shaped me into who I am today. I am proud to call you my brothers.

To Canisius High School -– You have given me so many opportunities fostering the relationships with myself, others, and God. The Immersion Trip, Kairos, and the Wilderness Retreat have been an honor. Thank you.

To the underclassmen – There are so many experiences waiting for you, and there is so little time. Do not waste it.
