I wanted to check in with you and let me know how things are going in my life currently. I went to SHC after graduating in 2019 up until this last September. I felt a vocational calling to join the seminary and as a result, I was sent to the Redemptorist Mater Seminary in Newark, New Jersey in the formation to become a priest. At SHC, all the literature and vocabulary classes were very smooth, because of what you taught us in ELA-C. This even translated here to the seminary where I just read "The Raven" again after 4 years and immediately thought of your class and what you taught me about it, and surprisingly, I was able to retain some of what you taught me. So even to this day, thank you for everything you did for us as a class and me as a student. Feel free to reach out with anything you want to say or have questions about. Thanks and take care, Samuel May 19'
