Congratulations Graduate

Congratulations to John Nicholas Madia, who graduated from Salesian High School on Saturday, June 4 as part of the school’s 92nd Commencement Exercise.

As you leave high school, always remember to explore new paths, take risks, learn as much as you can, and dream big. Seek opportunities which lead to the unexpected and face each day with an open heart and mind. You have so many talents, and we can’t wait to see where they will take you.

Be confident, brave, bold and brilliant so that you successfully fulfill all your dreams. You have accomplished a lot, and your future is very bright.

We are so very proud of your achievements, and we fervently wish you continued success as you move to college to pursue your professional studies and endeavors.

It will be a fabulous ride because with a family like ours and God under your wings you will do nothing but soar! God bless you and love always — Mom, Dad and your bothers Joseph and Anthony.
