Falcon Focus

St. John Fisher Alumni 

Katie Canavan, '15 (Marist '19)

Dear SJF Families,

My favorite memory from Fisher was winning the Gold Ball for basketball. Our team had said from the first day of practice in sixth grade that winning that championship was our ultimate end goal. I will never forget the feeling when the buzzer went off in that game and we had finally won, but more so I will always remember the fun we had as a team off of the court. From cooking dinner together at the Ronald McDonald House to getting celebratory ice cream after big wins, I will never forget that team or the memories we made. Each teacher I had at Fisher prepared me to be successful once I got to high school. From Mrs. Caffrey in kindergarten all the way to Mrs. G in eighth grade, these role models supported and encouraged me to be the best student and person I could be. I immediately felt confident that I was able to tackle anything that was thrown my way at Marist which led me to the successes I’ve gained. My biggest piece of advice for current falcons is to branch out and get as involved as you can in high school. It is the best way to meet new people and find something you are really passionate about.
