A Message to the Class of 2022 from Principal Dhurata Rexha

Dear Class of 2022,

It is my pleasure and privilege to extend congratulations and best wishes to the class of 2022 on behalf of the entire organization.

I write this letter of encouragement with thoughts of all the hopes and dreams you will have in the future. Right now, all you can think of is who you will become outside of Lavelle High School, but I want to tell you that the phase of life you are now entering will be full of experiences beyond what you can currently imagine. I encourage you to prepare for those future hopes, dreams, and experiences, to leverage your youth and opportunities, to recreate yourself in light of who you want to be. Your future does not occur by chance. It occurs by preparation. Day by day you will grow in mind and heart. Don’t wait for your future to happen, create the future you want to live. With you, I leave my sincere wish for a bright and happy future.

So, my dear students, as you embark on a new chapter of your life, always remember that learning does not stop inside the classroom. I would like to impart some food for thought by Harriet Tubman. “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” Be a dreamer and change the world! Please do not forget that you will always be a part of the Lavelle Prep family! While our time together is at an end, we will always be here to support you in any way that we can.

It is with a tremendous amount of pride and pleasure that I wish each member of the Class of 2022 congratulations and best of luck!
