Amos Alonzo Stagg High School. If I was to describe Stagg through my own lens and in my own words I would have to say that it really, truly, in all honesty, is ineffable. It is a place like no other. It is a place that charishes diversity and all the treasures that the multiculturalism of our school brings to the table. It is a place that gives you a chance, no matter who you are, what you do, or how you want to do it. It is a place where you can find people to support you. A place, where the community is one that thrives off the willingness of its members. A community that you won't find anywhere else in the world.
Yesterday night, we had our first football game of the year. To most of the students' surprise, Stagg won. A victory that I feel is a testimony to the fact that this year the student body is going to make Stagg a place where everyone wants to be. A place, that people look up to. We already know that it's an amazing place to be. But now, we need to show the world what we can do. We need to show how we are changing the future while living in a small suburb outside of Chicago. Because we are changing the future - every time we walk into that building, or to that event, or the play - we forge a community of people that are ready to take on any issue that comes our way because we chose to support one another.
Stay strong Chargers. We're going to have one of the best years ever.
