Welcome to the final edition of the Class/Alumni of the week article. This week, we decided to mix it up, and combine the two. We have switched back and forth between the Class of the Week,and the Alumni of the Week. This week’s article will be the Alumni’s Class of the Week.

Welcome to the final edition of the Class/Alumni of the week article. This week, we decided to mix it up, and combine the two. We have switched back and forth between the Class of the Week,and the Alumni of the Week. This week’s article will be the Alumni’s Class of the Week.

We have contacted Dominican legend Michael Vecitis, who graduated this past spring. Michael currently attends St.Thomas University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Michael was very involved at Dominican ever since he was a freshman. He was very involved in most of the retreats, service opportunities, and especially athletics. Michael played volleyball and baseball throughout his four years, and was a phenomenal leader in both of those sports. In addition, Michael also played CYM Basketball for the St. Eugene’s team. Outside of class, he enjoyed hanging out with friends,and playing sports.Although Michael was an incredible athlete and very involved in all sorts of extra-curricular activities, he will always put school first and was a fantastic student. We asked Michael to talk about his favorite class of all-time at Dominican. He was happy to help, and said that his AP Chemistry class with Mrs. Senn was his favorite. Michael stated, “Although I was not the best at chemistry, Mrs. Senn always helped me through whatever I was struggling with and made sure I understood all the material.” He talked about how he loved all of his classmates in this class because they were able to have fun by getting off track, but also knew when it was time to get back on track and concentrate. “Overall, the entire class was a great experience,” said Michael.

This will be the last alumni/class of the week article of 2018. Thank you to Michael and all of the alumni and teachers who were willing to answer our questions for the article.
