Notes for Connor

You have achieved it. You are an icon. Congrats on graduating, Connor!

Yo Connor,
You stepped up big time at the EST – through the pandemic and as a transfer student. And I was proud to see your reporting and writing abilities grow immensely during your time with us. Godspeed on your next steps. Stay in touch. We are proud of you.
Best Wishes,
Prof Glader

Connor thanks for being such a good friend to me and to so many other people at this school. It’s so clear that God has given you a heart for others. You bring joy to those around you and I’ve been blessed to know you these past couple years.

Congratulations, Connor! I’m so thankful to have had you as my friend this year, and I will never forget our time together at the journalism convention. I’ll miss you so much but I know that you’ll achieve whatever you set your mind to. Good luck in Florida!

Connor, thank you for always making me smile even when I am the grumpiest person in the world. You are so funny and so smart and I think the world of you!

I can’t wait to see all of the amazing things you do back in Daytona. You better watch out or I may visit and stay at one of the millions of condos.

Sending you so much love!


You have been an incredible roommate and your sense of humor and sense of style are both on point! I hope I get the chance to see you in Florida and try Aunt Catfish’s!

Best wishes,


Ah Connor, HIIII! Congratulations, I am so excited for you and all of the things that you will do. I am so glad to have made a friend in you this year. Seeing you grow mentally and spiritually has been such a blessing! No matter what, keep going (and never lose your fashion sense 😋)! Good luck finishing up your REA license! Looking forward to catching up on the beach someday.

P.s. God has great plans for you. Just trust Him!

The King’s College is losing its icon. On any other day I would be protesting outside the school for the cancelation of graduation. But alas, many of you have bigger fish to fry. Don’t forget about all of us here at Kong’s, and if you see me, give me a wave—even if it’s not me.

Congratulations Connor Dean! I will miss seeing you around campus, but I hope you can properly revel in your accomplishments.

Thank you for being someone I can obsess about Drew Barrymore with. I am going to miss fist bumps from you before quizzes/exams. Wishing you all the best in the after-grad season. Congratulations!!!

Congratulations, I am so happy for you.

May the LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

Our House of Lewis film star!!! Congrats Connor. I loved being your helmsman all those years ago, and I’m elated to be graduating with you now. Best of luck in whatever awaits you.

The day you told me you WERE going to The Kings College I was never so shocked of such a big decision and you just knew what and how you wanted to experience your college years. So I went with it and have never seen you grow so much in 3 years. Perseverance you do have and you should be so proud of yourself and can’t wait to see what God has in store next for you! TRUST IN HIS TRUTH!! Love, and always prayers, Your Nana. ❤️
