On October 20, 2018, Xavier proudly hosted its annual Homecoming with events all over campus. This year’s Homecoming was planned by Christina Figueroa and her Student Leadership Council (SLC). To perfect this Homecoming experience for the Xavier student body, the 2018 Homecoming team had to be diligent in order to meet the countless hours required for the success of Homecoming.

While students worked hard, none of the sacrifices students made were as big as those Profesora Figueroa made for the school. Profe gave her full attention to the SLC team during Homecoming while she sacrificed time away from her family. Thank you, Profe!

Inspired by Profe Figueroa, the SLC team spent the whole week of Homecoming making sure everything was ready for the Big Day. Profe Figueroa enforced a strict schedule to make sure the Homecoming rally, tailgate, student support of the game, and dance were ready for Xavier students to enjoy. This schedule required SLC to sacrifice their lunches, afternoons, and weekends to attend to the details of the annual event.

Rally excitement ignited by SLC emcees.

SLC spent many weeks preparing for the rally. Every minute of the rally was planned, and SLC even tried out the games. According to Kyle Cenicola, Vice-president of Gonzaga, “SLC made sure to prepare the rallies before they happened. We found activities to fill up every spare minute, and even made sure the emcees were ready with a script.”

A consequence of Profe Figueroa’s dedication to Homecoming and the preparation necessary for a successful event was that Profe was unable to attend her Master’s degree graduation. However, a surprise awaited her. At the end of halftime of the Homecoming game, Profe was given a certificate of appreciation for her dedication.

SLC is planning many more events, such as winter formal, prom, and the rallies that are hosted throughout the year. According to Pro Deputy Haley Calasan, “We make sure to plan our events far ahead of time so that when it is time, we are on top of it.” Profe Figueroa makes sure that her team is ready for projects months ahead of time to ensure that all future events are better than anyone expects. A Big Saints Thank You to Profe Figueroa for demonstrating Magis for our community.
