Maroons Talk Backety-Ack: Senior Shoutouts


Written by Lexi Meadows

From Walker Phillips, To Ben Vester

“It feels like yesterday when you said yes to joining my radio show on a whim without knowing me at all. Little did I know that you’d become my best friend and a person that I can and will always count on. Though I’m more worried about me than you in regard to next year, as you go out into the real world and help the people of West Virginia, just remember that when it gets tough you never walk alone.” 


From Emilee O’Dell, To Veronica NorDyke


From every out-of-the-blue phone call to virtual cup pong victory to Post Malone jam session in your car, I have never felt more grateful to call you my best friend. You have made such a lasting impact on my life, and even more so on the world around you. I know that your goals and future accomplishments will shine brighter than the Roanoke Star itself! Congratulations on graduating babes! I’ll hold down the fort until you’re back for Alumni next year!


From Tara Hrdlick, To Claudia Jacobs 

“Hey, Claud, who would’ve thought? Not me! First things first I would like to give a brief shoutout to pi lam’s Halloween party this year. I’m a firm believer in the fact that people always come into your life for a reason and that’s why you mean so much to me. You never fail to amaze me. I’ll miss rotting in commons with you next year. Thank you for being the best & all of my to-go sandwiches from commons. Love you!! By the way, do you think you can save me a crossword?”


From Kristal, To Jayna Jules

“You did it! Boy was this a journey!! I just wanted to say thank you for being one of my best friends these past 3 years. I truly don’t know what I’m gonna do without you next year. You are my dance buddy, my backup singer (when we’re in the car), my chef (remember the 10-year plan!!), etc. I know this next chapter of life is scary but if I know you it’s just another adventure to be had. I’ll see you soon. Love you.”
