Hawks look forward to Thanksgiving break


Thanksgiving is so close we can almost taste and smell the mashed potatoes, stuffing and delicious pumpkin pie. We can’t wait to go home for break. This week, The Hawk spoke with members of the St. Joe’s community about their plans for Thanksgiving and what they are most looking forward to this break.

What are you most looking forward to this break?

Clint Springer, Ph.D.

Director of Environmental Science and Sustainability Studies

“Thanksgiving is actually my favorite holiday, because I love to cook. It’s a really great time to just gather and be thankful for what we have, and the fact that we can put food on our table this year is a big deal.” 



Donavin Gomez ’24

Major: undecided natural science

“For me, it’s a nice mental break, getting away from everyone. I’m really looking forward to being able to get up, make my own breakfast and see my siblings, my mom and dad.”



What are your plans for Thanksgiving? 

Isabella Picchini ’23

Majors: secondary education and English

Hometown: Scranton, Pennsylvania 

“I’m going home. My family has a Thanksgiving dinner at Lake Wallenpaupack [in Pennsylvania]. My family recently bought a lake house up there and my family is very big, so we’re excited to have a place where we can all meet and spend quality time together while staying safe.”


Tracy Heinze ’23

Major: finance 

Hometown: Yardley, Pennsylvania

“My Thanksgiving plans will be a little different due to COVID, but every year my family cooks the Thanksgiving meal. Usually, every year my entire family on my mom’s side gathers together on Thanksgiving. This year, we are just inviting close family members.”
