The Scrivener has been De Smet Jesuit High School’s literary magazine since 1996 and has always been a way to showcase our academic standards of excellence in written and artistic form. Such excellence requires talent and hard work.
Under normal circumstances, this can be a unique challenge for students. The conditions of learning in a pandemic made this a gargantuan challenge. Their ability to persevere and accomplish the task—whether in person or remote—is inspiring. This issue is a testament to their writing abilities as well as to the skills that will make them successful no matter what the future brings them.
Special thanks to Harris King '22, who volunteered to edit and lay out this final version. This edition of The Scrivener will only exist in a digital format on the De Smet website.
