Where do I start? How about when I met you when you were still in high school and not sure if you would attend King’s? I’m so glad you did. But now I don’t know what I’m going to do without a Bustard Chick around! Stay in touch!

Notes for Margaret

Maggie- congrats on graduation! No move-in day will ever be the same without the Bustard’s! Thank you! Wish you the best in all you do post-grad!

From your presidency and my first year as an advisor, to our weekly meetings walking through Battery Park, I’m thankful for your friendship. Thank you for trusting me with your story, thoughts, highs, and lows these two years. Wishing so many great things for you as you graduate!


I cannot express how grateful I am for your thoughtful, bold, and patient leadership. You lead the House of Truth in such a Christ-like manner and I am so deeply impressed with what a woman of faith you are. Can’t wait to see where the Lord leads you next.

I enjoyed being on the Council with you last year and getting to witness your infectious hilarity. Your House was lucky to have someone as dedicated to them as you are.

Congrats, Maggie! On my first weekend in NYC, you took me to church and bought me my first avocado toast 🙂 What a busy 3 years it’s been since then, full of growing, changing, challenging, and laughing. You have been such a blessing to me in so many ways. Your grace, humor, and hugs have guided me through both the tough and fun times. Thank you for being my friend, House president, and Truthie sister. I love you!

Maggie, congrats on this big moment! You’re one of the most amazing people I’ve met. I remember when I first met you and the grace and love that you exude. It’s in every moment and I hope everyone you meet will be able to experience your wonderful spirit. Thank you so much for making me feel apart of the house and part of your story. I love you so much!!!


Congratulations! It was truly a privilege to serve with you on the Council; I admire the way you fiercely love those whom you serve. I wish you all the best in your next chapter!

I’m so glad for this little yearbook that reminds me to tell you what I’ve always thought: your character really showed through when it came to the House of Truth. Thank you for your commitment to making it a better place–and especially this year. After your leadership role ended, you were still a leader for us. I appreciated that. (:

My sweet sweet Maggie, you are a treasure. To know you is to love you. I’m so proud of you (always). I can’t wait to see all of the incredible things you do in this next season of your life. You never cease to amaze us all. I love you forever, friend!


From my beautifully graceful president to my truly loving and powerful friend, I love you Mags! I’m so blessed to have known you, serve with you, and grow closer together. Here’s to our 3-hour meetings and all the laughter we’ve shared! Proud of you!

Maggie, Congratulations! All your hard work is paying off. I am so thankful our little QE1/Truthies exec team sisterhood last year. Can’t wait to see how you’ll thrive!

Congratulations, Maggie! You are wonderful in so many ways and watching you give all that you are to King’s during our time here was inspiring. Grateful for knowing you. I can’t wait to see where you are off to next–they will be so lucky to have you. Cheers to you and all the time we spent in this library. XOXO, Brittany

SHE. IS. DONE. and I’m beyond proud. I’m on FT with you right now and dang girl, you know I’ll love you till the end. So thankful we are in the same stage of life with graduating college and we can continue living our lives together. always and forever with you! <3

CONGRATS One of my closest friends, Maggie, I’m so proud of you, you’re so endearing and kind and I love hearing about your life and what you will do next. Keep faith in God because I know post-graduation is a little scary (at least it was for me). Please keep me posted on everything, love you!!

Maggie!! We did it!

I am truly honored to have spent my time at Kings with you. You are a light, a joy, and got me through terrible days just by being your-hilarious-self. I’m so excited to see where you will go, I know you will go on to do incredible things! Here’s to lots more Starbucks as real adult New Yorkers! <3

Maggie Bustard! You’re a rockstar and I admire you! Love you lots & miss you!

MAGGIE. Here we are…graduating. How is this happening. It feels like just yesterday I was falling asleep in your little chair in 2C with a full, piping hot cup of coffee precariously perched on my knee. Thanks for seeing the good in me and encouraging me when I am at my most chaotic 🙂 I have loved seeing you grow into the amazing friend and leader that you are today. You haven’t taken your time at King’s for granted, and you have chosen to invest well in the community around you. So many have been impacted by you! I’m looking forward to graduating with you on Saturday, love you Maggie <3

congratulations Maggie! there is so much heart and care behind all you do. I’ve enjoyed all the time we spent together and I had the best time in Israel with you. I only wish I’d gotten to know you sooner!! you’ve loved & served at King’s so well these past four years and I hope you feel proud. cheering you on!!


I cannot fit all the nice, amazing, wonderful things about you in one paragraph. I am beyond proud of all your accomplishments over the past 4 years and cannot wait to see what you do in the future. You’re the absolute best and I am beyond lucky to have you as a little. You embody all things Grace and Truth and have done so much for our house namesake. You are impressive and strong in every way.alb

All my congrats and love to you Sweet Maggie!
