Construction is expected to be complete in September of 2018. Please join us in the fall for tennis matches at our new location. If you are interested in supporting this project and naming a court, please contact Laurie Bilger, J.D. at bilgerl@gilmour.org or call (440) 473-8056.
  • Fantastic Gathering of GA Golfers Pay Tribute to Charlie Tremont '70

    If you could choose the ideal weather for a day of golf, you would choose the weather we had on Monday, June 25. On that picture-perfect day, 132 golfers gathered at Shaker Heights Country Club to support the Gilmour Academy Golf Classic in memory of Charlie Tremont '70. The event was made possible through the generous support of alumni and friends.

    Many thanks to all who made this event the success that it was. The Presenting Sponsor was Matthew P. Figgie ’84, Figgie Capital and The Figgie Foundation. The Gold Sponsor was the Tremont Family and the Silver Sponsor was Michael Elliott ’71 & Tucker Ellis LLP. Many other local businesses, alumni, family and friends of Gilmour supported the event with sponsorships and donations.

    Thank you to all who golfed, attended, sponsored and supported the tournament, which raised more than $34,000 toward the establishment of a scholarship in Charlie's name.

    We hope you’ll join us in June 2019 for next year’s tournament!

  • Young Alum Starting Second Master’s Program this Fall at Harvard Kennedy School of Government

    We caught up with Brittany Janis ’03 as she starts a brand new chapter in her life. We connected as she was in the process of moving from California to Cambridge, where she will pursue her second master’s degree. This master’s will be in public administration and, after being accepted at every school to which she applied, she will attend Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
     
    After graduating from CWRU in 2007, Brittany worked on political campaigns for Sherrod Brown and Armond Budish. In 2008, she moved to New York and began working in the public benefit sector. She has been working in the nonprofit space ever since and, in 2012, earned her master’s in philanthropy and development from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.
     
    For the past 10 years, she has been working to support causes she cares about – from arts education to the environment. Most recently, she worked as a major gifts officer for the Environmental Defense Fund. In her free time, she volunteered as a board member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and served as the Bay Area Chapter President from 2015-2017.
     
    This next degree will allow her to shift to a role in which she advises how capital can be strategically deployed to bring about the greatest social and environmental impact. Brittany said, “Annually, only two percent of the US GDP is spent philanthropically. While that philanthropy is critical, there is still a large gap between that support and the amount of capital needed to help solve the world’s most pressing problems.”
     
    When asked how her GA experience helped shape her, Brittany said, “My Gilmour education was foundational to who I am as a person. I have chosen my career path in part because I want to do what I can to create a more humane and just society.” She added that, while she might be biased, she believes that there is no way she would be where she is today without the speech and debate program. She explained, “As a debater I learned about so many of the systemic challenges our society faces, and the importance of being an educated and involved citizen. It gave me the confidence to speak my mind and the conviction that I could make a difference.”
     
    We are confident that Brittany will continue to use her talents to bring about change. Best of luck in Cambridge, Brittany!

    Kelley, Kim and Carly - 2018 D3 National Champions

    DIII National Champions Chock Full of Lancers

    This spring, the Norwich University Cadets beat Elmira College to win the 2018 NCAA Division III Women’s Ice Hockey National Championship. And they did it with three former Lancers on the team! Congratulations to Carly Menges ‘15, Kelley Madden ‘16 and Kim Tiberi ‘14. The Chagrin Valley Times just did a nice feature on the story (it didn't include Kim because she's from Raleigh, N.C., outside the CVT readership area). And next year, the team will add another Lancer to its ranks. Morgan Tefft ‘18 committed to Norwich at the April NCAA Signing and Commitment ceremony!

    Young Alum Making His Mark in Washington. D.C.

    Jack Dolan '11 has been working in DC since graduating from Middlebury with an English degree in 2015. His first job was an internship in Senator Rob Portman’s office, where he worked for several months before landing a job with Congressman Mike Turner from Dayton. In January 2016, he made the move back to Senator Portman’s office to work on health care policy as a legislative aide. His responsibilities include policy research, stakeholder management, constituent engagement, drafting legislation and staffing the Senator. After about 18 months working on health care policy, he switched to tax work in mid-2017 to help with the reform legislation that eventually passed last year. Today, he still covers tax issues, but is also heading up his office’s transportation and infrastructure portfolio and hopes Congress can “get something big done along those lines later this year.”

    Asked what he most enjoys about working in the political arena, Jack says it’s serving the public. “But,” he added, “the most interesting part of this whole business is the behavioral component, the insights you glean about the way other people think and act.” He continued, “In my few years down here in DC, I've come to believe that, if you want to learn about people and why they do the things they do, politics is the best teacher, bar none.”

    Reflecting on his time at Gilmour, Jack is quick to credit Mr. Lindley and his AP Government class for piquing his interest in government and political debate. He loves getting the chance to visit with Mr. Lindley and the AP Government students he brings to DC each year. He also said, “As somebody who reads and writes all day for a living, I am grateful to the wonderful English teachers I had during my time at Gilmour.” He joked, “ They not only inspired me to study literature in college but also gave me the writing and rhetorical skills I needed to trick people into thinking that my degree qualified me for a public policy job.”

    We’d argue there was no “tricking” required, Jack. Looking forward to following your career as you make your mark in Washington!

    The honors keep coming for Patrick Mohorcic '1
    4, a senior at the College of Wooster, where he has been the starting center on the football team for the past two years and involved in a host of service-oriented campus organizations.

    Earlier this fall, Patrick was named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® and, after winning the fan vote, was named team captain. As such, he was interviewed on ESPN during the Home Depot College Football Awards in December.

    Patrick has now been named one of four finalists in the collegiate division for the Coach Wooden Citizenship Cup, which is awarded to the most outstanding role model among athletes. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony in Atlanta on April 25.

    The College of Wooster’s president, Sarah Bolton, said, "Patrick has been an extraordinary member of The College of Wooster community." She continued, "His leadership through service has made a powerful impact in the lives of both Wooster students and the children in our city. He has not only changed things for the better, he has inspired others as well.”

    Head of School Kathy Kenny, who taught Patrick while he was at Gilmour, said, During his time at Gilmour, Patrick lived our mission. His zeal and perseverance were witnessed in the classroom, on the playing fields and through his community service.” She added, “I am not surprised that Patrick is a finalist for such prestigious national recognition. He truly is a young man who puts the needs of others ahead of his own and, by doing so, inspires others to follow his lead.

    Ali Althans '11 Spearheads Research Project and Has Findings Published

    Ali Althans ’11 is a third-year medical student at Case Western Reserve University’s School of Medicine and, in the midst of her clinical rotations and board exams, spends a significant amount of time immersed in research in the field of colorectal surgery. She has been an integral part of several published papers and has traveled around the country presenting her findings at surgical conferences. She started off her career in science and research at Gilmour with the Catalyst program, where she had the chance to assist with research in the department of Cardiology at the VA hospital.
     
    Most recently, she spearheaded and received funding for a study involving both University Hospitals and MetroHealth Medical Center, which aimed to identify disparities in colorectal cancer care that may be influenced by socioeconomic factors. She was the first author of the manuscript that resulted from this work, titled “Colorectal Cancer Safety Net: Is It Catching Patients Appropriately?” The paper was recently published in the journal Diseases of the Colon and Rectum. To access the paper, click here.
     
    Ali presented the findings of the study this summer at the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons annual meeting in Seattle.
     
    After graduating from medical school next year, Ali plans to complete a residency in general surgery and become an academic surgeon.
