Gilmour’s own Bryson Simpson '20 is one of the 100 “exceptional young people” selected for the Disney Dreamers Academy! Students were chosen for demonstrating intellectual curiosity, compassion, courage, a positive outlook and generous spirit, and optimism about the future.
The Academy is a four-day experience designed in partnership with Steve Harvey and ESSENCE Magazine to reward young dreamers who demonstrate potential. During their stay at Disney, they will enjoy interactive career workshops in everything from animation, journalism and entrepreneurship to culinary arts and zoology; motivational talks; and networking and interviewing opportunities. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore the Disney campus behind-the-scenes and enjoy the theme parks during their March 21-24 stay.
