Gordonians in the spotlight

Activists, postal ambassadors, and new champions

Yes, that was alumni parent, former coach and longtime friend of Gordon Sydney Montstream-Quas sharing center stage as Governor McKee signed historic gun control legislation on Tuesday. Monstream-Quas is the board chair of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence, and has repeatedly served as a resource for Gordon students who are interested in preventing gun violence. Ms. Monstream-Quas is on the left in the photo above, tweeted by the Providence Journal's Katherine Gregg.


Yes, that was new graduates Annabel Herzlinger '22, Peyton Riegel '22 and Janie Palan '22 (above) helping win the championship at the Rhode Island interscholastic lacrosse league's tournament on Sunday, coached by Gordon's board chair Amanda Riegel.


Yes, that was a Gordon second grader and a Gordon third grader on the winning team at Monday's Seekonk Little League minor league division championship game. The team was Legend Real Estate, Gordon dad Tom Nasti was one of the coaches, and the Gordon pair is on the righthand end of the second row in the photo above.
