Congratulations to Savanna Rust '17, who won two distinguished awards at Moses Brown in May.
The Class of '48 award which a grant is awarded to a rising senior, after an extensive application process, to pursue a passion over the summer and fall. Savanna will be joining the New York Civil Liberties Union internship program along with several law students, starting all this summer. Her focus will be reproductive rights, racial justice and immigration rights. She will present her research in December.
The second award is the Anthony Leonard Memorial Award, which is awarded to a rising senior who takes a leadership role in embracing the diversity of school community and welcoming all people into it.
Leadership, passion, justice, scholarship... sounds like the Savanna her classmates and teachers came to know at Gordon.
