October 2017


From Roland Avenue

In the six weeks since my return to Gilman, I've met and re-met dozens of alumni going as far back as 1954. To a man, the attachment to the School is obvious and the spirit for Gilman is contagious. Everyone spoke of the formative role Gilman played in their personal growth and development and offered keen insights about engaging alumni both near and far. Please keep the stories coming! My door -- and email -- are always open.

Decked Out

Wells Obrecht '82, David Knipp '82, and Rick Diehl '81 hosted a networking event in September. More than 60 local alumni descended on the iconic Natty Boh Tower in Brewers Hill to soak in the sunset views from the building's roof deck. Dustin Rogers-Little '06 manned the grill and Wells talked about the history of the area and its transformation in the last 15 years. See more pictures from the event here.

See photographs from the kickoff. Learn more about the campaign.
