A Celebration of TGS Students: Past and Present



Dear TGS Community:

What a special week of recognition for our current students! First, congratulations to Avery Spade (’22) for swimming to the state title in women’s 100 fly and 2nd place in the 100 breaststroke, Division 3. Avery also received an All-American consideration time in the fly! Congratulations Avery!

On the heels of Avery’s accomplishment, we were all treated to a surprise visit by Congressman Raul Grijalva yesterday. The CD3 representative was here to recognize Christopher McCormick (’19), who won this year’s Congressional App Challenge competition! He submitted his app titled Laser Cut Scrap Wood ScannerCongratulations Christopher!

We continue to be proud of the Gregory School legacy of producing graduates who make the world a better place. One such alum is Dr. Mike Davis, Head of School at Colorado Academy in Denver. He has generously shared a recent message he wrote for his school community reflecting on the impact that a special Gregory School faculty member had on his life. The content of his message is timely and much appreciated. We are grateful to have it included on our site.

An important footnote to this week of recognition is to acknowledge the kindness and compassion of our student body in honoring their beloved faculty member, Kevin Rolle. Mr. Rolle was celebrated and thanked for his service with special lunches with his advisory and seniors, messages of love and care, and a day of Hawaiian shirts throughout campus. We will continue to keep the community updated as we determine how we can be most helpful in the months ahead. We are grateful for the many offers of assistance from the TGS community.

Best wishes to all of you for the weekend ahead. May you take time to reflect on the service and sacrifice of our country’s military members, past and present, over the holiday weekend. We’ll see everyone bright and early on Tuesday morning.

With continued gratitude for our special school community,

Julie A. Sherrill, Ph.D.
Head of School
