FEARLESS: The Class of 2013

This week Surge wants to recognize all of the Gettysburg College graduates who will use what they learned and experienced over the past four years to fearlessly promote change, seek justice, and challenge inequality after leaving Gettysburg College. The following list contains the names of all of the members of the class of 2013 who have been recognized by other members of the campus community as leaders of change, and we are proud to claim these fearless and inspirational students as our own. We know, however, that we do not have everyone who deserves to be recognized listed below, so feel free to continue nominating your friends, peers, co-workers, students — any senior that you believe will go on to create positive change post-graduation. Nominations can be received either through comments at the bottom of this post or through emails to surgegettysburg@gmail.com, and names will be added as soon as possible after they have been sent in.

Congratulations to the Gettysburg College Class of 2013, and especially to all those who are named as fearless today.
