WHERE GRADS GO
Our students prepare for graduate and professional programs and for the workplace. Graduates have been placed in many areas that make use of their acquired skills that include, but are not limited to:
Daphne Hollinger, class of 2003
A Pike scholar at Gordon, Daphne focused on sustainability, biology and the third world. She then spent three months in Haiti's central plateau working for the agricultural mission ECHO. After that Daphe lived in Burkina Faso, where she worked at The Village of Hope, an organization that cares for AIDS orphans. In 2006, Daphne won the Citizens' Science Writing Competition that was presented at the United Nations. Her essay is about agroforestry in Nepal. Now Daphne is enrolled in Fuller Seminary, in the School for International Studies.
Jeff and Tatyana (Krasnoshek) Divino, class of 2002 and class of 2003
Jeff Divino, a top student and senior class president at Gordon, left to do graduate work in fish ecology at the University of Alberta Canada. His master's thesis resulted in two peer-reviewed publications on fathead minnow biology. Jeff now works in fisheries management for the Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP). Tatyana earned her D.O. and has begun a family medicine residency at Middlesex Hospital. They live in Portland, CT.
Anna Boorse Doubeni, class of 1990
Anna went to Temple Medical School and Duke University for a residency. She married another family practice doctor. They work at UMass Medical School in Worcester, MA where Anna tries to keep up with her kids and maintain an interest in music in the Worcester chorale. Both Anna and her husband have master's in public health degrees. Anna's public health interest is in obesity in underprivileged groups.
Russ Bohl and Rebekah Kostas, class of 2003
Russ writes: "Rebekah and I graduated in 2003, and then we both traveled to Tegucigalpa, Honduras where we taught (middle school science for me, high school English for her) for a year. When we got back, we lived in the Philadelphia area, where we got married. We both taught school there (Rebekah taught high school science for two years, while I taught a year of middle school science and then did AmeriCorps with the New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection). Now I am pursuing a M.S. in wildlife and fisheries science at University of Tennessee - Knoxville, and Rebekah and I are expecting our first child in February!" Professor Boorse writes: "Russ and Rebekah fell in love in my Advanced Techniques in Ecology class, though I don't really claim any credit for that. It was the beauty of mapping purple loosestrife infestations that did it."
Jennifer Bonina, class of 2002
Jennifer fell in love with research while doing a project with former Gordon College professor Grace Ju. She did a master's in plant sciences at University of Florida, came back and taught at Gordon in an interim position for a year and now is in a Ph.D. program at the University of New Hampshire.
