Jonathan Clarkson Gibbs ’52 Leaders of the Year Award Celebration

DGALA’s President Brendan Connell, Jr. ’87 and VP Melanie Pastuck ’11 were surprised and extremely honored to receive The Jonathan Clarkson Gibbs Leaders of the Year Award at a recent dinner in Hanover (Club and Group Officers Weekend). Mel was unable to attend and receive her award, which Brendan accepted on her behalf, so we wanted to invite you to join us in celebrating Mel as we pass on her award to her too.

The award was made more special when we learned about the amazing Mr. Gibbs. Jonathan Clarkson Gibbs II ’52 (1852, that is!) was a pioneering missionary and educator as well as a politician during Reconstruction, serving as Florida’s first black Secretary of State. He was a member of the abolitionist movement while at Dartmouth, and he was only the third African-American to graduate from the College.

Hope to see you soon to celebrate Mr. Gibbs, Black History Month, Brendan, and Mel.
