Highlanders Unite in Support of Movember

Students and faculty are supporting the worldwide campaign to raise funds for men’s health causes during “No Shave November.” All are invited to join The Gunnery Highlanders United Team and donate funds in support of the Movember Foundation, which is dedicated to uniting experts from around the world and prioritizing funding for the top three men’s health issues: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
Last year, The Gunnery raised $2,100 for the Movember Foundation. This year, the Highlanders United team, led by Library Director Edward Surjan with Aris Papathanasiou ’20 and Zander Lizotte ’20, has set a goal of $4,000. In addition to raising funds, students and faculty will be raising awareness by committing to grow a mustache or beard in November. Sign up, support the team and learn more here.

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
