2013 ALUMinaries

David Flink

David Flink is the founder and CEO of nonprofit Eye to Eye National, which provides students with learning disabilities mentoring by older students also working with challenges such as ADHD and dyslexia. His first book, Thinking Differently: A Guide for Parents of Children with Learning Disabilities, comes out in the fall of 2014. In his acceptance speech, Flink said, "Mr. Galloway would say we need to play the game of learning, not the game of school; and it was here [at Galloway] that I fell deeply in love with learning."

 

 

Angelyn Chandler is an architect, currently on leave from New York City's parks department as a Loeb Fellow at Harvard. She was involved in the largest landfill-to-park restoration project to date, the 2,200-acre Freshkills Park, and was the design lead on rebuilding New York City's swimming beaches following Hurricane Sandy. Chandler said, "Galloway gave me license to be an individual and to make my own path through life and learning. [Galloway] also taught me that anything is possible and that to get it, all I have to do is go for it."
