Our Alumni are Leaders!

 

Katherine (Katie) Coaty ’03, an ensign in charge of the gunnery division aboard the guided missile cruiser USS San Jacinto, was featured in a Newport Daily News article about women in the Navy on August 17, 2012. She is a graduate of Fordham University ’11 where she majored in political science while also taking courses in calculus, engineering and leadership for her Navy ROTC training. She leads a division of 17 enlisted sailors and is in charge of all small arms on the ship. Katie is living proof of her own words, “There are very few jobs left in the Navy that a woman can’t do.”

Sheffield ’77, a marine biologist and Bering Strait agent in the Marine Advisory program (Alaska Sea Grant) at the University of Alaska – Fairbanks, spoke to the 2nd Grade about marine life in coastal Alaskan waters on September 27, 2012. On a visit home to Rhode Island from Nome, Alaska, Gay brought many slides to show to our students. The 2nd Grade will be studying the Arctic and marine life later this year. Gay graduated from UNH ’85 (BS) and University of Alaska-Fairbanks ’97 (MA-Marine Biology).
