Congratulations, Joe Gilbert!
« on: June 18, 2020, 07:45:04 PM »
I just learned that Joe graduated high school this spring and will be attending Olin College in Needham, MA.

The last time I saw Joe, he was helping John McNamara with the magneto phone line on the Mountain Extension this past Fall Work Weekend.

Congratulations, Joe!
What–me worry?

Congratulations Joe! 

I strongly recommend reading the link about Joe's activities in High School.  He has really made some amazing accomplishments.

"He is a top student and frequent volunteer who plans to study engineering."

Congratulations Joseph!  That is a very impressive list of accomplishments for a young man. You’ve really come into your own. I hope that you’re gap year is helpful and that you have great success in college. Hope to see you at the Fall Work Weekend!
