The late designer of haute couture handbags Michael Gordon came to the US from Hungry and never forgot his humble beginnings; he set up the Michael Gordon Foundation to be funded upon his death. The mission of the foundation is to aid children under 18 years old in their education, health and welfare. Since Gordon’s passing in 1998, the foundation has helped countless children further their education and other endeavors. This year’s recipients include freshman Katie Giorgi; juniors Anna Bujinowski, Kimberly Keane, Demi Komunicki, Michele Sciannantena and Valbona Vucetaj; and senior Priscilla Spano. Principal Sister Thomasine Stagnitta told Standing O, “These young women were honored for their scholastic achievement and academic promise.” The nine lucky girls will split more than $23,000 in scholarship funds. Standing O sends out kudos!
