Diversity Team

The Diversity Team is comprised of faculty members and administrators who work to develop education programs for the school community:

  • to better understand our student’s needs,

  • to educate our community on issues relating to race,

  • to provide a space for communication and conflict resolution

  • to create programs to celebrate our community’s diversity, and 

  • to foster healthy dialogue and engagement

The Diversity Team meets once a month to plan new ideas and events. Diversity Team members meet the leaders of the Diversity Parent Council monthly to communicate and coordinate events.

  • Freshmen Summer Reading: Born A Crime by Trevor Noah

  • Freshmen Orientation: COR group discussions of the novel and the impact of race in today’s American society

  • Holocaust survivor, Mr. Peter Stern, spoke to the HGP community about his harrowing journey during the Second World War. The event was coordinated with the help of the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center.

  • Diversity education trip to Washington, D.C. for faculty members.

Members: Maria Lehr-Fortino, Dr. John Scanlon, Dr. Tom Saxton, Dr. Aaron Pollock, Mark Whartenby, Fr. Dan Sormani, John Fitzpatrick, Lilly Wurts, HGP president Gregory  Geruson, HGP principal Kevin Burke
