Former Student Alan Blinder
by Janis Gaines
Very proud of former student, Alan Blinder, and his journalism success! Publishing for The New York Times is as good as it gets. Alan was my student at GACS when he was in 6th grade, and I knew he was meant for leadership even then. He wanted to lead a Model UN in my Social Studies class, which we did. He would read the biography of Colin Powell in his leisure time. He was on a daily email list for the White House and had plans to be President one day. He has met many famous people in politics. And, fun fact, he’s a Valentines’ Day baby. Honored to have been a part of his journey!
