We had a special guest speaker at Upper School assembly yesterday. Rose Stuckey Kirk, P’18 and member of our Board of Trustees, made a brief presentation and then fielded student questions. As part of our regular “speakers series” in the Upper School, Rose spoke about labels and how we all use them in an effort to understand people. She also clearly articulated the many reasons how the use of labels limits or even prevents our ability to connect with, respect and understand others. It was a timely lesson.

Rose is a highly successful executive, currently serving as Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer for Verizon. An accomplished speaker, she was both engaging and clearly got her message across to our students. We are so fortunate to have Rose, her son Connor ’18 and husband, Robert, in the GSB community.
Gill St. Bernard’s is a private, coeducational day school for students age three through grade 12, located in suburban New Jersey. Each of the three school divisions provides a vigorous, meaningful and age-appropriate curriculum, and all students benefit from the environmental learning opportunities that exist on our 208-acre campus.
