Over the last few months, between her academic and athletic commitments and planning for the second annual Human Rights Day at The Bishop’s School, Julie Gantz found she had barely enough time in each day to sleep and eat. But after it was all over, the senior said it was worth it.
“I honestly don’t know how I did it,” she said, “but I wouldn’t have undertaken it if I didn’t believe in the goals of the day.”
Gantz worked for more than a year organizing the event with fellow senior Sarah Levin and other students.
Gantz also captains the girls’ volleyball team and is a member of the Knights’ girls’ water polo, track and swimming teams. Despite her already overloaded schedule, she didn’t hesitate when the opportunity came up to organize Human Rights Day.
“Julie’s drive and dedication in volleyball are truly special, but I am most impressed with her service to her communities - her school, her city, and the world,” Bishop’s volleyball coach Tod Mattox said.
