As part of its 50th celebration, Gateway School hosted the virtual Talking Heads Roundtable discussion on January 14, 2021. The theme of the Roundtable was Forever Community. Past and present students, parents, and staff members gathered virtually to listen as all six Heads of School participated in a discussion led by alumnus Michael Sikand, Gateway Class of 2014.
Hannelore Herbig who founded Gateway in 1970 and was the Head of School for 17 years started the discussion with some highlights and stories about the beginnings of Gateway. Peter Lewis (1987-2000), Kathleen Warren (2000-2001), David Peerless (2001-2008), Percy Abram (2008-2014), and Zachary Roberts (2014-present) then joined a lively discussion as they headed down memory lane. They shared their memories about activities with the students, going on impromptu field trips, and community events. They talked about their goals while at Gateway and highlighted their favorite projects and programs. They all agreed that deep community bonds and committed teachers and parents have strengthened Gateway’s program over the years as they look forward to seeing Gateway thrive for another 50 years.
