Alumni Awardee: Ann Seavey ’75
Since 1992, Ann Seavey has been a tireless advocate for Gordon students. Hired to develop the recently founded Academic Support Center, she cultivated a department that equips students for success—among them, students with physical or learning disabilities, and students for whom English is a second language. She championed the ethical responsibility of the institution to respect the learning disabilities of students.
Ann continues to innovate, and made possible the launch of a program for first-year students with Asperger’s, non-verbal learning disabilities, social anxiety and traumatic brain injury. For her steadfast care for the hundreds of students she counsels every year, Ann received the Provost’s Award from Gordon in 2007.
At Homecoming and Family Weekend this year, Ann received the Winifred Currie Award in Education for her outstanding service to the education field and the community, and for serving as a distinguished role model for her peers, friends and students.
