Off to college

Natalie Gwynn-Gabriel Alexander, daughter of Nancy Alexander and Phillip Bernstein of New Haven, graduated from Emma Willard School on June 1, school officials said. It was the school’s 194th commencement ceremony. She is shown here with Director of Vocal Music Debra Spiro-Allen.

Jack Easterling, who retired this month after 40 years at the school, delivered the Commencement speech.

Natalie was head of the Twelve Tones, a senior a cappella group, was a member of the choir, inner choir, and Semiquavers, and played in the orchestra. She also played varsity soccer and was a member of Model Congress. Natalie will attend Northwestern University. Founded in 1814, Emma Willard School is one of the oldest college preparatory boarding and day schools for girls in the country, serving more than 300 students in ninth through twelfth grades and the post-graduate year.
