A Wave from Lynn

Twelve new Gordon in Lynn interns for 2010-2011 spent a wet day in Lynn during the start of their orientation this week. Students played the infamous mouse-trap game, toured some of Lynn’s sites (among them were the impressive waves at King’s Beach) and spent time painting reflections from their summers. The Gordon in Lynn Internship is an intensive year-long leadership development opportunity for upper-classman which combines student development with community development. Each intern is placed at a community partner and oversees a SALTeam (serve and learn team) of freshman from a Great Conversation Service Section. In addition, interns receive weekly mentoring, training and teaching on leadership and community development. Photo: Gordon students Michelle Norsworthy, Sarah Bradley, Sarah Pitts and Kristen Beebe check out the waves. During a storm, its a bit of a North Shore tradition to check out the huge-swells as they splash over the sea-wall on Lynn Shore Drive. The power of the sea during a summer Nor'easter is an amazing site. . .from a safe distance of course.
