North Shore 100—Gordon Employees Named among Local Leaders

The glossy 80-page magazine features square thumbnail portraits of 25 local heroes. Among the imagery one smile stands out—that of Kristina Stevick ’98, artistic director of History Alive! and property manager for two historic landmarks operated by The College—Old Town Hall and Pioneer Village—in Salem.

The North Shore 100 identifies leaders in the community identified by people across Cape Ann and Essex County. Two Gordon College employees were selected for the Eagle Tribune’s third annual publication.

Kristina Stevick was selected for her work with Cry Innocent and her contributions to Gordon’s newest historic undertaking—The Salem Museum—which will chronicle interpretive panels of the city’s vast history. The museum is a first of its kind for Salem and will shine a new light on the city’s impact in American history.

Irv Levy, professor of chemistry and computer science, is also identified as one of the top leaders in the region for 2011 in the magazine. Chosen for his vision for green chemistry, Levy places tremendous value on making science safer for students and the environment. The profile focused on Levy’s impact with outreach programs and his teaching of the 12 principles of green chemistry beyond the Gordon campus.

Professional journalists, including three students from the Gordon College News Service, overseen by their advisor Jo Kadlecek, spent hours interviewing all the nominees that poured into the newsroom for publisher Karen Andreas and editor David Olsen to review.

Congratulations, Kristina and Irv, for your nominations and leadership on Boston’s North Shore.
