At Sewanee, Johnny started every game this fall for the Men's Soccer team and in his free time likes going to CRU and going on bike rides and walks with friends.

Gil is a freshman inaugural member of the Hippocrates Fellows program with an intended major of biology and minor in chemistry. Throughout his high school career, aside from significant academic devotion, he was committed to school organizations with community engagement and health profession focusses. Namely, he served on the executive boards of Key Club, HOSA, and National Technical Honor Society. He knew that he wanted to continue nurturing these interests throughout college, so when he heard about the Hippocrates Fellowship, he looked into it and applied. Aside from the fellowship, in his short time on The Mountain Gil has found many outlets to pursue his passions. He currently serves as the Secretary for Sewanee Health Professions Society, is an active member in Sewanee’s Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity, and a member of Sewanee Multicultural Health Society. If he isn’t studying or in a meeting you can likely find him running on the Perimeter Trail or enjoying a Greenhouse or CoHo event.
