Thomas S. Gill '01
The 2019 Young Alumnus Award Recipient
Feeling drawn home to Cleveland, Tom recalls, “I wanted to be in a place that mattered to me. I love Cleveland, so it wasn’t a sacrifice, and my family is here.” After a role as Executive Fellow with the Cleveland Leadership Center, in 2010 he joined the staff of Urban Community School, serving primarily low-income children from Cleveland's west side and founded by the Ursuline Sisters. Hired initially as Development Director, Tom took on various roles before becoming President of UCS in 2017.
