Lucas Gimbel is a Senior at Manhattan’s Collegiate School. There, he writes avidly for the Collegiate Journal, and is a member of the school’s Symbol’s Task Force, a committee charged with examining how symbols from the school’s nearly four hundred year history fit with its current mission and values. He also regularly volunteers at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House. In the future, Lucas hopes to study the humanities –– with an eye to history and literature. His favorite novel is Lampedusa’s The Leopard, and he is reading Robert Caro’s Master of the Senate.
