The Impact of Your Gift to The Governor's Fund

Every gift supports a unique Govs experience for our student community. 

Since arriving in Byfield, Isabella Gomez '26 has immersed herself in various aspects of the Govs community, from her involvement in JV Soccer, Theater Tech, and Track and Field, to her commitment to the Black Latinx Association (BLA) affinity group and volunteer work with the GovsPLUS summer program, she is a valued community member.

This year, Isabella trained as a community facilitator in order to use the positive power of peer influence to promote conversation, respect, and civility in our community—here at Govs and beyond. 

Isabella is a respected teammate, peer, and leader
In the words of her JV Soccer coach, Monica Kirschmann, “Isabella has played goalie, an incredibly difficult position, for two seasons. She loves the game and has such respect and affection for her teammates. She's encouraging, even in the most discouraging situations. Isabella is the glue that holds our team together.”

Two special campus experiences stand out to Isabella
World History with Mr. Perry Nelson and weekly Chapel to hear reflections from senior class members. These experiences have provided unique perspectives and lessons from both the global community and her fellow classmates. 

Our community of faculty and student support is strong
“I feel really supported; there is never a time or place where I won't have help available and teachers are always flexible and encouraging when it comes to extra help. My fellow peers are also always willing to share advice and knowledge when needed.” - Isabella Gomez '26


The Governor's Fund is our engine of opportunity. It provides the resources to help our students pursue their passions, expand their understanding of the world, and discover a wealth of positive new experiences every day. We look forward to sharing more student stories with you!
