Philosophy graduate and New Hampshire native, Gabrielle Tamasi was named Castleton’s 2017 Outstanding Young Alumni of the Year, announced by President Dave Wolk at Fall Convocation.
After graduating from Castleton University in 2012, Tamasi continued her education at Vermont Law School, completing her Juris Doctor degree and Alternative Dispute Resolution Certificate in 2015. Combining her passion for both schools, she played a vital role in helping to establish and launch the Pre-Law program and club at Castleton, where she has influenced relevant classes and resources for Castleton students interested in getting a law-based degree. Being able to hand deliver the signed agreement from Vermont Law School to Castleton President Wolk remains one of her proudest moments.
Tamasi currently serves as a Policy and Implementation Analyst for the Vermont Department of Corrections where she works to create corrections policies that are used throughout the state. While on campus, she served as a member of the Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society and inaugural football cheerleading team, and was recognized as Castleton’s 2017 Outstanding Young Alumni for her motivation, dedication, and activism in the local community.
