Gabe Manry ‘18 is bright, charming, and possesses an eloquence and self-possession that belies his age. At just 17, he’s already lived all over the world as a military brat, and in fact lived in Australia before landing in Virginia, where he’s resided since elementary school. He started at FCS in the 2nd grade, and now is about to...
