Student Spotlight: Katie Gorman

Watch out world, guess who’s emerging from the pool and becoming one with the land people? That’s right, Katie Gorman! If it wasn’t obvious before, Katie’s been on the Washington College swim team and served as the Captain for the past two years.

Outside of the pool, Katie is a Sociology major with a minor in Justice, Law and Society from Whippany, New Jersey. She’s also a cat mom to Millie, who she adopted from the Kent County Humane Society! Now that she is a senior, I asked Katie what her favorite memory at WAC has been so far.

“I would have to say when the women’s swim team got 4th place at conferences last year,” said Katie, “It came down to the last relays and it was one of the most exciting moments!” After spending four years at Washington College, graduation is right around the corner and the reality of becoming an alumni is becoming more real.

“I definitely have grown a lot as a person over the past four years,” shared Katie, “I have had many experiences and opportunities that I never would have imagined. Also being a captain of the swim team for two years has really helped me to learn and develop skills that will help me in the future!”

Katie was also named with All-Centennial honors at the Centennial Conference held on February 22-25 at Franklin & Marshall College and finished her swimming career with four All-Centennial honors! If you see Katie on campus, give her a hello!
