Sather Gowdy '11
Alum finds healing through acts of kindness
By Megan Jonas
Sather Gowdy '11 stands in front of the stage at St. Charles School in Spokane as uniformed youngsters file in for an assembly. It's the recent law school graduate's day off from the public defender's office, and he's wearing a Heal Spokane logo shirt that incorporates his signature Afro. He had just spent a few minutes out on the playground getting in the zone for his second job. Although he has spoken to students more than 70 times, he still mentally prepares before sharing about his personal struggles and hopes for his community.
"You guys like stories?" he asks the students. "I think the best ones are the true ones."
