Gordon, a graduate of Penticton Secondary School, B.C., placed in the top 1% in the 1999 biology competition and was one of sixteen students to be offered the University of Toronto's most prestigious undergraduate admission scholarship in 2000. In addition to being a U of T National Scholar, Gordon received a National Biology Competition Scholarship. Gordon, 18, is considering specializing in either Biochemistry or Molecular Genetics and Molecular Biology. At U of T he is active in the Hart House Symphonic Band and the chapel choir at the Newman Centre. Gordon's enthusiasm and energy are aptly expressed in the quote that appears in the sign-off of his e-mail messages: "...the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."
