Help Gabriel Noble achieve his dream.

Our friend and classmate Gabriel Noble is just eight credits shy of being the first member of his family to graduate college. His parents, both US Marines, faced unexpected financial hardship in Gabriel's senior year and he was unable to receive the financial support necessary to pay for his tuition to complete his degree. During his time at Elon University, Gabe has been a dedicated friend and student. He is truly a role model to his peers as a passionate and creative leader. We are kindly requesting that the administration of Elon University helps our classmate finish his Elon education.

Gabe is an important member of the arts community at Elon. Gabe was a DJ and station promoter for WSOE. He worked in the English Department as an office assistant and in Residence Life as a member of the new-student orientation team. He acted in several student films and danced in the 2013 spring dance concert, Moving Visuals. He had two original works published in Elon's annual journal Colonnades. While at Elon he has greatly improved his skills as a writer, dancer and actor. Gabe hopes to use these skills to have a career promoting art within local communities. Even as a student, Gabe has been heavily involved in service within the Burlington community. He volunteered at the Burlington Housing Authority and worked on the production team of the local Christian film Find a Way. Currently, he works for the after school youth program at the Burlington YMCA and is a mentor to a local youth with cerebral palsy.

Gabe has become a part of our Elon family. He is always supportive of our creative endeavors and has a warm and compassionate spirit that inspires those around him. To see our friend abandon his education at the finish line is a tragedy. His actions as an engaged learner and student leader merit the financial aid necessary to walk across the stage with us at graduation this spring.
