Little Falls Community High School is pleased to announce that Sullivan Gwost has been chosen as the Boy of the Month for October 2019. He is the son of Chris and Gabrielle Gwost.

During his high school years, Gwost has been involved in the school musicals as a cellist. A great deal of his time has also been devoted to Improv, a student-led leadership team that uses impromptu, theater-style performances in the school and community to bring awareness to important social topics. Gwost has also been on the honor roll all throughout high school, and he was recently chosen as one of the top five candidates for Homecoming 2019.

Musical volunteer activities of Gwost are many! Whether playing his cello at local churches or at community events such as the Little Falls Dam Festival, Christmas at the Mansions, the Big Dig block parties, the Greenfair Folk Festival, or at Great River Arts, Gwost always has a genuine smile on his face. Because of his giving personality, he lists the annual Day of Caring as one of his favorite school activities.

Steve Wilger, LFCHS math teacher, says, “Congratulations to Sully Gwost on being named the LFCHS October Boy of the Month. I have had Sully in my Geometry class, and I have had the pleasure of being Sully’s advisor at LFCHS.” Wilger has always appreciated Sully’s maturity, direction, independence and sense of style. He elaborates, “Sully is loved by his classmates because he is incredibly kind and sincere. He treats others the way all human beings deserve to be treated.”

Anne Graeve, high school science teacher, shares, “Sullivan is one of the most genuine young men with whom I have had the pleasure to work. He consistently puts a smile on my face simply because of who he is—a passionate musician, a determined student, an honest to the core, caring human being. I appreciate his self-knowledge, his commitment to the development of his talents, his ability to laugh at himself and his sense of humor.”

Gwost notes playing the cello, being with friends and family, hiking, thrifting, and jogging as his favorite activities whenever he has spare time.

Gwost looks forward to pursuing a Cello Performance degree at either St. Olaf in Northfield, Minnesota, or Lawrence University in Wisconsin.
