Where Are They Now?
StoneBridge graduates go on to do great things! See what some of our alumni are doing now.
SARA GARTH GAINOR
CLASS OF 2010
She’s the first person potential students and families talk to as they explore enrolling at StoneBridge. With vigor and an energetic passion for the school’s mission, Sara Gainor, SBS Class of 2010, who is also an SBS parent, is perfect for the job.
CLASS OF 2007
After graduating from StoneBridge in 2007, Josh Herring didn’t stray far from the education field. He is now a professor of Classical Education at Thales College in North Carolina, where he is responsible for building and leading his department, developing a teacher training program oriented toward the classical classroom.
TESS PARROCO FIKE
CLASS OF 2015
In her occupation as a video producer and editor, 2015 StoneBridge graduate Tess Parroco Fike is blessed to work with family and co-workers who are believers. A core focus of the Parroco Production Group is to make sure their clients feel valued and cherished.
CLASS OF 2017
Will Damron (Class of 2017) credits his time at StoneBridge for preparing the way for the path he is on now, not only academically, but in his personal life and career. He even met his future wife, Alex Mann (Class of 2014), at StoneBridge. though he did not know it then.
ALEX MANN DAMRON
CLASS OF 2014
Alex Mann (Class of 2014) and Will Damron (Class of 2017) met at Stonebridge School about eight years ago. They didn’t really know each other at the time. Fast forward to 2019, when they reconnected at a Big House Church small group. Their friendship grew throughout the following years, and by May 2021, they knew their relationship had grown to more than just friendship. As they reflected, they realized they had been best friends for the past six months.
CLASS OF 2001
It’s not every day that someone gets engaged during Chrysalis, a time-honored StoneBridge tradition. In fact, it’s only happened once…to a teacher.
On a frigid night in 2005, Danny Gonzalez (Class of 2001), who was at the time a math teacher and chaperone, proposed to his then-girlfriend, Mary. He wanted to be alone to pop the question so he asked Mary to go for a walk in the venue’s garden. She agreed, but only if she could wear his jacket. The only problem was the ring was in that jacket. He handed her a card written by her father and was able to get down on one knee. The rest, as the saying goes, is history.
CLASS OF 2020
Justin Ratanataya, Class of 2020, who attended StoneBridge from pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade, was a familiar face among our athletes and for good reason. He helped out with virtually every sport StoneBridge offers, from soccer to basketball to volleyball and more throughout his high school term. While StoneBridge is known for its rigorous academic program, it is equally known for its ability to develop and hone students’ leadership skills.
CLASS OF 2017
Graduation is an exciting and sometimes stressful time in the life of a StoneBridge senior. Leaving behind the familiar and heading off into the unknown can be both fun and frightening. StoneBridge alum and current P.E. teacher Katie Wingard, Class of 2017, offered some advice to this year’s seniors.
CLASS OF 2005
When SBS Alumna Kenna Cribb graduated from StoneBridge in 2005, she never anticipated being a teacher/director. “I was basically right out of high school and in college classes when I was asked to take over directing the theater program at StoneBridge. By being a prefect at StoneBridge, and empowered by teachers to lead, I was able to believe I could step into this role at such a young age,” she said.
CLASS OF 2012
SBS Alumnus Ashton Love, Class of 2012, credits his 13-plus years at StoneBridge for grounding him in biblical truth and helping shape the man of character he is today. “You can get a good education anywhere, but it’s the environment and the Biblical worldview that set StoneBridge apart from the others,” Love says.
KARA MCCORMICK BONVILLIAN
CLASS OF 2007
A standout moment at StoneBridge School’s 40th Anniversary Gala, May 15, occurred when alumna Kara McCormick Bonvillian, Class of 2007, shared how her StoneBridge education and experience prepared her for the greatest storm of her life when she was diagnosed with cancer at age 20. “The years I spent at StoneBridge-6 years old to 18 years old-they were defining years.
CLASS OF 2008
SBS Alumnus Sam Gainor has stayed connected to StoneBridge School since he graduated in 2008. It would be hard for him not to—his mother, Kathy Gainor, has been a familiar face at the school since 2000, and currently serves as the Director of Lower School Student Support Services.
Held the first Thursday in January. All alumni are invited back to campus to participate in this special chapel.
