Thursday, May 25, 2017

GILROY DISPATCH -- The keynote speaker is Gavilan alumnus Danielle Rhinehart, who has worked in music promotion, helping up-and-coming artists find a foothold in the industry.

For five years she organized the artists for the Morgan Hill Mushroom Mardi Gras. She earned her Associate’s degree in liberal arts at Gavilan and went on to get her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Communication Studies from San Francisco State University.

An essay by Rhinehart was recently published in The New York Times bestseller, “Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It.” The book is a collection of essays that tell the stories of people who were inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert’s novel.
