Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2010
Hi, ’10s, I hope you’ve all been having a lovely spring. Can you believe it’s been 10 years since we finished freshman year?! Onto the updates.
James Cart informed me of a mini-reunion of our classmates during the weekend of Tuck Winter Carnival in February. Current Tuck students Meghan McDavid, Bo Yanker, Tom Shanahan, Tayla Martin and Abbe Cart—along with Tuck partner (to Abbe) James—were joined by other ’10s attending business schools across the country: Doug Nelson, Cary Stathopoulos, Benji Meigs, Scott Niehaus, Ellen Ludlow, Leigh Rorick and Joey Dang. They all enjoyed a sunny weekend of skiing and celebration in Hanover.
Emmy Bengston just moved from Brooklyn to the Bay Area and started work as a consultant for progressive nonprofits. She is catching up on 18 months of sleep deprivation and still wears a Hillary button everywhere. (I might add that Emmy was interviewed in a podcast in The Guardian about her role as Hillary Clinton’s former deputy social media director! A very interesting listen.)
Kevin Mwenda is hoping to wrap up his Ph.D. in geographic information science and cartography from the geography department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, next year. Later this year he’ll start his job search in academia or industry.
Tay Stevenson cofounded Generation Atomic, a nonprofit aimed at addressing climate change by promoting nuclear power through grassroots advocacy. He didn’t tell me much more, but I’ll try to tease out some more information for a future column.
Thea Sutton updates us from San Francisco: “I’m working in Genentech’s early development group on the applied innovation team and loving my job. The ’10 soccer girls were recently reunited at the wedding of Myra Sack (full-time program director at Squashbusters while also crushing b-school in Boston) with Kelsey Quick (business operations maven at App Nexus in N.Y.C.), Allison Hubbard (SquashBusters manager/badass in Boston), Jenny Stone (high powered attorney in Chicago, soon-to-be clerk in D.C.) and Maggie Goldstein (the very talented head of talent at Caliber Schools in San Francisco). The gang was all there almost exactly 10 years after our freshman preseason.”
Finally, I’d like to thank our classmates who contributed their time and energy to the Dartmouth College Fund’s Granite Challenge, as well as those who contributed in support of Dartmouth and its students.
Last year our class beat out all other classes from ’00 through ’15 by bringing in the most gifts (115) to the fund during the month of March. I hope we’ll be celebrating a repeat victory by now! Thanks to Eli Mitchell for reminding me about the Granite Challenge, and to her and the 10 other volunteers in our class who made the trek up to Hanover to make this all happen.
As always, I look forward to your notes. Keep them coming!
