Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2014
Hello, dear classmates! I am so thrilled I get to see you in just a few weeks’ time at our five-year reunion! The reunion planning committee, led by the wonderful Jen Weissbach, Kasey Boyd, and Sophia Vazquez,has been hard at work organizing a weekend to remember. In the last column I asked you all to send in news along with your answers to the question, “What are you most excited to see or do at our reunion?” I got some lovely responses, so here they are!
Our incredible class president Holly Foster will kick us off with some news and anticipations. She wrote in, “After four years working at State Street Global Advisors in Boston, I moved over to Acadian Asset Management, where I work in business development and sales with Dartmouth ’05 Layne Finnerty, covering endowments and foundations. I am loving the new role so far and beginning to explore part-time business school options for next year. I’m so excited to bring our class back together again at the place where it all began. Can’t wait to see people who I haven’t seen in five years and feel the magic of Hanover and Dartmouth all over again!”
Ryan Toimil emailed, “I’ve been living in south Florida since graduation (my hometown is Boca Raton) and I currently live in Delray Beach with another former baseball alum Christopher England ’15. I’m currently an outside sales representative for a roofing material distribution company called Beacon Roofing Supply and am thinking about business school in the next few years. I hope to attend our reunion and am most excited to see everyone and lose to them at pong just like when we were undergrads.”
Congrats to Nicola Segal and Jorge Rodriguez ’12, who got engaged during Thanksgiving in Paris. The happy couple feels so fortunate to have met at Dartmouth, which of course holds a special place in their hearts. Nicola is also looking forward to seeing everyone back at the College this summer and can’t wait for “that summer smell on campus.”
Emma McDermott will be graduating with a J.D. from Yale Law School this May and starting a Ph.D. in psychology at Harvard this fall. She would love to connect with classmates in the Cambridge, Massachusetts, area, and she’s excited to jump into the Connecticut River again in June.
Nina Montgomery reports from her Ph.D. program in anthropology and business at Oxford. Based on her academic research, she has edited two books, Perspectives on Impact and Perspectives on Purpose, that feature essays by 40 leaders from various sectors discussing social impact and corporate purpose. Both books came out in March and feature introductory essays by Nina.
Joseph Miller was promoted to assistant principal at Success Academy Charter School. As an ice skater, he’s excited to visit Thompson Arena, check in with figure skating club coach Jackie Smith, and eat Collis chocolate scones.
And that’s it for this column. See you in the 603.
