I had the joy of visiting Hanover a few weeks ago to show around a friend who is applying to Tuck. While Covid prevented us from showing her some of our favorite indoor locations—Sanborn, Sherman, a basement full of friends and a competitive game of pong—we reveled in sharing the plethora of outdoor ones—Ledyard, the Gile fire tower, Occom Pond. In a strange time it is comforting to revisit the places we love, even if they are not quite the same as they were. I feel similar joy in sharing the stories of many of our fellow ’15s in this issue.
From Adam Schneider, “I will be completing my service on active duty in the Navy in October. I will eventually be pursuing a joint J.D./M.P.P. at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and Georgetown Law Center beginning in the fall of 2021. Until then I am taking a gap year to travel across the West hiking, climbing, skiing, and visiting the many Dartmouth friends I haven’t seen since joining the Navy!”
Kelsey Stimson passed the Colorado Bar exam and celebrated by learning to whitewater kayak in Charlemont, Massachusetts.
Writes Keta Burke-Williams, “While at Harvard Business School (where I’m a second-year now) I founded a niche fragrance brand with my sister called Aspen Apothecary!
