Happy New Year, ’18s!

Well, 2020 has come to a close. After living through a year with its fair share of uncertainty, fear, and strife, many of us are entering 2021 with a great deal of hope for what’s next. In late October Tiffany Dyson reflected on the year we just experienced and all that is to come. She wrote, “With a week until Election Day and the end of the year in sight, my dream for 2021 is simply that America and its people can start to heal. There has been collective grieving of epic proportions this year, as the weaknesses and limitations of our country have been exposed by the pandemic. I hope there is more compassion and understanding for those around us, especially for those who differ from ourselves. I hope there is a greater appreciation for life, since we’ve been shown how easily it can be disrupted and taken away.” Thank you for your poignant reflection, Tiffany—I know many ’18s share the same dream as you. Here’s to 2021!

Though 2020 had its fair share of ups and downs, we have plenty of exciting class news to share! In early October Sammi LaFontaine and Christian Humann ’17 got engaged in Stamford, Connecticut. Sammi and Christian met in October of the fall term in 2015, and are so excited to embark on the next chapter of their lives together. Congratulations to you both!

And in more exciting news, Alexa Escalona and Thomas Lee Hodsden III were married on October 4. Their special day was six years to the day since they first started dating. Alexa and Thomas celebrated their wedding with an intimate ceremony at Simon Pearce that showcased all the things they loved about their relationship and the time they spent at Dartmouth. Give a rouse for Alexa and Thomas—the class of 2018 wishes you both all the best!

Thank you to everyone who shared their reflections and life updates. Happy New Year—let’s make 2021 a great one!
