Class NotesView All Notes for Class of 2019
I hope you’re staying warm and are having a good winter! I received a lot of exciting life updates from ’19s for this edition of Class Notes, so let’s get right into the news!
Congratulations to Isalys Quiñones, a former member of Dartmouth’s women’s varsity basketball team, who signed a professional contract to play basketball for A1 Dafni Agiou Dimitriou in Greece. We’ll be cheering you on, Ice!
Stephanie Everett’s one-woman show, It’s Fine, I’m Fine, was one of the first three American theater productions to open post-Covid. Stephanie’s show was presented at Northern Stage in White River Junction, Vermont. Congrats to Stephanie for such an amazing accomplishment!
Taylor Walsh began working as a marketing specialist at the Snyder Group, a marketing firm based in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Colleen O’Connor recently moved to Seoul, South Korea, and began the Schwarzman Scholars program. She writes, “While the program was intended to be in Beijing, an online start has allowed my peers and I to take collective action to safely co-locate in a Covid-contained country. Despite the two-week quarantine in a government facility, being in Seoul has been absolutely wonderful. I’ve even had the chance to meet up with former Dartmouth mentees and will be seeing my tripee next week. The Dartmouth community remains strong in South Korea!”
Ian Marx has been working on producing dance music in his free time and recently collaborated with Michelle He on an original record titled Come On Over. Check it out now on all streaming platforms!
Lauren Bishop changed her name to Lauren Dominick Lewis and will be attending law school at the University of Michigan next fall.
Regan Gore recently started a master’s in education with an emphasis on social foundations through the University of Virginia Curry School of Education and Human Development. Since the beginning of quarantine, she’s been really enjoying virtually meeting up with ’19s for Dartmouth trivia organized by Tara Burchmore. Regan says that trivia has been a fun time and the questions have been getting more and more creative (and hard!). Big shoutout to Tara for helping ’19s to stay connected and brightening spirits!
George Atkins shared, “Having transitioned home during quarantine in March, it was great to get back to my Boston apartment in mid-September. We Boston folk, including Ian Marx, Nico Turk, and Fisher Katlin, have enjoyed trips to the Charles River Esplanade, playing catch in the Boston Commons, small get-togethers to watch various professional sports championships, and exploring the city in search of cannoli!
My fellow ’19 heavyweight rowers and I recently held a Zoom call, which was great given the dispersive paths we’ve all taken. In attendance from the ’19s class were Ian Marx, Andrew Wright, Kevin He, Henry Sanford, and Albert Mitchell. As well in attendance was Marc Sevastopoulo. We are looking forward to the chance to reconvene in Hanover to watch the current team race in future Gardner Cups (Dartmouth alumni rowing events), the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, or visiting Albert in England for the Henley Royal Regatta!”
I’m so impressed by the things that ’19s have been up to and hope that the class can continue to stay connected! As always, feel free to share your updates through reaching out to me personally, through the class Instagram or by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
