Hi, y’all! We’ve got a wide range of joyful news to celebrate below—let’s get to it!
Paige Franklin just graduated with her master’s in public health from Columbia University and is now working at NYU Langone Health in the research division of the department of emergency medicine. Congrats, Paige!
A few of our classmates are making cross-country moves: The inimitable Dana Or graduated from Harvard Law School and will now be living in Los Angeles. And after living in New York since graduation, Brian Moon relocated to San Francisco this summer to pursue new opportunities and more space to get a dog. They will both certainly be missed by his friends on the East Coast!
We also heard from Will Bishop this month, who writes in about one pretty joyful occasion to kick off our Class Notes: “In May I had the pleasure of flying out from Seattle for the wedding of Aaron Koch and Jennifer Koester at Rollins Chapel! Other ’12 guests included Billy Zou, Jeff Portnoy, Kat Hicks, and Alyssa Lindsay. It was a very small ceremony, so we got to spend the whole weekend with Aaron, Jen, and their families, celebrating their marriage and having a mini-2012 reunion.” Thank you, Will, and cheers to Aaron and Jen!
Bianca Zlatea and Donnie Surdoval ’10 celebrated their marriage in the Swiss Alps this summer, surrounded by love and a Dartmouth-heavy crew. Raise a glass to the world travelers who are settling back into life in N.Y.C.!
Catherine Roedel and John Ross ’10, Tu’17, made the most of a (truly gorgeous-looking) vacation to the Azores this spring by getting engaged. Congratulations, you two!
Finally, perhaps in a first for the ’12s column, Peter Blair has been accepted for the novitiate for the Dominican Province of St. Joseph to become a Dominican friar. After this year-long experience Peter expects to take his vows and continue onto further religious study. Best of luck, Peter!
That’s all for now, folks—hope you’ve got some gorgeous Labor Day plans ahead of you, whether that means relaxing in your backyard or getting out of town.
