Hi, y’all. Well, it’s now been a full six years since we graduated. Doesn’t it seem like we deserve another reunion already? I’m ready to see you all back in Hanover already but, in the meantime, let’s hit it with the updates from our classmates.
First, some exciting ’12 family news to report that will likely impact all of our alumni experiences: Cheryl Bascomb ’82, mom of Rosa Van Wie, has been named VP for alumni relations, leading the College’s alumni engagement worldwide. Rosa writes, “I’m still kicking it in upstate New Hampshire, teaching, acting, and politics-ing, but I now have another reason to cruise down to Dartmouth on a regular basis and make a visit to Hanover, specifically Blunt. Mom is getting ready to move with all of our help, and soon she’ll be up and running, connecting two of her favorite things, and helping Dartmouth and friends connect with each other as well. She’s ready to use all the marketing skills she’s gained and honed over a long career, and once she finds some way to add sports into the mix it will literally be a dream job that involves only her favorite things.” Congratulations to Cheryl, Rosa, and family.
Plus, Rosa let us know that Kelly McGlinchey has been running half marathons to raise money for Ujima, a farm that provides food-farming connections to youth from N.Y.C. Go, Kelly!
Samantha Knowles, a Brooklyn-based filmmaker, saw her short documentary The Blue Line premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this year as part of the event’s N.O.W. New York Times screening of opinionated documentaries. The documentary tells the story of an explosive controversy in Sam’s hometown of Warwick, New York, and how the small town was affected. Congratulations, Sam!
Boston is losing a couple of good ones, although the Dartmouth contingent there is still going strong. Our dedicated class president Tim Koeth has relocated from Boston to Philadelphia. (Wish him luck and say “Hey” if you’re in the area!) And the brilliant Alina Everett will be joining the class of 2020 at Cornell’s S.C. Johnson College of Business this fall. Any other alumni/ae heading that way?
And, finally, in the world of Dartmouth romance: James C. Reed married Erin J. Feeney at the Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park in Waterford, Connecticut, on Saturday, April 21. The two met as classmates at the Yale School of Medicine in 2013. Three illustrious Dartmouth grads served as groomsmen: Reed Stephens, David Lumbert, and Travis Blalock. Dartmouth ’12s Rohan Chaudhary, Bishnu Panigrahi, Michael Katz, and Gregory Troderman danced the night away. Fellow Dartmouth and Yale med classmates Alanna Kaplan ’11, Emily Hyun ’13, and Angela Gauthier ’13 celebrated with the newlyweds!
Enjoy your summer, wherever you are, and please continue to write in with your latest joys, ventures, travels, and more!
