Class Correspondent:Clare Murray
Saying the Class of ’18 has moved mountains since graduating is most definitely an understatement. To begin, Samantha Carter has been spending her weekends volunteering as a mentor with Minds Matter to help low-income, high-achieving high school students through the college process. * Chase Goldston has been working as an agriculture volunteer with the Peace Corps in Ethiopia, spending most of his time in the dirt, making household gardens and beehives, teaching English and nutrition lessons, funneling volunteer earnings almost purely toward downloading Cleveland sports highlights, and reading on his porch. * Avery Heilbron has been abating lead paint in homes across Massachusetts while also working as a data analyst at Sun Life. * Anna Ramsey has been working at the asthma clinical research center at Boston Children’s Hospital. She’s been especially enjoying heading north to adventure in the mountains and lakes on the weekends. * Between Samantha Attar and Molly McGavick, the Class of ’18 has also covered great territory in Boston, getting to know all of the hot spots and yummy eats. * Music-wise, Christian Sparacio established a solo music project under his name (@sparaciomusic) and sold out Arlene’s Grocery in the Lower East Side (keep an ear out for his debut EP in early 2020). * On the graduate school front, Brooke Gentry started a master’s of arts in law and diplomacy at the Fletcher School at Tufts University in Boston. Kathleen Mason began studying at the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University for a master’s in environmental management. And Haley Jones began studying for her master’s of arts in teaching foreign languages at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies. * As for me, Clare Murray, the Class of 2018 correspondent, well, I’m enjoying the process of getting re-adjusted to life in the United States for now; reconnecting with my classmates has sure been the highlight of the process thus far. I’m eager to continue reporting what new and exciting things these mountain-movers are up to!
