Bill Hardy started with the Class of 1966, but was waylaid by lack of academic motivation and the Vietnam War. He ended up returning to Colby and finishing with our class, somewhat more motivated and still in one piece. He went to law school and started a practice in Lewiston and Portland, Maine. In 1967 Bill married Lona Eldridge ’66. In 2003 they bought a home in Napa, Calif., while still maintaining a home in Portland and a relationship with the firm he started (Hardy Wolf & Downing). They have a son who works as a neuroscientist in a startup brain rehab business in San Francisco, a daughter-in-law who lobbies for children’s health issues in Sacramento, and their first grandchild, born in October. They enjoy the San Francisco opera and ballet offerings. Bill enjoys painting, playing golf, volunteer teaching, and making wine with friends. He’s still grateful to Colby for giving him a second chance. * Jeff Lovitz is completing his 30th year of practicing family medicine in Waterville; however, he stopped delivering babies about five years ago. Now he’s trying to recruit his replacement as he thinks about winding down. His wife, Cindy (Carlisle ’73), teaches kindergarten in Fairfield and still loves it. They have four children, all out of college with chosen careers that involve giving back to society. * All is well with Tom Whidden and his family. His son Avery is a managing director at Deutsche Bank, lives in Darien, Conn., and is married with three children. Daughter Holly lives in NYC and is an executive director of PR for Hearst Publication and is responsible for Elle, Elle Décor, and Town and Country magazines. Tom is still president and CEO of North Technology Group, the owners of North Sails, Southern Spars, North Sportswear, and Edgewater Powerboats. They make sails and carbon fiber masts for boats ranging from small up to 300-foot mega yachts. Most America’s Cup or Volvo (around-the-world) Ocean Race sailboats use North Sails and Southern Spars. They built all of the soft storage for the space shuttle and helped develop a machine that Boeing is using for the new 787 aircraft fuselage. Tom still races sailboats quite a bit, but not as much as during his 1980-2003 America’s Cup years. Tom has tried to stay close to Colby. He spent some time with President Adams last summer, addressed a number of CT Colby alumni last year, and plans to speak at Colby in February about how Colby prepared him for his career. * Sally Vose Mackenzie was awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant at the Vietnam National University in Hanoi for spring 2012. Sally is an associate professor of educational leadership at the University of Maine. In addition to teaching in the college of education’s department of research and international relations, she’ll consult with government officials and others throughout Vietnam regarding school reform, teacher preparation, and leadership development. Sally is a widely published author on educational leadership and has worked extensively with school leaders in Maine and nationally. She and her husband, Goldfarb Professor of Government Cal Mackenzie, who was also awarded a Fulbright, will spend six months in Hanoi. * Congratulations to first-time grandpa Mike Self! His son, David, and David’s wife, Sara, produced a healthy baby boy. Mike lives in North Carolina and still swims every day.
