Lots of education news from our classmates. * Caroline Nelson Kris still loves teaching children with autism and has started her master’s in applied behavior analysis at St. Cloud State’s distance learning program. This summer she visited N.Y.C. and saw Suzanne Plansky ’87. * Bill Kules wrote from home in Tacoma Park, Md., to say he received tenure from Catholic University, where he is an associate professor in the School of Library and Information Science. College visits are in his future with a daughter in 11th grade.* Joyce Sutton Anderson has those college visits all figured out. She and husband Kevin have a daughter in her last year at St. Michael’s College and a son at U.N.H. Joyce and Kevin took advantage of the empty nest to take their second cruise, having the time of their lives seeing Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, and Malta. * Bob Cobuzzi’s mother-in-law, Pauline Ryder Kezer ’63, convinced him it was time to send an update from his home in Chadds Ford, Pa., where he lives with wife Anne and their three kids. Their eldest daughter just graduated from West Virginia University and is looking for a job in psychology, their second daughter is attending Franklin and Marshall, and their son entered seventh grade. Bob has worked in the pharmaceutical industry since completing his Ph.D. and postdoctoral work and is senior vice president for corporate development for Endo Health Solutions. If that weren’t demanding enough, Bob is also an advisory board member for a venture capital group in Denmark and an industry trade advisory committee member for the U.S. Department of Commerce. In February he found time to visit Mayflower Hill for a career conversation with Colby students interested in the pharmaceutical industry. * Gretchen Bean Lurie also got back to Mayflower Hill last spring as an admissions committee member on the Colby Alumni Council. Now she has joined the Career Center committee with Noriko Miyakoda Hall ’87. When Gretchen met with the leadership team for the AISAP Summer Institute (advocates for the community of independent school admissions and enrollment professionals), she found Christopher Tompkins ’89 was part of their leadership team meeting on the beautiful shores of La Jolla, Calif. Gretchen loves running, swimming, and hiking year-round around her home in fabulous Southern Calif. * Robin Clisby Pelczar and her husband enjoyed a great vacation that included an amazing road trip through northern and eastern Arizona, seeing Sedona, Verde Canyon, the Painted Desert, and finally the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. She recommends a similar trip to everyone for the breathtaking scenery. When not traveling Robin works as a benefits officer at Meredith Village Savings Bank, where she’s been for almost 18 years. * While Peter Coley is a banker in real life, he plays a doctor on TV… er, film! This past year, Peter had a cameo part in an independent film written and directed by his cousin Brad Coley. East of Acadia is an eco-thriller set in Eastport, Maine, but filmed mostly in Westport, Mass. Daughter Juliette has a small part as well. * All you folks with college and high school kids, I’ll be coming to you for advice before long. Chris Engstrom and I are figuring out the vagaries of elementary school—our Henri started third grade this fall and loves it so far, thanks to a teacher who is “strict but not so strict that she’s mean, and also very nice but not so nice that you don’t learn anything.” Sounds like I might do well to take a page from her book. * Keep the news coming, my friends—it’s so good to hear from you!
