Elissa Kurtz, Stephanie Scarpato, Meryl Poulin, Alex Essman, and Liz Osgood all rendezvoused on the Cape this summer for some quality R and R that brought the CWIH (Colby women’s ice hockey team) Class of 2011 together for the first time since graduation two Junes ago. Kurtz and Scarpato then traveled to Prague to play in the Czech National Challenge Cup, where they helped the North American Stars to a silver medal in a tournament that featured teams from North America, Czech Republic, and Russia. * Nate Bangura moved to Cambridge with Jack Vernamonti and Craig Bunker. He has been working at EMC in Hopkinton since shortly after graduation. Jack just began his first year of medical school at Tufts, and Craig recently wrapped up the major league lacrosse season with the Boston Cannons. * Barbara Santos has begun her third year of teaching in Hartford, Conn., right down the street from Trinity. She teaches high school history, and her classroom is Colby themed! * Adan Hussain has begun his higher education and student affairs master’s program at Ohio State. He’s settled into his assistantship at the vibrant multicultural center, where he works to train students, faculty, and staff on methods to intervene in bias on campus. Though his cohort is small, the school itself is one of the largest in the nation (approximately 60,000 students)—a big change from Colby. * Rebecca Falenderhas started her second year at Tufts Veterinary School, in a class with Michael Verschoor-Kirss ’12. She spent the summer doing research on the incidence of reflux with methadone versus hydromorphone in dogs undergoing anesthesia for cruciate repair surgery. Michael spent the summer working as a veterinary technician and in the intensive care unit at the hospital on campus. * Morganne Kraines moved to Oklahoma and began her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Oklahoma State. * In June Kyla Jacobs, Katie Quinn, Emma Harrington, and Ali Schmidt-Fellner traveled west to go hiking and “moose hunting” in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and fishing in Montana. Along the way they went to Yellowstone and saw a blond brown bear. * Sonia Mahabirstarted a new position at Texas A&M as an assistant coordinator with the women’s resource center. * In JulyDrew Clark started a new job as an underwriter at UnitedHealthcare in Trumbull, Conn. * Solomon Gisembais about halfway through graduate school at the School of Pharmacy in Lawrence, Kan.—and if you think Kansas is all flat, you haven’t been to Lawrence! He also participated in a 5K and surprised himself by winning a medal. He would guess it’s a Kenyan thing but thinks practice has more to do with winning than being Kenyan! YAustin Sutherland continues to live in London and will work there for the remainder of the year. He works for Unum—primarily a disability insurance company—and is in its professional development program, which means he does a series of 12- to 18-month rotations in different business areas. At the start of 2014, he’ll return to Portland to start his third and final rotation in finance. He’s had a great year in the UK—from his time in London he’s become a Tottenham Hotspurs fan—but will be excited to return to Maine for the foreseeable future. This summer he also came home and spent time with Raleigh Werner and Logan Hunter on Cape Cod, which was the perfect summer break. * Sus Hatch spent the past year and a half teaching English in Paris, but she’s back in the States, living with Catherine Fanning ’09 in Cambridge and working at the Appalachian Mountain Club in Boston in volunteer relations and membership. * Robyn Wardell moved to Portland, Ore., to work for FoodCorps, a national service nonprofit that connects kids to real, healthy food. She’s had a great time catching up with Cali Livingstone, Sophie Sarkar, and John Perkins on the West Coast.
