Betsy Lockhart Casey says she “doesn’t have knees, but she does have some news.” Betsy was gifted an adorable black lab puppy for her 50th, an awesome present. Betsy works in the guidance department of her local high school and is excited to be helping seniors with scholarships and college admissions. The Casey clan loves living on Cape Cod near family and welcomes Colby friends travelling to the Cape. * Jocelyn Wooten Giangrande was honored to visit Colby in January and participate on a panel for MLK Day. She reports it was great to share her experience as a person of color at Colby. Jocelyn was recognized by the National Association of Women Business Owners as one of the top ten business women in Michigan in the “words of wisdom” category for her work with women. She’s launched a Career Academy for Women that provides professional development and coaching. The academy has hosted more than 10 workshops and boot camps. Jocelyn’s son is in his third year at Michigan State studying chemistry. Jocelyn and husband Nick celebrated their 21st anniversary in Michigan’s wine country. * Katie Maloney touched base from Carrabassett Valley at Sugarloaf. Katie and husband Tom Chaimovich settled there five years ago deciding, “it’s never too late to be a ski bum!” During winter Katie runs the Sugarloaf child care center and sees many Colby alums. Her primary focus, however, is the pet portrait business she created making oil-on-canvas paintings of pets. See her work at divapainting.com and on Facebook at Katie’s Pet Portraits. * Jenny Spencer Lyons is the mother of a 12-year-old son and lives in Cornwall, Vt., her home state, managing sales, marketing, and events at the Vermont Book Shop, a strong, independent bookstore that’s a long-established (since 1949) cornerstone of the Middlebury community. * Steff Rocknak and Leah Basbanes and Grace Jeannes ’96 had a great time in Aspen and Snowmass during their annual ski trip. Leah continues to run her wetland consulting business and volunteers with the Dunstable Rural Land Trust and other conservation groups. Leah’s wife, Grace Jeannes, is still at Raytheon and serves as president of the Lowell Humane Society. Leah enjoys volunteer service trips with the Sierra Club working on projects such as building trails in Denali, Alaska, and Red River Gorge, Ky. Her newest hobby is blacksmithing. * John Davie and Harold Rider visited Wyoming last winter and met up with Jonathan Selkowitz. John says Jonathan is a local celebrity in Jackson Hole but just as nice as in the ’80s! Hanging out with him there is like a backstage pass to your favorite band. In addition to skiing Jackson Hole, John and Harold joined Jonathan and some clients for some backcountry escapades on Mt. Glory. Winter storm Juno complicated John’s travels home but provided a short visit to Harold and Kirsten Geiger Rider’s home outside Chicago while the East Coast dug out. John gives the accommodations at the Rider’s five stars and looks forward to being stranded there again. * Kristin (Hock ’90) and John Davie’s girls, Carson and Merritt, teach skiing at Stratton Mountain in Vermont during the winter weekends. Both girls grew up in the freestyle program at the mountain and now enjoy being on the teaching side. * Rob Koff spent time in Vail last March with Peter O’Toole ’89 and Kent Fikrig. Rob also caught up with Tim Wisseman and his wife, who stayed with Rob and wife Dawn en route to visit Tim’s parents. * Hope Worden Kenefick suggests a prompt to encourage more classmates to contribute to this column. Hope would love to hear classmate’s current pursuits that they hadn’t anticipated at graduation. Hope says that she didn’t anticipate owning a public consulting firm, painting pet portraits on commission, and owning an impressive collection of power tools used frequently in her DIY projects. Okay, have at it—I hope to hear from some of the more bashful among you!
