It’s great to hear from classmates who haven’t written before. Jim Nelson has been working as the assistant principal at Honeoye Falls–Lima High School (just south of Rochester, N.Y.) for the past 21 years. He married the love of his life, Karen, in 2009. Karen is a special ed teacher working primarily with autistic kids. Together they have five kids between the ages of 20 and 24(!). Jim’s son, Greg, will graduate this May from Nazareth College in Pittsford, N.Y., and his daughter, Rachel, is a junior at the University of Michigan. Stepchildren Holly, Jack, and Anna are all in college in the Rochester area. Five tuitions—ouch! Jim stays in touch with other Lambda Chi’s through their annual golf outing and remains in close contact with Steve Pfaff ’81 and Darlene Howland ’81, Bill and Mary Lou Eckland Jackson, and Jay ’81 and Lisa Sukeforth Donegan ’84. * Ken Thomas works for the U.S. Congress, where he advises senators, members, and staff on issues of constitutional law. As an attorney for the Congressional Research Service, a legislative branch agency, he is lead author of the recently published Constitution of the United States: Analysis and Interpretation. Ken lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife, Annie, and his two children, Alex and Ryan. * Sonia Turcotte Fois’s son, Andrew, is a freshman music composition major at NYU’s Steinhardt School. * Tamara Hannah is now affiliated with ONE Sotheby’s in Miami Beach, if anyone wants to buy property in South Florida. She recently closed $13 million of commercial property in Chicago and Miami and is glad to be out of the arctic freeze! * Judy Alexander Medlin is education coordinator at Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory in Salisbury Cove, Maine. She reports that many Colby students come to MDIBL for research fellowships in the summer and for neuroscience courses in January. * On a sad note, Kitty Weyl Dove reported that Suze Connolly Levere’s father passed away last summer. Kitty, Lisa McDonough O’Neill, and Sarah Stiles Bright all attended the service. Mr. Connolly was commodore of the Eastern Yacht Club, uncle of Janet Santry Houser ’78, and a great old salt who hosted many a Colby kid at his home and on his boat. * Just yesterday I got a call from Fred Madeira, Elliott Pratt, Scott Butterfield, and Chris Perrin, who were all at Lawrie Foster’s ski house in Bethel, Maine. They wanted to be sure to report that Scott “the straw that stirs the drink” Butterfield will definitely be in attendance at our 35th in 2015.
