Maggie Rooney, Molly Lucas, and Eva Lauer ran the NYC Marathon together Nov. 6 as a part of Team for Kids. * Joseph Whitfield lives in Arkansas where he “enjoys teaching and running through the sixth with my woes (read sixth-grade students).” * Zach Eslami moved to the big city (NYC) and started working as an offering manager for IBM Watson. He also volunteers at Citizens’ Climate Lobby and the NY League of Conservation Voters, two organizations focused on expanding renewable energy and diminishing fossil fuel emissions. Zach looks forward to finding time to ski this winter. * Melissa Preziosi and Andy Clevenger got engaged last August at Yosemite National Park and plan an intimate wedding sometime in the next two years. They hope their close Colby friends will join them for a mini reunion. * Meg Hassey teaches second grade at a charter school in Boston and is finishing her master’s in teaching. * Matt Lipman moved home to NYC last November after working on Songbird Farm in Unity, Maine. Since then, he started bartending at Alphabet City Beer Co., a craft beer bar in the East Village, and at Transmitter Brewing. In June Matt was promoted to general manager of Alphabet City, which was recently named “Most Loved Bar in New York” by Time Out. To give some perspective, Matt’s passion for beer began while home brewing with Christopher Abbott their sophomore year at Colby. Matt explains, “In some ways I owe it to Colby and my friendship with Christopher for pushing me in this direction.” * Molly Nash still lives in Jackson, Wyo., where she teaches third grade at The Journeys School. In December Maddie Johnson and Katrina Belle graciously hosted nearly 20 local Mules (Classes of ’12-’16) at their home in Jackson for an unofficial alumni event. Katrina’s proud to say that she finally has a real job doing custom woodworking, and, of course, skiing a whole lot on the side.
