Deciding to make a change after five years of teaching Montessori in New Preston, Conn., Carol Majdalany Williams now works for ZAANHA, a company that works to put Afghanistan girls in school through the sale of its high-end cashmere products and embroidered pillow covers from all over Central Asia. Carol is excited to work on this project and hopes to travel to some very interesting places. * In 2002 Mike Wolk, his wife, and daughter rode recumbent bikes as part of RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Race Across Iowa), an annual seven-day bicycle ride. In years since, Mike has won the state time trial championships in his age group, climbed Mt. Mitchell, and has ridden all around NYC on a fixed gear, on the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia, down the main drag in Haight-Ashbury, and climbed Lombard Street, among other exploits. * Charlie LeRoyer decided to retire after 32 years as a physician’s assistant. That lasted for all of three weeks! Now he works two days a week at the VA hospital in Augusta, Maine, and loves his five-day weekends. Charlie looks forward to plenty of free time for travel, winemaking, golf, hiking, and the all the other fun stuff! * Jeff Frankel still lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., where he’s the chief learning officer for Massage Envy. His son, 25, attends graduate school in Los Angeles; his daughter is in high school. * Life in Nashville has been fun and challenging for Rick Drake. His wife commutes for two weeks at a time to Hartford, Conn., where she works in anesthesia at Hartford Hospital, as anesthesia jobs in Nashville are scarce. Rick is quickly accumulating frequent flyer miles in his role as head of business development for the nation’s seventh-largest hospital consulting firm and largest manager of hospitals. He is closing in on his bucket-list goal of hitting all 50 states. Just Mississippi and North Dakota left! His older son is finishing graduate school in Chicago in advertising and does well as a standup comic. His younger son is an engineer, designing new fighter jet engines in the Northeast. Rick still plays hockey and is playing in an “old guys” national tourney in Florida in April. * Annie Holloway Stone experienced some very uplifting life changes recently. After leaving Colby, she worked a myriad of jobs and developed a love of whitewater canoeing and kayaking. She spent years of paddling big water in West Virginia and North Carolina, easily accessed as a resident of Cashiers, N.C., in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. Sadly, a period of morbid obesity changed everything and lasted for 20 years. Temporarily living now in Baton Rouge caring for her 93-year-old mother, city life has been quite a change from the North Carolina mountains. However, she quickly noticed the incredible medical facilities there and began researching “bariatric surgery.” Last year after undergoing a “sleeve gasterectomy” and losing 160 pounds, Annie has a new lifestyle locked in and is set to retain a weight equal to, or perhaps less than, her Colby days. Grateful that her prayers were answered to be restored to her former self, and thankful for getting back a life she never thought she would live again, Annie has emerged from hibernation to say hello!
