Sarah Steindel Keating is VP of enrollment and marketing at Keystone College in La Plume, Pa., and an associate consultant with Noel Levitz, a firm specializing in higher education. Last July Sarah presented “Social Media: Information on a Hot Tin Roof” at a national conference. Check out the talk at noellevitz.com. Sarah spends time chasing kids Isabel, 10, and Tyler, 7. She got her Maine fix this summer and visited Dede Christensen and David Frothingham on the way. * Erik ’94 and Staci Strauss Mortenson and kids Anders and Anneliese live in Pottstown, Pa., where Erik teaches English and coaches lacrosse at Hill School. * Isabelle Gagnon Johnson lives outside D.C. with her 9-year-old son and partner Christopher. She’s CEO at a nonprofit organizing young people on climate issues, “which is a generous way of saying I can usually be found working on a spreadsheet, awarding someone a stuffed flamingo, or putting new batteries in a clock.” She’s in touch with Susan Krolicki Newmeyer, John Cully, and Lesley Frymier Cook and, through Facebook, with her cohort from Jenny Boylan’s writing classes. She remains close friends with Jenny. Isabelle plans to be at reunion and to cajole others to join. * Jeff Baron visited Colby last August with his girls (Samantha ’24 and Ali ’26). Seniors were prepping for COOT, and campus was being readied for freshmen. Jeff and family are lucky to spend much of every summer at their home on Long Pond in the Belgrades, occasionally sneaking to Big G’s and North Street Dairy Cone. Jeff stays in touch with Bill “Vanilli” Miller. * Sarah Burditt McDougall works from home in Bend, Ore., as an IT program manager. She enjoys Bend’s outdoor activities including walking, cycling, kayaking, volunteering, and microbrewery decks. She’s in touch with Colby folks on Facebook. “Sometimes it amazes me how much technology has changed since we graduated 19 years ago,” she writes. “I don’t anticipate making reunion 2013, but I’d love to hear from old friends I’m not in touch with.” * Aliza Hernandez Whittel began her 20th year teaching. Her first was in kindergarten and the last 18 were in first grade in Monroe, N.Y. Aliza’s been married for 17 years to Jim and has two children, Nicholas, a high school junior, and Christina, a seventh grader. She and Jim, master divers, have dived all over the world. * Kristin Winkler Hera and husband welcomed their first child, Anna Louisa Hera, July 31. Anna was greeted by stepbrother Cristian, 16. Kristin’s Colby roomies Beth Montgomery Rhinelander and Emilie Abair Barmashi helped host a baby shower. Kristin looks forward to a year off from teaching to be home with Anna. * Patricia Thorpe Tweedie works full-time at PrimaCare in Fall River, Mass., and teaches family practice residents at Kent Hospital in Warwick, R.I. She’s traveled to Haiti every year since the 2010 earthquake. Tish went to medical school with a Passionist priest who runs an orphanage and pediatric hospital (StLukeHaiti.org), which has expanded since the quake. During her recent trip, husband Andrew held down the fort while their girls, Caroline, 13, and Julia, 10, went to camp. * Highlights of Laurie Girard Eidt’s summer were returning to work as a physical therapist at Stamford Hospital’s Outpatient Rehab and Andrea Krasker Gavin’s surprise birthday party on Chebeague Island, Maine. The party included an extended weekend on the water and Maine lobsters. * Beth Curran Balter, our reunion gift chair, writes, “I’m looking for a few good men and women to join the committee.” She wants people to get fired up about reunion, which coincides with Colby’s bicentennial. “What better reason to make the trek—maybe desecrate that Bowdoin sign along the way for old time’s sake—and spend a weekend at our alma mater with old friends!” Get in touch with her at [email protected] if you’re interested in helping.
