Notes galore this time. Let’s get to it. * Kevin Hausman finished his eighth year teaching biotechnology and physics at Algonquin Regional High School (ARHS) and finished his M.Ed. in 2012. He retired from coaching girls’ lacrosse (a skill acquired at the St. James School in Maryland) to start a unified track and field team at ARHS. His team placed second in the large school category of Massachusetts state championships. [Kevin, I’m curious: how were your javelin throwers?] Kevin also advises his school’s Best Buddies chapter, and he shares that student inclusion has become his passion. * Vince and Niki Shinneman Yarnot welcomed their third son, AJ, March 11. AJ joins brothers Eric, 9, and Gabe, 6, in keeping Niki running! Niki is taking a break from her work as a hospice social worker to try being a professional mom, PTA president, auction chair, and all around uber-volunteer. In her spare time [ha ha], she enjoys running the occasional 5K, hiking, and generally enjoying the Pacific Northwest. * Peter Bennett writes, “I moved from New Mexico to California and just bought a house in Davis, Calif. Life is good.” World-class update, Peter. Note to rest of class: That took Peter maybe 10 seconds to write. And now we know that he was living in New Mexico but is now is in California, where he bought a home in Davis. We also know that life is good for him. See how easy that was? Seriously, that was amazing, Peter. Well done. * Whitney Glockner claims to have welcomed Jasper Parry Glockner Black (JPGB) May 13. Whitney is still at Rafter, an education technology startup near San Francisco. She reports that she hasn’t seen any other Colby folks recently, which she attributes to being a parent working at a startup. * Brian ’94 and Rima Lathrop Carlson and their two kids, Anya, 6, and Estherline, 7, spent spring break in Haiti visiting the orphanage where their eldest was adopted from, working at a medical clinic, and building a greenhouse. This was their fourth trip to Haiti as a family. Rima, I can barely get my kids to Whole Foods and back—how the heck did you get them to Haiti four times? * Gregg LeBlanc writes that in March a bunch of Colby dudes spent a long weekend in Hong Kong taking in the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens tournament, henceforth AKA the Hong Kong Doghead. The group also took part in the largest Harlem Shake video ever—yeah, that’s them right under the Cathay Pacific sign (19 seconds in): www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBQlMtidA6o. Colby alumni in attendance were JoRoy Lizewski ’95, Chris Fortune ’95, Noah Wepman, Nick Lambert, Gregg LeBlanc, and David Barr ’97. * On Dec. 20 Dori Desautel Broudy and her husband, Josh, welcomed a son, Penn Bridges, into the world. Penn joins big sisters London Elizabeth, 2, and Charlie “Charlie, bo-barley, banana-fana fo-farley,” 4. They enjoy living in Avon, Conn., where Dori stays home full time. * Aaron Schlechter welcomed Abigail Chaya Jan. 25, 2011. He installed a photovoltaic array on his home in Wilton, Conn., and he continues his work as a project manager on the Staten Island Bluebelt, where he is currently finishing a $21-million infrastructure project. * Finally, a major omission from my prior notes issue: on behalf of the Class of 1996, I wish to express my most sincere condolences to the family of Todd McGovern ’97. RIP, Gov. You’re an inspiration.
