Thanks to those who sent in news. I’m happy to report that in August I accepted a position in Boston College’s annual fund office, so I have finally (only three years later…) made my way off of the Hill. It was certainly bittersweet, but it’s great to be surrounded by so many Colby alums in Boston. * Other classmates are doing equally exciting things. Katie Harris finished her master’s in secondary education at Boston College as a member of the Donovan Urban Teaching Cohort and started a new job as a seventh grade science teacher at Prospect Hill Academy this fall. * Jamie Luckenbill and Valerie Coit were married July 30 in Portland, Ore. Jessica Coliflores, Erica Kreuter, Christa Miller-Shelley, Taylor Kilian, Sam Reid, and Andrew Kabatznick were in the wedding party. * Anna Birnberg lives in Chicago and finished her master’s in secondary education last spring at DePaul. This fall she moved to Jaen, Spain, to teach English for the school year. * In July Stacey Dubois started an M.F.A. program in writing for children and young adults at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. * Karina Carley began biking across the country from Oregon to Maine in June and finished Aug. 8! * After three years with Ogilvy & Mather in San Francisco and Chicago, Melyn Heckleman McKay was given a Global Health Corps fellowship. The fellowship will take her to Kigutu, Burundi, for a year to work for Village Health Works, a rural community clinic. * Courtney Larson and Jeff Carroll recently got engaged while hiking in New Hampshire. Courtney works as a GIS analyst for the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and is applying to grad school. Jeff completed his first year of the master’s of forest science program at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The wedding is planned for July 2012 in Minneapolis. * Bryan Solar and Alex Russell live in Boston, where they’re partnering with the City of Boston on their nonprofit Main Street Partners, which pairs smart young professional volunteers with struggling urban businesses owners. Cadran Cowansage and Mike King volunteer their expertise to handle all the new growth. * Ed Fox Davis moved to NYC, where he started a new job in project finance with First Solar. He’s crashing with Austin Nicholas ’09 and Brett Guenther ’09. * Steve Frechette, Christina Feng, and Carolyn Potz ’04 returned from their FirstClicks (www.firstclicks.org) trip to Thailand, where they implemented a computer literacy program. The trip was amazing, they said, and included speaking with kids about career goals and computers, working with two local teachers on a curriculum, touring the local school, and helping set up a wireless network for the classes. * Darcy Taylor was recently promoted to junior analyst on the Starbucks account at TracyLocke in Wilton, Conn. * Christina Evriviades and Nicholas Cade are thrilled to announce their engagement. They look forward to celebrating their New England wedding next year surrounded by Colby friends and family. * Julia Stuebing completed her Fulbright Fellowship in Israel and began law school at the University of Michigan this fall. In August she joined Laura Perille, Sarah E. Clark, Lucas LaViolet, Tom Treat, Brian Putnam, Jennifer Bushee, William Whitledge, and others for a much-anticipated reunion in Estes Park, Colo. * Thanks for the updates!
