Stephen Zaharias started his final semester at UNH School of Law. He’ll intern with a justice on the First Circuit Court of Appeals, and upon graduation in May will be admitted to the New Hampshire bar due to his participation in the Daniel Webster Honor program. He anticipates sitting for the Massachusetts bar after graduation. * Toni Tsvetanova is in her second year at Harvard Law School, where last semester her foreign direct investment moot court team won an international competition in Germany. She went to Japan for independent research on how Japanese culture affects the decision to litigate (or not) as part of her January term. * After Thanksgiving with family in Rhode Island, Chris Gorud visited Dan Lesser, Charlie Wulff, Jarad Doyon, Ned Nakles, Matt Westenberg, and Sammy Gradwohl in Boston’s North End.

Chris, Alicia Kreiger, Lia Engelsted, Brooke Wanlass, David Schumacher, Alex Pan, Ellen Morris, Emily Cook, John Clauson ’10, Steve Erario ’10, Hannah Smythe ’12, and Nikki Yanok ’12 gathered to celebrate Aaron Kaye and Stephen Sentoff’s birthdays. * Alexandra Desaulniers joined the staff of LaTiDo, a cabaret and spoken-word series based in D.C. and New York City, as communications and public relations manager. She continues to perform at the cabaret as well. Alexandra joined Sarah Whitfield ’09, Ray Rieling ’12, and Reiling’s mother, Sheila, to lay wreaths at the annual Wreaths Across America ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in December. The Colby Club of D.C. raised funds for the cause. * Adan Hussain started his second semester in the higher education and student affairs master’s program at Ohio State. He works as the graduate assistant in the multicultural center and will present at a regional conference this semester. * Ben Mitchell-Lewis sailed to Virgin Gorda, where he helps run a camp. * In October Laura Berzins graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University, with a master’s in international education development. She moved from New York to Jackson, Wyo., to ski before starting at Cornell Law School in the fall. * All is well on Drury Lane in Boston with Grayson Palmer stepping up in the world via a promotion to director of the annual fund at the Commonwealth School. Meanwhile Anne Geraghty said goodbye to fun employment with a job at Conventures, where she assists in event planning. Their roommate, Natasha Atkinson, stimulates brains for fun at Beth Israel and is working on her audition tape for The Bachelorette. * Last fall Zander Koallick moved to Nashville with the Joint Chiefs (Jeoff Jarnot ’10, James O’Brien ’12, Carson Brown ’13, and Hunt Hearin). They live in the same house, practice, write new songs, and work to develop a following. They’re having a blast getting to know the area. They’ve been back to New England a few times and will play in New York and Washington, D.C., this spring. * In alumni pet news, Patrick Burns got a chameleon—Chameleo Estevez—and he’s a stud. * In news from the forest, Peter Allfather led a successful yoga retreat for John Perkins, Nate Seiberling, Saikrishna Chavali, and Ben Mawhinney at the COC cabin Jan. 28 despite there being no firewood and Sai finishing his Big G’s food rations within 20 minutes of their arrival. * Just before Christmas Austin Sutherland returned home to New Hampshire after a year working near London for Unum UK. He’s now in Portland, Maine, working in finance at Unum US. He’ll go to Colby in May to see his sister graduate. * Emily Hilton is in her third year with the Peace Corps in Burkina Faso, where she works with a Burkinabé NGO to increase handicapped children’s social acceptance and access to education and medical care in rural areas. Her role is to improve systems for reporting, record keeping, and organizing data. In October she returned to the U.S. for a short visit for the first time in two years and had the chance to visit the Colby campus, which was even more beautiful than she remembered. How lucky we all were!
