Paula Kurata married Jon Kuespert on July 7 in Provence, France, and then celebrated with friends and relatives at receptions in Delaware, California, and Hawaii. Jon is a geologist in the oil and gas industry, while Paula works for Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Artist Julia Jacquette exhibited I Dreamt, a retrospective of her work over the last 12 years, at Skidmore’s Tang Museum this summer.
Pat Hadfield confesses to having a “cool job” teaching art and coaching varsity soccer at St. George’s School in Newport, RI. He has exhibited his work at solo shows held at the Newport Art Museum and Siena College. In July he spent ten days in Paris, visiting Steve Selden ’83.
Since getting an MBA in 2001, John Cunningham has been working for a small strategy consulting firm, www.mkt-edge.com; living in the Boston area; and trying to find time to sail his boat, which he keeps in Marblehead. John makes frequent trips to Europe, Asia, and Latin America to see clients. He says, “I am in touch with Davis Buckley and Greg Caruso ’84 regularly and talk to Eric Schmidt and Brian Singer every once in a while.” He spent time in Saratoga this spring, “hanging around with a few folks including Paul Dwyer ’83 and Dave Casner ’84.”
John Levinson lives in the Atlanta, GA, area, working for the past year as director of marketing and promotions for Sports Radio 680, The Fan. His wife, Ronna, is in interior design school, and Jon predicts she will appear on Extreme Home Makeover in no time! Away from the office, Jon still plays lots of tennis.
Caroline Ralph Kenlon and husband Sean live in Manhasset, NY (where they both grew up), with their four young children. Kade, 9, plays lacrosse, baseball, and soccer. Kelly, 7, is busy with soccer, baseball, and swimming. Caroline Rose, 6, is active without planned events! And Kyle, 4, enjoyed his summer-camp experience. Caroline thinks it’s pretty neat to have her children attend the same elementary school she did.
Sam Bayne’s recent “We’re moving” card featured his two adorable sons, Sammy and Drew, standing in a giant cardboard box. Sam and wife Katie continue to live in the Atlanta, GA, area.
Cindy Johnson Rogers phoned to wish me a happy 40th birthday—a milestone she reached last year. She is very happy in Rochester, NY. Beyond being mom to sports nuts John, 10, and Ashley, 8, she continues as a part-time media buyer for the Martino-Flynn ad agency. Cindy is also president of the Rochester Junior League. In April, while in Chicago at a conference, she spent time with Debbie Kotzen, who owns a voice talent agency. Cindy, whose kids are soccer players, and Debbie, former goalie on the Skidmore women’s soccer team, both have dogs with soccer star–inspired names.
Amy Scribner left her job in Los Angeles, where she spent the last year launching the Ellen DeGeneres Show and promoting its first season. The launch campaign garnered Amy a Silver Promax Award for excellence in TV marketing but also persuaded her “to take a good chunk of time off.” Amy, who is also an actor and writer, recently completed a two-month run of her two-person show, The Jay & Amy Show, and performed with her comedy troupe Slap & Tickle at the Toronto Fringe Festival. She lives happily in LA with her boyfriend.
In July my family and I had our annual visit with Jane Zoidis Quinn and family in Rehobeth Beach, DE. This is always a good time, between the Skidmore girls catching up, our Columbia University husbands getting in their golf, and the combined force of six children being wild at the beach and in the house. Jane and husband Kevin live in San Mateo, CA, where she dabbles in jewelry-making when not chasing after Dylan, 9, Anna, 8, and Tom, 5. The Quinns were looking forward to celebrating their “big four-oh” birthdays later in the summer with family and friends in the Napa Valley.
This fall will mark my fifth season as a middle-school field hockey coach at the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore. I also took the plunge last spring, dusting off my lacrosse stick (I was actually forced to buy a new one) and coaching a dozen 7- and 8-year-old girls—my daughter Maddie included—in recreational league lacrosse. Most days, however, I revert to being a mother of three, getting everyone ready for, and driving to, one activity or another.
Our 20th reunion in 2006 is not far away, so please give some serious thought to attending and getting involved, to make it a memorable event.
