Gretchen Hoffecker Knowles retired from psychiatric nursing several years ago. She enjoys having the time for quilting and finds herself returning to childhood pleasures such as kayaking, horseback riding, and biking.

Ann Ramsay-Jenkins is director of the former Washington Education Foundation, recently renamed the College Success Foundation. The six-year-old organization provides college scholarships and mentoring to low-income, high-potential students, helping 3,700 students enter college and more than 700 complete baccalaureate degrees. In January the foundation started a new initiative in Washington, DC.

Since retiring from teaching in 2006, Frances Srulowitz has “hit the road.” In December she visited Vietnam and Cambodia, then took an art tour in Mexico in February. In between trips she volunteers two days a week at her former school, recommending books to third-, fourth-, and fifth-graders—which, she says, is “the part of teaching I love best.”

Christine Neville heads the Academy for Gifted Children in the greater Cincinnati area. A grand-opening celebration of the school’s seventh anniversary was held in August. The academy was recently ranked the third-best private high school in the tri-state area.

Susan Tucker Wortman lives in Philadelphia, PA, with her adopted daughter Monah, 16, who attends the Milton Hershey School. Susan met Monah six years ago through a mentoring program.

Retired after 40 years of running her interior-design business, Randi Reeve Filoon is enjoying her new-found freedom. She and husband Fred, who have three grandchildren, moved to Boston this October but continue to spend half the year in Sun Valley, ID.
