Judy Katz Esbit’s family continues to explore and enjoy the “tranquil” and rustic life of Tucson, AZ. “Everyday life with the boys in elementary school, their extracurricular activities, hiking on the weekends, and just relaxing fills our world!” Scott is busy helping people to hear better, and Judy enjoys being his patient-care coordinator. She has also established a side business, doing supplement demos in the neighborhood health-food stores. She welcomes classmates to stop by when in the area; her e-mail is email@example.com.
In 2006 Ellen Sprouls became executive director of the Michigan Maritime Museum in South Haven. Each summer she spends two luxurious weeks teaching at Ox-Bow, an affiliate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago located in Saugatuck, MI. She lives with her cat Gracie.
Kate Sullivan Scovil and family live in Wisconsin, just north of Milwaukee. While en route to Boston and Vermont last August, Kate and crew had dinner with Lorna Stokes and her family. Lorna lent a wonderful eventing horse to the Scovils’ 15-year-old daughter, Lexi, for the summer. She had a blast galloping around training-level courses and qualified for Nationals. Kate’s eldest, Megan, was accepted to Skidmore but chose Santa Clara University in California for the weather. (Kate suggests that Skidmore rethink having alumni children look at the college in February of their junior year!) Youngest child Emmett is deciding on high schools for next year.
Dana Paul Klepper works in sales for strategic consulting firm Symphony Services, a California-based company that recently acquired her former employer, Optimal Engineering. Most of her time is spent on the phone and e-mail, or visiting clients in Boston and New Hampshire. Her flexible schedule allows time to play in a tennis league and take lessons, and to cart son Eric, 15, to music lessons and gigs (he is the bassist for a local band), which she really enjoys. Daughter Sarah loves life in DC and especially appreciates the international student body at George Washington University, where she is a sophomore.

Anna is also in touch with fellow alums Gerry Kiep Sangiacomo, Kitty Fitzpatrick Hickey, Dawn Kennard Beaver, and Linda Perani Waterbury ’80.
Nina Hasner Yoder, husband Merle, and their three children took an annual ski trip to Vail, CO, over Christmas. At Reunion last May, Nina enjoyed seeing lots of faces she hadn’t seen in a long time, especially nursing friends Barbara Wyszynski LaFrance, Sue Flood VonHeill, Lisa Fairchild Heist, and Nancy Legvold Rubbico. Nina is VP of the parents association at Convent of the Sacred Heart, which eighth-grader Kate and tenth-grader Elyse attend. Son Erik is a senior at Brooks School in North Andover, MA.
