Jaye Austin Williams attended Skidmore from 1974 to 1978 but did not officially graduate until 2004. She recently graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with an MFA in dramatic writing and will begin a joint PhD drama program at the University of California in Irvine and San Diego next fall. For the past 30 years, Jaye has worked as a director, playwright, and actor. She has garnered commissions, residencies, and fellowships; directed two regional premieres of Pulitzer- winning plays (Suzan-Lori Parks’s Topdog/Underdog and David Auburne’s Proof); and earned rave reviews for her solo performances. An alumna of the Lincoln Center Theatre Directors Lab, she is a member of the New York Theatre Workshop. She has been a visiting faculty member at Middlebury College and Gallaudet University—where she directed Parks’s In the Blood and Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls…. Although she is technically a member of Skidmore’s Class of 2004, she will always be a member of the Class of ’78 in her heart.
Karen Rigopolous went to the home of Wendy Coleman Hilboldt and her husband for a pre-Reunion get-together. They had a wonderful time reconnecting with many classmates. Karen hopes to see those who couldn’t make it to Saratoga this time for the 35th!
