An Engaging Moment
Chris Reynolds ’10 writes of his engagement to Jackie Vehlies ’10: “We want to share our engagement, which actually took place right next to Brickyard Pond by the Redfern Arts Center on Saturday, April 5. Jackie and I met in Pondside 1 our freshman year (2006) and started dating a few weeks later. We have been together ever since. For the proposal I asked the student organization Chock Full o' Notes to be part of a flash mob serenade of our song, “Faithfully” by Journey. And they did so graciously and amazingly.” Watch the video.
