Class Notes 1990

Maureen Cicchese Musseau is a paralegal at e-Gulf Technologies in Quincy, Mass. She and her husband, Patrick, have two children, Katharine, 3, and Owen Patrick, 1.

From Denise Dudley Sandler: "My husband and I moved into a new house in Litchfield, N.H., on June 1. I'm so happy to be living back in New Hampshire. We are doing a lot of yard work and trying to get the pool up. I've lost touch with Alison and Randy LaCasse. If they are reading this, or if anyone else knows how to get in touch with them, please email me at denisesandler@hotmail.com. Thanks."

Mark Bubba Lennerton recently graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School with a master's degree in computer science. He was selected to the rank of major in the Marines and will be teaching at the Naval Academy.

Thomas Aiello, who earned his master's degree at KSC, received the New Hampshire Driver Education Teachers Association Teacher of the Year Award at the 2002 EDie Awards in June. Tom has taught in the Salem (N.H.) School District for the past 27 years. He treats all students as if they were his own children because, while they are in his driver education class, he truly believes they are.

From Pauline Cheng: "Hello, Class of 1990, especially those who are educators in America's schools. It is the end of my fourth year of teaching at Denton High School in Denton, Tex. I have become wiser and more mature in handling American teens. I've had opportunities to participate in many professional conferences and workshops at which I've learned to become a better math teacher. By God's grace, I've had opportunities to make some positive impacts on some of my students and was included in Who's Who Among America's Teachers twice. I am very grateful to the KSC community, who created a special scholarship 16 years ago so I was able to start my higher education in the U.S. I thank KSC staff who made me very welcome in KSC and provided a ‘home' for me, especially the Alumni Center staff, who allowed me to stay in their facility during the breaks. Thank you, KSC professors, for equipping me and accepting me and inspiring me. To my close friends at KSC, I am sorry for not writing for a long time. We somehow lost touch due to our busy lives. Write to me at epfcheng@verizon.net or pcheng@dentonisd.org so I can know what is going on in your lives. My family members are all in the States now. My mother passed her citizenship test recently. My sister is working on her nursing degree; my brother has been very successful in San Francisco in the computer field; my niece is a straight-A sixth grader. I have not been able to attend Reunion because my school's last day has been the day before summer Reunion. I have not had the chance to visit New England, either; however, my family is planning to visit the area within the next three years. Feel free to suggest places to visit."


1991

David and Joanne Batten Wentworth say "hi" to their classmates of '91. They were married after college and now are proud parents of three boys ages 2, 4, and 6. They live in Concord, N.H., and hope to see some of their college friends.

Marybeth Bradley and her husband Scott '90 are living in Salem, N.H., with their children, Delaney Elizabeth and Ava Marie. Marybeth is a second-grade teacher in Lawrence, Mass., and Scott is purchasing manager for an inkjet corporation. They keep in touch with Beth Igneri Pierce, Michelle Craig Camelio, Valerie Higgins Pedor, Jane Benedetto McCune, Katherine Shrenker Roman, and Paige Monroe Moody.

Jim Rollins writes, "My wife Tessa and I had a baby girl on March 9, 2002. Her name is Lauren Charlotte Rollins, and she weighed in at a petite 6 lbs. even. She is beautiful, as she looks a lot like her mother. I went back to Keene State for graduate school and received my master's in education in 1994. I have been working as a middle school counselor for the past 8 years. I can't believe we've survived out in the ‘real world' this long. I currently work at Moultonborough Academy in Moultonborough, N.H. I coach cross-country and track there, too. I would love to hear from some of my Phi Kappa Theta brothers. especially from 8/10 Madison. Jim Rollins, Box 1911, Wolfeboro, NH 03894."

From Karen Dicey: This year, though it wasn't my 10th, Reunion was extra-special. My dear friend and former roommate Robin Jones Steward '92 was able to make it for her 10th! We joined a friendly group at the renovated College Camp for a BBQ on one of the nicer spring days; checked out all the new buildings on campus; and enjoyed some ice cream while exploring downtown Keene. At the dinner/dance we enjoyed talking with Norma Walker '51, Del Langille '51, and Natalie Tisdale '33. Later that night, we found ourselves in a familiar place, hanging out in the hallway until the wee hours of the morning, reminiscing with a bunch of friends from the Class of '92. Among the group were Scott '92 and Kelly O'Connell McPherson; Scott Masson '92 and his wife Shelly '90; Kate Palacino Deck '92 with husband John and daughters Sarah and Rachel; Sarah Machado Simeone '92 with her husband Matt and son Luca; Brian Clark '92 and his girlfriend Bonnie, both up from sunny Atlanta, GA; and Tripp Hutchinson '95. I'd also like to congratulate Patty Adams Farmer '92 on her retirement from the Alumni Board: For your many years of dedicated and enthusiastic service to the Alumni and the College, thanks, Patty!

IN MEMORIAM: Kristine Sowa-LaCoste '91 died at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. She was comptroller and office manager at Waste Management in Swanzey, N.H. She married Scott LaCoste last December and the couple was living in Winchester, N.H. Kristine was a supporter of Kelly's Angels Relay for Life and an avid gardener and quilter.
