Class Notes 1982

Deb Sanders-Dame of Monroe, N.H., was made lead teacher this year in grades 4 to 12. She was also nominated to be the Region I representative to the National Association of Student Councils.


1983

Donald Nicholson has been named director of development at Wilbraham & Monson Academy (WMA) in Wilbraham, Mass. Don completed a postgraduate year at Wilbraham & Monson in 1979. After graduating from KSC, he earned a master's degree at American International College. At WMA, he taught history, coached soccer, swimming, lacrosse, and basketball, and was a dormitory parent for 20 years.


1984

IN MEMORIAM: Kelly Conway de Aguilera '84 died in Keene, N.H. She lived in Spain for 10 years and returned to Keene, where she worked for Step By Step and taught English as a second language.


1985

From Tracy Smithers Davis: "I resigned from teaching last spring due to the progression of my spinal muscular atrophy. I translate documents and flyers and do phone consultations from home. I miss teaching so much, but my students, as well as colleagues, keep in touch with me (hint, hint to KSC friends!). Any KSC alums who live in Arizona and are interested in putting together a reunion, please feel free to contact me by phone, 520-568-4252, or email at: gata@direcway.com. I'd love to hear from you. I'm planning a trip home this summer, and hopefully I'll get over to KSC! I hear that there are many changes to the campus and I want to give a tour of my alma mater to my children."


1987

Lisa Corrette Livingstone and husband Paul had a baby girl, Jennifer Lisa Livingstone, on Jan. 28, 2004. Jennifer weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz., and mother and baby were doing great. They even arrived home in time to catch the Super Bowl, according to dad.

From Lisa: Todd and Karen Sekelsky Ager had their third child on March 1, 2004. Todd says, "Stephanie and Mom are doing well. Greetings, Kappa Delta Phi brothers. MTSND. I can be reached at lanman@sover.net."


1988

From Jeff: "May is upon us as I write these notes to you, and you'll notice from the address above this column that I've moved yet again! My new digs in Los Angeles are not the only things new, however. I have recently (as of April 1, 2004) accepted the position of associate director of development at the University of Southern California Law School. I know my last column (winter 2004) mentioned how much I was enjoying my position at Pomona College in Claremont - and that was certainly true. Change was in the air, however, and I have never been one to pass up good opportunities when they come along - particularly those where career advancement are concerned.

This move signals the achievement of another goal I have held since moving to California back in August of 2000 of living closer to L.A. Well, now, I'm in the thick of things! I found a terrific apartment in the Los Feliz section, right across from Griffith Park. The great outdoors are just a stone's throw from my apartment, and places like Hollywood, Pasadena, Glendale, and Silverlake are all within a 15-minute drive.

Being in the city means I also get to refocus some of my energies on serious plans for developing the Southern California alumni community. There are lots of us here in the greater L.A. (and Orange County) areas, so don't be surprised if you soon start seeing invitations to come out and party with us for some KSC-style networking and reminiscing.

I wish I had news to share from classmates, however, I think my move and change of my e-mail address may have hampered communications for a bit. I'm back in touch now, so keep the fan mail coming, and remember - no autographs please! All good things!"

From Rick Forgeron: "I am better known to those who knew me during my days at Keene State as 'Forgie.' I own a landscape business in Chatham on Cape Cod (where I grew up) with my wife, Susan, and our children, Kyle, 10, Lyndsi, 9, and Evan, 7. I recently became a representative for a company called Sonmedia Online, a new Internet service provider whose mission is to protect children and families while they are surfing the Internet and keep the experience both enjoyable and educational. You can e-mail me at kidsfirst@sonmedia.com."


1989

Kathryn E. Graf of Titusville, Fla., was looking for Kathy Ewen, Amy Chapman, Pam Bernazani, and Chris Demers at reunion this year. "Who else from the class of 1989 was there?" she asks.
