From Karen: "Hey, everyone, happy spring! Speaking of seasons, I spent the N.H. Primary Season working in Manchester for CNN. We took an empty mill building space and transformed it into a beautiful, fully functioning television broadcast center. It was definitely an exciting time to be in the media, and I had the pleasure of meeting numerous candidates and CNN newscasters.

Don't forget reunion weekend at KSC. Hopefully we can all converge on campus this year! If you can't be there, send in your news to any of the secretaries listed. We'd love to hear from you! I had lunch in December with Robin Jones Steward '92; she and her husband are doing well in their new home, with their four-year-old daughter, Riley. I'd love to hear from any of the old crew, like Mike Blodgett, Mike Scarpato, Brad Nelson, Dave Meischner, Judy Petty, Cindy Ray, Andy Mills, and of course, the motley crew from the Equinox/KNH hallway in Elliot!"
