We are so excited to present to you the first Newsletter of our new Newsletter Editors Dan Studnicky and Shelley Nadel. They have worked tirelessly to pull together this Newsletter – filled with interviews, pictures and updates on all things Class of ’85. We are confident that you will enjoy this Newsletter and want to join us in thanking Dan and Shelley for pulling it together.

Some highlights of the Newsletter include a review of why those in our Class serve in their communities in so many different/inspiring ways, in-depth interviews with 3 classmates: College Trustee Sue Finegan, Annette Hatch-Clein, as well as newly appointed Chaplain and Director of the William Tucker Center for Spiritual and Ethical Life at Dartmouth Reverend Nancy Vogele, and an overview of our newest and exciting Class Project: Bridges to Health Profession Fund (this is a new initiative developed by our Class Project Officers Veronica Jenkins, Linda Blockus and Pamela Ponce Johnson, now being overseen by Veronica and Linda, with a mission to increase graduate school admissions in the health professions for low-income Dartmouth students).

You’ll also find updates about Terri Sergeskettter Heath, Shelley Leavitt Nadel, Brad Pagliaro, Beth Hobbs, Linda Blockus, Jennifer Gabler, and Kim Booker Schmid.
