Hello class of 1983! Jacque Witt Lyons wrote to share the news of her daughter Bethany’s marriage this past September. Bethany married Brent Hailey of Carey, N.C., in a beautiful waterfront ceremony near the family’s home on Kent Island in Maryland. Jacque’s daughter Allison was the matron of honor and her son Jonathan was a groomsman. Jacque and her husband Ed planned to celebrate 29 years of marriage in January. Jacque works for Habitat America as a certified public accountant and human resources director. Our daughter Emily is a ninth grader in the humanities program at nearby Monacan High School. We were so excited to learn that she had made the varsity girls basketball team after attending a team camp last June. Having recuperated from her torn anterior cruciate ligament injury all last winter and spring, this was an impressive feat for her. Wouldn’t you know it though, during preseason training last August, she fell again and tore her other anterior cruciate ligament and now must sit out the season. Her coach still treats her as a team member and she attends all practices (six days a week) and all games. We are hoping she will have a better season next year! Do not forget to register for our 30th class reunion coming up in June. It will be great to reconnect with so many friends!
