Charlotte “Bambi” Volatile-Goebel reported, “Hi Susan, I’m writing you in the middle of day 2 of freshman orientation for my daughter. Marjorie graduated from high school here in Florida in June with honors. She has also been accepted into Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) where she will start in August. Some may remember that my oldest are twins and my son, Christian also graduated from high school but in Maryland. He has plans to go to Howard Community College and get an apartment with friends to stay in the Columbia area. Christian spent some time after graduation with me in Florida and was able to find his first car. So what does a mother do but have a mother/son road trip back to Maryland! We drove his new car (2 days) from Cape Coral, FL to Columbia, Md. Nice quality time with my son. The final “graduation” that I had this June was for my youngest. Patricia is moving onto middle school next year and like all elementary school kids, this comes with mixed emotions. She is excited to take on the next challenge in school but doesn’t want to leave all of her friends and teachers from her elementary school. Patricia is also active in synchronized swimming and her team participated in their first event in Sarasota. The team participated in 3 events: team, trio, and solo. She was in the team and trio groups. The team placed 2nd for the 11-12 age group. The trio placed 5th for the 11-12 age group. The girl in the solo (not Trish) placed 7th for the 9-10 age group. It feels like there was more but I think this is enough! Hope you are doing well.” I, Susan Boebel Alis, “Finished up another academic teaching year with the close of the school year. This year marked 21 years in education. Roman and I became empty nesters last August when Mackenzie headed off to the University of Mary Washington as a freshman. We enjoyed out time together exploring Williamsburg and getting to know our state better with lots of weekend trips and time with family and friends. This summer will be spent catching up on reading, professional development and family. Classmates: It is time for me to step down as class reporter. If you are interested in taking on the volunteer position, please contact Ashley Nick Wilson ’08, C’14 at wilsona@hood.edu.”
