Happy New Year to everyone! 2012 was a busy year and I have kept up with many of you on Facebook. I recently received this exciting email from Martha “Rainie” Allison Dasch ’89. Earlier this year, she received the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Director’s Award for Exceptional Civilian Service. Rainie was recognized for her outstanding contributions to the organization, including developing the curriculum and teaching courses related to critical thinking, analysis and writing at the Agency’s Intelligence Training Centers. Rainie has managed to make Hood a family tradition as both her son Thomas Emit Dasch Jr. ’04 and his wife Melissa Janovic Dasch ’04 attended Hood. Congratulations to Rainie and her family. If you have any news that you would like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me via Facebook.
