Greetings Class of ’99! I trust you’re all doing well and staying busy! Alison Gregg Dowd continues to work at the Memphis Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where she has been a Staff Psychologist since 2012. Last February, however, she transferred to a new position within the Center as Triage/Consult Coordinator for Mental Health Service and loves it. In addition, she has twice accompanied medical teams providing services to Haiti to provide services to St Vincent’s School for Handicapped Children in Port au Prince. In 2016, she was appointed Cathedral Sacristan at her church, and also serves on the vestry. As if all that isn’t enough, Alison is also trying to remodel her home (even if it is slow going!), and somehow still makes time for fun fishing outings. And for some exciting family news from Sherie Love — Brant Kenny and Sherie were married October 24, 2015 in Hershey, PA. In attendance were fellow alums Tricia Muir ’00, Jamie Hentz White ’99, Melanie Jacobs Srivisal ’99, Erin McNulty ’99, Stephanie Mellinger ’99, and Laura Schultz ’99. A little over a year later, she and Brant welcomed their first child, a son named Maxwell, on December 16, 2016. Congrats Sherie! My family and I attended the Hood Homecoming festivities this past fall; it is always great to be back on campus, to talk with the current students, to reconnect with other alums, and to watch my own kids enjoy activities on the quad and to cheer on the Blazers on the field!
