Greeting Class of 2002 and Happy New Year!
Watching the Class of 2002 Facebook page it seemed this fall was full of great things for many classmates. It was a pleasure seeing people use to page as a resource for speeches, travel and even fundraising for our alma mater! This fall was an eventful one for my family and I as we relocated from San Diego to London. We’re still getting acclimated to our new neighborhood and slightly cooler weather, but loving every moment of life here so far. If anyone is thinking of taking a European vacation be sure to look me up I’d be happy to play London tour guide! Despite our crazy move and having spotty internet access and no computer for two months I managed to get an email sent out to all of you and happily received some first time updates from a few classmates. Kim Hart lives in Baltimore City and received her MBA from Loyola University in 2008. She works in Corporate Branding & Communications for McCormick & Company. Last year she opened McCormick World of Flavors in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the Company’s first flagship retail store and continues to oversee the store from all aspects. She takes a break from all that “business” by staying active in artistic endeavors by performing in local productions, singing for special events, and dancing whenever and wherever she can find the time! Congratulations are in order for Holly Barker Haynes who married her husband Brian on August 16 in Beaufort, SC. The two are living in Cartersville, GA and Holly where Holly works for Redbox. Nuptials are also ahead for Maggie Laabs who got engaged in September and will be wed in March of 2014. I have no doubt many of her Hoodlettes will be in attendance! Finally, Debbi Berry Householder and her husband recently became homeowners when they bought their first house in Pasadena, MD. I hope everyone enjoyed a joyous holiday season with friends and family and that 2014 brings you more of the same!
