I so enjoy hearing from my fellow alums – even if you don’t have any news, a “Hood hello” is always welcome! Now the news…
Rachael Miskill Brown, ‘96, ’06 and he husband, Roger, will celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary this April! Congratulations! She continues to work as a private tutor – she really enjoys seeing young people grow in their confidence and understanding. Rachael is still helping at a volunteer-run library, and one of her Goddaughter’s, Charlotte, will be volunteering there soon as part of her Duke of Edinburgh’s Award certificate. Her Mum came to the UK for Christmas this year and they spent 10 days in Wales with Roger’s Dad. She was also able to meet with Christina Eversole, ‘01, for their Grandma’s funeral February 2018.
Meika Dorsey Cowley is happy to report that she is 5 years free of breast cancer, as of December 20, 2018. Her journey with cancer began in 1994, and she will never forget the love and support with which our sisterHood (including students, administration, faculty and staff) lifted her during that time. That was the first of three battles with cancer. She is forever grateful for the blessings, and she and her husband Manus want to share their joy and light with the Hood family.
Christie Spencer Katora reports that she went back to school, earned her secondary English teaching certification in 2016, K – 12 ESL in 2017, and just graduated with her master’s of education in comprehensive special education, 7 – 12 in December 2018. Congratulations!
