It seems like this year is flying by as we head into the summer filled with graduations and exciting plans. Over the past few months, I’ve had an opportunity to catch up with a couple of Hood classmates. In March, we met up with Ambreen Yamin Aziz ’89 and her kids for a quick visit at Downtown Disney at Disneyland in CA. The day was filled with lots of jokes, laughter and a few eye rolls from the kids as we talked about our days at Hood.
Over Spring Break, my daughter and I traveled to Florida and had a great time hanging out with my Hood roommate Donna Parenti Dietrich ’88 and her beautiful daughter Laine. Although we hadn’t seen each other in over 10 years, it was if hardly any time had passed and the bonds are stronger than ever. We went to the beach, took in the sights in Ft. Lauderdale and just had a wonderful time catching up.
Congratulations to Lisa Buss Evans ’90 and her daughter Maya who will be heading off to the University of South Carolina this fall. I met Lisa our very first day of Hood, so I’m feeling very sentimental about Maya starting college as it seems like just yesterday that we were at Hood. Well, maybe not yesterday but definitely not that long ago.
Visiting with these dear friends the past few months, reminds me that the bonds that we form at Hood are strong and life long. If you have any news that you would like to share with the class, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on Facebook. Have a wonderful summer!
