1. 1990: Summer 2015


    Jennifer Portmann Riberdy

    Hello all… Someone more savvy should really take over as class reporter; I did find a post from classmate Melissa White Johnson. Sorry, Melissa. That was about a year ago, so by my calculations, this coming May should be her 15th wedding anniversary to husband Charles. It should also make her children, Neil and Claire, 13 and 12 respectively. They live in Perry Hall, Md., and while Melissa keeps in touch with some classmates through Facebook, she’d love to connect with parents who have children with dyslexia or language-based learning differences. Her sister Heather Joan White Tardel ’91 has moved from the Chicago area to the San Francisco Bay area with her family. As for the Reunion, I can’t really believe this year marks 25 years since we graduated from Hood (almost 30 since we entered!). Unfortunately, I had a family wedding to attend, but I hope many of you were able to make it. The 20th was fun!! As for me, I’m still living in the Rocky Mountains with my husband, three girls, two old dogs and various other small pets. During the reunion weekend, I was visiting with my sister and her three boys, lots of cousins, aunts and uncles, and a grammy or two. So, I was celebrating something different with family, but I thought of all of you celebrating with friends at Hood!! I hope you had fun!!

  2. Where are you 1990ers??


    Hello all… This class news update is going to be very short because I haven’t heard from ANY of you!! I’ve kept in touch with a few Hoodies personally, but i’ve got NO class news to share… Come on, those of us that read the magazine want to hear something from our old classmates!!  I’m setting a challenge… can at least five classmates please send me some news for our next update!? please!? In the meantime, I’m sure you’re all as busy as I am, so have a peaceful and blessed holiday season. All the best to you wherever you are… remember to look me up if you come to the high country of Colorado!!
