Amanda Earp Hayes
Hello, Class of 2007! It’s wonderful to think that we just celebrated our tenth reunion, and I hope those who were able to attend had a fantastic time connecting with former classmates and friends. There is news to report, so let’s get to it: Charis Loomer Beavers is a teacher in Frederick County, where she has just started her eleventh year and is piloting the first full-day Pre-K in the county. She lives in downtown Frederick with her husband, Jimmy (a salesman throughout the Baltimore/DC region), as well as her three-year-old daughter and sixteen-month-old son. Stephanie Cowen Eisenberg has relocated to FL to work as a Senior Producer for FOX 35 Orlando. She has a little girl who will turn two in July, and who she hopes will one day be a Hoodlum like the rest of us! Amanda Earp Hayes’s first nonfiction book, Shattered: Memoirs of an Amnesiac was picked up by a publisher and released September 12 as a #1 bestseller under her pen name, A.E. Hayes. She is now working on a highly-requested sequel to the memoir, as well as writing for a YA anthology, a supernatural/horror anthology, and preparing to publish a book about a coffee shop that takes place in St. Michaels, MD. When not writing, Amanda is busy with her six-year-old son, her husband (a Senior Infrastructure and Database Consultant for a major educational company in Columbia, MD), their three Battlestar Galactica-named cats, and frequent visits to St. Michaels to enjoy the slower pace of life. Collin Kenny teaches fifth and sixth grade at Frederick Classical Charter School, where he has his students mummify chicken legs and assess whether the Mongols were civilized or barbarous. He still writes music for the guitar, which his students often sing in history songs. Collin also leads the praise team at Faith Church PCA, and plays mandolin in the Singing Stones Gospel band once a month at the Frederick Church of the Brethren. He resides in Frederick with his wife and daughter. Natalie McVeigh is excited to be in the Greater Boston Area again. She married Jessica Carsten in June 2016 in Denver, where they previously resided. After more than seven years, Natalie left her own family enterprising advising and coaching firm in May 2017 to join the Private Bank of Wells Fargo as a Vice President, Family Dynamics Consultant. In 2016, she had the honor of being recognized in her field of Family Business Advising by being selected as Faculty of the Family Firm Institute.
