While my life (Heidi) has settled into running after a toddler and panicking about the classes I haven’t yet prepped for the following day, I’m glad to hear from our classmates who are (a) experiencing the same life craziness and/or (b) have more interesting things to share. So without further ado….Eliza Adams is starting her 11th year of teaching at the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore where she has been continuing her love of teaching Preschool. In her spare time at school, Eliza also tutors Middle Schoolers and participates in various committees on campus. Eliza is enjoying the city life in Baltimore and lives in historic Mt Vernon, surrounded by arts and culture. Since graduating from Hood in 2001, Eliza has continued her passion for singing. Eliza sings with the choir “Bach in Baltimore” where she is the section leader of the sopranos. Eliza enjoys singing Bach pieces in her choir but has also sung pieces composed by Mozart, Verdi, Brahms, and Rachmaninoff. Eliza recently went to a luncheon hosted by hoodlum Stephanie Mellinger ‘99 where she saw fellow hoodlums Jamie Hentz White ‘99, Melanie Jacobs ‘99, Sherie Love ‘99, and Aimee Kaplan ‘00. Eliza has also kept in touch with Katie Janke Swann ’00 and Amber Wilson. Kudos to Laura Benson Blake who got married to Bobby Blake on August 10, 2013 in Fitchburg, MA. Hood Alum Rebecca Fishack ’03 was in attendance. Hats off to Sylvia Proctor Kilpatrick who said, “lots of great things for me.” Her twins started kindergarten, she graduated with her MBA from UMUC this past spring and received a promotion to HR Manager at her job. Congratulations to Niki McElroy and fiancé Toren Grant who recently got engaged. They’re still enjoying the “moment” before setting a date. Thanks again for keeping us posted on your respective lives whether you’re settled in or still evolving!
