FALL 2013 | ST. LAWRENCE UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
The 30
th
reunion will have a great array of activi-
ties. I told my son, who will be 13, that he will be
attending Camp Chipmunk. He told me that he
was too old for the camp. The only other option
was Camp Hoot Owl. He said parents would not
want to watch their kids at Camp Hoot Owl. I as-
sured him the parents would not mind watching
their kids! Send some updates and photos!

Julie Parker has stepped in as your new class re-
porter. The class and the University thank
Laura
Curley Pendergast
for her fine service in this
volunteer role. Her final report appears below.
Rudy Fedrizzi
wrotewith“the news fromKeene,
N.H., winner of the 2012 Pumpkin Festival Wars
for the most lit jack-o-lanterns. We have been
married nearly 28 years.Yikes!
Heidi Rinehart
,
an
obstetrician, is part of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock
Keene OB-GYN practice. We practiced obstetrics
together for many years, but for the past three
years I've changed fromclinical medicine towork-
ing on the mildly ambitious task, Vision 2020, of
helping our county become the healthiest com-
munity in the nation by the year 2020. Watch for
me on ‘Good Morning America’ or ‘The Colbert
Report’ seven years from now (when they ask to
what I attribute our community's amazing ac-
complishment, I’ll try to mention St. Lawrence).
Our oldest daughter, Julianna, is a sophomore
at UVM. Our son, Peter, is investigating potential
colleges and is looking to double-major in phys-
ics and ballet. I’ll bet Einstein couldn’t dance. Our
youngest, Ellie, is 8 and is about as happy a kid as
you can imagine, if only her parents weren’t so old
and boring.” Great update, Rudy, and yes, please
do mention St. Lawrence when you are famous!
My old pal
Jeff Barclay
writes that “Life is mov-
ing on pretty quickly here in southwest Vermont."
Jeff and Beth live in Manchester, “a great town.”
They are both busy with their school jobs, and, of
course, the multitude of three active kids' respon-
sibilities. The Barclays have seen or heard from
many skiers, including Okemo regulars
Nina Gar-
cia Cuny
and
Mike Cashel
.
Jeff was at a fantastic
gathering at the SLU-Williams men's soccer NCAA
tournament match at nearby Williams back in
November 2012. Roughly 25 former St. Lawrence
players from '80-'86 showed up.
Jenny Miller Grady
stopped by at our sum-
mer place in Maine for a great visit! Eldest
daughter Emily is by now a first-year at La-
fayette, and Julia is a high school junior. The
Gradys live in Providence, R.I. Mike works at
Brown and Jen is still working hard at Childfo-
cus, planning policy for our nation’s youth. We
had such a great time laughing about all of our
fun-loving antics at St. Lawrence.
I am still in Westport, Conn., during the school
year and in Scarborough, Maine, during the sum-
mer. Our daughter, Charlotte, is going to be 4 in
December. Our dog, Junior, is still getting around
pretty well in his wheelchair. My husband, Jim, is
busy staying retired so he can be home with Char-
lotte. It’s fun to have a child at this age, when one
is no longer interested in climbing the corporate
ladder. My only worry is that she’ll think her par-
ents are slackers, having never seen either of us
get dressed for work. Ah, the perils of having a
baby late in life!
OK, slackers, please write to Julie.

Shero Named NHL GM of the Year
Former St. Lawrence men’s hockey captain Rejean“Ray”Shero ’84 has been named the 2013 National Hockey League Gen-
eral Manager of the Year after helping the Pittsburgh Penguins to the NHL's Atlantic Division title and the number one seed
in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Shero, one of the Saints’ leading all-time point-producers, captained the 1984-85 team for the Saints and was the leading
scorer on the 1982-83 and 1983-84 teams, combining for 87 of his 135 points in those two seasons. He spent seven years
as a player agent before beginning his NHL management career as an assistant general manager with the Ottawa Senators
(1993-98)
and the Nashville Predators (1998-2006). He was named general manager of the Penguins in May of 2006. He has
guided the Penguins to two Stanley Cup Final appearances and a Cup title in 2009.
The Sheros are one of the few father-son tandems to have their names on the Stanley Cup. Ray is the son of Fred Shero, who
won back-to-back Stanley Cups as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers in 1974 and 1975.
