Amanda Watters
works in Boston, very near
the scene of the bombings at the end of the
marathon, and was involved in “Onerun,” during
which runners later ran the last mile of the Boston
Marathon. The four lead runners were carrying
flags to honor the four people who were killed in
conjunction with that incident. One of the four
runners was Amanda; she was carrying the flag in
memory of Crystal Campbell. You may have seen
the image on the major networks or BBC.

It’s all baby boy news for this edition of the class
notes!
Molly Shubert Hann
and Stephen Hann
’97
welcomed Henry Shubert Hann into the world
on June 3, 2013, at 5:01 p.m. in Saranac Lake,
N.Y. Molly writes, “Labor began slowly while we
were in Canton on Saturday, June 1, attending
the beer-tasting (Dad tasted the beer) and class
dinners for our 15th and 10th reunions. Perhaps
it was the visit to the KDS cold dorm or the trip
to the Outhouse Swamp that prompted Henry's
arrival. Grandmother Mimi, Mary Munro Shubert
'76,
is thrilled with her first grandson. We are
hopeful that Henry will follow in our footsteps in
the Class of 2035.”
Just three days later, June 6,
Sarah Kreiner ’03
and Gary Godshaw ’02 welcomed a baby boy,
also their first, Edward Michael. Congratulations
all around!

Ashwati Parameshwar
married Jaideep Bha-
tia on January 5, 2013, in Bangalore, India. Four
alumnae,
Abigail MacBain
,
Christina Farnsworth
’05,
Jenny Angell ’05 and Megan Roppolo ’05,
traveled to visit and celebrate her multi-day, ab-
solutely enormous wedding extravaganza! Most
of the women were in the Laurentian Singers
together, so they spent much time reminiscing
about tours and old repertoire. At the end of the
night, after the wedding, they even sang all the
school songs together! Congratulations, Ashwati
and Jaideep!
After graduating, Abigail lived in Japan for two
years as a Japan Exchange & Teaching (JET) Pro-
gram participant. She then received her master’s
degree in religious studies with a focus on East
Asian religions fromMcMaster University. For the

Best of luck, Abby!

ceived his doctorate in foreign affairs from the
University of Virginia. He was awarded the Ken-
neth N.Waltz Prize for best dissertation in the field
of international security by the American Political

By launching a very exciting and impressive so-
cial media campaign,
Lisa Francesca Gallo
ex-
ceeded her funding goal on Kickstarter.com and
spent the summer living her dream: She traveled
to Italy to direct
Infreschi
,
a film and screenplay
she wrote. Lisa received a master’s degree in
screenwriting from Chapman University. Be sure
to check out I
nfreschi
once it hits the big screen!
For the second time in two years, Boston Bruin
Rich Peverley
reached the Stanley Cup Finals.
This year he faced Brandon Bollig '12n and the
Chicago Blackhawks, who ended up winning the
Cup in dramatic fashion. Rich scored two goals
in the playoffs, including one in the finals. In an
article published in the Boston
Herald
,
Rich re-
vealed that he still resorts to a lesson St. Lawrence
men's ice hockey assistant coach Chris Wells '92
gave him years ago, during a scoring slump. Wells
lined up dozens of pucks in front of an empty net
and told Rich to shoot them as hard as he could.
The lesson? "If you put the puck in the net more,
maybe you think you'll do it in a game." Rich was
traded to the Dallas Stars after the season.

This is a joyous time for many classmates, with a
multitude of baby announcements – especially of
births on April 10, it seems.
Kimberly Kernan
,
living in the D.C. area with
Clarkson husband Rob Reid, said their baby boy,
Henry Kernan Reid, was born on April 10. “We
made the most of the warm D.C. spring weather
while I was on maternity leave,”she reported.
Former D.C.-area residents
Noah
and
Jean
Walker Plotkin
also had a baby on April 10. The
couple, now living in Denver, welcomed Meredith
Leigh to the world. “We’d love her to attend SLU
one day,” Jean said. They sent a photo of their
baby girl wearing a SLU bib that Katie Stoller Lud-
wig ’06 sent them as a present. Noah got a new
job in December at the Veterans Administration,
as a social worker, helping homeless veterans find
housing, he said.
Doug Smith
also sent in a photo of his and
Amanda Church ’04’s daughter, Aubrey Barbara,
born February 3.“Born to go to SLU,”he said, refer-
ring to a onesie the babywaswearing in the photo.
To see both pictures, turn to“Future Laurentians.”
Kristen Ross DeWilde
wrote in from Afghani-
stan,“I will deploy to Kandahar in September with
my Airlift Squadron, for six months. I haven't run
into any St. Lawrence grads, but I'm sure inmy six-
month visit someone will come through,”she said.
I met up with
Lindsay Farrar, Chinasa Izeogu
and Chinasa’s husband, Eric Seyse ’06, for a Tri-
City Valley Cats baseball game at the end of June.
Lindsay has been doing a lot of training for her
counseling job at Equinox in Albany. And Chinasa
