marketing and special-events director, she orchestrates consumer and advertiser events. She recently reconnected, after 36 years, with an old beau from her Skid - more days who attended nearby RPI. Although Jamie lives on the West Coast, they are “picking up where they left off,” accruing many air miles and having a blast. Jerry Katz looks forward to helping with Reunion. Daughter Rochelle ’12 is in Skid - more’s Shakespeare Programme in Lon - don and will be back on campus for the spring semester. A member of Parents Council, Jerry spent many months work- ing with Gail Dudack ’70 and Skidmore staff members to co-sponsor a campus “career jam and shark tank” session, where several alumni set up booths to in - teract with students about career choices (the “shark tank” model, based on a popu- lar TV show, was Jerry’s idea). Stu dents presented proposals for summer in - ternships, and two were selected by the “tank” to receive $2,500 stipends. Jerry says the event was a huge success. Last year Judy Monosson and husband Robert went to a wedding outside NYC and stopped to see Leslie Lampert. Leslie has two restaurants in Mount Kisco. Ladle of Love serves soups, salads, sandwiches, and more and sends soup and bread bas- kets anywhere in the country. The other restaurant is Café of Love, where Judy says she and Bob had the greatest meal, including fried chickpeas and mussels. Leslie is also working on a cooking show. Eileen Crowley Sullivan loves going to Reunion and has missed only one. She’s volunteered to help plan our 35th. Anestis Symeonides and family plan to


relocate from Greece, possibly to Scot - land. Daughter Alexia graduated from Cornell in May with two bachelor’s de - grees—one in art history and one in archeology with a minor in Jewish stud- ies. She spent the summer at the Sardis ex cavation, jointly sponsored by Harvard and Cornell, in Turkey. She is working on a master’s in art history at the University of Edinburgh and will start on an MLit at the University of Glasgow next year. Daughter Anastasia is a high school star at the British Campion School in Athens. With a great talent in creative writing, she’s garnering honors and plans a college major in English lit. She’s also the family’s online expert and has already burned through two laptops in three years. Anes - tis’s wife, Sophia, has her own jewelry de - sign business and is finishing a book about the family’s distant past. Anestis is near retirement as a political analyst at the US Embassy in Athens and has started writing two books. Last April he and So - phia celebrated 20 years of marriage. Larry Husten is editor of the online magazine oftheheart.org. He also authors the magazine’s Twitter page, with news on matters of the physical heart. Check out http://twitter.com/cardiobrief. Susan Bliss Soule hopes to make it to our 35th reunion next year. She had a great catch-up lunch with Cindy Staples Hirsch this past winter. Lynelle Schwartz Leess left Darcy Ma - sius & Bowles after many years as a cre- ative director and launched her own con- sulting firm, specializing in advertising, branding, and new product development. She also created a line of jewelry that was featured in the official Academy Awards gift bag and at Barney’s New York. Her biggest pride in life comes from her sons Ben, 25, a financial advisor, and David, 23, a sports marketer. Her husband, Jona - than, recently left CBS as president of its digital media division and is now consult- ing. The two live in Briarcliff, NY, and have a home in Naples, FL.
