Catherine Meyers is a student in the science communications graduate program at UCSC, a one-year graduate program designed to turn scientists and engineers into writers. As an assignment for one of her classes, she has started a blog about the process of becoming a science journalist: She said, “We blog on a pretty diverse range of subjects, from otter- viewing field trips at the Monterey Bay Aquarium to questions of ethics, online comments and interview techniques. The purpose of the blog is to explore the world of science journalism, and we hope to foster conversations amongst journalists and scientists about how best to inspire and educate the public about the world of sci- ence and technology.”

grand prize. More than 25 percent of alumni participated in the sur- vey, launched in fall 2009, which has resulted in valuable information about the achievements and contributions of alumni (see page 22). Aaron, who is pursuing a math Ph.D. at the University of Hawaii while working as a teaching assistant, said, “I’m delighted to have won. Despite the ample opportunities for distraction it offers, it has been helpful in preparing for my Ph.D. comprehensive exams. Intriguing that Harvey Mudd has now therefore not only provided the education to get me where I am, but the technology as well.” To view survey results, go to

. I N MEMO R I AM | Sara Elizabeth Goetz ’08

Sara, 24-year-old daughter of Paul and Kathy Goetz of Bremerton, Wash., died Oct. 23 in Berkeley Calif., from a blood infection. Over the past year, she fought a disabling nerve disorder that caused her severe pain and though her death was related to this ill- ness, it was completely unexpected. Sara was born in Bremerton and was

co-valedictorian at Olympic High School in 2004. She enjoyed sports, playing trombone in jazz band, nature, ani- mals, riding horses and caring for her many pets. Sara spent the last six years of her life with her boyfriend, Nick

Sherrow-Groves ’08, whom she met at Harvey Mudd College. She majored in biology and studied for a semester in Costa Rica. After she returned, Sara worked at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, fulfilling a goal she made after her sister, Jenica, died from leukemia in 1993. In the past year, Nick earned his master’s degree at UC Berkeley,

while also caring for Sara. Nick and Sara planned to marry as soon as she could walk down the aisle unassisted. Survivors include her parents Paul and Kathy; her boyfriend Nick;

her two sisters, Karen and Hanna; and her grandparents, Robert Goetz and Edgar and Betty Starr. Sara was preceded in death by her sister, Jenica (1993), and her grandmother, Doris Goetz (2008).
