CLASS NOTES FALL 2016 \ PIERCE 61 Winnisquam School District! I am so excited! " 2013 Amelia Walters '13 writes, "Hello Franklin Pierce! I've just finished up my second term with AmeriCorps, at Social Capital, Incorporated. It's a great organization in Massachusetts that supports volunteerism, community engagement, and youth development. It was another life-changing year spent with AmeriCorps! I'm still working at my host site, the Hockomock Area YMCA with Health Innovation. One of the main projects I worked on was recruiting volunteers for the summer lunch program, that gives free lunches to youth all summer in Milford! I am so glad to be a part of it. The Hockomock YMCA is an awesome organization that does amazing things for their communities. I even got to meet two FPU alumni. That's it for now. Until next time, fellow Ravens." 2014 Evan Bannister '14 writes, "Since graduating in 2014 with a bio degree and four years playing lacrosse, I have been conducting research at University of Pennsylvania in the departments of Orthpaedic Trauma and Sports Medicine. I also conducted a pilot study for the Penn Anesthesia Department that received an NIH R01 grant worth $12 million to expand the study to over 35 hospitals in three counties. I am applying to medical school this summer." Brett Bosley '14 just received a promotion to assistant director of athletic communications at Virginia Commonwealth University. Along with his success at VCU, he enjoys his free time with Susannah Batchelder '13 , MBA '14 . Rachel Moon '14 was promoted to community residence manager at Fellowship Housing Opportunities. 2015 Dr. Sharon "Sherry" Anderson DA '15 teaches at Husson University in Bangor, Maine as an adjunct sociology instructor. She received her fourth personal invitation and Zachary Hayden Cary M.Ed. '08 reports, "This past year was my eighth year teaching third grade! I am so thankful to have such a rewarding career, and a beautiful wife and son supporting me the entire way." After graduating from Franklin Pierce with an English degree, Renee (Beauregard) Lute '09 received her MFA in creative writing from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her writing has appeared in a number of literary journals, magazines, and anthologies, including Bellevue Literary Review, ROAR Magazine, Mamalode, and two Chicken Soup for the Soul collections. Her illustrated children's chapter book, Bat, was published by Red Bird Chapbooks in 2015. In 2016, Renee signed with an agent at Thompson Literary. Renee lives in a suburb of Seattle with her husband and three young children. Nicole Kedaroe '08 , (arts management) is now living in Marietta, Georgia. Nicole is the centre programs manager for the renowned Atlanta Ballet and the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education in Atlanta. She spends her days using her Arts Management degree from FP to work on choreography projects and teach dance classes She celebrates her new engagement to Shawn Adams Jr., graduate of Morehouse College, 2009. Nicole and Shawn plan to have a fall 2017 wedding in their Boston hometown. Kimberly "Kim" Ruth '09 and fellow Ravens were able to attend the wedding of Shannon Force '09 at the Crystal Plaza in New Jersey to her high school sweetheart, Ryan McGowan. Randy Bernosky '09 started his bucket list long before graduation. He worked in Alaska on the Bering Straits fishing with The Most Dangerous Catch for two years. It was grueling and certainly dangerous! After his adventure, he surfed the coast of California, achieved his dream to night cave dive, and hysterically outran a Texas longhorn trying to cow tip! He is now a mortgage officer with Wells Fargo and is the proud uncle of nephew Sam and niece Esme. We think he has only used about five of his nine lives, so we'll wait to see what is on his horizon! The only thing we are sure of is that grass does not grow under his feet.
