SPRING 2017 \ PIERCE 77 1967 Gilbert Peck '67 reports, "2016 was a great year for the Gil Pecks. We love living in the mountains of North Carolina. We have been blessed with good friends, good health and cool weather. Florida was just so hot in the summer. Family and grandchildren continue to parade to grandma and grandpa's. Did I just say that! Wasn't last year 1967? 2017 finds us looking foward to travel and hopefully a stop at FPC campus. As we grow older, we realize how important and rich those "Pioneer Years" meant." "Hello Franklin Pierce... this is Sharon Lyn Stein '71 , EdD; (IMDB) from Rancho Cucamonga, CA. I ma- jored in theater and minored in English and both of those degrees have served me well and led to a master's and doctorate degree in education with an emphasis in the visual and performing arts. Besides co-chairing with Henry Ellis on the social committee that lead to that wonderful winter carnival with Janis Joplin, I took part on many committees at Franklin Pierce. My education has led me to make a living from teaching and the performing arts. I'm a member of SAG-AFTRA and Americans for the Arts. Every year for the past four years I have been performing for an equine therapy organization for special needs kids. This year we did a Cole Porter review and I won best actress award, and it all started with Franklin Pierce. I was in Matt Berman's film "The Wedding Pact" as well. Matt Berman is a Franklin Pierce alumnus. I also have been a West Coast chapter leader for many years, bringing California alumni together for many events through many Franklin Pierce presidents over the years. I love my alma mater and will always be grateful for the education, friendships and knowledge I received there. Thank You Franklin Pierce University! "
