We have a couple of fun MCVB Alum updates, and one interesting thing about these two particular situations is that the people involved didn't actually play together, or at least most of them didn't! We had 3 former players (that we know of) that ran the Boston Marathon in April!! What a great accomplishment and fun race. Lauren ('11) is on the left, with Kathryn ('16) in the middle and Caitlin ('13) on the right. Caitlin and Lauren are sisters, and Kathryn played with Caitlin, but not Lauren. For additional background, Kathryn is from southern CA but is now living in Boston, while Caitlin is from Boston but is currently living in northern CA for grad school. Lauren grew up in Boston and still lives there, and has run a few of these Boston Marathons! These three joined up for a pre-race picture, which they were kind enough to share with me, and then we have the post or in-race pics also!
Then, in early May, Caroline Cordle ('12) met Gabi Rosenfeld ('17) at a MIDD Alumni Event in Washington, D.C. Gabi introduced herself to Caroline and they started talking and voila--they both played Volleyball at MIDD, but weren't at MIDD at the same time! What a fun connection!
Special Alumnae Note: I'm looking for ways to connect MCVB alums with current players who may be studying or interested in a field where some of you are currently working, so I'd love to hear ideas of how I can better connect everyone?! Alums, would you like to see a newsletter that came out monthly to update you on what we're doing, and who's studying what? I hope you're enjoying the Blog, but for something like this, maybe a direct email would be better?! Maybe a junior/senior profile with their areas of studies/interests? Would you mind if I gave current players your contact information (email most likely) so they can contact you with possible questions about the profession or what your path was like?! Let me know your thoughts and ideas!! I really am excited about this and feel like several mens' teams have been doing this forever, and I'm so proud of our amazing alumnae group and would be excited to make some connections between people!
