From the Alumni House:

     Susan Hyer, known as Susiehyer, is a plein-air painter living in Evergreen, Colorado. When she moved to Colorado, she took a 15-year hiatus from painting in order to raise her two children. But now she is painting again and enjoying the various landscapes that Colorado has to offer. She has an art studio, but she mainly goes outdoors to paint.

  Amy L. Hawley writes:“I attended the Moravian Home Club event on Nov. 17th. We all met at the Hotel Bethlehem and then went holiday shopping at many of the downtown boutiques with our discount vouchers. Afterwards, I had dinner with Denise Torma ’77, my former badminton team partner and coach Dawn Ketterman. Bette Kovach ’75 and other alumni were there too. Fun catching up with everyone. On January 14, 2011, I am scheduled to particpate in the Backpack to Briefcase event at Moravian to assist graduating seniors with their upcoming job interview skills. This is part of an ongoing alumni effort to keep students connected with the local business community. I urge my fellow alumni to attend the Annual Entrepreneur Speaker Series event that we host in mid-September. Additional details will follow.”

From the Alumni House:
          R.Timothy Smith writes “After being one of the millions of unemployed through 2009, I received offers for and worked two different jobs this past month. For two weeks I was a temporary administrative clerk with the 2010 Census. Then, effective 1/21/2010, I began a new job at Pennsylvania State University. I am serving as the curriculum coordinator for a two-year project funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. Our goal is to develop curriculum modules for K-12 students in the area of environmental toxicology. Fortunately, the project involves a number of toxicology research scientists to keep the content accurate, especially since my degree from Moravian was in mathematics and physics. What I hope to bring to the project is my years of experience with science teaching and learning, providing professional development for teachers, and science curriculum development and evaluation. The broad focus of the project is to help students better understand how concerns for environmental issues can be informed by the work of research scientists. Related to this, the project intends to offer a limited number of summer internships for high school students to work with research scientists here at PSU. As to my non-work hours, we live in Spring Township, just outside of Bellefonte, Pa. Deb is an assistant professor in science education at PSU. My folks are both still living in Bethlehem, in the house they bought when I was in second grade, so we try to get there to visit when time permits.”
