Virginia Gonzalez-Belles, Ed.D. retired in December 2016, in her 44th year at Northampton Community College, where she was a professor in both the counseling and psychology departments.  Her workload was a mix of career counseling and teaching psychology courses.  She also taught as an adjunct at Teachers College, Columbia University, for 15 years, retiring from there in 2014.  She enjoyed the contrast of teaching master’s and doctoral students versus the freshmen and sophomores she taught at Northampton.  Virginia and hers husband, Paul Belles, are now splitting their time between their homes in Pennsylvania and New Mexico and hope to start traveling more to cross off items on their bucket lists.  Virginia still fondly remembers her years at Moravian and hopes her classmates are doing well.  Please note this is a corrected update from the previous magazine.  We incorrectly reported this as Terrell’s information.  We sincerely apologize for the confusion.

My daughter Lisa and her husband James have a 2 1/2 year old daughter Sarah and a 1 year old son Jonathan. She is a pediatrician in Salisbury, Maryland. My son Kevin and his wife Jacki have the oldest and youngest grandkids, Dylan at 3 1/2 and Maura at 2 months. Kev is a math teacher at his high school alma mater. (The apple doesn't fall far from the tree - another math major like mom). Youngest son Curtis and his wife Kris have 16 month old Gwen. He is in construction management with a firm in Baltimore. Another highlight of the summer was a huge birthday party with lot s of friends and family, thrown by my kids to celebrate my 60th (how did we get this old...) birthday. Hope everyone has had a great summer too!”

From the Alumni House:

Rev. Edward Farrell-Starbuck serves at The Shepherd of the Valley United Methodist Church in Rhode Island. The church is located on the border between Hope Village and the city of Cranston.  In February 2009, a modern and practical addition was added to the church, which made the space adaptable for many different activities. Rev. Farrell-Starbuck says that he feels very comfortable in this modern addition which conveys a sense of both tradition and new concepts.  He is an ordained Methodist Elder and has served the Methodist Church for over 31 years.  Pastor-Farrell-Starbuck feels that worship is like a rehearsal, with room for change and room for error.

Tom Repasch writes, “After a 34-year career with the U.S. government, I was fortunate to retire from the State Department in 2006 and see what other opportunities awaited me.  I moved from New York area to a house on a lake in NE Pennsylvania and have been doing volunteer work in arts-related organizations as well as with the Moravian Alumni Association.  Answering a call to service, I returned to work as a U.S delegate at the United Nations during the fall 2008 General Assembly, enjoying the full time engagement for a few months but also feeling blessed that I did not need to work all the time.  I’ve also traveled a bit, visiting Russia, Finland, and Italy most recently and looking forward to a trip to Austria this summer.  My son Michael is a musician who tours the country and Europe regularly, and I go to see him when I can.”
