Stephanie Ferenc Henderson writes:  I thought I would share what I have been up to for alumni purposes.  After so many years, I returned to school and got my MFA in costume design from Michigan State University in 2013.  I am currently working at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.  For the past four summers I have worked for an opera company called La Musica Lirica.  What is special about this is that it happens in Novafeltria, Italy.  We build costumes for three weeks and then tour the operas for two. The first two years I was an intern and the second two I have been the costume designer.  The students are from all over the U.S. as well as the stage directors and faculty.  We all converge on this little town for the duration.  It’s exhausting but rewarding!  Our son is now 26 years old and works for a media company in Lansing.  My husband Paul is retired but is currently a deacon in the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia.  Hope you are all doing well.

David France writes:  In June 2014 I graduated magna cum laude with a Master of Divinity degree from the Reformed Episcopal Seminary in Blue Bell, PA and am now preparing for ordination into the diaconate.  After a year serving as a deacon I will be eligible to apply for ordination as a presbyter.  Last December, while still a student, I was hired as the Seminary’s Director of Admission and Recruitment and bookstore manager.  This year I am also serving as an Associate Staff member with the Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) and will be working with students at Eastern University.

Charles Pohl writes, “Several old (in both senses) Beta Brothers joined the "lousy rat bastard" tour at Charlie Pohl's home in Boise, Idaho. Kevin Jones, J. Mark Jones, Bob Mende and Gary Marsh all finally figured out where Idaho was after Charlie had been living there for 18 yrs and made the trek for a 3 days reunion of white water rafting, outdoor theater, mountain walking (didn't climb, drove up and walked as befitted our average level of conditioning) and natural hot springs. A blast was had by all and here's hoping they don't lose their maps.
