2022 Class Notes
Over the holidays, the Class of 2020 got together at Radio Social!
The night of commencement is usually quite the “to do” for the graduating students and the parents. In some cases, they organize an all-night party that includes bounce houses, laser tag, a sleepover, games, and movies
Luisa Barbano ’11 posted this on Facebook:
“A decade ago, I wrote a short story for Patricia Malone‘s (Upper School English, 2009 to present) creative writing class….This spooky season, my Gothic horror piece has finally found a home!”
Sybil Prince ’00 and her husband, Adam, welcomed baby Evelyn to the family this summer.
“Harley was an immensely formative experience” –Daniel Effron ’01 Daniel joined Harley in middle school in Grade 8, graduated from Yale University, went on to receive a Master’s and Ph.D. from Stanford University, and is now a professor at the London Business School
Sara Hanna ’91, a professional photographer in Atlanta, GA, had her work recently featured in Simply Buckhead magazine. Sara’s work has been featured in national magazines and she shared her expertise with the Harley community on a Zoom call in August of 2020.
Peter Brown ’80, architect, planner, development consultant, author, and instructor at the University of Minnesota, recently shared on LinkedIn, “I was deeply honored to have the opportunity to speak at the Lithuanian Real Estate Development Association conference today, and to talk a little bit about my book, How Real Estate Developers Think. I hope to have shared some useful and universal truths about the role of collaboration in successful development.”
Members of the Class of 1971 gathered for a fun-filled weekend in June to celebrate their 50th Reunion! Special thanks to Ann Hallick, Larry Lunt, Nancy White McGahey, and Robin Rae Vavrina for their help pulling the class together! Those monthly Zoom calls really did the trick!
Rob Gulick ’83, Chris D’Amanda ’78, Mike Lasser (English, 1966 to ’98), Kitty Lindsay Hawks ’66, Doug Gilbert ’87, and Ron Richardson (Art, 1975 to ‘98) gathered at Kitty’s home for refreshments and conversation before going to a concert by musical legend Dennis Wilson. From Ron Richardson: “Great fun to join together with such a variety of friends to attend a memorable show.”
John Goldman ’52 was thinking about his upcoming 70th Reunion from Harley and shared a great story. John knows how to celebrate a birthday in style! When he celebrated his 80th birthday back in 2014, he “sold” all of his party guests a copy of a book that he wrote about his life—for 10 cents.
