Hello fellow Toads! After 15 years with my firm, ZS Associates, I decided to create my own sabbatical program to spend the summer with family. And what a summer it was! In 5 weeks, Craig, Zachary (age 11), Wyatt (age 8), and I covered over 5,200 miles in our 1990 VW Westfalia camper van. We […]

Beth Roberts Farley ’84

Better late than never: I successfully completed my Master of Education in Professional School Counseling in June 2019. It was a challenge paired with working full-time, parenting 3 kids (still at home), and getting a divorce.

And that means fighting the developers who seek to bring in resorts—and the good news is that he’s […]

Natalie Selzer ’08

In summer 2016 three of us from the class of 2008—Meredith Dworkin, Douglas Land, and Natalie Selzer—reconnected in the old Thacher way: during a weekend camping trip (this time with a car full of snacks parked nearby and something other than water in our Sierra Cups). Our outdoor excursion in San Simeon, California, brought back […]

Don Reed ’67

Don celebrated the unveiling of Along the Trail—his sculpture depicting President Reagan astride his favorite horse El Alamein—at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. After 50 years in foundry and sculpting, Don was honored to share his effort as part of the late president’s 105th birthday celebration at the library. His biggest challenge was, “to keep […]
