News and updates from Green River Preserve alumni…
GRP alumni and Hendersonville High School senior, Elizabeth Lackey, finished first in the Henderson County Cross Country 5K Championships. Congratulations!
Catherine Kirkland, former GRP counselor, works as a civil engineer in Bozeman, Montana. In January, she is heading back to graduate school for a PhD in Environmental Engineering.
GRP alumni staff Rachel Macrorie-Fairweather and Gabe Hargrove were married at the Preserve on October 13th. Alumni staff in attendance were: Angela Watkins, Wesley Hart, Molly Wafle, Jane Izard, Andrew Schmidt, and Hilary Warren. Anne Izard Mead was a bridesmaid and Sandy performed the ceremony. A beautiful new arbor made of wood from around Upper Bald was used in the ceremony and is in place next to the gazebo on the front field. The ceremony was very special and included many references to the Woodcraft Laws.
Mentor Pawel Nazarewicz is in his first year of his PhD program at Virginia Tech and ran into another first year doctoral candidate Cathy Bodinoff a mentor from about 10 years ago at Green River Preserve. You can go the world over and right there when you least expect it is a GRP friend.
