From Kim:

Wendy Huber reports that her oldest son Jake recently got married in Charleston, where he and his new bride Hanna will continue to live.

Sara Marple Piehler started a job in May 2018 with the Institute for Transfusion Medicine, which is part of Vitalant in Pittsburgh, PA. Sara works the overnight shift in the blood bank labs at some of the local hospitals. She’s still settling into her new community and would love to hear from any alumni who live in the Pittsburgh area and would be willing to show her around. Sara reports that the best part of the move is that she is now only 4 hours away from her daughter Jill, who is studying Radiologic Technology at Trocaire College in Buffalo, NY.

Jane Ellen Brennan Herrin and husband Jim have been married 25 years and their daughters are now 12 and 13. Jane Ellen now pre-records the weekends on Lite Rock 95.9 in Cookeville, TN. She also does podcasts for Stonecom Radio, which she loves. In addition, she does makeup for Estee Lauder at Belk, which allows her to be a makeup artist without the travel. Jim is happily reporting for the Herald-Citizen. Jane Ellen reports that Cookeville is one of the top ten micropolitan places to live in the US and one of her sisters is going to retire there. Condolences to Jane Ellen, who lost both of her parents in 2018. However, she did get to learn more about her father’s time as a POW in WWII, his presence on the last flight of B-17 bomber Miss Prissy, and about Vietnam.
