In August my husband Tom and I moved into a 150 year old home in Midtown Mobile, AL, and two days later a 200-year old, four-ton live oak crashed through their backyard onto our garage. What a welcome to the neighborhood! In October we celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary in Navarre Beach, FL. In November we attended our niece’s wedding in Phoenix, AZ. I serve on the Mobile Arts Council and the SouthSounds Music Festival Boards and volunteer with several other local nonprofit organizations. We’re looking forward to the start of Mardi Gras season which means weeks of balls, parades, and float barn parties. This spring we plan to get Rescue Diver certified on a Caribbean scuba vacation. Please email your Mary Wash memories and personal and professional news to me at email@example.com.
Rene and Sonya (Snider) Rios ’91 live in Ashburn, VA with their two kids attending VA Tech. Nicholas is a Senior graduating from VA Tech this spring, and Natalie is enjoying her freshman year at VA Tech.
Christine Harrison Casey ’92 was recently promoted to Director of Philanthropy at Transitions LifeCare (Hospice of Wake County) in Raleigh, NC. She is responsible for managing a team of three and raising more than $1.5 million in Unrestricted Funds for the agency each year. She won a scholarship from the Association of Fundraising Professionals local Chapter to attend the International AFP Conference in San Antonio, TX in late March. She and her husband Tom recently welcomed his oldest daughter April to live with them after her year of living abroad in Thailand.
Kate Stanford McCown ’92 and her husband John enjoy the Canton, GA, home they moved into in the summer of 2017. Kate got back into the working world in August 2018 as an Area Director for a national au pair agency, AuPair Care Inc. They recently traveled to her nephew’s wedding in Leesburg, VA with their kids, Mary Ella (15), Jack (14) and Ashlyn (7). Oscar, their 100 pound Bernese Mountain, was a wonderful new addition to their family in 2017 and keeps the family busy.
Donald Fuller ’92 retired in January from the Army after 26 years of service as a Chief Warrant Officer 5 and attack helicopter pilot/instructor. After six long deployments and several shorter ones, he decided it was finally time to move on to an adult job and focus on family and the rest of his life. His first post military career takes him to the Dubai, UAE where he will be flying as part of a contract, still remaining in the attack aviation world. He’s excited to be close to Europe where he grew up. He plans on working overseas for a little while and then come back stateside for good. His long term plan is to get a post graduate degree in something completely useless, but interesting, and also opening up an animal sanctuary of some kind. He hopes to end up in the Boise, Idaho area, where his family is.
Tevin Chaney ’92 still lives in McLean, VA and works with data analytics for the federal government. He took some time off from work since he was diagnosed with Stage 4a colorectal cancer in late August. Treatment has been aggressive but is going very well. He finished chemotherapy in December, earlier than expected due to very positive results. He began chemoradiation in late January, and surgery is expected to take place in April. He maintains a very positive outlook despite an initially disappointing prognosis, and his body is responding to treatment better than expected. He reminds everyone of the importance of getting a colonoscopy and not to delay.
