Hello 2011! As I write, we’ve just wrapped the first
annual Laurentian for Life Week on campus, and
if you didn’t participate in the events I would cer-
tainly encourage you to next year.
Congratulations to
Tricia Yandow
, who recently
launched a business called Gradifye, which helps
connect alumni in the city. You can learn more
about upcoming events by following the com-
pany on Twitter @Gradifye_NYC.
Kelly Skinner
is also launching her own business
as a health coach. You can “like” her page – Flaw-
lessYoga andWellness – on Facebook and sign up
to receive monthly newsletters offering healthy
lifestyle, diet and cooking tips. If you knew Kelly
at SLU, you know she’s a pillar of positivity, so she’s
a great person to turn to if you need a little boost.
Emma Bartscherer
was finishing her gradu-
ate degree in student affairs counseling at SUNY
Plattsburgh when she contacted me in March,
and has accepted the position of assistant direc-
tor for annual giving at Plattsburgh as well. She’s
really looking forward to a rewarding career in
higher education.
Last, I want to congratulate
Aaron Bogosian
on
his recent engagement to long-time girlfriend
Cassie Miller.
Now that I’m active in University social media, I’ve
seen that many of you are doing amazing things
in your post-graduate lives. Send updates my
way so I can share them not only with our class,
but with other Laurentians as well. If there’s one
thing I learned from Laurentian for Life Week, it’s
that the SLU community casts a very wide net and
an overwhelming majority of alumni are eager to
celebrate your success.

Luke Kaplan
has volunteerism in his blood. The
24-year-old Lenox, Mass., resident became an
AmeriCorps volunteer, in part, because commu-
nity service is in his genes. He’s featured in a big
early-April story in the
Berkshire Eagle
newspaper
that focuses on his work with Habitat for Hu-
manity, for which he received an award. For the
full story, go to

MatthewSaulter
posted on a University site that
he is working for the executive education depart-
ment at MIT’s Sloan School of Management. “I
work with executives and CEO’s, enrolling them in
our non-degree courses,”he said.

One of the best feelings in the world is connect-
ing with fellow Laurentians in the “real world.” It’s
even better when it’s a classmate!
InMarch,
Mary Baucom
visited
Amy Callahan
in
Boston as part of her Health and Science Report-
ing seminar for her journalism graduate program
at Medill / Northwestern University. She partici-
pated in a three-day practicum at the Beth Israel
Deaconess Medical Center’s MRI department.
Amy works at Beth Israel as a clinical research
assistant. Not only did these two interact a little
bit at the medical center; Mary also got to spend
the week exploring Boston's north-end neighbor-
hood with Amy. Mary is really enjoying her grad
journalism program and has decided on a con-
centration in magazine writing and editing.
Tishara Joseph
ac-
cepted a position as
an asset protection in-
vestigator/detective
for Lord & Taylor on
5th Avenue in Man-
hattan. She identifies
internal and external
theft
opportunities
and prepares reports
to testify in criminal
court
proceedings
when necessary. Ad-
ditionally, it is the role
of the asset protec-
tion investigator to
hold awareness meet-
ings with store associates, organize departmental
audits, complete safety inspections and verify
merchandise protection standards. Tishara is en-
joying this role, as it is exciting and fast-paced and
keeps her on her toes!
Congratulations to
Lydia Noto
, who recently ac-
cepted an invitation to serve in Botswana with the
Peace Corps! She will be a clinic and health team
worker doing research and community education
on AIDS/HIV.
I continue to send positive thoughts to the Class
of 2013 and wish you all the best of luck in ev-
erything that you are pursuing. Keep the good
news coming!

Hello Class of 2014,
My name is Stephanie Eldon and I am your class
reporter. I was an English major and government
minor. While I have yet to solidify my post-grada-
tion plans as I write my first Class Notes in April,
some of you have already taken that next step.

R
ichard Sharp, right, was an assistant profes-
sor of computer science at St. Lawrence
from 2007 through 2010, when he was named
the lead software architect for the Natural Cap-
ital Project at Stanford University. He has since
hired three St. Lawrence alumni: from left,
Kathryn Glowinski '12, Doug Denu '10
and
James Douglass '10.
The quartet returned
to campus in February, when Professor Sharp
gave a talk about the Natural Capital Project
and the Earth Genome. Another Laurentian
member of the team is Victoria Peterson ’10, a
communications intern.
For details, go to
org, but in a nutshell, the abstract indicates this:
“If an accurate value of natural capital [such as a
forest] can be assessed, it can be used to weigh
real economic tradeoffs (among) multiple spa-
tial planning scenarios. The Natural Capital Proj-
ect develops software tools that help decision-
makers in evaluating those scenarios based
on a wide variety of ecosystem sciences.” The
software “allows spatial planners to construct
a mathematically optimal land use portfolio
given budget constraints, desired restoration or
protection activities, and driven by the biophys-
ical properties of the underlying landscape.”
As that software has “matured,” the abstract
continues, “We have identified a need for an
integrated global framework of data collec-
tion, environmental and economic analytics,
and planning centers to rally future conserva-
tion, restoration and development efforts. This
project, recently christened the Earth Genome,
is in the early stages of planning and software/
hardware prototyping.”
