A Kokosing Farewell

A Kokosing Farewell

by Victoria Ungvarsky

Come May 17, the Class of 2014 will be joining the ranks of Kenyon’s alumni. After four years, the students will be leaving Gambier behind. Many have spent the last several months anxious about their futures, and many still are, but plenty more have found a good place to start. With plans that include Fulbright scholarships, further education, and volunteer work, the Class of 2014 is ready to graduate

Nate Lotze ’14 will be working in a two-year fellowship program with the advocacy group Environment America. “I’ll be in Columbus with Environment Ohio leading advocacy campaigns focused on a variety of issues like renewable energy, fracking and conservation,” Lotze said. Molly Goolman ’14, who has always loved learning and athletics, will take her learning to the next level at the Saint James School in Hagerstown, Maryland. There, she will be a history teacher, as well as a softball and field hockey coach. All the way across the Atlantic Ocean, Lara DelPiano ’14 will be teaching English at a high school in Brescia, Italy next year after receiving a fellowship through Dickinson College.

Back on the home front, Maggie Boelter ’14 will be working on wait staff and housekeeping on a dude ranch in Wyoming. “I’m really excited,” she said. “I’ve never been out West before, so it’s something different and I’ll get to explore and hike and ride horses and do things I’ve never done before.”

In honor of the seniors’ years of energy and leadership, the Collegian has compiled some highlights from their time here. Good luck, Class of 2014!
