Greetings, Class of ’92.
I’m so sad when summer ends, not because of the crazy cold winter, but because I return to Virginia for most of the winter. Traveling to clients’ sites in Virginia and DC is a bit too challenging in January, February, and March! The upgrades to the house in Waldoboro are plodding along. We love the ceramic heater and also added a small woodstove in the kitchen. By the time you read this, a high efficiency heat pump will be up and running and spring will be upon us. Anyone who wants to stop by and visit while things are in progress — please just send an email or give me a call.
The Class of 1992 has been industrious over the last few months, starting with Michael Reagan, Jr.’s ’97G publication of his book that describes teens who flourished despite obstacles. Some of the essays in Nursery School Dropout describe events at Cheverus High School in Portland. Although the book explores serious topics it has many moments of humor. Find it on Amazon.
In October, Tim Scott, along with his father and brother, were part of the inaugural class inducted into Ellsworth High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Although most of his documented awards are in basketball, Tim achieved success in baseball and soccer as well. Tim’s athletic achievements and honors are too numerous to list but his basketball highlights include his high school record of 1,831 points after leading Ellsworth to the 1988 Eastern Maine Championships, being named Maine’s first Mr. Basketball as well as a Converse All-Star All-American, USA Today All-American, and a Bangor Daily News All-Maine First Team Honoree.
Continuing on the sports theme, Nancy Allard Jusseaume shared her UMaine memory: “Playing ice hockey when the women’s club started again in the late 1980s. Most of us had little to no skating ability but that didn’t discourage us! I started out as left wing with my roommate on right wing on the same line. Shortly thereafter, we had a need for a goaltender and having been an athlete all my life, I volunteered to try it. There I stayed for the rest of my college career and I loved it. I’ll never forget a trip just three weeks after taking on the new position when we went to Colby College and their coach said he played his top two lines most of the game and he thought I had been playing for at least three years. We lost significantly but gave it our all that game and all others.”
After a varied career that started in education and included years in the world of business and time dedicated to being a stay-at-home mother, Sarah Barclay Currier recently returned to teaching elementary school as a full-time teacher at Edgecomb Eddy School. Jack A. Frost G joined Bar Harbor Bankshares in October 2017 as vice president, director of community giving. In this position Jack oversees the bank’s charitable giving efforts across all markets including Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. In November Sen. Amy Murchison Volk of Scarborough was selected by her fellow Maine GOP senators as the majority whip. In August Caroline Fasulo Raymond was named superintendent of Long Creek Youth Development Center in South Portland. She was selected among candidates after a national search.
