Class of 2000 Winter 2024 Class Note

Greetings, Class of 2000, we’ve got another batch of classmates to recognize in this issue of the alumni magazine:

Cathy Brezinksi (Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture) was elevated to the position of senior creative resources manager with her company, Rinck Advertising. She has been there since 2015, serving in a variety of roles for a wide range of clients, and the company president said Cathy “is the glue that holds a project together. We are happy to promote her with a title that encompasses all the important work that she does for the agency.” Paul Ostrowski (engineering) was promoted to project delivery engineering and design manager at his firm, Sebago Technics. And Aaron Martin (engineering) joined Sevee and Maher Engineers in Cumberland as a geologist this summer!

In addition to these exciting career moves, a couple of other classmates are making the news: Heather Olds Gray (communication sciences and disorders/psychology/Honors) had her company featured in the October issue of Business NH Magazine. Gray Consulting and Therapy, LLC was recognized as a Top Women-Led Business in New Hampshire, and her picture is even on the cover! And Sharon Cyr Fournier (business administration) was recently featured with an article in the Rangeley Highlander after purchasing the Mountain Star Estate in Rangeley along with her husband, Trav Fournier ’99. In addition to hosting events like weddings, Sharon and Trav will bring in vacation renters to their farmhouse accommodations. The couple met as students in Orono, and have visited the Rangeley area for camping trips from the very beginning. “We’re always looking at real estate and things to do together and Trav found this wonderful piece of real estate. Our kids are 17 and 20 and it’s a project that he and I could work at together as we become empty nesters.” For more info on Sharon and Trav’s property and rental details, check out the April issue of the Highlander!

Congrats to these classmates, and I’ll look forward to sharing more news from Class Y2K next time!
