Class notes


Attending May Day?

Susie Kauffman: I'm the office manager/bookkeeper for Living Water Community Church, a multicultural congregation on Chicago's north side. Enjoying being settled for a change after so much back and forth overseas.


Cathy Bonham Brenneman: After 12 years in children's mental health as a therapist and clinical supervisor, I jumped into a new field.  I am now the executive director of The Nurturing Center, a nonprofit family resource center.  In my spare time I still do my private practice.  Busy, yes! But gratifying, too! Wish so much I could be at our reunion! 

Denise D. Miller: This is my 35th year teaching middle school special education students mostly in an inclusion setting. I have been at the same school in Naples for 30 years. Still enjoying the sunshine.
Randy Keeler: In my 24th year at Bluffton University and am currently associate professor of religion. During the 2014-15 academic year I have been on sabbatical working with Ohio Mennonite Conference as a resource for their youth ministries.
Bret Stopher: I retired from teaching in 2011 and currently am working part-time at the Care & Share Thrift shop in Archbold.  We just celebrated our first grandchild and I play disc golf whenever possible.
