November 4, 2019 / Catherine Nicholas / Blog

Here’s our round-up of alumni news from the week of November 2, 2019:

  • The RTD spoke to Crystal Barlow Robens (’96), who is running for the Hanover County Board of Supervisors in the Beaverdam district.  “I am running for office because I am highly qualified, have the time and ability to serve, I am not beholden to any special interests or the construction industry, and our citizens deserve an active participant as their representative, who will get things done.”
  • Kate Lipper-Garabedian (’99) won re-election to the Melrose, MA City Council.
  • Jillian Johnson (’99) won re-election to the Durham, NC City Council.
  • Style Weekly talked to Kyle Healy (’03) about making the decision to leave New York for Richmond to join his siblings in running the Housepitality Family restaurant group.
  • Lucy Dacus (’13) released “Fool’s Gold,” the last song from her 2019 EP.  “I started writing ‘Fool’s Gold’ the moment after the last person left a New Year’s Eve party I hosted in 2018,” Lucy Dacus said in a statement. “I did what I said—drank the last of the champagne alone, felt anxious, and locked the door behind everyone. New Year’s has grown to be my favorite holiday, and this may be my favorite song on the EP.”
