Chuck Smith ’64

I had two one-act plays at the 2017 NVTA One Act Festival. Look Who’s Laughing Maniacally Now about a super villain school and Meeting Acute, a play about a rogue angel fixing up two people in comas–which won the Best Original Production. The productions were nominated for Best Script, Ensemble and Production as well as for Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actress and Best Director.

Patricia Knisley ’45 – Columbus, OH

Happiness is receiving a call from a former Cassingham first grade student of mine about 63/64 years ago! Even better was the second call telling me to look on page 17A in the April 13, 2017 Wall Street Journal. Bob Greene had written an article entitled “I Actually Thanked a Teacher.” Thank you, Bobby! (As a six year old that was his name!) What a nice thank you!

Trudy Horkin ’55 – Melbourne, FL

Enjoying life in Melbourne, Florida. I volunteer at an equine assisted therapy center, but have pretty much given up riding. Marv volunteers at Viera Hospital. Nursing along my garden – gardening down here is certainly different from Ohio. Would like to get in touch with my classmates and any Bexley alums living in this area. You can email me at tahorkiin@yahoo.com.

Hello—I’d like to share a bit of alumni news. My next two picture books in my Chloe Zoe picture book series—”It’s Halloween, Chloe Zoe!” and “It’s Thanksgiving, Chloe Zoe!”—are releasing this August 2017 from publisher Albert Whitman & Co. As with the previous titles, I am both the author and the illustrator. Below are a couple links. And here is also a lovely review from Publisher’s Weekly for the Chloe Zoe Halloween title: https://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-8075-1210-4

Jeff Carroll – 1968

My daughter just had twins in January, a boy and a girl. The boy they named “Jude Daniel” and the girl they named “Bexley Grace.” I guess that we must have come back to town a little too often for the 4th of July. We live in Winona Lake, Indiana and hope to bring the twins back for their first Rubino’s pizza very soon.

Libby (Davis) Wetherholt – 1970

This past year I have served as chair of the Clintonville Area Commission, a group that advises the City of Columbus on the needs of our neighborhood. Being chair is time-consuming, but I have met a lot of interesting neighbors in the 4 years I have been on the commission. Otherwise, I stay busy during retirement by supervising student teachers for Ashland University, quilting, knitting and crocheting. Our son David works for the City of Gahanna and our daughter works for a Marriott Hotel here in town.

Steve Marr ’75

It is always a pleasure to “come back home” to Bexley. This year Tom, Linda, and myself came home to celebrate Cliff’s 90th birthday and Marcella and Cliff’s 65th anniversary! In addition, I just could not stay away from attending this year’s OSU / Michigan game! Rubino’s is still a favorite destination and it is fun driving around town seeing all of the changes to this beautiful community.
