In case you haven’t yet witnessed the stellar thespian turn of President John Kuykendall ’59, Associate Dean of Students Kathy Bray ’85 and a bevy of grateful Davidson students—or if you just want to see it one more time—the 2011 Davidson College Annual Fund Thank You Video is going viral. Ingrid Love Harding ’91 was so impressed by the AF thank you video that she forwarded it to Katya at the Non Profit Marketing Blog who in turn posted it on the APRA LinkedIn discussion board. Go, Ingrid! Go, Katya!

Bravo, bravo!

Survival of the Fishest.

Not Just Kidding Around. Laurie Ballenger ’89 and her husband are adopting five (5) children from Lithuania—and they still have time to blog at Adventures in Familyland. That’s a lot of love.
