2014 – Spring ’22 Class Agents
Hello, Class of 2014,
I (TIM HOLME ’14) hope everyone is doing well. I’m hopeful that we can all reunite at Ripon for Alumni Weekend pending another Greek letter COVID variant emerging this summer. I can’t believe it has been three years from our Class Reunion and eight from graduation, time really does fly by. I have been living in Portage, Wisconsin, for three years now. I recently took a new position within the DNR as a Conservation Biologist Crew Lead. I still live with KATIE WILLIAMS ’13 pending I do the dishes and make her breakfast. Here is what the rest of the Class of 2014 is up to.
