In Memoriam It is with great sadness that we report the death of Scott Studenmund, son of Woody and Jaynie Studenmund ’76. Only 24, Scott was killed in Afghanistan on Monday, June 9th, during military engagement. Additional information can be found here. Click here for an article about Scott. A memorial fund has been established in Scott's memory


Spenta Captain Kandawalla, who was the only Pakistani student in Hillary Rodham's class at Wellesley College in 1969, talks about her longtime friend with "Sunday Morning" correspondent Jane Pauley. She describes the former secretary of state who made herself into a diplomatic "punching bag"as someone who "could punch back too." Click here to watch the video

Jaynie Studenmund has joined the boards of Core Logic (CLGX), a premier data information and management company, and Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK), a leading gaming and entertainment company. Both are publicly traded. A small world story is that Desiree Rogers and Jaynie both joined the Pinnacle Board at the same time.
