Class Notes

Amy (Forgacs) Bishop BA ‘03, MPA ‘05, and Brad Bishop BA ‘03, MPA ‘04, are thrilled to introduce their twins, Fiona Elizabeth and Nathaniel Paul, born Dec. 31, 2013. Since they were not expected until March, Fiona and Nathaniel will be in the Class of 2035, not 2036 as expected. The only question now is whether they will live in Hinman or CIW!
Mike Crane ‘82, director of Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR), was recently elected to the NPR board of directors after a nationwide vote among public radio representatives. This is Crane's first time serving on the 17-member board. His term begins in November 2014 and will last three years.
