End of school year round up for Glen Ellen families and former Dunbar students

High School grads Miles Pimentel and Annie Greenslade.
High School grads Miles Pimentel and Annie Greenslade.
First, a giant thank you to everyone who has sent in information regarding their family's graduates. Most notably, thank you to super-sleuth and former Kenwood Press writer Tracy Salcedo-Chourré for passing along anything she hears for inclusion in this column. (More about Tracy in a moment!)

Alice and Sandy Horowitz report that daughter Hannah has completed her Master's degree in English at Tulane University in New Orleans, where brother Caleb has just completed his freshman year. She's taking a break to enjoy New Orleans for a bit, working as a hostess for Peche Seafood Grill. The next step on her career path will probably include more graduate school. Meanwhile, Caleb will be a counselor at Camp Ocean Pines, a performing arts and nature education camp in Cambria.

Paula and Bob Behmke's daughter Frances earned a B.S. in Business Administration (management and marketing) with a minor in Advertising and Public Relations from the University of South Carolina.

Cruz Chourré just earned two Associate of Arts degrees from Santa Rosa Junior College, one in Religious Studies and one in Humanities.

Stephanie Ozer and David Schoenbach share that their son Gabe will be attending the University of Chicago in the Fall to study Math. Gabe graduated from Maria Carrillo High School as a National Merit Finalist and received the male Scholar Athlete award for his school. He plans to continue with his running passion in cross country. Gabe was a member of the award-winning Honors Jazz Choir which performed the National Anthem at the Sept. 11 Giants Game, and at the famed Apollo Theatre in NYC, and hopes to continue singing in college.

Former long-time Dunbar staff member Margaret Eastwick reports that her son Connor will head to Idaho to study at Boise State.

John Little will be attending San Diego State University. Autumn Cecil will also head south to attend San Diego's Mesa College. Andrea Jimenez will be at Sonoma State University in the fall and Brittany Richards will be enrolled at Napa Valley College. Jesse Figueroa-Gaona will be attending Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. Stephanie Cano-Chavira, Rosa Pech, Joe Dukes, Michel Pulido-Gaona, Colin McIntyre, Alejandro Flores, and Daniel VanKirk will stick together and head over the hill to Santa Rosa Junior College.

Tiffany and Mike Brown report that after completing his senior project on glass blowing at Leaderglass in Sonoma, their son Garrett was offered a job and is now working for owner Alex Leader. He will also be taking classes at the JC.

As mentioned back in May, Annie Greenslade will be moving to U.C. Santa Barbara, and Miles Pimentel is off to the University of Washington.

The buzz from around the bend...

This is a mid-month shorter-than-usual column but I did want to mention that big kudos are in order for Glen Ellen author and former Kenwood Press columnist Tracy Salcedo-Chourré who has published two new books in the past few months. Hiking Through History: San Francisco (a FalconGuide) was released in April, and Historic Yosemite National Park (Lyons Press) was released in May. She will be at Reader's Books in Sonoma for a presentation and book signing on July 14; join her there to learn more about these and her other titles.

As always, if you have any Glen Ellen-related news to announce, please email or call 996-3352.
