Hamilton’s new Program in the Adirondacks got off to a good start with a welcome dinner hosted by Susan Bacot-Davis ’88 at her home on Lake Champlain in Essex, NY. At the dinner the students met a few other alumni and several of the partners they would be working with throughout the semester. Susan kindly invited the group out to the lake a few weeks later, where they spread their Hamiltonian pride in the form of a blanket.
Students participating in the first Hamilton Adirondacks Program are Annie Emanuels '16, Taryn Ruf '17, Ianthe Lekometros '16, Amelia Denney '17, Alexa Merriam '17, Julia Ferguson '16, Izzy Bradford '16, Kianee De Jesus '17 and Rachael Wilkin '17, who was unable to attend. The program’s general director is Janelle Schwartz ’97.
