• 2016 alumnae Julia Green and Anabelle Gutman spent time last year in India as part of an inaugural program to help students plan learning trips abroad at Design Tech High School. From start to finish, they researched, planned, raised funds and traveled with great success and the desire to return.
• Mazel Tov to Lauren and Joel Abelson '94, on the birth of their twins Elle Noa and James Harris. Grandparents Mark and Gilah are thrilled!
• A hearty Mazel Tov also goes to the entire Maller family as Sam Maller '05, is engaged to his bride-to-be Avery Hartman.
• Natalie Spievack '10 is beaming! She is currently working in Washington, DC at the Urban Institute, a non-profit social and economic policy research organization. She is working on issues related to education and workforce development. She is still close with several of her Wornick friends, and when she comes back to visit California, they often reminisce about their time in school together. Kol Hakavod Natalie!
We are so fortunate that Wornick students (current and alumni) are supported, challenged and inspired to become their very best selves - confident young adults with the desire and skills to change the world. As we move into the next generation, we encourage you to continue supporting of the school, stay in touch, arrange a visit, and come see how we have grown up too. We'd love to have you!
