Dana also serves on the Parents Council, Alumni Career Corps, reunion committees, and the L&C Strategic Planning Work Group, and she helps select recipients of the Alumni Leadership Scholarship.

  • D Liz Quayle BA ’82, after 21 years as director/teacher in a K-12 alternative program in Port Townsend, Washington, has joined the alternative learning department at Washington State’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.

  • Julie Swehla O’Herin BA ’82 has lived in 10 countries on five continents and has been in 52 countries so far (as well as almost all 50 states). Her studies in linguistics and cross-cultural education led to field study and teaching, which she loves. O’Herin, her husband, Brian, and their two sons have earned (in total) several postgrad certificates, two MAs, and three doctorates. But now, her greatest accomplishment and joy is learning to be the best grandma she can be to her two grandchildren. Julie and Brian serve with SIL International and currently live in Southern California, where they also are involved in volunteering in their community.

  • “I just read that Steve Kantor is retiring,” says Halsell. “I remember the huge impression he made on me, a callow 22-year-old first-year law student back in 1979, with his insightful position on the death penalty. He influenced me into becoming a lifelong death penalty opponent. And I’ll never forget Ron Lansing reciting Scottish poetry in torts class—I LOVED it. I also have fond memories of working closely with Len DuBoff—often as his running partner—never realizing that what I really wanted was to be an artist myself (which I’ve finally become). The friends I formed at Lewis & Clark have lasted me 37 years. Thanks for the memories. I’d love to hear from anyone in the L&C community.”
