Alumni news

Jesse Pickard, '98 just received $1.2 million in venture capital funding for his company Mind Snacks, maker of mobile education games. Jesse started Mind Snacks less than a year ago after receiving start-up money from a venture capital competition.  The company specializes in teaching foreign language through iPhone apps, with Spanish and French games available and Mandarin and SAT Prep on the way. Go Jesse! 

Lydia Youngman, '08, is a junior at Emma Willard.  Lydia spent last week here in an internship helping Susie in Art class and with the K-1's.  K-1's interviewed Lydia and will be making a book, All About Lydia, as part of 20th Anniversary efforts to find out about our graduates. When you read the book, you will be able to find out how many friends Lydia had in kindergarten and if she has ever been on an animal ride. (among many other things about Lydia!)
