Baby update alert! Besty Kohl reports that she and husband Mark welcomed Heather Lynn Sept. 26, 2014. Heather’s big brother, Mark Peter, is now a very energetic 2 1/2-year-old. Mark Sr. works for Reinstein, Glackin, Patterson & Herriott in Bowie, Md., and Betsy is with the Department of Energy, in the office of the general counsel. The family is looking forward to a hiking trip to Alaska in 2017 to celebrate Betsy and Mark’s 10th anniversary.
Erica Breckner Schwedel noticed the paucity of recent class news and was kind enough to share the belated birth announcement of Emily Claire, who was born in November 2013. Emily joins big brother Danny. Erica is currently taking time off from her job fundraising for Achievement First, a nonprofit network of charter schools, to be home with the kids. Erica’s husband, Andrew Schwedel (Penn ’91), is a partner at Bain & Company’s New York office. The Schwedels live in New Canaan, Conn.
