Collier-Peppard wedding party

Brooke Collier wrote in with some major life updates! On July 8, 2013, she married Sean Peppard (Yale ’95) in a small ceremony with his son, Connor. They had a large celebration September 7 in Cleveland overlooking Lake Erie. Tigers in attendance (l-r) were Mike Phillips ’96, Emily (Brown) Phillips, Kate O’Connell Scavello, Sandhya Gupta ’98, Kevin Zeppernick ’00, Lindsey Leininger, Karen Welt Steeves, Kenna (Hooper) Zeppernick, Sean, Brooke, Dana (Deaton) Verner, Mary Elisabeth Plowden, Darya (Kovalchuk) Mastronardi, Kris Mastronardi, and Gabrielle (Collier) Price ’04. Then on February 22, 2014, Brooke and Sean welcomed Shane Richard Peppard to the mix of his big brother, two chocolate labs, and a cat. Fortunately, Heather Gordon Schloss ‘90 brought over Tiger gear for Shane before he could don any blue bulldog attire. The family lives in Shaker Heights, Ohio. Brooke teaches middle school humanities at Hawken School, and Sean is a partner in the corporate law department of Ulmer & Berne, LLP.
