CLASS OF 2010 | 2019 | ISSUE 3

Greetings, class of 2010! A short column this time around:

Aivi Doan and Wade Hsu welcomed their second baby and moved to Los Angeles where Aivi is now a physician at CareMore and Wade is a professor at USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering.

Jesse Bordwin is moving on from academia for a new gig. He reports: “I’m leaving my job as an English professor at the University of Virginia to start as a consultant at the D.C. office of Bain & Company.”

Eugene Podborits and Briana Nixon ’11 celebrated their wedding on Sept. 14. Eugene shares: “It was full of Wesleyan spirit—officiated by Sofia Leitner-Laserna ’12, with best man Lu Yang, and attended by Mason Tang, John Jung, Dave Wolovsky, Sam Bernhardt, Meera Bhardwaj, Peter Lubershane, Aaron Kelley, Joanna Kelley, Ashik Siddique, Gary Chance, and Katie Nihill.”

Mytheos Holt completed a Lincoln Fellowship at the Claremont Institute in California. The Lincoln Fellowship provides fellows with the opportunity to study alongside the Claremont Institute’s senior fellows and visiting scholars. Lincoln Fellows study how “the statesmanship and political thought of the Founders and Lincoln should guide policymakers today.”

Finally, make plans for Middletown the weekend of May 21-24, 2020; we are hoping for a great turnout of motivated Cardinals for our 10th Reunion! Details may be found at

Thanks to those who contributed and as always, feel free to pass along notes anytime.
