Changing of the Guard

January-February 2006

After almost three years of attentive service to alumni in general as Harvard Magazine’s class-notes editor, Lisa Rotondo Hampton ’89 is leaving to devote more time to her three young daughters and their many activities, to her supervision of pre-service teachers pursuing state certification through Tufts University, and to her duties as secretary for the class of 1989.

Colleen Lannon

Joining us as editor of “The Classes” with this issue is her classmate, Colleen Lannon ’89. Lannon is pursuing a Ph.D. in British literature at Boston College, focusing on Victorian negotiations of economic changes, a topic that combines her business background with her love of literature. She and her husband, Don Seville, live at Cobb Hill Cohousing, a 23-family “green” development located on an historic working farm in Hartland, Vermont. They have an 18-month-old son, two cats, and a flock of sheep that they co-own with three other families. Lannon worked as an intern at this magazine in college, and says her new job “feels like a homecoming of sorts.”
