It’s been many years since I’ve read, let alone edited, an Options Opus, so I don’t even know if you print alumni notes any more. I thought about this during the summer, when I read about Teresa Mosqueda winning a primary election for the Seattle City Council in July. I thought about it again when I went to the Harlequin Theater to see First Date. I noticed right away that Eleise Moore had a role, but it wasn’t until I got there that I discovered that lead actress Christie Oldright is our very own Christie Murphy. Then later, I received my City of Olympia mailer for Arts Walk and pow – there’s Jules McEvoy-Schaefer (aka One Fine Fool) juggling on the cover. And I’m probably desensitized by my For MCs by MCs Facebook feed, but who knew that prominent Northwest battle rapper Heretic the Heathen is Colin McGee. I’ve been out of Options since 2002 so I don’t know what the younger grads are up to. The first time I wrote an alumni update it concerned the plethora of female Options graduates excelling at high school sports in Olympia so I suppose that sort of dates me.
Hi John, I’ll pass on your thoughts to the Opus Editor. It’s so wonderful to hear news of Lincoln Alums! Thanks for sharing. – Shawn
And no sooner did I post the above when I got inkling of this, concerning Shane Anderson winning an award for his newest film.
How lovely. Congrats, Shane! John, I spoke with Sarah, the opus editor. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in keeping tabs on all of our alumni. We love the idea of acknowledging Lincoln alumni on a regular basis.
