Describe your path after leaving St. Francis. 

After St. Francis rescued me from a life of destructive delinquency, I went to Oberlin. Like St. F, it was a perfect place for a natural troublemaker to channel her rebellious energy in productive directions. The one I eventually stuck with was journalism (my first internship, at LEO, hooked me). Writing, learning, talking to people, and sticking it to authority on occasion are my enduring loves, and reporting gives me license to do those things.

The gift of learning without fear.

After speaking on the steps of the US Supreme Court yesterday in support of marriage equality alum Kinsey Morrison ’14 had this to say, “One final thought after an unforgettable day: I realized tonight that if my sisters and I went to any other schools, we might be really afraid to go back tomorrow. St. Francis and Stanford have both given me the gift of learning without fear, one I too often take for granted when I forget how long I lived without it and how many people still do.” Thank you Kinsey and very well done!

Kinsey Morrison ’14, Jillian Morrison G’13, ’17, and Teagan Morrison G’17, ’21, are participating in an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief that has been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in the pending case of Obergefell v. Hodges. The brief, which lists the Family Equality Council, COLAGE, and Kinsey Morrison as named amici, argues that children of same-sex couples who are denied marriage equality can themselves suffer from marriage-ban discrimination. They are asking the Supreme Court to rule that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment.

Here is a link to the brief itself.

Describe your path after leaving St. Francis.         Hazel Levine

After graduating in May of 2009, I moved to Evanston, Illinois where I studied Environmental Science, Chemistry, and Jewish Studies at Northwestern University. I especially enjoyed my research grant work at the Chicago Botanic Garden, racing for the Club Cycling team, and making incredible friends. I graduated in March of 2013 and moved home to work and sort out some health issues before law school. The “health issues” turned out to be Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma. I was diagnosed in August of 2013. I lost all of my hair, most of my high school field hockey leg muscles, and for the first time, I questioned everything. I am so lucky to be contributing–cancer free–to this Wyvern Report just one year after my diagnosis! In my chemotherapy downtime I applied to law schools, and I will be attending Washington University in St. Louis in the fall of 2015. Until then I am living in Aspen, Colorado: working, hiking, cycling, cooking, adventuring, star gazing, and breathing a lot of mountain air! Hope to see a few Wyverns on the slopes this winter!

Briefly describe your career after leaving St. Francis

I attended preschool and kindergarten at St. Francis before it added grades. Having been part of the inaugural 3rd grade in the fall of 1965, I left SFS in the spring of 1971, after 8th grade. I went on to four years of boarding school at St. Paul’s School (Concord, NH), then to Yale University, from which I graduated in 1979 with a B.A. in History. After brief stints in wilderness conservation and banking in California, I returned to New England and began work back at St. Paul’s in 1985, staying for 11 years as history teacher, coach, dorm master and director of college counseling. I earned an Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 1991. Then…
