James Shreve, ’10

Peace Corps volunteer James Shreve, ’10 (pictured above), was highlighted in a Q&A piece in the Arizona Daily Star for return from his two-year service in the South African nation of Malawi. He worked for the country’s Liwonde National Park to reduce human and wildlife conflict.  

Dual Olympian Lopez Lomong, ’11 BS, won the 1,500 meter title at the USA Indoor Championships in February, which earned him a spot on the IAAF World Track and Field Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland. Unfortunately he did not advance past the first round, but was grateful for the opportunity to visit another country and meet fellow athletes.

Andrew “A.J.” Pasquale, ’12 BSBA, is an intern for the UCLA football coaching staff. The opportunity serendipitously came to him after a life-changing event in which he lost his younger brother Nick to a car accident. Football was one bond that held the two tight, and Nick played on the UCLA scout team for a season. Dealing with the turmoil of his loss made A.J. quit his San Clemente, Calif., marketing job, and as he struggled with grief, he went to where he felt welcome: UCLA football practices. He got to know the coaches and soon a career opportunity manifested itself.  He will coordinate recruiting videos and organize scout team practices, eventually with the goal of recruiter or administrator.  “Nick made it happen,” A.J. said.  Read more about A.J.’s story.

Alysha A. Shipley, ’13 BA, was featured in an article for her participation in the Animas Roller Girls roller derby team of Farmington, N.M.  Alysha, who returned to Farmington after graduation, found the sport highly addictive as soon as she tried it. "I just decided to come to practice, and I've been hooked ever since."
