APESF PROFILE Elizabeth Cundiff ’84, senior associate director Cundiff leads the Alumnae Engagement team, handles all alumnae-related programs and events, and supports the Alumnae Leadership Council (ALC), the governing body of the Alumnae Association. “I have the best job in the world—supporting and engaging with Scripps alums,” says Cundiff. “Whether I’m identifying ways to enhance reunion or connecting alumnae to each other through programs like Camp Scripps, my days are always busy with all-things Scripps.”
Campbell, Ellie David, Liebe Gray, Leslie Lasher Monsour, Charla Connelley Shadduck, Sue Talbot, Ann Westaway, and I—with many other classmates present in spirit, talk, thought, memory, and by phone/e-mail. We recollected other times together, including our 20th reunion where we began the crafting of Camp Scripps and the Lois Langland Alumna in Residence—both inaugurated in
1994, our 25th reunion. Informally, we began to imagine the 45th reunion this May and a 50th gathering in the spirit of ’69ers’ alumnae activism. Kathleen Snipes (Chapel Hill, NC) I submitted an abstract to the American Federation of Aviculture (AFA) last year and was an invited speaker at the AFA global meeting in Raleigh, North Carolina, last August; my topic was “Parrott Foraging in the Wild.” Although I didn’t take Spunky (my Amazon) to the meeting, I’ve learned a lot about life living with him at home for the last seven years.
Martha Hatch Reich (Los Gatos, CA) When Sophie Acheson informed her friends that she was moving from the East Coast to Sonoma, California, it seemed like a good chance for some of her classmates from the Class of 1971 to greet her and enjoy a weekend in “wine country.” Twelve of us arrived on August 23, 2013, and had a wonderful mini-reunion. We visited several wineries, and had delicious meals at the local restaurants. Getting caught up with our classmates was fun, and we all recalled our fond memories of those formative years spent at Scripps. As Rita said, “Such a joy to build upon what had only begun to germinate so many years ago.” Our thanks to the organizers—Diana Ho, Nancy Trimble Worthington, and Tempe Johnson Javitz.

University Long Beach. As assistant dean of students, I coordinated the 15th annual Women and Career conference last March. I have served as assistant dean for 11 years, and it has been a pleasure to bring distinguished women to campus.
