Class Notes Class of 1976 Jennie Brooks Jamison ’76 wrote: “I graduated from NC State ’80 and VCU ’83 and ’86 and was recruited to help start the IB Program at St. Petersburg High School in Florida. I jumped at the chance and am now in my 31st year of teaching. I mainly teach IB Psychology but also have many years of experience with eory of Knowledge (TOK). I am very involved with IB and lead workshops, act as an examiner, and have worked on four curriculum reviews. I write texts for the course and my newest book, Psychology for the 21st Century, will be out in early 2017. I will teach as long as it is fun and enjoy sharing my interests in Tai Chi, meditation, and organic gardening with my students. I love living in St. Petersburg and married John Jamison 16 years ago, a chef, Kung Fu Sifu, and respiratory therapist. My two passions are working for Big Cat Rescue in Tampa and traveling. My latest trip was to Mongolia in the summer of 2016 where a group of women hiked some of the back country. I am also working on parts of the Appalachian Trail. I visit Richmond several times a year to see my extensive family. I would love to hear from old friends at email@example.com.”
Class of 1987 Chris Johnson ’87 wrote: “After I graduated from Trinity I went to St. John’s University in Queens, NY. It wasn’t until I got there that I realized how well Trinity had prepared me for the course work. I graduated from St. John’s University and went to John Jay College for graduate work as a probation oﬃcer with the New York City Department of Probation. In 1993 I joined the New York City Police Academy and was assigned to the 75th precinct in Brooklyn. I worked with some of the best cops and detectives in the world and it seemed like every major news story had some connection to that place: Diallo shooting, the New York Zodiac killer and even Dan Bongino’s run for Maryland US Senate. I worked in narcotics and on a joint task force with the department of probation where I was involved in great cases and survived 9/11. After four years I was promoted and assigned to the 67th precinct in Brooklyn. Assignments included transit, anti-crime and vandals squad. Now that I am close to retirement, my proudest achievements (other than my wife and two kids) include watching guys I trained or supervised succeed and move on to bigger and better assignments and it’s made me wonder if that is how our teachers at Trinity felt.”
