The Inaugural Class celebrated 15 years together at their annual reunion – this time for three days in New York City in September. Kim Pendergast organized it and Jay Marshall moderated; Danny Villanueva, Laurence Belfer, Beth Brooke, Tim Krauskopf, John Hillen, John Rogers, and Debi Coleman all attended. Jay writes: “Highlights included a tour of the 9/11 memorial [led by 2012 Fellow Joe Daniels who heads the memorial], a vigorous debate on Catholic social doctrine, and one of the Fellows enjoying his first ever alcoholic shot. Always exploring . . . “ Kim added: “Hillen provided his own readings, adding his own flavor to the intellectual debate.”
