Crossroads alum Lindsay (Class of ’11) has been invited to ski race in the Junior Championships. She qualified for this first by competing with the best girls in her age group in her region of the state. Based on her success there, she then competed against the best girl skiers in her age group in the state of NH in three events: slalom, giant slalom, and the super-g. Lindsay came in first place in slalom and giant slalom and sixth place in the super-g. Lindsay gained the title of the best NH girl’s skier in her age group based on her overall performance, and consequently she will go on to represent the NH girls in the Junior Championships starting at the end of March. Congratulations, Lindsay!
I am currently living in North Carolina and working for a start up tech company iBODD.com. Given the current state of health care in this country and Obama’s health care reform laws that are attempting to implement Evidence-Based Medicine as a standard practice amongst physicians, we invented iBODD (Intelligence Based Ontological Discovery and Dissemination). We are developing Evidence-Based Clinical Decision Support software to in effect provide physicians with the most current and up to date evidence based on previous patient data, journal articles, and clinical trials to support their diagnosis and treatment plans. We are currently partnered with Duke University in the development phase of our software.
In my spare time I am working on becoming a skydiving instructor. I have 189 jumps and will have my coach rating soon so I can start teaching people how to skydive. When I get to 500 jumps I will get my tandem rating so that I can attach people to me and jump. ~ Elliot Byrd
Emily Cogsdill (Class of 2003) graduated from Carleton College in June 2011 with a double major in music and psychology. This fall, she entered the PhD program in Social Psychology at Harvard University. With the help of her advisers, Professors Mahzarin Banaji and Elizabeth Spelke, she studies the psychology of first impressions by researching how kids perceive other people. In addition to doing… research, she is constantly working on homework assignments with her classmates. (Emily is pictured here on the right, working diligently on a difficult math assignment with her classmate.) She hopes to one day be a professor so that she can continue to work on her research while teaching college students about the joys and mysteries of the human mind!
