Mitchell, Kelly (Rickon)

Kelly (Rickon) Mitchell '81 writes, "I am married with two sons, 13 and 17 years old, and live in the house in San Diego where I grew up. I was blessed to be on the 1980 and 1984 Olympic teams as a coxswain for rowing and won a silver medal in '84. My career has mostly been in sports (building the Olympic Training Center in San Diego, and development director for the San Diego Crew Classic), but now I'm working as a development officer for Point Loma Nazarene University. Is anyone playing golf on Friday? I'm on the fence."

Kerttula, Beth

Beth Kerttula J.D. ’81 resigned from the Alaska Legislature for a fellowship with her alma mater, Stanford University. 

The Juneau Democrat has served in the House since 1999 and as minority leader since 2007. She hadn't drawn a general election opponent since 2004 and would have been up for re-election again this year.

Prior to running for the Legislature, Beth Kerttula worked in private practice and served as an assistant public defender in the 1980s and assistant attorney general in the '90s. Kerttula has been a vocal advocate on women's and children's issues, equal rights and of Alaska getting its "fair share" for its oil and gas resources.

In the attorney general's office, she worked with the state's coastal management program and on oil and gas issues. As a legislator, she supported efforts to set standards for cruise ship waste discharges and in more recent years she supported -- unsuccessful -- efforts to re-establish a coastal management program after it lapsed.

Freeman, Robert

Robert Freeman ’81, a Los Altos High School Teacher, will be honored with the Palo Alto Kiwanis Club's first Angel Award later this month for his work with One Dollar for Life, the nonprofit organization he founded.

The Angel Award was created to celebrate an individual or organization who mentors and impacts children in the community and throughout the world.

Freeman founded the nonprofit because he was frustrated with "teenagers' sense of impotence in being able to make a difference in the world." So, he made a model by which anyone, by donating a dollar, could participate and change the world -- provided everyone did so.

Through One Dollar, Freeman is working to get children in developing countries complete access to food, education and health care by providing transportation to schools, educated teachers and necessary nutrients. In five years, One Dollar has raised approximately $209,000 from middle and high school students and has completed numerous projects including sending 250 tennis shoes to students in Malawi and buying 20 piglets to save 20 Nepalese girls from being sold into slavery.
