To measure the impact of a social enterprise, sometimes all it takes is a suitcase. The item in question was a piece of missing luggage, which caused momentary panic for Tom D’Eri ’11 and his parents on a recent trip to New York. After looking around, they were dumbstruck to realize what had happened: D’Eri’s 23-year-old brother, who has autism, had already claimed the bag.
Sitting down recently with Bob Weafer ’68, MSF ’81 and Emily Williams ’14 was like spending time with old friends — even though the pair had met only once before, at Bentley’s annual Scholarship Appreciation Luncheon. Here, the two share their perspectives as donor and recipient of a scholarship established by Weafer’s parents, Robert and Mary. It is awarded to a Bentley student based on criteria that include financial need and academic performance.
One perk of Grace Atwood’s job at online fashion jewelry boutique BaubleBar is the dress code. Or rather lack thereof.
“At my first job we had to wear suits three days a week — and I wasn’t making any money, so my suits weren’t very nice,” she says with a laugh. “I threw out every single suit that I owned when I started here.”
The Pinterest boards of Fernando Rodriguez ’88 are a splendid illustration of his design aesthetic: luxurious handpainted wallpapers, classic Edith Head sketches, cerulean Caribbean landscapes, and the sophisticated hair stylings of Justin Timberlake.
“Some people read at night before going to bed, but I look at beautiful images and get inspired,” says Rodriguez, laughing. “It’s a great way to release creativity.”
