Goucher Vagabonds

The 2013 Goucher Vagabonds team just wrapped up their two-week trek along the east coast between Northern Virginia and Maine. Along the way they met with incoming first-year students at send-off parties, interviewed alumnae/i about life post-Goucher, and made stops at several alumnae/i regional events. Read posts from this year’s journey right here and check out more photos and video on the Vagabonds facebook page at www.facebook.com/gouchervagabonds.

Lise Gammeltoft ’66 – Gallup Alumni Survey Sweepstakes Winner

Lise Gammeltoft ’66

Congratulations to Lise Gammeltoft ’66, the lucky winner of Goucher’s Gallup Alumni Survey Sweepstakes. She is one of approximately 2700 Goucher graduates who participated this fall in Gallup’s online alumni survey* measuring how key elements of the college experience affect workplace engagement and five aspects of well-being (purpose, social, financial, community, and physical). By completing the survey, Lise’s name was automatically entered into, and later selected as the winner of, our raffle for a $250 Amazon.com gift card.

Lise, who is a retired attorney in Green Bay, Wisconsin, has much to celebrate, having just attended her daughter’s wedding in September; and in December, she became the first female to receive a lifetime achievement award from her local bar association in Brown County.

Like many Goucher alums, Lise has spent a lifetime working to make an impact in her community. After returning from the Peace Corps in 1972, Lise received her law degree at the University of Green Bay and began a 31-year legal career in family law and employment discrimination. She retired in 2009, but she says this by no means has slowed her down. Lise currently volunteers as a mediator, a literacy tutor, and sits on five different boards for various good causes. In fact, when we caught up with her, she was busy packing her bags for a volunteer Habitat For Humanity project in El Salvador.

Keep up the good work, Lise. And congratulations.

*The Goucher Gallup Alumnae/i Survey produced a 34% response rate. Full survey results will be published online later this spring!
