Debbie Mintz, director of the Students FIRST Project in Chittenden County, Vt., and a longtime employee of HowardCenter’s Child, Youth and Family Services, received the Juanita Evans Memorial Award for Contributions in School Mental Health. The award recognizes an individual who has helped advance school mental-health policy, research and/or practice. Juliana Rice was named deputy chief of the government bureau in the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office. The bureau represents the state, its agencies and its officials in many types of civil litigation, and defends state employees from civil claims. Juliana, a graduate of Boston College Law School, had worked in the office’s administrative law division as an assistant attorney general and managing attorney for 11 years. Most recently, she was town counsel in Arlington. Sarah Artzi is the interim religious-school administrator at Congregation Anshei Israel, overseeing the religious school’s day-to-day operations. She is a lifelong member of the congregation in Tucson, having attended its nursery/kindergarten and religious school. Attorney David Ball was elected a fellow of the Connecticut Bar Foundation’s James W. Cooper Fellows Program, which promotes a better understanding of the legal profession and the judicial system, and explores ways to improve the profession and the administration of justice in Connecticut. David is managing partner at Cohen and Wolf. Peter Rogovin lives in Pleasantville, N.Y., with his wife, Sarah (Lindsey) Rogovin ’90, and two children, Annie, 9, and Alex, 6. He recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the founding of his firm, Next Level Strategic Marketing Group, which provides brand-strategy consulting for mission-based and for-profit organizations. He is also the volunteer president of Foodchester, the nonprofit that runs the Pleasantville Farmers Market. Peter serves on the Foodchester board with freshman- and sophomore-year roommate Andy Goodman, who lives a few blocks away. They both visited Pleasantville for the first time in the late ’90s when they went to sign contracts with their wedding band (same band; weddings about a year apart) and both thought, “Hmm, Pleasantville — nice town. Maybe someday I’ll take a closer look.” Five years later, each had moved to Pleasantville, and the roomies were reunited. The Brandeis references and memories keep them quite amused. Gregory Zuckerman caught a Yankees game with Harold Simansky and Adam Brauer. He is looking forward to seeing James Reichman, Marc Tobin and Stuart Schrader ’90 when he and his family travel to Israel in February 2015 to celebrate the bar mitzvah of his youngest son, Elijah Shane. Greg’s recent book, “The Frackers,” was released in paperback in October 2014.
