It was an exciting year for Karen Hendrixson, P’17. Her daughter Rachel ’17 graduated from Brandeis in May. Two months earlier, Karen and her husband joined the Brandeis Travelers trip to Cuba, during which she reacquainted herself with Janis Borasky-Schiff.

It turns out they have lived within a few miles of each other for several decades (Karen in Virginia, Janis in Maryland and now D.C.), and their children attended the same D.C. high school.
