- Jeremy Edwards '92 (recipient of the Forman Award) and his company, SportsChallenge facilitated leadership training for 28 of Haverford’s athletic captains in 6 seminars over the 2011–12 academic year. And this summer Edwards leads the National Coaches Institute on campus at Haverford.
- Before becoming a food writer and author of the critically acclaimed cookbook Ripe, Cheryl Sternman Rule '92 (winner of the MacIntosh Award) was a philosophy major, a Justice Department employee, a Peace Corps volunteer, a graduate student and a stay-at-home mom.

Alums build on CPGC projects in collaborative Plums for Trash exhibition
Past CPGC grant recipients Christina Freeman '05 and anthropologist Elana Resnick ’05 are collaborating on a performance work. The exhibition builds on Resnick’s CPGC-funded undergraduate work in Bulgaria, where she expanded her doctoral research, and Freeman has since joined her. Plums for Trash invited visitors to trade unwanted things ("waste”) at the Red House Centre for Culture and Debate in Sophia. Freeman brings these new Bulgarian “trash” objects " to New York for her Hunter MFA thesis exhibition, where visitors will be invited to bring their own “trash” for trading. Take part and support our alums!
