Dear Cavalier Daily alumni and friends,

I hope you are well and enjoying the lovely spring weather!

I’m writing to inform you of a virtual event sponsored by the Virginia Club of New York scheduled for next Wednesday, April 20, that features several Cavalier Daily alumni. Sheryl Gay Stolberg (CLAS ʼ83), Emily Caron (CLAS ʼ19), and Ben Tobin (CLAS ʼ19) will be reflecting on their careers in journalism, beginning with their time at the University. An audience Q&A will follow the discussion. Additional information about the event, including a link to register for it, is below. I hope that many of you will be able to attend and support our fellow CD alums!
