Cary '71 and Nancy Jacobs Feldman '73

Classes had not yet begun in the fall of 1969 when Cary '71 and Nancy Jacobs Feldman '73 first met. It was a Yellowjacket Day picnic. She was a freshman planning to major in general science, and he was a junior with a double major in history and economics.

That first meeting has led to a 30-year connection to the University, a connection the Feldmans continue to maintain as parents of Michael '01 and as volunteers and leaders in the Washington, D.C., Regional Alumni Council.

The Feldmans are members of UR Involved, the College's alumni outreach and volunteer program, and they helped to organize the D.C. Regional Sesquicentennial Celebration.

They also have hosted receptions for prospective and admitted students and gatherings for William Scott Green, dean of the College, to meet with area alumni.

"We are," Cary admits, "not the kind of people who say 'No,' for better or for worse. But we have been drawn closer to the University over the years through the kinds of volunteer work that we have been able to do."

Terry Gurnett '77 of Alumni Relations and Development says the Feldmans are among the first alumni he and other staff members think of when there is an event planned for Washington.

"I can't say enough good things about Nancy and Cary," Gurnett says.

After graduation, Cary earned a law degree from George Washington University. He currently is an attorney with the firm of Piper Marbury Rudnick and Wolf, returning to private practice after serving as the Deputy Independent Counsel in the investigation of Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt.

Nancy earned her master's degree from George Washington and is a "home and hospital" teacher who tutors students who have to be out of school for four weeks or more due to illness, injury, or disciplinary problems. She's also a part-time instructor at Montgomery Community College.

Nancy says Rochester has been an important part of the family's lives, more so now that Michael is on campus. The couple's other son, Steven, goes to Emory University, and their daughter, Jaclyn, 13, is at home.

"We met a lot of people at Rochester whom we still stay in touch with," she says.

Adds Cary: "Between being alumni and having a son there, we feel like we are very much a part of the University community."
