Jay Tuck

JAY TUCK ’68

Jay Tuck celebrated his 67th birthday by completing a 100 km (63 mile) stretch for the month of April. “I started with sports late in life”, says Jay who ran his first marathon in Berlin at age 53. Two years later, he was featured in “Runners World” as the first American ever to run the Siberian Ice Marathon in Omsk with temperatures under minus 40ºF. “I am a slow runner,” he said. “But no one out there is having more fun!” Jay Tuck launched a 40 year award-winning television career with the Antioch student film The Date.

COREY SLAVITT ’79 AND FRIENDS

Corey Slavitt and friends

Corey Slavitt ’79 was lonely for all things Antioch College and Yellow Springs when she moved to Washington, D.C. after 29 years in the village. But Antioch College is everywhere! At a neighbor’s New Year’s Day Brunch, Corey met Dale Brown ’76. Since then, the two have grooved at the March Anjelique Kidjo concert and dined at some of D.C.’s eclectic bistros. Rebecca Mark ’77 and Johnetta Kitzmiller (Lykes) ’88 visited Slavitt the last two Novembers. Fun times!

“Forty years after we became friends at Antioch, we still get together for rafting, hiking, and climbing throughout the West, or mountain biking in the Moab, Utah Canyonlands area where this picture was taken. Of course, a great deal of philosophizing and expounding on the issues of the day are part of every trip. The common values that brought us to Antioch still bring us together today.” —Keith Olson ’75
