Antiochian Personal Accomplishments
Alumna Sings Antioch's Praises in New Memoir
Beryl Radin ’58 grew up in Aberdeen, SD, the daughter of European immigrants. Her career path includes journalism, government, and academia. What connects all those pieces of her background? Her Antioch years, which were central to both her professional occupations and her lifetime of activism.
“My commitment to that unusual college in Ohio actually began the minute I walked on the campus,” writes Radin in her recently-published memoir, Leaving South Dakota: A Memoir of a Jewish Feminist Academic. “It was clear to me that I had made the right selection of a college and never had second thoughts about that choice.”
Radin’s story is available online at Amazon. Read more about her varied career at http://www.berylaradin.com

Lisa Wellmann ’65
Lisa (Zetumer) Wellman ’65 was just elected Washington State Senator. President Barack Obama endorsed Wellman in her race for state Senate in the 41st Legislative District. Wellman is among a select group of state legislative candidates from around the country to be endorsed by the President.
“I am honored to be endorsed by President Obama,” said Wellman. “The voters of our district have supported the president every time that he has run and to have his support now is a powerful message about the importance of our district electing a state senator who stands up for democratic values like education, a clean environment, and respecting the rights of all our residents.
Wellman has worked across Washington state in support of economic development and micro-enterprise in addition to her career in high tech. She is currently on the state’s Public Works Board and board of Partners for Rural Washington.
