Dickerson Zimmermann 2004

In lieu of a paper copy, here's a web version of the Dickerson-Zimmermann family bulletin sent out with our holiday cards this year, written by Paulette Dickerson. See DickersonZimmermann2004FlipSide for the reverse.

http://zhurnaly.com/images/zhurnalnet_z_images/dz2004/dz2004_robin.jpgRobin is a freshman mechanical engineering major at the University of Maryland, College Park. He is in the Honors Program, a member of the first class of Inventis Scholars and a recipient of the Banneker-Key Scholarship which covers tuition, room-and-board and books. He even got a "refund" by choosing the lowest option for his meal plan.
http://zhurnaly.com/images/zhurnalnet_z_images/dz2004/dz2004_gray.jpgGray is also a freshman at UMD; she studies violin there with David Salness. This semester she is in a string quartet, is in the first violin section of the University's Symphony Orchestra, is playing a Beethoven violin sonata with a collaborative piano player, was a finalist in the Ulrich Competition and was awarded a CAPA scholarship which pays her full tuition.
http://zhurnaly.com/images/zhurnalnet_z_images/dz2004/dz2004_merle.jpgMerle is a chemistry grad student at University of Maryland. His first experience as a Teaching Assistant has been to lead discussion sections of General Chemistry for Engineers (where a year's worth of knowledge is packed into one semester). He has 215 students in six class sections.
http://zhurnaly.com/images/zhurnalnet_z_images/dz2004/dz2004_mark.jpgMark has run two more marathons and his first two ultramarathons (a 50k and a 50 miler) this year --- though he happily walks a lot along the way. He continues to post a weblog and add pages to his wiki at http:zhurnal.net and to the new domain at http://zhurnaly.com
http://zhurnaly.com/images/zhurnalnet_z_images/dz2004/dz2004_paulette.jpgPaulette still chairs the Chevy Chase Library Advisory Committee and is an advocate for better library service everywhere. She has begun to work on several writing projects that she had set aside while she homeschooled her kids.

And the family as a whole, as of December 2004:
