BONITTO, Chantal '04
As a graduate of Oberlin College and the Fundraising Strategy Certificate Program at The George Heyman, Jr. Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising, New York University, I am very active in both Alumni networks. I am also involved in community work through my sorority activities and as a mentor with the Fresh Air Fund's College Connections Program.
There are opportunities to work with us as an intern. This is a very progressive organization and I can see any Obie gaining a lot of knowledge around fundraising, non profit work and the women's movement.
They can email me with their resume and cover letter: email@example.com. The subject should be "Potential Oberlin Intern" (2012)

REICHGOTT, Heather W. '01
After graduating from Oberlin as a Sociology and Religion double major I went on for an M. Div. and a Ph. D. in Christian theology. My work in theology is focused on issues of power and discrimination as they affect religious thought and practice. I think Oberlin's sociology program helped me clarify this direction of study early on. I just completed my Ph. D. (graduated from the Graduate Theological Union in May 2012) and am working on several potential article and book projects. I have been active for years in More Light Presbyterians, the LGBT caucus of the Presbyterian Church (USA) working for the full inclusion of LGBT people, and am glad to report that we succeeded in changing the rules regarding ordination in 2010. I am also a pianist, and learned to accompany dance classes at Ohio Dance Theatre in Oberlin. I have been working as a professional pianist and teacher since about midway through my graduate study. I live in South Hadley, a small town in western Massachusetts with a great arts community, with my wife Gillian and daughter Tovah.
If any sociology students are interested in issues related to Christianity and gender/sexuality I would be happy to help connect them with academic and church-activist resources. firstname.lastname@example.org
