Congratulations to Mike Dardzinski (Law ‘99) and Echo Sun, who welcomed their daughter, Isabella Virginia Sun Dardzinski, to the world on Valentines Day/Lantern Festival! Both Bella and Echo are doing great. Mike is busy recording all of the funny noises that Bella is making so that he can share them with her good friends later in life.
Yale is proud to have had five alumni — Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyong’o, Adam Stockhausen, Robert Lopez, and Thomas Newman — as nominees at the Academy Awards on March 2. And while it is certainly an honor just to be nominated, our congratulations go out to the two Oscar winners, Lopez, who, along with his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, won Best Original Song for the ballad “Let It Go” from the movie “Frozen,” and Nyong’o, for her win as Best Supporting Actress for her performance in “12 Years a Slave.”
