MaryAlice Parks ’04

It’s a new year and a new administration in Washington, DC—and I am privileged to start a new job in the nation’s capital too. After seven years (and about seven different jobs) with ABC News, in January I accepted a role as a White House correspondent for the network. I am excited, totally nervous and deeply honored. In this next role, I hope to bring tough and probing questions to the administration as well as helpful context to our viewers. Wish me luck and send all ideas, please. Also, my long-time partner proposed early February in our church. We are excited to be engaged and thinking about a wedding. My Blue Tie classmates voted me senior year the most likely to get married last. I don't know if I am actually last, but I think that was hilarious. Class of 2004—I love you all dearly and miss you constantly.
