Graduates in the News
Ivy’s former Undergraduate Treasurer, Adam Hyndman ’12, was recently featured as PAW’s “Tiger of the Week” for landing a role on Broadway. After five years of chasing his dreams, Hyndman’s break came this year when he was selected to join the cast of Aladdin, which he describes as “an acrobatic, very intense spectacle of a show.” His secret to finding success in the competitive world of performing arts? “There’s no such thing as luck,” he states. “I believe it’s all about opportunity meeting preparation.” Congratulations, Adam!
John Drummond ’71 took Reunions by storm last year when he and two other alumni made a cross-country motorcycle trip to Princeton. In a recent PAW interview, Drummond and his fellow adventurers describe their 4,600-mile trip as “a chance to see America up close, and reminisce about Princeton along the way.” The full interview, entitled “Travels with Harley,” is available on PAW’s website.
