Alumni Couples





 Tell us your story

September 2007
Patrick '09 and Sarah Woolley Houston 2011
"We started out as friends in a group that celebrated “Adventure Fridays” exploring Georgetown. It wasn’t until that summer that Sarah confessed she had a crush! We started dating in 2008 and married 8 years later. Now we’re adventure partners for life, currently on a long-term bicycle tour!"
September 1989
Jon Porter '93 and Nisa Sharma '92
"It all started at Reggae Fedt with Michael Smith and the Killer Bees. We had already met, but that night, we talked on the veranda until the band started packing to go, then we talked for four more hours. After that moment, it was forever."
June 1947
Verlon '48 and Mildred Mangrum Feller '49
"It started when I was asked to accompany Verlon and 3 of his friends to sing at a revival meeting at DaVilla United Methodist Church, one of Verlon’s ministerial student appointments near Cameron, Texas."
