Ned Hooper '73


I’m recently retired from a 30-year career in orthopedic/hand surgery. UNC, Duke Med, UVa Ortho, Univ Texas hand fellow along the way. Have been blessed with 31 years and counting with my wife Kelly, and raised our three (now grown) kids in Roanoke, where we plan to stay. Retired this year, but staying engaged in issues that embroil our society, environment, our collective futures, and pursuit of happiness. Have stayed in touch with a number of classmates, and regularly with Alex Armstrong, Rob Gettinger, and Jake (aka, Dicky) Washburne. Hope all’s well with you! Good luck posting everyone’s news. BTW, the class reunions (I have made about every 5th year milestones) are always fun and inspiring. We truly have a super group of classmates that gets better, not simply older.
