We're sorry to report the death of alumna Bonnie Reiss, '80.  Known by some as "the left-hand lady" of California Governor Arnold Schwartzeneger, she served the Governor in various capacities stemming from her friendship with Maria Shriver, who she met while working for Senator Edward Kennedy.  

Bonnie's classmate Tony Oppegard said, "Everyone in our law school class at Antioch (1980) knew that Bonnie would shake things up wherever she put down her roots... She had boundless energy and was smarter than hell."   Alum Eric Ember (Bergerson) wrote, "As I recall, Bonnie turned down Harvard Law School to attend Antioch. She was dynamic, sharp and maybe more importantly, sweet and caring."
