Tell us your love story!
We don't remember how we first met, but it must have been sometime during seventh grade at Bishop's! We had a lot of mutual friends in high school, but were not very close. Even though we were in nearly all the same subjects (memorable favorites include Latin with Mr. Up, Calculus with Mr. Schwab, and English with Mr. Mulgrew, to name a few), somehow we did not have any classes together. Each summer during college, some of our Bishop's friend group would return to San Diego and reconnect, so we got to know each other better. We started dating in our last year of college (Alicia at UCLA and Bart at Harvey Mudd). We got married in 2016 at the Martin Johnson House in San Diego, with many Bishop's alumni in attendance, including sister of the bride Roxanne Hanson '08, Matron of Honor Quincy Bock Stokes '06, bridesmaid and sister of the groom Claire Broad '09, Cornelia Gordon '06, Best Man Russ Nickel '06, groomsman Alex Lazarides '06, groomsman Brian Laub '06, Alex Cunningham '06, Chris Ludwig '10, and Tasha Bock '10.
How did Bishop's impact your relationship?
We would never have met if not for Bishop's! We have so many fun memories and shared experiences from school.
