Please save the date for our upcoming Lunch with Alumni featuring Vashi Nedomansky (’88) on Wednesday, March 17 during B Lunch. Vashi is a former NHL player and current Hollywood film editor. His dad, Vaclav Nedomansky, was also in the NHL and was the first hockey player to defect from eastern Europe and went on to play for the Toronto Toros and then in the NHL for the Red Wings. Vashi graduated from DCDS in 1988 and will be interviewed by your classmates Dwight Ellis (’21) and Lauren Mocur (’22). He is joining us from LA via Zoom.
Please submit questions here by THIS Friday, March 5th. I’ve attached a deck he shared with us so you can learn a bit about him and included a bio from IMDB below.
Thanks so much and see you on March 17th!
