On the morning after graduation last May, Curry Heard (third from left) and four friends posed for this snapshot on their first day as newly minted SMU alumni. Heard, who grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, majored in advertising and Spanish and now enjoys a fast-paced career as an account executive for Brynn Bagot Public Relations. She recently shared this photo with SMU Magazine and provided an update about the other four members of the Class of 2012, all of whom live in the Dallas area. Pictured from left: Julie Amundson (originally from Las Vegas, Nevada) will join Deloitte after earning her master’s degree in audit accounting from SMU’s Cox School of Business in May; Katherine Bruce (Kansas City, Kansas) majored in broadcast journalism and serves as regional sales representative for Estech Systems; Curry Heard; Sarah Grayden (Orange County, California) is also working toward an MSA at SMU and will join KPMG after graduation in May; and Georgia Grey (Denver, Colorado), an English language and literature major, teaches kindergarten at Laureate Preparatory School.
