Congratulations to Katie McAlpin and Sheldon Owens

Katie McAlpin and Sheldon Owens (class of 09) were married in late April. They met through the MHP program. McAlpin says, “I am so happy, 7 years later, to call him my husband.” They moved to Charleston two years ago and Sheldon is the architectural historian and archeological lab manager for the Brockington office there.

Katie is working in what she likes to call “a slightly-related field.” She is an editor for Arcadia Publishing, which publishes pictorial histories. She sees it as a community preservation project. “It’s a good learning experience. It has been interesting to learn the daily operations of a publishing company and face the issues that are obvious with print publishing today.”

Katie and Sheldon bought a house last year— a 1957 ranch with red oak floors, tons of mid-century details, mature oaks in the yard, and the only renovated room is the kitchen. Katie writes, “We absolutely love being homeowners!”
