Scholarly Samaritan

Kalatchi, pictured with David Stifel, assistant professor of economics and business, is active in the "Adopt A Grandparent" program with her sorority Delta Gamma.

Lafayette University and sophomore Jesse Kalatchi of Malibu is pursuing a double major in economics and business, and international affairs with a concentration in French at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. She spends time each week at the Easton Retirement Home.

“My involvement in this program has been really fulfilling for me and it brings me great joy to see how excited our ‘grandparents’ get when they see us walking down the halls every Monday,” Kalatchi, a 2007 graduate of Viewpoint School, said.

Kalatchi enjoys keeping busy with her majors and service activities. She is the daughter of Bertan and Suzette Kalatchi of Malibu.
