Arthur and Simone Cushing of Meredith announce the engagement of their daughter, Lisa, to Ross Robertson, son of Kimberly Thomas of Meredith and Mark Robertson of Irvine, Calif.
The proposal took place on the bank of the Corrib River in Galway, Ireland, near Menlo Castle. Ross surprised the parents by arranging for them to be traveling on the Corrib River just as the proposal took place. Lisa was equally surprised to see the family in Ireland. A congratulatory dinner was held that evening at Cooke’s Restaurant in Galway City.
Cushing, a biology major, and Robertson, an engineering major, graduated magna cum laude from the University of New Hampshire in 2012, and were members of the Inter-Lakes High School Class of 2008. Cushing is working toward a medical degree as a physician’s assistant, while Robertson is employed at CH2M HILL, an engineering firm in New York City, where the couple resides.
No date has been set for the wedding.
