Her story: Last October, Kaitlyn Catalano graced the pages of our political issue, and we haven’t been able to get her out of our heads since. Luckily for us, the same girl who drinks India pale ales, makes homemade pasta and has us dreaming Italian is back in the magazine, only this time as the Classmate of the Year. The Alaskan-born model left Colorado at 9 years old but moved back to Denver to pursue a degree in music journalism. She said she hopes to ride the tour buses and socialize with the music elite as she waters a budding career as a journalist. She had us at IPA.
