Favorite Memory of High School: There’s not just one or two.  Being a part of this great class left me with many fond memories which are being revived by this website and thoughts of the reunion.  Teachers like Lib Ferguson, Hannah Duncan, Kitty Jackson and the classroom experiences with them will never be forgotten.  Spending time with friends, letter girl practices, and Friday night football games are just some of those memories.

Proudest Moments of My Life: (1) The birth of each of my children, (2) The birth of each of my grandchildren

Things I Would Like My Classmates to Know: My first grandchild Justin was born in Seoul, South Korea, so I flew 21+ hours by myself to see him.  Oh, what we do for our children and grandchildren! 

I love remembering all of our good times together and look forward to reminiscing with all of you at the reunion.  Be there!
