Comments: My ride since high school has been an interesting one.  After graduating from NIU with a degree in Nursing, I immediately went to live in downtown Chicago.  I then went to U of I for a double masters; MBA and MS.  Since then I have been a health care consultant for 2 major firms. I have recently been promoted to Partner at Deloitte Consulting.  On a personal note, after enjoying the single life in Chicago, I met my husband Zane who if you can believe it is from as small of a town in Indiana as Metamora (Delphi).  We have been married 5 years and continued to live in Chicago until last September when my firm moved us out San Francisco!  We will be out here for the next few years and enjoying the perfect weather and Napa Valley!  As of now, no kids, just enjoying traveling and other activities. Special thanks to Holly and Michelle for their 20th reunion efforts!  I unfortunately won't be there as I will be in Chicago receiving my official partnership, I am sorry to miss it! P.S. I wish we could post current photos... thank god I don't look this anymore...

Comments: Sorry to have missed the 20th year reunion.  I have had a very difficult 9 months.  I hope all had a Great time at the 20th year celebration.  For those that may or may not know, my son and I were involved in a very severe accident back in April.  Although this has been very emotional for me, our son was physically harmed.  If you should have an interest in our journey, we do have a website available for you to follow.  I ask that you pray for our son for his full recovery.

Comments: A brief update to let you know we are living in Metamora/Germantown Hills for the first time since I graduated MTHS. Work had us relocating back to the Midwest (from Dallas). Instead of doing Chicago AGAIN, we opted for Central Illinois. Nice to be back here, although surreal at times. Easy to accept that I have aged, but hard to imagine for everyone else. Although everyone else looks terrific. It's especially gratifying to see the success of my old friends -- personally and professionally speaking. So very proud of them, but mostly just glad to see them happy and healthy. God speed. (Updated: 11/2008)

Comments: I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a Master's degree in Business Education in 1990. I taught at EIU for 1 yr. and then at a very small high school (12 graduating seniors) for 1 yr. before moving to Texas. I've been teaching at Business Careers High School in San Antonio since 1992. It blows my mind to think of everything I've learned about technology since I began teaching. Multimedia and Web mastering are my favorite classes to teach.

I am single-again. I have many pets who keep me company as well as keeping me busy. Unlike children, they never grow up. I enjoy working out at the gym, being active at church, and traveling to Metamora to visit my family. My brother, Matt, is probably their biggest football fan.

I missed the 20 year reunion due to my 2nd back surgery. I had a stimular
implanted in my back a year ago -- it has helped me get more of my life back as I can be more active instead of just looking forward to when I could lay down. Although, my nephew thinks I'm a robot. I hope to attend if we have a 25th reunion. Shoot me an email if you'd like. (Updated: 02/2008)

Comments: After high school, I attended McKendree College in Lebanon , Illinois , where I received my B.A. in History in 1988.  Thereafter, I moved to Charleston , South Carolina , and began working as a legal secretary and met my husband, Robert. This June will be our 10th year anniversary.  We have two beautiful children, Thomas, who is six, and Hannah, who is closing in on two.  In 1992, I moved to Los Angeles and obtained my law degree.  I had the pleasure of practicing all different types of law in one of the most busy cities in our country.  What an experience! After almost 5 years, it became obvious to me that my time would be more valuable spent at home with my son.  So, we moved back to South Carolina to the much slower pace of life - and I am totally consumed by taking care of my two little ones :)

Grad Year: 1984
City: Washington, IL

Comments: Hello, my senior year I worked coop and went to I.C.C. 2 years later I had an associate degree in Art. Married for lust and we ran away to Phoenix. In A.Z. I was busy managing a furniture store by the name of This End Up, went to A.S.U. part-time and I have two beautiful children Zachary (1987) Rachel (1989). Divorced in 1990, no more lust, I grew up and he didn't. How often do you hear that. Moved back to Peoria and took over the family business and work with my brother Mike Craig. I was a single mother for 10 years, until I met my husband Ken Klotz. Fast forward to 2008 and we live very comfortably on a serene lake in Washington. Rachel is now 18 and joining the USAF and Zachary is 21 and just got married. I have 2 stepsons Brandon 21 and Jason 24. Soon we will be empty nesters and I am certain in the near future grandparents. High school is a blur.

Comments:  I thought I would update this since we just recently moved back to Colorado after living in Texas for 3 and 1/2 years.  We had a great time in Texas but we really love Colorado so we are happy to be back and look forward to being here hopefully for a very long time.  Both of our kids, Ashley age 11 and Brenden age 8, were born in Colorado so they really feel like they are back at home too.  Because of our move we won't be able to make it back for the reunion in September, but I hope you all have a great time.  I would love to hear how it goes and if there is going to be a reunion booklet I would like to see about getting one to see what everyone has been up to.

Comments: Hi everybody! Right after high school I went to ICC and kept changing my major, because  there were way too many neat things to do with my life.  I also worked at  various part time jobs while at ICC.  I did well enough there that I  received a partial scholarship to Eureka College (I was on the same ten year plan as  Steve Clore) and in '94 received my BS in biology, Magna cum  Laude.  While I was there I worked part-time at the USDA Ag labs in   Peoria , with the same people my mom worked with when she was pregnant  with me.  I also worked at Eureka as a biology lab assistant.  After   Eureka , I attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis .  Talk about  a rough ride!  I put in 5 years worth of schooling in four and graduated  as a Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan in August of 1999.  I received my license to practice in IL in March of 2000, and have been enjoying  helping people ever since.  I am also teaching the lab portion of Human  Anatomy and Physiology at Eureka College and enjoying that,! too.  I  married Dan Sarver (EPCHS '77) in 1993 and we have a little boy, Shaun  William, who will be two in July and is just an absolute delight!  I was  fortunate enough to be able to attend both our 5 year and ten year  reunions, and I am really looking forward to our twentieth, even though  it doesn't feel possible that we should be out of high school for that  long!!!

Comments: I decided last year that I no longer enjoyed teaching. It was actually the politics that did me in, (I don't play nicely!) I'm currently a day care teacher and I love it!!!

Courtney is now 21 and studying to become a nurse. I think she just wants to take care of me when I get older. Wren is 19 and is a welder. I definitely couldn't do that. The BIG NEWS you ask?! Wren and Rachael are expecting my first grandbaby on Dec. 29th!!! I'm so excited!!!

I am planning on moving to Florida the summer of 2013. Me, of all people, moving far away. It will so be worth it!!

I have surveys for the reunion. If you haven't received one, send me an email and I'll get it to you!!! (Updated: 08/2012)

Comments: 20 Years! Sometimes it seems like yesterday.  I currently live in Sunnyland with my 3-1/2 year old son Austin.  He is, by far, the highlight of my life.  I attended ICC and received a certificate in Mechanical Engineering.  I've been at my place of employment for about 6-1/2 years.   I enjoy landscaping, boating and traveling.  I try to attend as many NASCAR races as possible.  My son is a huge Dale Jr fan!  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in September and really liked reading everyones life's adventures.

The kicker is, we moved back to Illinois and decided to live in the Metamora area, because the school is so great and I have so many good memories there too.  It is fun to walk the halls again, (as an adult ) !!!!  See you all soon.

Comments: Hi Everyone, I was in the U.S. Navy 1985-1989 Aviation Structural Mechanic 2, Honorable Discharge, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal. Worked on F-14 Tomcats (the fighter jets you see in "TOPGUN"). Currently working for MACTEC Engineering and Consulting in Peoria,for 15 years now. I am a Land Surveyor doing alot of highway construction layout, and other engineering related tasks as well. Still like to work on just about anything mechanical.

I have had 5 wonderful children : Andy, Cheri, Tiffany, Jesse (son), and Kate. Married Jill Loftus about a week after graduating from high school, divorced about a month after getting out of the Navy. Married Jean Doremus in May of 1991, and are currently separated, in the beginning stages of divorce. (Just can't get it right.) I think I am done marrying women that I went to high school with! And then...the most devastating thing that a person could ever deal with...my son Andy was killed in a car accident on July 17, 2005. If you knew me in high school, you knew him...he was born when I was a Junior...March 16, 1983. I miss him like you could never imagine...trying to pick up the pieces and move on, but it's the toughest thing I have ever had to do. 

He also was a graduate of MTHS in 2001. He graduated from the ICC Cat Tech Diesel Program in May 2005 while working as an intern at the East Peoria Proving Grounds and full - time there as an Experimental Mechanic. He had everything going for him, and new people across the U.S. A friend to everyone... His passion was his 1987 Buick Grand National.

Cheri is attending college at Aurora University as a business major she currently is 19 years old. Tiffany is in her last year of high school at Eureka,IL she is currently 17 and is also working on becoming a CNA, planning to continue her education through OSF St. Francis in Peoria,IL. Jesse is 11 years old and is into just about everything. Kate is 7 years old and, like most youngest, is spoiled rotten! She steals my heart! Take care everyone, Jeff.

About 110 people (including spouses) showed up. A few people have already volunteered to organize a 25 year reunion so looks like we will get together again in 2009 (wow, that's scary!). My son, Jeremy, is finishing up kindergarten this May (2005).  T-Ball is also underway with my husband (Dale) as the coach. Not sure who is more excited to be playing, Jeremy or daddy! 

My husband played baseball in high school and college so he is enjoying it! My daughter, Lyndsey, will be going to 3 yr old preschool in the Fall (2005).  She will be dancing in her 1st recital in June. I am still at home and keeping busy volunteering at Jeremy's school. I will probably go back to work (part time) in a couple of years when Lyndsey goes to Kindergarten. Hey, can't let that U of I degree go to waste!!  If any of you see a classmate that hasn't posted their info on this website, please encourage them to do so!! It would be great to hear from more people.

Comments: I can't believe it has been 20 years already.  It just seems like the other day I was walking those halls of Metamora High School dreaming of the day I would finally be an adult and out in the real world.  I must say I do have days I wish I could go back in time when my biggest worry was what to wear and what big plans we had for the weekend.  I married my husband Doug in 1991 & we now have two wonderful children Josh (11 years) & Kelsey (6 years) who keep us very busy.  I have worked for the past 17 years as a loan coordinator at a local credit union.  I'm sorry to say but I have lost touch with my close friends from high school (moving away, marriage, family etc.) but you have not been forgotten.  I'm sorry I will not be able to attend the reunion but I hope everyone has a great time!

Comments: After graduating from high school I attended numerous colleges and finally finished my education at ISU.  College was not one of my favorite things!  In 1988 I married my best friend and the most wonderful man in the world!  This year we will celebrate 16 years.  Three days before our wedding we moved our possessions into our first home that we built on our 120 acre property in Fairview , Illinois .  Three years later a senator from Chicago bought all the bordering property and decided to put in a mega-landfill surrounding  our property.  He was forced to purchase our property and we bought a piece of property outside Chillicothe , Illinois in 1991.  We built our second home on this piece of property.Between raising whitetail deer, horses and operating our construction related business we were very busy.  In 1997 we sold our business, even though it  was not being marketed for sale, and relaxed, momentarily.After a devastating illness ran through our herd of deer we sold those  that were not sick and donated two of the breeder bucks to Wildlife Prairie Park .  We had always wanted to live in the "Northwoods" of Wisconsin so we bought  a piece of property with a lovely home on it and moved.  We currently own a log furniture and antler lighting manufacturing corporation in Phillips , Wisconsin .  We have no two legged children, by choice, but we do have 2 Quarter horses, 2 cats and a yellow lab that travels everywhere with us in our 40' motor coach.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend the reunion because we will be hunting elk in Montana in September followed by a Moose hunt in Maine .  Life is great and we are trying our darndest to live it to the fullest!

Comments: Hi all- Wow, it's been awhile.  Where has the time gone.  Sorry to have missed the 20 year reunion.  I didn't hear anything about it until afterwords-not sure how that happened.  It's been a busy 20 years!  In 1986 I married the sweetest man I ever met, Kim Riggenbach(EPCHS class '81).  Since then we have lived in East Peoria most of the time.  After visiting one of our church's orphanages in Brazil we decided to live there.  We experienced many problems during my pregnancy with Abigail and needed to return to the States for her birth and have since decided to stay here.  Currently, our 6 kids keep us very busy-Hannah-15, Ruthie-13, Christine-10, Abigail-7, Matthew-3, and Benjamin-5 months.  Kim works for the E. Peoria Fire Dept. and is one of the pastors at our church.  One of our favorite jobs at church is the pre-marital classes we teach.  We want everyone to enjoy being married as much as we do!  We enjoy being foster parents, most of the time, and received a wonderful "present" from it - Matthew.  He came to us at birth and we were able to adopt him (our second adoption-we adopted Chrissy when she was 3) when he was 18 months old.  He is a special needs child who has brought great challenges, but even greater joy to our lives.  In my spare time, we have a small catering business- A Few Fruitcakes - that fills up whatever time it can between our children's schedules.  If you are involved in pre-hospital emergency medicine in our area and take your continuing-ed. classes through the OSF EMS office, we will most likely be the ones feeding you or teaching you since we do that there also.

Comments: I missed all of my friends from MTHS and graduating fromt he only school I ever knew.  Our family moved to Dallas, TX the summer between my junior and senior year.  I have enjoyed traveling the southeast, working in Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations for the past 20 years and I am currently spending time at home raising our two children Emma and Anson.  Motherhood is much more work than a stressful career hands-down.  But I love the rewards too!

Hope to hear from a few of you still out there.  I've been in touch with many of you over the years and it is wonderful.  Hope life has been good to all.  Take care. (Updated: 09/2009)

Comments: Hello all, I figured it had been 5 years since I provided an update, so hear it goes! I still live in Washington DC area and recently just completed a stint as a senior staffer to Governor Sarah Palin for the McCain-Palin 2008 campaign. Prior to that I was with the federal government directing refugee issues for the Department of Health and Human Services. I also had the legal guardianship of all unaccompanied illegal aliens under the age of 18 in the US, so if anyone ever has any questions about immigration, I am your gal. I still get back to central Illinois from time to time and would love to connect with folks who are in the area. My son Heath is now a second grader and it is amazing how time flies! I still run quite a bit and am taking up a new hobby--kenjutsu-- samurai sword fighting! Hope everyone is well and curious if there will be a 25th reunion?
