Comments: Hello Class of 2000! After High School I went to Illinois State U where I achieved my Bachelor's in Arts. Also since High School I met up with Andy Grabenstetter (Thanks, Facebook) and we are now married (October 31st, 2008) and we have two beautiful daughters - Ellenore 11-26-08 and Georgia 6-1-10. We moved back to the Ole Germantown Hills stomping grounds so that our kids can go to the same school that I did. Sorry, St Mary's folks. :) I am currently working as a full time mommy, and when it comes up - seasonally as a District Manager for the Spirit Halloween chain of stores.

Sorry that we didn't make it to the 10 Year Reunion. I was working as a manager at the Halloween Chain at the time and could not get away!

Hope everyone is doing well and achieving their dreams and aspirations, whether they are the same as when you were 18, or completely different one. (Updated: 08/2011)

Comments: Hi guys! I got married to my husband CJ in October of '07. We live in a Kansas City suburb. I work as a company sales rep for an Audio/Video company based out of California. My husband owns a remodeling company. We don't do too much and feel really old already. We are SO happy though! We go to all the KC Chiefs games, and travel around the country quite a bit. That's about it. No babies for awhile...at least that's the plan. Hope everyone is doing great! (Updated: 02/2008)

Comments: Hello! I have been reading all the wonderful things everyone has been doing for years now. I finally decided to change the "ICC is great" post. Whoever put that up for me, thanks:) I still think it was you Krissy.

Anyways, once I left ICC, I began working for the billing office at OSF. After 2 years of pure cubicle boredom, I decided it was time to get back to the books. I commuted to ISU for 2 years and now teach 3rd grade spec ed at Peoria Heights Grade School. I got married this past July (09) to Mark. We live in Mackinaw, which works out great for us now. No kids soon but hopefully in the future. Take care! (Updated: 11/2009)

Comments:  After summer vacation I joined the Unites States Air Force.  My first day of basic training was on September first.  I was in San Antonio Texas .  I graduated that on October 13th.  Then I went to Witchita Falls Texas at Sheppard AFB.  I graduated there and am currently at my 1st permanent duty station.  I am in South Carolina at Shaw AFB.  It is by the wonderful town of Sumter .  It is just like back home... you have to drive 30 minutes to get there and it sucks when you do.  At least the weather is nice here.  I work on generators and arresting barriers... those are the cables that catch "injured" fighter planes... kinda like on a naval aircraft carrier.  This summer I will probably be deployed to Saudi Arabia for 3 months, then after that who knows where they will send me.

Comments: After high school I started an internship at Caterpillar and went to ICC(I have my degree in Engineering). I ended up working at Caterpillar for 5 years before I left. I then moved to Morton (in 2005) and started working at a small Computer Software Company (CSE Software Inc.) where I am a Project Manager in Quality Control and have been working there ever since. Just this year (2009) we started another company (Simformotion) which develops 3D simulated environments for people to train on Caterpillar equipment. So, I play "video games" all day and make sure our products are ready for the customers.

During all of this I managed to meet back up with Leslie Baldwin and we got married on Halloween in 2008. We have 1 daughter (Ellenore Louise) who just celebrated her first birthday on Thanksgiving this year. We are expecting our next kid in June 2010! We lived in Morton for a little while and bought a house in Germantown in 2008.

It will be nice to see everyone again at our reunion. Take care. (Updated: 12/2009)

Comments: What's up people? I'm doing good. I live in the St. Louismetro area now. I like it WAY better than up there, though I miss it a little. (There's WAY more to do down here) I work full time during the day at a butcher shop. And I'm in a band that takes up a lot of my time in the nights. We're doing really well. That's about it. There's been hard times and lots of good times since High School, but everything's cool. College sucks. My dad always said "don't knock something til you try it." Well, I've been to college 3 separate times..and they all suck. I'm doing great without it, so who cares?

He is a healthy, happy baby! I am a first grade teacher at LGS in Washington , IL . This is my 3rd year teaching in the district. Being a mother, wife, and teacher keep me busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Comments: Hey y'all!  I graduated from SIUC in May of 2004 with a degree in aviation management and flight.  During the last few years of school, I worked as a flight instructor, teaching fellow SIU students.  Now I'm an airline pilot flying for American Eagle.  I am based at the Dallas / Fort Worth international airport.  I live down here in Texas , but I enjoy my travel benefits, and get to travel on my days off from time to time.  It's been a long time since I heard from many of you, so feel free to get ahold of me!  Here's wishing you all good health, happiness, and success!

Comments: Hi there.  I'm still trying to finish up my degree in Advertising and Integrated Marketing Communications and double minoring in Psychology and Sociology.  It really doesn't help to change your major in the middle of your Junior year.  But I'll be done with school forever in May of '06.  I really like college but I'm definitely ready to be done with it.  I'm also still with Nick; it will be 6 years this August.  It's crazy that we've been out of MTHS for 5 years but it might be good to see some old familiar faces again.

Comments: Seems like only yesterday we were seniors in high school.  I have spent the last three and a half years here at Saint Louis University pursuing a Masters in Physical Therapy.  It was a bit of a shock moving from my small hometown to the middle of a city, but I couldn't be happier.   I still keep in touch with a few close friends from high school, but would love to here from more of you.  I make the occasional return to Metamora, but if anyone is ever in the STL give me a call!!!

Comments: I actually forgot about this Alumni thing! Crazy...Anywho, its January 2009 when I am writing this...I went to ISU for 4 years then tried to stay in the Bloomington area for a year. I ended up miserable so I threw a dart at a map and it landed on Charleston, SC. I picked up and moved to the Charleston area late August 2005. I love it here...everything from the southern hospitality to the warm weather to living 10 minutes from the beach to the historical places to the palm trees outside my window. I love it all! I am a nurse on a Postpartum/Nursery Unit at a hospital in the area. I love those newborn babies!

After only 4 1/2 months of dating, I got engaged to my finance, Alex, on August 16, 2008. He left for Iraq August 22, 2008. He will hopefully be back around April 1st so we can start the rest of our lives together:) We are planning an August 7, 2009 wedding here in the Charleston area with a reception back in M-town on Augus 15. I hope everyone is doing well! It's crazy to read where everyone is in life these days. Feel free to contact me! I have myspace as well. I love hearing from anyone:) I hope you are all happy and I hope life brings you all great things.

A point to ponder: If Donald Duck doesnt wear pants, then why does he put a towel on when he gets out of the shower? (Updated: 01/2009)
