Comments:ááGreetings Redbirds. I never married, but my very happy family consists of Fanny the cat, Max the cocker spaniel, Maggie the schnauzer, & Bonnie the roommate.áá After graduation, I went to ICC for 2 years then played softball at West Texas State (now West Texas A&M) in Canyon, Tx. After that I was hired by the Amarillo school district as a teacher/coach. I taught English & PE & coached for 4 years, 2 at junior high, 2 in high school. Found I loved teaching English most of all, so quit coaching & taught English another 6 years. Then had opportunity to be Curriculum & Instruction Specialist for my high school for 7 years.

Last year I received my Masters of Education degree plus Mid-Management (Principalship) Certification. This year I am an Assistant-Prinicipal at Fannin Middle School (grades 6, 7, 8). With middle school kids there is never a dull moment! But I love it more than I ever imagined. Should have lots of good material when I pick up serious writing again.

My hobbies are going to the gym, reading, writing/journaling, building things for the house (platform bed, bookshelf, tile-top kitchen table), walking the dogs, & summer travel.

Two of my goals for the future: becoming a principal & attending the next class reunion so I can hug the necks of all you guys who filled my teenage years.
I wish you all God's Love & Light.

PS- I posted my photo so we could all have a good laugh!

Comments: Hello classmates -- many of you didn't know me in high school, as I was not involved in any extracurricular activities, so I'm not sure how I got involved with the 25 & 30 year reunions -- probably my inability to say no, which I'm now learning to do! So if anyone wants a 35 year celebration, please contact me for the for the info.

I've been happily single since 1990 and raised two sons, Tim and Jason. I am business manager for The Antioch Group (Christian counseling and psychological practice) since 1997. I've always lived in the East Peoria area, but often think about heading south someday. The highlight of my life was when Jason & I went to Athens, Greece in 2004 to see Tim represent the USA in the summer Olympics' Track & Field 5000 Meter event!

Address: 1953 Knox Rd., Victoria,á IL 61485

Comments: I'm the one who was out in the grove smoking while my brother (Bob)was setting track records.

Area.á I've been with the state now since '78 and am currently Site Superintendent at Snakeden Hollow Fish & Wildlife Area near Victoria, about 40 miles NW of Peoria.

Comments: My status was a bit dated so I figured I better do an update! I was very quiet in high school so you might not remember me. I'm not as quiet any more - but still quieter than my husband, Rob. He's a nationally known psychic and paranormal investigator who's appeared on several TV and radio shows, as well as having a part in his brother's movie, The Showdown. He also wrote a book, Haunted No More. As you can tell, I'm very proud of him!

I'm the Senior Project Coordinator at PJ Hoerr where I've worked since 1990. As of now (March '11), I'm on leave while I get treatment for carcinoid cancer. Even though it's already metastized to my liver, it's a slow-growing cancer and Dr. Veeder says we can stay ahead of it. Shortly after my diagnosis, my husband was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and faces surgery. Needless to say, 2011 will be a year of challenges. But with the Lord's help, we'll make it through this.

We have two sons, Jason (b: '78) and Brad (b: '79). They're both married and have given us three beautiful grandchildren: Brad & Kelly gave us LeAnne (b: '00) and Katie (b: '04), Jason & Jamie had Brennan in 2007. Jason is a journeyman carpenter and Brad is a 911 dispatcher for Bloomington/Normal. We're thrilled they're all living back in the area!

I haven't made it to any of the reunions yet, but maybe the next one?? It would be good to see all of you! (Updated: 03/2011)
