Comments: Hello everyone. After graduating from Bradley University, I moved to the burbs of Chicago. I am married and have two awesome boys. I started my own Graphic Design Studio and it is going great. I don't make it back home too often, mostly around the holidays. I would be happy to hear from any of you.

I thought it was time to update this.  So many of you are friends with me on Facebook but for those who are not, I have lived in FL since I moved from Metamora in 1986.  I was married and had 3 daughters.  Tiffany and Brittany (1990) are now 24 and Raven (1993) is 21.  Their dad was killed by a drunk driver.  I was remarried but divorced a few years back.  I now live with an amazing man named Paul.  Brittany gave me a gorgeous grandson Malachi (2011) who is now 3 years old.  I haven't been able to work for a few years now due to some health issues, so I take care of things at the house while Paul works.  Hopefully we will be able to visit soon and see some of my old friends!!

I have a Master's degree and currently am employed by Midstate College in Peoria as their Director of Business Administration. I've never managed to make it to the altar..haha. But, I do have a handsome four-year old son; Brock. I'd never change that for anything. I love being a mom and I always wanted a son. We currently live in Eureka and just love the small town. It was nice reading about each of you and your families. Feel free to e-mail if you would like jbullock@midstate.edu Take care everyone. (Updated 08/2009)

Since then, I've spent much of my career in IT consulting and am currently an enterprise architect for Great American Insurance in Cincinnati, OH. I have two boys--my oldest just turned 21 and my younger son will be 17 next week! I've divorced and remarried since high school (once or twice). My wife, Deborah, and I currently live in Mason, OH. I still have family in the Peoria area and travel back often. Drop me a line--it would be great to hear from you and get in touch. (Updated: 06/2008)

I returned to the Peoria area and am now married to a wonderful man named Omar. I have 3 kids, Josh 15, Jordynne 10 and Ana 4. I decided to go back to school and just graduated from Bradley in May with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education and a Spanish concentration.

Comments: Still married to my fairly-human male person (Phil) since 1990. Two daughters (Francesca born in 1992) and Rhiannon (1995-1999) and one son (Elijah born in 2001). I have worked as Periodicals Librarian/Book Club Queen/Display Case Coordinator at the Washington District Library since 2007. I still read romance novels and eat bon bons in my spare time. I have to whisper the word "Metamora" whenever people in town ask me where I'm from. I'm still a Redbird at heart, but I own an awful lot of orange and black clothing.

Comments: I was married in 1993 to MTHS graduate, Debby Kuni (1985). We have lived all over, but currently reside in Wisconsin near Minneapolis, MN. We have three lovely children: Wyatt (8), Wesley (6), and William (2). I enjoy working for Sun Country Airlines as a pilot on the B737. After 9/11, it looked like Sun Country might shut down (which it did three months later), so I started my own company, JETPUBS Inc. We provide training materials and manuals services to airlines around the world and currently have 68 airlines that we work for. Sun Country managed to get back on its feet shortly after the shutdown and I went back to work for them (in addition to running JETPUBS) in September of 2004. I completed my fourth marathon (Chicago) last October and succeeded in breaking the four hour barrier! This fall I will be running the Loch Ness Marathon as I begin my next marathon goal of running one marathon on each continent. Unfortunately that is the same weekend as our reunion, so it looks like I will miss it this time. Hope to see you all at the 25th. Take care.

Comments: Is our 20 year really coming up?!? Married to Beth Johnson (MTHS '86). Two daughters Meika 13 and Brianna 9. Spent two years in sunny San Diego before moving back to Central Illinois in '92. Worked 5 years with the Washington Police Dept where I tried to keep Erin Poehlman out of trouble!! (just kidding Erin, love ya) Like Erin I refused to become a panther so I moved west. The past 8+ years I've been with the East Peoria PD where I'm now a sergeant. I make it up to Malone for most of the home games and actually found out about this site from Roemer and Damery when I ran into them at SHG for the playoff game. Looking forward to seeing "old" friends at the reunion.

Comments: I live in Aurora with my wife Deedee and sons Matt (11) and Kevin (9). During the day I work as an IT supervisor and also do some sports writing with the Aurora Beacon News, where I cover a lot of high school and some pro sports. I also do some freelance work, most notably with Chicago Athlete magazine. Other than that I shuttle my kids to all of their activities and still play a little golf. But mostly I run, I've done six marathons (including the carnage that was Chicago 2007 -- but I finished) and last month Wally Hines and I competed with a team in a 207-mile relay where we won our age group.

It was great seeing everyone at the reunion. Thanks to Roger and all else who were involved in putting it together. Looking forward to getting together again sometime soon.

Comments: Many of you know that I married Scott Morse from our graduating class. We married in 1999 and have have three beautiful children, Sarah (2000), Katie (2002) and Matt (2004). We sure are busy! Scott has been a domestic engineer (stay home dad) from day one. He is much better at it , than me! I am still in the real estate business (as I was back in high school co-op) and love it. I'd be happy to help anyone in the tri-county area! We live in Germantown, about a half mile from the house I grew up in. In our spare time, we enjoy our 10 acre retreat with pond and outbuilding. Scott loves to play on his John Deere tractor. Who would have guessed we'd ever be married, since we never spoke in high school. Thanks goes to Jarrod Love for hooking us up!

Comments: Hello everyone, ya I'm another one that moved back. After school I married Kirsten Harpman (Spalding grad) in June '88 and moved to St. Louis for about a year. We moved back to Peoria and lived there until spring 2001 when we bought the house that Tim Rodgers grew up in, it's nice to be back. We have 3 boys Brandon (dob 7-17-90), Bryan (dob 9-23-92) and Braden (dob 7-18-01), nothing like 9 years between the youngest two :).It's hard to believe that in 2004 our oldest will be a freshmen in the same school I graduated from. We would be happy to hear from you so give us a call or stop by if you are in town.

Comments: Wow has it been along time! I cannot believe its been 20 yrs, I sure don't feel 20 yrs older but I look a lot different than I used to as I am sure we all do. Just a bit about myself, Marital Status: Single, however I have a long time girlfriend. Children: None, well I have a dog... does that count? I am currently living in Florida about 30 miles east of Tampa, I moved to Florida in '98 w/ my mother after my father passed away as it was her wish to continue to live out her and dads retirement dream, this move allowed me to go back to school and get my AS degree in Electronics Engineering which I received in 2002, after graduating I was hired by Tampa Electric Company in Tampa, Fl. I work in the Engineering Dept. as an engineer in a satellite office which is one of several operation centers for Tampa Electric where I design the electrical grid to provide electrical power to some 650,000 customers throughout West Central Florida. Basically I design the aerial power lines you see as you are driving down the road as well as the underground systems in many subdivisions. Within this line of work I also deal w/ the hurricanes after affects trying to get the power grid back on line once the storm is over which may entail traveling to different states or w/in the state of Florida working in conjunction w/ other utilities who request our help as I did in 2004 and 2005's hurricane seasons. I saw a lot of devastation during this time, fortunately my mother and I both came through w/out any damage to our homes, but as bad as the devastation can be, helping those that need it is very gratifying and the hours are long. Well I think I have rambled on long enough so I will refrain from any further remarks.

Comments: Ten years ago I married Lisa Vollrath.  We now have three children and much to our surprise we are ending up in Washburn (of all places) after five years in Macomb, four in St. Louis, one in Michigan, and one year overseas in a country called Kazakstan.  After completing my Masters of Divinity at Concordia St. Louis, Lisa and I volunteered to go overseas as missionaries.  When my health took a serious turn, we returned to the United States.  I was recently called to be and accepted the position of pastor for St. John's Lutheran Church in Washburn and Trinity Lutheran Church in LaRose.

Comments: Hello everybody! It's incredible how quickly ten years can go by and how much can occur in that time frame. Since I saw most of you last, I have become mother to two fantastic children: Marissa, age 9, and Christopher, age 7and 3/4. My husband, Pete, is a great guy and is currently working on two restoration projects- a 1947 Ford pick-up truck and a 1962 Mercury Comet. Both are being revamped as hot rods so perhaps we will see some of you around at the different car shows. I am still a practicing Respiratory Therapist and when I am not busy working, being a mother/wife, etc, I am a Girl Scout Leader. This is my fourth year with the girls and I have to say, one of the best things I have ever gotten involved with. I am looking forward to our 20th reunion. Hope to see you there!

Comments: I enlisted in the Air National Guard in Feb. of '87 - along with Dan Fandel. After finishing basic training, tech school & all that goes with that, I attended ICC and then SIU graduating a little later than planned due to training & activation for Desert Storm. Dan was my roommate during our time at SIU. Graduated in '93 as an Electrical Engineer. I worked briefly in Peoria until I found a job in northern IL at Motorola. Moved to WI in Jan. '94 to work for MOT (Wireless IC design). Married Suellen Tatum 10/94. Kids - Alexander 11/97, Samantha 11/01 & Jake 2/04. With my 10 year mark in the Guard came the decision to stay for the long haul & get commissioned, or get out. I stayed and am a Major in charge of Health Services Administration in my Ft. Worth unit. Just received my "20 year letter". We moved to TX in Dec. '04 mostly as my job location at MOT moved deeper into IL which put my commute up to 1.5 hrs. one-way on a regular basis. It was time for a change. I was able to relocate both.

Still following Redbird football although we don't get to but about one game a year now. I check the PJS & IHSA websites for info every Saturday morning - & our dads usually send us pretty good emails about the games.

Comments: OMG….it cannot be 20 years already!! I hope people are dong well and are happy! I am still having a blast working for the University of Illinois at Springfield in the House Department. As a Resident Director I supervise the area in which we have students living in 96 (we have grown) Townhouses. I have a collection of beer bongs in my office and a keg under my desk from situations my RA’s have had to deal with….my job is NEVER boring. My daughter Riley is now 8 going on 13 and is enjoying 3rd grad. WHO KNEW 3rd grade math was so complicated?? Riley and I added a new member to our family this year in the form of a cockapoo puppy named Harley Davidson Oehlwein. He keeps us laughing! I am looking forward to seeing “old” friends at our Reunion this weekend. I am connected to email 24/7 for my job, so drop me one if you have time. I wish everyone great successes for the future! I have such great memories of (most) people from MTHS!

Class of: 1987
Address: 537 Gentle Breeze Dr., St. Peters, MO 63376

Comments: Hey there everybody! It's amazing to me so much time has passed already. After high school I went to ICC and then attended University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy (UIC-COP) and graduated with my doctorate in 1995. I moved down to St. Louis and did a post-graduate residency at St. Louis University Hospital (emphasis: pediatrics/oncology) and met my husband, Harold. We tied the knot in 1998 and have two awesome boys - Quinn (5/01) and Evan (10/03).

Harold works at the corporate office for Verizon Business in Weldon Springs but still remains pretty busy with the family business of Zobel Construction. We just sold our house in St. Peters and are now in the process of building our new house in Warrenton, MO. I can't wait! We're going to be building on a wooded plot of land that includes a lake. Warrenton reminds me so much of Metamora & Germantown Hills - I continually joke with Harold that I have been and always will be a country girl at heart. We love to travel ("Roadtrip!") and I wish I could come to the 20th reunion but I will be covering that weekend for my partner's vacation. I found out about the reunion a little to late this time but hopefully I can make it to the next one --> 25th?

Comments: Hi, I've finally decided to join the 21st century!!!!:)  I've been sort of computer phobic ever since my wonderful experience at MTHS almost 18 years ago.  In case you're wondering what I've been up to since then, I have happily married for 13 years come this January.  I am also a mother of two boys, Zachary(9) and Joshua(4) as of Dec. 2004.  Currently, I am a stay at home mom with no life, except for watching endless Sponge Bob episodes and Wiggles DVDs!  I am currently working on producing my third child, so that I can be stuck in my house for yet another five years or so.:)  I currently live in unincorporated Chicago Heights, IL, but am in the process of purchasing  my first home with my hubby.  We hope to move by this spring at the latest.  For those of you who remember me as shy and timid in high school, you are in for a big surprise!!!  I have finally arrived, as they say.  Anyway, I would love to here from some of my fellow classmates from waaaaaayyyy back i! n 1987!

Comments: 20 YEARS??!! Ya gotta be JOKING me!! Most of y'all know I married Scott Nicholson from our class (10/94). We have 3 kids - Alexander (11/97), Samantha (11/01) & Jake (02/04). Never thought I'd see the day when I had 3 kids!! After graduating from the "international school of shopping and eating lunch out with friends" (that would be ICC - and I didn't graduate), I landed a job with Kohl's in Jan. of '91 as a Visual Merchandiser. I was promoted to a district level and spent my time in central IL & central/northern IN. Scott moved to WI before we got married to take a job with Motorola in northern IL. I stepped out of my position and into the Milwaukee Market where Kohl's is based. I spent several years traveling all over the country opening new stores & training new store visuals. We lived up there for 10 years - Scott at MOT & me at Kohl's. Over the years, I have whittled my hours back to PT so I can be home with our kids (I am STILL with Kohl's!). We moved to TX in December '04 for Scott.

Comments: After high school, I graduated from ICC in 1990 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I moved to Port Townsend, WA in 1992 and enjoyed flying small aircraft and hiking the Olympic Mountains. I married my college sweetheart, Manny Elias in 1994 from Tucson, AZ. We have two children Raven (born 5-29-97) and Alex (born 2-13-02). After thirteen years of rain in the Pacific Northwest, we decided it was time for some sunshine. We moved to Tucson in 2005(talk about polar opposite climates). Now, I work part time as a Dental Hygienist, run kids to all of their practices and social events, attend classes on-line to complete my BS, and attend real estate school. I am going to join my husband in a career that is less painful to my neck and hands. I regularly visit my family in Germantown Hills and would like to catch up with all of you at the next reunion.

Comments: I thought I should update my profile, since it's considerably out of date. I am still a stay-at-home mom, living in Pekin with my husband and three children. Jack (4/95), Max (11/00), Betsy (01/02), and one more coming in June 07, which we found out recently will be a girl. Fun, fun! Since this will be the last baby, I'm sure she will be spoiled rotten. Other than that, I stay busy with school activities and finding new and interesting things to cook. Hope all is well with everyone!

Comments: Sorry I missed the reunion--hope everyone had a great time. I thought it was time I updated my profile here. Still in the Peoria area, still running and now training for the January 2009 Rock-n-Roll Marathon in Arizona through Team In Training. Still writing too. I have 4 novels under my belt and 2 of them have attracted agent interest. Of course, this is just equivalent to getting your little toe in the door of the writing world! I run a local writers' group called Wordsmiths by Night and co-host Aesthetic Underground open mic at The Contemporary Art Center. After 5 years of homeschooling, my daughter Jacie (9/12/90) went back to public school, and is currently a senior at Limestone where she's in Chamber Singers & the art guild. She'll most likely be going to The Art Institute of Chicago. I'm a Project Coordinator/Exec Assistant at LR Nelson. My husband maintains his general law practice in Peoria and we still have our litigation consulting business too. Never a dull moment around here...

I married Mike Eddy, a 1986 Washington High School graduate, and we now have 4 wonderful kids, Heather, 18, Andrew,14, Sean, 3 1/2, and Ethan, 9 months. I worked retail for 10 years then went back to school. I have been a respiratory therapist for 8 years at Iowa Methodist/Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines and really enjoy the day to day changes. I am also part of D.M.A.T., a disaster medical assistance team, not much action here in Iowa (what a surprise), but they have assisted nationally. I stay very busy, working full time nights and running my Ebay store! Hope to see some of you at the reunion!

Comments: Just thought I'd post a few things that I've been up to since high school. I received my MBA from the University of Illinois and went to work in NY as an investment banker. I married an awesome woman (Jennifer Polischuk) from Crystal Lake (near Chicago)and we have a son, Connor, who was born in Manhattan a few weeks before 9/11. Bob Summers and Ed Sullivan were in the wedding party and lots of high school friends came to the wedding. I'm taking some time off from the rat race and going to school again at Columbia University, studying financial mathematics. I make it back every couple of years to see old friends and golf. I've found that most of my best friends are from Metamora. Also, I've noticed that many people I've met seem to know where Metamora is, or know someone who is from there...strange. My wife's Mom taught at MGS a year before I started there (2nd grade). Anyway, send me an e-mail sometime. Or if you're in NY, stop by. I know of some great steak places.
