Comments: I entered Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in the fall of 1989.  I graduated from the university with a BA in photography, 1993.  During this time (1990), I got married.  In 1991, I took the fall off of college and moved to Key West for 6 months.  I got divorced 2 years later and got out (thank God) of an abusive marriage.  After graduating from SIUC, I moved to Los Angeles, CA.  I am now a freelance photographer and writer.  But my "real" job is being a manager in a pro photo lab.  Hey, it pays my bills.  I am in a relationship right now.  We have 2 kitties (Jake & Kiddo).  No children and I'm not looking to get married at this time.  I'm not sure how much longer I'll be in Los Angeles, maybe a year or maybe forever.  But we do have an extra bedroom for any guests.  Please call, write, or email if you will be coming out this way.  We always welcome visitors!

Comments: I hope this gets posted even though I left MTHS after my junior year.  I moved to Chicago in '88 and graduated from Batavia High.  In '91 I moved with my parents to Nashville, Tn.  I started college then but, unfortunately dropped out.  My parents moved back to Metamora in '96, but I elected to stay in Nashville.  I love living down here but, I have recently considered moving back to Illinois and finishing my college degree.  If any of my classmates would like to contact me via e-mail please feel free.  I would love to hear from you!

Comments: I'm currently single and living in North Plainfield, but would love to move back home. My son keeps me busy with his football, soccer and track games/meets. He plays for the PJC travel football team...training him early to hopefully one day be a Metamora Redbird. Only 2 more years left to talk him into moving to Redbird country....not going so well, but I have faith. We have a cat named Boots who actually plays "fetch". No joke! Anyways, glad to catch up with so many of you thru Facebook! It's been some great times and late nights. (Updated: 09/2009)

Comments: I had to look back at our 10 year reunion book to refresh my memory on where I was at that time. I was working full time as an RN in Rockford, IL and dating my now husband Bill who worked in Chicago at WTMX. A year after our 10 year reunion, I accepted a position as an RN in the OR at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA. I got engaged in 2003, and Bill and I married at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas in 2004. His job has led us all over the country. In February of 2005, we lived in Denver, CO. My husband then accepted a position at a radio station in San Francisco in March of 05. Just 5 months later in August of 05, we moved to Orlando, FL and lived in several different locations around that area until August of 2008, when my husband took his current job at KNIX country in Phoenix, AZ.

After marrying, and due to so much relocating, I put my nursing career on hold (though I still hold and maintain a California nursing license). I had my first child, Liam, in October of 2008. He will be 11 months old at the time of our 20th reunion. So many changes have occurred for me, and I'm sure for all of you as well, since graduation (college, careers, kids, moving, loss, and so many other reasons) that I must admit, much of high school has become a blur. I'll probably have to open my yearbook just to refresh my memory on who 1/2 the class is ;) God bless everyone of you from the class of '89. I hope the last 20 years has treated you well, and if not, that the years to follow will be what you hope them to be. (Updated: 09/2009)

Comments: I am no longer a Metamoron!!!  My husband, Bill, my son, Rylan, and I moved to Phoenix, AZ in December 2003.  We now live about 15 miles SE of Phoenix in a new city called Maricopa.  Growth is unbelievable out here.  I have met soooo many people from the Midwest.  We decided to make a life change and take our chances.  We love it!!!  I wonder if anyone is interested in taking time for a class reunion.  I still have the funds from last reunion.  I stay at home, but am involved in a chapter of the International MOMS club.  Keeps us busy.  I also make scrapbooks for people and started a home decorating business.  Opportunity is all around me.  Hope to here from some of you.

Comments: I have lived in Colorado for the past 14 years. I have a 10 year old daughter from my first marriage Courtney Jane (CJ). I have been with my current significant other for the last eight years. We live with her daughter and two labs (Cubbie and Wrigley). I have been a contractor for Comcast Cable for the duration of living here in CO. I have a posting on classmates.com with some pics if anyone is interested as well as a myspace with more recent pics. I don't get back home near as much as I would like. But I was there for the Redbird victory over Morris. My dad still lives in Peoria with his wife. As some of you may know I lost my mother in 2004 to a sailing accident. I still keep in touch with Darin Alig on a regular basis, but have lost touch with most others. Don't hesitate to send an email my way, I will be sure to return it. I hope all is well with my fellow classmates and look forward to seeing you at our 20th reunion.

Comments: I attended ICC after MTHS, but didn't finish - didn't really have a career vision at the time. I worked on the river as a deckhand for a couple of years where I traveled over 3000 miles of the Mississippi river system. In 1995, I married Kathy Moore. I began working for Multax Corporation in Morton as a machinist in 1996 where I am still employed today. We have 3 great daughters: Morgan, 13; Jenna, 10; Kaitlyn, 4; a dog, Skippy; cat, Sara; and 2 guinnea pigs the kids love (and I hate), Sunday and Snoppy. I built my own home near Metamora in 2004. I went back to ICC in 2012 to work toward a manufacturing technology degree. How time flies...seems like MTHS graduation was just a few years ago! (Updated: 11/2012)

Comments: I have been married for 4 years to an amazing man and I've never been happier. My husband's name is Bill and he's an Engineering Manager at Caterpillar. I'm still a stay at home mom and loving it...my family certainly keeps me on my toes and besides the usual mom duties, I'm also very involved in the kids' activities! Brianna is 15 now and is just a few months away from getting her driving license.  She's turning out to be such a wonderful, beautiful, talented young lady and I couldn't be more proud of her. She's into band and wants to be a band director. Lucas is now 11 and he's our little Metamora
football player. He LOVES it, so I imagine that he'll be on the field playing for the high school in another three years. Feel free to email me if you would like to catch up. (Updated: 08/2010)

Comments: I attended ISU where I got my bachelor's degree in Theater. (not real useful!) Then got married to my wonderful husband Mark and moved to the east coast.  We spent most of our time living in and around Philadelphia, PA where I worked as assistant to the president of a television, video and audio studio and as producer for a local television talk show.  It was a very stressful job, so in 2000, when my husband and I had the opportunity to come back home and take over my father's business we jumped at it.  We now own and operate the two Tuffy Auto Service Centers in the area (one in Peoria and one in Bloomington) and are having a ball!  In addition I teach part time at my mom's dance studio, Merrilee Studios, in Metamora.

City: Berlin, Germany

Comments: Happy Anniversary, 89ers. 20 years ago I was a foreign exchange student at MTHS from Berlin, Germany. It's been a long time but I still remember having a great time with all of you. Even though I have joined you only for the last year of high school you made me feel like being at home. Thanks for that.

Since I have returned I finished high school in Germany followed by a couple years at college, studying architecture. For more than ten years I was working in the film business as a location manager but I had to stop because my son Luis was born in 2004. Since that day I am running my own business as a graphic designer. This July (2009) I'm expecting my second child, a girl.

By the way my last name has changed, it's Alexander Munoz Gonzalez now. Hope everyone is doing fine and enjoying life. Cheers, Alex (Updated 03/2009)

Comments: Hi everyone! Doesn't feel like it has been 20 years since our senior year! After high school, I got married and had 2 daughters, Sabrina (17) and Olivia (12). I divorced in 1996 and went to Bradley for my undergrad and then to St. Louis University in Social Work (what was I thinking???) and worked in child welfare. In 2000 I married my husband Mike, and we had our son Clayton. Mike and I (and the kids) live in Germantown. I finally got out of child welfare and into Real Estate. I am with Keller Williams and absolutely love it!!

Comments: I figured 20 years was long enough to wait to post this - cannot believe it has been that long! I, like many of you, still live in the area.  I have been married to Bill for 14 years and we have 4 great kids - Jessica, Brandon, Jennifer and Jillian.  Let's see, I graduated with my Bachelor's in Secondary Education and Spanish from Bradley University in 1995 and acquired my Master's in Spanish in 2007 from ISU.  If you can believe it, I replaced Sra. Hartley at MTHS about 12 years ago.  I am Senora Saatoff and I absolutely love it!  I get to take students to  Mexico every other summer and we have so much fun - we climb the pyrmids in Mexico City (Teotihuacan) and parasail in Puerto Vallarta.  I still keep in touch with mamy alumni and I still watch the "Breakfast Club" every time it comes on.   I guess, once an 80's girl, always an 80's girl.  I really look forward to seeing you all again at the 20 year reunion (and having your kids in my classroom)!

Comments: I am married to David Patek and live in Palatine, IL (northwest suburb of Chicago) and do not have any children unless you count my 2 cats. I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelors of Music and with certification to teach K-12. I taught for 13 years but have decided to switch careers. I have been attending Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, IL (campus of Northwestern) part time since 2004. I am pursuing ordination with the end goal of either a pastor or a Christian Educator. It is a long process (I am finally at a midpoint of a 3 year masters program) and I am working on my patience. I still love to play my flute and perform occassionally and teach private lessons. (Updated: 09/2009)
