What have you and your family been doing since graduation:

After working 10 years at the Gov't Printing Office, we moved to Roanoke Va. in 1980, sent our 2 boys to college and now have 6 grand kids. I worked at Piedmont/USAir until 1998 when they closed the hangar then went to work for the County of Roanoke as a Building Technican and have been here since. I Dee Jay on Wednesday night's for Carolina Shag Dancers and Line Dancers. I have been a member of The Association of Rhythm & Blues Dee Jays since 2005 and I have now been accepted to the Association of Beach & Shag Club Dee Jays. That is a real honor to me. I have also been a Professional Bowler since 1996 on the Regional tour. I don't get to the tournaments as often as I would like, but do a few here & there. I also have a 1936 Chevrolet street rod that we enjoy riding around town. My mom went to be with God in Heaven on April 23 2011 and Cheryl's mom on June 22, 2011 just 60 days to the day. We miss them dearly and we were so honored to have been able to take care of them while they were here. Oldest Grand daughter Accepted at Virginia Tech and George Mason. You Go Girl !!!

School Story:
(If you are a Guest Member please describe your relationship to the Class of 1969)

I really enjoyed the vocational printing class with Mr. Powell along with having my picture taken beside President Johnson when he came to dedicate the school. I would have given anything to have been able to be at some of the past reunions. Time really goes faster as we grow older.

Here is a picture of a party that I Dee Jayed back in 2008. Most of us that Dee Jay have catchy names, so the only thing I could think of was "DIAMOND JIM".

This picture was taken when LBJ came to our dedication, April,1967. I was fortunate enough to have my picture taken with him.

We just got "Myrtle" back from the paint shop last week. We are hoping to get in a lot of riding time this year.
