Yes! Attending Reunion

Enjoy tennis and walking.
Still love the beach and shopping of course!
Like to cook and eat (unfortunately).

What would we be surprised to know about you?

I keep my hair very short now! lol

Favorite memory of RHHS:

Loved everything about sophomore and junior year but was so ready to get out of there my senior year and get on with my life (dumb).

Football and basketball games.
Beach trips "first week"
Flirting with guys!
Working on Garnet & Black staff

Least favorite memory of RHHS:

French class where we had to recite several paragraphs for Mrs. Shealy in front of the whole class.

Gym class in those ugly uniforms and having to play softball when I could neither hit or throw.

Having Mrs. Jackson for homeroom and her making me stand in front of the class one morning when I wore the first "skort" she had ever seen and she sent me home to change - mortifying!

Who was your favorite teacher?

Mrs. Dubard (Geometry) and Sam Cook (Alg-trig)

Ever skip school?


What did you always want to do that you haven't done?

To be a carpenter and know how to build things. Go figure!

Retire early and travel (which did not happen)

Own a beach house for get-aways anytime.

Would you do anything different if you could roll the years back?

Stay in school longer and become a dentist instead of a dental hygienist. Got burned out. I read where so many of you wish you had studied harder. I wish I hadn't been so hard on myself about studying all the time and making good grades and wish I was more "carefree" then and now.

I would tell my Daddy that I loved him more before losing him and that he was the best father in the whole world! I would tell him how much I appreciate the most perfect childhood from being raised in a stable and Christian environment and how that has shaped me into a secure woman.

How old do you feel?

Some days 35, some days 75! Most days 40.

Favorite vacation spot:

Bahamas or Carribbean

Favorite TV show:

Biggest Loser, American Idol, and Damages

Any words of wisdom?

The older I get, the more I realize the only things that really matter in life are having wonderful family and friends. I could not do without my lifelong YaYa friends since first grade at Sylvia Circle - Vivian Moore Carroll, Sherry Franklin McElrath, Sandra Sturgis Cooke, and Rosemary Howell Brunson.


Age is only in our head. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion!

Janis, so glad you joined our website! You will enjoy catching up with old (I mean past) friends. Almost time to start working on our 50th reunion for next year so hope you can plan to come. They are really a lot of fun. I just retired too. Isn't it wonderful?

To my dear friend Rick - you will be so missed. Nobody on this earth had a smile like yours!  Your laugh which came often was contagious. You were always a caring and genuine person who looked you in the eye and made one feel like they were important enough for your undivided attention at the time. Rest in peace, Barbara

Great to have you online. Sure hope you can plan to come to our reunion in the fall. You have plenty of time to plan! I agree with you totally about Mrs. Jackson also! (Toughest lady I have met in my 62 years so far! haha) Love your words of wisdom - "Approach the journey as the dance and the rhythm will always keep you young." Thanks for joining!
