Comments:

It started out kind of lousy, first of all I didn't really get to graduate with my class. My father remarried and she made him get rid of his girls so my little sis went to a foster home and I was left downtown Dayton. This was quite a cultural shock after being raised in Saville. But I finished high school and then an associates in data processing at Sinclair. Then went on to get a bachelors of science in management.
I've been married twice and blessed with two great kids and I have grandkids! Wow! They are lots more fun than kids!!! So, I'm ok - living in Springboro and working for PHP.

School Story:

Okay, I think it was in 8th or 9th grade when in Science class Mr Shea was teaching us about being careful with chemicals and kept saying he smelled something burning and finally realized the tip of his finger was burning.

Smoking pot in the baseball dugout.... (I guess I was a bit of a stinker back then!)... but you'd be amazed who would show up over there! LOL!

What cities have you lived?

Dayton, Orlando, West Carrollton, Springboro

Do you still speak to or hang out with friends from high school?

I have talked to Terri Witters some on facebook

How did you hear about this website?

Terri Witters contacted me on facebook

Did you get any tattoos or body piercings since high school?

No

If so, what is it and where is it?

Never that brave but my daughter still tries to talk me into it.... I've never liked needles & she's a phlebotomist and thinks they are cool! :(

Your career now. Is what you wanted to do and how did you get into it?

I work for Premier Health Partners in their Information Technology group. Been there almost 10 years now. I've actually worked in IT since 1981. Healthcare is definitely the most challenging IT field - aircraft was the most exciting - banking was the most boring and manufacturing got you the most whistles.

If you are attached, how did you and your spouse/partner meet?

Not right now.

What is your favorite memory of Stebbins High School?

I loved the football games! The cool air, screaming for the Indians, it was always so much fun!

If you could go back in time, what would you do differently in high school?

Try not to piss off my step mom! LOL

What famous or interesting people have you met?

I just met Patrick Ewing in Nassau on July 29th of this year! And his wife and son, they were great folks, we spent the evening drinking Dom Perignon and talking about raising kids while my daughter and their son swooshed ice cubes at people. I used to MC for KLOVE and met all the guys in Third Day, 12 Stones, Thousand Foot Krutch, MercyMe, Audio Adreniline, Chris Rice, DC Talk and many others. Michael Tait was an incredible young man! I also spent an evening with Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad) and his wife working a church project one time. That was totally exciting since I had one of their posters on my bedroom wall when I was like 14!

Did you ever skip school or class?

Continually.. I was a bit of a rebel.

What are you afraid of?

Not much, getting a speeding ticket?

What words of wisdom would you leave us, friends and/or family with?

Aim high, keep going no matter what happens always keep your thoughts positive and trust God.
