March 13, 1959 Department of the Navy SingleHello to everyone!
After graduation from Lee, I joined the US Navy where I dedicated 20 plus years and retired in Jan 2003. I currently reside in Callaway, MD where I work for the Department of the Navy in the acquisition contracting field.
I am single, never married and have no kids. During the holidays, I make visits to Montgomery to see family and friends. The next time I am in town I would like to meet my classmates of 1977.
Have a great day and God Bless all!!

April 18, 1959 Nurse Separated 3Hello, I sort of happened up on this site, and I am glad that I did. I spent an hour just reading up on everyone. Did not know a lot of people, but the class of 1977 was a large class. I am currently working as a prison nurse, to say it is interesting is an understatement. I have two grown sons, and my youngest son is soon to be a Jr. in high school. We all have Lee in our blood, because they are all Lee alumni. I missed the reunion, but Lydia Clifton had some pictures that she posted, I enjoyed looking at them and hated that I missed it.

April 04, 1959 Pre School Teacher Married 2Hi ya'll! It was great finding this site. Since leaving Montgomery to go to Troy, I have often wondered what happened to everyone. I didn't stay at Troy long; in 1978 I married Jon Yow from that other school -JD. He was an Airman stationed in Panama City, Fl. Since then our life has been one adventure after anohter. When he retired in 2003 I thought the relocating was over, we settled near Destin, in Niceville, Fl. But no, in 2008 we moved yet again to Fleming Island, Fl.
We have two fantastic daughters 21 and 11.
I teach at a private school in Fleming Island, and if I say so myself I have the greatest job in the world. A three mile round trip commute and I am helping little ones get ready to begin their school careers.
Don't get to Montgomery very often, although my parents still live in Hiighland Park. When we are home I can't resist driving by Lee just to recall "back in the day".

October 11, 1959 Homemaker/CASA Volunteer Married 2I found out about this website from Gary Ledbetter, someone with whom I have very fond and funny memories of. I was a teachers helper for Mrs Wattersons english class and he and I sat by one another. I enjoyed my senior year at Lee, but much of my attention was not about school but about my boyfriend, Ken who was stationed at Gunter during that time. I realize now that I missed alot of opportunities to enjoy much of the high school activities, but I am happy to say that Ken and I married 5 days after graduation and will be celebrating 35 years of marriage in June!!!
We have 2 sons (Jack, 31 and Marc, 27) both boys are married and Jack has a son, Xander who turned 3 in January.
Our son, Marc joined the Air Force just as his dad and grandfather before him did and he loves it. He has been to Iraq, Romainia, Poland, stationed in England, Texas and is currently packing for his new assignment in Georgia, making him only 7 hrs drive from us (Tennessee)
Just 2 weeks after marrying, we moved to Anchorage, AK (loved it!) and follow on bases were Colorado and then Michigan for 14 yrs, until Ken retired. We moved to Tennessee and he works as an instrument technician out at Arnold AFB in Tullahoma. We have now lived here for almost 18 yrs and love living close to our family. My brother Mark and his family moved here 16 yrs ago. Having been an air force brat, I never expected to have my family close, so this is a true gift.
I was a tax preparer for 8 years before deciding I wanted to do volunteer work again..I have been working for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for neglected and abused children. My speciality is with sexual abused children and while the job can be sad, it has great rewards when you speak for and help a child find a loving and safe home. Ken and just got a new 28' camper and started white water rafting last year and love it so much!!! Life has been very very good to us and we feel truely blessed to have our family and tremendous friends to share our lives with. Thank you, Judi for having such an exceptional website for us all to catch up on and share our memories and stories with!

October 26, 1959 Office Mgr./Accountant Single Again 5
February 07, 1959 Construction Management Married 2I have been married now for 30 years and live in Pike Road, AL. I work for Sherlock, Smith & Adams, Architects/Engineers, where I have been for 13 years. I worked at Blount 10 years prior to this. My Dad always told me if I did not go to college I would have to work construction the rest of my life. I went to college and I am still in construction. Explain that one. My wife, Denise, is a Teacher and Upper School Director at Eastwood Christian School in Montgomery. We have two children, Jamie (25) is a Paramedic with the Montgomery Fire Department and Patrick (22) is at Auburn majoring in Landscape Horticulture. My Dad turned 87 in June and is still active and my Mother, not far behind, has been hospitalized lately with Heart problems. They have lived in the same house since 1964. We are active members at Frazer Church. I was elected to the Town Council in Pike Road, AL in October of 2008.
After graduation, I moved on with my life and put the high school days behind. I avoided all reunions for 31 years until June 4, 2008, I ran into Judi at Hamburger King downtown after having not seen her for 30 years. This is a place I have never been to at lunch and have not been back since. Nonetheless, Judi scolded me that day demanded my email and I have not been the same since. I have enjoyed the email updates and learning where everyone is now in life.
