After graduation I preformed in several productions at community theaters around town while supporting myself as a hotel night auditor. Then I moved to Orlando to try out for Disney World, where the casting director told me that "You are not the All-American type that Disney was looking for." That's why I went into Retail Management. I was transferred to Dallas, Texas & at the time of our 20th Reunion, I was working on the supply side in sales. Two years after that, I married Janice, who was raising two kids alone while working as a professional keyboardist/pianist/singer. On Sundays we led worship at several churches around the DFW Metro area. We are both retired now.

School Story

I was - by any standard - only an average student. In our Senior Year I needed to take (and PASS) Chemistry in order to graduate. At that time there were 2 semesters divided into 6 grading periods with an exam after each semester.

Mr. Ritchie approached me after the 5th grading period. As I had enough credits to pass already, (and was not contributing anything to further the advancement of the class) he offered me that if I were to remove myself from his classroom for the 6th grading period that he would mark me as "Present" for the remainder of the school year. Happily, I complied with his wishes.

Subsequently, I have just retired after 22+ years working for a chemical company.

I'm sorry. Bengals lost the Super Bowl and I probably jinxed it -- Mathew Stafford is from Metro Dallas...where I now live. We will always have Aiken Alum Jim O'Brien, the hero of Super Bowl V...who now resides in Thousand Oaks, CA...near Los Angeles...
