Oh my, how do you fit your life in this space? Life has been filled with so many blessings, with its challenges along the way, needless to say. With the loss of 2 husbands, I've learned to rely on myself and great children. My folks and siblings, of course, were always there as well. My children have kept me well grounded and encouraged me to accomplish things throughout my life. It was necessary to work, but found it rewarding and fulfilling.

I graduated from Westminster College, and worked for the U.S. Gov., U.S. Forest Service, as a Paralegal, for Office of General Counsel and Dept. of Justice, retiring in 2008. My activity in the LDS Church has kept my faith strong and has helped me find purpose in much of life. My children are married now, and I have 15 amazing Grandchildren, and 1 Great-Grandson. They bring much joy to my life, as I'm sure so many of my classmates find.

As a Master Gardner, I've been serving as a Garden Guide Missionary at the Salt Lake Temple grounds going on 7 years, and what better mission could there be? I love to garden! I am now the Director of that mission. I enjoy traveling and do so as much as time allows, with family or close friends. I have visited many amazing countries all over the world, and look forward to seeing more!

I'm blessed to have stayed close to many Highland High friends and hold those friendships very close. I've loved helping with the reunions, and this 50th one as well!!

School Story

I was one of the lucky ones....9th grade at Highland High School!! Woot Woot! I did not enjoy Jr. High quite so much, but when I hit Highland, things seemed to really turn around. Both curriculum, teachers, and especially friends, Highland was the PLACE!! Enjoyed Forensics, attending all of the games, and my heart was really into Seminary.

I was a seminary officer my senior year, and we had so much fun planning and implementing activities with the "Brothers" across the street. Another favorite all my years at Highland was the choral groups I participated in, Girls' Choir, Jr. Choir, Madrigals, and A'Cappella. Mr. C was the bomb!

Of course the dances at Highland were the best ever... the decorations and atmosphere was always the best. Always had so much fun at them. And who could forget the Pep Assemblies?? What a riot, we used to laugh so hard at classmates making fools of themselves, me among them!! Anyhow...Great memories Rams... I've been very sad seeing who has past on already, and remember what each of those individuals meant to me. But it's been great remembering all the GOOD! Love to all of you out there!! Hail Highland!!

Cordell, I just learned of Julie’s passing. Please know my heartfelt sympathy is coming your way for you & your family. Losing a spouse truly leaves a void in your life, and I pray your memories and faith will carry you through. Sometimes we don’t have a choice but to just go a day at a time, but I pray you may find comfort in those days. Take care, my friend.

Happy Birthday, Scott! They say it’s your birthday, makes sense you & Kent are merely 2 days apart... double the trouble or something, right? I’ve enjoyed your artwork you’ve been sharing on Facebook, you’ve always been one giving of your time & talents to others! Thanks so much, Scott! Take today to celebrate you! Enjoy yourselves!

You’re here and deserve a huge Happy Birthday! Hip Hooray!! You’ll show all those doctors what you’re made of, right?? THE RIGHT STUFF! I do hope this birthday greeting finds you feeling great and of good cheer, and LaRae doing supreme, as well! Perhaps you can slow it down a notch, take in these summer flowers & fresh air! I pray you & your fam have been ok through these crazy recent problematic times, and you are able to take on your new year!! To the best!! Xo

Hi classmates! I know I don’t catch all of these events, but I was very sorry to read that Rhoana (Atkinson) & Harold Shaw’s only son, David, 48, passed away due to complications of diabetes, on Monday. He was a very successful attorney, husband, & father of five children. Boy, no one promised us this life would be easy, and moments like this truly prove it! I’m sure you’ll all join me with our heartfelt sympathy and love to Rhoana, Harold, and their family at this difficult time. Love you, Rhoana!

Hi gang. Class Creators sent me a message that they’ve been working on some internal system improvements, & the system has been down for a few days! Sorry about that, but hopefully things will be faster & not as sensitive in the future!! Hoo Haw!!
