Yes! Attending Reunion

I left KHS to work in marketing at Georgia Power Company. Little did I know that I'd have five different jobs with GPC over a 30 year span and get to stay right here in the Columbus area! The River Center, a TOTAL ELECTRIC facility, was my swan song in 2000 when I retired as a senior commercial marketing rep.
I'm now active as a museum docent (along with J. Gosha who taught German back when...), and I have chaired the boards of Girls Inc., St. Luke ELC, and HEIB. I'm also involved with DAR, the Ambassadors (our GPC retiree organization), and St. Luke School Board---not to mention keeping up with a wonderful football-crazed husband (War Eagle) and seven equally marvelous grandchildren!
...and I garden!

School Story:

Loved every day at KHS!
Moved up with our students from Eastway (now Rothschild Jr. High) with Ralph Toole, principal. Taught home economics and 9th grade science (next door to Coach Gilstrap!) until May, 1970.
I remember Art Williams asking me to sponsor a Biscuit Club to keep the football boys "out of trouble"---his words. I can't remember how successful we were, but I do remember the fantastic football seasons. What a marvelous, fun faculty we had! I still get to see many of those talented folks---love meeting former students too, but I can't believe they are OLD now!
