Born in Sacramento, California in 1946 I was a beautiful baby, they said. But by the age of two I was so hyper I got in trouble a lot! When my brother was born, we then moved Willow Springs Missouri where my father was born. Dad and mom bought a one room tarpaper shack on an eighty-acre farm....

Thank you to all who helped make the alumni gathering for 2021 such a great success. There was a lot of planning and preparation to accommodate the 250+ in attendance.
