About Me

I graduated from UT School of Nursing Ft. Worth (now  UTA  College of Nursing) in 1975.  Spend ~ 20 years at St. Paul Medical Center in Dallas.   Received my Masters in Nursing at UTA .  I am a nurse practitioner working at Endocrine Associates of Dallas.  I am also a certified diabetic educator and adjunct professor with TWU -Dallas  nurse practitioner program.

 

I married Harvey in 1979.  We have 2 sons.  Matt is 26 y/o,  - Texas Tech  2007 .  He is an engineer at Cummins.  Nick is 21 y/o and a senior at Oklahoma State, majoring in engineering.   

 

Both boys played baseball in high school and we continue to be die hard Ranger fans, through thick and thin. Many of our vacations had been skiing in Colorado.   Over the past few years, we decided to head for the beach.  Cabo has been a great find. 

 

Hard to believe it has been nearly 40 years, time flies.

About Me

I started at UTA the summer of 71, then moved on to UT School of Nursing at Fort Worth, graduated from there in 75.  Worked in Arlington for a year, then married (way too young!) and moved to Lawton Oklahoma.  Lived there for 7 years, getting a Masters in Nursing at OU.  Accepted a position at Frankfurt Army Medical Center in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, and stayed in Germany for 7 years, having 2 kids in the process.  Divorced and moved to Washington State to continue to work for the Army, where I still live. 

Currently working as a Community and Population Health Nurse for the McChord Medical Clinic at McChord Field/Joint Base Lewis McChord (all new military type organization).  I can retire in 15 months and 3 days (but who's counting!)  Love what I do, but want to do less of it. 

Raised 2 kids as a single parent for 20 years (my ex died in 95), then married 2 years ago to the best thing that ever happened to me.... 

Have sung for 2 years with a Christian Choral group called Breath of Aire, (www.breathofaire.org).  I still say "Singing is Believing" 

My daughter Kate will 28 soon, is very beautiful, very smart, and very available (if anyone has a gorgeous loving son around),  My son John, 25, is currently in Tech School at Shepard AFB in Wichita Falls, training for maintenance on the B2. 

I travel back and forth to Texas frequently, to see my dad, other family and friends. 

I'm planning to attend the 40th reunion, as I've not been around or even know about the previous ones.  Sounds like the party recently was really fun.  I like fun!

Hi! I live in Frisco with my husband of ten years, Paul Vinyard, who is a busy owner of restaurants. We have a dozen grandchildren and I manage our real estate investments. We travel some for fun. He owns several antique cars that I love so we are learning when and where to go to local car shows. I still sing but only for fun and church. I hope everyone is good and look forward to visiting with yall at the reunion. Charla

About Me

Went to AHS my junior year only after moving from my hometown of Corpus Christi.  Dad built one house by Lake Arlington (after being told Arlington was going to boom).  After a year of no luck selling the house, Hurricane Celia hit Corpus and Dad decided to move back to remodel homes destroyed by the storm (big mistake!).  Mom called me at work (Six Flags, food & beverage manager of the puppet theater - $1.55 pr hr LOL) and told me to quit, "we're moving back to CC".


Today, I am an equal partner in a structural engineering firm doing building inspections on new and existing structures certifying for windstorm insurance here on the coast.  I'm also doing music production in a small home studio and in the process of forming a dance band ("The Rebuilt Carburetors") for weddings, corporate parties and maybe some happy hour gigs.  In fact, our first gig is upcoming on March 19th & 20th at Paradise Key here at the Key Allegro marina (get that plug in) in Rockport.  We've lived in Rockport, TX (near Corpus Christi) for eleven years now.  Yvonne and I are celebrating 20 years this June and have 2 kids and 4 grandkids.

About Me

Graduated from UT Austin in May 1974 and married my husband, Steve, in August of that year.  We moved to San Antonio two weeks later where he attended dental school.  (Great name for a dentist:  Dr. Payne!).  We loved San Antonio so much that we stayed.  It is close enough for weekend fishing trips to the coast, hunting trips to South Texas or relaxing stays in the Hill Country.

 

We have three daughters:  Kendall (29),  Aleigh (24) and Susannah (22).  And we have one grandson with another on the way.  Live has been so good.

 

I have been working as the Administrator for an large ophthalmology practice for 25 years.  Prior to that I worked for Datapoint, a computer company, as Manager of Customer Education. 

 

Our dream is to retire on some acreage in the Hill Country.

About Me

      After graduating from Arlington high I attended TCJC ( now TCC ) for one year then transferred to UTA .  After one semester and trying to be a grocery stocker at night I became frustrated and one day visted the recruiter and enlisted in the Navy where I was a medic for 4 1/2 years. During that time I worked on a ward, became an operating room tech, and combat field medic where I spent one year over seas with the 1ST Battallion 9TH marines. I was honorably discharged in Aug 1977.

 

      In Dec 1977 I hired on with the Arlington police department where I worked primarily on patrol but spent two years in crime scene and one and a half years in communications and eight years in the municipal courts as a bailiff. I retired from APD after thirty and a half years. I took some R & R for about seven months then hired on with the Tarrant County Sheriffs Dept. in the judicial division and have been there a little over a year.

 

        I have been married to a wonderful woman Tori for over twenty five years. We have a beautiful 21 year old daughter Katie. I still  live in Arlington after 42 years.

 

       I made the 20 yr reunion but missed the 30 yr reunion. After learning of this websight and reading about so many classmates I have not seen or heard from, I look forward to our 40 yr reunion in 2011. I still attend a lot of the football games when I can. Go Colts and go Texas Longhorns.

After High School, I attended UT-Arlington where I competed on the UTA Golf Team.  I graduated from UTA in 1976 with a BA Degree in Political Science/Public Administration.  I then moved to College Station, TX, my original home town, where I completed a Master's Degree at Texas A&M in Political Science/City Management.  After finishing school in 1977, I went to work in the Finance-Banking industry with Westinghouse Credit, where I continue to work today with Bank of America as a SVP-Commercial Leasing Officer. 

I have two great kids, Monica (32, living in Austin, TX) and Jeff (31, living in Atlanta, GA) from my first marriage.  I have been happily married to my current wife, Amanda, since 1996 and we presently reside in Bryan, TX.   We enjoy traveling, spending time with friends & family and many outdoor activities!!
