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!

About Me

After attending UTA on a basketball scholarship for one year, I chose to begin a career as a homebuilder. I also married Karen Thomas in 1974 and our daughter Kellie was born in 1976. In 1989, I decided to go into the mortgage industry as a loan officer, a vocation that I still pursue today. In 1998, Karen and I moved to a rural area of Argyle, where we still live with our horses and the abundant wildiife that habitate the property. My interests include enjoying the outdoors, tinkering with classic cars, and maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle.

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.
