Seems like at that time in my life it was all about me and what I was doing. How I wish I would have been a better communicator at that time. To open my heart to all. I would like to ask forgiveness. If in any way I offended any of you. My sister Christine class of 70 passed away from heart failure 2006. I miss her dearly. My life has had it's ups and downs but I feel blessed for all the experiences. May God bless you all.

I married Lee Corley (FHS '74) in 1980 after renewing our relationship as students at Lamar where we both earned two degrees each. We have two good kids and we've always been in Beaumont until our planned move to Friendswood in June '02. Mike Slay was and remains my best friend. Zulma Smith was my favorite teacher (though technically Mildred Yates, my 5th grade English teacher at Eugene Field Elem. would have edged her out if I had had her for any classes at FHS)...James Ruby, Travis Beard, and Guy Broussard were fine teachers worth noting; Jim Boone was a huge influence on me. I was proud to be "neath the pines so green..."

        Comments: (updated June '07) I retired from ExxonMobil 7 days before my 50th birthday, left Beaumont for Lumberton and a much larger yard to mow! If I had only known retirement was so good I would have never worked in the first place! Two of my kids are grown and moved away with only one left at home. My son is flying all over the east coast with US Airways and is always wanting to know where I want to go (free airfare) ... I say "Lumberton". To which his reply is "the runway's way too short!" After being retired for 3 years and living in Southeast Texas for 53 years I am yearning to leave flatland and live on top of a mountain in the Smokey Mountains somewhere and become a hillbilly. Well, I have to cut this short, it's time for my 'power-nap' or time to check the water in the pool or something .... life's hectic these days! hahaha
        Married, 3 ‘kids’ they are moving out slowly. John the oldest is in University of North Texas, I’m especially proud of him. I’ve invested a lot too.. $$$ Time Groceries, & Worry! I am still working as a supervisor in the production department of ExxonMobil after 25 years. Following in the path of those who travel before me, I have put on weight, had back surgery, did a triple by-pass, and enjoy arthritis on occasion Yep, falling apart and –out of warranty- Mike "Dr. Oz" Oszczakiewicz (Julie's little brother) did my surgery and STILL remembered the GREEN Chevy! Boy did that change the Dr/Patient climate. This site has been great, as I have heard from a lot of people who were on my ‘missing in action’ list. Would love to see many of you again, and one of you in particular (& no you don’t owe me money). Life has been very good to me! I wish you all well. Note: Those of you who knew my older brother Ronnie (changed to ‘Ron’ after gross income exceeded 1m *Grin*) passed away in India while visiting a friend just a few years ago at the age of 48. He went to French but graduated from Beaumont High.

We are still in touch with several people that I graduated with. I enjoyed orchestra class the most with Mrs. Messer. I have really enjoyed my classmates. Playing the music for their weddings was a blast. I'm really looking forward to our 30 year reunion.

        The last time I signed in was 2001. It looks like there aren't many recent updates. Joey Watson and I married in 1975 and divorced in 2005, for the last time. I moved to Lewisville, Texas, near our son and daughter-in-law, who are expecting their first baby (a girl) in early March '06. I can't wait. I love it up here. I am a paralegal for a law firm in Denton, Texas and work for two of the nicest guys on the face of the earth. I would love to hear from you guys. Entry date: November 22, 2006 Nov.'06 Last sign in for me was 2001; a lot of time has passed since then. I am about to be a "NaNa" for the first time. IT'S A GIRL!! She should arrive in early March, but if she's anything like her daddy, she'll be her early. I moved to the North Dallas area a year ago and wish I had done it a lifetime ago. Change can be good, I have found. Would love to hear from someone. . . anyone!!!
        I married Joey Watson in 1975. We have one son, Joel Forrest who will be 20 in June. We have been blessed with a bright and talented child that is wise beyond his years.(He gets that from me of course) Joey attended Lamar University on a baseball scholarship, graduated and is self employed. I have been working for an attorney here in Beaumont for the past six months. Prior to my curent job I was Director of Children's Ministry at a local Baptist church for sixteen year. What can I say, I know when it's time to move on. I still have my Belle boots and the nickels are still taped in them. By the way, they are the only part of that uniform that still fit, except for maybe the pompoms. What I remember most is the laughter of my friends. We don't see each other much these days, but on those rear occasions, the laughter is still there.

What wonderful memories have been shared at the 1st. bonfire and the 11th.St. Cruises, unbelieveable at the turnouts and what dedicated high school spirit ones have.I have rejoined former classmates and made new friends with other alumni. Big Bill still reigns in the hearts and memories of FHS ALUMNI. Surprised that so many alumni still live in S.E.TEXAS and amazed that this webpage has traveled around the world, Thanks Buffs and to the Loyal Order of the Buffalo you did teach us well!

I just got back from a very sad (funeral) trip to Beaumont and I should've known better than to act on the nostalgic feeling that came over me while I was visiting with my relatives. I drove around our old haunts one afternoon ... cried lke a baby. Beaumont's North End has definitely seen it's better days. But, as I drove past the old school, I had to pull over and, as I did, I was overwhelmed with some wonderful memories. Thank God no one can change what's in our hearts and minds. I am anxious to hear from all .. please keep me posted on our 30th.

Nancy works at Hardin-Jefferson High School as the registrar. We have two wonderful kids, Steven is 21 and Kim is 18. We were very lucky...never a minutes worth of trouble from either one.

Have you thought about setting up a memorial page for classmates who have passed away? I know it could be a hard thing to do, but it could also be really helpful for those of us who might be looking for class mates. And if you could add us to your prayer list,that would be great. We are trying to adopt 3 of our foster children, and we are praying that things will go right for the adoption. If you think this would be a good thing to list, great.

This was the class caught up in the 9th grade discontinuation at Austin Jr High and were split between Bowie and Beaumont High. I think a lot of classmates who had gone through all the years were lost. I have missed all the reunions but would love to know what some are doing.
