After my husband retired from ExxonMobil in 2008, we packed up & moved out west to the Hill Country. We live on a hilltop far, far away, where the deer, axis and rabbits play! City comes to country! What a life......wouldn't trade it for the world! I have thoroughly enjoyed this website.......some things make me sad, but most of it makes me smile. It sure brings back a lot of memories.

We are getting ready to go back again. We're beach bums at heart, we love to ride on the beach, walk on the beach, just be around the salt water and salt air! I am a double cancer survivor of 7 years, my husb John had a massive heart attack this past August. so...we are dealing with lots of different things. We babysit the grandbaby every day and she is what keeps us up and going! Suddenly we have become our parents - we are feeling old ! There are some friends I truly miss and wonder how they are.

I started a nonprofit Empowering Women as Leaders in 2004. The nonprofit provides scholarship for women ages 23 and above and provides mentoring from a professional woman through college and two years afterwards. Women join as members and get the opportunity to network with other women. The chapter in Dallas has sponsored 10 women in the first 4 years. The Beaumont chapter was established last year and we are currently working with Lamar to establish the scholarship program for Beaumont. Please send me an email if you are interested in joining!

      Comments:It has been a very long time since I left the area and moved up to the Fort Worth area. For over 20 years I had my own company with the main office in Arlington. Made the mistake in 98 to sell it to a yankee. Oh well water under the bridge. I now write technical papers for various organizations as well as under contract the US Environmental Protection Agency to write Standard Operating Procedures. Boy working for the government is easy work but they sure waste alot of our money. What have I done: I have been in all 50 states, 7 US providences, and 23 foreign countries. Flew around the world twice. I have been in over 10 country music videos, extra in 8 films, three shot in TX tv serials. Belong to a group of actors that put on plays and skits in the Stockyards in Ft. Worth, TX. I have performed at Billy Bobs in the Stockyards, and I still write songs with a friend that lives in Denton. I contribute time to several charities as a "celeb" (what the heck is that) for golf tournaments and autograph signings. No it is not what I have done in the movies because I was a face in a crowd. If you ever watch a Texas Rangers Baseball game you notice a silver hair gentleman sitting down third base netting baseballs. Yes netting the baseball. Well that is me. Whenever I get my site finished, thenetman.net, it will have more info. It was good to read through so many and enjoy what so many have accomplished. I am sorry I have never made it back to any the reunions, but I hope that will change. Take care each and everyone and I hope to see you all soon.

      Comments: Well, I have been married to for 27 years, in May it will be 28, to Scott Thomas a Forest Park alumni '69. We have two children, Joshua 23yrs. and Shasta 18yrs. and they both attend SFA University. We have been here for 19 years. We started with a polutry farm for a few years and then sold them.. I have worked at the Douglass School(K-12th) for 11 years and my husband is a new car manager at Tipton Ford. We live in a rual area and love it.(the cities aren't to far to shop) My memories of school are really fun, but also sad ones. Alot of things happened and I can only say that God was with me and my family. I think this is a wonderful web idea and you have done an exellent job! My sister Rhonda and brother Jackie still live in Bmt. My brother Eddie (Binky) and my parents live here. I don't see or hear from anyone, but once in awhile I run into someone. I talked to Susan Turner about a couple of years ago and that's about it. I haven't been to any of the r! eunions yet. My faviorite teacher was Mrs. Smith in homemaking class. She really was a very sweet lady.

I HAVE VISITED SOME OF THE OTHER SITES SOME OF THE OTHER ALUMNI HAVE SET UP AND THERE IS NO WAY TO EXPRESS THE JOY THAT RELIVING THOSE DAYS HAVE MEANT TO ME. I KNOW OTHERS WILL ENJOY THEM AS MUCH. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME ON DOING THIS. THE SCHOOLS ARE SO DIFFERENT NOW I WISH THE KIDS TODAY COULD UNDERSTAND WHAT SCHOOL PRIDE IS AND MAKE SCHOOL ENJOYABLE LIKE IT USE TO BE.

Somehow ended up at Texas A&M (gig 'em) and graduated from Vet School in '83. I met the most wonderful girl in the world while at TAMU (it was love at first site) and got married in 1981. Susan and I have 4 beautiful daughters (poetic justice some say): Ashleigh 11, Heather & Jennifer both 7 (surviving triplets), and Kendall 5. I still play trumpet and guitar and play lead trumpet in the Praise Band at Champion Forest Baptist Church. My family, church, music, home theater & computers are my passions(thank goodness for cable modems). Drop me a line sometime

      Comments: ( update: march -04) Working at ExxonMobil Chemical since 1981. Married, 3 kids 16,17 and 19. My hobby has gone out of control so I started my on photography/graphics business. I enjoy driving and shooting the sights around East Texas and north of Austin and creating something I call "PhotoGraphics". I've been lucky enough to have my work used in many company and private publications and a cover shot on the "Oil and Gas Journal". Most of my friends don't recognize me without my camera. I'm even trying to learn how to build a web site but it's a little more time consuming than I'd like, you know.... 3 kids and all.
      Great site! Hey everyone, how are ya'll doing? This site answers one of my most often asked questions, "Where'd everyone go?" After HS, I served as a "Scope Dope" in the Air Force for 4 years, went to Lamar and actually graduated. Now I work for Mobil in Beaumont(soon to be Exxon), with Scott Arnold, Jon Tom Day, Kevin Lindstrom and several other old Buffalo heads. Married and have 2 boys, 14, 13 and a daddy's girl 12. Photography is still my main hobby.

In the past year I have had 3 major surgeries - one to have a mass removed from my lung - benign thank God. This has been a very hard year for me and my family but we'll make it. I am facing another surgery in a few weeks. This year has to be better! Thanks for this wonderful site - i love it.

      Comments: ( updated August 2002 )What a blur! High school, work, marriage, children, grandchildren and soon retirement. Time has turned me into a middle age grandfather. However I still feel like a kid. I married Sheila Havens (class of 1974) in 1974. We have been married 28 years. We have two daughters (Jennifer and Joni), a grandson (Kyle), a granddaughter (Kayla) and a son in law (Chris Nichols). We spent several years in Bowie, TX where we attended Bible college. We then moved to Duncan OK where we worked with Baptist Bible Church. In 1984 we returned to Beaumont and today I work for the Postal Service, and serve as pastor to Grace Bible Fellowship in Mauriceville TX. The memories of friends and school have endured time's passing and they are sweet reminders of our youth. I'd love to hear from any that care to write. My favorite teachers, Miss Klein Geometry) Mrs. Zulma Smith, French-she was more than a teacher she believed in me and provoked me to some discipline.) Mr. Bill Morton, Drama) Mrs. Rodriguez (Physical Science).

      Comments: I married a French High graduate of 1971, Phillip Darcy. He is still involved with motorcyles too. He has a performance shop and does work for all the national competators in dirt track and road race. He races for 18 years after he graduated and finally we had to give it up and move back to Texas. We had moved to Illinois to be closer to all the races. Old age set in and a baby came with it and we settled down in the Ft. Worth area. We just couldn't make ourselves move back to that humid climate! I am still friends with Sherry Walker and Colleen Ford and we visit and talk alot. They are both still in the Beaumont area. I am a travel agent and love my work. It has given us the opportunity to travel alot. We are now into scuba diving so we tend to hit the clear carribean water as much as possible. Our favorite dive destination to date is the island of Curacao. Colleen, Sherry, and a few more old time FHS graduates have gone on several girl trips to Cozumel. Phil and I have one son, now age 16. We had just commented on how they don't have an 11th street here to hang out at like we did. It was great and times were better than they are now for our kids. It would be great to hear from the class of 1973 since we were to lazy to have a 25th reunion!!!!
