        (updated March '09) Married to a beautiful lady who was a Doctor for 11 years. I was transfered from Texas to North Carolina 2 years ago. it would be great to have a reunion consisting of 4 year span. We travel in the states and over seas.
        There is only one thing to say.......those were the days. school today is nothing like what we had. I could talk about all the parties and fun we had at the river and beach, but I'm not sure there is enough room I wish all my friends good luck and good cheer. Eddie. p.s. thanks for starting this page!

        Comments: What a long, strange trip it's been. Became a teacher, married Claire Hooper (Class of '83), wandered like a gypsy, lived in Ireland, and currently own Sunrise Records on South 11th Street (Yep, that place). Now I'd probably win the award for "classmate who now lives the least distance from the school". Ride my bicycle through the campus regularly. Sometimes I park at the front door, sit on the bricks and remember. Was a precinct chairman for Barack Obama in 2008. Never thought I'd live to see this country elect a black man president, much less twice. Remember what it was like at French in '75 and '76? The mind boggles. I'm somewhat less crazy than I was in those days. Older, wiser, but still cannot figure out how this wound up being the future. I hope those who were my friends then are happy and fit today. And those who weren't my friends, too.

        Comments: I am fortunate to have kept up many close friendships with French alums over the years. I also now realize that I was lucky to have had many teachers at French that really cared about my education and helping me prepare for college (Mrs. Yates and Mrs. Smallwood immediately come to mind). And I have always appreciated that Mrs. Crittenden truly provided me guidance at times--like my senior year when Mrs. Wagstaff decided I needed to NOT be in her experimental English class; the feeling was mutual as Mrs. Crittenden noted and got me out of there. I am also lucky to have fulfilled my career goal of being an attorney.

Anything that had to do with getting together with fellow band members was fun! I have had the wonderful blessing to share those memories with my daughter as she made her own high school band memories. I was honored with a special "band mom" charm from all my "kids" in her high school band.

We are grandparents of 8 so far: ages 4,4,3,3,2,2,1,1 only 2 girls in the mix. Charlie and I have found a few of our old classmates and started talking through messangers and emails, we call Charles Edwards and talk to him quite a bit lately. Charlie is 50 now, I am 44; hea was a few years older than most of his class but because of his eyes, he started school late. I remember, alot of strange things our classes did, motorcycle rides down the halls, boy was Rector made over that one. The trips to the AG Farm, I remember the day it rained so much the parking lot across the street was totally under water. I remember teachers helping me when I had problems at home, they were so caring then. I read all t he messages and I am sorry we havent known about any of the reunions, bonfires or whatever, we have kept our phone number unlisted, our mistake. I did right down a list of email addresses and will email those I and Charlie found, hopefully some are good email addresses.

I have never forgotten that 1st Fri. in town, deturmined to be miserable. My parents said, "Go to the youth function! You might have fun!" Looking for the only person I knew in town, I went. As I walked in, the Youth Dir. Steve said,"Richard, you're just in time! Will you be Penny's partner?" I had a moment of clarity. I remember taking in every second, every movement in the room. All the world came to a halt as I met her smile. Never have forgotten that the whole scene. everything about it. 25 years later, I can still experience that moment when I look into her eyes of fall helplessly into her arms. I've had good andI've had bad. But I still have the best thing that ever came into my life. I LOVE YOU, Penny Cash .. Forever Richard Hudgens

        Comments: Graduated LU in 82. Met my wife Sue at lamar and we have three children age 14-9 1 boy and 2 girls. I want to apologize to Ms Swartze (sophomore english teacher) for threating to run her down in the FHS parking lot. I thought it was a good idea at the time since she failed me with a 69 making me take summer school and ruining my summer. I have matured slightly since then and realize that i needed to take sophomore english again along with junior english and college freshman english. It finally took the third time in college and I graduated lamar with a 3.7 gpa. To Ms Crittinton our senior consler, see i told that a high school gpa of 1.2 did not mean i was not college material. I am self employed and still depend heavily on spell and grammer check. by the way were is the spell check icon. I look forward to seeing everyone at the next get together.

        Comments: I currently teach History in a middle school outside Ft. Worth. School today is very different from what we experienced. My favorite memories of FHS are the drama trips with Bill and Jackie Morton, French class with Zulma Smith (she is the reason I majored in French) and those electrifying pep rallies. We had such fanatastic school spirit. We could use some cool green pines up here!

The neat thing about that is running into the children of former French High classmates of Dave and mine that now go to West Brook or run around with our children. Life has a way of coming full circle doesn't it:) This web page is a great idea and a good way to get in touch with other alumni.

My favorite teacher was Ms. Annie Lee Knox whom I saw at a Delta Kappa Gamma Christmas Sorority Party. She is still a special lady to be around. I really enjoy it whenever I find out that I am teaching a fellow FHS student's child. Open House becomes a lot more fun!

I remember the pep rallies, decorating the halls for homecoming, the bonfires and all the special people that I met there. Really looking forward to our 25th reunion and getting to see everyone again.

        Comments: What a great site! Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this so we all can enjoy. I married a Buddy (from Houston) and Aug is 21 years. We have a son Trey, 18yrs who will enter Texas Tech this fall and a daughter Becky 15yrs who is a junior this year. Griping cause she's a junior w/o a driver's license. Favorite memories are Buffalo Belles, Winning State in Volleyball, decorating for Homecoming, football games, Pizza Inn, Crystal Beach in the summers. Those were the good ole days. Lots of great friends. Most of our time has been revolves around our kids. I still spend alot of time in the gym, only now I watch volleyball. Becky has developed a passion for the game and is quite good. She has had a following of college coaches since her freshman year.(UCLA, Stanford, UT, Florida, are a few.) Makes her Momma proud. She has played in the National Jr Olympics summer 98 & 99. Needless to say we do stay busy and I manage to run my own jewelry business in there ! too. You guys that need anniversary & birthday gifts call me. Can't wait for the next reunion. The last one was a blast. I would love to have a reunion of several classes to see friends from other years. (ex: 74 75 76 77 78) That would be fun. Thanks agsin for the site.

Amazing how the years change us, isn't it?...
        (1998)Wow! What a find! Just yesterday I was looking through my French 76 yearbook and walking down memory lane - go figure... Well, 20 + years have taken me from Beaumont to A&M (Gig 'Em!) to Houston to St. Louis and back here to the Houston area - Spring, to be exact. Along the way, I got married to my best friend of 13 years (the former Tammy Byers, also French class of 76 - although she didn't catch me till I was 30!), had 2 beautiful children (Mandy, 8, and Nick, 7), and have been blessed by many, many friends, both new and old, along the way. The 20th Reunion was great - can't wait until 25!!
