School Story:

I was in the SAP class throughout high school. This label had negative connotations with many of our peers. I used to laugh when I would hear that our peers thought that we always had cookies and milk at our parties. (we had alot of SAP parties!) I was proud of our SAP class. No one really buckled at this pressure. We didn't always have milk and cookies.... but we did have a bond that was invaluable. In an environment of over 700 students, we had a comfortable and supportive group that helped each of us grow.

I can't forget the laughs we had we when gave Mr. Miller (advance algebra teacher) a t-shirt that had his name on the front and ?????? on the back. He always finished his statements with a question. All I know is that anyone that took that class from him had an easy time with their first math class in college. He was a huge asset to Hamilton.

How have you changed (other than appearance) since graduation?

I am more tolerant.
I am more faith-filled.
I appreciate all the good things in my life.

What was one of your biggestmoments in life, somthing that you will never forget? (excluding having children, getting married)

I will never forget the great support I received when my husband was sick and the enormous help I received when he passed away.

What is on your list of things to do before you die?

Visit Greece.
Clean out my house.
Take a cruise with my friends.
