Comments:

I left PAHS in June '60 when my father transfered to Ft. Benning, Georgia.

I graduated from Jordan High School in Columbus, Georgia in '62.

I graduated from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas in '66.

I married my college sweetheart in 1975.

I worked in the apparel manufacturing business for over 40-years.

Both my mother & father are burried at Arlington National.

I'm retired now and just "kicking back" and enjoying life to it's fullest. Jamie and I still love to travel; enjoy flying, sailing, and playing golf.

God bless the PAHS class of '62. I have such wonderful memories of this time in my live and feel so fortunate to have spent these years in such a wonderful and exciting setting as Paris.

School Story:

What a magic period in my life that I will never forget and times that will always be cherished.

We lived in Fontainbleau and I rode the weekly bus ride into Paris every week to live in the dorm.

I played center on the PAHS football team and was a starter my Freshman year when the regular center and upperclassman broke his leg (can't remember his name). I remember and looked up to guys like John Davenport, John Foxworth, and Pete Hildago.

I also remember how proud I was to wear my Red & Black letter jacket with the big Red "P" on the breast and Paris accross the back. I can also remember wearing my Black Watch sport coat (with matching tie) which I thought was pretty cool at the time.

What great times these were and a period in my life that I will always remember.

Hey Donna, did you not live in Fontainbleau? I believe we rode the bus together each week.

Judy, you were always one of the "hot girls" I always admired from a distance (I was a Freshman at PAHS). I hope this day is a perfect one for you and your family. God bless!
