Comments:

Graduated in 66 and entered the University of Nevada, Reno. Graduated in 70 and was also commissioned as a 2Lt, US Army. Law school in California from 70-73. Married in 72 and we have 2 children, who are also now attorneys. We have 4 grandchildren. Passed the bar exams in Nevada and California. Clerked for the NV Supreme Ct. 73-74. Active duty US Army 74-78 as a JAG. Returned to Reno, NV in 78 and entered private law practice. I finally retired from the practice of law in 2019, after 46 years of active practice as a lawyer. My son Nathan, is the Chief Civil Deputy of the Washoe County District Attorney’s office. My daughter Natalie, is a Senior attorney with the California Court of Appeals, 3rd District, in Sacramento, CA. Her husband, Matt is also an attorney and a partner in a Sacramento, CA headquartered law firm. Lots of lawyers in the Edwards family, as my Grandfather, uncle, and father were also attorneys. We need a doctor or engineer from the grandchildren! My oldest grandchild, AJ, accepted an appointment to the Naval Academy, Annapolis, class of 24. I spent more time on the ski hill teaching and skiing during the 19/20 ski season and ran the Senior Silver Ski program at Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe. Joined the NV Army Nat. Guard in 1979 as a JAG. Retired as Colonel, NV State Judge Advocate, in 2003. Certified Alpine Ski Instructor at Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe. My wife is an retired elementary teacher. We traveled to Paris in 06 and were able to find PAHS, gym & football field, Bel Manior, Teen Club, and old apartment in Ville D'Avary. It was great fun. We returned to France in 2016 for a driving trip from Bordeaux to Mougins/Cannes, Provence and back to Paris via the TGV. We were in country for Bastille Day, my first since 1966. Each return to France and Paris rekindles so many wonderful memories of 64-66 at PAHS.

School Story:

The football, basketball, and track teams at PAHS from 64-66 were pretty good and I really enjoyed playing on those teams. I was able to see a lot of France, London, and Germany on those athletic away trips. The trips to play football in London in 65 and to run in the track championships in Nuremburg were especially great. Most of the students at PAHS seemed to come from the east coast or south but I came from Calif. I had two really close friends, Jack Wiseman and Leland Andrew, who also came from the same Jr. High and High School in Calif. I made contact with Leland in Minn. but completely lost contact with Jack after he left in the summer of 65. Does anyone know what happened to him? If so, I'd appreciate any information. I really enjoyed my Paris years, 64-66, and the school, students and faculty, were simply outstanding, academically, athletically, and socially. It just doesn't get any better than to be a Jr and Sr in high school and live in Paris.
