Comments:

Hi - I went to PSU and majored in Animal Science (pre-vet-med), but met Chip and decided could not spend another four years in Vet school. Chip and I got married in 1974. We went to work at DuPont - where my Dad worked - just until I figured out what I wanted to do - well guess they fished-me-in - because I was there for nearly 40 years before retiring in 2012. Chip, an Electron Microscopist, retired in 2017.

I loved my work because I traveled all over the world and met new people and experienced different cultures. In addition to my Six Sigma work, I also managed change, communications, and training for our SAP implementation and our Knowledge Management and Collaboration Program. The business I worked in is DuPont Sustainable Solutions - so we help people and businesses live in a safer and cleaner world.

I am sad to see the names on our "In Memory" page. Some I knew well and feel a loss.

I used to hate my yearbook picture - but it's looking pretty good these days. I am looking forward to next reunion. Join the planning group if you can help out.

School Story:

Grew up in Drexel Hill - Penn Avenue - right next to the School of the Holy Child. So I went there for Kindergarten but changed to St Andrew's for the next eight years. Switched to DHJH for 9th grade and entered the world of public school.
Worked as an aide to Mr. Strange (drew biopics on blackboard), library aide (I love books), and Royal Triangle - which means I had no clue what to do during study hall. As a member of the Biology Club, I worked on the INFAMOUS Alice's Un-Restaurant Dance.
My favorite teachers were Mr. Granger - World Cultures I in ninth grade. I had a big crush on him. I also like Mr. Spencer, Chem - who liked to tease my lab partner and me (Mona K.), but was way cool otherwise. I was told he would go in the storeroom to laugh at us - at least it wasn't in our face. Mr. Hamsher taught Creative Writing and was very encouraging.

Reunion Committee?

Yes

Which Elementary School did you attend?
