There ought to be a LAW OF EQUALIZATION for Speed Limits.  It would work this way--you get stuck behind a 106-year-old lady doing 20 MPH under the speed limit for 10 miles (this happens a lot in Florida). Once you get beyond this blue-haired moving road block you should be able to do 20 MPH over the speed limit for 10 miles, or even 10 MPH over the limit for 20 miles, without fear of a speeding ticket. It only seems fair.

Registered Nurse x 25 (!) years, first in Intensive Care, now in Labor & Delivery. Married 25 (!) years, to the same achievement these days! Two sons, age 23 and 14, whom I adore.

Typical middle-class-poor, working mother who loves her job AND her family. Thirty year member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints...very involved volunteering with the women's group.

Lived in Las Vegas x 17 years: love the 24-hr town, the lights, and the great weather.   ( We're five hours from Calif., one hour from mountains & snow and one hour from Lake Mead and water sports! )

I do miss Virginia's beauty a great deal...but too used to the "laid back lifestyle" of life "out west"!

Happiness!     Haze

While I only spent my freshman year at Lee I often think of the friends I made there and still feel connected to the south. I still have the 1966 yearbook and old newspaper clippings of the football games and homecoming events of the 1965/66 school year. The school play was "Oklahoma" and it still remains one of my favorites. I would love to hear from anyone who might possibly remember me especially if Patty Jones is active in the Alumni List.

Although I did not graduate from Lee High School, I attended through my Sophomore year, we moved and I had to complete my last two years at West Springfield, although always felt a part of Lee High School.

I am now divorced with 4 children and 5 grandchildren, so keep busy.

Although I never attended one or your class reunions, maybe be lucky and will attend our 40th.

Congratulations to Frank; Mary; and the Reunion Committee; it was a Reunion beyond compare! I continue to live and work in Georgia for a few more years. I am looking forward to any opportunity to rendezvous with "old" friends.

Graduated from VPI in ’74 with a BArch; became a registered Architect in 1976.First job was with the Department of Navy, Norfolk – lots of overseas travel – even spent a year in GTMO. In 1978 I took a job in southern Honshu, Japan, just outside Hiroshima; a little over two years later I moved to Madrid, Spain, where I lived for the next several years. Returned to the DC area and planned to stay only a year or two, but other things seem to develop here instead. Spent a year at the Naval War College / CNW in Newport, RI, and received a Masters in 1998; spent the next four years on the Hill as a Senate staffer. Intense, long hours, but a wonderful experience! Started SCUBA diving way back when in GTMO, which has become a lifelong passion; became a PADI Master Instructor in 1999 and enjoy teaching. Love exotic locals; do a lot of UW video and photography. Retired in January 2007 and formed my own consulting company – keeps me pretty busy; sometimes I wonder if I really did retire.  Hope everyone is doing well and taking the opportunity to enjoy what life has to offer. Just remember Chauncy Garndener example: Life, after all, is a state of mind.

Left Virginia immediately after high school and moved to Hawaii with my family before attending college in Ohio. Haven't kept in touch with anyone from my class, but would love to hear from anyone that remembers me.

Currently I work in real estate and finance.

Registered Nurse. Have been living in Wilmington, NC for 13 years and love it but not the hurricanes & humidity. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the 50th anniversary because have a 501c3 canine rescue and very involved in its welfare. Would love to hear from and keep in touch with all of you.

I received three degrees in Electrical Engineering (B.S., '73 VA Tech, M.S.E., '77 Purdue, and Professional '87, Univ. of Illinois/ G. Washington Univ., and have worked for over 30 years in various companies including General Motors (Delco Electronics), TRW, Computer Sciences, AT&T Bell Labs, and Argon ST. I was in the concert band at Lee (trumpet) under Phil Rittman, and played with him again in the National Concert Band here in DC until his early death about 10 years ago. I have also played in many local concert bands (Alexandria, King's Park, Fairfax, Mt. Vernon), musicals, and symphonies, and toured to England, Germany, Greece, Italy, and Hawaii with the VA National Symphony (Principal Trumpet), also playing many National Veterans Day concerts with that group in big cities across the U.S. I played on the Lee tennis team two years, and have won a number of club championships in recent years. I was asked to coach the Jefferson HS (now for Science and Technology) tennis team, and we have gone undefeated in the last three years (regular season), and won the Northern Regional Championship this year (2009). We nearly won the state championship twice in these last 3 years. Love teaching and coaching the kids. I'd especially like to hear of activities from classmates from the band, and the math, tennis, cross-country, and rifle teams. Please stop by the house for a visit when you're in town - would love to see you. We had a great school and class, and you all are the best!

When I started as a freshman at Lee along with all of you in 1965 I was reeling from the shock of my Father choosing to retire to Northern Virginia rather than Southern California. I finally made it to California, but to the Bay Area, where, despite the cost of living, it is incredibly gorgeous. But there are times when I miss DC, like in the early Spring, when the air starts to soften and the daffodils poke through in Rock Creek Park.

Married for 22 years to Jeff and have two great adopted boys (32 and 35), our youngest is married but no grandkids yet. I started by own company last year as an independent manufacturers rep for several furniture lines. It's fun although slow right now due to the economy. We hope to retire in Tenn., and build a house on property we bought in the Smokey Mountains on Barr Lake.

Just spent the last 2 years deployed to Afghanistan supporting our Men and Woman of the Armed Forces.  I am back in town until May of this year and then heading back to Afghanistan for 1 more year. If any of my former 1979 classmates live near Ashburn, VA send me an e-mail so we can get together over drinks and catch up.

Found this website by accident. So much fun to read familiar names & see faces from the past.

Paul & I married in '73 after I graduated from Mary Washington. Two beautiful daughters & six wonderful grandchildren.

We traveled all over during Paul's Army career; retired to Louisville, KY for 8 years & are now Hoosiers!

I still work with children & teach swimming on the side.

Update your bios!
