After graduation I went to college and got my Bachelors degree from VCU in Special Education. I've been teaching off and on in various venues - most recently in elementary ed., but back in Special Ed. again- for now! Somewhere in there I received my Masters in Ed. from George Mason Univ.  

I married my high school sweetheart, Fred (sadly, a graduate of West Springfield HS), in 1982. We have 4 great kids: Chris (24) - moved out, bought a house, and became a DC policeman (not in that order); Steven (21) - another WSHS grad! Currently living in LA seeking his fame and maybe a little fortune (college wasn't his thing!); David (19) - yet another WSHS grad!! Currently attending Syracuse Univ. A hard worker who loves life! and Nina (15) - ANOTHER WSHS grad-to-be!! All teen-ager (need I say more??). We also have 3 awesome golden retrievers! 

We have moved all over - SC, CA, and most recently spent 4 years in Italy. But we are not military (though we probably should have been) and something keeps blowing us back to the No. VA area! 

Life has been kind to us and we are just waiting to see what is next on our travel itinerary. I still keep in touch with a few of my friends from Lee, and would love to hear from others. 'Had a blast at the most recent reunion and look forward to the next one! It was great to reconnect with classmates.

1976-1977 my dad moved in the first half of my senior year. I went on and graduated in California and though that was all the school I needed. But as you see with my title I went to a lot more schooling. I became a nurse to support the family as I was married and went to school to become a ordained minister. I have been divorced and have now been married to my wonderful wife Teresa for 22 years. I have been pastoring in different churches in Kansas for the past 20 years and I do some nursing to keep my lic. active. I have a 31 year old boy in California and a 27 year old daughter in Calif. My baby is graduating this year and is turning 18. We lost a daughter over 5 years ago in an auto accident she would have been 21. Looking for Mike Moisure or any of the old guys I hung out with just to see how you all are doing. I have had 4 different high schools for all four years so it is hard to remember all of the names. And unfortunately my daughter says it is the age also. But I don't think so!?!?! Peace in Jesus

I attended Robert E. Lee from 1974-1978. I did not listen to my parents at the time and I dropped out in 1978. Did not graduate with the class, but I did attend classes to obtain my G.E.D. After doing so, listening to my parents and my Guidance Counselor, Mr. Riddle, I did something with my life.

I entered the military, U.S. Army, 101st Airborne, and have a very distinguished career. After leaving the Military, I became an Investigator for the States Attorney Office in Annapolis, Maryland.

In 1988, my wife and I relocated to Las Vegas, NV. Once there, we were blessed with 3 beautiful children. Two girls and one boy. After listening to us tell about 'back East" our oldest, who is six years old, tells everyone we're moving back East to Maryland so we can make snow angels and enjoy the seasons with MOM and DAD.

WE plan on moving back to Maryland within two years, and will be trying to look everyone up to say hi.

So glad for modern technologies, so we could look up my old Alma Mater to say hi now. Take care and hope to visit soon the Robert E. Lee Lancers.

 Life is great!  After Lee High I followed my high school sweetheart (Dave) to St. Louis, Missouri.  Finished my undergraduate work in Psychology at the University of Missouri while Dave finished a short tour in the U.S. Coast Guard.  Spent 5 years there, then moved to the land of the rich and famous (well Geo. Bush anyway), Kennebunkport, Maine; a beautiful coastal community on the rocky shores of Maine.  We've spent the last 15 years here doing a number of things.  I went back to school for my elementary teacher's certification and taught 5th Grade for 8 years.  Left that to help Dave with his new surveying firm.  Our land surveying company, Livingston-Hughes Surveyors, has been around for 8 years now and is doing great.  Dave runs the office and I run the house.  We work great together.  (yesterday was our 19th wedding anniversary)  In the midst of all that we managed to have two wonderful children, Elliot who is now 13 years old and Eliza, now 10.   We're into skiing, snowboarding, serious road cycling, hiking, family and friends.  Dave and I would love to hear from you.

10/3/07: Life continues to be great. Sent our oldest to college this year. Just had our 24th wedding anniversary. Looking forward to a 30th Reunion next year. Hope one is in the works.

I attended George Mason University and when my family moved to El Paso, TX a year later I moved with them. I attended University of Texas there. I met my husband there-Edward Rodriguez-and we were married Nov. 14,1981. I lived in El Paso for a little over 20 years. 

We have 2 daughters. Simone is now 13,soon to be 14 in August. Alexandra is 11. I worked with Southwestern Bell telephone in El Paso for almost 20 years. 

My husband was offered a promotion with his company in 2000 and I convinced him to take it. That's how I ended up back in Virginia. I loved living here before and really enjoyed attending Lee high. I now work with Kestler Financial Group as a marketing support rep in Leesburg, VA. The whole family really loves it here in Virginia. I'm glad I came back!

We live in Stafford County and I don't miss Springfield one bit; this is close enough to Northern VA!

When I'm not working, which is most of the time, my daughter Megan and I go camping a lot and I help my wife coaching her soccer team. My favorite thing to do is hang out in my garage and tinker with the cars.

I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder (I’m glad to hear those of you out there are loving it too!) in 1982
with a degree in Religious Studies.  I moved to La Paz, Bolivia for two years in 1983 and worked as the supervisor of a Maternal-Infant Nutrition Program.  Upon my return, I moved to northeast D.C, where I worked for Sojourners Magazine.  In 1993, I decided to go for it and entered a Lutheran seminary in Berkeley, CA (Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary at the Graduate Theological Union).  (The Bay Area’s awesome too!)  I finished in 1999, also enjoying the time back in school to get an MA in Historical Theology.

 I was called to be the Partnership Pastor at Peace Lutheran Church in Danville, CA. My role entails living and working in northern South Africa with our partner parish to help strengthen a friendship started between the two communities in the early ‘90’s when the democracy in South Africa emerged.  (We’re in the Limpopo Valley!, near the river of the same name that flooded in 2000.)

I’ve never taken the marital plunge—I think “The Flying Nun” was a bad influence on me.   (Those adults were right about TV’s power after all!  And I can’t fly either—maybe it’s because Lutherans don’t wear habits!)  I wouldn’t trade this adventure of working to be one global family for anything--It means that I’m lucky to have lots of kids!

Sorry to have missed all the recent festivities—I hope everyone had a wonderful time!  Will anyone be able to post pictures?

It would be awesome to at least get caught up virtually!  Be well and peace to you all.

Since leaving Lee High School, I attended Radford for a year, got married, got divorced...then life finally began...obtained my BS in Parks & Recreation from George Mason University and became a Park Ranger. This was fun, but not a career for me, so I then obtained a position as Sports Specialist out of the Pentagon's HQ Army Recreation Office. This was a wonderful job which included begin one of the Army Ten Miler's Race Directors. Then while attending University of North Carolina's School of Sports Mgmt I met a Crazy Cajun from Louisiana. Eventually I moved to Louisiana and yes, I did it again, I got married. My husband Blaine is a wonderful person and a very involved father to our son Dylan (born in 1994). I also went back to school this time I obtained a BA in Education from University of Southwestern Louisiana. Life is wonderful down here in South Louisiana and yes, we did have waterfront property for a while following Hurricane Rita, but everything is back to normal. My husband Blaine and I helped build a beautiful our home among the sugarcane fields of South Louisiana. Since we are in the country our animal family grows as people drop off animals frequently. Presently we have four dogs and three cats that we know of, LOL. If anybody passes through South Louisiana's Iberia Parish, known as the saltiest (thanks to the salt mines), sweetest (thanks to the sugarcane), and spiciest (thanks to the Tabasco Factory), so stop by, the crawfish are GREAT!

Have a Masters Degree in Ocean Engineering from MIT (who woulda thought).   Joined Exxon out of grad school and have worked with them ever since.  Have held various jobs over my career in Houston and New Orleans, and the latest is in Qatar (which is in the Middle East near Saudi Arabia).  We've been here for a year already and will likely be here for two more or so.

I've been married to the same wonderful woman, Annette, for almost 16 years.  We have two great kids, son Daniel 10 and daughter Jessica 7.  Daniel is into art and all kinds of sports, in particular SOCCER!  Jessie is an aspiring gymnast.

I've only kept in touch with a few friends from REL, but have heard from many ever since I posted to this site several years ago.  It's always nice to hear from old friends.   I was actually able to hook up with Jim Labovites and Ed Wood out in Denver this summer while we were back in the States on our summer home leave.  It was really great seeing them and catching up.  It would be great to hear from others out there.   Cookie man, where are you?

I have a BS in Economics from George Mason and an MBA from UNC-Chapel Hill. I worked for the Comptroller of the Currency as a National Bank Examiner for 11 years. I lived in St. Louis, Kansas City, Miami and Charlotte, NC. Then, I worked as VP Financial Planning & Analysis for Jefferson Pilot Communications in Greensboro, NC until the company was sold. I now work as a VP for BB&T.

I got married to Derrick Heard, a Chemical Engineer in 1995 and we were blessed with beautiful twin girls in 2000, Emma and Jillian.

We lost my sister Penny to cancer in 1990 and I still miss her every day. My other sisters all live in Northern VA -- Margaret ('78) is a CPA for Ted Lerner, Helen ('81) is a teacher at Chantilly High School and Caroline ('88) does top secret things for the Navy. My parents still live in the area and my dad has worked at Home Depot in Springfield since he "retired".

I don't do a great job of keeping up-- I do send an annual Christmas letter that I hope is an interesting and amusing description of my life, which is mostly trite and mundane. If you want to get on the list, drop me an e-mail.

After graduating in 79 I went to Montana State University and received a BS in Film Production. As many of you may remember I was the one with the camera always shooting pictures around school. Just before college I sold off all of my still equipment and bought movie equipment. I moved to Los Angeles CA 6 months after finishing college. Currently I film commercials, Public Service Announcements, infomercials etc. Worked on several features in between all that other stuff. In 2001 I moved to Northern California and volunteer at Weimar Institute  just east of Sacramento, doing medical videos between the paying jobs in LA.

I was married in 1987 currently have two children Amelia 11 and Kaleb 7.

Got my MFA at University of N.C. at Greensboro and have been working on the theater company since '98.

After leaving Lee High, in September of '79, I joined the U.S. Army for 3 years.  I spent a fabulous year in Izmir, Turkey and a not so great year in Texas. When my time was up I went to work for the CIA for six years!  Spent a lot of time traveling around the globe, and loving every minute of it...I plan to some day finish filling up my U.S. Passport.

In 1988 I went to Maine for a vacation and fell in love with New England.  I have been here ever since...What's not to love...the ocean, the mountains, the fall foliage, no beltway traffic!  I live in South Berwick with my two kids, Sarah and Alex.

I have been working at the University of New Hampshire for almost 12 years. I went to school while working full time and finally received my AA. Now I am working on my BA in Human Resources Management... amazing, 40 and still learning!  You gotta love it!

After High School I got married and went to work for my Father managing his food service stores. The job and the marriage both got old quickly and I corrected both problems. I'm now single and work for a government consulting firm as a Oracle database administrator.

I never had kids or remarried. I'm enjoying my freedom and am still living in Northern Virginia. I enjoy camping, environmentally responsible off-road driving, R/C modeling, and still enjoy going out for a few drinks (some things never change) but don't do it at the end of Oriole Avenue or at the 'rock' any more.

I'm still in touch with a few old Lee HS alumni like Cliff Williams, Steve Barlow, Paul Caussin, Dave Buerger, and Pete Gauthier and would love to hear from any old friends to see how you are doing.

I did a MS and PhD in computer science at UMass (Amherst) and then joined Lockheed Martin's Advanced Tech Labs. I'm currently a Manager of artificial intelligence programs. In the Reserves I did a short stint in Kosovo (summer of 99) and am now a Battalion 
Commander with 5 companies of drill sergeants. 
For fun I've taken up white water - canoeing, rafting, and over the past couple of years, kayaking. On the weekends I can generally be found on a river or creek somewhere, or else in a deep sleep, recovering.

My life at this time revolves around my two teenagers (Patrick - 19, and Asia - 15).

Little did I know in 1979 that I would be buying Lady Clairol "Color me Blonde" for my son, and hip huggers and platform shoes for my daughter.  At least they have refrained from piercing anything but their ears.

I have been an artist for the past several years and have recently become involved in ballroom dancing.  Kentucky is a great place to live and people actually do have indoor plumbing here! If I get bored, I can always drive along the fence line and  "MOO!" and the cattle follow my car searching for the missing cow!  Fun and excitement!!! 

All kidding aside, the "Bluegrass State" looks a lot like the pictures of Scotland and the horses are some of the fastest and most beautiful in the world.  (And there is nothing
more fun than winning $200.00 on a $2.00 bet at the track).

I would like to hear from old friends, and wish everyone the best!

I met my gorgeous wife Ruth and convinced her to marry me in 1985.  We were blessed with our son Zachary in 1993, who is quite the accomplished baseball player, golfer, archer, marksman, actor, singer, and a brown belt in karate to boot.

In 1996 we packed up and bid farewell to the DC area and moved to Tampa, FL.  We have fallen in love with the area and live in a beautiful little community north of the city.  We have a standard poodle named Doc and spend most of our time at home hanging by the pool.  The weather is gorgeous year round and we are thankful that we took the leap of faith to move here when we did.

I have been working for Mission Critical Solutions for 7 years as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing and it is a fabulous job.  The company has been blessed with tremendous growth and it is a wild ride to put it mildly.  I am traveling quite a bit these days as we land contracts across the country.  You never know, I may be coming to a city near you.  I would love to hear from any old friends who may be out there.  Take care and God bless.

After graduation I joined the Air Force and got to see the world for 9 years. Then I went to work for the Federal Government in the DC area. About 5 years ago I left the government to work for a non-profit company to develop education programs.

I missed hearing about the 10 and 20 year reunions. If anyone has any information about the 25 I would love to find out more information.

Over the years I have run in to more of my sister's class (class of 78) than my own. I remember most of you who have posted to this alumni site and would love to see how things are going.

I attended LHS 76-77, Look back at my life, and wished that I'd not been such a rebel. God I wished I'd played football and baseball for LHS. A lot of abuse growing up, parents dying one year apart at age 10 and 11, being passed around to relatives who didn't care, kept me from getting close to the people I cared about. Missed out on a lot of great relationships that way.  Like to apologize deeply for that. I ended up enlisting for 13 years (US Navy). Did manage to finished my BS in Workforce Management. Worked a few computer jobs and roadhouse type jobs -bouncer and being bounced after the Military, still train hard in Martial Arts, figure I'd learn something after 29 years. Hold several black belts. Work as an IT Specialist for USDA. Very Happily married, 2 beautiful kids, (Starr and Zane), my anti-drug, cows out back, horses in front, still a rebel and have my hair. (Hard to Change). Like to hear from anyone who remembers me. LeRoy, McMullens, Marleen Riggs, Kathy Carroll, Sherrie Mendelsohn ! LeRoy you know how I feel about you,  Sherrie and Kathy, I love you.  You ladies-Wasn't for you, Who knows where I would ended up at.  Marleen-WOW, Still think about you.  Cindy Blackston -man was I nuts.    McMullens- My idol. Well got to go.  Lee was the Best. There's an older image in the mirror. Oh my God we've turned into our parents!!! 10 more years and we will be old f*rts.
God Bless,

I am hoping to reconnect with friends I haven't seen in years. Life goes fast, doesn't it? I spent almost 20 years in Kansas, just moved back to Virginia two years ago. I have a Masters in Special Education and have been teaching/early intervention for the past 22 years. I have two beautiful children, Katie is 13, Kyle is 8. Would love to hear from any of you that remember me.

After High School, I worked 1 year then headed to Liberty Baptist College (LU now) I've been married to the same man for 21 years and have 2 daughters- Erin, 20 is a freshman at LU and Valerie is 13. In 1987, we moved to Northern Delaware and in 2005, moved back Virginia. I don't keep up with too many from high school- but I would like to know what a few old friends are doing... Who knows, maybe one day, I will surface at a reunion.

Went from Lee to UVA, back to No. Va, down to Norfolk, and have now been in the Baltimore area for the past 15 years or so. Married my college sweetheart, and just celebrated our 20th anniversary last Spring. Have a 16 Y-O son, halfway through his junior year, playing football and basketball (and a little lacrosse) and thinking a lot about college these days. My folks are still in Springfield so I find myself driving past Lee sometimes, and marveling at how much the area has changed.

After leaving Lee High School I still lived in Springfield and worked for the Defense Department for 8 years (I find it hard to believe I ever worked for the DOD, because I'm such a bleeding heart liberal dove!). I started feeling antsy at the age of 25 and felt I needed a change, so I packed up and moved to Kansas City, Missouri, and got a job at a law firm (I absolutely LOVE this city!). I worked full time, attended school part time when I could afford it and had the time, and got my paralegal certificate/degree. I got married for the first time 4 years ago (hadn't planned to ever marry, but then the most wonderful man, John, walked into my life - first marriage for him too). We just bought our first house together. We are fat and happy and loving life (and our two kitties). I'm going to be a "grandma" any day now (my nephew, who's like my son and lives here in Kansas City, is about to be a dad -- he said they're going to have her call me "Aunt Grandma" (I love it!)).

I have to say that I do not have very fond memories of Lee. Being overweight and shy in high school is the kiss of death, plus things at home were not good. I did have a few friends, though, that I'd love to hear from. I'd love to hear from anyone, actually. I've overcome my shyness, so I'm always ready to make new friends, or make new friends out of old friends.

Never ventured far from Springfield. I meet by first husband while bartending at CJ Nickels during college- remember Nickel night! Have two boys, 20 & 17. Divorced but then found a great guy and re-married in 2004. Been with Raytheon in Springfield, Virginia for 19 year. I mentor 6th graders at Lynbrook elementary, the kids are awe struck when I tell them that I went there at their age. Still playing soccer but have switched to indoor and don't get to swim as much as I would like to.

My mom is still living out in Saragota and I work right down the road so still get out there on a weekly basis being the good daughter and helping her keep her house projects going.

My husband I built a beautiful custom home on 5 acres in Fredericksburg and I am loving the woods and wild life around us. Fredericksburg as a lot of charm I'm still discovering. If your in this part of the State look me up.

After graduating from George Mason University with a degree in history, I taught history for a year at Chantilly High School. When that position didn’t go full-time, I worked at the Fairfax Circuit in the Land Records division for a couple of years. In 1987, I joined the staff of the Young Presidents’ Organization/World Presidents’ Organization (YPO-WPO) and have been there ever since.

In 1995 I was transferred to Dallas – where I lived for seven years. In 2002, I was relocated again – this time to New York City.

While in Dallas, I met my partner, Logan – he and I have been together for nine wonderful years. We live in the Chelsea area of Manhattan – which we love!

A tour in the Navy 80-84. A brief career move to Wisconsin for a couple years, three wives, two sons, ( Jason 20, Matt 17 ) & 30 years later I find myself in Chambersburg PA raising a teenager. Travel through Springfield often to see family, seems very different from the place I remembered growing up in. Regret to say that I have loss touch with all my past friends, would love to hear from all of you again.

Graduated from U. of Michigan (and Army ROTC) in 1983, spent 8 years in the Army Nurse Corps; ran into Jody Daniels in the post office in Seoul, S. Korea in December 1986...transferred into the U. S. Public Health Service in 1991 and ended up back in the DC area. Since 2003 I've been living in Falls Church. I retired from active duty in 2008, and went back to being a bed-pan toting, shot giving nurse - and loving it! I ran into Linus Freeman who says everyone from class of '79 is on Facebook so I guess I'll have to overcome my Ludddite leanings and get with it. Hi to all my buddies, shoot me an email and say Hi.
