Which reunions have you attended?  
Which was your favorite?  

Fondest memories of your days at Central:
Being a part of Central High School.  Football games at Chamberlain  Field, Glee Club trips, sock hops, Merry Mac slumber parties, standing around the rotunda talking, walking up those creaky steps.  I really enjoyed my high school years.


My life since graduation:  
I married Jimmy Bean from Rossville High in Dec 1960, and started working as a secretary.  Went to work for TVA in 1962 and took early retirement in 1995 after 32 years.  I was in administration as an editor/writer when I retired.  Jim was a corporate pilot and I went with him a lot of times so I got to see a lot of places I probably wouldn't have.  He died in 1992 and I have not remarried.  We have a son Alan (46) and a daughter Donna (43) both here in Chattanooga, 3 grandchildren and 5 great-grands.  One grandson has been to Iraq and due to go back in Nov (he has twins 2 yrs old!) Since retirement, I do a variety of  things - travel a little bit, root for the Vols, spend time with the grandkids, read, do a little writing, whatever comes up!  Am looking forward to seeing a lot of old buddies at the reunion.
