Fondest memories of your days at Central:
BEING IN THE BAND WAS FOREMOST AND BEING AN OFFICER MY SENIOR YEAR. DURING THAT TIME, I BECAME AN AVID READER AND CONTINUE TO THIS DAY. I LOVED THE IDEA OF TRAVELING AND HAVE TAKEN THAT TO MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD.  MOST OF ALL, SOME OF THE FRIENDS THAT I HAD BACK THEN, ARE STILL FRIENDS TO THIS DAY..THAT IS THE BEST PART.

 

My life since graduation:  
AFTER GRADUATION FROM CENTRAL, I ATTENDED UNIV OF CHATTANOOGA, LATER UTC, AND GRADUATED WITH A BA IN MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY.  I WORKED FOR NEARLY 27 YEARS AT ERLANGER HOSPITAL BEGINNING IN THE LABORATORY AS A REGISTERED MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIST, AND PROGRESSING INTO NUCLEAR MEDICINE, OBTAINING REGISTRATION BY THREE DIFFERENT REGISTERING BODIES..IN 1990, I LEFT ERLANGER FOR LOUISIANA WHERE I WAS OFFERED A POSITION AT WEST JEFFERSON MEDICAL CENTER AS A SENIOR NUCLEAR MEDICINE TECHNOLOGIST. DURING MY TIME THERE I BECAME REGISTERED IN MEDICAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY OBTAINING 2 DIFFERENT REGISTRATIONS IN GENERAL AND VASCULAR ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

IN NOVEMBER 2006, I RETIRED FROM THAT POSITION SECONDARY TO MEDICAL REASONS.  I CONTINUE TO TRAVEL BOTH DOMESTICALLY AND ABROAD AND LOOK FORWARD TO DOING SO FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.  I CONTINUE TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH MANY OF THE FOLKS WITH WHOM I ATTENDED CENTRAL AND ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO THE REUNIONS AS THEY COME ALONG.
