Which did you enjoy the most?  

Fondest memories of your days at Central:
Friendships made.  What a delight it was to get ready to go to school each morning to see friends.

My life since graduation:  
In 1961, I married my junior/high school sweetheart, Herschell C. Hicks.  We have been married for over 48 years.  When we married, Herschell was a commerical printer, but four years into our marriage he accepted the call of God on his life and became a minister of the gospel. He served as interim pastor for three churches before becoming a full time pastor.  We have been at our present church for over 25 years. All those years of standing and talking around the rotunda were not in vain; they taught me how to talk with people.
The ministry has brought changes in our lives.  I always had a love for music but never thought much about it, but the Lord 'fine-tuned' my voice and gave me a talent to use for Him along side Herschell.  Then 25 years ago, the Lord began to open doors for me to speak at ladies banquets, conferences, and seminars.  I truly enjoy this area of my life. 
Herschell and I have no children, but in reality we have many children through the ministry. 
We have traveled to several foreign countries on mission trips and have some hair-rising stories to share. 
Looking forward to seeing FRIENDS again at the reunion.
