What are your fondest memories of Chattanooga Central High School?
I remember friendships, school spirit, being in the band, football games, formal dances. .oh, and going to class was in there somewhere!  I remember pep meetings in the auditorium and around the rotunda; working in the library; being an usher; and, mostly, friendships.  . friendships that last a lifetime and endure years of separations, then pick up right where they left off.
 
My Life Since Graduation
Ken and I have been married for 40 years this fall.  We have two children: Kendra, 29, and Andy 25.  I worked off and on as an Executive Secretary and Administrative Assistant, but for most of our 40 years, I have been a homemaker and stay-at-home mom.  Ken travels quite a bit and I get to go with him on many of his trips, so I am at home living out of suitcases.  We love Disney World and usually have a season pass - it beats going to a psychiatrist!  When we need to suspend reality, we head down to see the mouse.  Our favorite getaway is cruising, however!
