Wow! I'm not sure if you all remember me; I left in 98 to go to another school. I remember most of you though. Right now I manage a cell phone store; I have been here for 6 years. I currently live in Almont, with my husband Scott and my daughter Zoie, which will be turning 5 in December. I am working at getting my bachelors degree in accounting at Walsh College. I would love to see all of you at a reunion if you all have one, please get in touch with me. It's great to see how well all of you are doing. I actually lost touch will every one. I saw Beth Monteleone at Lapeer days one year a while ago, but that's about it. If anyone remembers my brother Matt, he has been married for 5 or 6 years or something like that and has 3 kids! He is living north of Attica. Well now that I know this site is here I will have to check back for updates.

My lovely, supportive wife, Kate (Kathy Karlek) and I began the agency in 1988, following my broadcast career in both radio and TV.We've been involved in helping direct the advertising and marketing for dozens of businesses from Michigan to Atlanta.Various special projects and a television promotion/contest I created (patent pending) has us doing a bit of work with Warner Brothers these last couple years. When not mixing it up in the advertising/marketing arena, tennis has become my fit-for-life passion... that and wrestling with our thirteen year old, DJ, who thinks any day now he'll be able to kick my butt. Looking forward to seeing all the old friends this summer. Til then, aloha!

Married Greg Fischer in 1973, moved to North Carolina in '82 and started Fischer Media Group (ok -- that was Greg) in '88, where I am currently "employed" as a bookkeeper. I also have a fantasy life in which I am a worldfamous tennis player, in demand on courts across the country because of my good sportsmanship, and because I am the "Best Darn Loser in the World!" We have two kids -- Meagan (22), soon to be a college graduate, and DJ (13), who plans to buy the house across the street and work with his dad and me.

Hi everyone. After high school I attended CMU for a year and then transferred to UM-Flint where I earned my Bachelors in English w/ a teaching certificate. I started teaching at Zemmer in 1992, transferred to Lapeer West in 1994 and have been there ever since. (Sometimes I think I am stuck in a perpetual state of immaturity being at West--still! But really I love my career and couldn't be happier.) I currently teach Senior English and have my Masters in Teaching. I married a wonderful man in 1999 and have two adorable kids--Caleb is 4 and Ella is almost 2. We recently built a new house in Davison and plan on staying here for quite a while.

Howdy! It's "Rev" - remember me? I graduated from Hyles-Anderson College with a BS in Theology in 1980, married a gal I met there. Entered the ministry in Houston, TX where my wife was from. She left 7 years and 3 kids later. Remarried 3 years later to the love of my life, Towana - a '72 Durand grad. She had 4 kids by her bad marriage (Did anyone ever get marital counselling in the 70's?!) and I adopted her 4. Worked at GM for 6 years, bought out, went back into the ministry - still an evangelist in the Nazarene church - and added an ADN to my list, which allows me to be an RN of all things! Towana happens to be an RN, too, so we take travel assignments all over the country thanks to the nursing shortage. We're living in the same house the bus used to pick me up from - 3648 Genesee Rd. Stop by if you want to chat about old times - everyone's welcome!

Well, after 25 years I'm still in school! I plan to finish my doctorate at the University of Houston.I'm pursuing my degree in Language, Literacy, and Language Acquisition. I'm only in the most political field of the day, you know the whole language-phonics debate and all that garbage! Texas is the most conservative place ever. I think I'm one of five democrats in the whole state. If you support George Bush for president we need to talk. I am the mother of two beautiful girls, Lauren 12, and Kaitlyn 4. I tried being married twice before I got it right. My husband is a doctor and of Greek origin. Opah!!! Besides attending the university, I teach in the Spring school district as a reading specialist and teach courses at the univ. I refuse to get old, and do everything I can to combat it. I remember we had the best graduation party ever in 1974!!!! Are we having a 25th reunion any time soon?I was in Lapeer last winter, wow has it changed!!! At least it was void of cowboys and big hair!!!It would be great to hear from anyone! Rock and roll rules!

I'm currently the Cultural Specialist for the Carman/Ainsworth Native American Education Program in Flint Michigan. I cover 8 Elementary buildings in the Carman/Ainsworth and Westwood Heights school districts. I teach 4 after school Cultural classes in each building between January and April, with our Native registered students. I research the topic tribe or tribes and cordinate the information into booklets and projects for the students. Our program does a full week in 1 building every year. This is called "Awareness Week". We bring in presenters from storytellers to dancers, and work with every student in the building. I cordinate all of the Cultural activites we do with the students. We also have a week of "Day Camp" the week after school is out. I also cordinate the Cultural activites done with students during this time.

After chasing my dream career in electonics and avionics in the Marine Corps, I moved south to Atlanta; expanded my interest spent 7 years selling, repairing and installing industrial paint equipment. Cross training led me paint and coatings sales in Tampa, Fla and Virginia Beach, VA. Having the best of both careers, I'm still selling coatings but also have colateral duties as an IT manager and do computer network administration for a Novell and MicroSoft local area networks. During my spare work time, I am designing a website with an online store, beta testing software, or locating business opportunites using formal EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) or the web.I met my wife in Atlanta we have a boy and girl; built a house in Suffolk, Va on the river in 1995. Time permitting, I enjoy a day on the river fishing with my kids, or a round of golf in this vacation paradise. Suffice to say I don't miss the snow!

After graduation I worked construction for a couple of years. Went back to school in 1977 and graduated from Grand Rapids Community College with an associates in 1979. Ran out of money and joined the Navy in 1980. I served on both coasts in three different submarines (USS Benjamin Franklin, USS Birmingham, and USS Honolulu). Spent 11 of the greatest years of my life in Hawaii. I loved everything about the place. Went from a 30 to a 10 handicap (golf) and met my wife. Finished up my Bachelors Degree in 1995 at Hawaii Pacific University and took an early retirement from the Navy shortly thereafter. Moved back to Hadley for a couple of years but there isn't much use for an ex-submariner in Michigan. I landed a good job with a government contractor down in Crystal City, Virginia. I am a Logistician for a small company that provides logistic support to the Navy. I am surrounded by great people and I couldn't be happier. I am married and have two great kids, Ashley (13) and Christopher (11). I can't believe it's been over thirty years since we graduated. I wish all of you the best. Drop me a line if you remember me. It would be good to hear from you. kenneth.gordert@gte.net

WOW, what a great web sight! Okay my life story since Lapeer West. I headed off to the navy and was rejected for color blindness. I decided to chase my passion of music. Spent 3 years at Mott College catching up on some Gen. Ed classes then I enrolled at Michigan State in 79. I was very fortunate to win a scholarship on Trumpet (EAT YOUR HEART OUT JOE DOBOS). Received my B.A. in Music ED and proceeded to teach for several years. While at MSU I became an arranger and drill writer for the SPARTAN MARCHING BAND. Then I taught a few years then headed off toArizona State University where I taught trumpet and was also principal arranger and field instructor for the SUNDEVIL Marching Band. From that point on Istarted writing arrangements and field shows for HS Marching Bands, Michigan State University, ASU and also several top Competition Drum and Bugle Corps. It is here I have my true passion of judging shows and demonstrating rehearsal techniques at the World Championships each year. I still play my trumpet daily and no longer teach but am a member of the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra.Maeila and Deb W would love to hear from you. We can share those band memories.

Hey! Thanks Julie, for the tip to this site. Doesn't seem possible for it to have been thirty years!I have fond memories of ticking off Mr. Nugent in Jr. High and watching his face turn beet red. We thought he was gonna pop! I remember Ken and Keith Nagy switching core classes without Mr. Nugent or Mr. Lilley (I think) catching on.Would love to hear from any and all classmates! I only wish I had dated the love of my life back in school! Joanie (Germani) and I have been together now going on three years. We have been engaged a year on April 18, which is the day I closed on a piece of property I had trying to buy for over ten years. This little piece of land used to belong to my grandmother and was sold out of the family back in the eighties. It is so good to own a part of my heritage.

After graduation I attended Michigan State University and graduated with a Bachelors in social science. I then moved to Dallas, Texas and worked for a sales company for a couple years. I moved to Denver Colorado in 1983 and have been here ever since. I worked for Budget Rent A Car in their regional accounting office for 5 years as a supervisor. When they relocated to Dallas, I decided to stay in Denver and went to work for the State of Colorado as an office manager. I work for the Colorado Student Loan Program managing a unit of 15 people who work with students and the banks, to keep their loans in a current status. I am not married and have no children but have kept quite busy managing semi pro football teams for the past 6 years. Even though the season is June through August, I am busy year round recruiting, ordering uniforms and equipment, hiring coaches and staff, coordinating games,and practices and doing charity games in the off season.

After graduating from Lapeer West I attended Oklahoma Christian College for one year, majoring in art. Durring the 77-78 school year several friends and myself were booked to see the Sex Pistols in Tulsa Oklahoma (during their only US tour), but a freak snowstorm shut down all the roads and we never got to Tulsa. VERY REGREATFUL! I returned to Lapeer and worked as a custodian at Lapeer East for about a year, saving money for my education. I took away many very funny stories from that year as a custodian. I enrolled in Grand Valley State University (Grand Rapids, MI) as a film major and graduated in 1983. After graduation I stayed in GR managing Public Relations and Marketing services for different agencies. While in GR I also wrote for "Grand Rapids Magazine", "On The Town" and the "Grand Rapids Press". I continued to make films and won first place for a documentary and a music video that I produced. Around 1986 I co-founded “The T-Bones” a blues rock band that became well known in west Michigan and Chicago. We played at Cabaret Metro (Chicago) several times and opened for BB King, Charlie Daniels, Johnny Winter and others. Eventually we releases a CD, "Stripped To The Bone", on Snake Handler Records and got radio play on independent stations in Europe and the USA. With video projects, music, writing and a full time job I was a busy little bee - for a while anyway. I also did publicity for a John Waters (Director of Hair Spray, CryBaby, and Pecker) speaking engagement in GR. After the event a few of us went out and partied with John after the program - MANY interesting memories. As the economy crashed in late 80's early 90's my band broke up, my girl friend left and I looked for change. I sold most of my belongings and moved to the Peoples Republic of China in 1991. Believe it or not, it is true! I worked with an American CPA helping western companies open business operations in China. After that I got a position with Internet Services Corp. as Asia Regional Manager and oversaw operations for China, Hong Kong, Korea, Philippines, Malaysia, South Africa and India. I got to do an awful lot of traveling and learned a hell of a lot about the world and myself. While in China I meet my wife who is Chinese and now a US citizen. We moved back to the good old USA in 1999 and I began working as Sr. Manager of Marketing and Communications for a high-tech start up outside of the Washington DC area. Spending almost eight years traveling and living in developing countries wore me out. I feel like I am still recovering. I am just now starting to work on music again and am starting a new script project. What is in the future ??? only God knows.

Hello everyone! Wow! It has been 20 years since I have seen or heard from most if not all of you!! Our reunion is quickly approaching and this year I am planning on attending. I am doing well and very happy. After high school, I ended up going to Ferris State (which many of the Lapeerites did back then) and got a degree in Criminal Justice...then decided to try the jet setting mode and do some traveling from Europe for a month to around the country and landed in Colorado for a few years. Then...as a lot of you experienced...Michigan came a calling. I ended back here (Flint) and worked for Genesee County for 5 years as a juvenile probation officer while getting my masters degree at MSU (Go STATE!). I got married (6 years this Saturday - April 29th) to my husband Eric. We have two kids (Ty - 4 and Annika - 2). Some of you may have seen us on the news or in the paper, she was the new years baby of 2004 in Genesee County(our 15 minutes of fame). We currently live in Goodrich where my husband is a teacher (with Jim Rice) and I work for Oakland County as a supervisor in Community Corrections (to explain what I do would take way too long for me to describe). Looking forward to seeing you all in the next few months!! If anyone wants to, you can reach me at petersonkar@co.oakland.mi.us

I have been living in Houston, TX for the past 7 years. I decided I had enough of the snow and ice. So instead, I just go visit it knowing I can leave it. I got married in 2002 to John, whom I met in Houston. We don't have any kids at this time, just 2 dogs and a cat. We LOVE to travel. I currently work for BP (British Petroleum) as an financial coordinator/accountant. Feel free to drop me a line mmckee1@houston.rr.com

After high school, I attended and graduated from Oakland University with a B.S. in Marketing. At the same time, I worked for Pontiac Division in a skilled trades apprentice program and graduated as a Journeyman-Machine Repair. After a few years of that fun, I joined the Vehicle Sales, Service & Marketing group of General Motors and went on the "see America tour". I've been transfered from the Detroit Regional Office to Minneapolis, then on to Birmingham, and now enjoying a stay in Chicago. I have held both sales and service positions responsible for marketing/advertising, product compliance and dealer development activities. In June of 1999, I celebrated my 20th anniversary of service with GM. In July of 1998, I completed my Masters of Science Degree in Management and Business from National Louis University in Wheaton, IL. On a more personal note, I've been married for 16 years to my terrific wife, Karen, and have a 9 year old son, Erik.

Well, let's see . . . I married Dan Wagner in 1983, and we have a 9-year-old son and a 5-year-old daughter. We live in Davison. I held a few meaningless jobs, then ran a resume-writing business from home for seven years. Sold that in '94 and haven't worked since (not for pay, anyway). Now I'm a homeschool mom, with no plans to EVER put my kids in school. It's much more fun this way. Besides, both my kids have autism, and special ed didn't sound particularly appealing. My son has gone from one end of the autistic spectrum to the other. He's about as "normal" as you can get these days, and we caught my daughter's much quicker, so she's fine too. Of course, I've been doing the 24/7 routine for the past nine years, but it's definitely paid off. Now I'm just beginning a new venture--tutoring kids with ADD/ADHD, autism, you name it. I'm also going to work with other autistic kids to see if I can somehow help them "recover" too. Always seeking a challenge, I guess. Now that my own kids are under control, guess it's time to move on to someone else's!! My hubby works for GM and is going to retire in two years, so I guess I better hurry up and get this new business going. Maybe he can be Mr. Mom, since he'll still be young, and I can start a new career. Nah. I just want to help other kids, and make a little cash in the meantime. I'm completely happy being a homeschool mom. Now, if I could just find the energy to lose about 25 pounds . . . Oh, well. Priorities. First autism, then weight loss!!!

I live in Charleston, South Carolina and love it here. I rarely get home to visit Lapeer, but my family is still there. I graduated with a B.S. degree from Northern Michigan University and it's finally paying off after all this time. I am the Manager of Community Relations for a large hospital system in the area. I have experienced marriage...a couple of times....just haven't had a lot of luck in that department. However, I do have three wonderful children. My oldest is graduating this year and will be going into pre-med at the University of Michigan. Their ages are 18, 15, and 4 (he keeps me young!). I have really lost touch with most all of my classmates since graduation and would like to catch up on things with some of you.

I live in Lapeer and have been married to Allen Weingartz (Imlay City graduate) for 20 years. We have an 18-year-old daughter, Tasha who graduated from West in 1999. She was captain of the Varsity Pom Pon Team and led that team to national competition. She is now a student at St. Clair College in Port Huron and also works for a local plumber. Our son, Kyle, is 14 and in 8th grade at West. He plays football, baseball & runs track but is most serious about football, being captain this year. I was a journalist for several years writing for the County Press and the Flint Journal. I owned Cindi's Family Hairstyling for 15 years until a car accident left me unable to continue. For 4 years I was team director for Lapeer Steelers Football and from '97 until '99 I was Head Coach for the West Varsity Pom Pon Team. My husband works for GM and is also a licensed contractor. Until my accident I worked with him pouring concrete, roofing, building decks and various other construction jobs. For the past 2 years he has been assistant coach of Zemmer/West's 8th grade football team. I was unable to attend our class reunion due to short notice and I hope to hear from a number of you so I can get caught up on what I missed.

Hello, Well, I am back in Lapeer now after having spent time in Hawaii, Colorado and Missouri.I was married for 12 years and should have gotten divorced 13 years earlier then I did. The one good thing from that botched adventure was a son who is now 16 and lives in Missouri with his mother. I remarried to the most wonderful woman ( where the hell was she all those years ago ) 5 years ago. She brought 3 wonderful children ( well, as wonderful as children can be ) into this marriage with her, 2 sons 18 and 16 and finally the daughter I've always wanted ( or so i thought ) who is 14 yet thinks and acts 19 or 20. I was in the marines right out of school and have gone on to become of all things in Michigan a shop rat ( go figure ). Hope to change that soon when I get my CDL here in a couple of weeks. Enough rambling for now. Anyone interested in catching up please feel free to contact me. Hope to hear from you all soon, Kevin

We would of been married 25 years in July, but by that time it will be over. And a new life is beginning. I will be moving to MO sometime in Aug. And to make up for all the lost time of not working. Right now im working for Wal-Mart in the Pharmacy Dept. Which I love doing. Which I hope to go back to school and get a degree into the medical field. But who knows what lies for our future.

Together we have two children, Erin b.84 and Shane b.87. We currently live in Caro. Kirt works at Merollis Cadillac-GMC, Lapeer. (Tell him I sent ya!)

After graduation I attended U of M Flint for two years and then transferred to Northern Michigan University. I graduated from there in May,1982 with a B.S degree in accounting. This led to a short term job as the assistant controller at a hotel on Mackinac Island. I returned to Flint and managed to pass the CPA exam, while working for a CPA firm in Flint. I married Craig Johnson in October, 1986, whom I had met on Mackinac Island, 3 years earlier. Since Craig was from the Chicagoland area, we decided it was best to live there. We have lived in a suburb of Chicago ever since and are now currently in Palatine. I was lucky and had found a firm in the Chicago area and began working there a month before getting married. I have now been there 14 years and am a partner in the firm of Detterbeck & Associates. I now have two beautiful daughters who, as of this writing in 2000, are 11 and 9. I am actively involved in a women's group in the area and serve as the treasurer for a local symphony organization and a local chapter of the American Cancer Society. We do return to Lapeer a few times during the year as my parents and brother, John, and his family still live in the area.

My name is Jan Otten. I was an foreign exchange student at LWHS during 1977-1978.This was a super experience for me. I had great fun this year. I ran cross country for LWHS and became most valuable runner in track. After this high school year, I had to go back to my country, the Netherlands. I worked for a year and had to serve the dutch army for 14 months which was required at that time. I married my beautiful wife Klasien in 1984 and we have 3 children. Fockelien 13 - Robert 12 - Roselique 8. I own my own optical business. We produce and sell sunclips and optical frames. We are looking for customers in the USA/Canada. I have been back to the States 7 times since graduation. I already purchased my flight tickets to attend the 25th reunion. I will arrive on the 15th of August and leave on the 21st. I do need a place to stay for a few nights. Does somebody have a suggestion?I am very much looking forward meeting old friends and maybe new ones as well. I wish the organisation all the best, because it is a lot of work. Unfortunately it is hard for me to help because of the long distance.If there is any chance I would like to say a word of thank you during the reunion. You all have given me a wonderful year and would like to express this. I received the official invitation earlier this week and will return it soon. Please keep me posted the coming up months.If anyone is interested in communication with me. please do not hesitate.My e-mail address is: euroframe@planet.nlSee you all in August!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Everyone! Kinda crazy, I was just cruising around online and decided to see if all of the teachers at West when I was there are still there... most of them are. Hmmm... I am currently attending the University of Michigan- Flint, and pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. Someday I hope to be a child psychologist. Scary thought, huh? :) In case you are all wondering that REALLY know me.. Yes, me and Miss Sarah Rhodes are still best friends. I talk to her about 20 times a day. No, I never married that TJ Gleason kid... we are still friends though... I am currently back living with my parents temporarily, until I get offered a permanent job here at GM Milford Proving Grounds. I am in a new relationship with a boy that actually graduated from Lapeer East in 2002, and things seem to be going well. I almost got married once now. And I see that most of my friends from high school either are married, having/has kids, or both. Congrats to you all! Anyone that is interested, stop by on my myspace page (home page) that is listed above, and drop me a line! Til then, take care!!

I sure was surprised to find this site while playing on the net. Looks like it's not very current but thought I'd add my 2 cents anyway. I'm married now to Scott Ferguson, some of you might remember his brother Matt Ferguson from the class of '89. (They're nothing alike) and we have two wonderful kids, my daughter,kaitlin Marie (12 going on 20), and my adorable hellion, Logan James, who will be three in July. After letting him beg me for a couple of years I let my hubby talk me into moving to Texas, so in Nov. of 05 we packed up the kiddies and drove cross country. We bought a nice (but old) house and are in the process of fixing it up. We definitly do not have the same tastes when it comes to decorating but I am confident that he will see everything my way and we will have a lovely home. I found a job in Waco working for an insanely busy doctors office and except for being teased unmercifully about my accent (what accent?) I couldn't ask for a better place to work. It was great hearing how well y'all are doing and I hope I hear from some of you. I'll check in the near future to see if there's anything new. Bye for now.

Here we are in the year 2005...how time flys! I married Bob Schliter (1990 LW Grad) 10 years ago and together we have a very funny, happy, energetic and very bright son, Nathan Robert, who is 6 years old. Bob runs his own construction company, framing houses, for which he has been very successful over the last 11 years. We still reside in Lapeer. Careerwise for me, I am an Assistant Vice President for Citizens First Bank. I began my career with CF 10 years ago beginning as a Teller while attending community college. As time went on, I worked my way up the ranks through a few positions with the company. Today I manage/operate the Lapeer Branch Office. My position entails managing the branch as well as writing mortgages, consumer lending, and small business lending. Currently, I am awaiting the completion of the very first Regional Branch of CF, located here in Lapeer, of which I have been selected to manage/operate. My job is both very challenging and rewarding! (I am a very busy girl these days!)

Hi Everybody! We live in Plymouth, a western suburb of Detroit. After high school I got my B.A. in Political Science from Cedarville University (I wanted to be president. It could happen!), then my Master's Degree from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and my doctorate from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago. Now I'm senior pastor at Lake Pointe Bible Church in Plymouth. My wife Crystal is a Physician Assistant, and we have three beautiful kids-- Quintanya, 9 years, Tyrin, 6 years, and Charissa, 5 years. My brother Ed (a '78 West grad) lives off Lake Nepessing Road, so we still get to Lapeer occasionally, and I always enjoy coming "home." I still run, and enjoy staying in touch with my old cross country buddies Herb Katterman, Bryon Hawes, and Steve Winn.

Hi Everyboby- I've been living in Palm Springs,CA for the last 16 years and loving it. I am divorced and have a 14 year old daughter. My family still lives in the Hadley area so I occasionally go back to MI to visit (summers only) I tried to get info about the reunion early in the summer so that I could attend, but unfortunately I didn't find out about this website until it was over. I am an assistant manager at a Vons supermarket. My current interests include mountain biking, hiking, off-roading, traveling and anything else that involves the outdoors. Palm Springs is one of the greatest vacation destinations. So if you haven't been here I encourage you to do so. I would welcome any and all correspondence. Hoping you are enjoying your life as much as I do mine!!!

I ran high volume 7-11 stores for 8 years untill I was worn out and could not take it any more. My wife then and I bought a 1968 Ford fire truck(double size ambulance) and traveled the country for two years, ending up in Portland Oregon where our money finally ran out.

Currently I'm still living in Metamora with Tim and the 3 of our kids that are still at home. Our oldest is half way through MSU already, and we have twins who will be starting their senior year at East next fall. I am currently on hiatus from my job at a mortgage company, the weather turned nice and golf seemed more important (I never was highly career oriented)!! Anyway, I was just thinking about everyone and thought I'd touch base. I'd love to hear from everyone.

I was at West as a foreign exchange student. I'm also a graduate of Mantsala High School (Finland) in '82. In the '80s I studied at Helsinki U of Technology (HUT) (Civil Eng.) and U of Helsinki (Applied Geography)(M.Sc). Working as a researcher at the Center for Urban and Regional Studies at HUT. Currently engaged in research on integrated land use and transportation planning - also doing my doctoral dissertation on the subject. Married (since 1995) to Pia (Backlund), also a researcher. Three dogs and a cat. Just sold an old house in an old suburb of Helsinki and moved downtown, so free time is no more filled with repairs, upgrading, fixing things, et.c. - now we just sit in cafés and enjoy city life! Anyone coming to Helsinki? Drop me a line, I'd be happy to guide you around.

After 20 years in the restaurant/country club/hotel business (the last 15 in magagement and parternership) I decided I'd had enough of the rat race! I'm currently in school AGAIN to get my Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer degree. Upon completion I'll be the one who designs your company websites and manages your networks. Managing country club's made me alot of contacts with alot of business owners and I'm currently working on some business from them to help pay for school and may even start doing design work full time for myself rather than work for someone else. I'm looking forward to the upcoming 20th reunion to catch up with all my old friends.

I am currently living in Glen Ellyn, IL, a western suburb of Chicago. When I'm not at work, which is now thanks to a corporate bankruptcy filing and subsequent downsizing, Jennifer, my wife of 13 years (and counting...) and I are busy raising two little girls, ages 9 and 5. I would love to hear from old classmates. The 20th anniversary of our graduation from Lapeer West's hallowed halls was a real gas. We all look darn good!! Hope to hear from you all real soon!!

I'm married to Becky McGough - 9 years now - and we have one adopted 3 year old boy named Liam. He's our pride and joy even if he is spoiled to death by his Mother. I graduated in '86 from MSU with a BS degree that I haven't used. In '89 my business partner and I formed a contracting company building custom homes, it pays the bills some how. A few years ago, Becky and I bought a dilapdated old farm house on some property that we have restored. Now we have horses, cattle, pigs, chickens, turkeys, cats, dogs and a mule that my son named "green lantern". Stay in touch.

Hi everyone, I haven't seen most of you since graduation day! After a mis-spent couple of years after high school and dropping out of one or two colleges I finally settled down in Orange Park, Florida, which is in the northeast part of the state, sw of Jacksonville, home of the Jaguars. I have been married for 15 years to Mike, who is in the landscape, maintenance, irrigation and pest control business. We have two children, 11-year-old Kate and 4-year-old Jack, two of the best looking and smartest kids ever produced, of course. I am a graphic designer by trade, and after 10 years in the newspaper/printing industry, last year dropped out of the rat race to free-lance from home, which so far has not made me a rich woman but has been rewarding in other ways. I would love to hear from any of you, as I have not been able to return for any reunions (I am planning to attend the 20 year hopefully.) In a nutshell, much to my great surprise and undoubtedly due to divine intervention I have turned out to be a relatively productive member of society! Best wishes to all of you.

Hello ALL! I left you all early to go to Bonanza to be a cook! The best thing that could have happened to me. One fine day as I was taking out the garbage, I realized that I wanted to have the opportunity to do something better with my life. With Determination in hand, I attended Mott Community college for 2 years and finished my B.F.A. at The Center for Creative Studies in Detroit in 1988. I worked for an ad agency for 6 years, finding that I liked to draw and paint more than create logos and brochures. So I moved on. I wound up drawing techincal illustrations for Jeep and Dodge. So after 3 years working as a contractor I was hired in direct at DaimlerChrysler. Since then its been nothing but "Great" and a lot of fun. OH--Let's not forget the wife, Dawn!. My best friend, love of my life and Soul mate, we met in '85, got married in Vegas in '97. We Continue to travel to the Caribbien, Mexico, and Hawaii every vacation we get. No kids yet. Maybe the Future! So Hang Loose. I would love to hear from everyone.

We are happy to be back in the East which feels most like "home". I am currently busy preparing for the holidays, and keeping up with my two children, Lauren (age 7) and Brandon (age 3), and developing an interior decorating business. This is a busy time of year as a portion of my business revolves around decorating for the holiday season. As crazy as it gets around here, I still have found time to become computer literate before the turn of the century. I would love to hear from old friends and classmates. (Better run this through "spellcheck" in case Mrs. King is looking in...My typing skills are not much better than they were in the tenth grade)!

This time 25 years ago we were nearly a month into our senior year of high school. Now, my only child, Nick, has begun his senior year so we're consumed with the SAT, ACT, college searches, etc. For the past 20 years I've been married to Craig Miller (class of 1980). Craig has 21 years in the Army, and is stationed in Washington, D.C. with the White House Communications Agency. Not wanting to live in the District, we bought a home in Stafford, VA which is about 35 miles south; far enough away from the every-day craziness, but close enough to enjoy the culture and history. Throughout the past 20 years, we were fortunate to have been stationed in some great places: Monterey, CA; Augusta, GA; Panama, Colorado Springs, CO; and Virginia (twice). Now I keep busy as a a real estate agent with Keller Williams. I also volunteer at my son's high school, and am the treasurer for the athletic boosters. Please drop me an email if you're in the Nation's Capital, and perhaps we can meet for drinks. Hope to see you all next fall at our reunion.

Hi Everyone! Well right after high school I started working at Lapeer County Bank. Ray and I got married in 1984 (19 years!) I worked at the bank for 8 years and then retired to be a household engineer raising my 2 boys Logan (13) and Luke (10). In 1999 I started working at a pharmacy/health food store (weird huh?)where I am a Natural Medicine Consultant. I am studying health and nutrition, alternative medicine, CranioSacral therapy and Reiki. I really love my job. Ray is contracted with Detroit Edison where he is a General Foreman for M&J Electric. He has been doing that for 20 years. We love to snowmobile and do most of our riding in the U.P. For the past 4 years we have been building houses to sell, and last year we finally built one for ourselves in North Branch. Now we spend alot of our time putting the final touches on our house. Looking forward to the reunion!

Hi. Shortly after high school Paul and I got married and moved to Oregon. We spent six wonderful years in Corvallis. We learned to ski and played a lot of softball. When Paul finished school we moved to Lansing where he took a post-doctoral position at MSU. We played some ball and took up running as a recreation. We spent many weekends traveling around the state camping and participating in races (not competitively). In 1995 Paul took a position with Dow Corning and we moved to Midland where we have been ever since. I quit work at the end of 2000 to stay at home with our daughter, Rebecca, who was born 2/13/01. Taking care of her is by far the best job I've had. In addition to Rebecca we have three large dogs. We spend the majority of our free time camping at Bass Lake near Kalkaska. I have not been to any of our reunions and I am looking really looking forward to seeing everyone in 2003.

Hello everyone! After graduation I attended Uof M Flint for one year. I was then accepted at Kettering College of Medical Arts in Kettering Ohio, where I successfully obtained a A.D. in nursing. After graduation, and strting to work, I meet a wonderful man, Leon Demers, whom I married, and have been married to for 13 happy years. We have three beautiful children, Victoria 11, Carl 7, and Jacob 6. I am currently working as a nurse in a MRI clinic, mostly caring for children, whom unfortunatley have cancer, or are being diagnosed with cancer. It makes me that much more grateful to come home to my healthy family, and pray I never have to deal with any serious disease in my children. We reside in a small town in Ohio, where we have lived for the last 5 years, but probably will not be our last! Please excuse any typos... I never learned how to type, but computers are forcing me to do just that!

Hi everyone! Since I graduated from high school in '83 I have been working non-stop. I attended Baker College for 1-1/2 years to become a paralegal but discontinued because of work. I worked for Fayette Tubular Products from 1984-1991. After being laid off, because they moved the company to another state, I started working for a printing company here in Lapeer where I am the office manager. I married my high school sweetheart (Steve) on September 29, 2001 (Yes, it did take along time!!). We have no children - just plenty of nieces and nephews. We still live in Lapeer and will probably stay here forever unless the trafffic gets any worse. Have only been to the five year reunion since graduation but will hopefully attend the 20 year. Time flies when you're having fun.

Seems like everyone moved away from Lapeer, then moved back, and maybe moved away again. Presently, I live in Denver, CO and can't think of any place I'd rather be. My morning commute heads west toward the mountains. It may be a 45 minute drive, but the view makes it all worth it. Let's see, I'm married (again), have three children. The girls are married and living in MI and MD. My son is still at home. Any suggestions on how to dump him out of the nest?

Hello! As with everyone else, things have been pretty busy since graduation. After getting my bachelors from Michigan Tech, I began working for a small company in Marlette, MI as a Project Engineer. I am still working in the same location, but the plant is now a part of Lear Corporation, and I am the Information Systems Mgr. In the meantime, I received my MBA from Oakland U. My wife, Andrea, and I have been married for almost 8 years and have a daughter (Julia) who is nearly 2 (and I thought I was busy before I had a child! Still find time for the occasional round of golf however). We live in North Branch so its nice being able to occasionally run into some of our other classmates that also live in the area. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the 20 year reunion.

I'm am currently working in a private psychiatric hospital as a Human Resources/Purchasing Assistant. I have been working here since 1994. I started off in the kitchen with the first open job available. I ended up working up to a Unit Secretary within 3 months. Within three years I ended up the Unit Secretary Coordinator in charge of 8 Unit Secretaries. When I was helping the Human Resources Director, then ended up making a position for me, to be her HR Assistant, then for job security I took over the Purchasing for the whole hospital. It is a very challenging job, but I enjoy it. I have done a varies job since high school, like working in the banking industry, dry cleaning business, bartendar/waitess, shop work, until I findally found what I enjoy must working with people.I just recently got married, April 6, 2003. I had a different wedding. I had my reception first (Saturday) and got married at 12:00 o'clock midnight. My husband is from Ubly, Michigan. He is 36 years old and had never been married and no child. We both never thought we could find someone with the same interest. We plan on having kids. We are living in Lapeer. Well I still live in the same house I have since I was 7 years. I just couldn't ever leave Lake Nepessing. I am a big NASCAR fan, I go to Charlotte NC yearly and also the Bristol, TN to the night race. I still bowl and golf. I'm pretty good at both. Just ask Tim Lorrison. He plays golf with me often, and he makes me play from the men's tee off, he comment is "you hit just a far as we do, you don't need a handicap."

I now live in Fenton, MI with my wonderful husband Ken. We've been married for almost ten years. I have a shetland sheepdog named Orbie, two stepchildren Travis (age 27) and Anna (age 25), along with a beautifuldaughter, Amelia Rose Gallup Glenn. Amelia Rose was born 10-10-99, and is growing faster than we can believe! I did return to my position as Nurse Midwife at Hurley Medical Center in January, 2000. I had worked with women and babies since graduating nursing school in 1987 and as a nurse midwife since 1992. In August 2000, the midwifery service was closed, and since then I have been a domestic engineer, resident gardener, and primary caregiver (a.k.a. stay-at-home mom). It has been a blessing for me and my family, and I enjoy reliving the magic of childhood through my daughter's eyes. Also, one day shy of my 38th birthday, our newest family member was born to my stepson. Baby Nora is beautiful and healthy, and I might even let her call me grandma.

After high school I studied at Northern Michigan University and the Michigan Center For Japanese Studies in Hikone, Japan. I then worked for a couple of years aboard a fishing trawler in the Bering Sea--where I met my wife Angela--before accepting a position with the Japanese Ministry of Educaton (Monbusho). Angela and I lived and worked in rural northern Japan for a number of years before returning to live in the Ann Arbor area where we both now teach in area high schools (me: history; she: Spanish.) We travel when we can, spending time in Southeast Asia, China, Russia, the Middle East, Central America, and little bit of Europe.

I hardly recognized anyone at the 20 year reunion and had to check the sign at the door a couple of times to make sure I was at the right party. I think we should use the picture buttons that were used at the 5 year reunion. I still have John Clymers button from that year!! I also heard that someone is putting together a big East-West reunion and I think that is a great idea! Email me if you want to!

We live in the U.P. in a city called Calumet in the heart of "The Copper Country" It is beautiful here. Just lots of snow. As Donald said we just wish it would quit snowing. We have long snowy winters here (over 200 inches so far) It saddens me to inform the class of 83 that my brother Donald, or as most know him as Norm was killed in a car accident on January 4, 2002, Bruces crossing Michigan.

Hello Everyone!!It's been a long time. It was nice to read about everyone. I'm sorry I missed you all at the class reunion. Out of High School I served in the Army for 4 years. I met my husband of 17 years during my time in service overseas. He's French-American. We lived in Hawaii for six years and now live near Charlotte, NC for the past 10 years. Since moving to Charlotte I finished my nursing degree, became a certified ocology nurse, and in the last year decided to slow down and became a School Nurse for one of the elementary schools close to our home. I like children and have two(3) children Pierre(12), Joelle(9), Kele(German Shepherd 17wks).We lead a very busy life... our children are involved in soccer, boy scouts, and gymnastics. So like many of you I'm a super mom. I miss you all. I sympathize with any of your losses over the years, and pray you find peace one day. Maybe I'll make it to the next reunion. Keep in touch.

Greetings everybody. Its great to hear how the class of 84 is doing. Heres my update: I graduated from Western Michigan in 1989 with a degree in Computer Science. I lived in Ann Arbor doing database work until 1993 and then moved to Grand Haven (AKA Paradise). I now work for Herman Miller, Inc. as a software engineer. I was married for 10 years, but things didnt work out I really wasnt into planting bushes and she really wasnt into being alive.I have two great boys, ages 4 and 7 and Im awaiting the DNA test on the third (thats a joke). I now spend my summers on my boat Schroedingers Cat, salmon fishing, drinking beer and enjoying myself. In the Winter I recover, build furniture and play roller hockey. Ive accomplished 3 of the things I wanted to do before I died I ran a Marathon (Cleveland 2000, Chicago 2002), got a hole in one (17 at Bramblewood in Flint) and played 18 holes at Pebble Beach (Shot 92 from the back tees on a blustery day). If anyones in West Michigan and wants to party, drop me a line, it would be great to hear from you.

Hello all. I thought it was time to update this. So, after spending 4 years in the Navy from 1986-1990, I persued my B.S. in Electrical Engineering, graduating from Michigan Technological University in 1999. From there I did some work with missile for a few years in Tucson, Arizona, and then did some work with weather satellites in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Leaving there in March 2002, I came back to Michigan to work on the upgrades and developement of the Abrams M1A1 and M1A2 tanks. I am also engaged to be married for the first time next year. Also in the middle of earning my MBA in accounting. Life has been very busy but now at the age of 37, I found it was time to settle down and relax. Life is great. I hope to hear from anyone that remembers me. Take care, all.

The short story: Graduated from Hurley Med. Cntr. School of Nursing in 1987 (RN) Worked at U of M Med. Cntr., University of Virginia Med. Cntr., a few private hospitals, and most recently a long-term care facility. Married Keith, a GMI grad. in 1991, had five children, Alyssa-12, Christi-10, Joseph-9, Jeremy-6, and Patrick-4. We spent years "growing the family" in Richmond, Virginia, and Maple Grove, Minnesota (suburb of Minneapolis) and finally returned to Michigan (greater Grand Rapids) this June ('05). I am taking the summer off before returning to the workforce. The five kids keep me busy, and we watch a lot of kids' soccer, baseball, volleyball, hockey, etc. I have to be laid back to do this! I still manage to find time to keep in shape. I'd love to hear from anyone who wants to say hi!

Hi. After high school I went to Oakland University and graduated with a degree in Finance. I worked at General Motors right after college. I married Steve in 1990 and we have 2 wonderful daughters Alexa, 8 and Brenna, 4. We moved to Japan in 1998 due to Steve's job with GM and moved back in 2000. Quite a culture shock but it was a great experience. I have not gone back to work but am keeping busy by volunteering at my daughters' schools, decorating our new house, exercising and spending time with family and friends. And these past few months have been especially crazy because in February my daughter Alexa was downhill skiing, crashed into a tree, broke her femur, had to have surgery and then got pneumonia in the hospital. She was in a wheelchair for quite a few weeks. But she had the pins removed yesterday and will be as good as new in a few weeks. We currently live in Macomb Township, Michigan. I still keep in touch with Lori Gupta (Angle) and Tonya Reber (Boven) and my brother, Bob, of course. I would love to hear from you!!

WOW!!! This is a great way to stay up on where everyone is at. As for myself after graduation I went on to Western Michigan University and received my Bachelor's degree in Communications. (I always loved to talk alot) While I was there I met the man of my dreams Dave. We were married in '91 and went on to have three children.( Trae-8yrs-boy)(Thane-6 yrs-boy)(Tierra- 4yrs-girl). We lived in Allen Park, which is a suburb of Detroit, then in '95 we moved to Marshall, MI where we are still living. We moved here and started a bussiness. It is a franchise called "Big Apple Bagels. We sold it in Dec.'99. I am so glad to hear everyone is doing so well, it doesn't surprise me though we always had the best group of people in our class!!! I still stay in touch with a few people from our class, but hopefully more now with this at our fingertips. As for the class reunion; we have had both a 5yr and a 10 yr. which were both sucessful, but always hopeing for a better turnout at the next one. Now that we have this way of contacting people it will make it much better. Please tell everyone that you talk to to visit this site, so we can continue to grow. Hope to hear from EVERYONE. Even if it is just a HELLO. Take Care and please keep this site updated. Thanks!!!!

After graduation I joined the United States Marine Corps. After touring the world and fighting wars I finished my tour of duty by spending a year in Okinawa,Japan. Upon my return to the U.S. I found my way back to Lapeer and began working for a small roofing company in Rochester Hills. In 1995 I married my wonderful wife Rene'(who also works for the roofing company), and had two beautiful children; Austin 4 years, and Haley Rose 1-1/2 years old. I've traveled all over the United States with this roofing company, which was recently bought out by a Florida based company, and now we are part of the largest roofing company in North America. Along the way I've taken our company's softball team to two championships. I also enjoy traveling Michigan for the Gus Macker basketball tournaments. I can't wait to see everyone at the next class reunion. P.S. Kevin is still around and doing well.

Hello! Haven't kept in touch with anyone in some time! I'm living in Hazleton, PA and working for Con-Way Central Express (CCX) as a Terminal Manager in Wilkes-Barre, PA (Northeastern, PA). After graduation from the Univeristy of Michigan in 1990, I joined CCX at their corporate office as an Inside Sales Rep. Two years later, I got married to Kathy Goodfellow (Vassar, MI) and moved with the company to Allentown, PA (an hour north of Philadelphia)as an Account Executive. Kathy & I have three children (Steven (12/95), Bridget (4/97) & Jonah (11/01). In 1996, I became Terminal Manager at a small facility in Pottsville, PA. And in January 2000, I moved to a much larger terminal in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area. Who knows where I'll go from here! We still get back to Michigan once or twice a year to see our families, but mainly we enjoy vacationing to New England or the Southeastern states. If anyone knows how to get ahold of Tom Knotts, please E-Mail me!

I am a Senior Electrical Engineer for the U.S. Army. Happily married since June '92 to Wendy ['85, Lapeer East]. We have three kids; their pics are on my web page link below. I have been working for the Army since '91 where I have spent my first 8 years developing Virtual Reality devices and applications so our soldiers can "see" and "test" future military products before we have even built anything. Squeezed in a 6-month sabbatical at the Pentagon and after a 10-year break from college I decided to go back to pursue my Master's in Electrical Engineering; got it and now know that I don't want a doctorate. Then I played with some of the worlds largest remote controlled toys and have invented numerous items that are now in the U.S. Army inventory. One example, you can Google "BPMTU" and if it looks military that is probably it. It is on lots of different vehicles (yes, it is patented, but I am not going to get rich with it; I patented it royalty-free for any U.S. manufacturer who puts it on U.S. military vehicles). Our main residence is in Sterling Hts., MI when I am not out of town testing equipment and blowing stuff up.

Hello, Hello...here we are a few years removed from our glorious graduation. I have finally retired from the US Army after 22.8 years of service and am glad that it is over. I am currently living in Clarksville, TN but will be moving once I settle on the tract of land I want (this will be in TN still). Retirement is great and I can do whatever I want and do not have to worry about someone else's little quirks. I hope that all of you are doing great and enjoying life since graduation, take care and have a great New Year. Todd

Here I go...5000 words or less, right? I went to Western for a year and a half before I realized I really didn't want to become a DR (studied Bio-Med), just wanted the income. I went back to Lapeer where I married Valerie Wagner. Although the marriage didn't work out (can you say maturity check) I was rewarded with 2 sons, Patrick who is now nearing his 13th birthday (9/20/87), and Calvin who is 11 (5/10/89). Both kids are playing hockey, surprise. Calvin playing in the Michigan National Hockey League (AAA) which is the highest level of play in US/Canada. The team travels to cities like Pittsburgh, Chicago, Cleveland, among others including Ontario. NHLers from MI have come through this league. Patrick is also playing at the travel level, a little more limited mostly Michigan based, and excelling. He has a special talent, he can score. Led his team to the state semi's last year losing to the eventual champs. Both kids are blessed with talent, yet are very humble, makes me proud. The only drawback is that they are about to pass me in ability, they are way better than I ever was, I am still bigger though! (perhaps the 127 games they played last year could be a drawback, depending on your take) I remarried in 1997. My wife, Amy, is a gradeschool teacher. We will be working on having children this summer (2000). Business life could not be better, after spending 9+ years trapped in the car sales business, I purchased a Management Recruiters franchise where we recruit for automotive engineering talent,as well as IT. I also fell in with a guy who franchises on the internet, which has been my primary focus over the past 12-15 months. The results are astounding. I have finally become an A student, in the school called life. The internet has opened up the world (this site is evidence), the future is very bright. I also was honored to be published in Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul III, for a story pertaining to that time at Western. I enjoy reading the info you all have posted and look forward to hearing from you soon, directly or via e-mail.

New update from a class of 84, since the last time I wrote, my children have gotten older. Emily is 17 and Andrew is 12, which is really great. Still living in Elon, NC and still married to Connie (Colley). Reading Tim Stayman's post I realized I left out some "to do before I died" listings so here goes: I was at Game 4 in Washington DC in 1998 to see the Wings win the CUP. I was at game 3 in Raleigh, NC to see the Wings win and eventually secure the cup in 2002. Game 7 in 2006 to see the Hurricanes win the cup over Edmonton. Also drove the autobahn at ungodly speeds. Seen the last game at the Forum in Montreal, and owned a Porsche 928 for several awesome years. Currently playing roller hockey with a few other Lapeer West Alums, Bill Ostrander (brother-moved to NC in 2007) and Tim Reeser who has been down here for at least 10 years. You all give me a holler when you come down to the Carolinas!

Hi Everyone. I have been wondering what happenend to everyone. I have been living in Alberta Canada for the past 13 years. I have been married for 10 years and have two beautiful girls Shelby (8) and Karly (4). I work for the Edmonton Sun newspaper as a District Manager of Circulation which is a job that I can do out of my home. That part I love so I can be here for the kids. I also am working my way through photography with a goal of eventually owning my own small business some day but for now it is just a fun hobby. Still keeping very active in sports. Playing volleyball, tennis and mixed slow-pitch. The main thing that keeps me sane is running. Something I took up about three years ago and ended up running two marathons the same year. Of course the races are in the summer which means training is in the winter. My first long run of 10 miles was in January with a temp of -35. I made it through the full 26 miles and have been running ever since. We spend the rest of our winter skiing in Banff and Jasper. In spite of what everyone must think about Canada and the cold weather, it is a beautiful country. Would love to hear from any of you. Sounds like everyone is doing well and is happy. Best to Everyone in 2000!!!

I am from Brazil and despite having travelled so much (I have been to 29 countries, living in 4 different ones)I can garantee you that no experience has been so special as having lived in the US (specially in Lapeer). I live in So Paulo, Brazil and I have a travel agency specialized in ecoturism. While studying at the Lapeer West, I joined the Drama Club and I also wrestled for the school (congratulations for the recent results !) . I was deeply moved by the photo I saw of the school in the first page... how many good momories.... I look forwark to hearing from you. All the best Fernando Reiff

Hi there. Nice to finally find something like this!! Well, after I graduated, I started at UM, but couldn't get into it then. I got married, had 2 great kids, and life went on. To make a long story short, I got bored with life, started school again, am now single, and things have never been better. I work at McLaren as an RN. I graduated in 1998, and I love every minute of it. I now live in Davison with my 2 kids, real close to home. I can't really complain at all about how life turned out. Of course, these days jsut watching the kids learn and grow is a real hoot. Life is good! Never ever thought I'd be able to say that. Later Tater!!!

Hello everyone. It's been a long time since I have kept up with any of you, so this site was pretty interesting. Anyhow, after graduation I went to Ferris for there golf program but decided I would rather play than work the game, so after two years I transferred to Central and received my degree in Accounting (what the heck was I thinking!!!) After college I started work for Marathon Oil in Findlay, OH where I met my wife. I have been lucky to be married to a wonderful woman for 13 years and have two great kids Sara-12 and Ben-10 to keep my days exciting. We were moved by Marathon to Houston, TX where I switched careers into the Natural Gas Trading business (can you say Enron). Well after four companies and moves to Midland, Mi and then back to Houston I am still doing the same type of work, but we are living in Traverse City, MI. Things have gone well and been a little more exciting than I had planned. It's good to be back in the state and I look forward to catching up with you all at our 20th (boy that went fast!) reunion. Take care and send me an e-mail if you get a chance.

While she wasn't looking, I married her and we now have two (starter set) beautiful children, Alexander 5 and Abigail 2.

Great to see a number of you are doing well. My history: 7 years at Oxford IGA right out of Highschool (started as bag boy and ended as Store Assnt Mgr.) Then is was off to OCC to learn a skilled trade. OK change of plans...metalergy...no, geology...no, mathmatics...OK, Mechanical engineering. After my 3 year stint there it was off to Mich Tech on a scholarship!! 3 oustanding years of living in what I call heaven on earth (the location of the school NOT the school), I graduated July of 98. I have been married for 3 years to Beautiful Julie and have two girls, ages 3 and 3 mos. Sarah and Andrea now occupy most of my spare time. I now can only tinker on my Vette late into the weekend nights. I now reside in Livonia and work at Collins & Aikman in Troy as a Program Manager.I keep in touch somewhat with a few people like Mike McDonald, Dave Nordquist, Mike Deitering, Terry Jock (grad after us). If there is/was a 20 year reunion I am interested.

Hi guys. It has been three years since my first entry, so lets try an update (the original info follows this message). I am still married to Lial, 16 years now. We finally made a move out of the city and are now in Goodrich, about 1/2 SE of Flint. I have a 45-minute commute and loving every minute of it..just to get out of the city. We are conveniently located next to Lapeer and Oakland Counties, which is a good thing since I still work for the Oakland County Circuit Court. I have been there 10 years now and still counting down the last 5 years 'til retirement! I finally received my Assoc. Summer '03 and just began my BBA. Should receive that by Spring 2005. I may go for my Master's, but one degree at a time. I still have a little before retirement:) My husband 'retired' from working two years ago and has been a full time student at U of M-Flint, OCC, and Mott. Now that we're going, we'd like to 'crash course" it! And NO, I definately would not recommend this form of study to anyone. Being at home has privileged my husband to life as a housewife. He taxi's the kids, does the laundry and meets me at the door when I get home:) He's a great guy and though I tease him daily that he's not funny (gotta keep that ego down to size), he keeps me laughing,always. I still take life too seriously and he does what he can to take that away. Seriously though, he's more man now than ever! For my kids, Justin is now 16, Derrik 12, and Jessie/Jennie are 6. If nothing else, THAT makes me old! I guess it doesn't hurt that I just turned 39, too. Ugh! Can you believe it!?!?!!? My email addresses haven't changed. You can still reaach me @ srmiller_64@yahoo.com OR millersr@co.oakland.mi.us. PLEASE try one of them..they can't work if you don't try. and I promise to respond to others. Somebody asked about Jenny Harris. I have thought of her myself, but have no clue of her whereabouts. I'd also like to know of any tragedies that the class has faced over the years. I know of a few students that we have sadly lost, but only a few. Well, here's to a successful 20th. If my help is needed, then don't hesitate to ask! I'm offering...(original message follows)...After graduation I spent a couple years as a Nanny in Davison and in Bloomfield Hills. I then moved to Genesee for a short time to be with my boyfriend. We married in the spring of 1989 & had our first son in the fall of that year. Justin is now 11. I was a stay home mom for a couple of years until I had our second son, Derrik-9. Just shy of Derrik's 1st birthday, I went to work in retail for about 7 years. I loved it, but it didn't pay what I needed. I found a couple of clerical type jobs for the experience. I later became employed (1995) with the 6th Circuit Court in Pontiac. I deal with individuals that have been caught dealing in criminal activity (politically titled, but otherwise known as criminals). Anyway, I work in the collections department (collecting court ordered fees). My husband, Lial (long I; short a) is an accomplished machinist in Oxford, and is a talented artist on the side. We have since (1997) had twin girls, Jessica & Jennifer (they turned 3 09/00). I missed the last reunion, but look forward to the next one. Work brought us to the city, but we are making a move back to the country. It is great to read up on those that have found this site, and it was fun to read about each of you. I hope that you will send me a note. millesr@co.oakland.mi.us or srmiller_64@yahoo.com..Until the next time...

Rowan (01.06) is growing into such a big boy and is such a 'little man'. I am thoroughly enamored with my children, can't believe how they fulfull our lives. I quit my job to to be a SAHM in Dec 04 and haven't regretted it once . . .well, maybe when I wanted to spend waaay too much on something frivolous . . . but they're only little once. I can go back to work when they get in school. Hope everyone else is doing well and I agree, there are lots of bios that need updated! Hope to catch everyone at at least one reunion, if I can make it home.

Hey everyone. It's nice to see that the class of 84" is keeping in touch. I have been hanging out in Stuart Florida for the past 18 years. Lucky for me I get to come to Michigan for the summer and work on the farm. (Still hate it) I have a husband of 17 years, a son 16, and a daughter 14. Life is good. Keep in touch!

Hi Everyone! Wow, how time has flown!!! Well, I'd like to think I'm where I'm supposed to be in life, but looking at these bios I think I have some catching up to do... After graduation my family moved to Sterling Heights and I went to work doing almost everything imagineable - bowling alley cocktail waitress, retail, auto parts assembly - anything to avoid the 9 to 5 grind. Eventually, working holidays & weekends cured my fear of life in a cubicle and now I'm the executive assistant at the Advisor & Source Newspapers in Utica and have been there for 13 years. I married for the second time in Sept. '99 and my husband Rob is wonderful! He's definitely my 'better half'- kind, loving, Christian and just nuts enough to put up with me. He's a Marketing & Sales Consultant for Yamaha Corp. Band & Orchestral Division. We are living in New Baltimore, MI & have no little ones yet, but we keep praying... We have a dog and two cats though... spoiled rotten, all of them! I keep busy with oil painting, church vocal choir, church flute choir, boating, & volunteer work. Noel Haas & I just did the AVON Breast Cancer 3-day walk in May '02. It was incredible & exhausting, both physically and emotionally. Sixty miles in three days!!! Then out of 3,515 other walkers, I ran in to Paula Repshinska on the route - it was great to see an old classmate out there! I haven't made it to a reunion yet, but I will someday... In the meantime, drop a line and say "Hi!" You can find me at: jaaisthorpe@yahoo.com

Hey Guys! Glad to hear from at least a few of you! Lets hope we get alot more. Sounds like everyone that has found West's Alumni Page is doing great! I have been doing great! I have a husband of 9 years (Bill), Three beautiful children; Matthew 7, Melanie 6, and Megan 1. I am a fulltime Housewife/Mom, I run my husbands business office and work parttime at night (1or2nights) at a restaurant here in Sarasota, Florida. I have lived here for almost 15 years now (in May). I come up to Michigan atleast every other year. I still keep in contact with Kim Wildfong(Hill), Laura Rae(Ingles), Heather Schluchter(Jakubowski). I hope to hear from some of you, even though we might not have been close friends in school. Does anyone know if we have ever had a reunion? or if we ever will? Because if not, I would take on the job I still love to throw big parties:). Happy New Year "1984" Can you believe it's been almost 16 years since we were in high school. I don't feel older, Do You?

I can't believe I'm in my thirties now! Where does the time go? After graduation, I moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado for about a year to waste some time and figure out what I really wanted to do with my life. HA! Like that worked! I joined the service and spent 9 years active. I moved to Southern California and lived there for about 6 years. I moved again in 1989 to the Chicago area and have been here since. I guess I just have to have all four seasons.I was married for a while and I have a son, Ian and a daughter, Brittney. Nowdays, I work for the government in the Occupational health and safety field. It would be good to hear from any of you. I lost touch with almost everyone since I left Michigan. Take care everyone and be good to each other!

Hi everyone. Since graduation I've received my Bachelor's Degree from U-M Flint in accounting. While in college I worked for several professors. In 1988 I worked for a local Flint insurance agency as a customer service rep. Changing jobs a few times I worked in a security office and a powder coating facility working various office assignments. Now I'm working for GM in Swartz Creek, MI (just west of Flint) as a processing supervisor. Ulitizing the education advantages from GM, I'm currently studying for my Master's Degree and working on AutoCad classes. I'm hoping when I grow up I'll be an industrial engineer for GM. I've been married since 1989 to a wonderful man, Bill. He's helped me through thick and thin since graduation. Together we enjoy riding our Harley Davidson motorcycles across town and across America and Canada. We've riden all across the 48 states plus most of Canada by Harley's in less than 10 years. We are still planning more advantures. My brother, Chris, is doing well. He now lives outside of North Branch and is married with 2 boys. Also I keep in touch with Mike Whitman. He currently lives in Nashville, TN with wife and 4 kids doing well.

During the same time I enlisted in the Air Force I was hired by the Lapeer City Police Department and discharged out of the Air Force's DEP as a Basic Reserve Airman to go into my career in civilian policing.

Hi everyone! After leaving Lapeer West I married Jamie Sweeney (a 1978 Lapeer West graduate) and in 1987 we moved to Palm Beach, Florida. We have been married almost eleven years and have a beautiful six year old daughter named Christina. We now live in Marco Island, Florida, which is a twelve square mile island in the Gulf of Mexico just south of Naples. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in nursing, but I have been a stay at home mom for the past six years. My husband, daughter, I spend July and August on Herd Road in Metamora. I look forward to reading about more of our former classmates, so please encourage anyone that you know to make an entry.

In December of 1988 I married Jim Kent (also from the class of 1985) and then we moved to Tennessee. I got a job teaching high school chemistry and physics while Jim was working as a computer geek at Vanderbilt University Law School. In December 1996 we became the very proud and more than eager parents of a beautiful daughter named Anna Belle Kent. While we were both very happy with our chosen careers and had many wonderful friends in Tennessee, Anna's arrival made us more eager to return to Michigan. I had always joked with my mom that maybe Mr. (Don) Peterson would retire so I could have his job. In April 2000 Mom called and said she had heard he was retiring. I sent for my application right away. I interviewed for the job just before Memorial Day 2000 and I signed my contract right after. Unfortunately, Mr. Peterson was no longer teaching physics. Jim, Anna, and I packed up our house, had a huge moving sale (since we had accumulated eleven and a half years worth of stuff that couldn't possible fit in one moving truck) and headed back to Michigan. I started teaching physical science and Jim found a job as a computer geek at a law school in Ann Arbor. Since we've been back I've had some of our classmates' children as students in my class. I am really happy to be back in Lapeer and especially happy to be teaching at Lapeer West. Working with several of our former teachers as my colleagues has been a pleasant experience. I still have a hard time calling some of them by their first names. Think about it ... Mr. McCarrick will always be Mr. McCarrick, calling him Bob just doesn't feel right. Anna is a student at Central Elementary in Davison. She is currently in first grade and loving it. Earlier this year she got to meet one of our local police officers. You probably remember him. His name is Sergeant Robert Govitz. He gave her something very special that could become a real collector's item one day. She has a genuine Sergeant Robert Govitz policeman trading card. As Anna says, "It is sooooo cool!"

Hello Y'all. After leaving West I went to Michigan Tech. and earned a B.S. in Geological Engineering. I took a job with Shell Oil and have now been in New Orleans, LA for about 10 years. After a few years as a Geological Engineer , I went back to school and earned a M.S. in Environmental Engineering from Tulane University. I'm working as a Senior Environmental Engineer for Shell and live just outside the French Quarter in this fun city. I spend my free time partying in the French Quarter, playing volleyball, entertaining tourists, and dodging hurricanes coming from the Gulf of Mexico. I am still looking for the perfect mate but haven't yet tired of the search. It would be great to hear from some old friends so drop me an E-mail if you get a chance and let me know if any of you plan to make it down New Orleans way. Take care, Mark

Well hello everyone! Got wind of this through Tammy (Jones) Martus. Pretty neat. I was wondering when the 15 year party was... Sounds like a nice dinner and a trip to the beer tent! But first...I graduated Ferris in 1990 and went to work in the graphic arts field. Met my hubby at Ferris. He graduated 1991, the same year we were married. We have 3 terrific boys; Taylor,5, Kevin,3, and Brendan who will be a year on Aug. 16. (And NO, I'm not trying for a girl!) My favorite pastimes are hotwheels, soccer, and trying to fix whatever my boys break. After living in Lansing for a year, we moved to Waterford. My hubby is a program manager for Bosch in Farmington Hills and after Kevin was born I left my graphic designer position at Kelly Services in Troy and entered the REAL workforce: I became a stay-at-home Mom. Toughest and most rewarding job I will ever have:) It is nice to see you doing well and I look forward to seeing all of you at the reunion. If anyone wants to say hello...thelenfam@aol

Graduated Alma College with B.A., International Business in 1990. Then had to join the United States Army's Work for Food program and became a Russian Linguist. Met my husband at Russian school and got married in 1994. I got out, but the hubby stayed in. We have two sons - Alex, now 8 and Zack - 5. Turns out we didn't stay in Ivory Coast but for about a week before a small civil war began, and my children and I were evacuated, never to return. Instead we found ourselves in good ol' Lapeer living with my folks while the hubby did a two-year unaccompanied tour. However, we are in Alexandria, VA as of July 19, 2006, if all goes well. The current plan is to be there for a year, and then off to Kazakhstan with the Defense Attache Service for two years. We'll see how that goes. See you at the 20-year!

After graduation, I joined a traveling circus as a fire-eater. The work was difficult but I met lots of interesting people and it allowed for a socially acceptable outlet for my latent pyromania. Sadly, there really are limits to job satisfaction in the carney community also, a slight butane mix-up resulted in a (now thanks to several plastic surgeries) a barely noticeable scar running lengthwise across my forehead which precluded me from a syndicated TV deal the circus had set up with the nascent FOX network. Seeking more meaning from life, I traveled extensively through Central and South America eventually ending up studying the teachings of the noted Zen Buddhist monk Jonah Goldstein in his monastery/casino on Tierra Del Fuego. I really was able to delve deeply into my soul there (as well as learned to deal a mean game of blackjack.) The siren song of the good old USA drew me home in the early-90's when I began a career in retail pharmaceutical sales which ended with my accepting an invitation from a distant Uncle to spend several years manufacturing license plates in relative peace. Fully rehabilitated, I moved to San Jose, CA and founded Yippee!, an Internet search engine portal and dry cleaners. After a successful IPO had left me financially stable, I turned to philanthropic work helping underprivileged kids discover the joys of outdoor camping in a very small tent. I would love to hear from any of you who remember the old days as my memory of the high school years tends to be a bit clouded. I can be reached at stranger@candy.com.

Wow! Lapeer West with its own website - how did that happen?!? After high school, I went to Oakland University for a year and then regrettably to ITT for a couple of years. Then went to U of M for 5 years - graduated with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in computer science and now work as a computer programmer/network administrator at Metamora Products in Metamora, MI. I married my wife Michelle in 1991 and now have three little boys, Justin, Zachary and Nicholas which are currently 14, 12 and 7 years old, respectively. We had our house built a couple of years ago on a beautiful 10 acre parcel in N. Branch, MI. I think back a lot about all the fun times we had at West and really miss the old gang I used to hang with - you know who you are ;) Went to the 20 year reunion - it was great seeing some of the friends again.

I moved to Greenville, North Carolina in 1988 and have been here ever since. I do a lot of things to keep busy. I am the commissioner of the Little League Baseball program here. My wife Ann (Lapeer East '87)spend virtually the entire year administrating a program which has close to 600 kids ages 5-12 playing baseball. We have 4 ballfields (one of which I spend day after day manicuring and taking care of) in three different city parks. I can't tell you how much joy I get out of watching our kids play baseball. Our leagues play about 40 games a week, six days a week. We also have a 10 team fall league and a Saturday fall instructional program for the little ones. We have a 7 year old little girl who plays also and I think is going to be a good little player some day. I am beginning my 15th year as a high school basketball referee. I was able to work the boy's and girls quarterfinals in 2002 which was a lot of fun. I just finished my 14th year a s a high school football official and got to work the state finals in 2002. Since East Carolina University is in our hometown I have been fortunate enough to get the job as scoreboard operator at all men's and women's basketball games at the university. I also run the 25 second play clock at all home football games. It is a lot of fun. Our basketball arena seats 8,000 and our football stadium seats 42,000. I'm not getting rich but sports are a part of my life every day. I also still follow my beloved Detroit Tigers by satellite dish and TIVO all season long.

After moving around place to place, from New york to California, experiencing life and meeting so many interesting people, I've settled down back here in michigan. Ironically it happens to be less than a block from Pontiac General Hospital, the place where I was born. So you might say after all that I've seen and after all the places I've gone, I ended up back where I started, so technically I haven't got that far in life, but the times I shared with those incredibly special people and the times I spent watching the sea and the skys and the marvels it holds, leaves me feeling grateful that I have those memories. To the same effect I am grateful to the memories I have of the people of the Class of '86, some of which I spent 13 years of school, little baseball and Fourth of July's with. I sometimes dream of those times in the halls of our schools. I hope to be at the next reunion and hope to have a special reunion with those that went K-12 grade together. In the meantime I'll probably continue estimating home improvements, finish art school, play on the computer,(that's all I did in Mr. Walker's computer science class anyways), and go fishing any chance I get. My phone # is 248-335-6420, 31 Evelyn Court, Pontiac, MI 48341. Anybody can call or write, I'd love to hear from you.

Wow it is weird to think back and see how far I have come to this point. I married John Diehl and we have been married since April 1988. John and I have 6 kids as of now. Colleen 12, Caleb 8, Austin 5, Joseph 2 in half, And Twin boys at 9 months old,Samuel and Scott, they do not look alike at all. I breastfeed them both on demand. I love being a stay at home mom and taking care of my kids. I do cloth diapers with my twins and am in the midst of potty training my 2 yr. old. I do find it a challenge and rewarding at times being a Mother and wife, but would not do any thing else. We had been going to Mount Hope Grand Blanc for 10 years, until God told us it was time to move on and help start anther church. We live in New Hudson, Michigan, We are helping to start a Church in Ann Arbor, I run the nursury, The Church is doing great. John does Dry Wall sanding and loves it and makes good money at it. He is a wonderful husband and father. God is good and he helps us all the time! I hope every one is doing well. I would love to here from any one if you want to email me, I love to email back when I can. I love to get on the computer when I get a chance, and I really like to workout and exercise when I can.

Hi Gang! It has been a long time since we have been in touch! As far my current activities... Let's just say that I haven't quite settled down yet. I am still single (and looking), and I am currently residing in Ortonville. I work in Auburn Hills doing silk screen printing for car shows, and such. We provide the awards for the Autorama's and World of Wheels shows throughout the United States. Some of you may have seen me perform at the Lapeer Days Festivals several years ago. I taught and performed clogging and line dancing for about 10 years. I also started being a DJ a couple of years ago, and I loved doing it so much that I bought the business. It is called, THE LYNCH MOB DJ's. If you or anyone else is looking to hire one for weddings, parties or REUNIONS, don't hesitate to contact me. I would love to be of service! I will be attending our next class reunion, so I hope to reacquaint myself with some old friends. In the meantime, please feel free to call or email me to keep in touch.

So, in the meantime, me and my other co-trainers are working on putting together a resource room for the employees. It's been an interesting 15 years since graduation. I'm still pretty active in music and am participating in 2 rock bands in the Chicago area currently. My most recent event will be playing the Northwest Music Festival in Portland, Oregon...alos playing the Folsom Street Fest In San Francisco at the end of the month (Sept 2003).

Well, Mark and I have been happily married for almost 10 years now... boy, where has the time gone? We won't even discuss how long we've actually been together (makes us feel old!) We have two wonderful boys, Riley-5 and Jake-3 which keep us on our toes. Constantly arguing who the kids take after, I say Mark. Anyone that knows Mark and the boys agree with me! After living in England and Germany for nearly 5 years, we are back in Michigan. We moved into our house in Brighton in February and are having fun doing all the "new house" work. We are enjoying having the McKernans and Wisners (Krissy Dunn) as "neighbors". Mark is working for Visteon (formerly of Ford) and I am able to be a stay-at-home Mom which is wonderful. Looking forward to attending the 15-year class reunion.

My husband and I had an idea eight years ago for an internet start-up company. We thought we would have customers put items up for auction on the internet. Little or no overhead--just information. It's a darn good thing we didn't follow through on that. For the past ten years, I have been a teacher. Ironically, the school that I am teaching at consistanly vies with Lapeer West for the wrestling state championship. Married Larry seven years ago. At the urging of my students, we decicded to become foster parents. Fostering lead to adopting our two oldest children--Ronnie, 5; Richard, 3. We had our youngest last May--Riley. I hope this finds everyone well and happy.

I am a mortgage banker/broker for Allied Mortgage Capital Corp. serving Saginaw, Bay and Midland counties. "As one of the nations largest lenders, we offer every kind of home loan you can dream of." <------Free Plug:) I live just outside of Frankenmuth, this allows me to milk my name for several advantages in my business relationships. I married Jennifer Hewitt, of the Davison Hewwitts', in umm... uhh???, a few years ago. Don't tell her I forgot our anniversary date. All I know is that I have served 4 and a half years of a life sentance with NO chance of early parole:) Jenny and I have two children; Megan, who is 3 1/2 going on 12, is a firecracker full of spunk and attitude..... just like her mother and Kyle Anton Rupprecht, of the Lapeer Rupprechts', who just turned two yesterday. My mother once laid a curse upon me hopeing that I would one day have a child that acted just like me. In the past I had just brushed it off as an old woman rambling just to hear herself speak, but now I am truely afraid. You can see it in his eyes. I think he can take me.

8-7-06 OK update time. Summer is coming to an end, and I have to get back to work. I moved out of Lapeer, though I still work there. I recently got married, which is why I missed the reunion. I'm living in Clarkston now with my wife (man, that seems strange to type) and new daughter. So I'm sitting at home during another snowday and thought I'd update this file. I Teach English, Social Studies, and technologies for Lapeer Community High School at Woodside. I also just got done updating the school website. You can find the link off the lapeerschool.org website. I completed my MS in integrating technology into curriculum and distance learning at Nova Southeastern University in 2002. Count me among the many who never thought they'd come back to Lapeer, yet alone end up living here, but for those of you who have been away for a few years, boy has it changed... though it still lacks culture. It's a great place to be when you're in your (late) 30s though.

To those of you who I has the pleasure of seeing at the Reunion, I hope to do it again soon. I am still working for the state, and working on going back to school in the fall, maybe. I'm kind of enjoying watching my kids grow, no matter how much we fight. I never win. My wife Shannon is from Lapeer also she graduated in 1993 from Lapeer West. I still associate with James Webber and Tina (Dunavant)Koyl on a regular basis. If anyone ever gets bored please feel free to contact us. We are never very far.

I went to college and haven't finished yet but I am going back as soon as I can. I got married June 2002. My husband was in the Marines so we moved to Virginia right after we got married. We live there for three years we were about 30 minutes from Washington D.C. I love the city it is really a great place to live. I have a two year old little girl. Her name is Gabriella but we call her Gabby. My husband and I just moved back to the Lapeer area this summer(2005). I work at the Lapeer County Bank and Trust, in the main branch up stairs. Hopefully we will be moving again soon, my husband is going to school full time to be a police officer. We will move to where he gets a job. So I am really happy that Katie (deBoves) told me about this website. Anyway I miss everyone and hope to see you at the 10th reunion. Bye!!

Hi you guys. I was pretty much a loser in high school, so most of you probably don't even know me.I played coronet in band and was in the marching band, if that helps jog your memory any.After graduation I went to Pontiac Business Institute and got a degree in the clerical field (haven't used it in years)I worked for a chiropractor for a while. I dated several guys after high school and in 1989 decided it was time to get serious. My dad passed away from a heart attack in May of that year. I was seeing a wonderful man named Chuck.We met at church where he is the organist/pianist. We were married in August of 1990. We have been extremly happy. Currently we are living in Burton. We have two girls, Emely is 9 and Ashlee is 8. I work part-time at the Mcdonald's down the street. This allows me to be home with the girls when they are home, which I enjoy. My husband works for vg's food center as their network administrator. We spend our time camping and being involved at the church. We are in the bell choir there.

Hello to everyone. After graduation from West I attended college and obtained an Associate Degree in Business. I married my wonderful husband David in 1992 and we have two beautiful daughters, Bethany and Lindsay. We lived in Davison for several years and now live in Otisville. I am fortunate to be able to stay at home to raise my girls, but I look forward to someday working outside the home once again. I hope this finds everyone healthy and happy. Take Care

After high school I completed my Finance degree at Central Michigan and moved immediately to South Florida where I have worked in the Accounting field ever since. I married my wife Allison in '97 and have a daughter Samantha who is 2 1/2 and a second due in January '03. Briefly moved back to the Detroit area in winter of '98 but left after 3 months (the Florida sun thinned my blood because I could not get warm!). Back for good in Florida and enjoy being a father and husband. Have not been back to Lapeer though since '91 and I am sure it has changed....Good luck to everyone.

After 25 years of enduring the Michigan winters, I'm now living in Fort Walton Beach, FL, right on the Gulf of Mexico. Having been chewed up by the University of Michigan, I was spit out into the world with a B.A. in Economics. Luckily, I couldn't find a job that I was qualified for other than fry engineer. Tired of the cold and with no prospects, I enrolled at Florida State University. A year and a half later I graduated with my B.S. in Computer Science and I now work for a defense contractor writing super duper, top secret, MJ-12 clearance only software. Actually, my work isn't classified, but they still make me take drug tests. I've been married for five years and have zero children because that's how many I want right now. Maybe I'll have some when I grow up. I head up to the County about twice a year to visit family and remind myself why I left. Just so you know, you are allowed to leave Michigan. You don't have to live in that crappy weather. Just don't come to Florida. We already have too many Yankees here. :) If you are interested in visiting the Gulf of Mexico, give me a holler and I'll check to see if we have any hurricanes on the way. You can reach me at poniatow@eglin.af.mil. One more thing, Dawn, I had a huge crush on you when I was in 10th grade. I apologize for not asking you out and causing your love to be unrequited. I hope you've moved on and good luck in the future. :) Hehe!!

Dare I join the pantheon of the twenty-one? Here it is in a nutshell: I'm currently serving 15-20 in Marquette, for a bad decision I made in 1987. No, actually I am passing my days in a quiet suburb of Detroit. I am married, am the father of twin daughters, and am employed as a teacher. My years of passage from graduation to manhood are filled with many tales of joy and intrigue. Don't be confused by my new last name. When the Flint River got too crowded, I started to haunt points north. My time in the Boundary Waters/Quetico Canoe Areas lead me to a new last name. To hear the rest of the story of my life as an Homme du Norde, you'll have to attend the fifteen year reunion.

Greetings one and all. I really enjoyed our 15 yr. reunion and looking forward to the 20. I just hope more can make it next time. After graduation I went into the Army for a couple of years. During that time I spent time in El Paso, TX and a few months in Germany. My high school sweet-heart, Kim Sizemore, and future wife joined me in Texas and she began her college education. After returning to MI in '89 I returned to my old high school job and began my college education. During the following 10 yrs. Kim began her teaching career in Carman Ainsworth, we had our first of three children, and I finally completed my degree and began teaching in Goodrich. We have both since obtained our Masters and live in Flushing with our children, Montana Dawn 10, Hunter 5, and Scout 2. I would like to say that I have kept in contact with many, but unfortunately this is not the case. Hopefully to alleviate this I would invite anyone that would like to contact me, please feel free to do so. You can email me at jrice@goodrich.k12.mi.us. Hope to see everyone at the 20.

After high school I went to Eastern Michigan University and received a degree in creative writing. I then moved to Portland Oregon for awhile and worked as a Bartender. I received my Masters degree in Information Library Science at Wayne State University. I worked for the Ann Arbor District Library for nine years in various departments, then I went to work for Baker College of Jackson as a Reference Librarian, and currently I manage a library in Jackson Michigan. I live in the Grass Lake area with my boyfriend Dave. Sorry, nothing too exciting.

I have been married to Rich Walker (class of 1984) since Sept. 1986. We have 3 daugther: ages 13, 11, & 6. I just graduated from Davenport University (formerly DCB) for Medical Office Management. I am working in a family practice clinic in Lake Orion. My oldest daughter is going into 9th grade and attends Lapeer West. It is so weird to go in there now. The kids look so young! Walking the halls brings back so many memories. I am amazed at how many kids roam the halls during class time, and the staff just starts conversations with them. I don't remember the halls being so busy, and we certainly had to answer for why we weren't in class. Boy, how things have changed! I see Ma Kerr every once in a while, she looks the same. I had a lot of fun at the reunion this year! I can't believe how many people looked the same after 15 years.

Hello. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1990 with a degree in Economics and Political Science, I moved to D.C. for 5 years working as an economist. That is where I met my beautiful wife (Laura). In 1995, we got married and moved to Ann Arbor so that I could get my MBA from the University of Michigan (GO BLUE!). Upon graduation in 1997, I accepted a job as a Sr. Financial Analyst for Intel and we moved to Chandler, AZ. In 4/2000, I was promoted to Finance Manager and moved to Colorado Springs, CO. We had our first child (Ethan) on 6/13/00 and I really enjoy being a dad. Now you know where to find me Jon.

Hello people. Well where do I start? I am now living in Rochester Hills, MI with my wife of 5 years Lynda. We have 3 children. Madison who is 4, Jared is 2 1/2 and Kaley is 6 months. We are also expecting our fourth in early September. Needless to say Lynda and I have been and will continue to be very busy but incredibly happy. I have been working in Royal Oak as a floor manager in a print shop for the past 6 years. My life has been very blessed after a few poor decisions years ago while I was in school down in Kentucky. I am also very involved with our church. Kensington Community Church in Troy. It has been a blast. I hope everyone is doing well.

I have nothing better to do than visit this page periodically and update it for the enormous amount of readers that visit this site. I still work for Adecco Technical in Troy as a Technical Administrative Assistant. It sounds more fun than it really is...trust me. I pay people, which forces them to be nice to me, and I search the internet for candidates to fill the job openings that we have. You would be amazed at the things people put on their resumes. CJ is 1 1/2 now, and the coolest kid ever (and I'm not just saying that because he's mine). Dennis is opening a mini-branch of Ferguson enterprises around Thanksgiving time. I'm not really looking forward to the move to Metro-Detroit, but at least I won't have to drive from Davison to Troy every day. We would be financially stable too, but I work a block from Somerset Mall and I ruin that for us (kidding). Hope everyone is doing well!

Hi everyone! It's nice to see more people have signed up on this lovely website. I went to U of M-Flint for a couple years after West, then transferred to Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids to put some shreds of artistic ability to good use. I graduated from there in 92 with a BFA in Visual Communications (graphic design, etc.). I worked at Gordon Food Service for a couple years where I ran into Darryl White (although I don't know if he's still working there). Then, I met a guy named Dave who was from the Kansas City area. We got married and he moved me here to the Heartland (nice, but not nearly enough snow). We proceeded to have 3 kids. Tiffany is now 5.5, and the good Lord blessed us twice with twins in 1998 (boy and girl, now 3). I have a home-based business doing graphic design and am now buying my husband and kids our second new house! Well, that's it for now. Write if you'd like…I'd like to hear from ANY of you. I remember ALL of you, too.

About a month ago I had a MI and now have yet another implant (a stainless steel pipe inside my right coronary artery) to go with my artifical left knee, and implanted right thumb. The 20" Pithons are not quite that any more, but God has given me yet one more chance at life and for whatever reason, know that the greatest "job" I ever had was being a part of your lives and Lapeer West Senior H.S.

Hi Everybody! It's been great reading up on everyone's lives. Hopefully more people will sign up. I went to MSU after graduation and have never left the Lansing area. I got a secondary education teaching degree with a major in biology from MSU and taught part-time in the Holt Schools. Since I never got on full-time, I switched careers and ended up an office manager at Deloitte & Touche, a public accounting firm. I enjoyed that so much, I've never gone back to teaching. I married Greg in September of '95 and we had a baby boy, Wesley, in June of '99. I decided to stay home full time with Wes instead of going back to work. I love it so much, although I think it's a lot harder than working 40 hours a week at a 'normal' job! I see Mary Kay (Seelye) Swift quite a bit and our two boys enjoy playing together. Greg and I enjoy camping quite a bit and we play volleyball as often as we can. Gotta try to stay active! We have a house in Eaton Rapids, which is south of Lansing. E-mail: lissamaebird@yahoo.com

Hi, everyone. After high school, I went to MSU and just recently finally left. I graduated with a BS in Zoology and took a full time position as a Clinical Laboratory Spealists in Cytogenetics. Basically, I analyzed chromosomes to diagnose genetic diseases. I was a lab rat for 10 years. In August 2000, I finished my Master's degree in Public Administration (Healthcare Administration emphasis). I then worked as the MSU Department of Surgery's Academic Administrator for the Surgical Residency and Medical Student Clerkship programs. That lead to my current position this past April (2006) at Ingham Regional Medical Center in Lansing. I'm the Administrative Director for Medical Education. Basically, I'm in charge of the daily business of running 20 medical residency programs and medical student clerkships. I married a really great guy, Scott Clarke in 1993(we met at MSU, big surprise). He is an accountant for Sparrow Hospital. We are now working for competing hospitals. We have an extremely intelligent nine year old daughter(Cassandra), born two weeks before our ten year reunion. I don't have a clue where she got the brains. We also have the most adorable three year old boy (Spencer). He is going to out perform us in IQ as well. We are soccer coaches, active in church, and big MSU Baskerball fans...GO GREEN! See you all at the 20th reunion (July 14,2007). (email me at etapa@msu.edu)

I also earned my Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification in December 1999. I'm single and on the prowl for my Mr. Right (only finding "Mr. Right Nows" lately.) In the meantime, I live in Sterling Heights with my two cats (Kelcie & Kala) and a beta fish (Sparky). My email is lavonstough@yahoo.com. Hope you all are doing well!

I became even more of a nerd since graduation. But now being a nerd is a good thing. I persued my career as a computer programmer. I worked for the Lapeer County Road Commission in the Engineering Department where I implemented a Geographic Information System. I then moved on to EDS (Electronic Data Systems). If you haven't heard of it, it's the company Ross Perot founded and sold to GM. I worked there for just over 5 years and I recently just quit. I went from a company of over 110,000 people to a company where I am the 4th employee. I get to work at home 4 days a week. My beautiful wife Patricia (Patricia Squire LWHS Alumni also), and my cute son of 5 months old enjoy me being home most of the time.I love to work and play on computers even in my spare time. I still like to play sports like football, tennis and basketball when we get enough people together, but we are all getting a little old. If anyone remembers me and wants to send an email, feel free to do so.Terry Carr

Hey everyone! Just checking in - have not emailed or talked with hardly anyone recently. So the 20 year reunion was really fun - and I must say us Hadley Hillbillies dominated! To those of you I got the chance to speak with, it was great to do so. To those of you that I DID not get the chance to speak with, I am disappointed, and it is totally my bad. Too much to drink too fast and I barely got the rounds made. Next event I will behave MUCH better. I think. To those of you that did not attend, PLEASE conside coming if we have a 25 year, and if not, the 30. Time is running faster and faster these days so take the time to get together once in a while and cut loose for a few. Me, I am great, job is hectic, life is good. My beau Mike has four great yet extremely YOUNG kids - 7, 6, 5 and 3. OHMYGAWD do they keep us busy. They are very sweet, smart and fun and it is a pleasure to have them in my home. Trying to get a garage built on top of all of that commotion; if anyone out there is a licensed contractor and would like to give me a bid, now is the time. We have a very pretty 79 Firebird that needs a garage around it really big time! I guess that is all for now. If anyone would like to contact me, please do so any time! Take it easy.

Hello Class of 1987. I graduated from Eastern Michigan Universtiy with a degree in Business Education in December 2005. Finally Did It!!!!! I have been married for 17 years and have 2 wonderful children. Alycia (14) and Andy (11). I am currently subbing in 2 different districts in the area. I have actually had my daughter a couple times. It is weird being in her high school but it is fun too. I am hoping to find a full time job in the fall. Keep your fingers crossed. In my spare time I am usually at a soccer, basketball, or bowling function with the kids. We also spend a lot of time up north near Lewiston riding quads. It is great to have a place up there. My Dad lives there--beats having to buy a place of our own. Hope to see you all at the 20th!!!

This is a great way to keep in touch. I was searching for some old friends, and was rather dissapointed not to see more of you on here. As I was beginning to leave, I decided that if I was ever to hear from any of you I had better leave a little something behind. After graduation, I stayed pretty close to home. Worked at Lapeer County Bank for about 8 years, until I had my daughter, Nicole, now 4 1/2. WAS married for almost 9 years, sometimes it's better just to move on. I am currently getting a higher education at O.C.C. in Auburn Hills, I will get my Associates degree after fall semester and will transfer to Oakland University in January. Right now I am living in Leonard, just east of Oxford. If anyone has e-mail address for Sandy Colley or Dawn Banners, could you hook me up? Thanks - hope to see you at the next reunion.

After high school I went to MSU and graduated with a BS in Clinical Laboratory Science. I've worked in 3 different hospitals, the last one being McLaren in Flint. Before moving down south we lived in Grand Blanc. I married Greg Csapo (from Grand Blanc - he thought people from Lapeer all lived on farms and had cows). We lived in Davison for a few years and then moved to Grand Blanc. We have 2 beautiful kids. Nicholas is 6 and Alison is 3. We decided to make the move to North Carolina after most of my family had migrated here and absolutely loved it. I have a job with a company called Labcorp in Research Triangle Park and I do lab testing on animal specimens for a PreClinical Trials lab. We love it down here and I don't miss the winters (sorry). I would love to hear from you, but don't expect a quick reply. Being a full-time working mom doesn't leave me with much time to read and write e-mail. Bye for now :)

Hi Everyone...Well, unlike a lot of you, I have never left Lapeer. I went to cosmotology school after graduation, married Mike and worked at The Ritz for 5 years. After our second child was born I left the "hair biz" and worked part-time in the accounting office at Wal-Mart. We now have three wonderful children Kayla(9), Jacob(8), and Tristan(4 1/2).I am blessed to stay at home with them now, but plan on working for the schools when the youngest goes to school. Five years ago I gave my life to Jesus Christ and my life has never been better. Mike and I are very involved with our church and we are youth leaders for the 4th through 6th graders. It's awesome! I love working with the younger generation. I would love to hear from any of you! Take care...

I moved away from Lapeer long before graduation, but have kept in touch with some of you. I graduated from Pickerington High School in Pickerington, Ohio in 1987. I earned my Bachelor's in Journalism and Master's in American Culture Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. I now work for the Center for Business Knowledge at Ernst & Young LLP in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. My husband, Jason, and I have been married for ten years. Jason is the Editor-in-Chief at _Alternative Press_, an internationally-distributed music magazine. We live in Cleveland with our two cats and two dogs. I'd love to hear from you! Please email me at esvpettigrew@yahoo.com. I enjoyed our 20th reunion! I was glad to have had the chance to catch up with some of you! :-)

Hi everyone! It was great hearing what everyone has been up to! I graduated from the UofM-Flint with a BS in Accounting in 1992 and worked for various accounting firms for a few years and then left public accounting for a more exciting life. Married a great guy from Davison and have been married for eleven years with two wonderful and terrific kids-Cole 4.5 and Taylor 2. For the last 5 years I have been a Controller for a surgery center in Royal Oak and live in Goodrich. Life is great and the kids are growing fast! It would be great to hear from some of you, feel free to email. Talk to you soon!

I was laid off for a year after the company I worked for was bought out. I completed my Masters in 2003 and taught a few classes at Davenport University. At that time I started working with the USDA in their single family housing mortgage program. Since then I have been promoted to Budget Analyst for the state for our division, Rural Development. I married Meredith Hodgson, whose father owned The Little Miner's Shop over by Dupont Airport. We will be married 15 years this year. No children, just a cat. We have a small jewelry business where we do craft shows. We have two stores where we sell our merchandise: Treasures in Owossso and Our Place in Durand. We are also completing the building of our new home in Swartz Creek. If anyone is interested in moving to Flint we have a 1292 sq ft 3 Bdrm 1.5 bath 2 story home for sale at a great price by GMI/Kettering in Mott Park!

HAPPY 2004 to everyone. For the uninitiated: Working on the NYC film scene. Living in New Jersey with a view of the Empire State Building (Until they put up more ugly Yuppie Warehouses.) Live in a GREAT, mostly Cuban Neightborhood (AMAZING FOOD!) . For the slightly initiated: Narrowly missed working Times Square for New Years, but that meant that I got to ring in the New Year with some friends in a much more relaxed atmosphere. Spent most of the next day nursing my gf's hangover, and entertaining. I am trying to come up with some different vacation ideas, if you went (or live) any place that is even remedially interesting, lemme know at pizzamonkey63@hotmail.com. The leading contender is teaching English in Cambodia for 3 months next winter, but I am looking for something before then, that is less.... well LESS! ANYWAY enough jibbering. Hope everyone has a great year. Contact me if you feel like it, or are arranging to be in New York. I have been told that I give great tour (as awkward as that is to admit). More to come later.

Hello! A lot has happened since 1987. Where to begin... I graduated from U of M - Flint with a BA in English.

Luckily, my sons keep me going and I cherish every moment with them. I am in the process of writing a book and I have plans to have it published sometime soon! I look forward to hearing from my fellow alumni and I will be eager to reply.If any of you have any photos out there that we can use for our next class reunion, please let me know!

Hello everybody. I figure since I have missed every reunion so far and will probably miss the 20th as well I thought I would drop a line and catch up a bit. I went to Wayne State for a bachelors in Jazz Studies and since then I have stayed in the downtown Detroit area where I play music in various groups for a living. I also teach privately and freelance. If you want to send me an email THAT WOULD BE GREAT!!!!!!!!! I can be reached at brotels@yahoo.com.

Wow! It's been a long time since I took a look at the alumni page. Guess I better update a bit. Dan and I will celebrate 17 years this July. We also have a fourth addition to our family, a boy named Ryan. Shawna is 11, Jessica 8, Alyssa 5, and Ryan 15mos. We're done people, don't worry! We also have moved back to the Columbiaville area, still somewhat countryfolk I guess. I am enjoying being a full time stay at home mom now for awhile. More accurately I should say I am a full time taxi driver for four non-paying customers!! Can I a get an "AMEN"!! Well enough babbling, Take care people and I hope to see you at our next reunion!

From Tennessee to Texas to Florida and finally back to Coldwater Michigan where I am currently. I work for Verizon Telephone as a Central Office Technician. Some of the hobbies that I enjoy are playing basketball and watching movies with my wife. I would love to hear from anyone that remembers me and would like to say hello.

I have a son, William (5 1/2 yrs.) froma previous marriage and a daughter from my new marriage, Katherine (1 1/2 yrs.). I have been married to my current husband three years this month (July). We remodeledan old grain barn into a three bedroom home; which was not only a lot of fun to do, but a learning experience as well. I have my own business out of my home, doing child day care. I love it. I enjoy being able to be available for my children and my husband. I am planning to go back and finish up my child day care degree at Mott Community college hopefully this winter. Besides running my day care business; I enjoy spending time with my family, scrapbooking all my photos, reading, and bowling on occassion. I am looking forward to the 15 year reunion and seeing everyone. I have a new e-mail address, so feel free to e-mail me. I'd like to hear from anyone from the class of 1988.

I helped with the 10- and 15- year reunions but now have passed the torch to the very capable Lori Flees.

15 years, seems impossible. I have been married for 10 years and we have 2 children, a daughter 6 and a son 2 1/2. We live just outside of Washington DC in Maryland, my husbands job brought us out here. At first it was a little too warm but after a few years I have grown to love it. Cold is a four letter word in our house. We did some traveling before we had children and I worked at an investment banking company trading stocks. Now I am a MOM. And I really enjoy it. Our children keep me very busy, our daughter has just started with the local hockey program and she really enjoys it. She is only one of two girls in the program. Soon swimming and school starts and I will be involved in that too. Would be great to hear from everyone. Take care.

That brings me to 3 sons (no jokes, please) and life sure is busy with 3(ages 5, 8, & 10)!! Recently moved into a much larger house to accomodate. I'm still working in Ann Arbor as a Regional Service Manager for a franchising company and loving it. I made the leap to go back to school to get my degree so I'm trying to take care of 3 boys, a house, a full time job and still go to school full time. It's quite a challenge!

Hello everyone. Let's make it short, although I do like reading everyone else's triumphs. Married 8 years to John. Julia is 3 going on 13! John and I combined have 4 kids and 3 grandkids...now if that doesn't start some conversations...! Living in Ypsilanti for 10 years, will be moving somewhere in 2 more years when Julia starts school. Have been doing Nuclear Medicine since finishing school, along the way met John, got married, finished Grad school, had Julia, left the hospital scene, and started our own Asset Management business. So now with a Securities license I find my professional life way MORE rewarding. So life has turned out nicely. Still a lifetime to go. Just never know what the next curve will bring. Hope to see you all at the 15th party! Just in case anyone wants to get in touch my e-mail is mishaz30@yahoo.com Later...

Hey guys! I know that I havn't seen or spoken to most of you since graduation, mostly because I've only been in Lapeer for a total of about 7 months since 88'. Some of you may remember when I sunk my mother's Ford Bronco in Lake Nepessing before graduation... I guess that could have been an indicator to what I have done since then. I'm approching my 15 year mark in the Navy. 3 years driving gun boats(SBU) in South and Central America; 6 years as a Deep Sea diver and currently 5 plus in Bomb Disposal, working mostly in Europe and the Mid East. I absolutley love my career. It has definatley satisfied my need for adrenaline, even at the cost of a marriage and 9 fallen friends in the last 2 years. I've lived in Virginia Beach, Va(when I'm not deployed)since 93'. I can't imagine not living near the ocean. Well, I'll get off my soap box... Hope to make it next month to see you!

After graduation, I stayed in the Lapeer area working at Hugo's pizza. I worked there for a few years and then I got a job in Oxford at a small Ford affiliated assembly plant. While working there, I had my daughter Sawyer in 1993. In 1994, I was hired into the United States Post Office at the downtown Flint office. I have been there ever since. Not the best job in the world, but it pays well. My daughter and I now live in Davison, and one of her teachers last year was Jody (Doty) Kosiara. That was kinda weird. My best friend is still Anna (Bostwick) Ruhl, and I still talk to Bobbie Morey occasionally. If we knew each other, drop me an email, I would love to hear from you!

I returned home from the Army in 1996 and continued to serve in the reserves for 3 more years. Most of the time I was overseas so I got to see a lot of the world. I lived in Germany for three years and Korea for two. I was in the first Gulf War but didn't get called up for the second one. I started with the Michigan State Police in 1998 and lived in Monroe for a few years. I transfered to the Bridgeport Post and now I live in Saginaw. So far, life's been pretty good. Now that I've got my schooling finished, traveled the world, and done just about everthing there is to do, I'm looking forward to family life. My girlfriend Mandy of three years and I are making some plans and doing alot of dreaming right now, so it looks like more happiness is just around the corner. Now that I'm back in Michigan to stay, I'd like to see how everyone is doing and stay in better touch. Looking forward to the renuion this year. Take care - see ya!

Wow ! I guess you really can find everything on the web. How is everyone ? I'm doing pretty good. I married Andy Stump about a year after high school and we just celebrated our 10 year anniversary. We have 3 kids, a girl - Lexi (8), and two boys - Jack (6) and Noah (4). They are fabulous. Aside from that, I have taken a few college courses here and there and am looking forward to graduating sometime this millenium, but I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Maybe someday, when I'm forty or so.... for now I am happy being a full time wife and mother. I hope everyone else is doing well. Feel free to e-mail me if the spirit grabs ya.

I've been married for 14 years to Tom Lang. He's a great man except that he's an MSU grad and lifelong fan! UGH!! My son, Drew, is 10 and sides with his Dad. My daughter, Christine, is 13 and sides with me; We say, "Go Blue!" I got my Master's in Secondary Education from U of M, Ann Arbor, in June 2005. Immediately after, I was hired by Canton High School to teach Language Arts. I love it, but it is a time consuming profession. When I'm not teaching, I'm hanging with family and friends, or being a taxi for my children. My daughter dances, does pom pon, and is often in local plays. My son plays basketball and guitar. They are quite smart and talented. I absolutely love watching them do their thing as they develop into great people. We travel a lot in the summer because I'm off from teaching, and my husband is a freelance Public Relations executive. We feel very fortunate to have fairly flexible schedules. My greatest stress in life is grappling with the fact that my daughter is about to be a freshman in high school! How did this happen?! Others tell me I will survive but hormones, boys, and driver's training are on the horizon. How does anyone survive that? LOL. For those of you who feel my pain, best wishes. I hope to be laughing about the journey 10 years from now.

After graduation I went to Michigan Tech and roomed with Travis Bach for four years. I loved college and hated to grow up, but did so anyway in 1993 with a BS in engineering, and later followed with my MS from Oakland Univ. I moved back to Lapeer for a couple of years and lived on Barnes Lake. In 1995 I married Sharon, moved to Goodrich, and started working for Chrysler. In 1997 our son Joshua was born, and year and a half later our daughter Kennedy followed. In 1999 we moved to Oakville, Ontario - a suburb of Toronto. We love it here, Toronto is great, I play hockey every week and the beer has flavor. We plan on staying here another year or two, and will eventually settle back in Goodrich. Keevin's idea of a 12 year reunion this summer sounds great, hope to see all of you there.

Hi yall. Since everyone says I have a country accent now. Just moved back to Mi this year of 2000. Spent four years serving the USAF. In 96 I separated and found a job in computers with a bank. Funny part is I hated computers at West. I spent the last six years living in VirginiaBeach, but I actually lived out of a hotel for 9 months of each those years. My latest work with a governement and the Department of State contract kept me on the road. I am single because of all the travel, but I do not regret anywhere I have been. I live in Rochester Hills now and work in Auburn Hills at Volkswagen as the Information Technology Manager. Much less travel yeah! Ran into some of the old crew when I returned, and recieved my first drinking buzz in forever. Still looking for a few of the others. I will be attending Oakland University next semester to complete a Masters in Computer Engineering. Give me a shout! Do not know anyone down here and looking at getting out of the house and having fun. Hey I am single I can do that! Always checking email.

When I was talking with Keevin he mentioned this website. It was great to read how everyone is doing. Well, after west, I went to WMU for 6 long years. I changed My major 3 times and never did graduate.(but had alot of fun). During that time I had a close call with the marriage thing. That didnt work so in 1995 I moved to Atlanta, Georgia. I spent 2 years working for a Small Mortgage Company and at the same time enjoyed the atlanta night life... I finally got my act together and graduated from the police academy in 1997. I've been a police officer with Dekalb county for 5 years. It is a metropolitan police department with over 800 officers. I thoroughly enjoy it.(I've seen alot of crazy things). In 1999 I met my love, Laura. She worked for an Apartment Community where I lived. We got married in October of 2000. We bought a home in the burbs of Atlanta. Our daughter Mackenzie was born in June of 2002. She is our joy!!!I hope to see everyone at the 15 year reunion...Until then be safe and look me up if you come thru Hotlanta!

Sept '08 Update: I'm living in Omaha Nebraska now. This should be my last assignment and I'll probably retire from the Air Force here in the next 3-4 years. I haven't been back to see my family in Michigan for a while and was thinking about a trip next year. That just happens to coincide with our 20 yr point...anyone know if a reunion is going to be planned? If so, drop me a line and I'll try to line up my vacation with that so I can knock both out. Hope all is going well with everyone else, take care. Hello, I was surfing around, came across the lapeer west webpage and was surprised to see everyone listed. So, I figured I'd post my info. I joined the air force shortly after graduating and have been in for the past 13 years now. I met my wife while stationed in Nebraska 10 years ago and have a 6 yr old daughter and 4 yr old son. I've recently got my degree in education from the university of southern mississippi and received a commission as a lieutenant. I've travelled around alot over the years, visiting places like south korea, guam, qatar and various stateside locations. I currently live in great falls, montana and will probably spend the next 3 years here before moving on. I come back to michigan occasionally to visit family, but otherwise haven't been able to keep in contact with anyone. I'd be intrested in getting together for a 15 yr reunion, so if anyone hears anything, let me know. take care and drop me a line sometime.

We have 2 children, Mackenzie(almost 2) and Harry(8 months) I work as a sales rep. for Mid States Bolt & Screw here in town. My wife is the girls swimming coach for East/West H.S.

Single, no kids. I had about as much fun in college as I did in high school, no offense meant, but I pulled off honors once or twice. My e-mail is MalcolmJ71@cs.com, when I left Lapeer, I really left, I'd like to hear how things have gone for everybody else.

OK, I've been reading these since the website was established. I guess its time...Let's see, I graduated from Mott University(HA HA)with an associates in Gerontology. I only went there because it was free if I played volleyball for them. Worked in that profession for about 8 years before meeting my twin in a male (I know it sounds scary), his name is Scott and he graduated from Millington in 88 and went to CMU on a track scholarship. He is a salesman for Joseph Chevrolet in Millington. We had a baby girl 19 months ago, her name is Grace Catherine. Thus, I had a career change. I now work primarily from home for Flagstar Bank as a mortgage loan officer. We built a home just outside of Millington (in Otisville)about 2 years ago. I am coaching Varsity Volleyball for Millington. I guess you could say I turned into a bumpkin. I also have an 11 year old step-daughter named Taylor. She is about a half an inch shorter than I am now, I can't wait until she hits 6'2"! It is so nice to hear that so many of you are happy in life. I know I am! I see exactly four people from Lapeer, Anne Fox(Goss), Mikki Marston, Heather Nagy, and Marci Eberle. I actually bowl on a league in Lapeer with the first three! Uh Oh, I have a golf membership too! Does that mean we're getting old? Well I've rambled enough. Drop a line if you care to. God Bless.

Hey All!!! Greetings from the city that never sleeps. I moved to New York City five years ago after getting out of the Navy. I was an F-14 mechanic and served in the Gulf War (What a joke that was, but don't get me started!). While stationed in San Deigo I met my wife, Christine, and we now have two terror children. My Daughter, Taylor, just turned 5. My son, Ryan is a year and a half now. I now know why our parents always said "I can't wait untill you have kids of your own."!! Work wise I've done just about everything mechanical out there. I started out customizing trucks in Lapeer. I was lucky and got myself into an aerospace plant in Lake Orion as an Assembly Engineer, but soon after my wife's mother got sick and we moved to the Big Apple to take care of her. My first job here was as an auto mechanic in a small garage. I got sick of watching the place rip people off and went hunting for a "real" job. Next I dabbled in robotic automation as a Assembly Engineer agian, but I had to satisfiy my Aerospace calling and went back to work in another shop here (always searching for that something better). That place SUCKED big time, and one day I walked out. I had gotten up enough in the ranks to see alot of the unsafe stuff that goes on in Aerospace and I couldn't in good mind keep working in an enviroment that I was growing more fearful of everyday. Needless to say I avoid flying as much as possible after everything I've seen over the years.Once agian Luck smiled on me and I got a call from an Elevator company here in the Bronx. I think I've found a place I can stay awile now. I design elevators for projects all over the world. In fact I did the elevators for the new Tiger Stadium!Other than that I keep busy. I played amature hockey at Chelese Piers (got to play with Micheal J. Fox before he got sick) but the abuse I've taken over the years finally caught up and my back couldn't take it anymore. So I went back to my roots and started fishing agian. You may remember that when we had those dress up days at school and for "your favorite sport day" I wore waders and a fishing vest!! I am now a part-time fishing guide here on the east coast, Boy was I suprised to find that fishing here is better than anywhere else I've been! Go figure, New York City, who'd a thought!! Another neat thing is I got to see the West Band play at Carnige Hall and ran into some of the staff from West that still reconized me.To my disappointment I'm getting a little fat, My theory is that once a guy has kids, this sends a signal to his brain that his job here is done, and your body goes to crap. Loosing my hair too. Rogaine, what a joke. All in all, I am becoming more and more like the grown up I never wanted to be.UPDATE:I've been meaning to update this since 9/11, just havn't been able to think of what to say.I think of growing up in Michigan, going to school, and how New York City seemed like such a far off place. One that existed only on TV or in movies. I look back at what I wrote before and how positive and happy it seems. Things sure have changed since "it" happened."Only in New York" has taken on new meaning. I had alot of friends at WTC, my work took me there and in that nieghborhood several time a week. I was in the south tower the night before. Its amazing but nobody I was close too was lost. Even my friend Jean, that was on the 84th floor.Its been almost 10 months. They are still having funerals and memorials, they just finished cleaning up the debris. There is now nothing but a big hole where one of my favorite places in the world used to be.I'll be coming back to Lapeer in a couple of weeks, first time home since 9/11. I'm wondering how much has changed back in Lapeer? I know that it can't compare to here, I kind of hope that nothing has changed.....I could use some stability.

Hello everyone! Well, after graduation I spent some time in school in the local area and I couldn't decide what I wanted to be when I grew up. So, I enlisted in the Navy hoping to clear my mind and have a few adventures along the way. After the service, I moved back to Michigan and enrolled at NMU in Marquette(U.P.) and earned a B.S. in cytology. More recently, I finished a 12 month practicum in cytology at the Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin and moved back to this great state to start a new position in the cytology dept. at MidMichigan Medical Center in Midland. On Feb. 14th of this year (in Las Vegas), I was married to an extraordinary woman named Laurie. We are expecting our first "little one" this fall and the radiologist said that it looks like a girl so we are keeping our fingers crossed. This parenting thing seems a bit scary but I think that we are ready for the challenge. Well, that's the short version so if you'd like to hit the golf ball around, play some HOCKEY, or just chat about the past, present, or future just write. Bye!

Hey guys-it's been nice to see so many updates to the site. I haven't checked it in quite a while. I'll update, but the general info for me remains the same...I got my BS from WMU in '93 and my MA from CMU in '94. My degree is in audiology (diagnosing and treating hearing impairment). After graduation I married Scott Timmer (we met at WMU) and he "dragged me" to Chillicothe, Ohio (50 miles south of Columbus) where we've been for nearly 10 years now. Our daughter, Jamie was born in April '98, and started kindergarten this year. I work 1 1/2 days a week for a local ENT surgeon. The biggest drama for us was my diagnosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma in April 2002. I went through chemo most of that summer without achieving a remisson. In May/June 2003, I had a stem cell transplant and am happy to report good results so far. They say the next 6 or 8 months are critical ones so we're praying hard and having fun. I'm feeling really good and have a chic short hair-do! We hope to make it to the reunion this August. Drop me a line!

I'm only about 20min north of Austin. So, far it's a great place to live. There is so much to do here! I figured I was do for a life change, so I thought I might as well go big. And, what better place than Texas. Still single....figured I can find me some nice southern girls. Other than that, I'm not going to ramble on. But, I spend most of my day in front of this computer so if you want to get in touch, email me! UPDATE:4-10-07 Still here in Texas enjoying the beautiful weather! UPDATE:9-3-08 Still alive and enjoying Texas!

Wow, it's been so long! I just discovered this site. Well, I graduated West Point in '93, served my required 5 years in the Army stationed at Ft. Carson, CO and decided to become a civilian again in April of 1998. Army life, ultimately, wasn't what I wanted to do forever. Since then I have been a sales rep for a surgical instrument company based out of Germany called Karl Storz Endoscopy. I cover the NW Ohio area and live just outside of Toledo, OH. I love my job and hope to do it forever. I wish I had known about the reunion. I married Katina Schmidt in Dec '94 and we just had our first child, Abigail, in June of 2001. We are quite happy and would love to hear from anyone who cares to drop us a line! Best wishes to all!

I was pleasantly surprised to read so many of my female classmates staying home with their kids! That's awesome! After HS I attended art school and received my BFA from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit in photography. I used to come home on the weekends during school to work as a waiter at E.G. Nick's...where I met my soulmate. When I first layed my eyes on the woman who would train me, it was (here it comes) "love at first sight", and I new I would marry her (I know, it's sickning ;) Her name then was Danielle Denomme (a LE grad in 1991). It was a match straight from God that has blessed me ever since. We married in 1994 and bought our first home in Madison Heights, MI. I worked for a fashion photographer doing shoots for magazines like the New York Times, Redbook, Men's Health, and my wife worked full-time as well. We were newly married and enjoying each other in a more "urban" lifestyle much different from our Lapeer upbringing. I bounced around quite a bit feeling out the waters of my chosen field. I worked at a graphic design firm in Royal Oak for a year as a sales rep./art director/media buyer/photographer and travelled to Chicago often on business (my biggest client was there). From there I worked at a studio in Troy, MI shooting everything from TV commercials to "widgets". I also started my photojournalism career freelancing for area newspapers, which is where my "true love" (vocationally speaking) lies. In 1997 we bought our second home in Lovely Lapeer to be closer to both of our very dear families. I worked for the Tri-County Times in Fenton, MI for four years until 2000. I quit after a very exciting stay and for the past year or so, I've been working exclusively on my own as a full-time freelance photographer(Domenic Centofanti Photography - (810) 675-4746). Danielle and I have been blessed with two beautiful children, Isabella Grace, 2, and Gavin Riley (3 months) and are happily married and very much in love with one another. We attend CornerStone Christian Fellowship in downtown Lapeer and love our church family as our own. I play drums on our worship team and thoroughly enjoy it! I wish now that I took band in high school, instead of made fun of them. We try to take life day-by-day and not rush this precious time with our kids. It's great to read these and hear how each one of my classmates/friends are doing. And I can't believe how much I've been writing, so I'll stop now. My email is photoweb@tir.com and I'd love to hear from as many of you as possible. God Bless...

I moved to Chicago for 2 years after graduating from Oakland University in 1993 with a degree in accounting. In 1999 I married my best friend and the most special person in my life (Jackie Hicks Class of 90). In July of 2000 we had our first child Brooke. She is alot of fun and puts many smiles on our faces. In January 2001 I became a partner in a small CPA firm located in Rochester Hills. I play alot of golf in the summer and hockey in the winter.

Hi everyone - I just found out about this web page today at the reunion. I hope we can find more of our classmates for the next one. I am married with 3 boys, Ryan (12), Jack (2) and Nicholas (1). I used to work in title insurance but now I am a stay at home mom. It was hard at first but now I do not think my husband will ever get me back to work. I live in Troy, Michigan. I feel very at home here. Email if you would like ... I'd love to hear from you all.

Sorry to have been such a stranger all these years. After graduation I got my BSE in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineeringfrom U of M. I roomed for three years with James Chitty (LWH '88). My first two jobs were with Engineering firms in New York City, where I met my wife Kelly in 1994. We married in 1997, just before moving to Houston, TX. I now work for a Marine classification Society (sort of a regulatory body for ships and offshore structures). I have been working on my MBA for the past three years at the University of Houston and will finish in December (2001). We areplanning on moving back to New York after I finish my degree. Our son, Jonathon, was born in January 2000, we missed the century(not really) baby by 7 days. Since March of 2000 we have managed to lose $170,000 on the stock market :-(, but I'm confident we will get back to where we were eventually. Hopefully I will be able to make it to the 15 year reunion, I'd like to see everyone again.

Hi all! Thoguht I would update. It has been awhile, that is for sure. Everything is still pretty much the same. Just a few differences. I have been married to my best friend for almost 5 years now. I have 4 children, the twins (Kara and Catrina) are 11, Cynthia is 3, and (fianlly)my son is 20 months. I work for the State of Michigan. It s a living. Really I do enjoy my job, it is however much more stressfull than being a Mom. (thought I would never be able to say that one.) I have had some difficult times this past year. I was diagnosed with MS last summer, and now take shots for that. Can you believe this one, I now get to take "drugs" to help me to stay awake. No-Doze? Nope, not strong enough the doctor says!!!! Anyway, I am doing well with this course of medicine. Just a few adjustments in life is all. Anyway, hope to see you all in August.

Hey everyone, I can't believe it's been 12 years already. It's been a lot of fun reading about what everyone has been up to. I, have been living in Greenville, North Carolina for six years now and yes, to most of you I do have an accent. I found Mr. Right here in the South. My husband Tracy and I have been married for three years now and have a two year old son, Logan. We spend our time between Greenville, where I am a Customer Service Rep with East Carolina Farm Credit, and the beach (Moore Head City), where Tracy is a Commercial Fisherman. I don't come back to Michigan much these days because all of my immediate family, minus one sister, have moved within five miles of me. I have to say I don't miss the snow and cold but do miss seeing the faces of old friends. I hope everyone continues to do well and be happy with what life brings. I would love to here from any of you.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to post something. It is great to hear about your lives. It is interesting to know that Matt Byrd was in NYC on 9/11, Nick plays the drums in his Church's band, Vicki B. had her first daughter and Harlan is a family man! Frankly, it is good just to hear that you're alive & well. As for me, I got married in '98. I'm a professor at OU. For those of you who know my sister, Jen, she has a 2 and 1/2 year old boy. Oops, maybe I should mention she's married too (not that it's a big deal otherwise--). Best wishes to everyone.

After graduation I went to MSU and got a BS in Forestry. From there I spent 2 years in the Peace Corps in Senegal, West Africa. Didn't know what I wanted to do after that so I was a substitute teacher at LW for a year. Decided that teaching was not for me (at least at the high school level) and went on to the University of Arkansas where I got an MS in Horticulture. In 1999 I moved to Florida, started work with the USDA-ARS (Agricultural Research Service)at the Sugarcane Field Station, got married in May 2000 (Tony Stark came to the wedding), then decided to come back to Arkansas and get a PhD in Horticulture. Am currently working as a Research Specialist in the Horticulture Department and taking classes toward the PhD -- will finish sometime in the next 5 years (that sounds so far away but really it isn't).

I'm no longer missing in action, my husband has found me!! In 1993 I graduated from U of M-Flint with a BS in Education. However, I decided not to persue a teaching career. I began working for Motor Parts Federal Credit Union (service Daimler Chrysler) in 1996. Currently I am the manager of three departments; Visa, Collections, and Compliance. In June 1997, Scott and I were married. We have no children as of yet. Much of our time is occupied with remodeling our home in Auburn Hills. Scott and I have done a lot of traveling in the past several years, much of which has been for backpacking in the national parks. We have been to the Smokies, Rockies, Glacier National Park, White Mountains, and several sights around Michigan. Our next big adventure begins in two weeks from today. We are off to the great state of Alaska for two weeks. Although we will not be backpakcing, we will be going to Mt. McKinley and Denali National Park. Adventures will come in the form of kayaking, white water rafting (class III and IV rapids), horseback riding, hiking, and whatever else we can find to do. We look forward to seeing all of you on June 16th!!

Hello everyone! I am updating my info after Erin told me that my life story sounded much too dull to be true. After highschool and my summer of packing pickles at Valasic with Jenny (Helsom) Crandall, I attended Western Michigan University with Erin McIntosh who served as my roommate/drinking buddy. (College is now a big blur...Heee Hee!) My first big job out of school was as a waitress at Ruby Tuesdays where I met my new beer drinking buddy, my husband Corey. A year later we shacked up and I landed a job working for a chemical company at a couple of GM plants in Flint. Corey and I tied the knot in Vegas in 1997 and no, Elvis did not walk me down the isle(he wasn't available). We purchased a home in the College Cultural ' hood in Flint(south of Mott) in '97 also. Three years later I have a new job selling industrial filtration media to the automobile industry and Corey lays ceramic tile for a living. We have two furry children(kitties) Farley and Alley that keep us parentally content for the time being. Thanks for sneaking a peak at my life! See ya!

I am married to a wonderful man and have three kids: Kevin (8), Rhianna (3) and Tommy (3). Yes, twins. I haven't sat down in those 3 years. I work at Saint Marys in Saginaw as the Nurse Manager for the Cardivascular Intensive Care Units. I live in Birch Run and previously had lived 4 years in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The only thing I brought back to Michgian besides my family is my love for the Dallas Stars. Please don't hate me RedWing fans. I can't wait to see everyone for our 12year reunion.

UPDATE-- This has been a long time coming since my last input. After reading everyones activities, I am proud of all the accomplishments that we all have had over the years from WEST. I am still living in North Carolina. I moved down here from a previous job relocation. That job wanted me to relocate to Chicago, but I decided to take my chances here in North Carolina. Were I decided to start from the bottom again. I started working for Wal-Mart (A supercenter) in the produce department. Just under a year I was asked to go into Management. I decided to go for it, and now I work all the time (at least that is what my wife says). Working with Wal-Mart might allow me to move back to Michigan some day. Even-though I know Lapeer is getting a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Drop me a line if you want, I'm sometimes slow to respond, but I will, maedgette@wmconnect.com

I am currently working at Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. In Gaffney, SC. I live in Ellenboro, NC, but will not get into the whole NC/SC issue. I am a design engineer who happens to be designing school busses, and actually have some on order for Lapeer Co. schools. I have lived in NC since mid 1993, where I first started working at a place that make automated equipment for the brick industry. I then resided in Asheville, NC. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats a 15ft python to keep me busy along with the 9 months of mowing lawns. I have been mowing since the first week in March, not that you all are interested. But NC's growing season really makes some beautiful areas. Hope to see some of you at the reunion.

The company is based in Cincinnati, but I work in Dearborn, developing online update training for Ford,our biggest customer. I am still happily single with no kids (I'm far too "young" to settle down). Jenny Scrimger (now Jenny Ziegler) is still my best friend, so I guess its true that some things never change. I'm looking forward to June 16 and seeing everybody again, although that "MIA" list looks a little intimidating. Any amateur Sherlock Holmes out there?

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree at Mott Community College and then went on to Michigan State to study Speech Pathology & Audiology....didn't finish. Dennis and I have two daughters, Rebecca (5) and Lydia (2 - in January). I had been a secretary for many years, but gave that up just over a year ago when we moved from Davison to El Paso. TX. The weather is great and we have mountains in our backyard! Can't beat that!

If anyone has any would appreciate an e-mail with them. Still in Alabama. They call yanke's who come south to live a "dam yankee" because we won't go back. Will be married 10 years on August 14. When God blesses you he really puts it on you. My Daughter starts 9th grade this year. Boy that'll make you feel old quick. Just seems like all of us were just there. God has blessed us with our 1st home. It's an old southern style house, built in 1934. Lots of old wood and love. If any of you have ever been to Alabama, I would encourage you to do so. Lots and lots of history. If ever interested drop me a line and I'll help you get started. It's fun to look and see the paths that each of us has taken with our lives. As it seems we all have a lot to be thankfull for. I won't make this as long as the others.

Thought it was about time I update this deal...I graduated from WMU in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Fashion Merchandising (no lie - a Bachelor of Science). Since Jenni Willis (Miller) took her sweet time graduating from Western, I decided to pack up the car and head to Dayton, OH...for maybe a year, 3 years later, I finally left!! I decided that Dayton was not the place for me and it was either move back to MI or go somewhere else. I chose 'Somewhere else'. I packed up the car again (and a u-haul trailer) in 1996 and headed south to Charlotte, NC. Best decision I ever made. I love it. I still make it North about once a year to see family and friends. I've been a Project Manager w/the same company since 1999. I spec and install Warehouse Management Systems throughout the country. Went from a fashion geek to a computer geek overnight! ;) I am still single, but only technically, as I finally found my Prince Charming. I'd reckon a ring and a weddin' are right around the corner...I also have 2 cats - as my friends say, "I'm one short of a spinster", good thing I found that Prince. ;) OK - so we need a 20th reunion that's not a picnic. A regular proper reunion, w/food and drink and dancing...I'll get working on that (I also plan all our company functions, so I know how to throw a party).....Until then....

We moved in with my fiance' in January of this year, down in Holly...boy, what a change from the lovely town of Lapeer. It is hard to get used to living down here, this is like city living!!! We are making a great adjustment though. We are selling the house and buying something bigger with more room for the kids. I would love to hear from any of you.

I left the Army after nine years and am now a medical officer in the Navy. Just got back from a lovely tour of Iraq, nice place to visit but don't ever work there. Too many noist neighbors. Got married a couple months before I left, getting used to married life all over again. No kids, haven't been together on the same continent long enough I guess. I've run into a few of our classmates here and there (Korea) and other Lapeer natives in other places(Ft Carson, CO and Fallujah, Iraq). Any chance of having a formal reunion any time soon? This Email address follows me where I go. I get back to MI as often as I can, so let me know.

Ahh who needs a reunion. Only 37 of us actually were bored enough to find this page anyways. My brother is not even on here. Still married, still have 3 kids, still have not seen anyone from school (not counting Cory) except Darryl Johnson who I see all the time. Still in the Coast Guard. Now stationed as a phone answerer in the Search and Rescue Operations Center in downtown Detroit. I get to be involved in helping people once in a while. Had better jobs but it gets interesting at times. I get to Lapeer once in a while to see my parents but I have to say, there isnt much there. Hope everyone is doing well, maybe we can get to have a reunion sometime and pretend that we remember each other. I might need glasses by then to read your name tags but I will try.

Hi everyone! I have been keeping busy since graduation. I attended U of M Flint for a year right after graduation. Then I got married in 1992 and had my first son, Brandon. I went back to school soon after, this time to Baker College in Flint. During that time I gave birth to Andrew. After six years, some part time, I earned my BBA in accounting. Currently I work for myself doing accounting and taxes from my house. The hours are great and I am here when the kids go to and come home from school. On the side, and for the fun of it, I am a part time substitute teacher in the Lapeer schools. I've even subbed for some of the teachers I had in school, as well as for fellow 1990 West graduates who are now teaching! I am living in Lapeer, still, this time out on Haines Rd. Don't be afraid to look me up!

Where has time gone! I moved to Florida in December of 1990, then to Orlando in 1993. I graduated from the University of Central Florida in 1995 with a BS in Business Administration, with a focus in Human Resources. I work for the City of Orlando as a Compensation Manager and have been there for over 3 years, not counting my 8 month internship there. I've been married for over 3 years to Brandon whom I met through a friend in January 1995 while working at Wal-Mart as the Department Manager of Pets (just a job to get me through school!). He owns a landscape company and loves board sports (wakeboarding, snowboarding, skateboarding). We do not have any kids, just our pets: Neva (6 yr/old Rottweiler), TC (5 yr/old male cat, he's used 4 of his lives already!) and Peaches (4 yr/old female cat). Glad to see everyone is doing so well!

It is alot of fun to read about the past 15 years. My husband Larry and I have been married just over 10 years now and have three children. Graham is 7, Veda is almost 4 and Dru is 13 months old. Out of all the choices we could have made for our children we decided to homeschool them. This was a decision that took me by surprise but one which I wouldn't trade for the world! My sister Ann homeschools as well. I see Amy (Little) Mackie ALL the time as we go to church together and our children play together. I also see Tanya Zager and Leslie Powers now and then. This life can be rocky at times but it is a good life.

Gee 12 years. Well just happened to run across this. I guess to update after high school I went and served in the army for three years. During that time got married to a girl from El Paso Tx. Her name is Yvonne. We now have three children Amber, William, and Alicia. I have a house in North Branch. I am working as a civilian for the Dept. of Defense. I work at the Armory in Lapeer. I have to keep my enlistment in the National Guard to keep my civilian job. No big deal. I am a Sergeant in the guard. Waiting on an E-6 slot to open up. Hope every one is in good health and spirits considering our present situation in the world. Hope to hear from some of you. If your ever in the neighborhood stop in and chat.

I can hardly believe it has been 12 years since graduation! I'm not even sure where to start! After graduation I went to Baker College-Flint for a degree in Travel/Tourism. I went to Baker College-Owosso for an interview after I got my degree to get some "real" interview experience and ended up working there for 7 years as an Administrative Assistant/Office Manager for the Admissions Department. I moved to Owosso in 1994. I met my husband, Mike, who is the Vice President for Finance at Baker-Owosso and we were married in 1996. He is a Corunna H.S. graduate and we have made our home in the Corunna community and LOVE it! I took a big promotion in 1999 to the Baker College System where I was working for all of the "head guys", but left in 2000 to be a stay-at-home Mom ~ a decision I have never regretted for a moment even though some thought I was crazy for passing up the career opportunity! God has blessed us with two beautiful boys: Tyson is 3 and Trent is 3 weeks! I would LOVE to hear from any old classmates to catch up. I, too, was disappointed that the reunion was canceled. Take care!

Hello! How time flys! I graduated from Saginaw Valley State University in December of 1995 with a BS in nursing. I married Jason Mackie (Lapeer East, 1991) in May of 1997. We live in Grand Blanc. I am a RN at Genesys REgional Medical Center. On May 12, 2000 we became the elated parents of a healthy baby boy, Gavin. I don't remeber what we used to do in our spare time, now we just watch our son in awe of the perfect little person he is becoming. I am looking forward to the reunion, I hope we have a good turn out.

I told myself that I would not put anything on this page until I had something to talk about, so here goes. In the last five years since West graduation, I have attended and graduated from Central Michigan University. I have an art degree (surprise, surprise) in 2D art, concentration in drawing. My minor was in theatre. (Another huge surprise.) The last two years I have worked for Disney (at Disney World), starting on the college program and turning seasonal help. The last year, I have also worked the door seasonally at Jellyrolls (which is a dueling piano bar on Disney's Boardwalk.) Currently, I am packing for the big move to Florida so I can work both places full-time. That's basically it, take care and I'll see you all at the reunions.

I graduated from Michigan State in 1995 with a BS in Chemical Engineering. I am living in L.A., California, where I am a Project Engineer for M&M Mars-Kal Kan Foods, Inc. In 1997, I married my college sweetheart, Marty. I graduated in 1999 with my MBA from Pepperdine University. Well, things have changed since my first posting. We relocated to Huntington Beach and enjoy living by the ocean. I do have to say that I miss seeing my family in Lapeer (just not in January!!!). Especially since on February 22, 2001, we had a beautiful baby boy named Taylor. He is a wonderful addition to our family and we are so in love with him. Each day is an exciting adventure. If ever in the Southern California area, look us up.

Hello everyone! 14 years...can you believe it? Graduated from Eastern Michigan University (Ypsilanti, MI) with a BA in Language & International Trade. I continued with the Spanish that I started at West and finished with a Business Spanish major/Marketing minor. College years treated me very well. Over the years I met many friends including international friends that I still keep in touch with today. Living in the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area was another positive aspect. Currently working for Panasonic Automotive Systems in Southfield, MI and live in Troy. In my spare/vacation time (never enough) I like to travel. The weekends are for catching up with friends over a few pints and forgetting about your worries. Maybe some day there will be a reunion...until then, I wish everyone continued success. Would love to hear from old friends...it certainly has been a while! E-mail me at maynardr111@hotmail.com

I was referred to this site by my wife (also a West grad). Seeing these names on this list reminds me of the simple times of life (although I would doubt any of us would have argued that at the time).I received my BS degree for Oakland University and will be returning soon for an MBA (amazing the dollar value for these certificates of higher education). My title is Senior Systems Engineer, but in truth I am just a geek with a fancy business card.I applaud all those who have achieved their dreams be it a profession or family (or both). For those that have not reached them, don't give up...never give up.

I am currently working for my brother-in-law's optometrist practice and am the Practice Manager. He has 9 offices that I do their accounting (among other things) for. I like it---it's nice to work close to home again! Additionally, I'm thankful every day to have such wonderful friends that continue to stay in touch (going on 17 plus years now). I hope all is well with everyone! TAKE CARE!!!

When I graduated from high school I continued on to College at Mott Community College. I received a degree in General Studies and Applied Science. I worked at Lapeer County Abstract for 3 years. I got married to Matt Polzin in 1996 and we built a house in Flint. I then worked at Cislo Title Company for 3 years and built a house in Grand Blanc. In 1999 we had a son-Garrett-he is now 2 1/2 and boy is he a lot of work. I quit my job and decided to stay home to take care of Garrett. I was just missing to much in his life. Garrett is enrolled in a PAT program, which has been a blast for both of us. On our spare time I spend it with my girlfriends and my sister-Jamie. The only people I really stay in contact with is Jamie (Bossenberger)Tindall, Paul Laidler, Amy Nelson. I was really bummed when our class reunion was cancelled. So if anyone wants to get together-lets try.

Happy New Year everyone. Nothing has changed since my first update. Other than I am almost another year older, my daughters are another year closer to the dreaded teenage years. Yes, I have several more years before that however, they are beginning. They are only 18 months apart and I will need all the sanity I can keep. It is bad at 2 and 4. What will it be like at 12. Good thing I stopped at 2. Any how, we ended 2000 on good times. We took our girls to Disney over Thanksgiving. That is the only reason I didn't send in for our class reunion. I was really looking forward to it. I've waited 10 years. Now I will get stuck going to my husbands. Yuck. But hey, maybe we can try agin. I am glad to be able to read how everyone is doing. I didn't have to get out the yearbook, i can remember you all. That is good because I can't remember yesterday. My excuse, kids. I hope everyone has started out with a great new year. Please contact me if you feel the urge. I am on the computer all of the time. My new best friend. Pretty sad, huh?

Hey everyone! Last time I checked in on this thing was before our ten year. I even went home for it. It was, well, let's just say it was postponed indefinitely. I'll give you a quick update. I'm not married. I have a dog. After a 2 year enlistment with the USAF in Seattle, I finally graduated from MSU in '97 with a Math degree (?@%*!). After I received my comission as an officer I was sent off to control the nation's nuclear arsenal Cheyenne WY for 4 years. I really didn't enjoy that. But it did land me in California where I got to launch rockets for a living. That, I enjoyed. Here's the twist...I am currently serving as a Liaison Officer in the US Embassy in Bogota, Colombia. Which is excellent since I am an avid coffee drinker. The Air Force flagged me as a spanish speaker long ago and are now cashing in. You never really appreciate the American Dollar until you live in country like this. I would also like to use this medium as a forum to dispell any misconceptions you may have about Colombia. Sorry. This country has suffered from about 45 years of civil unrest caused mostly by leftist guerrilla groups that claim to have political goals. Unfortunately, narcotrafficking is very lucrative and, incidentally, largely fueled by North American demand. The Colombian government, in partnership with the US, has made much progess in combating narco-terrorism. While it can be a dangerous place for a gringo, if you don't know where you are, the general population welcomes our presence. This is really a hidden treasure. Bogota, a city of about 7M people, is actually safer than New York or LA. I highly recommend a visit to this city. Just don't go wandering through the jungle at night with a notepad, a flashlight, and a camera crew. I finally finished the Master's degree (Aerospace Eng). I am really planning on exiting the Air Force this summer so I can use the degree. I know, that's what I said last time. No. Really. I have a job lined up and everything! I'll be working for a technical consulting company doing launch coordination on the west coast. Anyway, sorry about the mini-lecture above. I haven't really kept in touch with anyone. But if you want to re-establish contact, drop me a line.

Well to bring everyone up to speed- I married in 1986 to Robin Stroup, we had two children, Carrie and Robert. Then I got divorced in 1991, and had my daughter Amanda Lee with Elmer Stamm Jr. I have spent the last 13 years as a single mom and working as a Medical Insurance Biller for the Chief of Neurology, Dr. Karim Fram. My daughter Carrie will graduate this year from Lapeer West ,and her brother Rob in 2006. Amanda will follow in 2009. All attend Lapeer West, Although Robert is living with his dad now in Attica. This last year I have made several changes in my life, mostly because of my father dieing from Lung Cancer at 60, he taught me not to waste time-you never have enough of it. I never went to any of the reunions but will see you at the 20th for sure. I ride my motorcycle and horse in my spare time. This summer I quite my job to spend it with the kids, next year Carrie will be off to college and it will be just me and Amanda. All of you with little children, enjoy, it is over before you know it. I am getting ready for massage classes here in Lapeer at HEC,I am sure it will be a more satisfactory carrer than Medical Billing was, and I look forward to doing something new. If you want to e-mail me you can do so at teresa91167@charter.net My Brother Paul was suppose to graduate with our class but didn't. He is doing fine, married with 2 beautiful children Quade 9 and Taylor 11 and a wonderful wife of 13 years, Angie. They live in North Branch, and Paul works in Troy at MSP.

After high school I joined the U.S. Navy. I've been in the Navy for over ten years now as an aviation mech. I've been living in Virginia for most of that time. I just got married this year to my beautiful wife, Melissa. We have two children, Christopher, and Deanna. I'm getting ready to leave on my fourth six-month cruise on an aircraft carrier which is why I won't be attending the reunion, but hey, getting to see Australia, Hawaii, Singapore, and North Island is well worth it.

Other than missing all my old school buddies and teachers, I am doing just fine. Sister came to visit me today, Leanne, boy has she came along way. I am so proud of her, if you know her check out her in the '95 Alumni. I have been married for almost 5 years now, no kids. Just bought my home last Oct. 98 in Mt. Morris. Came very close to death last year. Sure made me think of the important things in life, really quick like. Had a bleeding ulcer in my stomach the size of a quarter on a main artery. I did however find out what has been my problem with my weight all these years, I had a bad thyroid, which was barely producing whatever it prodouces. Topped 500pds, not down to 380 and dropping, feeling a lot better. On a bad note though, while in the hospital I slipped into a coma for 4 days, upon waking up I had no use of my right arm, and it was not a stroke. Someone left a rubber band noose, that thing to get your vains to pop up, around my arm and forgot about it, cutting my ulnar nerve. I am managing. Other than that I am doing great. I don't take life for granted no more, never should have! Visit me website design business at http://www.prevo.net

I enjoy basketweaving and petting my 14 cats. On weekends I drink tea and play scrabble with the local librarians. The highlight of my week is jeans day at work. Sometimes I splurge and buy myself a bag of Twizzlers. This doesn't look like a dating message board...

One dog, a Rotweiller named Max. We hope to have kids in the near future. Our home is only 1/2 mile from a lake, so we bought a boat last summer and love being out on the water.

Hello all, Well, life got interesting after Highschool. I started by going to Wayne State in Detroit majoring in Theater. However, it just didn't feel right at the time. SO, silly me, I joined the Air Force. I spent time there as an aerospace propulsion spec. (fancy term for an engine mechanic on Jet type aircraft) I was able to see much of the country (and a little of the world) during my four years. My last base was in Alaska, and from there I moved (following a girl) to Eugene Oregon. Well, despite the demise of the relationship that got me here, it is in Eugene that I currently remain. I went back to college, majored in Journalism. Even won an award from the Oregon Newspaper Assoc. for some columns I had written. Needless to say, I was able to use a spellcheck. *grin* During that time I also got married, and had a child. So, since journalism was fun, but lacking in the financial department, I moved on to a Computer Science major. After only about a term of doing the student thing (12+ credits) and working 3 other jobs to bring in income, I decided to give it all up and dive headfirst into the wonderful world of Technical Support. Essentially I was offered a job that paid more than my other three put together, along with the ability to get some certifications and possibly a degree...so I couldn't pass it up to continue going to school. Well, now (a little over 3 years later) I still work here at Symantec. However I do a different sort of support now. I acuatlly have my very own business cards and everything. They call me a "Sr. Technical Account Manager." Essentially just another phone monkey but with a whole lot more to do, and a penciant for kissing a bit of butt. *grin* I basically support a number of Symantec's larger accounts in the technical capacity. This however, has allowed me to have all the training I've wanted. CNE, CNA, MCSE, CISCO, AS400, not to mention the security and network administration stuff. I love it (minus the viruses and the stress anyway). Well beyond that, I have since had an additional child and kept the same wife. Looking forward to seeing some of you during at least one of the many reunions I'm sure our class will have. Feel free to kick me out an email.

Hello everyone. Currently I reside in the beautiful city of Provo, Utah with my ever-beautiful wife Sandy (formerly of Sandy Pilly fame in the class of '93, but not yet listed on this site). We were married in June of 97 and lived in Canton, Michigan for two years where I worked as an assistant engineer for a recording studio called Studio A Recording. We moved out to Utah in June of 99. I have started a band with some very creative musicians I met. Our name is "Gift Anon" and we play a mellow but intense mixture of emo-style underground rock. If you like Sunny Day Real Estate, Mineral, or Jimmy Eat World, that's us. :) You can check out our web site with the link below. During the day I do tech support for a software company called Avirt. I love computers (almost as much as music) and will be taking the A+ computer certification tests in January of 2001. I am also studying computer programming. Hmmm... maybe someone should have made me go to college... Later.

He is a local business owner here in Lansing, so it seems as Lansing will be where I call home. My degree was in nursing. I have spent most of my 7+ years in the Coronary Intensive Care Unit, and I am currently back there. I am working on my Masters'at State with my goal to be a nurse practitioner. I have two children. My boy is four, and my little girl is three. They also go to MSU... preschool that is!!! I wish you all a happy and healthy life!!

Well all, I know I didn't exactly get to walk down the graduation aisle with you but I did spend a lot of my timein that school as well as years at junior high and elementary school with some of you. As you may have knownI moved to Colorado half way through my junior year and graduated high school there. I met the love of my lifein 1993 and we had a daughter then got married which we have been for the last 7 years and together for about 10.We have two sons also now. Our daughter Megan is 8 1/2, Marcus 6 1/2, and Matthew is 5. They are my life and I have pretty much been a stay at home mom the whole time. We live in Graham Washington on 5 1/2 acres and have a beautiful view of Mt. Rainier. I have enjoyed my life and regretted past mistakes but grew up into a fine individual. Heck, I have been a girl scout leader going on 4 years now, I bet most of you your jaws are dropping.I am no longer the skinny minny I use to be either just average so I no longer can be called "chicken legs" I believe Scott Bradshaw and Marc Nagy made that one up.I have enjoyed reading all of you bio's and if anyone out there wants to say hi, email me atmelissasherman@rainierconnect.com

Hello everyone. I enjoyed reading the updates on all of you!! So good to hear that life is going well. I actually read my brothers entry, can I tell you how funny that was. :) I don't have any really cool news or updates...I live in Atlanta, Georgia and manage an Accounting firm. I have no husband or kids to speak of (although, I did have a husband at one point, but we won't get into that. :) ) I have a great cat and friends that keep life interesting. I am coming up for the reunion and I hope to catch up with all of you. I am actually driving up (ugg) and going to Big Rapids for Thanksgiving, and then heading to good ole' Lapeer to meet up with Melanie Keeley and go to the 10 yr...yikes. Can't believe it!!! Where did the time go? I still keep in touch with Melissa Moeser (she is not attending the reunion), and I haven't been back home since the five year. So, I am excited to see what's changed and how we have all changed. I think of many of you often, and wish I knew where you were...lot's of great memories of days gone by. Take care one and all and I will see you in 2 months. :) Sincerely, "Ditto". If you want to get in touch with me, my email is: joannakkaye@hotmail.com.

Hello everyone, it sounds like everyone's doing great. After graduating I basically worked my way through school. I went to several community colleges(Due to job changes-I was working for Wal-Mart as the TLE manager and then Cadillac as a Service Rep.-sucked)and finished at Macomb Community college. After that I became a police officer for a suburb of Detroit....this was a great job, but there is always a down fall....the money left something to be desired. Approx. 2yrs ago I got into the IBEW local 58(International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers)and they sent me back to school. I am currently working through a 5yr. program with them to become an Inside Wireman. Pretty boring....I have a house in the city of Eastpointe(on the border with St. Clare Shores). I got married in 1999. My wifes name is Tracie. We don't have any kids yet...still practicing. Well I guess that sort of sums it up. CAN YOU BELIVE WE ARE APPROACHING 30. WE ARE GETTING OLD...hope to see you all soon.

Hey everyone. I currenlty moved back to Michigan after teaching for a year in Fort Myers, Florida. I missed my family and came back to fix my realtionship that had been going for years...I guess it was "too little, too late". We are no longer together. I recenlty moved into Charter Oaks in Davison, I'm working for a summer academic program for Flint Schools, and going through interviews; please think positively for me, teaching jobs are few and far between up here. Florida was great, and I plan to move back later in life. It is beautiful, although it was not home. I'm single and living alone for the first time ever, it's nice, but an adjustment to say the least. I'm about 1/3 of the way through my Master's Degree, through University of Phoenix--Online. It's nice not to have to sit in class, I'm home watching the Pistons play, while I should be doing homework...see where the computer gets me. Keep in touch! Melissa melissa_crafton@hotmail.com

After graduating I went of to a community college in Kalamazoo but ended up having too much fun and not getting enough studying done. After a year I moved back in with my parents which I didn't exactly enjoy and after another year I got my own apartment in Lapeer where I lived for six years untill a freind flew me down to Florida. All of a sudden I found myself with a new job and having to room with my freind. I'm hoping to fly up for the reunion especially since I missed the 5 year. I welcome E - mail from anyone who wants to contact me. My Email address is jesse@ekosten.dynip.com

I'm glad to hear that everyone is doing well. I recently moved back to Michigan from Sacramento, California. Currently I am living in Fenton and running a mortgage company in Davison. I was supposed to start back to school in August, but my residency was revoked (due to living in Cali)....So I am starting back up again in May. I'll be attending University Of Michigan Flint. I am hoping to finally finish my degrees in education and foreign languages. I don't have any children, but I do have an extremely spoiled cat named Spock. His ears were bigger than his head when he was a kitten. I love to get email so feel free to email or IM me at eyezuvice@aol.com. I hope to see you all soon.

It is great to hear everyone is doing so well. I graduated from uofm flint in 1997 with my BSN in nursing. I worked at several hospitals in Labor and Delivery including Butterworth (spectrum health) in Grand Rapids, and lastly at the University of Michigan. I worked for about 5 years as an RN and have been attending graduate school at UofM Ann Arbor and will be graduating in April with my Masters degree in Nursing. I will be a Certified Nurse Midwife, no I don't do deliveries at home, I will be practicing in Lapeer with Lisa Allen D.O. and will be doing deliveries at Lapeer Regional Hospital. I also was married in May of 2001, my husband is from Lapeer and actually went to East! We are building our first house in Lapeer and hope to be in by september. I would love to hear updates on how everyone is doing, you can email me at mmmurray@umich.edu

Things have been busy since high school but are finally setteling down. I went to a small private school in Tenessee for 2 1/2 years then moved back to Michigan and finished my BS at U of M-Flint. Then I began working on my masters at WSU but decided to open a personal training business in West Bloomfield. That went very well for 3-4 years but who want to be lifting weights for a living when they are older? Anyway, I recently graduated from the physician assistant program at UD-Mercy with my masters. I was married in September to a wonderful man I met in Cadillac, of all places, while skiing a few years ago. He is a firefighter/paramedic for Garden City where we both now live. We love scuba diving, rock climbing, skiing, and TRAVELING:). I can't wait to see you all at the reunion.

Howdy everybody! Well, let's see - I graduated from Baker in 1997 and got a job at McLaren Hospital in Flint. I then picked up and moved to Florida for a while, but needed to come home and wrap some things up. I got my job back at the hospital doing medical transcription and now that is my means to an end as I have about a year left at U of M before I get my teaching degree (Spanish, Math). I bought a house in Flint to cash out on when I move back to Florida and teach. Zach, my son, is now 10 and will turn 11 this year. He's cute and smart, but damn spoiled by everybody! Anywho, sounds like everybody is fairing well. I suppose I'm the only loser who hasn't been married, but I can say that I have been engaged, oh say in the range of five times - just can't seem to get it right - whelp - maybe my guy is waiting in the sunshine state. Has anybody heard about arrangements for the reunion? e-mail me! Tampalightning@aol.com

Just for the fun of it. I have an 18 mo. old son named Sebastian Amadeus. He's adorable. Also am an amateur astrologer. I guess that is about it. Hope everyone is having a groovy time.

I am writing this message to clear the record. I did not enter the previous record for myself and really do not appreciate the fact that someone would do something like that. Whoever made up that information about me has obviously not matured any since we graduated from high school. I graduated from U of M - Flint with a Biochemistry degree and work at General Motors as a Process Engineer. I am very happily married to someone I met in college (not to Kim)and have two sons who are 3 yrs. old and 4 mos. old.

I have spent several years wandering around the US. I have lived in Virginia, Wisconsin, Arizona, and spent a summer being a beach bum in New Jersey. Seems crazy, I know. I don't trust anyone who never questions their sanity. Along the way I almost was married, but dodged a bullet on that one. Some people just don't belong together. Anyway, I currently reside in Royal Oak, MI. I was unceremoniously dumped into the auto industry when I returned to Michigan. It's alright, but I am recovering. I am currently working on an MBA while working for an auto supplier. Royal Oak is full of fun people, so I always have something to do. ryanb809@yahoo.com

What did you think of the reunion? I had a great time! I was worried that joining the two schools would blow up in our face but it turned out to be great! These days I'm preparing for change again! My company is closed. My partner hit the road and said time for retirement and I didn't want to do it by myself. So now I'm a teacher at Fenton Montessori and in the fall I will be helping to start a new school close to Sandusky. Still live in Fenton... but we may be moving. Can't believe 30 is approaching... Is anybody else 29 and holding? Get in touch with me!

Hi everyone! Time for an update. Many things have changed for us in the last four years. I am married to Dan Rakowski and we have four children. Jacob(7) nonverbal with autism, Lauren (6) high IQ with Asperger's Syndrome (form of autism), Alyssa(4) doing fine, and Alex(5 months) also doing fine. We still live in Sterling Heights. The last four years have been filled with many forms of therapy for our kids and just trying to keep up with everyday life. I also have spent the last year homeschooling my oldest daughter until she was ready to enter school with special help. We are currently in the process of getting that done, it takes forever. So for now I am still teacher and mom, it has been wonderful to see her do so well academically. Because of all the excitement in our lives :) we missed the last reunion, but hope to make the next one. I had gotten back in touch with a few of you, but we then changed our email and all of my info was lost, so if you read this I would love to hear from you again. My email is djrakowski@sbcglobal.net. Inspite of all that we have been thru, life is very good. I have the most amazing kids! They have really taught my husband and I what is important in life. :) We have also recently converted to the Catholic faith, and our kids are adjusting very well. Anyone with kids with autism would understand this. :) You have to sit still and quiet for an hour, not easy for any kid, let alone kids like mine. :) We have been truly blessed!

Hi everyone!! Lets see, life is interesting? We have been out of school 9 years and I have been married 9 years. I married Matt Foster (he graduated in 1990 from West). I have 2 boys. Alex is 9 and is going in to 4th grade. He is awesome and gets a lot out of life. Ethan is 6. He is my biggest task in life as he is diagnosed autistic(I encourage you all to familiarize yourselves with Autism as it is becoming very widespread and there is not a lot of public awareness about Autism.). As far as what I've been doing.... I went to school at LCC and MSU. I have an LPN. I decided nursing is not for me although going to school was great (I watched open heart surgery from 2 feet above the patient). I am currently looking in to Law, being a Physicians assistant as well as Physical therapy. Any way I go will take time and effort. My family and I live in Davison, MI. We've been here for almost three years. Matt works at Delphi ten minutes down the road and I am home. We do a lot of home schooling activities with Ethan. I hope to see you all at our ten year reunion. The planning for this reunion is gearing up so I would appreciate all current addresses. Hope you are all well.

It has been so much fun to read about everyone and their successes in life. I love to see what everyone is doing. I got married a year out of high school and now have 4 children-Tyler-7, Bailey-5, Chase-3 1/2, and Brinley-11 months. Life definitely did not take me where I thought it would. I have not finished school yet, as most of you have, but I still plan to some time down the road when I can get all my rugrats in school. I have been blessed to be able to stay home with my kids and love doing so-although the idea of going to work some days is much more appealing. I would love to hear from anyone. My email is toniabonia@hotmail.com.

Class of 1992? Not really. I should have graduated in 1992 but it is difficult to ammass any credits when you mother drops you off at the front door and you make a mad dash out the back. Anyway, I learned my lesson and am now obtaining an illustrious education at the very humble Mott Community College. It is a far cry from Princton, however I still draw breath, so there is still a very faint glimmer of hope. I am presently seeking a Associates degree in Communications Technology, which in my case, is merely another name for web publishing and design. As most of you know, I was married in 1991 to Todd Wesley Wood, who turned out to be a great catch :). We now live in Flint with our two children: Lindsey, age 6, and Nicholas(Wicky), age 3. They are lots of fun, but keep me very, very, busy.Well, this might come as quite a shock to those of you who knew me way back when, but I am actually a devoted Christian now. No, I'm not joking and you did read that right. I have even taught childrens church and Sunday school, though I have had to put such endeavors on hold till graduation. Todd and I spend alot of our time working on our website. www.oldarcadia.com It hosts an assortment of Elizabethan Poets and playwrights and debates on Shakespearean authorship. I am real big on Elizabethan Poetry now and my favorite poet is Sir Philip Sidney. If you get a chance, check out the site and sign the guestbook. I would be glad to hear from you.

Hello everyone. It has been along time, then again I really never kept in touch with anyone.After school I moved to Port Huron and went to St. Clair community college and majored in early childhood developmentI got burned out on that and left college. I got married in 94 and we stayed in Port Huron and had a daughter in 1995.After that we moved back to Lapeer and my husband finished his nursing degree. We moved a couple more times and then settled back in Lapeer and bought a house off Bronson Lake Rd. We had another baby in 1997 a little boy. I am a stay at home mom however, I am currently attending Mott for nursing. Although I am not going to go back to work until my son is in school full time which will be a couple years yet. I am looking forward to our reunion this time. I was pregnant with my son at our 5 year reunion and didn't stay long because I was uncomfortable. Well, I guess that's all my life is pretty uneventful. God Bless!

Greetings! Moved to Big Rapids in fall of 92, got a degree from Ferris and stayed up here, imagine that. This town is smaller than Lapeer and not too busy yet, kind of nice. Bought house last year, got County Road Commission job 3 years ago. Used to see Lee Newton occaisionally but I believe he has moved from this bustling metropolis. Have no wife yet nor do I have any complaints, life is good. Good snowmobiling in winter and laid back summers are hard to beat! Looking forward to the big 10 year reunion , can't believe it's been that long, would like to hear from some of you:NDK508@HOTMAIL.COM See Ya!

Hopefully I still have time to coach pee-wee cheerleading? Anyway that's my life update. I can't wait to see everyone in August. It will be so great.

Well after high school I attended CMU and attained a B.S. in geography/earth science with a minor in biology in 1997. I worked as a retail manager for a short while (yuk). I soon grew bored and moved the show to Denver. The jobs still stunk but my office overlooked Rocky Mountain National Park so it wasn't all bad. I worked as a stock trader for about a year in Colorado and enjoyed playing in the mountains in my free time. I received a job offer back in Michigan in 1999 so I packed up the goods and moved back. I lived in Romeo for a year and worked for E.I. DuPont doing research and development on vehicle paint. I've been working on a special project for Ford for the last year to create the new paint for the 2002 T-bird. I've since moved back to Lapeer due to location. I got married last summer to my wife Amy. She is a teacher in Imlay City and I work in Troy, I think she has the better end of the drive. My plan for the near future is simply to buy a house in september in Metamora and enjoy life.

There is only one thing more frightening than Brett having children, and that is me married. It's finally happened. Last November my girlfriend of 3 years finally proposed to me. I was, like, so excited.. i jumped up and down and cried and of course said "yes"... So in January she and I and a select group of family members (only the "cool" ones) went to Las Vegas where we gambled and got married. This spring we'll move to Southern Illinois, where we'll become Salukis, me in Automotive Technology, her in Accounting. Better late than never, tho, i always say. Drop me a line, if you care. Update... Still married, now with a beautiful 5 month old daughter, Emma. I graduated from SIU (GO SALUKIS!) and am now employed by General Motors as a service engineer. I live in Washington Twp MI and work at the Tech Center in Warren. That's about it.

Hey yall....That's right, I am a southerner now. After school I attended Lake State for 5 years and graduated with a degree in geology. After all that fun in the fun I went to Oklahoma State where I taugh geology labs while working on my master's degree. I graduated from OSU in May of 99. From there I moved to Houston, TX where I currently reside. I work for an independent oil and gas company as a development geologist, I handle some properties in the Gulf of Mexico. It is a very interesting job and I actually enjoy flying out to work on the rigs every once and a while. I can't say that I enjoy Houston's traffic but its a pretty fun city and there is always something to do. I play on a couple of different area sport teams (golf, softball, and ice hockey). I saw Lisa McAley over Thanksgiving and she told me about this website so I thought I would check it out. I enjoyed reading everyone's bio's and I hope to make some contacts with old friends. Take care and if anyone would like to email: mwobyd_osu@hotmail.com.

Not much activity on our class's page! I was married in 1998 to Mollie, she's a musician like me. She has been the band director at Clare Public Schools for 4 years. I graduated the Michigan College of Optometry in 2000 (after 4 years of graduate school and 4 years of undergrad before that)and purchased a practice in Bay City later that year. I've now been there for 3.5 years. In that time, we've grown considerably and even added another doctor. Check out our website at www.centervisionclinic.com.Mollie and I had our first and so far only baby in March 2003. Her name is Anika Grace. She's a lot of fun to have around and definitely makes like interesting. We're not sleeping as much as before!We live in Sanford - about 8 miles northwest of Midland. This makes both work commutes reasonable.In my spare time, I like to be outside, work in the yard or work on my office buildings. Always something to be done in the maintenance and repair area.I still play the saxophone. This Saturday, I'm putting on a benefit concert at the State Theatre in Bay City. My first major performance in about 5 years, will be interesting to see how it goes. Hopefully it is well-attended. You can see the official promo poster at www.centervisionclinic.com - I even got Bruce Hornsby to say something for it.Hope everyone is experiencing success personally and professionally. Best wishes to all!

I've been in the US Navy now for 9 years. I'm currently stationed in San Diego, CA onboard the USS Nimitz, an aircraft carrier. I am an "Information Systems Technician 2nd class" which basically meansI'm a super geek. In a nutshell, I'm responsible for computer hardware repair/maintenance andnetwork administration. I've also been stationed on 2 other ships, the USS Halsey and theUSNS Pecos, and on shore duty on the island of Guam and in London, England. Some of the places I'vebeen to include: Hawaii, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, the Persian Gulf, Republic of Ireland,Whales, and Tijuana and Mazatlan, Mexico (I wish I would have paid attention in Mrs. Lemiux'sSpanish class now). I'm single and no kids. I would like to hear from any/everyone, and you cane-mail me at johnm197@hotmail.com. Also, if anyone has heard from/seen my cousin Chris Long(Yes, he graduated with us if you don't remember him), let me know!

I don't even know where to start. Yes I was married to Albert Smith, class of 91, he joined the Army, we moved to Texas and then Germany. I came home in 95 and we got a divorce, YES!!!! Bigest mistake of my life. I didn't get a chance to go to college but I haven't done too bad. Now onto better things, I've had a few odd and end jobs and then got into GM in 98 and then I was one of the first layoffs in 2000. I found another job in Clarkston and then got laid off from that one b/c of the 911. I married in July of 2001 to Kevin. He had 2 kids from a previous realtionship and now we have one that is almost a year. She is so cute. This is the only one I'm having since Kevin is 10yrs. older then me. Since my last layoff I have been home. At times it is trying buy I'm enjoying it. I just finished taking classes to sell real estate, now all I have to do is take the government exam. Until next time folks.....

I spent three years at Western working toward a Political Science degree and then realized that although I enjoyed the subject, I had no desire to do anything remotely political for a living. I took some time off and decided that what I really want to do is teach elementary school. So I am currently attending Grand Rapids Community College and Ferris - Grand Rapids. I'm going to start dual enrollment in the fall. I am majoring in elementary education with minors in math and science. I work full time at Alticor (formerly known as Amway) in the Legal Division as an Archive Clerk/Law Librarian. Jonathan and I were married on 7/7/00 and we just bought a nice house last summer. We have three cats and a dog which is enough for now! Looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion, summer 2004!

Hi there! I have lived in Santa Cruz, CA since 1996 it is 10 min from the ocean and beautiful. I met my wonderful husband, Trevor in 1998 and got married in 1999. I am a Financial Associate at First Horizon Home Loans and my husband works at Apple. We traveled to Japan last year and are off to Italy this year. The pictures from Japan are posted on our homepage, http://homepage.mac.com/tnomi/ We are enjoying our time before children and plan on starting our family this year. Shortly after high school I commited my life to Christ and give Him all the glory for what He has done in my life. We are extremely blessed and thankful for everything. If anyone visits the Bay area let me know, its very close to Santa Cruz. Email me if you would like. I'm glad to hear everyone is doing so well! Take Care!

Ten years, who can believe it has been that long. Well, I stayed in Michigan for a year after graduation but finally escaped (if you can call it that) to the south where I enrolled at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Not able to afford to finish, I relocated after a year to Orlando, FL where I spent nearly 5 years working for Walt Disney. Trust me, it is not nearly as glamorous as it sounds. During this time I was also in the Army Reserves and then later the Coast Guard Reserve. Three years ago I finally made it back to school when I enrolled full-time at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL where I am persuing a degree in linguistics. Currently I am fluent in French and German, can read some Spanish and Italian (thanks to speaking French) and am learning Russian. Last year I spent time in Berlin and I will leave around the begining of July to finish my last semester at the University of Trier in Trier, Germany. I currently work as a Web Designer for Candace Crowe Design out of Orlando. It has been forever and a year since last I spoke with anyone from West. Actually, I believe the official date was graduation, 1993. If anyone has information about the 10 year reunion, please drop me an email. I would love to attend.

I am a Validation Engineer now at Pfizer and am blessedly happy. I never married (thank the Goddess for that) but still, life is sweet. I was back in good ol' Lapeer this past Christmas and wow! The changes and the sheer number of people and traffic in comparisons to the memories I have of high school. Amazing... Be well, all...

Hi Everyone - wow, it's been almost 10 years since we've graduated. Boy does life happen fast. Well, as for me: after high school I went to college and graduated from Oakland University in 1997 w/ a business degree in Management Information Systems; Got married to Brian Arnold (class of 1990) in 1998 - yes, it's the SAME Brian I dated while attending West ;o). Hope everyone is doing good. Keep in touch. Gees, it's been over 2 years since I visited this site... I had to think really hard what the heck my username and password was =o) ... I gradutated Oakland University again (2004) but this time with a Masters in Business Administration. Still working at DaimlerChrysler (been there 8 years now - wow!)... Turned 30 this year (much like everyone else here) - don't really see it as catastrophic; but have noticed that I no longer get called "Miss" when someone's trying to get my attention and rarely get carded - so that's a bit disheartening (LOL) Anywho - take care everyone... catch ya in a few more years.

Hello everyone! I was amazed at reading everyone's stories on the roads that life has taken them. They were so great to read. After high school I attended Baker College eventually receiving my Bachelor Degree in Business Admin. I started working at Baker College in Owosso in the Counseling Dept. It was great, but things changed direction for me and I am now the Assistant Registrar for Baker College Center for Graduate Studies/Baker College Online. I will be starting my Master's Degree in January. I live in Owosso and I am getting married October 26, 2002. It is so good to see that everyone is doing well. Hope to hear from some of you soon!!

I am still around too. Been a long time, since I have even heard of a lot of the names registered. I keep in touch(kinda) mainly with Jack Howay, Brian Newman, and Todd Walker. I went to State for five years trying my best to learn my trade, BS Electrical Eng, all the while struggling to pick up the books. I managed somehow and started working for a semiconductor company, STMicroelectronics. I enjoy my job a lot, and I get to travel quite a bit. I and am living in London currently since April 2000. It's a better place to visit! Jack came once as he said. I spent quite a bit of time in South Russia, as a student and on vacation revisiting my host family and friends, and eventually met my wife there, Irina(married Jan 2001). We both live in London now, and hopefully will be back in the States in April 2003. Write if you get the chance. It would be great to hear from you.

Hi everyone. Anyone who remembers me knows I was no star athlete in high school but I finally found my calling in college. I played water polo for Michigan State for 3 years. My junior year we were ranked 8th in the nation and went to the NCAA tournament in California. I graduated in 1997 with a teaching degree and minors in Spanish and Environmental Science. Then, I moved to Texas and taught for 3 years in Houston. During my last year teaching, I started volunteering nights with a local fire department where I met my husband. We worked a couple big fires and EMS calls together and then he got on with the Houston Fire Department in 2001. That year we got married, I quit teaching to try to get in to EMS full time and wound up going to work for an environmental company instead. March 11, we celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary and I found out I'm pregnant. So now I'm taking a break from the fire department for a while and we getting ready for our first baby, due November 2002.

Hi. After high school I went to Mott for 2 associates in Culinary Arts and Foodservice Management. I married Mike Garcia('92)and we have 2 boys, Joey, 5, and Nick, 3.We live in Davison. For 4 years I was Chef at Sugarbush Golf Club, with my right hand woman Valerie Cross(now Enunchi). We catered some weddings and rehearsals of former classmates and West alumni.But Valerie graduated to become a teacher and the IMA sold my golf course, so I cheffed a year at a nursing home(yawn).Then I worked for Creative Catering for a year. Now I am at Genesys Athletic Club and Banquet Center, working for Blue Collar Gourmet(Bubba's, Redwood Lodge, etc.),as manager of the cafe'.It sounds like I move too much, but that is the way this industry is. Plus I have my priorities straight. I took 4 mos. off between the last two jobs and 3 mos. off between the previous 2. I took a lesser position so I can have Tuesdays off for Nicky's Preschool, a cooperative. Mike has been at Baxter Pharmaceuticals in Rochester for 6 years.

I'm going to Brazil in December for a month to hang out with my friend Carina. Email me sometime, it will be good to hear from y'all. Peace, Love, and Humptyness.03/25/2002- I had a great time in Brazil. The beaches, the thongs, the boobies everywhere...awesome. I went hiking for 5 days (Dec. 28th - Jan. 1) in a rainforest called Chapada Dimentina in a town called Lencois. Beautiful waterfalls, and scenic mountains, 85 degrees and the river water was a rust color from the minerals. While I was there I took the PADI open water scuba certification. I almost drowned during one of the underwater tests where I had to remove my mask at 40'. I wigged out a little, but luckily I was able to control my breathing. Anyway, email me and say hi sometime. Later.05/04/04 - Working for a material handling company in Brighton (2/98) as a Mechanical Engineer. Living with my girlfriend and puppy in Metamora. I bought a house in Nov. 01 and have been updating it every since. It will never end. I'm still racing harescrambles -->currently sitting 2nd. We went to the Bahamas last spring, it sucked. I won't go back. We're going to Belize in the fall, can't wait. Shoot me an email sometime. REMEMBER: Don't sweat the petty, pet the sweaty. Peace, love and humptyness.

Hi! Thought I would update this thing. First, a bit of history, I graduated from U of M in '98 with my Bachelor degree in Accounting. I started out working in public accounting at Ernst & Young down in Detroit. I was travelling a lot and not even to cool places (small towns just outside of Toledo were popular audit destinations). I burned out on that pretty quickly so I took a corporate accounting position at Frank's Nursery and stayed there for four years. Currently I work as an accountant for Guardian Industries. It's a great job. I got married in September 2000 and divorced in July 2003. We didn't have any kids, only the dog which he got "custody" of. Right now I'm living solo in Auburn Hills. Love to hear from ya, drop me an email. See you at the reunion.

I went to Spring Arbor College for 2 1/2 years. Then transfered to U-of-M Flint for about a year or so. I got married in October of 1997 to Terry Carr (class of 1987). Shortly after getting married I quit going to school because I still wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I have a 3 year old boy named Nathan, and a baby girl named Maria. I have traveled a little out of the sates sense graduating. I have been to Belize, Guatemala, Jamacia, Mexico, Germany, and France. My family and I live in Columbiaville. I stay at home right now and am taking care of my kids. Maybe someday I will go back to school, who knows? Right now I am happily married and I am content staying at home, but looking forward until they are in school :) My husband and I along with a friend of ours bought an online game store in July of 2002. We sell board and card games online. Check us out at www.fairplaygames.com or www.newworldgames.com. It is always interesting to look on this website and see what everyone is doing.

I spent 2 years training in the Navy followed by 6 and 1/2 years of constant work onboard the fast attack submarine USS Albany, SSN-753. I did four deployements and saw some interesting places overseas. I somehow managed to find time to meet and fall in love with my wife. We have been married almost 3 years now. In May of 2002 I decided it was enough, and left the Navy after 8 and a half years. Now I am a Nuclear Engineer at Norfolk Naval Shipyard. Jennifer and I live in Chesapeake, VA and we are expecting our first born in November. It doesn't look like we will make it to the reunion, but if anyone wants to e-mail me, it be great to hear from you. While i was in the Navy, it was impossible to keep up with anyone I knew.

Hello to all! After H.S. graduation I attended Central Michigan University where I earned a Bachelor of Music Education degree with a major in instrumental music and a minor in choral music. My goal was to move a little further away from my home town after college, but fate has a way of leading you in the most unexpected directions. I landed a job as a middle school music and beginning band teacher in North Branch. My husband, whom I met at college, is the director of bands in Mayville. So we did the only logical thing, we bought a house in Lapeer. This ended up being a very good thing because now my parents are able to watch our new son, Joshua Daniel (5 months), during the day. He is the sunshine of our life! Glad to hear so many of you are doing well. I am looking forward to our next reunion.

Hello, everyone! I'm sorry that I missed the 20yr. reunion--it would have been great to see everyone again. Twenty-three years since we attended West! Hard to believe. The year following graduation I married Brian Mikulski, whom I dated while in high school. Two years later we divorced. I attended Mott Community College and then St. Joseph Hospital in Flint. I acquired my degree in Radiologic Technology and moved to Petoskey, MI, for 3-1/2yrs. I worked as a tech for ~10 years & then retired from the field. I have been living in beautiful Charleston, SC, for the past 16yrs. and loving it. I have worked as a radiology tech, a bartender, a paralegal and have been working as an office administrator for a construction firm for the past 5yrs. I never remarried or had any children. I do have a dog & a cat whom I consider to be the cutest and best kids a girl could ever ask for. I welcome any e-mails from fellow classmates (c.loll@comcast.net). I look forward to hearing from you!

Hello Everyone. So much has happened since high school. After school I started at U of M Flint in Mass Communications. You may have heard me on WINGS 103.1 (RIP) for a while and for that I apologize, I never intended to be a DJ, it just sort of fell on me. I married Eric in 1997 and we moved to Montgomery Alabama to finish our degrees at Auburn University at Montgomery (War Eagle!) and get a change of scenery. Guess what? I'm no southern girl, so we moved back to MI to Ann Arbor. I am currently working in Marketing & Public Relations for a civil engineering firm. Our daughter, Ramona, was born in Ocotober of '02 and she is a genius. I love weddings, dogs, art, cheap champagne, lots of conversation and a good decaf skim vanilla latte when I get the chance. I can't believe how big Lapeer has gotten!

Hi everyone! It's hard to believe that it has been 10 years! Well, I graduated from college with a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. In 1994, I married Robert Martin and we are still together. We have an adorable and very unique 2 year old son. Robert joined the army shortly after high school and so far is making a career of it. I've pretty much spent the last ten years following him around. Currently we live in Louisiana, which is probably our least favorite state of all the states we've lived in. We get back to Michigan about twice a year, not sure yet if we'll make it for the reunion. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying life! Oscrddog@msn.com

My how things change...currently working on moving to Waterford. After working at Durakon, here in Lapeer, for four year, I left for hopefully something better!!! Now I'm working at Tru-Val Tubing in Waterford. The title is Production Control...but that means they're getting one person to do two people's work!!!! Truthfully, I've been promoted (after two months of working for them) up to Manager...I control the warehouse and part of production. Can't wait to see where this job will lead. I'm even thinking about going back to school...except in Engineering (friends think it's a bad idea, should go into Logistics (I know most of it already)). Who knows where tomorrow leads!!!!

Hello everybody! Its nice to hear that you're all doing so well. I spent 5 years in the Army planning on getting into law enforcement, only to realize that I didn't like it. So I went to school here in Austin, Texas and got lucky enough to get my foot in the door with a decent sized healthcare organization as a computer tech. I got a couple of Cisco networking certifications and am still working for the same company as a Network Engineer and Security administrator. My wife and I will be celebrating our 4th anniversary on October 30th, 2003 and we have two beautiful children, Madison, who's 4, and Noah, who just turned 2 in August. I hope to see you all at the reunion. Email me if you get a chance or look me up if youre ever in Texas.

I finally earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from Davenport University. About the same time, I decided that public accounting wasn't much fun (never seeing the sunlight during tax season and traveling too much during audit season). So I accepted an internal accounting position at a school district. It's a great job, especially the hours - the parking lot clears out at 4:30! I'm planning to start on my master's at Walsh college sometime next year. I think I'd like to teach at the college level down the road. I've been married since 1996 to Rudy, who I met while in the Army. We have three kids, Ashley's 8, Andrew's 6, and Emily is 4. I can't believe how big they're getting! Hope everyone's doing well!

Hello, anyone and everyone. If you remember me in my senior year, I was very pregnant with Alexandra who has just turned a precocious 10. 93-95 was spent working various jobs in the foodservice industry, where I cultivated a love for cooking and whiskey sours. I enrolled into college at U of M Flint with the full intention of doing something practical, but came to my senses and got a BFA in Art Metals from EMU. (with teacher certification) I have been teaching elementary school art in Dexter and at a Montessori School, But I quit the private school to teach elementary and high scool art in Dexter this fall. I hear that the 2nd grade students and the 10th grade students are pretty much the same, which might shed some insight on the whole High School experience on a cosmic level.I married Moonson Elliott (class of 91) in 1999 and we all changed our name to Eninsche (which is the Hungarian name from my moms side that was changed to Clark in the cold war era.)My current passions are for good company, teaching, and restoring our 1920 bungalow in Ann Arbor.

Hello everyone! I can't believe how long it's been! It's fun to read how everyone has changed! So, what have I been up to...I'm working at a financial software company in Rochester Hills, I am considered a "Marketing Coordinator" which basically means I set up trade shows and work on the web site. I'm also engaged now, my fiance (who I met at college) and I are planning a wedding sometime next June (2001). We bought a house in Clawson, and just adopted a puppy Weimaraner, who basically acts like a real baby. That's as close as I'm getting to having kids for awhile! Hope everyone is doing well!

But I am not satisfied with one degree, I am lookingat getting into Spanish, too bad I lost all that from high school. Butinterpreters are badly needed here, and especially in my line of work. Besides all that, I miss all my friends and family in Michigan andelsewhere.

HI All. I guess there are so many other "in touch" websites out there to connect, but decided to stick with the Lapeer West alumni site. Not many posts on this site, please, start spreading the word to re-post. I have been married now for almost 17 years. Three kids, Corall is 16, Bryan is 14 and Wyatt is 3. That's right, 11 years apart, but one of the best things I've ever done. I work for Fair Play games (www.fairplaygames.com) and am able to take Wyatt to work with me wich is the best. I received my associates in arts from Mott, and will hopefully be returning to Saginaw Vally for my bachelors. Still married to Dan from Lapeer West (1985). We love to travel, especially love Colorado. Keep in touch

Hi all, I just ran cross this site and thougt I'd give you all and update. I married my wife Patty (Fuller, Lapeer East '82) in 1984. We are about to celebrate our 25th anniversary in July. We have 3 beautiful daughters ages 22,20,13. I worked around the Lapeer area for 7 years before finding a job in Oxford. After working there for 3 years, I was promoted to a new position and moved to the Fort Worth, TX area and have been here since 1994. Our oldest daughter and her husband are expecting their first in Aug. All of our family still live in the Lapeer area so we do get up there once a year or so.

Hey everyone, apparently i was pretty slow in finding out about this website. Well, the update on me is: I graduated from Mich Tech with a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering in Dec of 01 and got a job with the Department of the Navy, working at Norfolk Naval Shipyard as a Nuclear Engineer. It has been a good job, can't complain. Got married in Dec of 06 to a wonderful girl named Becky. No kids yet, just a lab mix puppy and a collie puppy. We bought our first house on the water in Hampton, Va (near Virginia Beach) together in July of 07 and kept the houses we already owned as rental properties, so far that's going well. Feel fee to give me a holler if you want to, i've run into a few of you on Facebook. Glad to hear everyone else is doing pretty well. bigsteve1037@hotmail.com

Whats up all, just wanted to let everyone know what I have been up to these last few years. I went to Aquinas College where I played Basketball and Track for 2 years and gave up both sports to pursue Rock Climbing. I am now in training to become a professional climber. If anyone out there wants to climb I am more than willing to take you anywhere in the country, I have been all over. As of right now I am working as a phyiscal education teacher in Pontiac, not the best of places but it is experience. I am also in the middle of planning my wedding to a wonderful girl from Capac. The date is as of right now Nov. 26 2005. On Dec. 3rd my mom passed away which so far has been really hard for me but I know she is in a much better place. Overall everything has been great and I hope all is going well for everyone. I hope to come to then next reuion.

Hi Everyone,I have been married for 2 yrs now, and loving every minute of it. We have decided at this point to not have any kids until I am done with my college classes. We have a 14 yr old dog, which he acts just like a kid. We decided for a time being not to move out to Colorado, but it is still an option. In the meantime we decided to buy a home in Columbiaville, which we love. My husband is self-employed and shoes horses for a living. I work at Lapeer Medical Associates as a receptionist, but going to Baker now for a Medical Billing degree. It's great to see what everyone has been up to. May God Bless

Hello everyone! It's really nice to see how well everyone is doing. Sounds like everyone is very happy and settled, as am I. After high school, I began working at Lapeer County Bank and Trust Co. as a part-time teller and I worked my way up to assistant manager before quiting in February of this year to be a full-time mom. In October of 1997 I married Mike Tracey from Lapeer West's class of 1991. We are currently in the process of building our second house in Davison and enjoy spending time with our two-year old Samantha while we await the arrival of her little brother or sister in January of next year. Although we currently live in Lapeer, we're away from home a lot, boating and jet skiing at our cottage on Wixom Lake or going on business trips with Mike, which always seem to be to Chicago! It's a busy life, but we have a lot of fun. I'd love to hear from you.

I am recently married to a wonderful woman who had provided me with a beautiful daughter named Gabrielle. I now work at a business company named Palmer Commercial Services in which I am an Executive. I love my life and am extremely happy. I could not ask for anything more(except a dog). I currently live in Linden. We love it here. We are in a new neighborhood and the neighbors are great. I am anxious to hear from all of you. Feel free to e-mail me fellow classmates of 94'. I think about you all and the accomplishments that you have made.

I am a full time mother of three children. My oldest Ethan is almost eight and looking forward to second grade in a couple of weeks. Tatum (5) will start full day Kindergarten this year. That leaves one at home. Chloe my three year old, will enjoy having mommy all to herself. I enjoy scrapbooking when I can find the time. I have my Associates Degree in Professional Preschool Education and hope to return to teaching preschool someday when the kids are all in school. For now I enjoy being able to stay at home with my children.

Wow, It so great to hear everyone seems to be doing well. Let me tell you, I am just amazed at what can happen over 10 years. The last 7 years I have been working in the construction field as a structural detailer and am fortunate enough to say I like my job. Im sure its no surprise to many that Jen and I married In August of 2000. That same summer we bought a house just north of Lapeer and since then have made it into a busy little home. If you are wondering what Jen has been up to, let me tell you. Jen has the wonderful opportunity of raising our 2 little boys, Alex and Owen. Alex is 2 and looks like a small version of me. Owen on the other hand is 1 and is starting to look more like his daddy but has a lot of Jens features. Our little family is doing well, everyone is healthy and life is good. I have been running into a few classmates here and there lately and Im looking forward to rebuilding some long lost friendships. Im looking forward to hearing from anyone who wishes to email. Best wishes to all.

Hello to all! I missed the 5-year reunion because of my job, so it is good to hear that everyone is doing well. Ive been living in the Windy City for almost 5 years now and still love it. I am a recruiter (aka head hunter) that specializes in engineering, but I also work with IT and accounting professionals. No children, but I utilize the theory of borrow other peoples children, spoil them then send them home. When that fails, I always have my dogs. Right now, we have a St Bernard and several Rotties. That changes regularly since we assist with rescue dogs. I haven't heard anything about the 10 year so if anyone knows something, let me know. My email address is BonnieSKoch@yahoo.com If you are visiting the greater Chicago area drop me a line. I could definitely steer you in the right direction. Look forward to hearing from everyone!

Hello, golly it has been a long time. I currently work for the Formica distributor for pretty much the whole state of Michigan. Haven't done much since high school, could never decide what i wanted to be. Well now I am a mom. I have a son named Dylan. He is 18 months old now. He is my little souvenier from the Blueberry Festivle in Montrose. His dad and I are still together, getting ready to open up a trucking company. So I am pretty busy lining up all the rigs ( we already have 2 getting ready to buy more), keeping the books, working my job, and taking care of my son. He's pretty lucky that I let him drive over the road. Also we are going to be buying a new house out towards Montrose. Anyways we live in beautiful Burtucky (that's Burton for those of you lucky ones who don't have to live with all the rednecks) and I can't wait to get out of here. Would love to hear from you.

Hello all! Well, it's parent/teacher conference night here at my school. So, that means I'm in my classroom for the next 4 and 1/2 hours bored out of my mind! I wanted to check and see how everyone was doing, and it made me a little sad. Not many people are on this page, and we haven't been great at keeping it updated. As a teacher, I see so much of all of us in my students. It's incredible how quickly time actually passes. Well, I'm still married to Derek, hubby #2 who I met through match.com! I have my M.Ed in Curriculum and Instructional Technology (yes I'm a computer geek!) I'm a scrapbook addict, love to travel and be with my family. My daughter, Beth, is a fantastic coronet player and is now in the 7th grade! Can you believe I'm a mother to a tween? I could be a mother to more than half of my students! Yikes, that makes me feel VERY old. My son just turned five months old today (3-6-08). He is a miracle because I had to go through invitro to concieve him. Do to a bunch of wild health problems, I've been told to not have any more children (I'm saddened by this). It's funny how different it is having a baby 12 years later. Well, so much has gone by. If you want to drop me a line, click on my name!

Baby. My wife (Amy) and I just had a baby girl. Officially the Coolest Thing Ever. I put some pictures and account of her up on the website. Yep, I'm that bad. I even made a website for my kid. You guys have to remember. Yeah, I'm that much of a dork. Emma (that's the baby), aside from having the disadvantage of having a doofus for a father is (of course) the best, smartest, best smelling, she runs faster and jumps higher than all the other babies, and the smarmiest baby around. Drop me a line if you'd like to debate...June 13 2002, 12:33 AM, Emma Pearl Jamison. 8 Pounds 4 Ounces, 20 & 3/4" long.

During my internship I met my wife, Lisa Larzalere. Lisa is originally from Omaha, NE and graduated from Hope college in 1999. God is good. We dated 6 months, were engaged six months and have now been married for over a year. We are living temporarily in Swartz Creek until we head out, in late October (2002) for Queretaro, Mexico. Lisa and I will be working there doing Christian missions work among the city's 70,000 college students. Glad to see you are all doing well. Adios, vaya con Dios.

Hi everyone. I thought that it had been awhile, so I decided to give a new update. I have been happily married since November 1997. We have 3 children, Madysen who is 5, Richie who is almost 3, and Mason who is 18 months. They are the greatest, and bring excitment to every day. I am still going to school in search of a nursing degree, I will begin my clinicals in January next year. Who knew being a full time mom and a full time college student could be so challenging!! What was I thinking! We are still living in Davison and really like it. Rich, my husband spends any spare time he has from work, racing or working on the racecar. So between the kids, my school work, and his racing and working, we keep pretty busy....but I can say that I love my life and wouldn't change it a bit. I hope that everyone is as happy as I am, and I would love to hear for some of you....r2m2seady@aol.com

It's been a while since I updated this thing, and still don't know what caught my fancy to do so. After college I became a writer and followed the ups and downs of such a life by first becoming a writer for a paper in the Lapeer area, then a writer for a construction magazine, then unemployed, then doing freelance, then working freelance and a second stint at the construction magazine. The next logical step was for me to get married to some redhead who took pity on a poor boy, promptly quit my job(s) and then move to the Czech Republic. I'm currently there futiley working on my first book.

We have a 15 month old son named Joseph. We have a house in Elba Twp but are looking to sell and move to the Fenton area in the Spring of '04, so we can be closer to my husband's work. I work from home so that I can be home with my son. We are a Mopar and Nascar family, watch all the races, have all the gear. Other than Joseph, we have a chocolate lab named Homer and a cat named Gabbie. If anyone wants to email me, my email is:moparman360@juno.comHope to hear from you!!

Thought I would check to see if there were any updates for the new year and update mine a bit. Still married since 2000. I graduated from Auburn University in fall 2002 with a PhD in chemistry. I'm now doing a postdoc at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. We'll probably stay here forever. I have two Dobermans and a dalmation mix and stay very busy training and trialing them in Schutzhund. Love doing that the mostest! Other than that, nothing too exciting. Like to hear what everyone's doing.

He moved me to Iowa, right on the border of Nebraska. He's been working as a teacher and head football coach and track coach for 4 years now in Nebraska on an Indian reservation. We have a little girl named Madison Marie. She's 9 months old. I am currently a stay at home Mom, and LOVE it!! Every day, I feel very blessed to have the family I do. I hope everyone is doing well, and we hope to see you at our first reunion. Take care and God bless.

Hello everyone. After the graduation I changed my last and first name from Amy Gutierrez to Amie Kersten (step-dad's last name). I also got married and had a baby. After 1 year we were divorced. I "kissed the right butt" at the company I was working for and moved into Marketing as a Travel and Event Planning Coordinator. Life has been very good to me by opening doors one would think could never open. In this past year I have been able to concentrate on ME, fitness, nutrition & education. I have taken a long vacation (13 months) and I support myself on the savings I was able to "put away" while working since I graduated from High School. I am thinking of going back to work within the next few months but it's nice not to be rushed. I live in Rochester Hills with my son in a cute place which I just redecorated from top to bottom. I hope you all are doing well and if you see Niki Zibisky or Amanda Penrose tell them to call me (I don't really see anyone from Lapeer West these days).

I recently heard about this "cyber" reunion and figured I should let my former classmates know how I am doing. Well After my career at Lapeer West, I applied to Harvard, but was unfortunately rejected because of my 2.0 gpa in high school. Luckily, I was excepted to another prestigeous collge in Flint Michigan, called Mott Community College. After Mott, I attended Central Michigan University and graduated with a degree in Health Fitness and Cardiac Rehabilitation in 2000. I am currently still in Mt. Pleasant where I am finishing up another degree in secondary education. My parents still live in the lapeer area, and I usually visit once a month. I have no kids, (at least none that I no of?), but continue to date. One nice thing about the Mt. Pleasant area is that every year young freshmen girls enter this city in large numbers!!!! Come on, I am joking people!! Anyway, here is my email address, jake22smith@hotmail.com - LOVE TO HEAR FORM YOU ALL!!!!

I finally got around to updating this (the last posting was up there for a long time). A lot has happened in the last few years, but I will try to keep this update much shorter than the last. Here is the short version of a long strange trip (no room for the juicy details): I graduated from CMU in 2000 with a BS in Education (major: physical sciences, minor: psychology). I even taught for Lapeer Schools one summer (physical science) before I took a job teaching science and psychology at Lake Fenton High School. I ended up moving to Ann Arbor, got a Masters Degree in Library & Information Science (Wayne State University, 2004). I have owned a home in Ypsilanti since 2003 and I am now currently teaching full-time at Lincoln High School (a huge school a few miles south of Ypsilanti in the middle of corn-field country). I am head of the media department and the high school librarian. It is a wonderful career. I also teach a physics class two nights a week at the lovely Washtenaw Community College. This probably makes me sound like a pretty nerdy person, but I am quite happy and I love living in this area. For fun I work as a stage manager (booking bands, running sound/lighting, etc.) at a live music club in downtown Ypsilanti called The Elbow Room (www.ypsirocks.com). Believe it or not, I am still performing in the band Sin Embargo with my brother, Eric. I formed that band when I was in 10th grade and we are still making music and playing clubs. I have kept even more active in my other band, Las Drogas. Check out the music, photos and more information at www.sin-embargo.com. Sign the guestbook while you are there.

Presently I can be found in Traverse City. I have been back up here for the last two years. I am FINALLY going back to school for nursing. No body laugh or be scared, I won't be hurting anyone. I have found the one to spend the rest of my life with. It's been an interesting few years. I will hopefully, so be coming back down to Lapeer to visit. I haven't been back for 2 years. Hopefully I can still find a few of you to see. Anyhow, until the next time. Take care...

I have been President of our Teacher's Union for a little over two years. I am still teaching Physical Education in Okeechobee, FL. I have been here for 24 years now. My daughters are 21 and 24 and attend Florida State. Evelyn(24) will be graduating in April with her Master's Degree in Latin. She is also getting married in June 2006. I have been married to Paul for 10 years now. We met in Florida but he's from Michigan, too. I'm looking to retire in 2 years and get back "home." I haven't decided what I want to do when I "grow up," but I have a couple of years to figure that out. E-mail me: candicewalker@hughes.net Or better yet, come to Florida to visit!

1995 moved to great state of Tennessee. Attended University of Tennessee, a lot of orange down here! Secondary Math Education major. Have since switched to computer accounting, but still hold keen interest in education. Currently on examination for Knoxville, Tennessee Police Department. I currently live in Seymour, Tennessee with great views of the Great Smoky Mountains. My family, which there are 9 kids, for the most part are still in or around Lapeer, with the exception of my brother Bill, whose Air Force teaching job has him with wife and kids in Biloxi, Mississippi. In my part time i manage my family's restaurant here in Seymour. I participated in the NCAA bowling team while at UT. I'm glad to hear the few who are on here are doing well, especially my old friend Kyle. way to go! I"m no longer a quiet person, I have learned i have a voice and don't keep to myself anymore. I still have my sense of humor though. I am single with no kids, but hopefully something will come along. my email is jelane44@hotmail in case anyone wants to get in touch.

Hey yall, it is nice to read about everyone. I forgot my username so I am just making a new profile. Wow I can't believe how long it has been since we have all been at Lapeer West, and I can't believe how many of you still live in Michigan. I, like John Lane, had to get out of that cold state and moved to Tennessee. I live about a half hour from Nashville. It is beautiful down here. My sons are growing so fast it is unreal. My oldest Brendan is 8 and them goes Owen who is 5, then my baby Hunter. I am still single although I think I have met the most wonderful man in the world.In Jan. 2003 I finally started college majoring in Childhood Education, although I couldn't finish this semester due to circumstances I couldn't help I am hopeing to go back in the fall. The only person I still talk to from school is Melanie (Loree) Nettleton. I would love to hear from some of you. Tom Sudia if you ever make it to Nashville let me know I would love to hear your band. I have a friend in Nashville that is a song writer that i love to go see play. And I am always in Nashville in the summer at concerts. Colleen I should've know you'd become a police officer, I am glad you enjoy it.Where is Rachael Berry though? And Sarah Wilson if you get a chance drop me a line. Well that is all of my boring life right now. Hey Travis, Congrats on your baby boy!!! If anyone wants to contact me email me at any of the following.... starangles_9799@yahoo or hotmail.com, starangles27@netscape.net, or tiggers_girl_4_ever_2003@yahoo.com I hope to hear from some of you.

I just wanted to update my records a little, but could not remember my password and such. Old age is catching up with me, LOL. Many things have changed since I last updated. I got married on July 27, 2002. My husband is the most wonderful man in the world, and Jennifer Woodard would agree. By the way Jen needs to update her records just a little, hint hint Jen. Our kids are growing up so fast. My daughter Kaitlyn is 8 now and the best child ever. My step daughter is also 8 and everyone is amazed when I tell them that she is my step daughter, because Tori and Kaitlyn look so much alike. My step son Michael is 7 and he is all boy. He keeps me so busy.My husband has changed his job recently. He is now a funeral director at the one and only funeral home here in Munising, Mi. I have also changed my profession. I did not chose to, the man that I cared for, for almost four years passed away in Feb. of this year. So at this time I am going to school and taking care of my family. After I am finished with school I will be a nurse midwife. But that will still be a while since I did not start back to school until last fall. We have as my daughter calls it a zoo. We have a dog named Bart who is four, a puppy named Tilly who is a month old, a cat named Emily who is two, two guinea pigs that are a pain, and two fish. We are planning on buying a bigger house soon, that has some land. My husband said no horses or pigs so the girls and I are kind of bumbed. But then again we get our way on everything else, lol...Well that is about all for my family, I think that this was way long enough.. feel free to email me mkloree@chartermi.net

HELLO EVERYONE. My how times change. I thought i would update my file, but since i couldn't access my old one, i created a new one. Most of you know, i moved to Tennessee, and i'm still here, just south of Knoxville, in a town called Seymour, it's really close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, so if any of you make it around here, look me up. I am married with 2 incredible identical twin boys, Kyle and Kevin. They are the joy of my life, it's a blessing to watch them grow up. It's great to see everyone with their own families growing strong. I work as a production engineer in Maryville, Tenn at a place called Denso. I took a lenghty bit of time off school to focus on my family and seeing what life was like without a class or test to worry about. It probably shocks many of you to know I won't graduate college til 2005. I don't regret it, it's nice to see other things in life other than a book shoved up your nose. To all those who have graduated , congrats. I know how hard it is. I will enter the teaching field, K-8, with a pre-teaching math bachelors degree. It seems we are all spread about the country these days, i hope to have a 10 year reunion so we can all get together and catch up. It should be an awesome time. Please include me in your plans. Seymourlanes@yahoo.com Anyone who wishes to write, please do so. I promise to write back. Take care "95, and God Bless.

Hi everyone! I hope you're doing well in your "growd-up" lives. I am doing very well, and am so happy with my life. I am now 4 days discharged from the Navy Seabees, and am set to move to Fowlerville (NW of AnnArbor 45 mins). I am anxious to go to a 10 year reunion, very disappointed that there was no 5 year "show off". My wife, Maya, wouldn't let me sleep if I didn't mention her (ha-ha). Seriosly, I'm happily married (3yrs) and am waiting for my first miracle (Alexandria Elizabeth) in October some time. I will be using "Sams" money for college and who knows what will happen after that. I want to say "HEY!" to Mike Rodda, Julie Morse, Rich Penny, Kevin Anderson, Jason Putman, Dave Blanzy, Heather Bednar ski, Beth Delling, Cyndi Meissner, Troy McLaughlin, Erica Palmer, Brian Schmock, Jenny Wilson, John Yelle, and Jolene Leuck. I particularly miss you guys, and would hope to catch up later. I've heard bits and pieces and want to find out the rest. Hi to Shannon too. If I don't hear/see any of you folks than good luck and God be with you.

We're still living in Chandler, Arizona. A suburb of Phoenix. Been out here in the desert for almost three years now. I miss a lot of things in Michigan, but enjoy the opportunities here and all of positives that come with a warm climate. Michele and I have two awesome sons. Bradley (4 years-old) and Nathan (7 months old). She stays home with the boys and starting in January she will be a "soccer mom". We even have a minivan... we're as suburban as you can get, I guess. I'm working as a software consultant on a two-year contract at the public water and electric utility here in Arizona. I've been working a software developer for ten years now and it looks like this is my career. amokan at gmail dot com

REUNION UPDATE: The reunion date/place has been set! June 17th, 2006 (Fathers' Day weekend) at Canterbury Castle in lake Orion. Hopefully Fathers' Day weekend will work well especially for classmates that have moved out of state. Expect your invitation in the spring. Visit the class website: http://west96.edictspaces.com. There is a reunion weblog where all of us can contribute ideas and keep in touch. Currently, over 30 classmates have registered! Please contact me at andrea@edict.com or 248-765-0023 if you have any information, contact numbers, or would like to help. In 2000 I graduated from Michigan State University with a BFA in graphic design. I work at Edict Incorporated...a web-developement company in Rochester as the senior layout designer. Eric Austin (class of 94) and I were married in August 2001. I am so happy to be married to such a wonderful man, I couldn't have asked for a kinder more loving person with which to spend the rest of my life. He has a degree in Architecture from Lawrence Tech University and this is his 11th year owning Austin Brick Pavers. In addition to outdoor brick work, his company does ceramic tile, marble and stone installation. We started out on Hummer Lake in Ortonville in a little 450 square foot house. We built our dream home next door so now the little house is a guest cottage. Eric designed the big house for his senior project at Lawrence. We have three little dogs: Pepper a 4 year old Jack Russell, Daisy a 4 year old sheppard mix and Diesel a 5 month old toy rat terrier (only 4 pounds!). We are very excited with the latest news that we are expecting a baby on June 11th! I'm glad to see how everyone is doing!

Hey everyone! Still live out in Attica, still married. Still no kids. I still own my small business named Nite Time Novelties. I sell toys for adults. It's the most fun I've had at a job. I still am selling Real Estate at Century 21, Country Squire here in town, kind of a bad time to be in Real Estate, but I'm pretty happy with my success so far. Also, the newest in my list of occupations, I am now working at Roberts Buick Pontiac just south of I-69. I am the Internet Sales Manager, basically I keep the website updated, and am responsible for any internet based inquires. I am having fun at this job too, never sold cars before, but it's not too hard. Life is fun, I'm keeping busy! If anyone would like to reconnect, please feel free to e-mail me!

Planning on starting my career as an actor soon, but currently playing the role of a security guard at Vlasic Foods in Imlay City. Keeping the world safe from pickle-knappers to pay the bills. I'll most likely start school in the fall as well. What can i say... i left to serve my country and i came back to the now strange city of Lapeer. Hope to see more of you all around in the future.

Hello everyone.Lets see where to start off. I attended ITT Technical Institute in Troy for 2 years. I received my Associates Degree in Computer Science. Since then I was working at Lear Corporation in Southfield as a Studio Engineer. I've recently left them to work for my dads company, Valley Building & Repair. I'm thinking about going back to school for an Architecual Degree and to get my Builders License. I got married on May 18th 2001 to Amy Reamer class of 97. The wedding was excellent and we went to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico for our honeymoon. Playa Del Carmen is 40 miles south of Cancun and basically right across from Cozumel. Rob Tisch was my best man, and I also had Martin Dudas, Greg Weckle, Chad Nuckles, and Chris Griswold stand with me. No kids yet, maybe in a couple years we will try. Don't get me wrong I love kids and we plan on having at least 3, but we just aren't ready yet. We purchased the house I grew up in from my parents, which is in Ortonville. Well I guess that's it. Feel free to contact me if anyone wants to.

Hi everyone. I see it has been a while since I've looked at this page. I missed the reunion, and I'm sorry about that. I heard about it from others. As for me, you may have noticed my last name has changed. I am now Mrs. Della-Moretta (that took a while for my students to learn). I married Justin Della-Moretta (he's from the U.P.) this past summer (7/11/08). We live in Mt. Pleasant with our cat, Charlie. I am in my 7th year of teaching biology and anatomy at Alma High School. I ran into a former friend and band geek the other day. If you are in Mt. Pleasant, please email me (jdellamoretta@almaschools.net OR sparkyelm@yahoo.com)

Isn't the real world a lot different then the petty high school life?! I am currently living in Lake Orion with my husband, Brian, and daughter,Kennedy. Right after high school I went to cosmetology school and received my license to do hair. A couple months after receiving my license Brian and I got married in Toronto. Six months after being married we decided to start a family. Four months into my pregnancy we bought a house near Bald Mountain Recreation (still Lake Orion). On January 20th, 1999 our daughter made into world. That's when Brian and I decided that it would be the best if I would stay home until our bank account says otherwise. I still do hair, but just outside of our house.I hope that all of your lives have turned out the way you have imagined them to. SEE YA!

Not too much new here. Still at the gas station, but with the way the economy is going, I'm better off sticking at a job where I have experience and decent pay. The marriage is off... after I had surgery in July 02, she showed her true colors. Better that I find out before than after, right? College plans are still on hold... lack of money. I have one beautiful orange shorthair cat named Spunky who just turned 2. I spend a good portion of my free time on the computer, though I recently made some antique-looking paper for a card for my mom's 50th birthday. It turned out really great, although she wasn't thrilled about me calling her "old." Hope everyone out there is doing well... I'd like to hear from you guys sometime!

For those of you that I didn't get the chance to chat with, after West I went on to U of M flint and got a bachelor's degree. Then it was on to the University of Florida (GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and I got my master's in physician assistant studies. That is also where I met Josh, and we've been married since Sept. of '04. He works as a P.A. in neurosurgery and I work in dermatology. No kids just yet...but we're practicing! Life is good.

Well, I am all grown up and married now.

I graduated in 2000 with an engineering degree and am working for Toyota on body design for the 2004 Solara. Adam graduated the year before from the Business school and works for Comerica Bank in downtown Ann Arbor. Currently, I only keep regular contact with Emilie Bodoin and Chris Palte from our class, but I love reading these postings to see how everyone's lives are turning out, so please keep updating. If anyone wants to get ahold of me, you can email at twaugh@ttc-usa.com. (haven't gotten the email address updated yet)

Afterward, I moved to New York City (Manhattan) where I work for a fantastic group that develops and funds global businesses - counterintuitively - its an extremely creative position. This summer, I will attend Columbia University for a creative writing program, and will travel to Gaza and Southern Lebanon to continue my research (if the Israeli's and Palestinians haven't blown themselves up by then) In the last few years, I have worked for the Embassy of Lebanon, founded and ran a nonprofit for at-risk inner city children in Pittsburgh, and have traveled and written extensively.

Howdy! I am currently attending the University of Michigan-Flint where I am in my second semester of the BSN Nursing program. I am now at Hurley Medical Center two days a week working with many patients. I will be graduating in the year 2002 and I am excited to get out and work. I am still undecided on what field in nursing I want to pursue, but I am thinking that Labor and Delivery or a Wound nurse will suit me. I may change my mind later as I experience more areas of study. I have too little experience right now to totally decide. I am still dating my highschool sweetheart Craig Cummings (5 years!), but there are no plans for marriage yet. I would like to finish school first and get established in my career. We did, however, buy 11 acres of land in Otter Lake approximately 2 years ago. It has come a long way and eventually we plan on building our dream home there. Since I don't have a family yet, you all get to hear about my property. Craig and I are proud to announce the future development of our 1,100 foot driveway (April 2000). haha Well I hope all is well with you and yours. I am always excited to get e-mail so drop me a line and let me know how you are all doing. nbelprez@hotmail.com

Hello Everyone, I have spent a great deal of energy trying to get out of Lapeer and now I find myself back here and happy to be near my family again. I've been married to Macon Lennox for six years now and have two beautiful daughters, Grace(2)and Julie(4 months). Macon and I have moved all over the place just being crazy kids, growing up together. We lived in Miami for a few years and moved back to Michigan right before I found out I was pregnant with our first daughter. I was doing massage therapy in Grand Rapids for a couple years then worked at a really hot night spot on South Beach while in Miami. Now I'm a mom full time and love every minute of it. We bought a house in Davison almost two years ago and have spent a lot of time renovating it. Through all of my experiences over the last six years, becoming a mother has been by far the most fulfilling of all. After all, "The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world".

After high school I went to college and become a cop. Shortly after that I got discharged but I don't like to talk about it. Now I'm the trailer park supervisor at Sunnyvale Trailer Park which is a lot like being a cop. Basically you have to make sure the park is running smoothly. That means stopping people from using illegal drugs and not letting greasy recidivists bring the park down. On a happier note, I met my girlfriend Angie back in November of 99. In December of 2002, we had a beautiful girl, Lillian. No marriage yet, maybe in a couple years we will try. Don't get me wrong I love weddings and I plan on having at least 3, but we just aren't ready yet. Talk to ya later, Peace

Heck, I'm already half way to retirement!:) These last 9 years passed in a blink and I imagine that the next 11 will go by just a quick. Starting to feel old, talking about retirement. Glad to hear that everyone's doing good, as wish the best for you all. I'm hoping to see everyone at the reunion next year in 2006. I will definately be there. Hey Vince!

I've been to Sweden 3 times and lived there 3 months the last time. What an experience! It's definately different. I've also set up a little webcam site, mainly to see if I could even do it. It's kinda cool though if I may say so myself. Should be listed on here somewhere if you wanna check it out. Anyways, that's it I guess!

Wow. So much to say. I moved away with my parents and went to college on Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Oscoda. I never did graduate from Alpena Community. I met a great guy, and we were married a year later. We have two children. Our daughter is 15, and our son will be 12 in September. While living in Nebraska, it was discovered that Eric had a brain tumor, and we learned his mother had Alzheimer's Disease. Eric's operation rendered him deaf in his left ear and resulted in a loss of balance. He had to get out of the military, and we moved to Lake Jackson, TX to help care for his mother. Eric's mother passed at home, and we are back in Nebraska now, but we do not know for how long. Eric is currently putting out applications for other jobs with the government. His job is going away when then close the section in February. I have been going to school off and on all these years. I keep trying to get my BSN, but each time we move, I seem to be having to start all over. One day. For now, I am happy. I have a terrific husband and two wonderful children. Who could ask for more?

Remember me - the Norwegian exchange student?? Well, back home in Norway, I finished school, worked a year and then went on to a university closer to Oslo. I studied chemistry, geology, hydro(geo)logi and other subjects concerning pollution and environment. The percent of employment here in Norway is high, so it took me a while to get a permanent job. So after I graduated, I've tried out working in a kindergarden and two schools - interesting, but teaching is not for me, at least not the ten year olds... The last year I've been working in the county council with affaris concerning environment and health. In Sept. '07 I'm starting in my new job. It'll be in Oslo (the capital of Norway), following the gradual closing of a landfill and surveying the discharge from it. I'll have other tasks as well, but you probably get the general idea. I'm married, got a house but no kids so far. I've started golfing (not very good yet), and I love hiking and skiing here in Norway. This August I'll be visiting the US again, staying with the Jaje's the first few days, travelling around a bit and then be back for Jenni's wedding. Maybe I'll see some of you again?

Hi everybody! I just found out that I can do this so for those of you who care here is what's goin' on. Well I attended Mott Community College right after graduation for about two years then got accepted to MSU where I attended for about 2months before I came home. The school was too big and I wasn't ready yet. In June of 2001 I married William Gaffney, a Lapeer East '96 graduate whom I had been dating for a few years. He has a 3 year old little boy and I love my husband and stepson very much. I plan on going back to Mott for the 2002 summer semester and I either want to become a teacher or put my interest into psychology. Not quite sure yet. I am currently working at Taco Bell in Lapeer. Its not quite my dream job but it'll do until I get a degree and can get a good job. I still live in Lapeer, I can't seem to leave. Other wise life is good and not as hard as everyone made it out to be.

Hello everyone! It was great to hear about all of your lives since highschool. Mine has been great as well, I attended Western Michigan University and recently graduated (december 2001) with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood Endorsement and minors in Math/Science and the Integrated Creative Arts. My two most memorable experiences at WMU were being a member of the WMU Dance Team and my intern teaching experience. While interning I had 19 little second grade angels! Summer of 2001 was my first in k-zoo and I fell in love with the most amazing person I have ever met! Good news! After subbing for a semester I have a job for fall as a 4th grade teacher within Mattawan Later Elementary School!!! I will also be teaching dance part time at a nearby studio!!!

I love coming to this website to see how everyone is doing. Sounds like everyone is accomplishing their goals. As for me, I finally finished school at Oakland University in December 2002 with a BS in Journalism and a specialization in Advertising. I spent a few weekends traveling around to various places in parts of Texas, Florida, Ohio, Chicago, and Boston with friends for vacation and somewhat job searching but then decided to try looking in the Detroit area. I met Jeff McLenna ('99 LW graduate)last March and started working in Bloomfield Hills at a video production studio. On June 2nd this year I had Jocelyn Ann. It's definitely a whole new experience. Also, Becky and I now get together more often so our girls can "socialize", her little one is only 2 days younger than mine!

Yeah, so... yeah. I went to ITT for a year and then started at UM-Flint. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do, so I just sort of browsed life options for a while, surfed rather aimlessly ... sort of like you're doing right now. I went from engineering to chemistry to mathematics. I got stuck in mathematics and can't seem to find my way out. It is really weird how, if you do this stuff for long enough, mathematics, you get serious about it and it really grabs your imagination. I don't believe Lapeer West ever did that for me; I never liked my education until I entered the university. I'll graduate with my B.S. in mathematics in May 2004, and start graduate studies in mathematical logic later this fall. Visit my web site, and send me an e-mail if you'd like.

Well, it's September and life sucks..... I have found myself laid off from my poured-wall concrete job. I am still single, and the band has not gotten that big break yet. This has lead me and the rest of the band to relocate to sunny Florida for the winter months to work and promote the band in a new environment. I'm excited to do so, but until then, life sucks in Michigan. For right now, I am living on the west side of Flint. It kinda sucks here, but at the same time, I really like it. I am still in close contact with a lot of friends from high-school. And, surprisingly enough, a lot of them are involved in the Flint music scene. First we have my partners Drew Picket and Mitch Petiprin in my band (Skin Casket). Then we have Tonya Traweek who is singing for industrial metal band Girl Scout Hand Grenade. Next we have Tom Sudia who plays bass in Foundation of Power along with Tony Spina who is also in Selfless. I love playing music with my friends and I'm very fortunate to have met all the great people in the Flint scene. If anyone cares, they should check out the Flint Death Squad and see how we are all working to make the Flint scene safe for metal again. www.flintdeathsquad.com R.I.P. Dimebag

I have alot of new things that have happenened since I last wrote. Well I am still with Carl Stover('98 Lapeer East Grad.) We are getting married on July 26, 2003. I am very excited. My son Alexander is almost 5 yrs. old and he is looking forward to starting school in August. I am still working at our neighborhood grill and bar the ever famous Lapeer Applebees. I only work part time though. I have run into a few former classmates there. My fiance works for my mother's boyfriend at his company in Rochester Hills as a purchasing agent. It is a great job and it also helps let me be able to stay home more with Alex. well I hope everyone is as happy in their lives as I am in my own. Take Care

Hi everyone. Just thought that I should update what has been going on. A year ago Nicole and I bought our first house in Keego Harbor, MI. We love it. We have since added a dog to our family of two cats. Her name is Bella Bigtime. We are also expecting our first child in February. Too early to tell what it is, but as soon as the doctor can tell, we will find out. Nikki still works in Troy. I now work at a baseball school in Auburn Hills. Hope everything is going great for everyone.

I am going to have to agree with Todd on the whole high school experience thing. Right now I am at MSU, looking to graduate in December 2001 with a mechanical engineering degree. I don't have a wife or a kid for that matter. I'll probably end up working for GM since I will be interning there for the second straight summer. Let me note how great it is to live in Bloomfield Hills while working in the summer. So much more better than Lapeer as far as bars and pretty much everything else. My second place of residency would be here in East Lansing, which is also better than Lapeer. Other than that, I don't have anything else to say since I only talk to 2 old friends from H.S.

It was nice to log in and see some updates. Glad to hear everyone is doing well. Since last I updated my "bio", so many things have happened. I have been married now for almost 3 years to my wonderful husband, Aaron. We don't have any kids and no plans yet. Just Aaron & I in our cozy home with our puppy, Jada. I work as a Purchasing Coordinator for Charter Communications. All in all, life is pretty good. It's hard to believe that we've been out of school for 10 years! I haven't kept in touch with anyone from school. I think I may have seen a few here and there, but not too many or too much. Hope everyone is doing well! Take Care!

Hi everyone, I thought I'd update this since I'm at the LW web site. Well since graduation at Lapeer West, I went to college at the University of Michigan - Flint as a Mechanical Engineer, switched to Computer Science 4 years later, graduated in 2003. I had an internship at Kettering University in Flint, Michigan. Got hired as a Web Developer part-time for their Cooperative Education and Career Services department and helped launch a new web based database. I learned a ton there enough to be an essential part of their team, they promoted me full-time in April 2004 as a Client/Server Analyst for Web Applications. August 2005, I was promoted to co-webmaster for the entire University. Also I'm starting my Master's degree at Kettering University this fall in Information Systems. On a personal level, I got married December 2004 to my girlfriend of three years, Amanda. I moved out of Lapeer to Davison with her in an apartment. Once she graduates from the University of Michigan - Flint with her teaching degree, we'll be looking to purchase a home. I'm enjoying life a lot and it keeps getting better and better all the time.

Havent used my degree yet, as now I am going into my second season with the Carolina Panthers of the NFL. I am single and loving it. The things you hear about, read about, and see in movies about the NFL lifestyle are not made up. I have no desire to grow up and settle down, i'm having too much fun. I hope to play a long time but I know it can end any day. If anyone wants say what's up, just send me an email (kemprasmussen@yahoo.com). I'd love to hear from you.

In June of '05 I got promoted to a Technical support manager for the department that I was previously working in. I own a home in Waterford which I purchased in 2004. It's alright for now as a starter home but I still have plans of making my way out west. I teach snowboarding at Mt. Holly in my spare time.

Well, here I am checking a Lapeer West High message board after 4 years o out of high school life, heh. If anybody really cares, past re-living a distant and far off time known as high school, I now am getting ready to Graduate from good old Eastern Michigan University in the Spring of 2003. While attending EMU, or Ghetto U., I will have completed a bachelors in Political Science. I will also complete my Teaching Certificate this spring. Which I will use to probably teach english in the southern provence of China, Hunan. After the year Abroad I will come back to the States to get my Masters in Political Science then hopefully on to a P.H.D. or a good high school teaching job. What was the coolest thing I have done since leaving Lapeer in 98'? The parties are cooler at college than at the Voelpels house. I spent six weeks doing an independant study in Greece with the PKK (communist workers party)last summer I also spent 2 weeks in Turkey working with the PKK doing humanitarian work for the impovershed Kurdish people. I also have also been able to travel and Study in Italy, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, England and Australia. Its really weird to read all these names that I havent thought about in a long time.....heh kinda cool............and I still listen to bush....heh

Hey everyone, I didn't graduate with the class of '85, but I spent quite a few years with all of you, better known as Meatball, or "albondiga" in Spanish. I moved down to the Detroit area in 84, and then moved into the inner-city a few years later and got myself into all sorts of trouble. Anarchy, pirate radio, and quite a few arrests. Of course, I turned it all around and I am now a Quaker preacher attending graduate school at Earlham College, adn living on an Ohio farm. I am married to a great woman, Jenn, and I have five children, Kellen (18), Dylan (15), Emma (10), Rosa )5), and Micah (2). We were doing work with the homeless population of Grand Rapids before moving to Ohioana for school. We plan to return to West Michigan in 2008, where I will finish up an MSW degree,and we will run a farm for at-risk mothers and children. I have given up on rich and famous. Feel fre to contact me, or visit my blog if you won't be threatened by radical theology and pacifism. www.rscotmiller.blogspot.com Blessings to all of you from Lapeer.

Hello, if you remember me, well what can I say, one day your in an art class, the next day your moving, soon your in college, then you have a digree, and then your wonting to move back. To any one that know me forget what your thinking and start looking at what your doing, college changed me as well as me living on my own, yes it is true what they say, you'll change and you'll grow, but life has its ups and downs, I never marid, I don't have kids, but being 23 has made me think and all that I wont now is to have a good life. College did one thing for me that will always be with me, a change of how I think and do things, and if you wont to go to college, do it now and get it over with. I bet that you would like to know what I went to college for, well art was always in my mind to do, but when you move to a place where you see art on every place you have to rederect where you would like to be more arts in, well Film and Video was the way to go, yes even Film is an art, I've done more films then any one that I went to college with and have had the best of luck with them, I'll be moving back to Lapeer on Oct. 26, 2002, so look me up, I'll be looking to make a film in Lapeer some time soon, may be even start a Production co. there too.

If you don't understand why I picked a physics major instead off a chemistry ot biology major, too bad, this is just a summary not a novel; however it will be explained in my autobiography "The Other Half", due in bookstores sometime in late June.

After four short years of college, I took the summer off and just recently started my career at Johnson Control's Inc. in Holland, MI. There, I am an engineer working with cargo systems for the back of mini-vans and SUVs. I love my job so far. It is very hands-on and I get to move around a lot and work with other people. It is great for me, because I can't sit still for very long and would never be able to spend 8 hours at a desk everyday. I also do a lot of traveling to Detroit and Warren to meet with Chrysler, General Motors, and other suppliers. It feels great to finally be making some money and enjoying the real world. I am not done with school completely, though. Johnson Controls will be paying for my part-time graduate school starting in January so I can get a Master's degree in engineering management. On a different note, I am also engaged to be married to a wonderful woman I met at college on a co-ed flag football team. We have been dating for a couple years, and probably wont get married for a couple more, because she has to finish up her teaching degree and do her student teaching. I hope everybody else is doing well. "Nibb High Football Rules!"

I'm currently working at an art gallery here in Pittsburgh as a Custom Art Consultant. This has aloud me to meet several interesting people, and make some really nice contacts that will hopefully help me find decent job.In case any of you are wondering (I'm sure none of you are) My animated film Kung-Fu Duck has been put on hold for a while. It has become a much more challenging, and bigger task then I had anticipated, but I'm hoping to begin work on it again in Febuary and I'm shooting for finished film sometime in 2004.

I figured I better update this since it's been a few years and things have changed. I graduated from MSU with a Bachlors degree in Animal Science. From there I pursued what I thought was my dream of managing a horse farm. That turned out to be a nightmare so I ended up back with my old job with the DNR. I'm currently a DNR officer at Ortonville/Metamora-Hadley Rec Areas and loving it. I get to play in the outdoors all day. It doesn't get any better than that. Last fall I purchased a house on Big Fish Lake. It is small but cozy and works for now. The dream of a horse farm is still there but I have a feeling it is going to take a while to get there. I'm not married yet and have no children unless you include my 3 heathen kitties and my 2 beastly horses. Life hasn't treated me to bad. Oh yeah, and Nina Kassarjin (sp?) became my sister in law last summer. Funny how things work out. We enjoy talking about old high school days and updating each other on who we see and what their doing. If any of you are ever in the area, stop by the park and say hello. Hope everyone is doing well!

Lets see. Last time I had just graduated college. Now I have less than a month to go before I have completed my first full year of my career. I am currently working at a prison in Saginaw. I'm at the bottom of the ladder but hope to step up quickly. The money is good and so are the benefits. I also live in Saginaw, but hope to eventually move to the western side of Michigan.

Well I've managed to land a job teaching high school speech and English at Davison HS. I have a year under my belt and it's been cRazY! Teaching looks a lot easier than it really is. Boy do I feel bad for giving all those teachers a hard time growing up (Mrs. Curran especially. Poor woman!)I guess I'm pretty lucky to have landed a job right out of college since the market for teachers has taken a downturn. The personal life is rather uneventful right now. Davison isn't too fun for a twenty-something (nor is Lapeer for that matter). Otherwise things are are going swimmingly (however that may be).

Jim and I have been married now for almost 29 years. We have two kids. Jill is 24 and married living near Coldwater with her husband Dan who is a youth pastor and their son Micah (yes, I am a Grandma) and there is another one on the way (due Aug. 2). Steve is 14 and will be in 9th grade at East in the fall. I graduated a LONG time ago from C.M.U. with a degree in secondary education- Music and Recreation. I have given piano lessons for over 20 years and I teach eight aerobic classes a week at the community center. Jim and I are very active at the Trinity United Methodist church in Lapeer. I have only been away from Lapeer for the years that I was in college and three years that I worked and lived in Port Huron. There sure aren't many from our class that still live here! Guess that is all for now. I would love to hear from you.

I am happy to report that college is flying by fast, almost two years done!! I am currently at Oakland University majoring in nursing with the plan to get a masters degree in Anethesia (I don't want to be a nurse so that's the plan). I am working full time at an apartment complex as their accounts receivable rep. I plan to go back to waitressing (part-time)in the fall because all my classes will be during the day. I come to Lapeer everyone weekend about to visit family if I don't have too much homework! I hope to see everyone soon!!

Yes my name is Gary Chalice but many still call me Jones and various other nicknames. Since graduating I attended Mott Community College where I played on the baseball team. I am now at Central Michigan University where I play baseball for the club team. I live in an apartment with Rob Belprez,Mark Ameel,Andy Allen,and one of our friends from Lake Orion. I am majoring in secondary education with a focus on history and hopefully a minor in Spanish. People think I am crazy but I would like to return to West to teach and coach. Before I entered the real world I would like to move to Colorado for a while and spend some time participating in many outdoor activities on the red rock. Well thats it for now. Fire Up Chips!!!!!

I just finished up my first year in the Communication PhD. program at the University of Kentucky. It has been a killer year and I am so excited for a break this summer. I'm still dating Steve (it has been 4 and a half years). Unfortunately, Steve still attends MSU in East Lansing so there is a good 6 hour drive between us. We make it work though! This past year I became an aunt and I love it!! Natalie is so cute! The 10 year reunion is going to be next August (summer 2008) and there will be more information as the date becomes closer. I've booked the Metamora Country Club!! Can you believe it has almost been 10 years?? If you get a chance, check out our class web page at http://www.lapeerschools.org/west/alumni/west1998/index.html send me any updates you want to add to it. I hope everyone is doing fantastic!!!

Does anyone ever actually read these things? Just in case anyone is curious, I'm still living in Kansas City. Have been since I graduated from Cornell in '02. I have my own home and am currently working two jobs until I can get my student loans paid off. On top of that I'm starting up my own home based business and trying to find my place in the local reptile industry. No wife or kids just yet, and no gf either. Who has time for all that when you work as much as I do? I hope everyone is doing well. Feel free to drop me a line if you feel the urge to do so. :) -Mike-

I graduated with a B.A. in Economics and Business from Kalamazoo College in 2002. I received my M.A. in Hispanic Literature from Indiana University in 2004. I am currently a Ph.D candidate in Portuguese literature and culture at Indiana University-Bloomington. I teach both Spanish and Portuguese language and culture here as well. I have been abroad for a total of 18 months in the past four years, mostly in Spain and Portugal. In fact, I just got a grant to spend summer 2007 in Lisbon, Portugal to do dissertation research. I got married in November 2004 to Sarah Rupp, who I met at Kalamazoo College. We have three dogs and a cat and recently bought a house in Bloomington. I don't make it back to Lapeer much, usually only near the holidays. I'd love to catch up with some old friends the next time I'm in town......

Hey everybody! Well, I graduated from Albion College with a degree in English and Communications and then decided that I want to be a teacher. So I moved back to Lapeer and took classes at SVSU to get that degree. In the meantime, I've been a news reporter for The County Line Reminder newspaper. I really like that since I love writing and interviewing people. In the fall, I will be student teaching freshmen English at Lapeer East in the fall. Hope all is well with all the west side hoodrats!

Hello Everyone! It's so nice to hear how you all are doing. I'm doing very well. I moved to California in July of 2001 and I am still here. I met my lovely husband Troy out here. We got married last September in Calabasas CA., and we are so blessed to have had such a beautiful wedding. He could have given me a better lastname though =) Troy is a horse trainer and also a Real Estate Investor. He too is from Michigan, which we both find very funny. He lived in Kalamazoo, and he did some work in Flint....yet we had to move all the way to California just to meet eachother! =) We both agree that being from Michigan is great, we just have no desire to live there again. Especially after living out here in sunny California. Up until yesterday, I worked for a Production Company called Anonymous Content. I was there for about 2 years, and I loved every minute of it. I had an opportunity to meet a lot of awesome people, and I also got the chance to learn a lot about the industry and how it all works. Let me just say that I had no idea how much work it really takes to put together a commercial or a music video....WOW! I am currently studying to get my Real Estate License, (which is why I had to quit my job) and I will be taking my Exam this October...yikes! I am also signed with a promotion agency, which keeps me busy and gives me an opportunity to do what I came out here to do - which is modeling. I have done promotions for Skechers 4-Wheelers, X-Box, Axe body spray, and many others. I just got booked to do a promotion in August for the new cloting line by Victoria's Secret, which is called Pink. I am really looking forward to that one! I am in the process of signing with another agency, and I will be going on auditions within the next couple of weeks! In between all of that, I have to take time out to be a good wife, and take care of my hubby! =) He is well taken care of...okay....and so am I! =) Feel free to send me an e-mail if you'd like: nmw531@hotmail.com Hope all is well with everyone. Take care and God Bless!

Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I updated my info so here is basically the last three years of my life. I graduated from Bethel College in South Bend, Indiana. I married my incredible husband, Jeff, the next fall and we now live in Mishawaka, Indiana. I have been teaching seventh grade language arts for the past three years. I continue to enjoy the everyday drama that these kids bring to my life. :) I also coach the middle school cheerleading team...again, drama. I'm working on my thesis in order to receive my masters in education this coming spring. I plan on taking this summer to do some more traveling...hopefully overseas. I look forward to seeing everyone at the ten year reunion in a few years. Take care!

Hello out there. My brother directed me to the site. It sounds like everyone is doing fairly well. As for me I took 2 semesters at Mott before deciding that I wasn't so interested in my major anymore. So instead I got married in May of 2000 and built a new house and in Dec. of 2001 had a beautiful baby girl. I started working with my dad and brother at his Print Shop in Bay City. I like it a whole lot. I hope that everyone who is engaged/ newly married is doing well. It is a big change but well worth it in my book. Hope all of you are happy and Best wishes to all.

Congratulations to all of you who have finished school and are already making something of your lives. I have been married for 4 years now(as of this Sep) He's a great guy and I was lucky to find him. We don't have any kids yet because we are both too busy with work and school.

In about a year, I will be moving to United Arab Emirates for a few where my husband is originally from. They have a great American university over there where I will finsh up my education. For all of you who have never heard of UAE, it is a beautiful country located on the northeastern side of Saudi Arabia. I have only been there once last Dec but fell in love with it immediately. I would love to hear from anyone, so email me at mcyafawi@msn.com Good luck to all of you!

Hello out there - wow, Rosalie sent me a forward to this site in March and I haven't been to see it until now, November. (I have always been a very punctual person!) It was great to here all the info on everyone, so I guess I'll add my part. I was at Grand Valley for two years with a major in Biology, intending to go on to Med school to be an obstetrician, but changed my views a little. I decided to be a midwife instead, trying to dodge some of the 'goverment run world' I guess!! So, I went to a little school outside of Kalamazoo for that, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted. So then I spent some time in Cali and Oregon to look into some schools and a different turn in life. There I found a great school and awesome home in Eugene, OR. I am back in Lapeer until after christmas, then I have to be in Eugene a.s.a.p. It's great out there and my door is always open, (when I get there that is). So if anyone thinks they'd like to see a great city full of diversity and beautiful nature, let me know, I'm serious. Oh yeah, in between all this I got married, but that wasn't the way things were supposed to go either. I've learned that know and am in the process of ending it. Unpredictability, what a wonderful asset that comes with life! Good luck to everyone.jaydsperry@hotmail.com

I'll be teaching math at a small christian school in Novi and my husband, Jay, is the athletic trainer with Pinckney High School. I'm glad to hear everyone is doing well, and would love to catch up.

Hi everyone. Med school is going pretty well. Lots of stuff to learn in very little time, but definitely worth it. Florida is pretty cool too, except for all the hurricanes. Luckily I didn't get any damage. It's pretty amazing how little will gross you out after seeing someone's insides, not to mention the smell. Anyway, gotta go study. Hope everyone is doing well.

I work as a student assistant for the Dean of the School of Business at Oakland University, and I also got an internship with Automation Alley, which is in the Oakland County Executive building off Telegraph. I just started my internship a month ago and I absolutely love it! I mostly work with events that Automation Alley puts on. It has given me so much experience and everyday I learn something new.

I highly recommend that you look into living or working abroad. We were both Park Rangers over the summer and now I work as a teacher for the Department of Ed while Matt works at a firm in the city. Send me an email if you are going to be in the City so we could meet up. Take care, and see some of you at Burns' good-bye party on September 8, 2006.

Hola, Glad to see everyone is doing great! I've been doing alot acually...I tried to join a gym and...well, bunch of other stuff...I can't remember. I have 2 children, recently divorced and I've been living in a van down by the river. I'm kidding- lol Now that I have your attention- I got married in 2001 to Julie Shemanski. She is a West grad from the class of 96 and the joy of my life. We live in Lapeer and we have no children. We're still very selfish with our time. I have been on the Lapeer City Fire Department since 10/96 and I really enjoy it! Yes, it's nice to help people, but to be honest I really enjoy the huge adrenaline rush. After pursuing a full time career in Fire Fighting I changed my major to education and transfered to UofM-Flint because of a very tough job market. As you may have guessed Fire Science credits didn't transfer and I had to start over again as a freshman...OUCH! It all worked out for the better as I have found my true calling in teaching...I love it! I recently graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in Secondary Education from the University of Michigan-Flint. (yes, I know I'm cheap) My wife is a teacher as well which works out nice. Of course due to the change in my college major she has been my sugar momma for the past four years. : ) I'm currently looking for a job teaching like 4 million others. Since I graduated I've been substitute teaching in Lapeer. I plan to attend SVSU or Eastern University to gain a masters degree in Special Education.

We met in West Africa when we were both in the Peace Corps, and now Jeff is finishing his final year of law school back in Michigan. Who knows where we'll end up, but luckily, a teacher can get a job almost anywhere. We are planning an August 2009 wedding, and I am really looking forward to living in the same place as him again!

In May 2003 I graduated from Siena Heights University in Adrian with a Bachelors degree in Art. I moved to Scranton, PA (yes, the same city that "The Office" fictionally takes place in) in 2004 to attend grad school at Marywood University. I earned my Masters degree in Art Therapy and stayed in Scranton, working at a residential treatment facility for adolescent boys for almost 2 years. I am currently looking into my next job opportunity, either as a mobile therapist for children in the adoption system, or as a group therapist on a child/adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit. I try to make it back to Michigan and visit about twice a year. I enjoy being 2 hours away from Philly and NYC, and have had some interesting experiences in Scranton (such as shaking Hillary Clinton's hand during our famous St. Patty's Day parade, and running into Mr. Belding from Saved by the Bell at the local bar).

I'm engaged to my wonder, beautiful fiance Megan Hill (from Beckley) and we are getting married Sept. 10 2005. The wedding will be here in West Virginia, with an additional reception party a few days later back there in Michigan. I am still working at Charter Communications, but now I have an office job. (yay - much scarcasim) I can't complain much though, better then some people have down here. I can't wait until the snow flies, so I can go skiing! Gotta love the mountians! Its very pretty down here, lots of things to do if you like to be outside, and thats me, so there is always something to be doing! I just bought a new car, a 2004 Kia Spectra. Its pretty cool.... ummm.. I got a puppy while back. Not much of a puppy, she's 35lbs and less then a year old. She's an Irish Setter / Lab mix, so she's huge. Not much else going on, if you feel like it, drop me a line! I'd love to hear from some of you! Take care, best of luck in all that you do!

Retired and living in Snover, MI 48472. My life has changed since leaving Lapeer.We moved to Sterling, Michigan and lived there until December, 1996 when my mother took ill and we had to be with her. She passed away in January of 1997 and we took my father (who was 92) and traved with him. In May of 1998 he passed away. At that time we were living in Brown City with him. We stayed there until July of 1999 when we purchased a home on M-46 in Snover. We got all settled in and were enjoying it when in October of 2000 our home burned to the ground and we lost everything. But I have learned that life goes on and if you look around there is someone in worse shape than you are. We spend our winters in Gulf Shores, Al., we love it there.

Hello to all. Congrats to all of us that have survived the clutches of Lapeer West High school. I am free from Lapeer, I live in Grand Blanc now. It reminds me of Lapeer a lot. (nothing to do here at all) I am currently still going out with my boyfriend of five years. His name is Joe Szwarc. I don't have any children. I am too busy being a child still. For a while after graduation, I was working in factories all over Lapeer and parts of Flint. I just started college again at Baker College, flint. I have a 3.47 in Accounting. I still hang out with Joe Rabb and I occasionally see the rest of the old gang of "freaks" as you might have said(you know who you are). I have no bad blood about it, I think it is quite funny now :P I am still rude, crude, and obnoxious. My boyfriend says that I can dress up, but I am not fit to be taken anywhere. (hehe) Well to end this begining to be a long comment on my life, I would like to make an apology to all of the teachers that had to put up with me for those four long years. I am sorry if I caused chaos and mayhem while you were working hard to teach your classes. I am so sorry if I called you weird and unusual names. Now that I look back at my times in high school I realize how much of a pain in the neck I was and in some cases still am. Just to let you know, I did learn a lot from all of you. I am now a "normal" and productive human being and I am trying my best to use the lessons you have taught me in my every day life. Thanks.

I'm currently working under a fellowship at the National Institute of Medical Informatics, or http://imedi.org/ , I get to do some cutting edge medical stuff and play with robots it's pretty fun. Even though my work is based in DC I telecommute and spend most of my time in Ann Arbor still. It's nice being out of lapeer but I still visit home often enough. Get ahold of me by email or aim sn:wablo81 if you want, take care.

First, congrats to all those successful in careers, their education, or in relationships. I just graduated from Albion College with a Bachlor's of Art in Mathematics. Now, I'm off to serve in the Peace Corps for 27 months. Hopefully, I'll be there by August, so if anyone wants to play tennis before then, I'm always around (since I don't have a job, kinda sad for a college graduate...) After that, I'm headed to Temple School of Law to study criminal prosecution. I can't wait to live out east. Anyone who would like a postcard from Africa, send me an email. Again, congratulations to all who deserve it and best of luck to everyone. cat10@albion.edu

He is doing the same thing, but now working on the civilian side. We have four children. Jennifer is 17, Jacob is 12, Brenden is 9, and Madison is 4. Next year Jen will be off to college and our youngest will start school. What the hell were we thinking. Anyway, its never a dull moment around our house. Support our Troops!

Well, I glad to read that most of you have found God and success in your personal lives. Sounds like the majority have had a pretty good go of it. If it wasn't for God I don't believe I would be here typing this now. A short overview for those who care to read on. In Jan. 90 I almost lost my life to a fith of Jack Daniels and a flight of stairs. Reputured appendix dam near killed me. After my near death exsperience and a couple of go nowhere jobs I returned to school. I went back to Vo-tech and took up metal machining. Had a pretty good run at it for about 5 years. In June 95 after a nasty break-up with my then girlfriend. I T boned a car on my Harley doing 60 Bitch run a stop sign ( Honestly, I never seen him ). Lucky for me all I totaled was my bike and not myself spent the better part of the next year rebuilding myself and the bike. Only suffered a broken left arm. Nice settlement check not worth the pain and misery. For those that wonder yes I still ride. Had another go nowhere job for about 7 years making money for someone else and taking it from behind with a smile on my face. I have been more places then I care to list. Some with grand memories and someplaces I'd like to forget. Many vacations in the Florida Keys, Traveled on a sailboat in the Bahama's for a little while. Float thru Lapeer once in a great while. (Mom still lives there otherwise I'd stay away) Jan 200? woke up one day in my early 30's and performed surgery on myself. Bent over and removed my head from my rearend and decided I needed a career. So I spun the big wheel of life and decided stripping wasn't for me figured I'd probably starve before I made my first million. Instead I choose to persue a career working on power lines. I'm very soon to be a Journeyman Lineman and enjoying my new found career. So the next time your power goes out it could be me turning it back on if your located in Michigan. I have also done Hurricane work in Florida & Texas. I current live in northeastern Michigan. Came up for the weekend and found my best friend and soul mate. Been up here ever since. So the next time any of you flatlanders find yourself in northeast michigan you may find me. But don't count on it. Just remember one thing in Life. Never drive faster then your gaurdian angel can fly. May you find happiness in whatever you do. Mitch

Hey everyone! God where do I start? Well right after high school I dumped Jason cuz he was not worth it. Unfortunately it took me 3 1/2 years to figure out that he was not for me. Now I realize how much I missed!! Then in September of 99 I moved to Rome, New York (where Woodstock was held if no one knows). I absoulutely love it here, but really miss home. I have made some great friends and I am having a blast. I work for The Bank of New York...it is a world wide banking operation where people invest their money either overnight or for a timed period to earn interst. I am an Account Administrator...how exciting! I come home every couple of months...I tried to keep in touch with some people, but it i hard!! I was really happy to come across this site...it's nice to know what some of the people are doing with themselves!! If anyone wants...feel free to email me...bmonte80@yahoo.com!!!! See ya!!

I am still a finace major, and right now i am looking to get a job in the auburn hills area for the summer doing something related to finace. It is great to be in a new part of the country, but the more that i am away to more that i realize how much i like michigan. I think that i where i will end up when i graduate, but who knows.Take care everyone and enjoy the rest of the year.

Well let's see... since I left Lapeer West I joined the Marine Corps and had 5 wondrous years there as an aircraft electrical technician on the AV8B Harrier. Had it not been for a knee injury I would still be in and probably on the drill field right now. I'm now living in Raleigh, NC. Not a bad place to be. I decided that I will now always have a Marine mentality so I am currently going through the Raleigh Police Academy. Nine months ago I found a new sport I like even better than football, I am now boxing. Boxing is a great sport that gets all my aggressions out with no problem. Apparently I have a few to take out.

Last year I graduated from Michigan Tech with Palte as my roomate for 4 straight years. Something as traumatic as that definitely effects a person mentally...but now I can officially claim that I am a Chemical Engineer. Right after college I accepted a job with International Paper down in Cincinnati, OH. I moved down there with Melissa Rossi and we have been here in Cinci since June of '03. Cincinnati is a sweet town, but I don't get a chance to see it much with my traveling sucking up about 60-80% of my time. We don't have plans to get married as of yet, but this June will be 5 years together! Who would have guessed...Speaking of traveling, I haven't had the opportunity to travel around the world as it sounds like some of you have, but I have visited my share of states here in the US. Mel and I will be moving this July to a place somewhere on the Southeast coast (Georgetown, S.C. possibly?). I will be working at a paper mill full time in July, but I don't know exactly where at yet. I suppose I'll post again when I figure that out. Currently I don't plan on working for IP for forever, I have plans to open up a micro-brewery in Traverse City with my college buddies in about a decade. Just saving up the capitol to make it happen.I make it back home to Lapeer once every other month or so to visit the family and my closest group of friends from long ago. Hopefully I'll run into some of you as my holiday visits continue. Feel free to email me, pooofy@hotmail.com.

I instead am going to go to Chicago at the International Acadamy of Design and Technology in January for Fashion Design. I can't wait! Inside my heart I always knew I wanted to be a fashion designer. Hopefully I will get my Bachelor's in 3 years. I maybe plan on moving to New York once I get my feet wet into the whole fashion industry. It's all going to be new to me, but I know it feels right. I would love to hear from anyone. Email me!!

Hello again! I just wanted to update my entry. I now live in Rochester, New York. I love our house and im starting to make new friends out here, but nothing compares to my family and friends back home. I work at Rochester General Hospital as a scheduling coordinator in the cardiac cath lab (we are in the top 100 in Cardiac Care). I never thought I could ever work in an office, but I truly do love my job. I am not married yet and have no children but I have a boyfriend of 4 yrs (who truly does deserve a metal or something for putting up with me this long!) and 2 cats and a fish.

Hi all, Since graduating, I married in 1988 to my husband, Craig. He is an Engineer for GM. We have 4 wonderful children. Alicia 14, Robert 13, Emily 11, and Andrew 9. They keep us busy, especially since we homeschool. That is how I am able to stay home and still put my teaching degree from U of M to practical use. We love it and I am learning all kinds of history !We have been doing this for 8 years. We like travelling and we've been all over the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii. The best vacations were our trips to England, Wales, and Scotland.We've lived in Sylvan Lake, Grand Blanc, and in 1996 we built our home on Roods Lake Rd. here in Lapeer. On our 8 acres we have an organic(no herbicides,pesticides,hormones,or antibiotics) mini farm. Our animal family includes 2 horses (we ride and drive them), 20 chickens(yes, we eat them), 2 dogs and 5 cats. We also raise a large garden every summer. It is truly a blessing to be a farming family. Hope to see you all at our 20 th reunion, if it doesn't conflict with our vacation to California!

Hello everyone. After High School I started working security at Delphi in Flint. While there I got deep into the bible. After I retire I want to travel the world and be a missionary. I got married on 1-3-04 to my wife Katie McCarthy, who I met 4 weeks before graduation. So 4 1/2 years together drove me to get married. I am now expecting a baby, no clue to what it is I don't want to know the sex. My Boy, hopefully, is due March 20th. I still haven't figured out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life, but in the meantime I'm working at Best Buy selling and fixing computers. I still hang out with John Gillotte, Kyle King, Paul Sierakowski, and Valerie Zemelis mostly. I miss all my friends and greatly miss wrestling!! What I wouldn't give to be back in school wrestling. Later all. GOD bless.

Almost 10 years since graduation. Doesn't seem that long. I've been living in South Dakota for over 5 years with my partner, Brad, and our two dogs, Cubby and Sophie. I've become very involved in local theater and have been in productions of Macbeth, Grease, The Boys Next Door, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and The Crucible. But since theatre doesn't pay the bills, I got my degree in Business Administration and I am a Customer Service and Systems Trainer for a communications company located in the Dakotas and Minnesota. I asbsolutely love my job and love going to work each day. Hope everyone is having great success in their lives and is doing what they love.

It is a shame that people don't update that often, but it is still nice to see what everyone is up to. As for me I am currently living in Pensacola, Florida with Chris Marshall. We have been together for five years now, but no plans for marriage as of yet. I graduated in 2004 with a degree in Communications from Oakland University, too bad that hasn't done much for me, because I can't seem to find a career. I think part of that is because I really don't know what I want to do for the rest of my life. So unfortunately, I have spent the last year as an administrative assistant at a healthcare company in Cincinnati. Cincinnati was a really tough place for me, and probably one of the biggest regrets in my life, but I did learn a lot from the experience. I am happy to have moved on to Pensacola though. So far things are wonderful down here. I am currently working part-time as a receptionist for an office building, the job is very easy, but I just want more than that. But it will do until I find something that I am interested in. Everyone is so friendly down here, and it will be wonderful not to have to deal with snow anymore! And of course the biggest perk is the white, sandy beaches are only twenty minutes away. Well, I guess that is about it for now, hopefully one of these days I will have that career that I am so desperately looking for, and I will update. Take care!

Howdy Yall, Its been a fun and exciting last couple years. I've done all the crazy things only a redneck that likes to go fast would do. I rode bulls down in ohio for two seasons, got big into import street racing, owned the fastest motorcycle at school, and spent everyday living for the minuet. Untill I became a victim of poor economy and got downsized from my job and now I'm just working for the state of Ohio on unemployment. I've already graduated from the University of Nortwestern Ohio and I'm living back home. Im trying to put my Associates degree in High Performance Automotive technology (racing stuff) to work for me, but times are slow. I'm in the process of trying to start my own buisness. It should be up and running by next summer if all goes well. If you need any assistance with building your sport compact car get ahold of me and I'll lead you in the right direction.

I received my bachelor's degree in marketing from Northern Michigan University in May and accepted a position at Perani's Hockey World in Flint. I learned a lot about the company once I was employed there and it was quite an eye opening experience, to say the least. I left that position after a few months and decided to try my hand at minor league hockey. I went to camp with the Motor City Mechanics of the United Hockey League and was offered the choice of third string goalie or being sent to a team in the Southern Professional Hockey League. I couldn't justify taking what they were offering so I decided to put my degree to use. I accepted a position with Verhalen, Inc. of Green Bay, Wisconsin where I am currently employed as an inside sales assistant. I help sell Pella windows and doors and really enjoy the job so far. I also joined a semi-pro hockey team out here called the Green Bay Deacons and am very happy with the decision. My girlfriend and I are coming up on our 4 year anniversary and are going strong. There are still no plans for marriage anytime in the near future, but we're still young and have lots of time to figure all of that out.
