Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Peggy Hunter Port


After graduating from college (ASU), not having a job, and really wanting to move out of my parent’s home, I became a stewardess for Delta Airlines. I met and married my beloved husband of 45 years, Allan Port. Allan is an attorney, and is currently the General Counsel for a financial institution in Houston.
After flying, I indulged myself with sculpting for a few years, but felt the need for a real job. I received a Masters in Public Health from the University of Texas. I later co-edited a book on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. I have been a professional artist for many years, and am finally doing what I really love to do, creatively.
Allan and I have two children, Hunter and Maggie who both live in Houston. Hunter is an attorney and Maggie is in a Masters Degree Program in Architecture. We also have an adorable grand-dog, Maverick. We all enjoy traveling and outdoor activities.
Five years ago, I was diagnosed and treated for ovarian cancer. This has dramatically impacted our lives. I currently serve on the board of M. D. Anderson and work to support ovarian cancer research.
I am wishing everyone a great reunion and it has been great to reconnect with some of my Jonesboro classmates during the past few years.
Peggy
P. S. My BFF since pre-kindergarten, Susie Brown James, will probably need to type and e-mail this as I am techno-stupid.
