    CLASSMATE DEMOGRAPHIC SURVEY

    While we were still in high school a national publication ranked our school among the top ten public high schools in the U.S. We all knew that we were privileged to be part of a very special group during our years at Maine. We wondered what path our own life would follow after high school - and what good things might be in store for our classmates and friends. We wondered if all of the stuff we were struggling to learn was really important. After high school, paths diverged and occasionally crossed. Communication with classmates was not as good as we hoped it would be. Fifty years later we think back and wonder not only "whatever happened to good old so-and-so," but also, what in general, did our classmates end up doing with their lives?

    Thanks to the 116 classmates who responded before our reunion. It's not too late to add yourself to our survey which will be periodically be summarized on this web site. This survey, while strictly optional, will provide us all with a snapshot summary of classmate journeys over the past half century. For example, we've so far learned that 62% of those responding have retired from their work careers (maybe that's why they had an extra 5 minutes to complete their survey!). The biography which you enter into your reunion profile (please do so now if you have not yet done this) gives your personal update to classmates. Responses to this survey will be used in a different way to create a broader picture of our class that can be presented in summary form at our reunion. Individual specifics from this survey will not be shared with anyone.

    Thank you for your participation!
