Welcome NHS Wildcats and Guests to the Official Website of Northwestern High School’s Class of 1966 Hyattsville, Maryland www.nhs1966.com
Our site offers classmates a FREE ”Do It Yourself” opportunity to reconnect. Begin with the link to the right - "First Visit Here?" "Click Here to Register" - then follow instructions. And remember, YOU choose to make your info available to the Class or Class Administrator only. All former classmates are welcome, whether you were part of the ‘66 Wildcat track in elementary school, junior high or any portion of high school.
The whereabouts of 100+ classmates still need to be validated. We’ve located some; however, they haven’t responded to search mailings. Although a piece of mail may have found your mailbox, that doesn’t mean we know you’ve actually been found unless you verify your current address. You’d be surprised how many other individuals share your exact name and approximate age.
Take a moment to look over the site for Event Announcements, Featured Class Member Bios, Memorial Photos, Photo Links, Web Site Links and more!
This site is operated and funded by members of our class.

After graduating I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. Attended Prince George's Community College but dropped out. Then I sold encyclopedias door to door in Tampa, Florida (don't recommend this as a career). By age 19 I was in trouble with the law (nothing major, but enough to get my attention). I then attended Montgomery College for 1 year majoring in Visual Communications Technologies. I was doing well but did not like what I was studying and did not go back for year 2. By age 21 I became an auto trimmer (auto upholsterer) apprentice. After 8 months of on the job training with Sure Fit Seatcovers, I quit and my partner and I opened our own shop in Arlington, Va. We had a falling out and went our separate ways. I then went to work for Rayco for 1 1/2 years followed by Rosenthal Chevrolet. In 1975 I moved to Sheridan, WY. You're probably wondering about that move. Well it had something to do with a woman. And that is one long and complicated story. Went back to college (Sheridan College) for a semester but I was broke and didn't like my boss where I worked part-time and so decided to open my own upholstery shop. So with $50 and 10 yds. of black vinyl fabric, I did. Lucky for me someone needed something done in that black vinyl fabric. Within a couple of years I had 4 employees and the largest shop in town. The boom economy in Wyoming, based on the coal industry, went bust in 1981 and so did my business. I then went to work for Hawkins and Powers aviation in Sheridan for about a year before deciding to move to Arizona. I have lived and owned my current business in Sedona, AZ since 1983 (Ed Day Upholstery). A part of my business is designing and custom building of furniture which presents interesting challenges. Can't think of any other place I would want to live or any other kind of work that I would like as much.
