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.

Life has been good, but “Growing old gracefully” is not one of my favorite phrases.
After NHS I went to Maryland and graduated in Aeronautical & Aerospace Engineering. While going to school, I started working at the Naval Ordnance Laboratory in Silver Spring. Decided I liked the work and stayed and I’m still working for the Navy today, currently at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Bethesda. I have spent most of my career managing the electromagnetic signatures of our surface ships and submarines.
Picked up Tennis and it has been a big part of my life. Have been on USTA teams and in tournaments for many decades. I still play competitively, but it is getting harder every year to stay in shape and to play hard. I ran the Maryland State Hardcourt tournaments for over ten years. I also met my wife while playing tennis.
My wife Joyce is retired from a certain Federal Security Agency (not allowed to say which one!) She currently is a program manager and works for Scitor Corp.
Daughter Kara is doing well. She is attending Boston University and is majoring in International Studies.
We are all active members of the Riverdale Presbyterian Church. It is only about a mile from NHS.
Joyce and I are big Terp fans. We have season tickets for the basketball and football and support a lot of the other teams as well.

"I have to tell you that I LOVE your site! I have used it to plan several reunions now and I so appreciate your efforts and support. Thanks so much!"
"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research. My advice to all the classes out there - give yourself a break including your wallet, and do the organization yourself with the fine help of this awesome program. Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes."
