A lot has happened in the 45 years since graduation. I don't even know where to begin. I guess I could start at the end and work backwards. I am currently retired. My hobbies are and always have been movies, music, reading, and family...not necessarily in that order. My daughters and I routinely take in concerts and musicals. Music was a huge part of my life, from high school choir to church choirs where I met my husband. I have 3 wonderful children and 6 fabulous grandchildren. Grandchildren activities are what keep me busy in my retirement. I am now a widow after 39 years of marriage. My husband was ill for many years and as his caregiver our life together was "worth it." I loved traveling and during our time together we were able to visit Mexico, Canada and drove across country twice visiting many historical sites and our Nation's famous memorials. I think one of my favorite memories was a visit to Arlington Cemetery. That reverent place touched my heart because I am a descendant of several generations of military men and my son served in Afghanistan.
I owned my own business for 5 years teaching, making chocolates and selling supplies. That experience as a small business owner helped me later as I traveled for over 10 years as a regional sales manager for a Canadian video rental company and eventually as a district manager for Blockbuster Video supervising over 100 employees in Idaho, Tyler Texas, and East Bay San Francisco. Retail management was exhausting, while raising a family, and acting as caregiver. I felt old...I looked old...and I acted old. But I was not too old to learn some new tricks. In 1994, I was finally in a place in my life where I could go back to college, so I enrolled at Boise State University (BSU) and earned an Associate's Degree in Applied Science, summa cum laude, in Legal Office Technology. My professors encouraged me to join Business Professionals of America, a mentoring organization for business majors. I competed in competitions on a State and National level in business topics and won 3 National Titles for BSU. I guess I'm glad I waited to get my education because it meant so much more to me. After college, I worked for Hawley Troxell Ennis & Hawley a large law firm in Boise, and ended my legal career as a proud employee of the Idaho Supreme Court working in the Finance Office for 14 years.
I look back at the journey from May 1969 to present day and I realize I am grateful for who I am and what I have accomplished. I have healthy, honest, giving, hardworking children who love their family. Grandchildren who appreciate the talents and gifts they have been blessed with and goals to accomplish in their lives. What more could a person ask for? I wish all my high school friends peace and a contentment with having arrived at the senior citizen years of our lives.
