Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Janice Thomas (Beckley)


My life has truly been blessed. That is not to say that every day has been a picnic. I finally grew up and figured out what was important and it wasn't what I was thinking at l8 years of age. John Grillo said it best. We were all so fortunate to grow up in Dumas with caring role models who were character builders.

In spite of my parents encouraging me to get an education, I went to WT and did it my way which meant I would do it when I was ready. I regret that because when I was 11 years old in the 5th grade at East Ward Elementary, I decided my career would be working with students who had multiple disabilities. I never gave up that dream and when I was 44, I graduated from Oklahoma Panhandle State University and started teaching at Guymon Junior High. At that age, it was a struggle to balance three kids and all their activities, a job, cooking, washing, church activities, and studying. For the first two years I taught, I drove two nights a week to Northwestern Oklahoma State University to get degrees to teach hearing and vision impaired.

I remained in that classroom for l8 years. It was an awesome dream come true. Working with students that loved life and loved every day of it changed me. Everyone should be glad that I was there, because my students made me a better person.

Then in September of 2008, God started to prepare me to retire. I didn't want to leave, but even with helpers I had, the job was becoming too much physically and lifting
students and their wheelchairs was getting harder. It was a job I loved. May of 2009 was my last time there.

Then God opened new doors, and I was offered a job just three hours a day, two days a week teaching adult basic education to women who didn't get a high school diploma. The first day was an eye opener. These seven women didn't enjoy a childhood or education like we did. They lived in many foster homes, had been victims of incest and rape,
had drug and alcohol addictions, had been in prison, and one had lost her three children. It goes on and on. From this class, a ministry has opened up for me. We meet every Monday for four hours and scrapbook their lives now that they are living on the right track. Their lives are changing and God is allowing me to be part of it.

Now, I spend time with my husband of 38 years. He collects and restores classic cars. We spend time going to car shows and relaxing at our cabin at Ute Park, New Mexico. When I have time, I like to scrapbook my children, their families, and my grandson.

I have never been this busy, but I'm not too busy to attend this reunion.

I am looking forward to seeing the Class of 1965. I think I have told my whole story, and I'm looking forward to hearing where life has taken my classmates.

I almost forgot to tell you that I am writing my first book. You will never see it on the Best Seller list. I hope my children think it is priceless, because it is their inheritance. It is not titled yet, but it is what I learned from Sam Russell. His portrait hangs in my living room. Does anyone remember Sam Russell?
