Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Carol Linkous (Wall)


It's hard to believe it has been 49 yrs. since graduation and we are having our 50th reunion in 2014.

As some of you'll know, I had a spinal cord tumor (T-5-7) in 2003 and was operated on May 2, 2003. This operation kept me away from home for 2 mos. with rehab and 28 treatments of radiation. I, unfortunately, had to retire from my work at Virginia Tech with disability. I was able to retire from the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences with 30 years of service. I am now at home and am on Medicare earlier than planned. I am able to walk short distances on a walker and am still doing PT twice a week. In 2010 I fell trying to go out to my patio and broke my ankle on my good leg and ended being away from home from April 16 until June 9. I sure am tired of being away from home. I try to keep as active a possible. Since my operation we have traveled quite a bit. Don and I even went to Aruba.

Don and I live in Blacksburg with our one cat April. Don is still selling insurance and plans to keep on trucking to possibly the age of 70. Since he has hit 70, now he will retire as of December 31, 2013, but says he will still go into work this winter. We have two grandchildren. Spencer divorced and remarried in July 2012 and recently enlisted in the Army and will graduate from Fort Leonard Wood, IL on April 10, 2014. His wife's name in Ardis. Byleigh is now 9 and in the 4th grade down in North Carolina. Spencer belongs to my youngest daughter, Donna and Bryleigh belongs to Tammy, my oldest daughter.

It was good to see the classmates that I saw in 2009 and look forward to seeing more in 2014. Take care you guys. Looking forward to seeing you'll soon. Love ya, Carol

45th REUNION RECAP

What a wonderful time we had seeing each other again in some cases after 45 years! Sixty-three classmates attended one or more of the reunion events on August 14-15.

We had a great turnout of classmates and guests at each event: Golf – 11, Smithfield Tour – 17, Friday social at Bull & Bones – 64, Saturday Picnic at Sutphin Farm – 78 and Saturday evening BBQ at German Club Manor – 63. Two classmates attended their 1st reunion since graduation and nearly a dozen have a perfect attendance for all reunions, thus far.

While the majority of us still reside in Virginia and nearby states, Ted Hurst traveled all the way from Colorado, Kurt Myers from Arizona , Jean Michael (Shick) from Maine and Carol Stockton (Mackinder) made it from Michigan to attend the 45th!

We collected some $4001 in fees and contributions for the reunion, which covered expenses of $3770, leaving us a reserve of $231 to be applied to our 50th Reunion activities.


We were able to locate (verified email or postal mail addresses) all but 21 members of the Class of 1964 and invited each of them to the 45th. We’ll do our best, with your help, to maintain and update contact information plus find the missing “21” between now and our 50th Reunion. Setting dates and location for the 50th soon and keeping in touch via the website and email, will hopefully allow for even greater classmate attendance in 2014.

Fifty-seven of you have registered on the website and hopefully will check back often for new information and keep your email address current thru 2014.

Reflecting on years past, it seems that our class was “closer” than most and for many of us each reunion brings us even closer … renewing old friendships and adding new ones… appreciating each other to a greater extent as the years go by. Anyone who attended can tell you that there were a lot of smiling faces and laughter and just warm feelings … a truly nice, personally rejuvenating experience. We spent much time reminiscing, including remembering and missing classmates who could not attend. It felt really special to be together again.
