Memories Before High School (neighborhood, elementary & jr high, etc.):

Through the 3rd grade I attended Central School and lived across the street from Wray Jr.High, which was a favorite place to rollar skate. Also every afternoon the ice cream truck parked there when school was dismissed. Before the 4th grade, we moved across town, and I started Victory School. I made dear friends, many of whom I'm still close to today. I remember 10 cent Friday afternoon movies, the yearly Christmas assembly with ancient films and Santa giving out candy on the stage, the cigar truck that made deliveries to Mr. Lingerfelt, and Halloween carnivals. I remember walking home from school, often stopping at Judy Kenley's house. Around the eighth grade age , we'd often gather on weekend nights in Judy Mauney's garage and play Spin the Bottle and Five-Minute Date. Innocent fun!

Special School Memories:

I have such great memories from high school--Every afternoon and on Wednesday nights, we'd go to Hamp's and just hang out. ( How lucky we were to have such a place.) There were ballgames, dances, slumber parties and beach trips. Great friends and great times! At school our homeroom was always special -10th with Mr. Nelson, we bonded (Zerro); 11th- fun with Mr. Tester; senior- some of us had to endure Mr. Kilby, but still lots of laughs....Loved my homeroom buddies!.....One sad memory is when Jackie Craig died. I was just getting to know him, and then in one February night, he was gone. So unaccustomed to tragedy, I didn't know how to handle my feelings of grief. I don't guess any of us did.

Since School...:

Went to the University of SC; taught first year in York, SC.; married Richard Vlaservich in 1964; had 2 children; divorced after 15 years; continued to teach in Gastonia, mainly 8th and 9th grade English at Grier Jr. High; retired in 1997...Now travel (usually take 2 big trips a year....gotta go while health and money hold out), volunteer at Crisis Assistance Ministry, attend Redeemer Lutheran Church, help with a tutoring program there, stay busy doing whatever.....

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite classmates, Doris Goodnight! I thought I'd be the first by sending my wishes a day early, but I see several classmates beat me to the punch! The story of my life! Hope to see you at our 60th Class of 60 Reunion on September 23 & 24, 2020!

If it weren't for church directory pictures, there would be none at all.
