Comments

I have three grand children from my daughters. My precious grandson who just turned three, is my joy. His name is Ayden Oliver! I retired after thirty-six years of working in the education field as: teacher; building assistant for student affairs/Skiles Junior High; assistant principal/Skiles Junior High; principal, professional development coordinator; administrative leadership support team member, and currently as an educational consultant. I have always valued working with youngsters, and anyone who is seemingly in need of improvement or assistance. I believe that has been my passion or calling.

School Story

I have no specific stories, I have many precious memories of academic, humanistic, and athletic stories that I relish. Persons such as Roy Houston, Joe Martin, Bill Tomlinson, Steve Jesser, and so many others that I can't enumerate upon. I was surrounded by many friends and acquaintances who helped to mold my life and character. Those of you who are wondering why you don't see your names, you were quite instrumental in my life. I thank you for whatever part you played. Thank you for the fun, good, and not so good times. You have to classify your role, not me.

Dear Diane,

Happy blessed birthday wishes to you. I hope that you are able to enjoy all of your days, including the challenging days of this pandemic. Well, I would like to wish for you the best thoughts for a joyous and memorable birthday celebration. You have always been very special since I have known you. For that I am very grateful to you. Your genuine and true self was revealed as a youngster who cared for people without judgement of external factors that others might have employed. You have made a difference in other lives and I trust that the same appreciation that you displayed for others will convey their love and appreciation for you. I hope that all of the good that you have provided for others will come back to you ten folded. All the best for great health, family, friends, and safety that you deserve. Have a blessed celebration. Enjoy your special day on November 30th. Happy Thanksgiving and other impending holiday wishes.

Special joys and blessings for a sterling celebration!

Dear Harriett,

Good morning, happy blessed birthday wishes to you. I would be very remiss if I did not acknowledge your birthday. I missed seeing you during the Joe Butch Martin Scholarship Fundraiser this year. I know that it was impossible for us to have anything due to the Pandemic, however, you were still missed. I hope that you and your entire family are well. I do keep in touch with your cousin John. He periodically lets me know that you are well. Enjoy your special day and all the best to you. God Bless and keep you! Much love and blessings!
