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 Deb,

As always, I am so appreciative of you for keeping us in the loop and welfare of our former classmates. It is with profound sadness and condolences that I convey my expression for the sad loss of Marcia. It is difficult to see or hear of anyone departing this life, however, it is indeed more painful when a classmate that you knew passes. I am sending my condolences and prayers to the entire family of Marcia and you Deb.

Blessings and Prayers,

Oliver
