roxana.donegan@optilink.us Dalton GA Retired Educator Married 2 4 1--46 years After graduation, I worked for Liberty Mutual Insurance in Kansas City. I then moved to Yegan and Associates where I met my future husband, Denny Donegan. We were married at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in February of 1965 and moved to East Moline, Illinois, for a year. From there, we moved to Atlanta where I worked for Oberdorfer Insurance and took up running and golf. My daughters Jennifer and Melissa (Missy) were born in 1971 and 1973. When the girls began school, I worked at St. Anne’s Day School and Christ the King School. I was a counselor at Beetle Rock Camp during the summers, taking kids on adventures around Atlanta in my Red VW bus. My husband was transferred in 1983, so we moved to Dalton, Georgia, where we have lived ever since.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education from Brenau College in 1987 and began teaching first grade at Westwood School in Dalton. In 1991, I earned my Master of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from West Georgia College. After 27 magical, exhausting years in the classroom, I retired four years ago.

These days I stay busy volunteering and caring for my grandchildren. I work with my church to take communion to the sick and homebound, care for the cats at the Humane Society Shelter, work for the Friends of the Library, keep the scrapbook for the retired teachers in my district, and volunteer at my grandchildren’s school. I also enjoy reading, gardening, photography, arts and crafts, and quilting. I have had the pleasure of traveling extensively in the US and abroad.

My daughter Jennifer lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with her husband James and their children Jay (10) and Molly (8). She works as a Physician Assistant at TC Thompson Hospital. I am thrilled to have her family so close. My daughter Missy has her Ph.D. in English and teaches writing at Santa Clara University in California where she lives with her husband Kevin and their children Ellis (7) and Addy (5).

I will not be at the reunion this year, but I have enjoyed reconnecting with so many old friends.

Best: I was a KEG and have fond memories of this group of friends.

Worst: I was not a very good student at Southwest, but I made up for that once I settled down and went back to school.

crouthers@verizon.net Lompoc CA retired Married 3 4 I married Jerry Crouthers June 1963. We spent 20 years in the US Air Force stationed at Edwards AFB, Ca, Eglin AFB, Fl, retiring at Vandenberg AFB, Ca.

These last 30 years I've worked for the Department of Defense at Vandenberg: in the accounting office for the Services Squadron for 23 years; then moved to the Comptrollers Squadron as the Nonappropriated Funds Financial Analyst before retiring in March 2010. Since then we've spent 2 months on the road traveling in our motor home seeing the sights in the western US.

We do like to travel. A couple of years ago we took a transition cruise across the Pacific from Alaska with stops in Russia, South Korea, Japan and then ending up in China.

We have three wonderful children and four grandchildren. Our oldest daughter is a partner in a booking business in Santa Maria, Ca, our son works for UPS, and our youngest daughter works for the Mission Hill
Services District as the bookkeeper.

Life keeps us busy and we look forward to more traveling in the future.

chuck15@mindspring.com Kansas City MO Retired home.mindspring.com/~chuck15 Married 2 1 3 Navy Jag 4 years. I retired from the practice of law in 2005. At the time of the last reunion, I had planned to become a builder of harps in my retirement. However, in 2004, I became interested in machine embroidery and that is my side business at this time.
Through the years, I have played in folk groups, bluegrass bands and rock bands. I play the harp, guitar, Native American flute and my latest passion - the ukulele. Three years ago, 5 of us started the Kansas City Ukesters, and we now have over 100 members. If you go to www.kcuke.com/photos.html you will see links to YouTube videos of me doing some of my original songs. It's all about having fun.
I am married to Mary Lu Johnston, niece of the Southwest HS Latin teacher, Mary Johnston (small world). I have 2 children and one grandson.
It's all a very fuzzy memory at this point in time.

kkearny@earthlink.net Neenah WI Homemaker/volunteer Married 4 4 (another due in November) 1 After Southwest days I graduated from William Jewell College then moved to St. Louis where my first job was in public relations and development for St. Vincent's Hospital. Married Frank Kearny (KU '65 grad) and his job with Gulf Oil took us to Chicago, then Houston, then back to Chicago. We had three children while in Glenview, IL then moved to Neenah, WI in 1978 where he started a packaging company, Banner Packaging, and we had a fourth child. He sold his company to the Bemis Corp. a few years ago and has since retired.
We still live in Neenah but spend time at our cottage in Green Lake, WI and enjoy having our grandkids there for "Camp Kearny" each summer. We also have an apartment in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago and enjoy what the big city offers.
Volunteer work is diminishing but I am still involved with church, a free dental clinic, and several local philanthropic groups. Primary interests include travel, biking, x-country skiing, knitting, book club, and I'm a beginning golfer. Life is good.
I look forward to learning about the different paths our lives have taken...

Thank you to the reunion committee for such a great job organizing! Almost decided to come but fear not many would remember me! My parents moved to Chicago my freshman year in college therefore I didn't have opportunity to stay connected with high school friends.
Have a great time!
Best: pajama parties, English class,
wearing my orange and black satin
jacket to football games,
"ditching" lunch when someone had
a vehicle, passing notes that were
elaborately folded into squares...

Worst: boyfriend dramas

Redmond WA Retired Married 2 2 1 Retirement is mankind’s greatest invention! Ann and I are having a wonderful time enjoying life and doing the things we never had time for while working and raising a family. I went to KC Junior College after graduating from Southwest, then on to KU. After our graduate schools in 1966, Ann and I married, then moved to the Seattle area where we have lived ever since. I worked on several airplane programs at Boeing, both commercial airliners and military aircraft. One of my last assignments was working with a Russian aircraft company on the design of a new Russian airliner. I retired from Boeing in 2006 as the senior manager of advanced projects. I’m currently co-authoring a book with a Russian friend – the book will be published in 2011. Ann and I enjoy being with our wonderful grandchildren but we do not see them often enough! We travel frequently to visit our families and to see the world. I’m looking forward to the 50th reunion celebration in 2011! Working on the Sachem staff my junior and senior years is my best memory.
