Yes! Attending Reunion

Let's see...
After the last Reunion, I worked as Press Secretary for a United States Congressman for four years, here and in DC.

For the last twenty odd years, I've worked in front of and behind the camera, Print, TV and Film, as well as a a Make Up Artist and Instructor in Modeling and Acting with McCarty Agency. i am best known for my role as Creedence, the Goblin Queen in the movie, Troll 2.
I have been a Youth Motivational Speaker for schools and various groups.

(Not current - My darling husband Randy, passed away in 2012.)

I've worked simultaneously as a writer and artist.

I met my honey at a friend's Baby Blessing, and we married about seven years ago.

We had similar backgrounds, so formed a video production company, ON FIRE PRODUCTIONS. We primarily do TV Ads and video for websites.

So fun to do what you love!

School Story:

I was outgoing and shy at the same time.

Who was your favorite East High Teacher? Why?

Mr. Edvalson, except for the dead bugs and eyeballs in the room........

Sweet and encouraging in my art...A field I chose.
He Smiled -- a lot.

Mr. Nielson - Drama, for his kind words and encouragement in the field I ended up in.

Mrs. Hammond - For making us work hard and inspiring me in my craft.

What is the funnest thing you have done recently?

What I do every day.

If you could have a "do-over" for one year or event in your life, what would it be, and why"

I wish I had had higher esteem in High School...Gotten to know more of the truly good kids that attended in those years. (Not to discount the wonderful friends that I had.)

How have your priorities changed in the last 10 years?

I love people--Family- Friends-Strangers...Hasn't changed!
Every day is precious.

Who would you most like to have lunch with?

Friends I haven't seen for awhile... Just to chat.
My family!
My friends and family gone...Too soon...Too many.

Summarize the most important things you have learned since 1969.

I look at the yearbook with appreciation...
And, Oh, my heck! I look at the teachers and realize I lam older now than they were then!

Life moves on and the best we can hope for is leaving memories of laughter and love.

I have love in my heart for so many of you.

(Forgive me when I don't remember your names...Not my forte'!)

Debbie, your name came up in a recent dialogue on the East High site. It is great to hear that you are doing well. I noticed, for the first time, that you were born Oct 29, 1950. I was born on Oct 30, 1950. We need to have a joint birthday party one of these years. All is well at the Straley household. Two great grand kids, I am still running. We get to travel a lot which is really fun. Life is good. JS
