I began searching for fellow grads for our June '07 mini reunion.It has become addictive.Since I've started a new job,my free time has shrunk!,but I'm still dedicated to finding as many grads for the upcoming reunion as possible.
I ask everyone I find the same basic questions:
What was your major at A&D?Did you go to college and where?major?
What jobs have you had?What are you doing now?
I also ask personal questions,like are you married?how long?kids?
I'm nosy.I'd say most were happy to spill the beans.
To date,I've spoken on the phone to 78 people!
Here are some interesting stats:
43 are married,almost 50% for over 20 years!I find that heartening in this day and age.
16 haven't found the right person yet,5 are divorced,and 4 have deceased spouses.
Only 18 are working in the art field.Most of the 78 people started out in the art business and ended up in totally different fields.There's a couple of lawyers,a pediatrician,quite a few teachers,2 restauranteurs, a handful of psychiatric social workers,a postal worker and a FEDEX guy!
Some are searching for a new direction after ending long careers.
What they all have in common are wonderful memories of A&D,and excited anticipation for our 35th reunion in June!
The hunt for grads continues.........If anyone has any leads,email me at email@example.com
There are still many who are proving difficult to find!
