Yes! Attending Reunion
I was a member of the graduating class of:

June 1969


Worked and attended college from 1970-1976 Worked 2 jobs until I met and married and relocated to Houston TX.We had 2 children and after last stepson finished High School we sold Home and relocated with our young sons to West Bend WI where we currently reside.
Went back to school in 1996 and graduated with High honors with Degree in Horticulture in 1999. Only took me 30 years to get it done. My Motto Never Give Up; I can do all things through Christ who Strengthens me. This is what got me through because I wanted my sons to know they could succeed at school / life as long as they kept working at it.

School Story

Loved Football and Basketball Games Pep Rallies and get together s at Big Boys following games. I actually lived in South Division's Area and so took City Bus to activities. After one fateful basketball game my girlfriend Kathy and I found ourselves on the bus with an entire bus full of former Walker schoolmates the bus window was opened and Kathy and i kept doing Pulaski cheers and the kids from South were none to happy with us ( i didn't know I could be pushed that far out the window without falling to the ground) and the bus driver threatened to throw us all off the bus; so everyone settled down; it was winter after all and no one wanted to walk. After that game we hung back and waited longer for visiting schools fans to leave. It's fun to remember now i just wish Kathy Pearson were her to remember it with me.
