Comments:

I've moved around a-lot, in the Roanoke area mostly. I have been in Ferrum for the last two years(after leaving Roanoke after my second divorce-oh joy!) I left the State Health Dept. in 1996(after 10 years service) and started my own Soil Consulting business. Did very well with that until the housing slump hit. Got a wild hair and decided a career change might be in order. I went to Arkansas State University(Newport Campus and trained to drive 18-wheelers) Drove for USA TRUCKING all over the The Midwest & Southeast mostly. Well that was fun for a while but not my cup of tea longterm anyway. I have had a-lot of ups and downs over the last couple years but as usual the good lord has seen me through. I've stepped back into my career of 22 years(environmental health) with a new job working for a non-profit agency known as the Southeast Rural Community Assitance Project, Inc.(I know it's a mouthful). We in a nutshell provide funding and grants for folks without indoor plumbing and safe water supplies and sewage disposal. YES folks there are still people in this country with-out those basics. In fact percentage wise the state of Virginia ranks SECOND in the nation of those without these basic services. Any way it is rewarding work to say the least-- and has provided some much needed stability in my life.
Hope everyone is doing well I really enjoyed my years at Lafayette I think of yall often!!

As of January 3, 2011 I have changed jobs. I now work for the EPA as a Source Water Protection Specialist.I was unable to make the re-union for a few reasons--looks like I missed a great time. Hope to make one of the get togethers that come up now and then. I've managed to stay in touch with a few class mates here and there and will try to keep it up. Thanks to all who keep the web site going!
