February 10, 1960 Business Store Manager outletstore@healthyback.com Married 4 Brown eyed girl, Lucy in the Sky w/diamonds, Hey Jude just to name a few. 2012-10-05 19:35:48
I have had a very interesting but satisfying life.  I have been married to the same man that I met right after High school... but of course like all marriages we have had a lot of ups and downs in the beginning.  We even went through a rough patch and got divorced.  But as life would have it, we must have been meant to be together so we worked on it and re-married again a few years later.  Our kids (David, Jonathan, Nathan and Maggie) are of all ages.  David is 28 married with 4 kids of his own. Jonathan is 21 married with 1 boy with another one the way (due in May).  Nathan is only 10 and Maggie is just 19 months. She was our biggest surprise of all.  We have grandchildren that are older than our youngest daughter, which is fun in it self... but very hard to explain to those who don't us.  I lost my father 2 years ago in April and Maggie showed up a few months after that and she has been the biggest blessing to the whole family.  Jr and I have been together a total of 29 years (boy that does sound like forever) and through it all we have been truly blessed with our kids and grandkids.   

I am presently the Business Manager of a local retail/specialty bed and back store and have been for the past 4 years and I love it.  I work closely with each and every customer to make them feel better and help them find just the right merchandise for them.  I have always been a people person and that makes having this type of job ideal for someone like me. 

Our Son, David received his degree in cooking from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute in AZ and is currently working for the Ritz Carlton in DC.  Jonathan works for Fairfax County and both of them and their families live very close so we get to see them all every chance we get.  This makes it nice since so many families move away and never get to see their kids and grandkids when they move out.  

August is just around the corner and I really can't believe that it has been 30 years since graduation.  Time does fly when you're "having fun".  I can't wait to see everyone at the reunion!

I hope everyone is having a great summer!

I had hoped to make the reunion but plans have changed.  My daughters are going to be in a play the weekend of the reunion so I'll be watching my future Thespians perform!

I still live in the Northern Virginia area with my husband, Mike, and daughters, Stephanie and Rebecca.  I keep busy with work and lots of activities!  I'm on the Board of Directors for the Autism Learning Center, a Deacon at Centreville Presbyterian Church, a Girl Scout leader, and involved with various committees with the school PTA.   There's never a dull moment - that's for sure!

Have a great time at the reunion and I hope to see you at the next one!

Susie

March 24, 1960 Mom/Pianist/Technical Writer www.techscribenow.com Married 3 We May Never Pass This Way Again (Seals & Crofts) 2012-08-06 14:00:53

Hey, everybody!

I, too, am shocked that 30 years has gone by already! It feels like it was only yesterday we were graduating ... I won't be at the reunion, but it sounds like a good time will be had by all. The Web site is great, and I can hardly wait to see the pix from the party! I've been having fun reading up on people – we’re a good bunch!

About 20 years ago, I changed my name from “Sheryl Ann Newton” to “Chela Newton” (I always preferred my nickname anyway). I've been married for 10 years and have three boys: 9-year-old graphic artist and Taekwondo enthusiast, Tyrel (just got his Red Belt!); and 3-year-old twins, Lars and Derik (both into Legos and music like their big brother, and in general keeping me on my toes enough that I don't need a gym membership).

My husband, Scott, is a Senior software engineer with Qualcomm who loves to go backpacking in the Eastern Sierras. He also loves to build things (furniture and whatever we need around the house) and has been collecting LGB garden trains for about 20 years. The biggest project to date has been a two-track (soon to be four) outdoor layout in the backyard. Needless to say, our boys have a lot of fun with their dad.  Scott hopes one day to build us a house on acreage we own south of Yosemite (vacation now or retirement later depends on that old standby: $$$). His big family (6 siblings) lives mostly in Southern California and are wonderful in-laws (when I got married I went from 0 sisters to 4!).

My degree was in Music (from the University of Oregon), so of course, I’ve had quite the variety of “day jobs” over the years, somehow always involving writing, both creative and technical. I still play the piano and compose, although not as much as I would like. I taught piano for 15 years and did casual gigs for 20, but am on hiatus to focus on Da Boyz until they’re a bit older. (The Jazz pianist Joanne Brackeen, who took 15 years off to raise her 5 kids, is my inspiration for making it all work.) For the last 9.5 years, I’ve been a stay-at-home mom, with the occasional technical writing gig thrown in. Recently I finished writing two children’s books that I’m sending around to publishers, as well as working on getting some original poetry published.  

Being a mom has been the hardest, most fulfilling job I’ve ever had! And being an older mom has been both an advantage and a challenge: I accomplished a lot (but not all) of my goals before kids. And it’s a good thing I still have a lot of energy (see above comment about not needing a gym membership).  Waiting 20 years to get married and then having kids also means I’m on my third childhood – pretty fun!
 
Have a great time at the reunion; I hope to make it to the next one! - Chela

Hi, Everyone!
I'm technically not an alumnus since I didn't graduate from MVHS, but I did go to school with many of you between 2nd and 9th grades.

Following our freshman year at Mt. Vernon, my family moved to Brunswick, GA, where I graduated from high school and began a career as a secretary with the Federal Government.  In 1983, my sister and I returned to Northern Virginia and shared an apartment in Arlington.

In 1989, I married my wonderful husband, Rick, and we moved to Manassas, VA.   In 1991, our first child, Dennis, was born, and I became a stay-at-home mom.  Kelly came along in 1993.  Dennis will be a junior and Kelly a sophomore at Osbourn Park High School this school year.

Rick has been in food service all of his career, in several different capacities, but primarily in business dining, with companies such as Aramark and Compass Group.  He is currently employed as a District Manager for Guest Services.

It's been great reading people's "bio's" on this website.  I have thought about so many of you over the years and wondered, "What ever happened to 'so and so'?"  Nice to have "caught up" with some of you!

I'd love to hear from any of you who might remember me!
