I attended Louisiana Tech until 1983. I contracted a severe case of shingles my spring quarter and was unable to contiue school. I moved to West Monroe where I met my husband in 1984. We have a big family. In 1988 we moved to Texas and have remained there since. I helped take care of my mom until her passing in 2003. In 2005 I returned to school at East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, Texas and in 2008 I received my Bachelors of Applied Science Degree. Today I am a permanent Substitute teacher at Carthage High Scool. I love what I do and I love the students. I am actively involved in my church. I also volunteer on a regular basis with Heart's Way Hospice in the bereavement department. I also volunteer at our local Crisis Center. I return to Ruston at least once a year as my Dad and stepmom, Ralph and Janis McVay, live on Hwy 80 East there in. Until recently my grandmother lived in the Crossroads Community of Farmerville, LA . My Dad's sister, Betty Bryan and her daughter and son-in-law Angela and Robbie Jenkins live in Ruston with their son Jacob.

School Story:

The best thing I remember about my 2 years at RHS is the Lady Techsters basketball team won the National Championship my senior year and Kim Mulkey interned during my physical education class and I got to work with her. I didn't grow up in Ruston and I didn't come to the school until my junior year but I was welcomed by so many people. It was a very hard move for me. My Dad had been in the Air Force so we moved quite a bit. At one point we stayed with his parents in Delhi where I attended the elementary my 1st and 2nd grade years. Then I attended a tiny school, Logtown Middle School (it has since closed down), my 3rd through 9th grade years. I then was homeschooled until moving to Ruston. I loved RHS and always will. Thank you to the class of 1981 for making it this way.

Never thought we would one day be related. My cousin married your brother and he has been an awesome husband and father to her. You are still missed today.
