April 24, 1961 Houston TX Accountant Married 3
Apparently, I have been on the missing persons list for the last 30 years so many of you may not remember me.  I moved to Pensacola from Houston for my junior/senior years of high school.  I remember everyone at Tate being very welcoming and friendly to the new girl.  My family moved to California my freshman year of college while I was attending Oklahoma State University. I tranferred to Pepperdine University my sophomore year and graduated in 1983 with a BS in Accounting.  I met my husband Bruce while working for Exxon in Thousand Oaks, CA. We have now been married almost 23 years.  We moved to Houston in 1986.  We have 3 terrific daughters Annie (17), Ellie & Laura (16) who all attend the same high school I started at in Houston before coming to Tate.  I currently work for the University of Houston Foundation.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the 30th reunion.  Sean just found me this week (so I am no longer MIA) and we already have a trip planned for the same weekend.  I hope you all have a wonderful time.  Maybe I will be able to make it for the 40th (better late than never).  Many thanks to Sean for organizing this event!

June 23, 1960 Mt. Juliet TN Church Office Administrator / School Bus Driver Married 3
Soon after graduation, I moved to St. Louis MO and attended St. Louis Comm Coll at Meramec. When my brother decided to go back to college, he and I moved to Gainesville, FL where he attended UF and I attended Santa Fe Comm Coll and I received my AA - graduated with a Cum GPA of 3.85 - what a ditz I was in high school. I did a short stint at UF, but found that I hated a big school atmosphere.

After that, I moved back to P'cola, attended UWF (seeking my BS in Math Education - 3 years towards my BS degree), I got a job at the Pensacola Airport Gift Shop as Ass't Mgr. In April 1985, I met my husband, Bobby at the airport (Escambia HS Class of '83 - yes, I robbed the cradle - he was 19 and I was 24) and being "totally in love" I decided to quit college and get married - I haven't looked back since.

We married March 14, 1987 and have been in love and married 22 years (for our anniversary he compiled a 16-minute video commemorating our life together - pictures and songs and dialogue - he is such a romantic).

We have been blessed with 3 very active, witty, handsome, animated and loving boys: Bobby, III is 21, Daniel is soon to be 18 on July 12th, and Kyle is 12.

I was a stay-at-home Mom for years. I have been Room Mother, Team Mom, Teacher's Assistant, Sunday School Teacher, SS Superintendent, VBS Leader/Teacher/Director, Fellowship Director, Sr. High Youth Group Leader, Scout Mom, a volunteer wearing many hats supporting my children - whatever their passion, I supported 100%. They have been involved in Football, Baseball, Wrestling, and Basketball.

Through job changes/transfers (husband - Bell Systems Contracts, and automotive retail) we have spent our married life living in Pensacola, Jacksonville, Daytona, Orlando, Gainesville, Valdosta GA, back to Pensacola, Panama City, Keene/Westmoreland NH, and now in Mt. Juliet TN. (I have a lot of ancestry in TN and feel as if I've "come home to Tennessee." I love TN and don't ever want to leave.)

While growing up I experienced a lot of moving with my Dad's job (contract engineer) and we ended up back in our hometown of P'cola at Tate for my 9th grade year. My Dad traveled with his job and we stayed in P'cola so I could attend one high school and graduate. I always wanted to marry a guy who had been in the same hometown all of his life. I married Bobby, who had been born and raised in P'cola, and viola! one month after the wedding he was transferred to Jacksonville, and so we moved and kept on moving for years. God knew he needed the right woman to accept the gypsy life.

For the past 5 years I have been the Office Administrator at our church doing everything that needs to be done to make Sunday a worshipful experience.

A year-and-a-half ago I decided to learn how to drive a school bus for extra income. I absolutely love driving those dear babies to school. And, believe it or not, a bus is easier to drive than your personal car, mirrors are wonderful! I can't believe it, my husband still won't let me put banana (bubble) mirrors and side mirrors on my van!

I have experienced many ups and downs in this life, but I would not trade one moment. I have learned to appreciate the moments in life that defines you and to either let you be ruled by them or to rule them. "Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things." Sound advice to deal with anything that comes your way...

Have a blast at the 30th Year Reunion! I attended the 10th and had a wonderful time. I won't be able to attend the 30th cause it's my son's 18th birthday and we're celebrating his milestone birthday. Hope to see pictures on the website.

In the faith and in the Word and in Christ,
<><, Tanya (Ellis) Reynolds

Personal note to Scott Hines: You profess to read religious books, etc. and are willing to debate all philosophies, and are a devout Atheist... The One book you need to read, digest, and let into your heart and soul is the Bible... it is the One inerrant Word of God. He loves you and forgives you. It's just your heart that hardens your thoughts against Him. Put Satan behind you and Jesus in your sight and eternity is yours... Just a thought... In Christ, <><, Tanya (Ellis) Reynolds

May 05, 1961 Abbeville SC Servicing the customer Single 1
Hello Aggies!

Thanks Sean, and others, for all the efforts to organize this. I haven't kept up well with any of my '79 class-mates, so this should be a neat experience.

Life has been great, and getting better. My 8th grade daughter Brandi and I live in Abbeville, SC. Monsanto brought me here in '92; spun-off Solutia in '98; and the nylon business just sold on Jun 4, so I'm with Ascend Performance Materials now.

The past ~15yrs have afforded the chance to see a lot of the world, but most importantly the realization that THIS is it! It may be too laid-back for most, but the Carolinas are home now. No doubt, I can't get Red Snapper, or even a decent shrimp around here, but the trade-offs are great: no crowds, plenty of elbow room and some of the best single-track in the world. (Some days I quit my job and just go ride the bike ...)  

Brandi is a beautiful, happy, confident child; never been really sick a day in her life. Ultimately, she is why I'm here. And I may fall apart when she leaves home, but 'till then I don't plan to change a thing - so long as she has a smile on her face. I've got that, a comfortable home in the woods, plenty of books to read, my piano, and awesome trails just down the road. C'mon over! 

All the best to each of you -
John

Pensacola FL Revenue Specialist Married 3

Hi Aggies!
Well, after being in a hurry to leave Pensacola after high school, I found my way back to the place I love.  I graduated from Auburn with a BS in Industrial Management.  I don't know how I missed Sylvia in all  the partying.  Met my wondeful husband of 23 years in Auburn and we lived the military life in North Carolina and California.  I was blessed to be a stay at home mom while my three kids were growing up. 

Now, the kids are Aggies and I'm busy with work, swim meets, and volleyball.  I'm lucky that I still have my dad to cook and taxi the kids.  When I have time,  I like to just sit at the beach and fish.  I'm looking forward to making it this reunion since I missed out on the others.

February 12, 1961 Pace FL Cosmetologist Married 2
My husband Joey Hawkins (pine Forest class of '77) and I will celebrate our 25th Wedding Ann.  on Dec. 29, 2009.
I have been a hairdresser for 29 years.  I work at Troy McCurdys ('79) wife Vicki Myrick 
McCurdys ('78) salon Shear Illusions on Old Palafox not far from Tate. ONE day a week. 
We have lived in Pace the whole time. 
We have 2 girls.  Paige 19  is a student at PJC.  Grduated from Pace High where she was a cheerleader all 4 years. Brooke 12 in 7th grade and seems to be following her big sis in the cheer world.  It is really cool, my kids and Delyn Amberson Hanks kids are good friends. They are the best things  ever in our lives.  They both look a lot like their mother, so others tell us.
We are  active at Immanuel Baptist Church in Pace, and many former Tate Grads go there too.
In Nov. 07 Thanksgiving week our family of 4 went with a team of 6 others on a mission trip to the mountains of Mexico in the Sierra Madre. We took supplies both medical and BASIC daily needs items like clothes, shoes and food to an Indian Reservation where the people don't even name their children until the are 2 years old because most of them don't live that long.  We went to the Copper Canyon on the reservation side where only honored guest of the Chief are allowed to travel.  It was by far the most amazing thing we could have ever done as a family.  Even my 12 year old realized how good we have it.  It changed our lives forever. 
Life is good.  God Bless You All

November 09, 1961 League City TX Case Manager Divorced 2
I have been educated at Stetson U, PJC, SW Inst, and Eckerd College, without ever figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Except for a Rock n Roll star, but there's still hope as I have not yet achieved maturity.  Mostly I want to be on the water, sail and travel. 

I manage national complex litigation, which gives me an opportunity, in between projects, to take a couple years off and sail.  Twice I have been blessed with 2 years living aboard and sailing in warming latitudes.  Florida Keys, Mexico, Belize, the Bahamas.  Both incredibly rewarding experiences.  

My kids are both grown and married with children of their own.  I have 4 fabulous grandkids, 3 in Gulf Breeze and 1 in Bradenton. 

After returning to the States the last time, we bought our first house (we had always lived on sailboats).  Then the classic mid-life crisis resulted in me being single again.  I sold my boat in Florida and bought a townhouse in the Clear Lake area of Houston, where we once lived aboard. 

Life is good.  I have great friends, am very active in service at my church, make enough money to buy beer, cat and dog food, and enjoy sailing every chance I get.  Sometimes kayaking, sometimes power boating, but always on the water. 

I am looking forward to being "home" again and getting to see some of you in person.  I can't wait to eat fried mullet at Jerry's Drive-In, you can't get that just anywhere you know!
