October 30, 1961 Hoover AL Minister Married 3
I could say 30 years have flown by, but then there are days like today that kinda creep.

After graduation I attended PJC then Samford U in B'ham.  I dropped out of college and began working for Parisian.

I worked at 7 stores in 7 years, mainly training associates how to sell and training managers how to communicate with associates.

Parisian moved me around a lot.  I ended up in P'cola.  There I felt God calling me to be a minister. My last day at Parisian was 12/24/88 - Christmas Eve.  Merry Christmas to me!

I  dropped into school at UWF.  I graduated with a degree in Communication Arts/Public Relations, then to New Orleans for seminary.

I met Karla, my wife at Parisian in P'cola.  We are celebrating 20 years this August.  I have 3 great children.

February 26, 1961 Palo Alto CA Librarian/Academic Divorced 2
Hey everyone! Thanks to Sean for getting everything moving here!

I live out in California these days, near San Francisco. I ended up here as a trailing spouse after living many years in New Jersey. I actually miss New Jersey!

After Tate, I went to college all over the place, spending a bit of time at FSU, PJC, UWF and then finally settling down a bit to study chemistry and religion at New College of Florida down in Sarasota. I had great fun there -- if you have kids thinking about college and they are interested in something different from the usual places and they are up to a heavy duty academic challenge, New College is a great choice.

I almost went to a seminary for grad school to continue studying religion after New College (I've been an atheist for a long time, since 9th grade, pretty much, but I love thinking about and reading about and talking about religion), but instead I followed my New College girlfriend up to New Jersey and lived in New Jersey for the most part for the next 15 years, with stop offs to live in Gainesville, Pensacola, North Carolina, and Chicago at various times.

I had been happily avoiding the middle class for many years -- hey, I listed my occupation as "Mystic" on my income tax returns for several years in the late 80s and early 90s -- but then an old friend recruited me to join the middle class team out in Chicago, and so I happily changed my occupation to "Wage Slave" on the tax returns for the next several years, acquired some astoundingly great kids (at least 2 -- 2.5, maybe, I guess, if you count the one who was reincarnated), a lovely wife who is now an excellent ex-wife, and a nice low-key job as a librarian and an academic.

I spent a few years on the tenure track at Rutgers University in NJ, where I had gotten degrees in communication and information science, teaching communication, building digital libraries, and doing a bit of info science research and consulting work as a sophist, but now I work as a librarian at a small university. And read lots of religion, neuroscience, constitutional law, history, and a bit of fiction so I can have fun conversations with people in line at the grocery store.

Woodstock GA Engineer Married 3
It's been 30 years? No way!  As hard as it is to believe that 30 years have passed, it has been fun reading what everyone has been up to.

Renee Rasberry and I started dating soon after we graduated from Tate and married right after we both graduated from UWF in '83. We lived in West Palm Beach for a couple of years and then moved to Huntsville, AL where we had our son, Eric, in '86.

We moved to Fort Walton Beach in '87 where we each got a Master's degree from UWF and we had two daughters: Nicole in '90 and Alyssa and '94.  We  moved to Woodstock, GA (just north of Atlanta) in '98 and have been there since.  

I've worked in the aerospace industry the whole time and currently work for Lockheed Martin on the F-22 program.

It'll be great catching up again...see you at the reunion.

August 12, 1961 Engineering Rep. Married 2

Hi All,


My sweet and beautiful cousin Martha Rose (Dungan) called and told me of the reunion and web site (thanks Martha). So here I am checking in.


 It has been a long, long time and what a ride it has been. I can only hope you all have enjoyed the journey as much as I have.  I moved from Pensacola at 18 just after high school to Houston. I meet a lot of great people including my beautiful wife Jackie. We have been married for 23 years now and have two wonderful sons which can be somewhat of a handful at times, payback from my teen years??? We moved from Houston to Sarasota Fl. where we started our family, what a great place to have a family. I still have family in Pensacola and we make it there from time to time but never for very long.


Hope to see you all soon and looking forward to a great time.


Remember don’t sweat the small stuff, you only live once!

January 28, 1961 Crestview FL Financial Advisor Married 3
My comments are joint for myself and Amy (Bryan) Lowrey. Amy and I dated all through 11th & 12th grades at Tate and married in April 1981. We have 3 children: Justin,23; Jared 20; and Katie 16. Paul: I spent 20 years in the USAF, serving 17 of those years in Special Operations at Hurlburt Field and Eglin AFB in Fort Walton Beach. The other 3 years was a tour of duty in Germany. I retired from the Air Force in 2000 and started a new career as a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones in Fort Walton Beach. I started off the new year (2009) as an Independent Financial Advisor with LPL Financial and have my own practice in Crestview, FL, where we have lived since 1991. Amy: Blessed us with our 3 children and stayed at home with them until Katie started school. She spent so much time volunteering at the schools with our children, they decided to hire her. Amy has worked at Northwood Elementary School in Crestview for the past 10 years helping 1st grade students with reading skills. Justin lives in Gainesville, working and college. Jared lives at home, working and college. Katie, sophomore, lives and breathes Color Guard with the Crestview HS Band and Winter Guard after football season. That is our life, now. It is ironic, we will be at Tate today, March 28th, for the final Gulf Coast Circuit competition. Send Paul a MessageSend Paul a Message

June 19, 1961 Pensacola FL Owner - America's Sewplace Married 5
Hi everyone.  Not sure if I'm going to make the reunion or not.  We have vacation planned that week.  But I'm still going to try.
After graduation I moved to Houston where I met my husband of 22 years.  After we had 4 kids out there, we decided Pensacola would be a great place to raise the kids (closer to the grandparents.) So in 1989 we moved to Pensacola.  My oldest, Cody will be 21 next month (that magic age.)  Remember when we couldn't wait to be 18?  Anyway, Cody is a Junior at FSU.  He will graduate next year with a double major in Business/Finance & Real Estate.  Will apply for law school after graduation.  My daughter, Taylor  (18) is a Senior at Tate.  Will graduate next month and is planning on going to PJC to become a Dental Hygeinist.  I also, have 2 more sons at Tate, Connor (16) is a Junior and Chase (15) is a Freshman.  
God didn't think I had enough kids to raise, so about 3 years ago, my husband and I got custody of another boy, Seth, who is now 9. He is in the 4th grade at Pine Meadow .  
I am the owner of an embroidery business.  Have been doing this now for 9 years.

I hope to be able to arrange to come to the reunion.
