Born and raised in Camden, where I graduated from Camden High School (back when Camden and Fairview were separate school districts). Graduated from the University of Arkansas in 1968 and stayed another year to work on my masters degree. Moved to Dallas and taught at J. J. Pearce High School in Richardson. Met and married Larry, and we moved to St. Louis in early 1971. Then moved to Huntsville, AL, in 1972, and back to Fayetteville in 1974. The first year we were there I taught in the UofA Journalism Department for one of my former professors who was on leave to write a book. Then I taught at Fayetteville High School for two years. To Little Rock in 1977 where I taught first at Parkview and then at Pulaski Academy. Moved to Texarkana in 1984 and to Birmingham in 1989. Have been here ever since. Stayed true to the Razorbacks, and in spite of spending most of their growing up in Birmingham, all three of my sons are graduates of the University of Arkansas.
Reminds me of the 1969 Big Shootout. As the game went to a commercial break between the 3rd and 4th quarters, my Dad looked at me and said “I think we’ve got 'em, son!”. We all know what happened next.
To the point of the thread:
- Born in Fort Smith, to parents who met at the U of A after Dad returned from WWII (he was from Abilene, TX; Mom from LR)
- Dad worked at Chaffee, and he got a transfer to White Sands Missle Range (WSMR) in N. Mexico when I was 1 year old. We lived briefly in Las Cruces, NM, then relocated to a house on base once one opened up. This is the first place I remember.
- Moved to El Paso - about 40 miles away - when I was 7 and Dad commuted to WSMR each day while we lived in EP. I went all through school in EP, graduating from Andress High School, and then I attended UTEP. Was sports editor of the UTEP student newspaper for a year. I remember listening to Dicky Morton's big night vs. Baylor on a radio while in the press box for a UTEP football game in the Sun Bowl. Also, attended several Sun Bowl games over the years. Remember seeing in those games (among others) Tony Dorsett (with Pitt), Donny Anderson (TT), Mel Renfro (Oregon) and Bert Jones (LSU).
- After earning a B.S. degree in Math at UTEP, came to DFW in early 1976 as a computer programmer for Texas Instruments. Have lived in various parts of the DFW metroplex ever since.
