We all found out we had been led to our upward paths with many varied careers, worldly experiences, and loved children and grandchildren. Laughter and camaraderie plus dancing and cheerleading led to a fine evening that even though all too short left everyone with a grand experience and wanting more from the shining ways our beloved alma mater inspired us towards.

DJ Steve Baker provided the music and Deborah Wright from the WYCC assisted with the decorations. Special thanks go to Pat Dunston Bishop who led the Reunion Committee and everyone who contributed and participated in planning this special evening.
