It is great to read about class members. Looking at the pictures brings back a lot of memories.

At graduation I was working at F. W. Woolworth Co and continued to work there while I attended Enid Business College. In 1961 I married Leon Walters and became a farmer’s wife and moved 15 miles south of Enid. We have 4 children who have made us grandparents to 12 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren, all of whom live in Oklahoma and Kansas. Needless to say holidays and special occasions are large and exciting with all of the kids.

In between having babies and raising them I have enjoyed many career experiences. Champlin’s, Thorp-Wells, Loomis Furniture, Birch-Shipley Real Estate, insurance agent with Franklin Life, began my own Bookkeeping Service, Roberts Ranch, retired for 18 months and now working at Luckinbill, Inc. Two other career experiences were strictly volunteer. The first was a gospel music program that Leon and I began in 1990 and brought Southern Gospel singers and musicians to Enid for over 11 years. It was called “The Lord’s Opry.” The second was publishing a Christian newspaper called “Faith in Action.”

Thanks to all of those who have spent hours working on the reunion. It will be great to see everyone.
