Comments: Sitting in the flat listening to music so old it inspired memories of high school. To my astonishment, I find that Gulf High has an alumni page amidst its other web pages (I was disappointed, however, not to find Margaret Peek on the faculty…I had heard that Bob Hicks passed away, and Dan Fortuna, oddly enough, I ran into in Virginia, where he prospers in the business world). I now live in Australia, after several years living in Austin and Tallahassee (I was a professor at FSU). Now I lecture on ancient history and Greek and Latin at the University of Sydney. I’m still in touch with my best friend and ex, Janelle (née Maysilles), who thrives in Austin (and is still amazing: she’s just back from safari in Africa), and by way of her I hear about Charles Bailey. I hope everyone in or from NPR is well.

[Jeff Miller note: Margaret Peek is still on the faculty. We have her picture, but no biography at the moment.]

Comments: Hard to believe it has been 33 years. Went right from high school to the U.S. Navy till 1979. Graduated with my B.A. in Journalism in 1986 and worked for a large newspaper. Became an RN in 1995 and have worked for The Department of Justice/Federal Bureau of Prisons since 1996. I currently travel and teach our new electronic medical record program to our health care staff in our agency all over the country. I still live in Leesburg and go to NPR once or twice a year – my mom is buried there. I drive around and remember the good times growing up – band, sock hops, Chasco Fiesta parades, football games, McDonald’s, boating on the river with Bobby Hartzell, Sam Williams and Bart Young. Going to Pete Altman’s house in the summer and playing tennis with him and his brothers. I will always be grateful to those who were so kind to me when my mom died my senior year. I wish everyone the best.
