School Story

Graduate Salem State College 1974 BS Business Administration. US Peace Corps Volunteer, 1975-77; Small Business Development Program. I learned Spanish and the 2 years in the Peace Corps really impacted my life and gave a wider spectrum on life. After several positions in export and international business l returned to Ecuador to get married and worked as a High School math teacher, teaching Algebra and Geometry! I once was stuck on a proof in Geometry and fell asleep trying to prepare for class the next day! I had a dream that l was in Mr Jameson's Geometry class and he was explaining the same proof! When l woke up l grabbed a pencil and completed the proof just as I'm my dream! After my son was born in Ecuador 🇪🇨 we returned to the US and l worked as a Freight Forwarder at the airport in Hartford CT. My three daughters were born ion 1985, 86, and 1988. I continued in the airfreight transportation field and ultimately founded a company in 1993. After a good run I this business, the company was sold and l retired in 2009 and returned to Latin America to travel once again! I moved to Ecuador in 2013 and live on the Pacific Ocean. I divide my time between Vermont and Ecuador and cherish my time with my 4 children and 7 grandchildren. Barbara, who is from Ecuador, and l were wed in 2017! I have studied martial arts throughout my life including Kenpo Karate for the past 16 years!

I was able to meet with Al Holt about 2003 as he had sent me condolences on my Dad's death.  We lived within 30 miles of each other and met several times for lunch near his job at Barnes Airforce Base in Westfield MA.

We both were looking forward to going to the 35th Class reunion however, as it turned out a 50th Reunion was planned!  I'm glad l got to see him and know that he was looking forward to seeing all his classmates! RIP Al !
