Julie Anderson April 9, 2006
Julie Lynn Anderson, now Julie Anderson Slattery. I'm livin' in New Jersey with husband and son, writing at home and volunteering at my son, Sean's school. I lived in St. Louis for two years after graduation, then moved to Manhattan, NY, for ten years. Got married to John Slattery (of the Bronx) and we had son Sean in 1995. Moved to suburbs in 1998, and Central New Jersey in 2003.
Our town, Pennington, is like "Mayberry" and located between Princeton and Trenton. Love the area;we're ten minutes from where George Washington crossed the Delaware. Tons of history here and short train ride to Manhattan. Thirty minutes to Philly.
I edited and wrote for trade and consumer magazines previously, and am working on longer works of fiction, now. I also work with the Trenton Film Festival and run a newspaper club for 40 fourth and fifth graders. I've written some short fiction and won the Graveson Award, from the Garden State Horror Writers, for a short story called "The Quarry."
My husband works for Merril Lynch, formerly in Manhattan, recently in Hopewell, New Jersey. Our son is in fifth grade, loves skateboarding, sports and playing electric guitar. We have a huge Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Bear who guards our house with an iron paw.
Susan Appelbaum March 2, 2002
Hi fellow classmates. After graduation, I married in 1983, and moved to St.Louis, were my husband started to work for Footlocker. We were transfered a couple of times before ending up in Cape Girardeau, Mo. I worked in a couple of flower shops as a designer until I moved to Cape, there I starting managing a flower shop. After almost ten years of marriage, I divorced, and remarried in 1994. My husband, Doug, and I have been married almost eight years, and we have two beautiful daughters, Jessica and Jamie. Doug was born and raised in a small town about twenty miles from Cape Girardeau. The population of out town of New Hamburg is about 245 people. The town was founded by about twenty families that migrated here from Germany. It's great to live in a town that is so small, and your kids walk up the street to school. I've worked in flower shops most of my life since high school, and still playing a mean game of volleyball when I can. My husband is also an avid volleyball player, and it helps to be 6'4. I can't wait to come back to Columbia for the reunion, and see the town. I hope to hear from any fellow classmates in the future.

Terry Baumann August 29, 2005
Hey, Hope all of you are doing great. I've been in the Army basically since we graduated. I love my job, (Airborne Ranger) and love being in the military. I've had the responsibility of leading soldiers in combat 3 times, Iraq twice and Afghanistan, I wish all my soldiers could have returned home but that wasn't meant to be. I currently live in Georgia and serve as a first sergeant at the mountain phase of ranger school. I'm married and have 3 children who have traveled all over the world. I love to parachute and enjoy teaching mountaineerining and rock climbing to ranger students. I wish I were more like more friends from school who seem to achieved great things in life, take care and God Bless.

Al Crego October 8, 2001
I took just about forever to finish my undergraduate career at MU. In 1989 I began a PhD program in economics at the University of Iowa but transferred to another doctoral program in natural resource economics at the University of Maryland at College Park. I finished all the coursework and exams over four years, and when I took at job at the World Bank I really did have every *intention* of finishing my dissertation while doing research on world economic growth at the Bank, but things got too busy once I got a real job. I worked for the Bank for about six years and occasionally I got to travel to Africa and learn about the majority of the world that lives in relative poverty, even some of the world's most extreme poverty. Many of people in Africa are wonderful despite circumstance and I miss going there. I got more than a little worn out on the headquarters work, though, so after a few years I changed fields and became a programmer for research at the National Institutes of Health. I was eventually hired out of the rewarding work at NIH by the RAND Corporation, a research oriented think tank known for cutting edge work in many sectors important to public policy, including education, health, and various aspects of national defense.
For fun I read a lot and
study ancient history and theology, and I even attend seminary classes
to keep me honest in some of those efforts. I joke about being on the fifteen-year
plan at seminary, but I enjoy it. I also spend a lot of time with my sweetheart
shelter dogs (yellow lab mixes) and play with programming of different
sorts. Whenever back in Columbia, I still head to G&D Pizza for the
pizza, of course, and the Texas Toast, something I wish would catch on
in Washington. :)
Joe Holsinger July 12, 2002
Currently resides in Ft. Lauderdale Florida with his wife and 4 children. Joe is Director for Merrill Lynch Greater Fort Lauderdale market after 10 years with the firm. He entered the Securities industry in 1986 and has remained there ever since. Kids, Fly Fishing, Wine, and occassional weightlifting are what he does in spare time.
Jeff Johnson May 16, 2002
What's up, Pewkies? Looking forward to seeing most of you in August. As far as I'm concerned, I finished up school at SMS in '86, the same year I married my wife, Jill. Since that time, we've popped out four kids: Jacob is 15, Grant is 14, Rachael is 9, and Makenze is 7. After a few stints in corporate sales, I took an ad agency job in Springfield in 1989, which is where I still live. From there, I worked at a small agency for five years before starting my own firm, The Team, in 1996. We currently have 15 employees and are enjoying a great run of success with regionally-based Clients of all kinds. When I'm not hanging out brainstorming advertising campaigns or helping Jill shuttle kids around, you'll find me on the golf course. Take care, fellow grads.
Stacey Keely June 6, 2002
I moved to AZ the day after graduation. Held a few jobs, lived with a boyfriend, quit the jobs, quit the boyfriend and moved back to Columbia in 1986. Got a job, lived with a boyfriend, quit the job and quit that boyfriend too.
In 1991 my luck changed! Got a great job at Shelter Insurance which developed into the perfect job. I get to work on several of their websites and do other graphic work for all different sorts of people/departments. I love it!
In February of 1992, my luck got even better. My boyfriend (Forrest) from senior year called out of the blue. All those years, I just knew he wouldn't forget me! Here's the sticky-sweet condensed version: After I moved to AZ, he moved to LA. His path took him to (not necessarily in order): TN, NJ, TX, and lastly HI. He happened to catch an Oprah show on lost loves and, of course, thought of me!!! Are you retching from the sweetness yet? It gets worse! We phone dated for about three months -- AT&T became our best friend. We even rented the same movie one night and watched it together -- I fell asleep -- Big time difference between MO and HI. He moved to MO in May 1992, so was here for the last reunion. We married on Sept. 26, 93 -- The day we'd met way back in 1982!
We live in rural Fulton. Don't have any human children, but have 6 dogs and 5 cats -- All sizes, colors, shapes and ages. I could go on and on about the critters, but will restrain myself.
What's so great about being a grownup? Not worrying about what anyone thinks about me! Because I've been blessed with a good husband, the best friends in the world and have a terrific job, everyone wants to be me!!! And that's certainly not the way I felt at 18.
I look forward to getting
together with friends from the past, the friends I see day-to-day, and
I hope to make new friends too. See you in August!
Randy Singleton September 18, 2001
After leaving High School I was in a Rock Band out of the Lake of the Ozarks for a year than entered the US Navy in 1983. In the Navy I was stationed in Jacksonville, Florida in a Helicopter Squadron which was attached to the Aircraft Carrier "Coral Sea". We saw action during the Libya crisis as well as competed a Mediterranean Cruise (8 months at sea) where I visited Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Sicily, and Israel. I got off active duty in 1987, but remain in the Navy Reserves where I hold the rank of First Class Petty Officer.
When I got off of active duty I went to work for the Marriott Corporation in Orlando, Florida at the World Center Resort. I held several positions there which included Room Service Captain, VIP Coordinator, Restaurant Supervisor, Assistent Restaurant Manager, Executive Steward, and Convention Operations Manager. I stayed in Orlando a total of seven years than transfered with Marriott to Kentucky to Marriott's Griffin Gate Resort as a Senior Catering Service Manager for four years. I than transfered to Detriot, Michigan to Marriott's Renaissance Center as a Senior Catering Service Manager for two years and in 2001 I transfered back to Kentucky at again Marriott's Griffin Gate Resort as Director of Catering Operations.
I married Sherene Breeling
out of Omaha, Nebraska (I know, how could I marry a Cornhusker), and have
been married for sixteen years now. We have four children: Spencer
13, Taylor 10, Alexa 6, and Skylor 4.
I am very excited to begin my teaching career next school year! I truly want to make a difference in children's lives. It's a cruel world out there and if I can make a positive difference in ONE child's life then I will feel I have truly accomplised something. Please pray I go as God leads me!
I don't know how many of you knew Delores Greening(Sanders)from the class of 83 but she passed away with leukemia this year not long ago. She was truly a blessing to all she came into contact with. If it had not been for her who knows what would have happened to me.
My husband Robbie and I stay very busy with the four girls. They are all active in sports(softball and basketball)and my youngest two daughters are in 4H. Kayla(10) is doing a steer for the first time!!!!! Quite an experience!!!! We also are active in church (youth group) and enjoy fishing and spending time at the pool in the summer. If you have any suggestions for fairtime showing a steer PLEASE email me!!!!! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
I hope to see you all
at the reunion!
Martha Watkins August 6, 2002
I graduated from MU in 1986 and have continued to work and live in Columbia. I have worked for the MU News Bureau, the Missouri Association of Realtors and the University of Missouri System in public relations -- media relations, publications editor and writer. I currenty work as outreach coordinator for WaterPartners International, a non-profit based in Columbia that helps communities in developing countries build safe water systems. I'm married to Bob Brendel and we have three kids, Bo (9), Cole (7), and Rose (2). We live on the same street I did when I was in high school -- three doors from where my mother still lives. Although I often envy the experiences of friends who have moved around, I have been happy in Columbia. The last twenty years have gone by so fast -- I'm looking forward to the reunion and taking a look at old memories from this perspective.
