From Neil Rogers February, 2016
We recently traveled to the Philippines.
My daughter Deirdre was a nursing exchange student at Philippine General Hospital in Manila this past November. She worked in the poverty ward and it opened her eyes.
She returned in December to receive her RN from Johns Hopkins.
As I lived in the Philippines for 1969-1971 as a Peace Corps Volunteer, Deirdre and I traveled to the island Negros where I taught high school students.
I had recently updated my contact with children of the family I lived with those many years ago through Facebook. They’re now in their fifties.
It was an amazing reunion and something I wondered if I would ever get to accomplish and am so glad I did.
After some back and forth with Class President Tom Weyer, shown in some of the photos, John McCoy identified these as photos of the 1993 reunion, our 25th.
Tom Weyer, Class President, you’ll notice, is in these photos.
These photos explain why Jay Schwartz and Nancy Carlin Figel, as well as Maureen McAtee and Bill Kelly, have never held elective office. Jay’s election to head of the Hall President’s Council occurred in years prior.
Notice the four Toms (Condon, McKenna, McCann, McKenna) in the second photo.
Bryan Dunigan photographed some of the classmates during the 45 year reunion. Take some yourself? If you email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, we can share them here on the blog.
