reached that point even now. My best friend back then had to be Rick

ERNIE(?-73)- Guess I'll start out by updating
everyone on who I've bumped into from ACS in this small world. I saw
Matt Econopouly and Mike Barry in the summer of '72 after graduation.
Saw Pete Christ a little later that year. I wonder if he's still bitching
about a small phone bill I left behind ? Had to use the phone to let
Katrina Meinhardt know when I'd arrive in Fairfax Va. I lost touch with
her but I think she moved to New Orleans and tied the knot. Oct. '72
I enlisted in the USAF and the world got smaller. As I was standing
against a wall in the San Antonio airport waiting to be indoctrinated
into basic training, I looked across the room and saw Bob Rusk. I enlisted
in Wilkes-Barre Pa. and he in New Orleans. Four months prior to this
we were both riding the same school bus to ACS. On that first night
at basic training while the sergeants where screaming at us I know we
both had the same thought as everyone else, "What the hell did
I get myself into?" I only saw Bob two or three more times after
that so who knows where he is.
SMITH DWIGHT G(1953-58) We called it Anglo-American High School back then, and I attended 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. My copy of the 1955 Evzone includes pictures of us 6th graders. The seniors that year included Alison Kent, Babs Thompson, and June McBride. Mrs. Hatchett was our 6th grade teacher but others included her husband William, Mr. Banani, the librarian Mrs. Dickie (my favorite), Mrs. Standish. Some of my friends were Anne MacPhearson, May and Tony Capsaskis, and Patty Gillette, among others. As for myself, a doctorate in biology from BYU and a professorship here at Connecticut State Univ for the past 30 years. Three marriages and two kids and no desire to retire. Looking back, I treasure those years at AAHS/ACS---I think that we all did, really---we were a close-knit little group and we all had a wonderful time there. Sure would like to hear from some of my old friends. Please look me up in the old Evzone for 1955----I am the shy guy standing off a little to the right, front row for Sixth Grade I.
