I worked for a few years as a driller in an open pit coal mine, I have been a carpet installer, a windshield repair person, a construction worker, a tow truck driver, an office worker, a pizza delivery guy, a salesperson, and a truck driver. None of these things satisfied me, so I went back to school in 1992 and now I am a teacher at the local middle school in Dawson Creek, B.C., Canada. I recieved a BA in 1995 from the University of Northern British Columbia and acquired my secondary teaching certificate shortly after that. I have taught Socials 11, Humanities 9 and 10, Math 9, Core 8, and Outdoor Ed. I met my partner, Glenda Harcourt, in 1990 and we were married a year later in Dawson Creek.

SCARLIS, ALEXANDER(93-96)- Currently a Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) sophomore studying television journalism and acting.

SCHULDASKI, 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.
Six months later the world shrunk again. By this time I was stationed at Langley AFB in Hampton, Va. It was May'73 and I walked into a shoe store and across the counter I saw
a familiar face but could not believe it. I asked "Where did you go to school ?" and Robyn Rimm replied "The same place you did Ernie! " I saw her once after that but lost touch with her. Also at Langley I saw John Perry , later in '73 in Culpeper, Va. I saw our asst. director Julie from the American Club Youth Center. I cannot remember if her last name was Harris or Hill (give me a break it's been 20+ years(
Try Kelly-The Ed).Next, I don't remember if it was in'75 or '76 we got together at Tyson's Corners Va. With Chuck Katsirubas (Poncho) for those who remember. WE meaning my brother David and Mike Calder. A sad note for those who knew my brother. David died July 1st 1977.
Later in '77 I literally "bumped" into Greg Turner, Chris Turner's younger brother at Sheppard AFB, Tx. I talked with Chris via phone and she and I think, (don't quote me)Betsy Neil were in New England(
Betsy was in Beloit, Wisconsin…Is that considered New England?…The Ed.) somewhere at college. I heard a rumor that Tina Leo had gotten married and her husband was also stationed at Sheppard. AFB I kept an eye out for her but never saw her. Back in '82 or'83 I talked via phone with Doug Gilliam. He was in Reston, Va. and lost track of him until Mike Calder told me he's still there.
Mike's also the one who informed me about the "Site" I guess now you're wondering what I've done with my life, well here it goes. I was once told that somewhere in the world there would be that perfect someone, well we met eight years ago. Her name is Adele and she's the best thing that ever happened to me. We live up here in God's country in the rolling hills of Falls, Pa. One of those out of the way places that we share with our 2 dogs, 2 cats, Ball python, deer, bears, wild turkeys, grouse etc., Adele, myself, and her little boy John, well not so little. He's 15 yrs. old stands 6ft. 5in. and outweighs me by 10 lbs. He loves his quads and bikes. Since I've met Adele I've calmed down a bit so I must relinquish my title of Ouzo king. We do like nature's herbs though. Or should I say " Flying without a plane."
As to my career I'll do it by years. '72 to '76 USAF Precision Photo Systems Recon & Intelligence '76 to '78 BioMedical Equipment Repair '78 to '80 Industrial Electronics '80 to '94 Consumer elec.(TV,VCR,CD's,Camcorders,Audio) Free tips available at my E-mail address '94 to'96 Got my CDL and drove BIG trucks '96 to early '98 Police, fire, county, and private 2 way radio repair. Early '98 to present Electronic Engineer Research & Development for Pride Health Care Inc. Any Job Offers? Well if this update helps anybody in any way I'm glad to have helped. There is an open invitation to our house to any of my friends. Please E-Mail for reservations. We're off I-81 about 10 miles / will send directions, and remember; They can't live in our world, but we can live in theirs.

STONE, DAN(80-84)- After graduating in 1984, I attended the State University of New York at Maritime College where I received a BS in Marine Transportation and a License to sail in the Merchant Marine. After working in New York City for three years (while in school and after graduating) at Adweek Magazine and McGraw Hill Publishing as a systems supervisor I went to sea as a Licensed Deck Officer. During that period I got married in Annapolis, MD and moved to Savannah, GA. Once in Savannah we had a girl and a boy and have been here for about 5 years. I retired from sailing deep sea (after 7 years) and am currently working at the Georgia Ports Authority as a Stevedoring Superintendent.

Graduated American Academy in 1968. Living in Greece was a very exciting time for me-I truly could have stayed forever. However, I returned to the States, went to school and over the years I accumulated a Nursing degree (RN), a business degree(Management and Personnel) and a Master's in Public Health (Health Policy and Management). At one point I owned a tavern as well as being the professional recruiter at a large medical center. The last years of nursing found me working in adolescent and child psychiatry. I have just retired and my husband and I are writing a book. Al will retire from law enforcement (28 years) anytime now and we are planning to travel and just bum around for a bit. An auto accident impacted my ability to workout/run but I walk for exercise. My husband is an old marathon man and runs daily. Our daughter is 23 and having fun! We are too young to be old!!

THOMAS, MICHAEL(April 1969-October 1971). What a time in history!
Though graduating (1974) after a return to the states in November 1971, my time at ACS and living in Nea Kifisia remains in the best of my memories. As most, a scattered youth, (navy brat)I ultimately wound up in 13 different schools in my twelve years. I now reside in Silver Spring, Maryland, with the love of my life, Jodie Beth. It's been a long haul to happiness and security, but now is the best time of my life.
As I write this, I am home since 8/05 with a significant back injury; pending surgery June 2. Hope things get back to normal afterward. I have found it funny in a way that a lot of alum that are accounted for are from the '68-'74 time frame. Special.
Jodie and I are most passionate about our elephants and their continued conservation. Our 'real' baby is a fella named Kandula, born to the National Zoo 11/25/2001.

Anyway, we still get together with the gang to this date (20 years later)
