What's your favorite memory of UHS?

Working as editor-in-chief of "The Voice" school newspaper and attending the Oklahoma Interscholastic Press Association competition at OU my senior year, at which the paper won the Highest Honors award.

Who was your favorite teacher in high school?

Miss Massey for world literature

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates?

Nope. I do have some who are Facebook "friends," but I don't see any classmates regularly.

What are your high points of your life since high school?

Finishing a master's degree in Communication Arts in 1999 and the births of my four beautiful children.

Famous or interesting people you've met?

Ran into Steve Tyler of Aerosmith in Albertson's once. I would have been more excited to see his daughter, Liv.

I attend church with the oldest and youngest Hanson brothers, Isaac and Zach, but I have to admit, I was never a fan of their music, but they are great guys and have beautiful families.

What would we be surprised to know about you?

That I went on to complete a master's degree--I wasn't a very motivated student through junior high and the first half of high school. I'm sure my sophomore English instructor, Mrs. Golden, would be shocked to know I went on to get a bachelor's in English.

How do you see yourself in 10 more years?

I'm surprised that each year so far is better than the last. One perk of aging is losing the self-consciousness we sometimes have when we're younger.

Any words of wisdom?

Life comes and goes as quick as a puff of vapor--don't waste it on vain pursuits. As you strive to succeed, don't do it at the expense of those around you--there's room for everyone to succeed and it's easier when we cooperate and help one another.
