School Story:

Trips to the Crest or the "U" for "social experimentation" or to the drive-ins for "libation experimentation"---did we really pile a bunch of us in the trunk to save money??? Crashing into poles at Frank's

Friendships that have lasted a lifetime, amazingly. We have all worked at it---Lavender (who introduced me to my wife), Singer, James, Redman......

The State Championships of our senior year---"We'll take State and even more........" We are into the Even More stage now

Comments:

Worked in the retail industry for first 13 years; was CEO of seven different companies, beginning in 1983--that just meant I could not keep a job!!! Sold the companies that I owned and became a marketing professor at the University of Southern California in 1997. Was named Dean of the Marshall School of Business in 2007---the coolest job ever!!!! Stepped down June 2020. Still playing golf, but seem to be counting WAY more strokes these days...........

Was with Terry Stone yesterday in Northern California. He looked GREAT but has to have a kidney transplant. Will be in Dallas for tests next weekend so will miss the reunion. Asked to be remembered to all, and for us to enjoy being together.
