What have you been up to since you graduated?

I transferred to Shaker Heights High from Kennedy High School, starting my 10th grade year at Shaker. I graduated from Ohio State University as a journalism major, and got my Masters at Boston University in broadcast journalism. I worked in print and radio journalism as a reporter in St. Petersburg, Florida (print only) and in Boston. I moved to Washington, D.C. in 1980. I changed careers from news reporting to media relations. Among those jobs were Congressional Press Secretary, and media manager for the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. Now I work with intellectually challenged adults.

School Story

My favorite extracurricular class was a once-a-week gathering around lunchtime about topical and protest songs, led by a teacher, Mr. Graham. He would play excerpts of songs by Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and others who supported civil rights and opposed the Vietnam war. I loved the music, and learned a lot about politics, music, and dissent.
