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.

Does anyone know if any of the teachers we had are coming to the reunion, or if they're still around, like Mr. Polloi or Mr. Graham?
