What is your favorite memory from your days at Wilson High School?

Talking at the LOCKERS!

Drama Club - hanging out in my heavens, was it the Rifle Range?

What are some of your favorite things to do?

Hi, I have lived in Paris, France since graduation from college in 1982. So I love to do all the things that people do in France... wine... dancing... the Louvre museum and so many others...
I'm hoping to renew acquaintance at the 40th and then welcome visiting classmates to my Paris guestroom!

I remember Terry from one particular instance at Wilson. I know exactly where we were standing in the hall. He noticed the windbreaker I was wearing and said "Wow is that a Mark Donahue jacket?" I replied yes: this Indy 500 racecar driver was the son of my grandmother's best friend from New Jersey....

Terry then asked if I could get him some "Mark Donahue" stuff. I said I might try, but I never saw the family again before he was unfortunately killed on the track.

For me it was kind of amazing that Terry knew and admired this specialist athlete. I'm sure I would never have heard of Donahue if there was not a neighborly connection. And how many of us in Washington had the opportunity to follow Formula 1 racing? Terry's knowledge and spontaneous desire brought us together for a moment and it taught me that people are so rich, we never know all the experience and wonder that lies inside each of us.  

Apart from that I remember Terry as so tall (like me) and usually hanging around the periphery, watching, observing with a little ironic smile on his face. I would like to have more memories from people who knew him better.

Kendra, I just received this photo today and thought I'd share for your birthday... That is me in my mother's arms at age 3, wearing the famous red Sears sneakers that form such a strong part of my memory of you. (Classmates, I was always so jealous that Kendra's mom let her wear the pointy-toed ones and I only was allowed the round-toed ones). With love

Heyyy Stanley happy day.
Have you seen Hamilton? I saw it in London this month. ????
I realized that I havent seen you for 40+ years but deep in my brain you exemplify the talent and brilliance I saw in that show.
I'm hoping it has the same effect on everyone, to reconnect them somehow to childhood when we were open to building our world wirh all the exciting individuals around us. Xxx claire
