Santa Fe NM Financial Advisor Single Again 1
After Churchill it was the University of Wisconsin for a BFA and BAE but a detour with Math as a major for a while. Then it was teaching Ceramics at Northwood. Mr. Jewler was there but Phil Jehle had yet to arrive. I ended up leaving since the school was on the closing list. I headed West with my MFA in Ceramics and Ceramic Art History to Santa Fe, NM where I've been ever since. Not thrilled with the lifestyle of artist/teacher, I took up Math again and with a little more training began a private practice as a Financial Advisor. I enjoy lots of public speaking on Philanthropic Gifting and making sure my clients retire well. I'm even about to apply that skill to myself in the next few years so I can ski more than a few days a week.

I got my potters wheel out of moth balls last year and am getting a body of work together for the first show in 25 years. The skills are coming back and the work looks decent so it's rewarding to squeeze in some time in the studio.

I have a wonderful and creative son (Ben) who loves theatre and I've become a costumer for the children's theatre company so I can keep track of him.  He's 14 and I might live throught these teenage years. Everyone else seems to have survived! I guess no one stays 14 forever and he won't either.

The Reunion was great and I thank each of you who worked so hard to put it together. It was full of surprises and laughs and reconnections.

See you again!

Potomac MD attorney Married 2
Here's my life update since WCHS. 
 
I graduated from Sweet Briar College in 1972 and thereafter from both Georgetown University Law School and its graduate school of law.  I worked for 20+ years in Washington DC law firms; 6 years' ago I  went in-house with a local trust company, Sandy Spring Bank, as counsel for the trust division.
 
I live in Potomac.  Both our homes (Burbank Drive and Foxhunt Lane)  were purchased from parents of other WCHSers, class of 1968!  As a result of staying so close to home, my parents were always nearby - until their deaths.  I even had the opportunity to work in the same law firm as my father for a two year period -- both of us are tax lawyers, albeit with different specialties -- mine is death taxes. (Great combo, eh -- death and taxes!) 
 
I've been married since 1976; I started off with 3 stepkids,  then aged 10, 8 and 3.  My husband is on the faculty of the economics department at the University of MD at College Park; he's presently associate Provost. 
 
In addition to the first 3 children, we eventually added two more -- now 24 and 21 -- with a total spread of 22 years  between eldest and youngest.  Our children have been a huge focus of our lives, with virtually our entire marriage having atleast one child always in residence (even now)! 
 
I've got one adult child with MS; a grandchild with aplastic anemia; I also have become  a counsellor for parents of children with retinablastoma, a vision disease of young children.  I'd welcome any advice/experience others may have on these problems and am happy to share what I know.
 
In my free time, I play golf and care for two horses  (both Arabians).   I compete the horses in 50 mile "endurance race " in MD, PA and Delaware. I use all of the old Potomac bridle trails to train on --  one of the wonderful beauties, still, of Potomac -- though few people make use of them (or even know that they exist).
   
I look forward to this reunion immensely -- and hope to learn more about others' life experiences.  Notwithstanding our parents' "finest generation," much has occured in our lifetimes that dramatically altered the expectations and opportunities that we all saw before us as we graduated from highschool -- for the most part, while we were still young enough to learn, adapt and thrive from the changes.  I'm curious to know if others feel the same way.  I consider the following among the top contentors  -- 
the impact of Vietnam war and Watergate corruption on our government;
women's educational & employment prospects improved dramatically; and
belated advancements have been realized  in black and hispanic minorities' educational and employment opportunties. 
Additionally, the sexual revolution occurred, in line with our own coming-of-age, ushered in with reliable birth control availability that, at least for our age cohort preceded the risks that later generations of youth have confronted with with STDs and AIDs.
 
Warmly,
GraceJanelle (Sherfy) Straszheim
 
PS:  Soon after leaving high school, I was able to  abandon use of my first name in favor of my middle namerso you'll have to remember me, atleast for email purposes, as "Janelle."

Springfield VA Publishing Consultant and Publisher Married 2
Can it really be 40 years? Looking forward to reconnecting with all and remembering the fun we all had. After Churchill, I attended Bucknell U (PA) and then went on to U. of Maryland for Masters in Journalism. I've been in the Wash metro area since graduating and started a publishing consulting business 24 years ago, working with associations/membership organizations on the business of communications and publishing trade magazines. My husband Roger and I have two daughters. The eldest just started her first year of elementary school teaching. Our younger daughter is a sophomore in college. 

Roger is a lobbyist for Verizon, working with the the House and Senate, and we both enjoy the politics of Washington, lots of travel, summers at Bethany Beach, and family and friends.

Louisville KY Retired Married
I'm a cocker spaniel now rapturously residing in Dog Heaven . . . Cloud 9, or if you prefer, K-9. Nice up here. No fleas. No scratch. And speaking of, guess who built an entire airplane from scratch?   My former owners, Al and Beverly Sweeny.   Not that anyone cares, yet, eons ago, and thanks to a merciful lowering of the school's academic standards, Bev Caywood miraculously graduated . . . in Potomac, Maryland . . . from Winston Churchill High. Named, I presume, after a cigarette.   Humans are weird.   More facts in this colorless resume: Bev taught several subjects (plus how to deal marked cards from the bottom) to American children in West Germany where she met Al. How? By lurking in a dark doorway and  calling out, "Are ya lonesome, Sailor?" Even though he wore an Air Force uniform.   Luckily, the pilot was Al Sweeny who became (next to me) her favorite guy, and hub.   Ah, our drama unfolds. Beverly had a tumor removed from her spinal cord. She is now well. Al's well. All's well and all's swell. In their Cozy Mark IV they fly at 200 mph to Oshkosh and other Bahama islands.   When not helming (or whatever) as Al's co-pilot, Bev reads the superbly written novels by Robert Newton Peck, who's hitched to Bev's loyal friend Sam.   She visits at the Peck's far too frequently, Everyone mentions me, their dear departed Mr. Brown. Please, no pity. Today I'm lunching with two other celebrities--Lassie and Rin Tin Tin. Send Beverly a MessageSend Beverly a Message
