Kay Kavanaugh (Winkler)
La Plata MD Retired/writing children's books Married 1
After graduating, I attended the University of Maryland. I married in 1973 to a teacher of history who later became a principal of one of the local middle schools. We had one child, Kelly, who is my pride and joy. She is 28 years old and resides in Rockville, MD. She is a graduate of Mary Washington and obtained her Masters degree at the University of MD. She is presently a senior consultant with Kaiser Permanente.
I divorced in 1997 and remarried in 2005 (yes, I'm still a newlywed) to Monk Winkler who's retired and loves to play golf! We're living life to it's fullest!
I am presently retired after 15 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Charles County, MD. I worked in the legal field at the Charles County Circuit Court handling child support, custody, visitation and domestic violence.
Since my retirement I have developed a passion for writing children's books and have just published my first book "The Creepy Tree". I self published through AuthorHouse. It has 10 beautifully illustrated and colorful pages for the children. This tree, in this endearing story, is based on a real, uncanny old tree growing in the front yard of my husband's daughter's home. A routine evening, windy night and full moon set the stage for this heart warming tale. The two young characters, Braeden and Lexi, are preparing for bedtime and unaware that their routine evening is about to evolve into an amazing adventure. They are taken on an journey by a magical tree beyond their wildest imaginations. There are a couple of twists in this story to delight young readers.
The book is for sale at AuthorHouse.com, Barnes and Noble.com. and Amazon. com. I have had one book signing thus far and four other lined up! It has been well received by children and adults!
I love traveling, reading, shopping, arts & crafts and spending time with family and friends. I had a marvelous time at the reunion and enjoyed seeing all of the alumni. I am looking forward to any future reunions.
Sparta NJ Finance/Sales Married 1After leaving Churchill I spent a very unproductive year at U of M then transferred to a college in Ohio where I earned an even less productive degreee in Sociology. Luckily I developed some strong sales and management skills that have kept food on the table over the years.
After college I returned to Potomac and worked as a branch manager for Potomac National Bank. I then bought the old SPORTSMEN bar on Wisconsin Avenue and renamed it the KIWI Pub. Bob R. helped me out as bartender and Phil J. was on the construction crew.
In the late 70's I moved to Southern California and started my sales career with sales leadership roles at AT&T, Lucent and now with HP.
In 1995 AT&T moved my wife, Barb, daughter, Hilary, and me to NW New Jersey and then we were based in London England for 2 years.
Today Barb and I split time between our home on Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia and our home in New Jersey.
We make quarterly trips back to Orange County, California to see our handsome, smart and talented new gransdon, Luke.
Over the last 40 years, I have had the great fortune to stay close with the "Float Trip Boys" and Phil J.
Look forward to seeing you all at the reunion.
