Subject: BS-What was your high (or equivalent) school
From: katlaughing
Date: 15 Jul 99 - 04:26 PM

Well, 'Spaw & Gitarzan are exchanging graduation dates and high school names, so I thought, wow another totally BS thread! Actually I thought it might be fun to find out if anyone went to the same ones.

For all not living in the US: I apologise for not knowing the proper terms for what schools you graduate from, before going off to the equivalent of our colleges. Usually one finishes with H.S., here, around the age of 18/19.

Now, that said, I will post my high school, Grand Junction Senior High, Grand Junction, Colorado BUT, while my class graduated in 1971, I dropped out, had my son in '70 and got the highest score ever seen at Mesa College, on a General Equivalency Degree (GED) the following year.

For others who might have also dropped out....it doesn't matter, just post whatever school you went to when you were trying to be a young hoodlum like me or Rick! (Love ya anyway, Rick:-)

HAVE FUN! Anybody from Colorado?

Gee, Doug, you may be older than Sandy Paton - which is about the same as saying you're older than dirt, I think (Sandy's gonna have something to say about that).

I graduated in 1966 from De Sales Preparatory Seminary (High School) in Milwaukee, and then spent four more years in the seminary before I discovered the opposite sex and figured out I wasn't destined to be a Catholic priest.
Say, Kat, I'm kinda sweet on you. Wanna wear my high school hair shirt?

I got a good 8th grade education in only 12 years, graduating from Port Angeles Senior High School, in 1968. Then FADAC computer school in the USARMY in 1969. (basic + school = 9.5 months) Got piss poor grades in HS. Was in top 20% of FADAC school. But we had a bit of attrition. My class started at about 60. Half way the remains of our class was joined with another...we graduated 12. (I was the only one without at least two years of collage. Not bad eh?) I think we had a higher drop out rate than the helecopter pilots. My last rating in the Army said that there were less than ten of us left in the whole US Army in 1974. The rest is self training.

"Kick me" for what, Duane? I'm hoping Sandy will be proud of the "older than dirt" crack, and I'm proud of the 8 years of seminary education and I had a great time there. And I lied about the hairshirt - I've never even seen one.
Also lied when I said I graduated in 1970, so I corrected that.

Cool Thread!

I think the college level thing is because we are all sort of keyboard addicts, so the more we have to type the happier we are. Carpal Tunnel Rules.

Anyway, Quabbin Regional JSHS 70-76, Dropped out in 74, restarted in 75, dropped out in 75, came back for Sr. year and graduated with my class in 76. (health problems) Clark U 76-77 (Worcester Ma, dropped out) Thames Valley Tech College (81-87, A.S. computers) Mohegan Community College (87-88) UCONN Avery Point, Hartford and Storrs (B.A. 90 and M.A. 93)

KatLaughing--I wonder if we ever ran into each other around here when you lived in CT. Dai(*the* one and only!) 'scuse my ignorance, but I think you'd need a college education just to be able to pronounce the names of your schools! ;>

I find this interesting because it's long been my belief that degrees *may* (perhaps usually) boost income here in the US, but they don't confer intelligence or wisdom. Nature seems to have been profligate with the intelligence and wisdom, conferring them randomly among the academically inclined and the rest of the population. I've been hanging around the 'cat for nearly a year, and everyone who posts regularly, in my opinion, has gotten large dollops of intelligence and wisdom, regardless of education! I've learned a lot here!

Vixen: we were in Mystic from 1987-1993 and I drove all over hell and back. Loved the country and history. Did you by any chance go to the Northeast Women's Musical Retreat in 1988 at the boy scout camp just above where Foxwoods is now? My daughters and I were there. Before that we lived in Northampton, MA. Went to CT a LOT to Logee's Greenhouse in danielson, Buell's in Eastford, and Caprilands up near UCONN.

Do you ever read the New London DAY? I have an oped piece which is going to be in it this Sunday about the old house we lived in in Mystic & its ghost. It'll be on the Perspectives page.

Okay, since evertyone did do some of the higher education stuff, here's the rest of mine: one of the first women, in Colorado, actually first of any gender, to go through the, then, brand new emergency medical technician, one year program at Mesa College, 1976, Grand Jct., Colorado; found out it was pretty worthless as it was not recognised as anything but a glorified nurse's aide position until a few years later when it caught on.

Several course at Casper College, Casper, WY including a wonderful Wyoming history course by a genuine raconteur of the First Order, who even wrote stories & narrated them for the BBC, on the old West, Bill Bragg, who is now deceased. He gave me, at the time a young mother of three, without a lot of time, an A on my paper on the Sioux Ghost Dance Religion. Also completed a Metalsmithing course & just finished my first course in enameling and loved it.

Dixie M. Hollins, for those who asked, was one of the first Superintendents of Pinellas County Schools. Dixie M. Hollins High School was named after him, all who refer to it just call it Dixie.

Bron: Joe is exactly right! I don't mind the personal stuff at ALL! I delight in reading every bit of it, even words made of almost all consonants:-) (Actually I love languages SO much, I am dying to know how to rponounce some of those words!)

And, I did think it might get more personal as some find they've shared some backgrounds. Thanks, everyone, it's PHUN!
