Biggest thing you would do differently if you went back to your time at BHS?

study! without a degree, my career has been a struggle.

Do you have any good stories about classmates?

My first day at BWood, I was introduced to Mr. Hunt and was touring the photo dark room when Kelli Walton came busting throught door calling my name. To my supprise, Mr Hunt had told her that Bill was in the dark room (I guess that I was not the Bill that she was expecting). Friends then and now.

I made many trips to the fairgrounds for their Saturday night dances. Debbie Scruggs was a regular and there always seemed to be a small group but I dont remember who. It was always hot and I always left completely soaked in sweat. I dont know how we ever slow danced without slipping off of each other. Debbie also introduced me to Rocky Horror Picture Show (only saw it 15 times)
