Class of 1981
I attended North County Christian School and graduated with the class of 1981. Thinking back to my high school days definitely brings about a smile! I am so thankful for the close friendships and fun memories; I wouldn’t trade my time at NCCS for anything. After graduating from NCCS, I attended Mid-America Nazarene University in Olathe, Kansas, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in office administration in 1986. The summer following my college graduation I began working at a community college in Illinois as an office assistant. In 2005, I accepted the Coordinator of Marketing/Public Information position with responsibilities that include writing news releases; designing advertisements, course schedules and direct mail pieces; photographing students and events; and heading up our social media.
My husband, Gary, and I have been married for 27 years and reside in a small rural town, much different from St. Louis where I lived for the first 23 years of my life. We have two daughters, Melanie and Julie. Melanie also attended MNU and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in nursing. She is a RN on a surgical/trauma unit and recently married Josh on September 28. Our baby daughter, Julie, is a freshman at Indiana Wesleyan University, where she plans to study marketing and Spanish. Our family attends a Wesleyan church where we all take an active role and help in various capacities, such as vacation Bible school, church music, Sunday school teacher and board member.
I have many wonderful memories of attending NCCS! My two sisters, Janet and Cathy, and I attended from junior-kindergarten through our senior year of high school, and our younger brother, David, attended through the 7th grade. I’m so thankful my parents felt attending a Christian school was imperative. It is so important that kids have teachers who are positive role models and to learn from a curriculum without a secular influence. It’s exciting to see the growth that NCCS has experienced since 1981 and the current school campus that God amazingly provided. Attending a Christian high school and college definitely provided a strong foundation that has stayed with me all through my adult life and now has been passed on to my children.
Crusaders Serve Day was spectacular! Our students packaged 10,000 meals to go overseas to either Jamaica or Haiti and another 240 meals to go out to the St. Louis area. A special thank you to all the parent volunteers; we could not have done it without you! Thank you to everyone who has participated so far. It's not too late, you can still make a donation to Feed the Need and be a part of this great opportunity.
