    Anticipating my grandson's graduation from WLHS this year.  Semi-retired!  Volunteer for Chamber of Commerce in the summer.  A homebody!  Love working in my garden and playing with my PUG named Betty . . .

    Favorite memory:  When we finally in my senior year got to wear pants on Friday . . . in those days all girls wore dresses.  Really enjoyed dissecting frogs in Mr. Pre's biology class.  Mrs. Lightower's algebra class.

    Anything else to share:  Myself and my four siblings (5), plus nieces (3), great nieces & nephew (3), and now my grandson (1).  So a total of 12 family members are graduates of WLHS.

    Paul Myers  Fairview, TX   pdmyers@msn.com       


    Worked for a dealer in Portland, OR.  Owned and operated my own Mercedes-Benz, BMW & Renault Dealership for 5 years.  Worked for Mercedes-Benz of North America for nearly 30 years.  Retired at 56 and did consulting for 10 years.  Have been fully retired for two years.

    Favorite memory:  The best memories are of the many friendships during high school.

    The worst is the fact that I moved away from Oregon and only kept in touch once in a long while with just two of those friends.  Some now, like Norman Bless, have passed away.
