 A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since 1967 but I'll try to reconstruct some of the events in my life since last we met. 
   Following graduation from WHS I attended NSU from 1967 to 1972.While I attended college at NSU, I worked 4 summers as a garbage man for the city of Shreveport. I worked with many other guys who were3 also WHS graduates.  I graduated in 1972 with a degree in zoology.  I attended LSU Medical School in New Orleans from 1972-74.  I resigned in 1974.  I then attended LA Tech and worked on a degree in Science Education. Following the completion of my coursework at La Tech I did my student teaching at Woodlawn High School. Janet Kyzer was my supervising teacher. She was a great mentor. Woodlawn was definitely different in 1975 from what it was in 1967. I finished in 1975 and took a job teaching science and coaching football at Glenbrook School in Minden, LA.  It was a good private school but $6720.00 was difficult to live on.  At the end of the year I quickly joined the Air Force and was trained as a medical laboratory specialist.  I spent 4 years at Carswell AFB, Texas near Fort Worth. There I met my wife, Catherine.  We have been married 23 years and have one son, John Michael.  John is now 13 years old.  In 1980 Catherine and I left the Air Force and went to graduate school.  She attended UT Arlington in Arlington, TX where we lived.  I commuted to Denton, Texas where I attended the University of North Texas.  We both completed our degrees in 1981.  During this time I worked part time as a medical technologist at All Saints Hospital in Fort Worth.  In 1981 I received a teaching fellowship at the U. of North Texas and began work on my Ph.D.  In 1983 I was hired to teach medical technology at Northeast Louisiana in Monroe, LA.  I have been there ever since.  I complete my Ph.D. degree in 1984.  In 1983 I joined the USAF Reserves.  I am  now  a laboratory officer for the 917th Medical Squadron at Barksdale AFB.  When I first joined the Reserves I was in another unit, The 11th Contingency Hospital Unit which was another medical unit.  In 1991 our unit was activated as part of Operation Desert Storm.  We were stationed at a RAF Base in England.  The base was converted into a giant hospital to care for wounded troops for the Gulf War.  After 10 weeks on active duty we came home.
   At NLU (now ULM) I teach in the Medical Technology Department.  In 1995 I was asked to teach part time for the Biology Department after one of the professors died two weeks into the semester.  That semester (Fall) I taught 4 Med Tech classes and 3 Parasitology classes.  This was about twice the teaching load of most of the teachers.  A lot of missed sleep, a lot of stress and no time to relax.  It eventually catches up with you.  In January 1996 I had bypass surgery.
I'll try to watch my stress level in the future.
From 1992 until  1997 I worked on a history degree in history at NLU.  I graduated in 1997.
   Presently, Catherine, John and I are living in Ruston, LA.  Catherine is a Social Worker for the state of Louisiana (But she doesn't want to listen to my problems after a long day).  I commute to NLU in Monroe, thirty-five miles away.  John attends public school in Ruston.  He is an inherently good kid; much better than I was at that age by far. He was named Student of the Month at his school this year and he likes to play soccer.
   About the most fun I have had since graduating from WHS was when I attended our class reunions and when I work on the Reunion Committee.  I cannot adequately express my appreciation to the other members of the Reunion Committee who have spent so much time and effort on our reunions.  Jim Steward and Diane Coker, especially, have done a Herculean job on our reunions.  This web site which Jim has started is truly outstanding.  Thanks to you Jim and Diane for keeping the memory of our Special Times at WHS alive.  Kirby

Working in the school system now I was beginning to wonder about some of the people I went to school with and grew up with. I guess the most important thing that has happened in my life is that I do work for the Waller ISD system as an aide in Special Ed. I've been married to Donald Harless for 15 yrs., second marriage. First marriage I had 4 boys, one died at the age of 12. My husband and I are vol. Chaplains in the TDCJ Prison System here. We work with inmates, counsel them do Bible studies with them and have a Hospitality Program, that is under our Ministry, called Crime To Christ Ministries, Inc. We are every involved with our church and teach 5th and 6th grade Sunday School. Thank you once again in being there and making it so easy to find all of you again.

 My life has been full. I completed two years of college, married, had 5 children and now have 11 grandchildren. The main things that I've accomplished is raise my family and stay married to the same wonderful man for the past 32 years. Now we are living on a farm taking care of cows and loving every minute of it. I am teaching cradle row (birth to 24 months)at church, doing crafts and I still love to sing.

I am a self employed Political Consultant and have owned my own company for 21 years. I do public opinion polling, provide advice on strategy to candidates for public office and produce television and radio commercials. I also provide services for attorneys such as jury selection work. I have been divorced for 16 years and have no children. I have been business partners with John Fred Gourrier (John Fred and the Playboys) for the past 19 years. Rock & Roll is a great hobby and I still enjoy it very much. My other hobby is being a cowboy in Colorado. My brother owns a 400 acre ranch outside of Durango and I keep my horse there. We herd cattle, repair barbed wire fences and do the whole "City Slickers" thing. My plan is to retire to that area but on a very, very small spread. Too many acres means too much work!

Madge Moore and I have been married over 37 years and have two children and 4 grandchildren. Our oldest, Doug, Jr. is a physician here in Bossier/Shreveport and has 2 boys. Our youngest lives in the Houston area and has two daughters who live in West Monroe with their mother. The girls stay with us summers and most holiday vacations and we keep Ryan Douglas (1 year old) on Wednesday nights and Thursday all day.

Madge has gone back to working at a Family Practice medical office in south Shreveport two or three days a week. It is just a few blocks from her folks who still live on Laurie Lane in Summer Grove. We left Southern Hills for north Bossier over two years ago and enjoy being 5 minutes from our grandsons over here in Bossier. I own a couple of businesses, one a shipping franchise representing DHL (Worldwide Express) and the other an Aquamassage business (7th Heaven Aquamassage) which we began last year. I still do a lot of business consulting and a little business brokering for some new franchises and reselling existing businesses.

I am a founder member at the Freddie Couples designed course here in Bossier called Stonebridge and got to play a round with him when we had the grand opening. I just ran my first marathon in Dallas, TX on December 12, 2004...2 days before my 56th birthday. My oldest son, Chip we call him, ran it with me the whole 26.2 miles. We had done 3 half-marathons (13.1 milers) around the country during the year of training to get ready. He and his wife jumped the gun and did their first marathon together in Maui in October, but he ran with me to support my efforts and make sure I didn't kill myself. I still play some tennis with some guys here in Bossier on a fairly regular basis.

After graduating at the top of the first graduating class at LSUS in 1975, I left Western Electric / AT&T that year after almost 8 years with them and have been involved as a general manager, national sales manager, and owner of several business. Most were computer technology and training oriented for 30 years then more diversified since then. We started and sold a small chain of clothing stores, computer stores, a national mail advertising firm now in 25 cities, a business brokerage, and some operations I don't even think about until someone reminds me.

I served on the Caddo Parish School Board for 4 years and then won the Republican Endorsement for Mayor of Shreveport in 1990. However I missed the runoff and Hazel Beard, whom I had beaten for the Republican nod, became our first female mayor. She graduated with me in 1975 and had served on my Board when I was president of the LSU-Shreveport Alumni Association in 1986. I retired from politics and public life after that race, although I still help good candidates from time to time.

I taught on the adjunct business faculty at LSUS for the Advanced Manufacturing Center and helped get that program off the ground. In addition, I have taken both seminary and Bible School courses and have pastored and taught in non-denominational churches and settings since 1979. Madge and I are currently involved in a home fellowship network based in our area and continue doing our house church meetings which we first encountered in 1979 when we lived in Waco, TX and have found most rewarding ever since.

We have been able to take four cruises and plan one this year with our granddaughters. I liked the Caribbean but Madge liked the Alaska cruise the best, I think. We still haven't been to Hawaii, but there is still hope.

As you can tell, I like to write and did a regular column in the local Forum Magazine for quite a while. I have done book and film reviews, sports writing for Golf Connections Magazine and the Forum, edited religious books and business training manuals. I have three chapters on my first book of fiction and have 5 chapters done on Shreveport and Louisiana sports history. I hope to write a layman friendly Bible based doctrinal book in the near future. I have written numerous essays and have edited books and manuscripts for others. If I had my druthers, that would probably be all I would do...but hasn't paid much so far. Therefore it is more of an avocation until something breaks for me in that area.

My dad just died last August 2004, and I was touched by many nice cards I received from classmates and friends. My mom and Madge's folks are in the 80 plus range, so more trials and grief is surely in store over the next few years. God is good, however, and provides the strength to get through it all. We are blessed to have had such good health and to have had our parents and kids for so long.

Madge and I have made all the reunions every 5 years and have enjoyed renewing old friendships every time. We worked hard on the first few reunions, but turned it over to hardier, more responsible folks for the last few, which have just been tremendous. We appreciate Jim Steward for all his hard work with the reunions and this website! If you are still reading at this point, I suggest you get a life (just kidding!) This is good therapy for me and I suggest you try it too. Email me and let me know you have posted your life's story and I'll enjoy reading it, too. God bless us all!

I've lived all around, from Houston, San Antonio, Memphis, New Orleans, 
Atlanta...but am finally back, close enough to feel at home.  Still keep in 
close contact with Donna Albritton & Minnie Bible.  I'm looking forward to
