Yes, apparently the 'voice of reason' has resonated in the halls and offices of Weber County Schools and (more importantly) in the Principal and Assistant Principal's Office(s).

4/22/2017 R.I.P. RHS Track & Field Coach Neville Peterman
It is with a heavy heart that the RHS Class of 1983 Reunion Committee shares the news of the passing of RHS Track & Field Coach Neville Peterman.
Aside from Coach Peterman's ties to Roy H

Coming up for air, thought I would say hello- it's been a busy, busy 29 years...hard to believe that much time has gone by.
I am living/working in the SF Bay Area as an environmental scientist (since 1998).
Prior to that I lived in the Washington D.C. metro area (MD) working at NASA on two
two spectacular programs (EOS Satellite System-Global Climate Change remote sensing from space-tracking environmental changes on Earth; also worked for NASA's Space Science Data Center/World Data Center A for Rockets, and on aK-12 international environmental education program, Global Observations to Benefit the Environment-GLOBE, all from 1990-1998.
I have met some amazing, interesting people over the years and worked with several astronauts and professional climate scientists and soils scientists while earning my degree in Environmental and Resource Sciences (originally started majoring in geology/environmental geology)-Initially I attended two community colleges (in CA and MD) and the U of MD for many, many years going part time while working full time at DoD and NASA and raising my son while my husband flew the V.P., Secretaries of State, etc. aboard Air Force 2.
As a military spouse I got the chance to be catered to on AF 2 with several other spouses back in the 1990s, flying up to the Statue of Liberty and Massachusetts. Military spouses sacrafice a lot to support the military members and their missions, so this was a neat opportunity to experience. I've also met some wonderful people through the military while living for a time in Germany, including interfacing with many Generals over the years- I even met one of the Generals/Commandants for the Army over in Germany that graduated from Ogden High School when my Dad graduated- small world eh?!
I was also lucky to be able to travel to Europe for NASA in the 1990s promoting their Earth Observing System satellite program in my 20s- an awesome experience I fell in to because the Federal Govt/DoD was in a hiring freeze and I could not get employed in DC of all places-so I drove around the block from my new house in 1990 and found a company that was a NASA contractor, and the rest they say is history- I became a scientist-but after many arduous years of study. It's fun, challenging, and also can be cut throat....water science will always be that way as we battle for natural resources to the end.
Professionally, I've been working on water quality, water rights and water supply issues in CA for a very long time and now see so many people that I have interfaced with over the years-it's like graduating high school and seeing old friends as I move around to new work positions. I currently work with some folks I met 12 years ago when moving back to CA from MD and finishing up my degree.
I have a handsome son named Ryan and he and I each have a pit bull mix and want to rescue more of these dogs in need. Ryan studied music engineering/recording arts, and learned/practiced the fine art of beer pong. All those years of driving him from school to drum, trumpet, and guitar lessons has paid off....the beer pong, well...those are other stories for other times...
Ryan was born in CA in 1989 and we had to leave CA 1991 so my husband could work at Andrews AFB/fly AF 2. (He and I met in Ogden of all places back in 1984 when I worked at the Hilton, and the IRS, just as I was transferring to work at Hill AFB- so I guess it was meant to be...see you can get out of UT! Over the years, though, it seems UT is a great place for opportunity.
I do travel back to visit my folks and brother and other family members when possible..I've learned that you can take the girl out of the small town but you can't take the small town out of the girl!- I much prefer living in small, quaint towns rather than big cities-but I so enjoy seeing the beautiful mountains when I come home...the visitors I'd greet while working at the Hilton would always say that and I remember just looking at them and not really getting it- move away and you realize those mountains are also spectacular and so close...just beautiful, and the people are more down to earth (well for the most part it seems in comparison).
On the side I property manage, remod, and enjoy real estate purchases. We own two houses at this point and I am working on getting a real estate license, and to purchase more in the future.
I attended law school for one year and over the years have learned I have a knack for law, and like to fight the good fight-which I've had to do more than a few times (for myself and those who cannot help themselves), so I may go back after my son is through with school...then maybe run for a City Council seat. Ryan is the priority still...and traveling to HI whenever I can...I think I must have lived there in a previous life as it feels like my other 'home' each time I go back.
Anyhow, this is a quick hello- hope all is well with any of you that visit this profile- Usually I just like to visit other's profiles but decided to say hello this time around and tell a little about what I've been up to.
