THEN BIO BLURB NOW

Dan Baldwin
[Phoenix, AZ]
After high school I joined the Air Force. There I worked on multiple types of airplane computers, I spent most of my military career in Lakenheath England. After the military thing, I worked for a Japanese company in Tokyo which eventually led me to Boston, MA. I consulted with every major high tech company there and now I'm working for an EDA vendor in Phoenix, AZ as a Technical Lead in sales. I have 1 son and he will be graduating NHS this May. I've traveled the world but I come back to Norman for family visits on a semi-regular basis.

I would love to relive my last 20 years over and over again, it's been way to much fun. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces next year. If you knew me in HS please feel free to contact me. My memory hasn't been that great but it comes back with the right words.
 
 

Jamie (Baldwin) Pettey
[Ft. Supply, OK]
Seems like a life-time since 1986...but a good one. I was married for 10 years and had one son as a result (JT).  I raised my now ex-husband's two oldest kids (YIKES!!!) I spent 9 years in college. Owned a successful business for 5 years. In 2002 I got a divorce, and started all over at age 35. I moved to NW OK, and got re-married. My husband is a Fire Chief, and works for DOC. We have a daughter (Alexis) and son (Stetson). I am working for DOC, as a drug/alcohol counselor for RID corps in NW OK! I LOVE MY JOB! I get to deal with some of the juvenile delinquents of Oklahoma! We are very proud and blessed with the little ones, and have a wonderful family. Can't wait for the reunion to see everyone.
 
 

Ken Ballou

Played College ball for a couple of years, started working and moved to Rogers, AR. Been here since 1991. I am a Firefighter/Paramedic for the Bentonville Fire Dept. in Bentonville, AR. I have 3 boys - Blake, Elijah, and Noah Kyle.  

Cheryl (Barnard) Chisum
[Norman, OK]
Married with 3 children.  

Allison Barnes
[Chicago, IL]
I work in Chicago at an advertising agency on clients as fun as Sharp Aquos televisions (wish I had one) and on clients as boring as Dow Chemicals.

On a more personal note, I have become addicted to travel, both for work and for pleasure. My favorite trips include Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Hong Kong.

Most surprising fact for those who remember me: I graduated from Second City's Improv Training Program. Not surprising: I was definitely the straight man surrounded by great comics!
 

Jan (Barnes) Hodnett
[Norman, OK]
I have earned a bachelors degree and I am teaching Elem PE in the Norman Public School District. I also coach both Varsity Cheer and Pom at Norman North HS. My daughter is a cheerleader and a Tri-Delt at the Univ of Oklahoma.

Susan (Barry) Lockhart
[Cary, NC]
I graduated from OU with a degree in Sonography in 1992. I met my wonderful husband while doing a clinical rotation at the VA Hospital in OKC. I got married in 1993 to John Lockhart (class of 1981) and am VERY happy with our lives together. We have lived and worked in OK, CO, NC, and TX.

I currently do Adult Echocardiography at a hospital in Richardson, TX and my husband does Pediatric and Fetal Echocardiography at Medical City in Dallas. We currently have no children due to infertility issues but still have faith that something good will happen soon. We do have 2 sweet dogs (they are my babies for now).

UPDATE:  Our prayers were answered.  I gave birth to 2 beautiful baby girls on Dec. 11th, 2005.  Their names are Caroline and Megan.  I'll try to post pics soon.  One looks like John and one looks like me.  :)
 

Greg Barton
[OKC, OK]
I was in the Army for a while after high school, and went to college at Oklahoma Christian and OU. I was a grunt manager at The Journal Record Newspaper in OKC from 1995-2004 and have moved on to bigger and better things. In my free time I've done a lot of remodeling/selling of old houses and love it. Never been married, but was engaged for quite a while. I live by myself in an old renovated house and enjoy life as much as possible! (Even with gray hair and almost being bald).

Brenden Bartrug
[Norman, OK]
A lot has happened since the 20 year reunion.  I finally found a job, got laid off and immediately found another that I have had almost 2 years now.  Plus the best part is I got married in April 2008.  Lisa and I welcomed Haleigh into our lives 9 months later as we wasted little time in starting a family!  My oldest, Lyndsey is now a freshman in high school.  We all want to move to Norman so keep your fingers crossed and if you hear of any health care accounting jobs let me know!

I finished my Masters of Science in Nursing in 2010 and we moved to Kailua Kona, HI in 2011. We love living in Hawaii and it will be fun to see everyone in 2016.

Scott Berglan
[Norman, OK]
Lovin' Life!  Married Lancia in 1993. She is an RN and the best lifemate one could ask for. We have three children: Darcy, Jill, and Zane. After HS I worked my way through college until I got that little piece of paper. Since then the US Postal Service and the State Department of Education have paid the bills. For the last 5 years I have been blessed to serve at CrossPointe Church as the pastor of adults and administration. It is a blast ministering in Norman and having the opportunity to be a part of a great work with many of you. (I still can't believe they pay me to have this much fun!) See ya in '06.
 
 

Katherine (Betts) Staggs
[Norman, OK]
After high school I got my accounting degree from OU and then got married and went to work in the OKC area as an accountant. (Now how many people can top THAT kind of excitement?!)

I am currently employed as the Controller for Braum's. My husband (Gregg) works at OU. We have been married almost 15 years. Wow! Can that be possible!? We have no children and no pets - which I think probably simplifies life a great deal. :)

I look am looking forward to reconnecting with some old friends and acquaintances at the reunion.

I briefly worked at an animal hospital as a receptionist (fun job) before we started having kids. Don worked for Texas Instruments and then InFocus Systems through 1998.  He was a pastor on staff at Fellowship Bible Church North in Plano for 8 years. In 2006 Don started consulting work around team building and leadership development with businesses, universities, churches and individuals via idynamx.  June 2008 - November 2009, he was an executive pastor on staff at Journey Church in Norman.

We have four kids: Megan('95), Kate('97), Jacqueline('00) and Ethan('03)...and two dogs, two fish, and four birds.  I have enjoyed painting murals and teaching art lessons for kids over the years and I homeschooled our two oldest kids in their early grades.  I enjoy time with our family, photography and reading.  We love getting out in nature -- especially here in the beautiful Pikes Peak Region.

Hard to believe it's been that long already.  Since high school I have done 15 years in the corporate world as an Accountant and since retired to be a full time mom.  My husband Gabriel is a successful Financial Advisor and we have 13 month old twin girls and a new baby boy due in December.  I also have a 7 year old son from a previous relationship.  Together we have a busy family.  From cub scouts and sports activities to chasing the twins the fun never stops.  It will be fun to catch up with old friends.

Joy (Brock) Link
[Tulsa, OK]
I went to OSU in the fall of '86, met a great guy my junior year named Josh Link. Graduated with a degree in elem educ in '90.  Moved to Arlington,TX.  Married Josh on January 5 '91.  It was the worst icestorm in Norman's history and most of the highways were closed, needless to say it made a rainy wedding day seem glorious.  The day after our wedding my dad suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and we spent our honeymoon in the Baptist Hospital hotel (that was interesting). My dad is still living thanks to my devoted mom and some amazing physicians, however he is quite disabled and no longer walks.  I taught for a couple of years in Arlington (5th & 6th) and Nashville,TN (4th). We moved back to Tulsa in '93 and eventually I ended up in pharmaceutical sales with AstraZeneca.  Now I'm a stay-at-home mom with 4 amazing kids (Carter-10, Audrey-9, Asher-5, and Caroline-3) and a new Westie puppy named Millie.  I stay busy volunteering as art coordinator at the kid's school, playing tennis, gardening, and reading which is very seldom as there are rarely any quiet moments with 4 kids.  We are active at First United Methodist Church, entertain a lot and enjoy a little travel.  We had a bit of a rocky start with some rough spots along the way but it's been an amazing journey.  Missed the 10 can't believe it's the 20.  Look forward to seeing everyone and a huge thank you to everyone involved in coordinating the reunion.

After high school I went to first William Woods College in Fulton, Mo then came back to Norman and attended O.U. for 6 years, completed my masters degree there. Not much has changed since highschool-never married, no kids. I have been with my best friend, Mike for three years I feel silly calling him my "boyfriend" since I'm almost 40 years old! ha!  He is in the NAVY, the last in my tour of dating various branches of military guys - what is up with that? Maybe it is the uniforms? We have one daughter, Snugs, well ... she is actually a "rotten" weiler dog, but she's our baby and we spoil her rotten. This is a great website! Hope to see all you guys at the reunion.

After HS I attended the Univ. of Oklahoma. In 1991 I became a Private Investigator/PS for a firm in Norman. In 1999 a professional tragedy caused me to re-evaluate my career choice. I am now happier and feel like I’m doing something positive.

Oh…During that time I spent my nights playing drums, both locally and nationally, for my band. Check us out: http://members.cox.net/theyoungguns/

I didn’t attend the 10 year reunion (I was a little bummed that it had actually been 10 years…but have since come to grips) I look forward to seeing everyone at the 20 year reunion.
