I graduated from UCO with a degree in Elementary Ed.  Stay at home mom for the past 8 years and now getting back into teaching.

Tim Main
[St. Louis, MO]
This is now my 26th year as a teacher.  For the past 7 of those, I have been in the tiny village of Rampart, Alaska, teaching mostly grades PK-6 (it’s a two-room schoolhouse).  I love Alaska, and I love my little village, population 50, located in a valley on the Yukon River.  It’s reachable only by plane for most of the year, and I do miss some amenities, especially access to the Mass, but this could be an enjoyable place to finish out my career—who knows? I left the Jesuits in 2005, before ordination, and have been in Alaska since 2008.

Alexandra (Mamary) Nassief
[Saugus, CA]
Have been living and working in the LA area since then. Married Mark Nassief in 1997, and we have two wonderful children; Samantha (born 7/30/01) and Luke (born 10/18/04). We were sorry to miss the reunion!  We had every intention of coming, but work and school schedules got in the way.  We'll be in Norman at Christmas and hope to see everyone then!

Donna (Martin) Barger
[Fuquay Varina, NC]
OK after reading everyone's information I feel like I should be a little more forthcoming. My husband and I have been married for 15 years and we have two children, Joselyn 12 years old and Jordan 4 years old. I graduated from OU in '90 with a BA in Communications and where I met my husband. He graduated at UCO with a BA in jounalism. Due to TV market sizes we have lived in parts of Oklahoma, Florida and Washington. We now currently live in small town outside of Raleigh. Mark, my husband is chief photographer of News 14 Carolina and I teach 8th grade at the local middle school. I do give my students extra credit during football season if they sing the Sooner Fight song! Let me tell you it's hard to be an Okie in TarHeel country. I am currently pursuing a Master's in Educational Administration from NC State. We love the weather here and we don't get back home very often to visit my Dad who still lives in Norman. I love hearing about everyone and if you get a chance drop an email. Take Care

I have raised 8 foster children and have 2 biological children and now have 5 foster grandbabies.  So I guess all I have been up to since leaving High school is Marriage, Motherhood, and working outside of home as well.    Was a substitute Teacher (uncertified) for our school district for a brief time and decided the teaching was not for me but then anybody who really knew me in school could have told you that.

Wow, forgot about the wrong pic being submitted for the yearbook! My husband John and I have been married for 17 years. We met while he was in the Marine Corps stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA. We moved to his home state of Washington in 1992 where he works in the aerospace industry. I have worked for our dentist for 3 years and when I'm not there I am at the kids' school or running them to different activities.  Our daughter Amy was born in 1994 and our son Zachary was born in 1997. They are so much more outgoing then I ever was! It is fun watching them grow up and see life through their eyes. We encourage them as often as we can to make lots of friends and keep in touch with is so
short! It is hard to believe it has been 20 years! I didn't feel old until 80's stuff started being considered retro!!

I teach music at Washington Elementary in Norman!! This is my 23rd year to teach!! I have 2 kids of my own and 2 step children! All are out of the house except my daughter who is 16!!

I have enjoyed singing in church bands in town, New Life and Journey Church, but recently have joined St. Thomas More Catholic Church with my husband. I enjoy singing, writing children's books, being a mommy and a wife, reading, listening to live music, and hanging with my friends and family!

Todd Milliken
[Benbrook, TX]
Wow.. Lots of catching up to do.. Missed the 10 year, and have been looking forward to the 20  year ever since.

Career?  11 years with Target, an executive position with them led me to the desolate wasteland of Wichita Falls, Texas.  I've been with Tractor Supply Company for the past 18 months, and am the manager of their Benbrook (Ft Worth) Texas location.  Big change going from regular retail to selling farm and ranch products, but I haven't been happier.

Married to a beautiful native Texan, Nancy, with the most wonderful 6 year old daughter Emily. My mom and brother still live in Norman, and I am often in town on weekends and holidays.

Jerry Milton

Lori (Minnix) Kemmet
[Norman, OK]
I married Rob Kemmet (class of '86) in 1997. We have 3 lovely children. Kate is 6, Bo is 4, and sweet baby Meg is almost 10 months old. We are very blessed. 

I graduated from OU with a BA in Spanish, and earned my MA in Spanish Literature from the University of Kansas. I stayed in Lawrence for another year working as Miss Kansas. Then, I returned home to teach high school Spanish at Norman High and then Norman North. Currently, I work as the Spirit Coordinator at OU in athletic marketing and promotions. It is an amazing job. And yes, I managed to turn OU football, basketball, and the pom squad into a full-time gig! I also teach Spanish at Bo's pre-school and Kate's kindergarten class. (That is probably the hardest job I have ever done!) My husband is a police detective in Oklahoma City and has been working as an officer there since we married.

Anne (Morain) Kizziar
[Sisters, OR]
I went to OU and got a B.A. in English Ed.  Then I broke the family "7 mile" rule and headed for Colorado where I got my M.A. in Counseling.  I met my husband, Tim, in graduate school.  I thought I'd never see anything west of Colorado, but here we are, living in beautiful Central Oregon.  We have four children.  Josh, Jed, Jenna, and Juhree.

Jeff Morrison
[Norman, OK]

Darrin Moser
[Norman, OK]
Much of the same for the most part, working mostly going to Football and Basketball Games and some Baseball too. When I get time. Also I still go to First Christian Church of Norman, Disciples of Christ and work there and still at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History as Asst. Supervisor of Custodial Services. Recently I had to adjust to turning the Big 4-0!

Don`t worry, it`s not as bad as it sounds guys, even though you have to give up most of your youthful dietary habits and exercise more it's not bad at all! I have lost nearly 30 pounds in the last year and feel better than I have felt in years, a subtle but sad reminder that we are not kids anymore. Also I bought a new truck for the first time in quite a while as well. Outgrew the old one. I always enjoy seing classmates when I see you all so anytime anyone is up for a gathering, keep me in mind.

Update as of 7-29-2010, still working at the same places pretty much doing the same thing on all accounts. Back in April of this year, OU Staff had the awards ceremony in the Student Union Ballroom and I was one of the honorees for having 20 years of employemant and/ or annivesary so I got the first class treatment escorted by Naval ROTC guard to the front of the room with a lot of others and i git to be noticed by President David L. Boren and another one of the dignitairies and got a pin and Certificate and photo with them. Pretty cool for just an ol` boy from Norman, Oklahoma to be imaged with someone of that Stature.

Hope everyone is doing well! Best wishes for all! Boomer Sooner! and keep it real as they like to say these days.

Jamie (Moss) Barker
[Norman, OK]

Amy Murphy
[San Antonio, TX]
I left Norman right before my junior year of high school and moved to Tampa, Fl. where I graduated from a small Catholic high school--but never really connected to any of those folks long term, and went to school with all the people from the class of 86 so long that I really consider them my clan. I graduated from the University of Florida in 90 with a BA in English, stayed and also received a master's degree in English in 1993. I then went to the University of Arizona for my doctorate in English and received a Ph.D. in 1999. Married my husband Ken in 1999 also and in a bizarre twist of fate ended up back in OK at OSU where I was a visiting professor for a year. Later I had an offer for a tenure-track position as an English professor at San Antonio College in (you guessed it) San Antonio, TX. My husband is finishing his doctorate in psychology and will get a job here in either academia or health services--so we're here long term. We have two beautiful daughters Molly-18 months and Olivia 3 years old. We love our life in San Antonio--like entertaining friends at home and travelling as much as we can. Can't wait to come to the renunion and see everybody!

Libby (Murray) Johnson
[Ashburn, VA]
Married to a great guy, Mark. We have two beautiful girls, Laura, age 6 and Hannah, age 4. I am currently a stay-at-home mom.
