Waite-Rosen

After living in Savannah, GA for 19 years, I recently moved to Pennsylvania with my husband, Joel Rosen. He is a professor at Moravian College and I am doing Educational research for Lehigh University. I taught Kindergarten for many, many years prior to coming here. I have a son, Travis, (age 16) who stayed in Savannah to live with his father and stay with his friends and his high school. He makes straight A's and is on the tennis team. I don't want to mess that up! I'd love to hear from old friends! MaryKay

Life is GOOD! For a woman, there is something very liberating about turning 40. I'm currently single and loving it. (Divorced, actually.) I never had children, but I love kids, so if you ever visit my home, your kids are always welcome too. I've remained in Columbus with a career at The Ohio State University for the past 20 years. But that's work...for fun I sing...gospel and blues. During the past two years I've been the lead vocalist for a local blues band, called The Zen Blues Band. Please come out and hear us some time. We have a lot of fun, and the audience gets to participate and have fun too. We have several upcoming gigs, but probably the most exciting venue is The Blues Station in the Arena District where we are scheduled to play on Saturday, May 14. Please come out and say hi. Check out our web site for more gigs: www.thezenbluesband.com Send me a message, I'd love to hear from you.

Hi! I'm currently living in Marysville with 2 of my 3 kiddos... Amanda (16), Scotty (8) and Zach (19) lives with his dad. I get back to Worthington quite a bit, as my mom, brother and sister-in-law still live there. I work in Dublin at Nationwide Insurance - and that's pretty much it! Hope to see a lot of you at the Bogey!!

After H.S. I went to Knox College in Galesburg, IL and graduated in 1984 with a B.A. in Psychology. In 1985 I moved to Los Angeles. After job floating for a while, I started training as a legal secretary in 1987 and am still at it 19 years later! Hard to believe. This is certainly not what I thought I would be doing (wanted to be a doctor from 6th grade until freshman year of college) but it is OK. In 1989 I married Scott Fisher at the beach in Santa Monica. In 1993 we moved to Marietta, a suburb of Atlanta, and bought our first house. In 1999 I had a daughter Shayna, and in 2001 a son Jaden. In 2004 we moved to another part of Marietta so Shayna could go to a better school. Before kids I was a quilter and after we finally finish working on our new (old) house I plan to get back to it now that the kids are old enough to play without constant supervision! I also enjoy knitting (which I learned a few years ago and have kept up with) and cross-stitch. I am sorry I will not be able to attend our 25th reunion but school here starts on August 8th!! Shayna will be in 1st grade and Jaden will be in Pre-K. They would not take kindly to taking a vacation 2 weeks later. I have not seen the school calendar yet but in the unlikely event that they have a teacher work day or early release around that time, we'll try to make it. I would like to keep in touch with anyone who is interested so please e-mail me at work! Meg

Since high school I went to OSU got thrown out went back and graduated on the 5 year plan like most of us. Thought I would be the last one to stay in Columbus but like it more than ever.In 1987 I got married to my wife Cathy from Indiana and we just had a little boy named Nate. I have worked as a Real Estate agent since College and own a Real Estate brokerage still located in Worthington and have helped many TWHS grads find homes and investment property. Hobbies are a lot of outdoor stuff like backpacking and kayaking trying to keep up the surf ohio tradition.

Graduated from Ohio State in 1985 with a degree in Industrial Design and a damaged liver from 5 years of rugby. Moved soon after graduation to Dallas, Texas to take a position with Texas Instruments where I stayed for 10 years and continued to play rugby. Finally retired from rugby after 15 years and too many injuries. Married my wife Susi in 1988 (also an OSU Design grad) and have two daughters McKenzie (11) and Meredith (8). In 1997, I left TI to move outside of Boston where I have been with Bose Corporation for almost 8 years as Manager of Industrial Design. In 2005, my role changed and I now head a design team focused on developing Bose's automotive business. I spend a great deal of time on the road, in and out of the US visiting auto shows and our customers. My interests include snowboarding, brewing, technology and working around the yard and house.

I moved to FL right before my senior year at WHS and left all of my friends behind. But 25 years later, I am the mother of 2 teenagers, and doing great. I come home to Worthington often to see my family that still lives there. There are many of you that I would love to hear from and see! My best to everyone! Caroline

Have been in Colorado since '93 and love it. Currently reside halfway between Denver and Colorado Springs. After growing up in the suburbs, I never thought I'd have to drive 15 miles to the supermarket. The mountain views and wildlife make it worthwhile. Happily married since 1995 to a southern gentleman. So glad the reunion is in August. Will make special effort to attend as I'm dying to get to Cedar Point! Nothing compares to America's Roller Coast.

I've been married 24 years (yes to the same man!) and have 2 kids.  My oldest is graduating from Texas Tech and will be marrying in May of 2005. My youngest is 14 and continues to challenge the best of educators!  After a short career as a police/fire dispatcher I resigned to begin my second career as a stay at home mom.  This was a good plan since my husband decided to take a job that has required us to make several moves over the years.  Since graduation, we've lived in Circleville, Pickerington and Strongsville before beginning to see the rest of
America.  After seven years in San Antonio, Texas, we moved to Bridgeport, West "By God" Virginia, for two years and now live in Benton, Arkansas.

Well, it finally happened!  I turned 40, had my midlife crisis, and since I was already divorced :), quit my comfy corporate job and dove into the field of commission sales!  Yes, real estate.  20+ years of (semi) predictability finally got to me.  My oldest daughter started Florida State this fall and my youngest daughter, who is a junior in high school, is turning what is left of my ungray hair, gray.  Okay, truth be told, I did finally concede to some highlights (baby steps). 
Survived hurricane season with mainly power outages and all of the landscaping debris that I should have been maintaining anyway, blew from everywhere and eventually ended up in a pile on the curb for the county to collect.  But other than that, we love living in Jacksonville!  And, we are hosting the next Super Bowl which is big news for a town our size, even if we have to have cruise ships come to town for housing! WHERE ARE THE COSMOS?

After WHS, graduated from Purdue University. Moved to St. Louis and worked in a bank.  Boring!  Got married and moved to Switzerland.  Madeleine was born there and we stayed about 8 years.  Then moved to Atlanta for a few years while I worked for Delta Air Lines.  Got married again ("if at first you don't succeed....") and in 2000 moved to Santiago, Chile.  Still working for an airline.  Madeleine is 12 now.  And my husband, Jorge, has three kids:  Manuel Antonio (15), Margarita (14) and Rosario (11).  My parents are still in Worthington so I get back once or twice a year -- what a beautiful place!  After being away for so many years (25!), you realize how very lucky we all were.....
Somewhere I have some Kindergarten photos from Colonial Hills ... and a
Brownie Initiation photo with Claire Shipman, Kathryn Hizer, Lauren Tyler ..et al.  I'll try to find them and send them along.

Howdy! Have called Texas home since '83 but my pardners still call me a bald-headed yankee. Spent the 80's exploring the west, checking things off life's To Do List, and playing as much golf as possible. Settled down and grew up (mostly) in the mid 90's and married my wonderful wife and became a Stepdad to her son. We were then blessed with beautiful twin daughters who have their Daddy totally wrapped. Get back when I can as my Mom still lives in Brookside after 40 years. Spend the week brokering lumber and the weekends playing with the kids and seeing what I can tear apart and put back together around the house, no ranch
yet.

I teach art to middle school angels from the rural part of South Carolina.  Currently I have 2 children and 1 husband.  I would love to come to our big reunion, but traveling during school is not possible.  I wish it could be in the summer time, but most of you are probably closer than I am.  Have a great time if I don't see you.

I've spent way too much time going to school and even when I finished I never left.  Now, I'm teaching at Otterbein College!  Married one of my students, Frank, two years ago (yes, he's over 18).  One stepson, Carl (16), who is in a "metal" band (opening for a bigger band in Cleveland!).  Still my bright, buxom, blonde self!!  Woohoo!

Living back in Ohio after 7+ years in Alaska. I have three children, Samantha (19), Zachary (13) and Cheyenne (10). Brett Wright (also Class of '80) and I live together in a house we just built in Mount Gilead. Brett has two kids, Coleton (8) and Maxwell (7). When we are all together, it's a kind of semi-controlled mayhem that we love. I still hang out with some of the gang from high school including: Kerry Strayer, Joe Patchen, John Hitzemann, Jeff DeMuth, Larry Bootes and Joyce McKeown. My "spare" time is consumed by the maintenance of this site. It's so much fun to hear from everyone! E-mail whenever the mood hits you!

Three children, Michael, Collin and Danielle, keep me very busy.  All three children are or have graduated from the Worthington School district, which is a dream of mine. One of my children has had Bev Graves and Coach VanArsdale for teachers and yes, they remembered his mother. It is a great feeling to go back to the school district and introduce my teachers to my children. I continue to work as a Steel Buyer for Honda Trading and love my job.  The kids, work and friends keep me busy and very happy.
