Soon, you'll be able to add links in your profile for your Facebook and/or LinkedIn pages, as well as your cell phone number, if you wish, for text messages, which might be helpful for those times that you are in Buckhannon trying to catch up with old friends or if you are moving and don't want to miss any upcoming class reunion news! As many of you may remember, we use to send out weekly emails, but for some, that was too many and/or contained other class information that didn't interest them. Also, some times folks would change email addresses and forget to update their profile until the next time that they tried to use their old email address to logon and couldn't because the old email address had been marked invalid.
To help address these issues and make our website more useful, your notice soon that rather than having one blog page, we'll have a blog page on each class' Homeroom page, and it will only list post from your former classmates as well as those three year ahead or behind you! For example, the blog page for the class of 1972 will list any recent post from the Class of 1969 through 1975.
Until the changes are complete, I hope that you will start using our current Blog page more to not only inform your fellow classmates
about upcoming class events, such as luncheons and reunions, but to also let them know about other classmates and former teachers that you may talk to from time to time. Beginning towards the end of December, I'll start compiling the information on our Blog page into a monthly B-UHS Alumni newsletter.
As always, please help us to spread the word to family members and friends over the holidays who may not know yet about our website. Michael Cowger '74
P.S. If you have pictures that you would like added to your profile or class' Homeroom page, just send them via email as an attachment to email@example.com.

On December 30, 2011 I retired as Trooper 3 Commander of the West Virginia State Police in Elkins after 23 years of service. The State Police was a wonderful career and I sometimes wonder if I will ever get over leaving that wonderful organization. I had planned for many years to begin hunting Africa after retiring from the State police but there was an opening for a DNR Officer in Hardy County when I retired from the State Police. My wife thinks I'm crazy but I enlisted in the DNR as a Law Enforcement Officer and am now assigned to Hardy County working for the DNR. Someday I might be ready to leave the law enforcement field, but for now I'm not quite ready.
