On Wednesday, May 10th, Jodi (Carpenter) Nelson '90 of Buckhannon wrote; " Currently work at AFP Logs & Lumber in Buckhannon as Office Manager. I landed back in the timber industry after Schlumberger closed their Buckhannon facility in 2016 where I worked as an Administrative Assistant after working for 18 years at Coastal Lumber Company. I was married to my wonderful husband Randy from October 2000 until he lost his battle with cancer in August of 2015. I have two step-children and four step-grandchildren. I met up with fellow classmate Doug Wyatt in July of 2016 and we started dating, we are planning on getting married in the near future. I am blessed to have met someone so special. I am an active member of the Upshur County Christmas Store board. I love spending time with all of my family and friends. I am a die-hard Mountaineer Fan and love to watch the NFL teams...Indianapolis Colts (my husband's favorite team)and the Greenbay Packers (my team). "

On Monday, May 8th, Katharine (Albaugh) Gravelle '60 of Tucson, AZ wrote; " After a lot of thought and decision making, I decided to sell the Lake Powell house and move back to Tucson. I was widowed again in 2010 and took back my first husband's name. My brother, Neil, lives out in the cactus country about 45 minutes from Tucson and I still have friends here. Lake Powell was a scenic wonder and I loved my house but it was just time to come back to the city where there is more to do and seemed more like home. Still being so far away, I don't get back to my beautiful West Virginia hills very often but I'm coming this month (May) to spend some time and I look forward to that. Since BUHS and WVWC days, I've made every possible mistake, had every possible adventure, and - all in all - had a wonderful life. Memories of Sunny Buck are great - Pat's and Starlight and the Dixie Drive-In, cruisin' Main St, the senior trip to NYC (where we left 3 of the boys - "fell asleep at the hotel" was their excuse. Who were you guys? Does anybody want to confess?), football and basketball games, the talent show ("We Are The B-U Girls, And We Are Here To Stay...bump, bump, bump..."), the senior play "Come Out Of The Closet" (Bruce Butterfield and I were the elderly counterfeiters), ice skating parties with Janie and Bruce and Sammy and Rita and Bobby, stolen kisses on Teets Hill and EvUnBreth Acres, hanging out drinking chocolate cokes at the drugstore with Rita Karen and Paula, dancing to "A Summer Place" at the Senior Prom. Sometimes - maybe just for a day - don't you wish we could push a button on a time machine...? I miss y'all! I can't believe it... can it REALLY OVER HALF A CENTURY already? 1960 was only yesterday! How on earth can we be so old on the outside and feel so young on the inside?! (As John Scott used to say, "But when the hell do the Golden Years begin?!) I look forward to the next reunion in 2020 but LET'S HAVE MUSIC AND DANCING AGAIN. I missed that at the 2015 Reunion!! "

On Tuesday, May 2nd, Angela (Cable) Murphy '81 of Barrackville, WV wrote; " I received my undergraduate in Human Resource Management from Fairmont State University and my Masters Degree from MSU. I am employed by Enterprise Information Services as a Change Manager for the DOE. I also teach as an Adjunct for PC&TC. I reside in Barrackville, WV. I married Tim Murphy ('81) in 1989 and we have a son, Gunner who is 15. "

After teaching in Upshur County for 32 years, I retired (I hate that word) in May and took on the position as WV Coordinator for CompassLearning, an educational software company. "
