I have been married for 18 years to Scott, we live in Monrovia, MD which is just a bit above Damascus. We have a son named Daniel, he is almost 15 and started as a freshman at Urbana High School this year (UGH, again!!!). I have been a Mortgage Loan Underwriter since getting out of Maryland and just took a break last year to be at home to make sure my teenager stays on the correct path. You know how that goes!!! So far so good, he's a great athlete and student, unlike of course his mother. For that I am so thankful! My husband is an executive for BMW and enjoys his work very much, he has very long hours but I pass the time playing golf, make sports memory boxes, volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Frederick County and the Frederick County School Early Reader Program.

STEFFI GITLIN'S FREEDOM CD BREAKS THROUGH TO COMMERCIAL AND NPR  RADIO STATIONS NATIONWIDE Mon, Aug. 14 2007 MY CD is called “FREEDOM,” a musical essay on love, freedom, and democracy. It  is very retro in nature with feelings of the 60’s and 70’s, yet asking the questions  of today.

Here are some PD comments: "I just added the  songs to medium rotation. I like her music because it sounds like late 60's, early  70's folk /pop muisc." WJFL 101.9 " I'm adding Steffi Gitlin's Freedom to my spins  starting today" KXAZ 93.3 "Getting 10 to 12 spins" WBNL 1540 AM world's most  listened to internet radio station.

My husband (Chris, Woodward Class of 1975) and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We have two children - Jacqueline is 14 and will be attending Wootton High School this fall (scary thought) and Brett is 11 and will be starting at Frost. With baseball, soccer and competitive gymnastics schedules, not to mention now adding Wootton Poms to the agenda, we keep quite busy with the kids. For the past 4 years my sister and I have been busy running our family foundation which we established in 2002 after my dad passed away from melanoma skin cancer. It keeps me challenged doing many of the same types of marketing/ advertising activities I had done previously in my "career life" and it is very gratifying to see the changes we are able to make in the lives of many children and their sun habits. Life is good! Sorry I won't be able to see everyone at the reunion, but look forward to hearing all about it.  6/25/06

Kendal Varga was in our thoughts when we named our girls... I have built up a nice community banking consultant practice after 23 years with Suburban.

Hi thanks for putting this together!  The website is fantastic.  I am sorry I will be out West for the 25th reunion and not able to attend. I married Susy Brazelton six years ago and we are the proud parents of 2 dogs right now, they haven’t been to the Vet in years.  We will take them in as soon as ski season/mtn biking/fly fishing/pheasant hunting seasons are over!  I am so proud to read about all the accomplishments and the families of my classmates.  I am very sad to hear about Dave Ashby, he was a great guy and I wish his family well.  Del Chinnery, you are a hero for helping our friends in Iraq.  6/23/06

We also enjoy our family condo in OC near 94th street- if we are in OC, chances are we will be at the Bull on the Beach on 94th. 09/14/2011

I've been married since April '89. My husband (Steve) and I have 3 kids: Kristin (13), Kevin (11), and Keith (9). I work at the National Cancer Institute, NIH. We bought a house in our old neighborhood (Old Farm) in 1998. Our daughter is going to Tilden MS - which is located now in the "old" Woodward. It's pretty strange walking down the halls and remembering back to the "Good Old Days". I keep in touch with Leslie Seidell (who also moved back to Old Farm) and Janet Vaccaro - they are both from the class of 1982. 6/27/06
