Mary Cash (Means)
Retired Married 3
Since graduating from NHS, I have lived in Washington DC, Georgia, Germany and finally settled back in West Virginia.  I have 5 grandchildren - 4 girls and 1 boy.  I have been a volunteer for Special Olympics Kanawha County for almost 40 years, and have been serving as director for the last 15 years.  

Looking forward to our 50th class reunion.  So hard to believe that it has been that long ago since our graduation, especially,  since all of us are only "39" and holding.

Retired Editor/Webmaster, National Association of Schools of Music Single Again 1
Well,, I started out writing a detailed summary (now there's an oxymoron for you) of my life since graduation from NHS. I mean, it IS very late at night, and I DO tend to bleed words profusely when I write at night!  So I thought better of it, moved the whole thing to a private file on my computer where no one else need wade through it, and am wondering ... now what the heck shall I write?

So, for now, it will be just this:  After marrying at 17, having a baby, and divorcing at 20, I essentially started my work life in Nitro at West Virginia University Center for Graduate Studies, which relocated while I was there to the WVSC campus in Institute. I enjoyed my job there, but I left at age 22 for northern Virginia in time for my son to start school somewhere other than Putnam County and where I could earn a decent living for my son and me.  I married again at 24 to a man who had custody of his two sons (so you'd think he was a solid guy, right?), moved to Wilmington, NC, and was rescued from that unfortunate union at the age of 29 by my courageous, amazing sister. Returning to Virginia. I reclaimed my maiden name and spent most of the ensuing years there, consumed in work until I became too weary and worn down to continue. Health issues sped up my retirement plans a bit, so in 2014 I retired and returned to the welcome and welcoming embrace of these West Virginia mountains and my beloved family. Home and family (along with blessed rest) have breathed new life into me!  Life is good!  

My son caused me to become a granny at 39. That was fun! I naturally treasured that role and the privilege of spending as much time as possible with my firstborn grandchild as he grew up. My son tragically lost his wife to illness when my grandson was just five. Eventually remarrying, he became dad to two daughters, who are now 14 and 17. My grandson, who is engaged to be married this May, is 27. Time just goes impossibly fast!

I attended our 10- and 20-year reunions, and look forward with excitement to our 50th and to reuniting with old friends and long-lost classmates!

Until then, I'm right here.  Feel free to reach out!
