I have been telling everyone that we had 760 people in our graduating class, (but we show 733 on this website.)

Paul Gorelick

I believe you are correct about the 760

Dennis, where do you get all this energy to do all this? We are grateful for your efforts.

Wow - this is great. Thanks for all of your hard work pulling the class together through social networking! I don't get to many reunion things so it has been a great way to reconnect with folks from South. It has been a real test of my memory :)

Thanks for the kind comments, Paul, Mary, Dan, Al, & Christine.
Please get the word out about this website!
We only wish we would have done this sooner; before last year's reunion!
We plan on having even better things on this site in the near future, so check back often!

I'm really glad you posted the Senior pictures with our names. I wanted to request it. But didn't know how much effort it took. You are AWESOME!

Dennis -- I didn't see Kevin Oldham's name on the list. I know he died in the 1990s after an amazing early classical piano career in NYC. I recall reading in the KC paper about the Reverend Phelps protest at Kevin's funeral. Wasn't he in our graduating class?

Hi all! Laura you are right about Kevin Oldham. Kevin passed away in 1993 after a short but notable music career. He was buried here in Kansas and unfortunately you are also right about the Phelps cult picketing his funeral.

Hey friends, thank you for your comments and Dennis, for working so very hard on this website!! we just had our 30th reunion, which was a blast, but are there things still in the works through the social directors of Dennis Lindsey and John Hammond for a "are we really all turning 50 this year?" party in 2009 or 2010? some of us, will be 50 in 2009, ugh....can't be ...tell me it's not so....but just wondered if there is anything being discussed....
also, Dennis, I love the music you added.
Reminds me of Banana's Disco.
Is anyone interested in hearing about our class members who have passed on? I know I was shocked at the number and the causes of their deaths. Truly makes me appreciate forums like this to stay connected, especially as we become "middle aged" and I did say "become". Signed young at heart, Caroline Crouthers

We will now list Kevin Oldham as a graduate from our class even though I think Kevin graduated from another High School, Shawnee Mission West.
I will also post his "obituary" for those that are interested.

Thanks for all your efforts in putting together this page. I haven't had the time to get on facebook but that is next. It is nice, even though I wasn't with the "in" crowd back in high school to see where everyone has been and plans to go. It is amazing how a few years changes everyone. Thanks again.

Hey Dennis, You're doing a great job here. I've connected with people I haven't seen in 30 years. Keep up the good work. Is there a class of '79 web site we can check out?
