Yes! Attending Reunion

After graduation, I attended Panola and graduated from Lamar University (Lamar Tech) Began my teaching career in Humble ISD, Kingwood, and retired from Carthage ISD after 32 years! I taught Spanish( thank you Mr.Wooley )and Drama-Speech( thank you Orita Morrison! Beginning in 2000, I wrote and directed the Senior Play. For a total of 12 years I had the joy of creating lasting memories for the Senior Class...directing and writing "their" senior play!
J All of the " plays" were musicals! ( Thanks Mr. Ed Stone
No, music was not original. I used the most famous hits of the 50's, 60's , and 70's. For 5 years, I started and directed a Senior Adult Ukelele band! With 40+ Senior Adults from the ages of 60-82, we traveled to Washington DC and all points in between! It is still one of my most cherished of memories!


Jim has 4 children, 3 girls and one boy! Between them they have 11 children with one set of twins!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Travel! Most incredible trip was 15 days in Italy- renting a car- catching the trains - riding in gondolas and boat taxi in Venice. Driving all over Tuscany area , staying in bed- in breakfast, and agriturisimos. Taking a 7 day cruise to points in Mexico and Jamaica. Traveling in our motorhome to Colorado, Mackinac Island in Michigan, North Carolina and Chicago ( and states in between!) A cruise to Alaska!
