Comments:

After High School I spent the summers in London with my aunt, uncle and cousins and traveled around Europe. I attended California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, CA where I earned a BA in Sociology and another in Theology. After graduation I became a Lutheran Youth and Camp director and lived in San Diego. I then received a scholarship to Oslo, Norway where I went to graduate Art School. When I came home I married my college love, Tad Wygal. He promptly moved me up to Northern Idaho/Montana where we lived on a 750 acre ranch in NW Montana. We had tons o horses, chickens, turkeys and dogs. In 1989 my dad asked us to move down to Phoenix to help with his steel company so we came home to Arizona. We moved back and ended up living near my old friends Sue and Greg Gilbreath. I was 'Aunt TaTa' to their children and when we adopted our 3 day old boy, 'Logan' the Gilbreath kids helped feed and play with Baby Logan. We had several SHS friends that we spent time with when the kids were small. We spent time with the Bielli's and the Reaves' and even Sue Rufflo came by when she was home.

My husband became a Highway Patrol Officer and was stationed up in the Grand Canyon area
in Williams, Arizona where we've been the last 12 years. I'm now an artist (mostly pottery) and work in the studio Tad and my dad built up here in Williams. We live in a old Victoran house built around 1888. We have a BIG Boston Great Dane that thinks he is human.

Our son Logan, the love of our lives, is adorable (some say he looks like David Archuletta from Idol, but I think he's way cuter) Logan play's football and lifts weights for the highschool and his dad helps coach the team. Logan is a good student and OH did I mention how cute he is?

God has really blessed our life and we have gotten to travel all over the world with our family (Kim, my sister and her kids). We have been to Kenya, Peru, Belize, Guatamala, Ireland, UK and Alaska.

My wonderful dad died in 2007 and so many of my old friends from high school came and we told all the funny stories about him we remembered. It made me so happy to know how many of you loved our family too. Thankyou.

As some of you know I was diagnosed with MS in 1979 .With the support of my family and friends I have lived a fairly normal life. About 8 years ago I was rediagnosed with Familial Episodic Axtaxia and am seeing the leading neurologist in the world for FEA and I am on his study at UCLA Medical Center.That means as soon as they figure out how to cure it or treat it I'll know,which is very hopeful.

I hope to be able to see you at this reunion. We have a family wedding in California also during that time but who knows maybe it will work out.

School Story:

Getting to school was fun. Sue Heslep's older brother had a cool 65 Mustang and he would give us a ride which was nice but he would make us duck down in the back seat so no one would know he had his dorky little sister and her dorky little friend with him.

The next year I upgraded to the back of Greg Bielli's pickup truck. I don't think I ever got to sit in the front seat... so sad.

The next year was pure style. Scotty O's GTO convertable and once in a blue moon, Frank Boxburger's little sportscar and whatever fancy car Mike Anderson was driving at the time. He changed cars like most people change their underwear.

Last but not least my dad let me use the old 1965 maroon Corvair with black interior and no AC. Sue Rufflo lovingly called it the 'Purple Turd.' That car was given to my son by my dad and it sits in our garage as I write this. I remember squishing 12 girls in that car to go to swim practice.

I must say when Billy Marcotte came by last weekend to tell me about the reunion I pulled out my year books. I only have 1976 and 77 for some reason. I got a little nervous the more I read the comments written there. The word 'crazy' kept popping up? Please don't tell me too many stories about how obnoxious I was, just accept my apologies!!!!!

I remember having a lot of fun hanging out in Miss Fitch's classroom and I was in love with Mr. Walls even though I stunk at math. Spanish, I dont even want to remember.

I pretty much went to school to socialize.... My dad used to say, "Tracy, is life just a bowl of cherries to you?" and I thought it was a trick question, " Of course Dad!!" I had a blast in high school, so many good friends, so much silliness.
