CAN YOU BELIEVE IT IS FINALLY HERE!!!! I can't wait to see everyone at our class reunion. Who ever thought it would come this fast. It does not feel like we are that old. Well I hope everyone is doing well. I have had a RUFF few years. My Godmother passed, My little sister passed in Oct.04, and the little girl I raised is not a little girl anymore. She no longer stays with me. When ever I do have kids I am so praying for a little boy. I can deal with them better at that teenage stage. I am working at St.Francis Hospital as a unit secretary on the cardiac floor. I work nights and I feel like I am missing everything, now that I dont have a child to take care of anymore. I am single with no kids. but really enjoying myself:) I HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE AT THE REUNION!!! We all know that CLASS OF 98 WAS THE BEST TO COME OUT OF EAST HIGH.
(kind of like my name now:)
keep in touch

Fellow graduates of 1-9-9-8...Its a new year in 2004, and so many things have changed but the majority still remains the same...I graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College in California with an A.A in Communications(yeah, i changed majors)that Chemical Engineering is just too much...I have 25 hours left at Arkansas State University to attain my B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies w/emphasis toward Communications...Black Jesus willing I'm finish by the end of the Fall semester, I will return(ANOTHER YEAR AND HALF OF SCHOOL IN JONESBORO) and work toward getting another B.A. in Physical Education.That said and done, I plan on heading back to California to enter someone's Masters program (ANOTHER YEAR AND A HALF OF SCHOOL IN "CALI") toward a Physical Education degree and become a (B-ball) head coach for a highschool program or start off as an assistant coach for any college level program. I still have hoop dreams(though i don't play at the moment) cause I can still preform so going overseas to play is still an option, but incase Black GOD wants different for me I have a few Degree's too fall back on......Still black and still out like Dr. Winston...May GOD BLESS/PROTECT

Just an update! A sistah is proud to say that after SIX YEARS at The University of Memphis, she is FINALLY graduating on December 18, 2004 with a B.A. in journalism! The journey has been tough, but it has been worth it. From Boise, Idaho to Allentown, PA, meeting LL Cool J and seeing the President and John Kerry speak in the same week. It's a journalist's dream!
And the name change is just a technical thing. I am not married, divorced or anything like that. I am glad to see all of you doing well. Stay positive.

Greetings Once Again,
Well I just graduated from Ohio University with a M.Ed. degree in College Student Personnel. I will be moving to New Hampshire in July to work for Dartmouth College (ivy league) as an adminstrator. I am still active with my sorority (Skeee Wee). I will be in the working world 3-5 before I return back to school for my Ph.D./J.D. I hope to be president of a liberal arts college in my lifetime. I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel. So far I have been to Barbados, Hong Kong, Fuzhou China, and next week I will be going to Jamaica. It is amazing to go to different parts of the world and to see that there is definitely life outside of the US. I encourage you all to do it some time.
Peace and Love,
Erica Robinson

Tiffany Snyder [last updated April, 2006]
I was looking back over this page and felt the need for an update. If you get a chance, check out -http://www.easthighalumni.com/Members.asp- as well. Interesting updates too.
My last post said I had graduated with a B.S. in Pol. Sci and would be attending law school, yeah, well, that didn't work out, but I'm overjoyed that it didn't. After working on getting in the law school for two years and being unsuccessful at it, I found my way into the Master of Arts program in English back in Chattanooga. I absolutely love what I'm doing right now. I will be graduating in May with my degree and teaching Freshman Composition beginning in Fall 06. I've loved this program so much that wondered why I didn't major in English in undergrad, but then I realized that at that time, I was choosing my course for my life instead of letting God guide me like I should have and that He has me exactly where I should be at the exact time He meant for me to be here.
Before coming back to Chatt, I loathed that idea, but I love my big town/little city and I doubt I will ever move back to Memphis though if God tells me to, I can only obey. It's awesome to see so many "success" stories, but I suppose greatness is infectious and it disperses like a fire.
I'm still in love and can't complain one bit about the course my life has taken. No kids for now, but that's just the time being. As previously mentioned and you probably all remember, I helped raise my brother's kids and though that experience matured me, I've enjoyed my time away from parenting. I know that experience prepared me for something greater, but that time hasn't come yet. Kids are wonderful blessings, blessings I've not yet received.
Congrats to all the degrees obtained, kids produced and careers started. I wish you all the best.
Be the you God intended and enjoy life.
ciao TNS

Hello, hello, hello fellow classmates of 1998. It is almost that time to where we will see each other after ten years (for some of us). Time sure does fly. Well, things are going well with me. I am a family woman. lol... Still married (4 years) with 2 boys (2 1/2 years & 2 months). NO GIRLS! Congratulations to those who have gotten married over the years and have had children. Marriage to me is great and motherhood is a blessing, I love the lifestyle. I am excited to see how everyone is doing and eager to see how some have matured over the years. GOD has had to humble me and I am trully grateful for it. I hope that all is well with each of you and hopefully I will get to see you in the upcoming year. Take Care and may God bless you and your family.

Whats up everybody, it makes me happy to see that everyone is doing so well. After highschool I joined the navy and after an honorable discharge I established residence in Charleston SC. I guess that I was running from my problems but now i really would like to return and find my parents who i have seen only once since high-school. Now i am doing much better and I am a drum and bass dj and trying to start my own production label. I also plan on going to school to continue the electronics training that I recieved in the Navy. I also have a beautiful woman of three years and i am planning to marry her soon. I would like to say to everyone to be strong and keep Jesus in your life at all times.

Hello, fellow members and friends of the Class of '98. I just wanted to stop through and say hello and give an update of what I am doing. I have graduated from the University of Memphis with a B.A. in Criminal Justice. Right now I am considering pursuing a M.A. in Public Administration, but still have not decided. I have a son who will be 2 in Nov. and I read the other profiles and I have to agree that it has been a joy and a struggle to be a parent, but I am blessed everyday to be able to do it successfully. I am still very close to a few '98 graduates, mainly Alberta Johnson, Verlinda Robinson and Chiketa Lewis. I wish everyone much success in life and keep on doing you and take care. Can't wait to see you all at the reunion. Last but not least I want to say R.I.P. to Natasha Rossell. We became cool in college and we both majored in criminal justice. I just want to say that we miss you and I'll never forget you.

Hello classmates! This update is well overdue. I was in such a hurry to get to Dillard University, but I only stayed a year. I came back home, and graduated in 2002 from the University of Memphis (B.S. Biology). I got married not long after that. I am currently enrolled in the cytotechnology program at UT Memphis, and scheduled to graduate May 27, 2005. My husband and I are currently living in Bartlett, were my husband works as a police officer. We don't have any childrem yet, but they're in our plans.

It's good to see that so many people are doing well these days. I am doing well myself. I graduated from UT Knoxville in May 2003 with my B.A. in Urban and Regional Planning and Development. I am still residing in Knoxville, although I do travel quite a bit with my job. I am working for DeRoyal Industries, a medical supply company in Powell. Yes, I seem to have gotten stuck here, but my job is moving me to Nashville later this year. So, that is something to look forward to. I am also looking forward to 2008! See ya then...

Hello everyone, I know this profile is long overdue. I've checked out the website a couple of times and have enjoyed reading about all the wonderful things my classmates are doing. And I have to say, that I am truly proud of my class! Well, as for me I graduated from The University of Memphis in '02 with a BA in Communication and a son named Jalen!! Although, he was not in the my plans I take pride in knowing that he was in God's and I am honored to be his mom. After graduation I began working as an Account Executive at International Paper (with Quita B.) and working on my MBA in Marketing - again at The University of Memphis. However, as fate would have it I was laid off from IP and then halted the MBA study and picked up education. I am now teaching at Westwood High (Geometry and Algebra I) and finishing up my masters in teaching. I want so much that I drive myself like crazy -- so of course this is not my final educational or career destination (I hope). I still plan to attend law school in Atlanta (recently took the LSAT and did good) and I want to finish up that MBA I started. Hopefully, I can get it all in without killing myself, and while managing to be a good mom for Jay (who'll be attending kindergarten in the fall - my doesn't time fly).
I would also like to say that while reading some of these articles I found quite striking the underlying prejudice that those without kids seem to have towards those with kid(s). I'd just like to say that it's not that we lost our minds, but rather that we found ourselves in a situation were a choice had to be made. And that choice was to either take on the responsibility of parenthood or to dismiss it, and each of us chose to take it on. It has neither been easy nor glamorous, but for all I've learned and gained I'm grateful. I've learned how to be less selfish and how to love unconditionally. I learned that there are several ways to success and I've learned that I have within me the power to realize all my dreams and achieve my full potential even with the extra responsibilities of motherhood. I would not suggest this path not even for myself, but it has been amazing to see God working through me to shape this incredible child that will surely one day make a difference in this world. So, if there is anyone reading this that feels like or once felt like I did - ashamed of what I considered a mistake - hold your head up and know that God placed those/that little one(s) in your life and know that although it was not in your plans, God, the creator of all, knew when he created you that you would create this life...it was ordained. So, take that child and turn out a masterpiece! My class voted me most likely to succeed and without a grain of doubt I know that no matter what socio-economic or any other status I reach my greatest accomplishment will be Jay.
I love you all and wish you all the best--
Mindfulness and compassion to each of you--
Angela J. Wright

There's a party everyday of the week. Atlanta is a very progressive city as far as the employment of African Americans in executive positions.
