Sue Barnard [last updated February, 2015]
Hello Mustangs! Morgan Lynn (Class of '73) and I married in 1977 and were blessed with two amazing children, Daniel Lynn - 1982, and Melanie Lynn - 1984. I graduated from Memphis State with an undergraduate degree in Social Work and then later graduated from there again with a Master's of Arts in Teaching. We have remained in the Memphis area all these many years, currently living in Germantown where I teach for the Germantown Municipal School District. Best memories from my years at East: Square dancing in 3rd grade in the basement of the elementary school; slapping the ceiling in the annex during 7th and 8th grades (which low and behold was filled with asbestos); and the many band friendships during my high school years with my long time East buddies and my new Lester buddies. Loved being a Mustang!

We have been married 20 years and have six wonderful children.(Yes we do know what causes that!) And, yes, they were all on purpose! They are: Erin, 17, Patrick 11, Andrew, 10, Emily, 6, Anna, 5, and Elizabeth, 3. We have a wonderful life and are in the process of building a house on 3 acres in the Mt. Pisgah area of Cordova.

Feel free to email me or look me up on facebook. I actually knew more people from the class of 1976 because I did the summer school thing after 10th grade in order to skip the 11th grade so I ended up graduating the same year as my brother Stephen Haynes.

Ervin C. Johnson [last updated December, 2007]
What a great website. Here is my life in a nutshell.
After my memorable time at East, I went to Memphis State,"Tiger High", on the 5 year plan, still hard to say University of Memphis. I became a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity and spent four and a half wonderful years enjoying college and fraternity life. I moved to Atlanta in 1990 then moved to Los Angeles in 1998. After 9-11, I moved back to Atlanta and worked in management for Day Hospitality, Crowne Plaza Hotels and am currently working as a Director of Sales for a 400 room Marriott in suburban Atlanta. It is hard to believe that I have now been in the hotel business for 31 years. Atlanta is a huge and exciting city, but it is nice to go home to Memphis and see my family and get a rest from Atlanta traffic. I'm so happy I attended my 25th reunion in 2000. What a wonderful weekend !! Luckily, we were able to walk the halls of East High again, prior to the recent renovations. Who knew that we were exposed to Asbestos.
It looks like East High has really had some major ups and downs. We were fortunate to experience the good times.
Anyone who would like, please e-mail me and let's play catch-up.

Lisa Kenny [last updated March, 2015]
In anticipation of our upcoming 40th reunion, I am updating my profile. I moved to Nashville almost 3 years ago when my husband took a job here. I have never lived anywhere besides Memphis and still bemoan the fact I cannot find my way around here! Three of our four kids were living here. My daughter, Lucy, her husband, BJ, and my grandson, Parker as well as my son, Parker and his wife, Carrie are here. Sadly, we lost Tim's son, David who died unexpectedly at 39 last February. I am so glad we had that time with him, living in the same city and will always be grateful. I teach part time in Spring Hill, still in the area of gifted. We live in a community that backs up to trust land and it is fun to see deer and turkey running around. Never had that growing up on Poplar!

Pam May [last updated November, 2008]
Hello class of '75! I just moved home a couple months ago. I had been living in Phoenix, AZ for 16 years before the and Oklahoma City for 7 years before that. I got married after I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University and moved to Oklahoma City right away. My daughter was born in 1988 and then we all moved to Phoenix in 1991 where she grew up and graduated high school. She is now 20 and also living in Memphis.
I have been working in the legal field for 22 years and obtained my paralegal certificate from the University of Oklahoma. I am now living with my family trying to find a job so that I can get my own place again. Anybody out there know any attorneys? I have been looking all over the state and would love to relocate anywhere in Tennessee - I have missed it so, am very glad to be back home, and would like to hook up with any "old" friends from high school.
I would love to hear from you!

Tock McRae [last update March, 2006]
I live in San Antonio, Texas with my wife, Ann (who is from San Antonio); we've been married since 1980. We have two wonderful daughters, Lindy (b. 1985) and Kathleen (b. 1986)--now both students at Vanderbilt. After leaving East, I went to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt, where I obtained a degree in History and a law degree. Ann (who is also a law school graduate but happily retired from practice) and I moved to Dallas in 1982 and then to San Antonio in 1988. San Antonio is a wonderful city -- we have really enjoyed living here and raising our daughters here. I attended the reunion of the Class of '75 held in the summer of 2000 and enjoyed seeing everyone who was there (except for a couple of people who don't like lawyers). After many years practicing real estate and banking law in law firms here in San Antonio, I went to work in 2003 as lawyer for a food company. I don't get back to Memphis alot, but some-- one brother still lives there (Duncan, Class of '73 moved to Florida in 2005). I still keep in touch with a few folks from the class, Lisa Kenny - Cindy Godfrey and Roy West (who graduated from Briarcrest) but would love to get an email from anyone from high school days--there are so many people I wonder about. Best Wishes to all Mustangs!

Beverly Mullinax [last updated July, 2015]
How can it be 40 years since we graduated???
I am updating since there have been a few changes since I last posted. In 2010 I married a wonderful man, Art Costello. He is a widower and the father of 3 grown, married children, with 5 grandchildren. We are in Austin where I still work as a CRNA and he has recently had a book published.
I ran across this web site when "googled" the address of East High School for a credentially application. I have nursing degrees from Memphis State (cannot get used to the Univesity of Memphis yet), ADN, Union University, BSN, and Xavier University of Louisiana, MSNA, which is a Masters of Science in Nurse Anesthesiology. I was a RN for 15 years before going back to become an anesthetist. I lived in Memphis until I moved to New Orleans for graduate school in 1995. Kind of shocking to think I have a graduate degree when I missed at least one day a week of school our senior year! I now work as a Certified Nurse Anesthetist in Austin, Texas and love both what I do and this city..

Susan Randall [last updated April, 2007]
It's long past time for an update, and not only mine I see as I read through some older postings. I've changed my job and my email but the place remains the same, Memphis, TN. Seems like a good place to come back to for lots of folks. I am in my 25th year of marriage, have a fourth grandchild and lots of fabulous contacts with EHS alumni, many of those who didn't graduate from East but have survived to tell tales of those wild 70's. Living here gives me joyous surprise encounters, and I'm looking forward to more in our future...see ya'around!.

People who attended East with the class of 1975 but were not graduated from East.

Susanne Bailey [last updated February, 2011]
I went on to Immaculate Conception for my last two years of High School... but I still miss lots of you. I then went to the University of Georgia, where I majored in Graphic Design. After college, I moved to Boston for an adventure, and figured it would be a good place to break into my field. I have enjoyed it, but didn't plan on staying... but I met this handsome Chemist... and now, 2 children later (Ben - 22, Emily -21), I'm still here! I am a graphic designer and also got a really fun gig as a decorative painter for Cheesecake Factory Restaurants from 2005-2008! I helped paint about 6 of them. See - you never know what might happen if you try :). I enjoy hiking, biking and most adventures that good friends invent.

Mark Burns [last updated April, 2001]
I attended East from the 1st grade thru the 8th grade. I would have been part of the class of 1975 if we had not moved.

Peter Davis [last updated June, 2012]
I stumbled across this website by accident, and had a great time reading profiles. I finished high school in Whitehaven (Hillcrest) and graduated from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa (Business Administration). Grace Youmans and I have been married 30 years this Christmas night (2012)and have two sons. Josh is a captain in the Marines Special Forces, and Jonathan is still in college. I switched careers from Business to teaching about the time my 50 year mid-life crisis hit and love it! Sixth grade - Language Arts and Social Studies. Those kids keep me energized and challenged. Isn't it amazing how time passes - it certainly encourages you to evaluate your priorities and values. I am blessed to have God first, family second, and work third. Thanks for all of you who shared - was fun to hear what is and/or has happened in your lives!

Sorry I did not come to any of the reunions(low on dough). Hope Frank Udelson, my locker mate for several home rooms, and all of you are doing well.
Best Wishes and Good Luck
