What's up Mustangs,
It has been a long time since I have heard from many of you guys. I am finally graduating Morehouse in December of 2002. My degree will be in Theater Management. This summer I will remain in Atlanta to work for a local Casting Director at the Alliance Theater. Life is going very well for me and I hope for all of you as well. I am still, "off the chain," but in a good way these days. All things will come to you with prayer and hard work. I forgot to mention I am single, and any of you lovely Lady Mustangs making over 50,000 a year give me a holla.
          Peace out,           NeilDog

Hello everyone! It's great to hear the good news that you all have to share. I'm currently an IT Manager with a company in Memphis. I went to school, got bored and didn't finish. I guess if you miss 100 days in high school you are bound to miss some days in college. God is good and you can never predict His plans for your life. No kids and not married, so I am enjoying my free time until that happens. Feel free to email me and keep in touch. Until then, remember that God's grace is sufficient.

I had some great years at Eash High. I have 1 son he is 13 years old. He attends a private school and this is last year. I would like for him to attend East next year, but the school it's not like it was when we were going. I'm really scared to send him there but i will give it some thought. They say the kids are ridiculous up there and the teachers don't have a chance!

Evette Edwards [last updated May, 2004]
Hello East High Classmates it is I, "The CRAZY ONE." I am really impressed at how well our class has done. It is actually not the class but the person who accomplished so many wonderful things over the years, and for that I take my hat off to each of you.
I graduated from Austin Peay State University with a BS in Communications specializing in Speech and Education and a minor in Psychology.
I am currently in the military. Yes, I am a Navy Girl. I am currently in Guam, one of the Marianas Islands in the Pacific. I joined the military just three years ago and I am about to travel to Bahrain in a few days. I will be stationed there for one year and then I will return to the states. I am currently submitting a package to become a Naval Officer, so pray for me that I get picked up.
I am married and I do not have any children yet. Maybe in a few years I will have a child or two if it is God's will. My husband is also in the military (Navy). He is from St. Vincient so his little accent breaks me down from time to time!!!
I am really impressed with all of you and I hope to see e-mails from all of you very soon. Please keep my family in your prayers, because Bahrain is in the Middle East.

Tori Eldridge [last updated August, 2009]

Hello class of '94. I am ecstatic to hear that we have plans for a reunion. It's a long time coming. Nothing has really changed since my last update. I graduated from the University of Memphis with a BA in Sociology. I am currently attending the University of Memphis pursuing a Master's in School Counseling. It is a rigorous program, but by the grace of God I am making it through. I will graduate May 1, 2004, PRAISE GOD. Afterwards, I plan to pursue a Doctorate in education or counseling. I am still in contact with my very best friends: Denise Fleming Woods, Lakesha Tables, and Karen Turnage. I am so very proud of the class of '94 and their accomplishments. Remember to put God first in all that you do. I am not currently married nor do I have any children. I am totally content and happy with my life and my 4 god-children (Chrnisse-9, Christopher-6, Christen-3, and Morgan-2) keep me on my toes. I hope to see you all soon at the reunion. Stay strong, put all your trust in God, and be at peace with who you are and what God has for you. God Bless.

Wande Okunoren [last updated October, 2006]
Greetings Friends,
Glad to know we are moving on in our lives and careers. As for me, i'm still a stay at home mom of the most precious gift in the world, England. She is nearly 2 and vibrant. Although a fortune was spent on my education at Emory university, nothing gives me nearly as much satisfaction that I have being home with my daughter. So far my husband hasn't said anything, but if I keep racking up the AMEX cards, I might have to learn to fill ou an application! LOL. I do however have a work at home business, which has been PHENOMENAL. The rewards are amazing and I can see it taking us on a lifestyle change. We live good now, but we can REALLY live in a bit. Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) always talks about how we should have 10 streams of income and Robert Allen says all millionaires have real estate, investments and network marketing. You want to get to the point where you can stop trading time for money. That's financial freedom when you don't work for money, money works for you. That's where I want to be in the next few years. Not for me, but for England and her unborn siblings. I want to leave a legacy for her- not bills and debt, ya know?
I'm rambling. Didn't make it to the 10 year, though it was great seeing some of you. Even though we have moved on in life and taken different paths, it's still nice to know we can cross one another every now and then.

for the hottest events in ATLANTA, visit my hubbies site at www.metroboyz.com or www.myspace.com/bigdinoafterdark.
May God keep all in perfect peace and visulize your victory and realize that sooner or later you will be staning in the doorway to destiny. It take time, but it does happen. Love you all!!!!

I am currently living in Chattanooga. A big shout out to all who attended UTC. Marcus, Muriel, Marlon and Venus good to know you guys are doing well. I am currently married with a 5 year old daughter and a 7 month old son. I work as minister of music at New United Church and run a studio and production company in Chattanooga and in Atlanta. I also give private piano lessons to local aspiring church musicians. God has been a blessing. I will be going back to finish my bachelors in Chemistry in the Spring of 2007. However, I doubt if I work in that field. Music is my passion and I love doing ministry in church. Sorry I missed the reunion. I will definitely be at the next one. Man we'll be close to forty then (smile)!!! It's good to hear everyone with the good jobs and families and careers. See you guys in about ten years (LOL)!!
