I had an exciting day today. After four years, the Billings Class of 2000 finally meet up again. Turn out was pretty good, all things considered; we had 8 of 12 people show up. Everyone who was there had a great time. We took a tour of the new school and accompanying satellites and then headed down to the Greenlake Bar and Grill for some entres.
I though it was really exciting to see how much everyone had (or hadn’t) changed in the last five years. As a quick note, these shouldn’t not come off as mean or cruel. If they do, I apologize in advance. Starting from the top: Tyler Anderson wins the least likely to change, but changed radically award. It really wasn’t that radical, he just grew his hair out. However, I never would have though Tyler would have done that. Next up is David Barker. David wins the found his inner self award. His change from “food friend” to what I will generalize as Gothic defiantly seems to suit him well. It really seems as if he’s found his place…at least for now. Katherine Latimer wins the most unchanged award. As Hershey’s says, “Change is bad.” So neither is Katherine for that matter: still showing up fashionable late, but always looking her best. It’s really hard to comment on Maya Stessin because I went to high school with her. However, I will give her the steadfast award for all the hardships she has gone through in life. Stephanie Runo wins the shoe size as age award. Stephanie is still up to her crazy antics as usual. Mesa Schumacher receives the hippie award. Granted, she’s not even close to full blown hippiness, but I surmise that it’s just a matter of time ;-). And finally, Adrienne Wilson-Muenchow wins the least unchanged award similar to the above mentioned “most unchanged award,” but different.
I was also named President of Billings Alumni Association. More pictures of the Billings Class of 2000.0
