Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In: Norton Shores, MI USA
Spouse/Partner: Bruce McClain (49years)
Occupation: retired elementary teacher
Children: 3 daughters, born in 1972,1981,1983
4 grandchildren one born in 2001, two born in 2004 (28 hours More…apart) and one born in 2008

I worked for the US Post Office, 2 banks, a real estate office and then decided to stay home and raise my last two kids. When they were through with grade school, I went to Western Michigan University and became an elementary teacher. I loved it. In 2010, I retired after teaching 18 years at Churchill Elementary in the Mona Shores System. Now I'm having fun doing what ever I want.

Since retiring, my husband and I have hosted marriage seminars and taught Dave Ramsey Financial Peace classes.

School Story:

I remember having the winning float for the Homecoming parade one year. We were playing the Tigers. I loved going to the football games and still believe there is nothing close to Big Red football.

Mr. Frank Potter, drama coach, was an inspiration along with Mrs. Marjorie Rice, speech. Mrs. Phyllis Hallgren, library assistant, was my favorite person in the library. Mr. Pool, chemistry, "Systematize! Systematize!" taught me wonderful life skills. Mr. Harris made history come alive and I ended up a history major in college.

I was part of Project X, also known as Team Teaching, and I believe it made me a better student and better person. Too bad the project lost its funding and was discontinued. Team teaching limited my chance to meet many of the Class of 1967. But it provided a lifelong love of learning and many memories.

My husband, Bruce, joined the staff at Muskegon Public and taught for the high school until he retired. So, although I didn't marry a Big Red, I converted one over.

Jackie Fox McClain has left an In Memory comment for Terry A Potts.

My husband met Terry at work one day and brought him home.  I began a journey of remembering old times from highschool and of lots of laughter.  He lived with us for a year and became a big brother to our three daughters. They still laugh at the notes he would leave on the toilet seat cover.  He met his wife-to-be, Debby, at our house and they married the following summer.  A year later Joshua Potts, Terry's only child, was born.  Terry was an excellent draftsman and designer.  He started on the old wooden board and ended an expert on many CAD programs.  In his spare time, he created spaceships and views of other worlds that he knew were "out there."  He had a dry sense of humor that left people puzzled or hysterical, depending on whether or not you got it.  He loved music and played the guitar, beginning with a group back in the 1960s. Someone out there might remember the name?  He wrote songs; my favorite was "Testify."   Terry was confident and proud of his relationship with his Lord Jesua Christ.

It will be in the high 80s here today. Near the airport in Muskegon. Too hot to trim the shrubs.

Jackie - she has not registered on our site, that is why you cannot contact her through the site. However, we have verified her address/phone for our records but we feel we cannot give out personal info. So, I left her a voicemail message & will also email her for you and she can contact you if you wish. Is it okay to give her your contact info?

Anybody know how to get in touch with Becky Noor Halgren?

I was thinking of you and thought I'd drop a line. We had fun in high school. I always enjoyed your sense of humor. Maybe my husband and I could get together with you some day.

Can't believe I used to look like this. But maybe all of you remember this look.
