Comments:

After graduation I attended Rochester Vocational Technical College and graduated in May of 1976 as a Certified Registered Dental Assistant.
Married my daughter's father in July 1976.
Worked as a dental assistant from 1974-1978 when we moved to Illinois for my then husband's job. My daughter Darcie was born in September of 1979. I divorced in April of 1982 and returned to Rochester and dental assisting. Began working at the Federal Medical Center in October of 1985.
Joined the Rochester Jaycees in the spring of 1989, which is where I met my future husband. Purchased a home and married my husband Don in May of 1992. Transferred to North Carolina as a Environmental Health and Occupational Safety Trainee with the Bureau of Prisons in April of 1998. We built our home in Creedmoor, NC in March of 1999. After two years of classes and on the job training, I applied for and accepted a Safety Specialist position at the Federal Correctional Complex at Butner, North Carolina. We remained in North Carolina and I retired in December of 2006. In August of 2007, (just eight months after retirement) I accepted a part time safety consulting position with Creative Corrections out of Beaumont, Texas. I conduct annual jail inspections for Homeland Security, specifically Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. In May of 2009, I began working with MGT of America, Inc. as they were awarded the ICE contract. I'm able to travel all over the US and to US held territories. The expertise gained working with the Bureau of Prisons allows me the BEST job ever. What's better than part time work with travel.

School Story:

I came to John Marshall as a junior. I didn't grow up in Rochester and had no connections. One of the first warm days of school, I sat out on the grass reading my assigned English novel. I noticed another girl by herself with the same novel. We starting talking about our English class and a very dear friendship began that has lasted all these decades. Who could have known? I have experienced a terrific lifelong gift that sprang from a simple conversation. Pat (Bauer) McAlexander is my favorite high school memory.
