Married to wife Mita, class of 1972 for 35 years. Living and working in Ardmore for First National Bank as a loan officer.

School Story:

Graduated from OU in 1975 with a degree in business. Graduated Colorado Graduate School of Banking in 1994.

Do you still talk to other people from our class? Who?

From time-to-time. Pat Cowan, Mike Shelby, John Parrish. Not nearly enough.

If you not longer live there, do you get back to Chickasha very often?

Yes. My dad and in-laws all still live in Chickasha. We are probably home at least once a month to check on them. Also, both my brothers still live in Chickasha.

How old do you feel?

I have been an avid runner since college. Although my times are way off of what they used to be, I think this has helped me stay younger. I still like to run and play golf when possible.

What are your memories of school? (secret crush, funny thing you or someone else did, favorite hangout, favorite teacher, etc.???)

Eating at Maxes Drive-in.

Happy birthday Jim. My son Matt says he met you today while on a business trip and lunch with my dad. We both are now sharing the same hair style....bald! Hope you have a great birthday.
