Zach (1980), Nate (1982), Andrew (1984), Amy (1996)


School District 51


After graduation, I worked at the 1st National Bank in Holdrege for 4 years. In 1976, I married David Sullivan, and in 1980, we started having babies, 3 sons over the next 4 years. In 1986, we moved to Colorado and have lived there since. Then in 1996, we had the privilege of adopting a daughter from China. I have home schooled all 4 of my children, and during those 24 years until last year I was not employeed outside of the home. Last year, I started working part-time for the local school district, working with a program called Vision, where home school families are enrolled in the public school, and choose to have more accountability, but also get some financial reimbursement. I am still home schooling my daughter, Amy, but the boys are grown and have left home. Our oldest son, Zach, was in the Air Force, and this year he is graduating as a radiologist technologist. He lives close to us, and has been married about 2 years. Our middle son, Nate, was also in the Air Force, and now he works for the government in the Washington, D.C. area. He is married and has our three grandchildren, far away from Colorado. Our youngest son, Andrew, is in L.A., California, working as a manager in an apartment complex. My husband has been practicing Physical Therapy for most of our married life. We have had the opportunity to do a lot of traveling, and besides seeing our great country, I have been in at least 19 other countries. I am looking forward to seeing my classmates at the reunion!
