I am a proud graduate of Westland High School in Galloway, Ohio. I think about my high school days now and again, and keep up with several of my former classmates. Via Facebook and visits, weâ€™ve truly shared the best and worst times of our post high school lives. As I prepared to write this week's article, I reflected on the high school days of my own father. He was a graduate of South High School, located on the South side of Columbus, in the Thurman Square community. I live across the street from Dadâ€™s high school and have walked every inch of it, listening for his words of advice in my head and heart. He died when I was barely into my twenties and never knew that I achieved my dream of writing and accomplished another of illustrating. As I walked down our stairs this morning, I paused at the window to look across at his old high school. I felt him and at the moment knew that he indeed knows about my writing and so much more! Enjoy this weekâ€™s article about Homecoming.
Oh, and if you are an alumni and attend your school's Homecoming, don't be surprised if a current student approaches you to talk. I told them to do that!
