Founder/Principal upwithAmerica.org Widowed 3 2016-08-26 10:44:19
I enjoyed my 3 years at WJ - but did not attend Junior High or Elementary School in Bethesda as we had moved from Severna Park, Maryland in 1964 to Walnut Woods along Montrose Road.  Formed our local rock band (first Karavans then The End) and played often at parties, dances and events from 1964 through graduation. We were honored to have been the first local band ever to perform live Kerby Scott's Wing Ding in the Spring of '66 - the DC version of American Bandstand!  I dated my sweetheart Linda Helmer (Class of 1967) throughout high school and only recently learned of her tragic passing in 2009.  After graduation, I attended Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA - to this day, an outstanding liberal arts college.  Became editor of The Bell (student newspaper) in the Spring of 1968 and president of the SGA in the Spring of 1969. I met and married Cynthia Day, a wonderful local girl and we had three daughters: Nicole ('69); Pamela ('70); and Courtney ('78).  All are now beautiful young women; all doing exceptionally well.  Nicole has a successful career in the Federal Government; Pamela is a sought-after Bikram Yoga instructor in Lower Manhattan; Courtney has been one of America’s top fashion models since 1997.

After a few years with a national trade association, I entered the advertising business in the DC area and ultimately launched my own Ad Agency in '79 with my father, Don P. Herron.  Met and married the love of my life, Jaci Pace Herron, in 1987 and continued operating the agency until '93, when we launched Gary Player Golf Vacations.  I relaunched my advertising and political consulting career until Jaci's early and tragic death November of 2009 of Systemic Lupus.    I am blessed with four grandchildren.   Jonathan is a junior at University of Tennessee; Joshua is a freshman also at UT (both the children of my oldest daughter Nicole); Samantha (7) lives with her brother Charley (4) in Sea Cliff, New York with her parents Courtney and Dan (a proud member of FDNY).

In 2007 I created an organization dedicated to returning America to her glory days. A non-partisan, non-profit called Up With America (www.upwithAmerica.org) – in memory of my late father and The Greatest Generation and in honor of my children and grandchildren.  After suffering a AAA in 2012 open heart surgery just 6 weeks after our fantastic 50th Reunion, I have recommitted my life to doing all in my power to preserve the Republic for generations to come.  Armed with a new "motor" stuck inside this 1948 body, I look forward to celebrating our 250th Birthday in July of 2026 - just after seeing all of you at our 60th Reunion.  It was an honor and privilege to serve on the 50th Reunion steering committee and to see so many old friends in May!

From the 40th reunion:
 
After graduating from Walter Johnson High School, I attended Montgomery Junior College and graduated with an Associate of Arts in Business.  I married Robert E. Priest, Jr. in October 1969 and my beautiful daughter, Kimberly, was born the following September.  After eight very difficult years of marriage, I decided that I would be better off on my own.
 
I went to work at the National Institutes of Health where I worked as a secretary in research and grants, several laboratories, a clinical branch where we took care of children with cancer or AIDS and a division director's office. Besides the usual clerical/administrative work, I have setup a laboratory, moved a laboratory to the Veteran's Administration in Cincinnati, OH, dealt with the press and have been part of a team dealing with the Secret Service for two George H.W. Bush visits, a Bill Clinton visit and a Hillary Clinton visit. I also escorted the Blue Angels, several Baltimore  Orioles players, several Senators and Congressmen and Marlo Thomas through the Pediatric Oncology and AIDS Branch. I also have met Barbara Bush, Alan Alda, Elizabeth Glaser and Elizabeth Taylor while working in this Branch.
 
Currently, I am a Technology Development Administrative Specialist for the Technology Transfer Branch, National Cancer Institute.  I have been in this position since January, 1999.  I do paralegal work for a Unit and do independent work for two lawyers in the Branch.  I negotiate legal agreements such as Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs) and Confidential Disclosure Agreements.  I also prepare docket reports and the monthly patent cases for my Unit for review by the NCI Technical Review Group.  By preparing the patent cases, I have gained extensive knowledge of the patenting process.  I also negotiate and process all of the MTAs for the Mouse Models of Human Cancer Consortium (MMHCC).  This is an NCI initiative and the MMHCC has a committee which accepts mouse strains from all over the world that are distributed at no charge to the research community.  Since the project began in 2002, I have negotiated more than 120 MTAs for incoming mice and approximately 550 MTAs per year for outgoing mice.  During my tenure, I have received a Public Health Service Award for my volunteer work, several cash awards, quality increases and customer service awards.  I have been at NIH for 28 years and I plan to retire when I have 30 years.  
 
My daughter, Kimberly, recently turned 36-years-old.  She graduated from Montgomery College with an Associate of Arts in Secondary Education, went on to attend the Baltimore International Culinary College (BICC) earning an Associate of Arts in Professional Cooking and continued on to receive a Bachelors in Science in Behavioral and Social Sciences from University of Maryland University College. While attending BICC, Kimberly met her husband, Patrick Gary, who was pursuing a second career after retiring from the Navy.  She went to work at the Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health and was eventually promoted to supervise the Patient Travel Voucher Office.  Four years ago, Kimberly changed careers and became a substitute teacher in Montgomery County Public Schools and has been pursuing her Master's Degree in teaching from Mount St. Mary's.  Kimberly and her family loved vacationing in Deep Creek Lake and in August 2004, she and her family moved to Swanton, MD which is outside Deep Creek Lake.  She and her husband teach in the school system in that area. 
One of the highlights of my life was watching the birth of my adorable granddaughter, Sheena Marie.  Sheena is a beautiful, delightful, inquisitive eight-year-old who loves school, reading, music, swimming and dancing.  Sheena calls me "G" and I love being a grandmother.  Still a kid at heart, I spent my 54th birthday with my  
 Sheena attending a play at Glen Echo and riding on one of the carousel ponies. 
When Kimberly started college, I began experiencing the empty nest syndrome.  At the time, I was working in the Pediatric Oncology and AIDS Branch at the National Cancer Institute and I became interested in children's issues and the fact that they needed representation.  I taught religion to special needs children and I began doing volunteer work at The Children's Inn at NIH and Camp Fantastic (a camp for children with cancer).  In 1988, I was appointed by County Executive Neal Potter to serve on the HIV/AIDS Task Force in Montgomery County.  I also sat on the Child and Adolescent Subcommittee of the Mental Health Advisory Committee and served as a surrogate parent for educational purposes for Montgomery County Public Schools to a six-year-old boy living at Redl House, a group home.  Currently, I am on my fourth appointment as a Citizen Volunteer appointed by the Governor of Maryland to the Montgomery County Citizens Review Board for Children where I review cases of children in foster care once a month.  This is an oversight committee reviewing whether the placement of the child by the Montgomery County Department of Social Services is appropriate. 
 
Since I am planning on retiring in two years, I am exploring other volunteer options for the future.  Last spring, I took a 15-week course called Citizen Academy through the Montgomery County Police Department.  Some of the things I learned about included traffic and criminal law, cold cases, forensics and firearm safety -- I even shot 15 rounds using a Glock.  I visited the new jail in Clarksburg, rode with a police officer and worked with a call-taker and dispatcher at the Emergency Communications Center.  Since July, I have been volunteering two evenings a week at the Wheaton-Glenmont Station.  Currently, I am attending training sessions for the Emergency Action Team in Montgomery County.  This Team will be called to staff the Volunteer Mobilization Center in emergency situations.  Having been frustrated with the recent primary election, I will be the Assistant Chief Election Judge at my polling place.  
 
My spare time is occupied with my family and friends, and I enjoy theater, reading, music and swimming.

Graduated Tarkio College in Missouri 1970 with a major in Political Science. Moved to California that year to work in the hotel/restaurant business with my Aunt & Uncle.  Eventually became a Deputy Sheriff in 1974 with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. I worked uniform patrol, personnel investigations, administrative support, jail supervision and recruit training.  Retired in 1996, then spent one year in Bosnia & Herzegovina working for U.N. as part of their International Police Task Force.  Spent next 7 years managing a non-profit agency in Upland, CA providing services to schools and the community to help kids avoid substance abuse, teen pregnancy and smoking.  Went to Guatemala in 2005 for an archeological exploration.  As a result, I incorporated a 501(c)3 organization to address many needs (especially education) in a rural village in western Guatemala called “Chocola.”  I continue to operate Amigos de Chocola today. I have lived in Claremont, CA most of past 40 years--35 of those with my wife Brenda.  We spent one year living in Arlington, VA (‘14/’15) and reconnected with some classmates.  What a blast that was!  We are back in So. California where our two daughters live.  The Spartans 50th reunion was fantastic.  Really looking forward to the next reunion, and hope to join some local reunions in California.

From the 40th reunion:
 

After Walter Johnson, I went to school at West Virginia Wesleyan. Majored in political science. The main memory I have from there was the dreaded blue books they used for the tests. What i learned was how

many ways to rephrase a question when I had no idea what i was talking about in order to

fill up pages.

Back then, there was this unpopular war going on; some of you may be old enough to remember or is that now? deja vu again I guess.

I took awhile to get through school; but finally made it. I put in just a few months with the post office in Rockville. Then I got hired by the savings bond office in Chicago. The mission is to finance the public debt; basically to borrow money to pay for worthy government

projects like developing space ships to deport illegal space aliens. Just kidding. I spent about a year there; then the office was moved to Parkersburg WV in 1974, I've been here since then. Basically, I'm in customer service (whatever that means anymore, can't drive the big bulldozers, I guess.) The comic strip "Dilbert" reminds me of our office.

oh,yeah...I got married in 1985 (Kathy); we've got 2 kids. Joshua-18, and Cody-12. I was doing prettygood for awhile. i kept my hair, mostly, and even got carded for beer once when I was thirty-five. now i get the senior discounts without asking...rats..
