Comments:

I'm back in B-CS after being gone for 20 years. I'd missed the old home town and old friends and love being back.
Now for the previous 55 years: For 26 years
I was married to Norman Godwin, SFA '58 and TAMU '62. We had 2 children, Piper and Norm III who make me very proud. In the 70's I went to Ultrasound School and became the first registered ultrasound tech in the Brazos Valley. Following mine and Norman's divorce
I took a job in ultrasound sales with a company in Copenhagen, Denmark but was based in Houston so I could travel, covering 28 states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. When that job ended after 7 years I moved to Waco for the next 12 years, retiring from Providence Hospital. Eight years ago I moved to College Station where I volunteered at the Bush Library for 3 years, spent 3 years as Secretary-Treasurer of my HOA, worked 5 years part time for USDA doing ag surveys. I have a somewhat profitable hobby of repairing and restoring antique lamps and chandeliers which keeps me quite busy.

I share my home with International graduate students at Texas A&M and find his to be a most enjoyable experience. I've had students from Germany, China, Belgium, Brazil, France, Colombia, Africa, Guam and Singapore. They're the best and the brightest and I learn a lot from them.

My two children, however are my greatest accomplishment. Norm III has a CPA firm in Austin which has made the Aggie 100 list for the last 2 years. Piper is a Vice-President of The Weather Channel in Atlanta. They love their Mama,
pay their own bills, vote Republican, remember my birthday and have given me precious grandchildren to love, enjoy and spoil!

School Story:

In the summer before my senior year at SFA, T.R.Jones, the ICT teacher called me to see if I might be interested in the work/training program offered by the Industrial Cooperative Training Program at school. Since I was having to work anyway this seemed like an ideal way for me to make money and learn too. I started out in the lab at Bryan Clinic and Hospital washing glassware and learning lab procedures. That progressed to working in the Xray darkroom and soon learning Xray. After two years I was able to get my certification and years later went to school and obtained my ultrasound registry I've had an enjoyable 50 year career in the medical field. I'll always be grateful to Mr. Jones and the door that he opened for me. About twenty years ago I wrote him a letter telling how appreciative I was of him and the positive effect he had on my life. I didn't hear back from him so I can't be sure he ever got the letter. I hope he did.
