As I have been watching and listening to the hearings, interviews and constant discussions surrounding Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, my mind has wandered back to the early 1970s and my own high school experiences.
I remember football games under the lights, winning the Rock from Skyline, basketball games in a crowded and hot gym, going to Gepetto's for pizza after the wrestling matches, dances in the cafeteria and pep club winning state!
I remember the year when we got our driver's licenses and drove by each other's houses all summer. I was in the blue 1964 blue Chevrolet Impala. It was quite a ride.
I realize that this is not everyone's high school experience, but it is mine.
The boys I knew and dated and hung out with were always so much fun. I never found myself in a situation where I did not feel safe and respected and appreciated. I do remember that time at the drive-in when we were crunching on Wint-O-Green lifesavers to see if they would spark in the dark. I can't remember, did they?
To the boys of Olympus High School, class of ’73, I want to thank you for the young men you were then. I appreciate your behavior, your character. I have thought about you over the years, occasionally heard about your lives and always hoped the very best for you.
From the bottom of my heart, thanks for the GOOD memories.
Kellie Morgan Davis, Sandy
