             Carri began teaching Elementary Algebra and Intermediate Algebra at Oklahoma City Community College this fall.  She’s pictured here with one of her students in her classroom.

              image002      Here’s Carri’s first school picture as a full-time pre-K teacher.


                  image016      The kids have graduated.  Here’s the scene at the OU stadium, and the BSME grad himself with his parents.  Also, here’s the scene at the OCU gym and the M. Ed. grad with her family and friends-and-family.

                  image017    Mom and Dad, who are OKCCC adjunct faculty, participated in OCCC’s graduation, too.

                  AKZOMAN_Salute   After 25 years in Oklahoma City, the medical laboratory instrument factory now owned by bioMeriéux, Inc. (formerly, Akzo Nobel’s Organon Teknika) was closed and combined with the bMx manufacturing facility in St. Louis.  On the Very Last Day, 30-Dec-2003, the Engineering/QA/ IT skeleton crew, shown here in a final Akzo-man salute, said their goodbyes and padlocked the doors.  Thanks go to LVGrade for the pics.
