Marketing Single U2, Talking Heads, Simple Minds While playing football, intramurals, all the parties, boring classes and overall good times within the walls of DGN were memorable, by far the best time for me was the entire prom weekend. Those that were in our group know what I'm talking about... Getting the full collegiate experience at Bradley University.
It's hard to believe it's been 20 years already!  Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the reunion but hope everyone has a great time catching up with one another--enjoy! Send Doug a MessageSend Doug a Message

Former teacher turned MOM! Married 2 "Crazy For You" by Madonna...any Madonna, Whitesnake, Duran Duran & Phil Collins "Sussudio"......didn't say I loved it, just reminds me of high school Simple stuff........sneaking out of the Operetta to attend Kelly Allard's St. Patty's party during the intermission (and then sneaking back into the Operetta), attending baseball games with Christine Devereaux at Doerhoffer Park, riding the cheerleading bus to games and singing songs (yes, we really did sing), having to serve an "in-school" suspension for going out to "Feebs" with Jimmy Timble for lunch one day, driving to parties on the weekend with Carolyn Vavrek and singing songs played via cassette tape on her boom box (she only had AM radio), loved English with Stanley Steed, and I actually thought SPIRIT week was fun. I loved our wedding. Being in a room surrounded by our family and favorite friends is really as good as it gets. Since then, raising my girls is fun and rewarding and definitely crazy at times.
Abridged version: Graduated from U of I in 1991 and moved to Chicago. Loved the city, got a teaching/masters degree from DePaul, met my husband at "Hi-Tops" (bar right outside of Wrigley Field), got married in 2000, had a little girl in 2002 and moved to Downers Grove in 2004. Had a second little girl 6 months ago. Having fun planning the reunion with old friends. Looking forward to seeing everyone in October! Send Leigh Ellen a MessageSend Leigh Ellen a Message

IT Manager Married 2 Blister in the Sun Being in John Beasley's car when he broke the corner off of the Downers Grove Public Library. My wedding and the birth of my two kids, of course.
Thanks to the committee for the great efforts in planning this event.  Seems like we are a lot more organized and full of spirit than when we were in high school!
Pretty soon after college, I married my college sweetheart and DGN alum Jennifer Ravetto, and we now have two great kids - Max (9) and Katie (7).  We've been up in Libertyville for the last 14 years and love it here - the downtown is a lot like downtown Downers.  I still play soccer, and coach my kids, too.
Looking forward to the big event - see you all soon.  By the way, don't be looking for the sweet '69 LeSabre in the parking lot- I had to get rid of it a few years ago.

I've been in Oregon most of the time since 1987. Glad to see so many people doing well. My busiest season is October so no plans to make the event.
This summer I've been teaching my son to drive. That sure brings back memories of High School.

Regional Sales Manager Married C** on Feel the Noize by Quiet Riot Taking Karen C's beautiful white convertible corvette for a spin after school while driving down Main Street in DG cruising for hotties! Gosh, we were so pathetic, but man was it fun at the time!! :)
After screwing around after graduating from U of I in 91, I finally got "serious"- moved out to Phoenix and got myself a real job. 14 yrs later, Im doing the sales gig and love it. Believe I have found my dream career working as a sales manager for a great sales team at Wells Fargo.

Married for the 2nd time (oops!) to an AWESOME AZ boy a couple years ago. Both of us dont want kids- instead electing for a fun active & lifestyle (FREE SPRIITS ARE WE!!!) and 2 furry guys (my beloved terriers).

I travel alot -both for work and adventure. My passion is still visiting other countries (& US) and learning about their cultures. Last year China, this year a hiking trip in Turkey and next year is Thailand. 

Probably wont make the reunion but its been great "seeing" you all again!!!

Consultant Married 2

Wow….time flies!  I can not believe it has been 20 years since I set foot in the halls of DGN.   Here is what I have been up to (short version):  I graduated from DePaul University.  On my way to becoming an attorney, I got side tracked and started working in Resource Development which is what I am doing today and I love it.  I met my husband Martin 18 years ago shortly after moving to Chicago to go to school which is where we still live today.  We got married in 1996, and we have two wonderful sons – Ben (3) and Ethan (11 months).   I am happy to see that my classmates are having such fulfilling lives. Take Care.
