                      torture myself by running long distances and Tony plays a lot of golf so most
                      vacations are spent going to races or to play golf. I ran a slow marathon in
                      France in 2007 (in a turtle costume with 30-some wine stops) and will run the
                      New York marathon in November. I cannot believe it has been 20 years since

                      spare time, and I am also an Assistant Cub Master in my son‟s pack.

                      For me, high school, with all of its memories, was just a springboard for things to
                      come, and the older I get, the less significant it becomes. However, I am looking
                      forward to seeing some old friends and catching up.

                       I almost attended law school, but decided I‟d become a paralegal first; then go

                       and now Indianapolis as a paralegal and as it turns out, love being a paralegal
                       and would never want to be an attorney! While at I.U. I met my husband, Greg.

                       since high school and where they are now!

Angela (Warner)
Allen             Graduated from Purdue in 1992 with a BS in Retail Management. After
                  graduating she moved to Indianapolis and worked in a management position for
                  Lazarus and Parisian. Angela met her husband Brad Allen (a MET grad) their
                  freshman year at Purdue and just celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary.
                  They have three wonderful kids - Alexis 13, Bradan 10 and Olivia 5. Alexis was
                  born with a surprising birth defect, spina bifida, that changed the direction of life
                  for us. Together, Angela and her daughter speak at fundraisers for Riley
                  Children Hospital sharing their story and encouraging others that life isn't always
                  fair, but how to live life to the fullest and enjoy the journey. Angela is blessed to
                  be a stay home mom - which includes the roles of taxi driver, maid, chef, tutor,
                  therapist, coach and personal shopper. In her spare time she enjoys landscape
                  and interior design, volunteering at church/school and learning to play the wii.
                  Angela and her family spend many weekends traveling to Bradan's soccer (our
                  next David Beckham) and Alexis' wheelchair basketball tournaments where
                  Olivia practices her talent of cheering on the clan with her energy and zeal.

John Yestrebsky   Graduated Purdue University with a degree in Anthropology/Archaeology. Police
                  Officer with the City of Lafayette for 14 years and currently a Sergeant in patrol.
                  Married Christina Erwin (HHS class of 1991) and we have one child (Andrik
                  Logan Yestrebsky) who is 21 months old. I am still best buds with HHS class of
                  1988-Mike Brown and Jason Huber (also police officers). I play the bagpipes.
                  My favorite memory is how our class had "fun" and "spirit" compared to what I
                  observe in schools today.
