Comments:

After marriage to Philip Winter (GHS '69) and graduation from American University, I worked as a graphic designer and art director for thirteen years at local DC and Bethesda ad agencies.

After our second child was born, I stopped working full time and concentrated on raising children and doing volunteer work with school and community organizations. Later, I worked in the school system part-time and took computer graphics courses. I then returned to my original field and worked as a marketing coordinator and graphic designer with a real estate company until my retirement in 2009. Afterward, I helped my husband with his commercial real estate tax consulting business for five years. He still does consulting work on a part-time basis and we both help babysit our three grandkids. Philip and I both enjoy doing local historical research, and I am a member of the Clarksburg Historical Society.

Despite all the changes and growth in Clarksburg, we still live on the remaining 10 acres of my parents' farm, not far from the town center.

School Story:

It wasn't very funny at the time, but my kids thought it was absolutely hysterical that I was told (not very nicely I might add) to leave a basketball game because I was dressed inappropriately. By inappropriate, I mean I was wearing a demure white blouse with a Peter Pan collar, navy blue cardigan, and wool, navy blue, lined, dress slacks.

Somehow I missed the morning announcements that said girls wearing pants would be kicked out of the gym for any evening events.

I guess short skirts were considered the proper attire for climbing bleachers in those days.

How times have changed!!!
