The past ten years have flown by. After high school I spent 2 years in Fortaleza Brazil on a mission for our church. I got the opportunity 6 months after my mission to return and spend a few weeks playing on the beaches of Rio and spending time as a tourist in Fortaleza. I am hoping to make it back in two years when I finish my Masters Degree. After returning home I spent some years in banking, real estate, and then summer sales. After a summer of knocking doors I decided it was time to return to school. The years of 2007-2008 were very busy, I started school at SLCC, found, dated, and married my wife, and we bought our dog Cooper. In late 2010 I started working at Overstock.com and since then I’ve enjoyed working my way around different departments. This month I finished my Bachelor’s Degree in accounting, and next month I will be starting the MACC program at the University of Phoenix. We do not have any kids but hope to have some in the future.
Well, in ten years a lot has changed and a lot has stayed the same. I graduated from the Y in Construction Management and have been working for Big-D construction as a Project Engineer for the last 5 years.
I haven’t gotten married yet but I have my own place in Sandy where some lucky lady will end up some day. This is a real brief rundown of my last ten years but I figure anyone reading this will probably be at the reunion and I can elaborate then.
Until then…..can I get a C-WOOD!!!!!
After high school I went up to Utah State on a Cheerleading scholarship and graduated in Business Marketing. I married my husband Tyler and we moved to Spokane while he attended Gonzaga University. My dad passed away shortly after we moved up there so we returned back to Utah pretty soon after. My husband now works as an insurance agent and just opened his own office. We have a three year old girl named Adele and a one year old boy named Hugh. I spend most of my days chasing them around and I love every minute!
Thanks! See you guys Saturday.
10 years ago I was in school, living in Utah, and driving a Toyota station wagon. Now, I am in school, living in Utah, and driving a Toyota station wagon. Granted the school, the home, and the wagon are all different ones, but I guess things haven’t changed much for me. The sad thing is I don’t like going to school that much, and yet here I am.
Here are a few things that have happened along the way:
I b.s.-ed my way to a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from BYU. I did an LDS mission in Canada. I somehow got married to a great girl. I had a few random engineering jobs that had me working from Salt Lake to Shanghai. And now, I’m at the U of U working on a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering.
Life’s been good, and that hasn’t changed much in the past 10 years either.
Stumbled across this and saw a bunch of my buddies bios and figured I’d join in too! After C Wood I went to USU with Goat and Ry Guy. Had a blast, met cool people and enjoyed my time up there. After serving in Chihuahua Mexico I came back and played Lacrosse and Rugby for them. After breaking my leg and being on crutches I convinced a cute girl named Tawni to marry me. We are coming up on 5 years and have a cute daughter named Isla. I work for Platt Insurance and run into colts all over the valley. We try to get together with the old crew as often as possible, but we are slowly scattering around the country. Hopefully the next ten years brings us all tons of success and we can become one of the famous former colts!
ME HEARTY! Tis 10 year gone and the tale must be told of the travails of the one Hibby of the Colt! ‘Twas the year 2002 when she sailed to USU and dug for the treasure of history! But more adventure to be had- she set anchor in San Francisco for 18 months on a mission of souls. (Where I met a Muslim man who married a Catholic woman and they named their son Elvis!) She returned to the land of Logan and won her bachelors. Many claimed nothing could be done with the rusted treasure of history. She began to believe and sailed for UVU in search for the treasure of Sign Language. The Deaf people welcomed her home supposing her hearing impaired soul should have been with them all along. But alas the Archives of the land of Utah took her aboard where she works in the dust of time! (Actually it was 18 months straight of microfiche. You’ll never find a bigger fan of the archaic format.) What ho! Twas not the end! For we know Hibby loves games. At a night of games with old friends she met a man who may look frightening at first glance, but he was the man who snatched the treasure of her heart at first sight. She knew that night they met that they would wed, and that they did at the prime time of 5/7/11! A reunion was set to meet the old crew, will they go? We know not where the tide goes! (Oh, and on the side I paint figurines for warhammer players! We play games every chance we can get and watch Doctor Who!)
10 years in 30 seconds and a lot of horrible grammar…
I met my wife Jocelyn during school at the U. Graduated with a degree in Physics and a commission as an Officer in the United States Air Force. In 2007 we packed up the house and moved to Edwards Air Force Base in California where I was assigned as a rocket propulsion physicist and worked on developing future rocket fuels. In 2009 I volunteered to fight the ground war in Afghanistan with the US ARMY where I embedded with and trained the Afghanistan National Army and the Afghanistan Border Police. It was truly a humbling experience to say the least. After returning we packed up again and moved to Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas where I trained in the T-38C Talon and earned my pilot wings as a military aviator. We were happy to finish up there and move on to our current home at Hurlburt Air Force Base in Florida. We call this one a hardship tour because its so hard to stay away from the beach. I’m currently assigned to the U-28A and do ? all over the world in places like ? and ?. It’s been a wild ride so far and I know I couldn’t have done it without the support of my best friend J and my family back home in SLC. Unfortunately we will not be able to make it back to celebrate the last ten with all the great peops from CHS…duty calls.
