Carol Fenelon (Weisenberger)
Permit Clerk Married 2
Married Glenn (HF '71) 2 years after graduating high school.  Waited 9 years before having 1st child.  2nd kid born 2 & 1/2 years later.  Both kids graduated from Illinois Wesleyan (expensive!) and are doing well.  Kate will be married in January and Gary maybe the next year.
I have mostly done administrative office work my whole career.  Since the kids were school age I have worked for (& lived in) 2 municipalities, Richton Park and Oak Forest.  Its interesting to work for the town you live in!
Hope to see you Friday at Aurelios
 
P.S. My best friend (then & now), Debbie Mikalauskas, is alive and well and living in Southern Illinois.  I noticed she was on the "Missing" page. She worked in the coal mines for many years.

Engineering Married 2
It is difficult to comprehend how 40 years has gone by since our graduation.  Doesn't seem possible.  Doesn't seem like it has been that many years, but we are pushing 60 now!  How did this happen?  HA!  We have witnessed so many things that have happened in the world, so many advances in technology, like cell phones, the internet, instant communication from the other side of the world, etc., just to name a few.  Also, so many changes in our society and our country, and in the world.  Growing up today appears to be so different and challenging than when we were going through our formative years.
Am married with two children, and it's sort of difficult, however really happy, to see them go off on their own.  Moved to NW Indiana, however still come thru Homewood frequently.  
Had some fun with the pictures of "THEN" and "NOW".  By chance, found my senior HF ID card, and scanned that the the "THEN" picture.  The "TODAY" picture was from a recent visit at the Homewood Historical Society Museum, and for fun, put on that "Homewood" straw hat from the Homewood Diamond Jubilee, and they took my picture!  HA!  Thought it would be fun to have that for the "TODAY" picture!
Have been working in industrial electronics, electrical engineering in the steel industry.  Have been working with most of the major steel manufatureres, such as ArcelorMittal, US Steel, Nucor Steel, AK Steel, etc., with most of the end product being flat carbon product rolled for automotive, appliances, line-pipe, shipbuilding plate, just about anything requiring steel.  Most of the electronic work has been in process automation, controls and power, large DC main drives, force measurement systems in the rolling processes, and industrial scales for weighing applications.  Quite a variety of activities.  But that's shop talk!  HA!
 
Reflecting back, HF really has had such a positive influence for me.  Never thought years ago (like 1973!) I would say that high school would or even could have the impact on me that it has had.  The variety of classes, those basketball games, school activities, teachers, so much inclusive.  And,  for me, was really into the Viking Choir, and Viking Ensemble, with Mr Rodby, such a dedicated, talented, and influential person for me.  Really an honor to have been a part of the Viking Choir.  We were (and will always be) such a strong team.
So many great memories, and taking innumerable positive influences from Homewood-Flossmoor High Schood, that have helped me, and provide me tools to move on to college, become the person (now what ever that might be!  HA!) that I am today.  Ultimately went to Univ. of Ill. Champaign-Urbana, Prairie State College, and Purdue Univ.  Had the opportunity to be instructor for a while in industrial electronics and electronics technology at Parairie State, then went into the steel industry.
At the time, never thought that those 4 (seemingly long years at that time!) years at HF could have such impact on my life!  Am so proud to be a HF Viking alumni, to be a part of our class team of 73.  We really have a great class, of '73, with so many great experiences at a pivotal, influential, and formative time in our lives for our endeavors.  Thank you, everyone!

ordained minister Married 3
Never been to a reunion. I opted for early graduation, so I'm really a 1972 H-F graduate, but the school never got it right. I am still waiting for my high school diploma. So, I answer to the class of 1972 or 1973. So far, I've only ever heard from 1973. Cyndie Carson was one of my best friends from sixth grade on; riding shotgun with her was an experience I'll never forget. Those were great years, with many brain cells used up partying. My favorite class was typing; John Baldovan and I managed to disassemble an entire typewriter one semester without getting caught. I regret never going to prom, even when invited, because my "boyfriend," who was probably one of the best guys around, was too short. I endured relentless teasing from Jay Pfeilsticker and Jay Ferris, who now is Rabbi Yehuda Ferris in Berkeley, California. (Check out his band, The Ferris Wheels!) I moved to Normal, Illinois, to attend ISU, married my best friend and greatest love, Wayne Sedgwick, in 1980, and together we had three children: Weston, Elliot and Sarah Sedgwick. In 1992 we were divorced. For a while I worked at The Pantagraph - a daily newspaper - where I met David Proeber, my husband of 19 years. I hope he's the last one. For a few years I worked in public relations at State Farm's Corporate Headquarters, then left to attend Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, where I received a Masters of Divinity in 2003, and was ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  I currently serve Church of Christ, Uniting, a small rural congregation in Lexington, Illinois. At the present time I have two goals (other than surviving the craziness of the call to prophetic and radical ministry in a farm community): hiking the 500 mile Camino de Santiago de Compostelo in spring of 2015, and publishing "The Short Bus to Normal," a collection of reflections on life in the rural midwest. In addition to ministry, I'm kept busy with continued restoration of our 157-year-old house, collaborative artistic projects with my international award-winning photojournalist husband, and promoting and booking my son Elliot's music and band, "Elliot Sedgwick and the Moonshine Pioneers." I am looking forward to the legalization of marijuana in Illinois.
