Class of '78 Classmates Reconnect 

Toby Morris '78 looked up classmate Tim Hendrix '78 on  a recent trip to Salem, Oregon. Toby writes:

"Tim and I had a great reacquaintance after 30 years. We spent the afternoon wandering around Willamette University and discussing family, past, careers, life outlook. Funny how you can carry a friendship in your heart for so many years and pick up as if you had been away for the weekend. It was the highlight of my trip to the Northwest."
