I'm quite hearing impaired but get along okay most of the time. No one ever warned me that I might get old someday. If they had, I wouldn't have believed them!
  Favorite Memory from High School How about the "Impromptu Pep Rally" that occurred in our junior year. It seems that many of us became so revved up after a good old Borah Pep assembly that we kept up the rally in an unauthorized manner in the hallway near the main office. During this occurrence, an enterprising photographer, no doubt from the Safari staff, took a picture of the event, and it appears on pages 98-99 of the '67 yearbook. Shortly thereafter, then Student Body President, Don York, "invited" us to cease and desist, and return to class. Those of us whose faces appear in the photograph are forever incriminated!
  Most Important Life Lesson Learned The importance of our friends, especially those from our school days.

I then was hired at Micron Technology, where I'm currently employed, going on 20 years. There, I supervise the production line on A-shift in an area called Singulation and Trim and Form. Hope to retire there. Micron has been good to me and they give me plenty of time off. I've had three and four days off each week going on 20 years. You gotta love that!

Lynette Brown Sali (2010)

All members of our family graduated from Boise State so now we have three generations of Broncos (though Carolyn spent 2 yrs at Idaho so considers herself a Vandal!) We enjoy six incredible grandchildren and one dog, Lily Lu, a drahthaar (a German wirehaired pointer) who thinks she's a lap dog! She's a character and we often call her LuLu.
  Hobbies/Special Interests Learning and growing and expanding my creativity are my life passions. Have grown immensely through Al Anon. I enjoy writing and acrylic and mixed media painting, and continue to take art classes. As a member of Pixie Chicks Writers Group, I am honing my writing skills, working toward publication. I am part of two local church art ministries and create themed pieces for exhibit. I enjoy practical application Bible Studies (especially Beth Moore) and am taking grandchildren with me to Bible Study Fellowship where they love the children’s program. We like 5th wheel camping (Greg fishes and I fish….when they’re biting….and then paint or write). Our family loves to play croquet, bocce ball, and card games
  General Update After graduation from BSU, I have spent my time as a volunteer and raising, nurturing and investing in our children. Now I delight in time with our grandchildren. We love doing art and craft projects and then exhibit their work at the Fair. I am amazed how God uses Grammas to nurture and soothe hearts and in awe how God has used my unconditional love for my grandchildren to teach me about His deep unconditional love for me.

I have enjoyed jobs in varied venues: A Christian bookstore; Job Service Consultant for the Idaho Department of Labor; Activity Director with a local senior independent living retirement community of 85-90 residents (got my CDL license and drove the 16-passenger bus and facilitated many activities), and worked at C.A.R.E. Club, a respite and enrichment day care for seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia. Then I cared for our son Jason's three children so he and his wife could graduate from BSU.

In May '07, I finished a 9-month certification course to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (primarily to help my family's health and write to help others.) It's a holistic approach to nutrition and involves balancing the foundations of nutritional health: a whole food, nutrient dense diet, digestion, blood sugar handling, the endocrine system, essential fatty acid balance, mineral balance, and hydration. (I learned dehydration is the most common nutritional deficiency in the US today!)

Greg retired in 1997 as a Lt. Col. from the Idaho Air National Guard (was an instructor for the Reconnaissance Weapons School and RF-4 and F-4G Wild Weasel.) He retired in April 2010 from his position as a Research Analyst with the Idaho Department of Corrections. An avid fly tyer and pontoon kickboat fisherman, he will float the Middle Fork of the Salmon for the third time this year. He is the original owner of his red 1968 Shelby 500 KR convertible.

We are blessed that all our kids live in Boise and family remains a high priority. Son Jodi writes and produces award-winning radio commercials for Peak Broadcasting; son Jason is Tax CPA with CooperNorman; daughter Carolyn is V.P. Operations for DaviesMoore, a marketing, advertising and PR firm in Boise that handles diverse clients including the Idaho Lottery and the University of Idaho.

  Favorite Memory from High School Winning drill team competition; choir concerts; and shaking the light fixtures at pep rallies.
  Most Important Life Lesson Learned I have several favorite quotes:
“What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.”
"Life is a journey, not a destination."
And an original: “Acceptance brings peace because it unties the knots of expectation.”
My life lessons? Relationships are key to a worthwhile journey: My relationship to Jesus and my relationship to family and friends. I've learned that humility (being approachable and teachable), unconditional love, and forgiveness are keys to building better relationships. I continue to grow as I learn new lessons daily.

My wife is a native German and while on active duty in Germany, I learned conversational German. My kids speak Tagalog, Polish, Spanish and Russian. Some family get-togethers can get quite interesting.
  Favorite Memory from High School I had just moved from Twin Falls where pep assemblies were thought to be mostly for the girls to yell. At the first pep assembly at Borah, when people started cheering, as usual I stayed sitting, but only for a moment when I saw everyone stand and cheer. I learned what it meant to want to win.
  Most Important Life Lesson Learned As a Public Defender, I have been on the local Drug Court Team for several years. I have seen that people can change. A photo is taken when they start and when they finish drug court. It is amazing to see the difference. Not everyone makes it, but it is great to be part of helping those who do. I have had the same legal secretary for 26 years. It is great to receive such loyalty and dedication. (If my grammar or spelling is off, it is because I didn't have her check this first!)

In the fall of 2010, I made a temporary move back to Boise to care for my parents. My dad passed away in April, 2012 (at age 100 1/2!) and in July, my mom came to live with me in Seattle. Life is always interesting!
  Favorite Memory from High School Humanities class, nail-biting basketball games, hanging out with friends - unfavorite memory: running the ditchbank
  Most Important Life Lesson Learned To have faith in the passage of time. When I have something ahead of me that I dread for whatever reason, I remind myself that the event will soon be behind me and, however it comes out, I will have survived. Has gotten me thru some scary tests, speaking engagements, dental appointments, and other unwelcome happenings. On the other side of the coin, there's always some new thing to look forward to coming down the road, if I just look far enough.

I must admit after retiring from my career in Alzheimer's care, life has slowed down considerably. We started a company that has split once since we started and it now employs around eight hundred people. It was very hectic but also very rewarding to help families and their loved ones deal with Alzheimer's. I enjoyed traveling and visiting with all our caretakers throughout the western United States.

  General Update Right now, I am working at a company called AIRE. We make inflatable white water boats (I noticed in some of the other bios that there were some white water enthusiasts out there). A great company to work for, I've been with AIRE for 15 years. Other than moving to Washington for two years right after we graduated, I have lived in our "little" valley always. It is not such a little valley anymore, pretty amazing growth. I haven't gone to any of the other reunions, not sure why I didn't, but am looking forward to coming to the 40th. I think it will be so interesting to see and re-meet some of our classmates. Boy, has it really been 40 years?! Time goes by so quickly when you're having fun.

We are able to enjoy McCall at the family cabin that extends into winter skiing (Brundage and Tamarack). I have enjoyed racing the gates Wednesday nights at Bogus Basin (Nastar program) with Paula joining in on the weekly post race festivities. Fall is a special time for me with an exceptional German Shorthair pointing dog and companion. We begin in the high forest elevations, conditioning and searching for Blue Grouse and, as the snakes disappear, enjoy our high desert canyons - chasing Chuckar Partridge. Camping and hiking is opportune in the high desert and mountains (spring and fall). We enjoy occasional travel including later this fall with a group of friends, biking in Bar Harbor, ME. This summer, we have taken up paddle boarding.
  General Update Finding time and balance around a late and unplanned carreer change into my father's accounting software business has been formidable. The concept that challenge creates growth is alive in my world, although I see the need to craft my own succession plan. Dad is well at 90, although work occupied much of his opportunities for an active and fulfilled retirement.
