Remember Franklin Rosales
When did you attend Priory
How did you locate the Priory website?

Claudia Rosales with Nicole
Who were your most memorable teachers?
Mrs. Jessie Dickson was a very sweet teacher and very popular among the students.
Who were your best friends at Priory?
My best Friends were Fernando Bocanegra and Jonathan Ray.
Who are you in touch with today?
Sadly I have not seen any of my former classmates since 1984.
Who would you like to track down?
Fernando Bocanegra, Jonathan Ray and Tiffany Schmidt.
What was the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?
If you ask my teachers they could describe a few, but I remember an occasion where Susan (forget her last name) was having a birthday party at her house.
She was giving out invitations in the classroom but I was not invited. Obviously I wanted to go. fortunately there was one invitation for another classmate that did not show to class that day. I offered Susan my services and I would take it to him.
When I had the invitation I changed the envelope and wrote my name on it, got my parents to buy the gift and showed up at the party! Susan was amazed to see me there, but she forgot about it when I gave her the present. Regarding my classmate that was supposed to go to the party and never received the invitation I hope he does not read this interview.
What memories/views do you have of Priory?
Oh well, I wish I had finished my School there, but it all depended on my dad's job. Now I can appreciate how blessed I was to be able to attend such a good prestigious school, hope my kids have the opportunity to attend a school like Priory.
Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?
Well Jonathan was crazy, just take a look at his picture (Hi Jonathan! :) ), but there was another guy named Michael I think He left in 1983 or sometime in 1984. He was a Star Wars fanatic, He had every single toy to date, all his conversations had to do with Star Wars but the annoying part was that he used actual phrases from the movie in the conversations! He was out in the stars somewhere.
Where do you live and what do you do nowadays?
I live in my native country Honduras in Central America. I work as a Maintenance and safety manager for a outdoor furniture company.

What do you think of the Priory Website?
We have to build Stephen a monument in his honour or something! I know it must be a lot of work to get yearbooks and scan them, just managing the site is a handful.
Congratulations on your work, keep it up, we all appreciate it.
