When did you attend Priory?



Who was your most unforgettable teacher?

Without a doubt, Mrs. Gregory (Miss Greg to our fifth form) - she was unforgettable.

Who are you in touch with now?

My brother Joe, a US Navy Captain and Mark, Beth, Philip, and Kristen Swanson. Their mother, the Priory librarian,  lives near me. Since finding the site I have connected with Allison Bruneman in Dallas.

 Who would you like to trace if we could?

Pat and Mike Chambliss



What's the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

I guess it was one night, two dates with two different girls (one from Priory, one not). I saw the same movie twice in one night.


Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?

Simon Blake, did he really drive around Red Gal Ring with only his foot on the wheel?

Simon Blake - another vote for craziest person!


Where do you live and what do you do now?

I've been in Columbia, South Carolina since leaving Jamaica in 1977. I'm a Captain with American Airlines working out of Dallas-Ft. Worth.  


Tell us about any significant others

I've been separated for three years, after 25 years of marriage. I have two boys, John (Buster) and Stephen, ages 26 and 19, and my daughter, Katie, is now 13. Since meeting Allison in August we have been dating, and we spend as much time together as we can. I am looking forward to moving to Dallas soon to be with her there.

John & Allison - romance through the Priory website?


What do you think of the Priory site?

I'm glad to have a place to go to remember all the good times and reconnect with some really great people! Thank you, Stephen!!!
