 Who would you like to trace if we could?

All the people I mentioned above plus, Donna Henriques and the Ashenheims. Since I filled out the interview, I have been contacted by Kim Hubbard, Robby Malcolm, Doris Lancaster, Laura Downey and Paul Smith.  I am thrilled to have been able to make contact with them and would love to hear from others as well.



  Donna Henriques

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

I (with a few of my friends) snuck through the barbed wire back by the auto mechanics class to smoke a cigarette.  Just as the bell was ringing to go back to class a prefect (probably Simon Blake and Stephen Smith) came into view so we were rushing to get back through when I was caught on a barb, I had to just rip my leg off the wire and told the "authorities" that I had tripped on something on the grounds.  I still have the scar today."


Simon Blake

Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?

Michael Ashenheim was one of the first people I met in Jamaica and always made me laugh. He had a great personality.



Where do you live and what do you do now?

I live outside Washington, DC in Herndon, VA. I have raised 4 children with my husband Dan Stapor. I substitute teach and work for a small meeting planning company.



Tell us about any significant other(s)?

My husband Dan and I have been married 25 years and have 4 children, Annmarie (21);Peter (19); Mark (16); James (15). Annmarie is majoring in Interior Design and Peter is majoring in Biomedical Engineering
