Fred White '77

May 2024

Great to hear that my Gilman brothers are doing good. Life has been very busy. My wife, Chadijah, and I are still in Baltimore and are coming up on 42 years married in June. Our son, Fred III, is engaged and working here in Baltimore with an electronics company. Our daughter retired from her career as a professional ballet dancer and moved back to Baltimore after returning to college and getting another degree in nursing. My wife retired from teaching and I currently continue working in the IT field helping a couple of companies maintain their projects. I hear retirement calling in the near future.

A lot of our time is spent helping our daughter with our grandkids. Antonio Jr. (13), Abram Frederick (8) and Aria Rose (3). Our grandsons are currently on their school honor rolls and/or advanced classes for their grades. The youngest is preparing for preschool and she learns quickly anything we teach her. If you want to feel older, try to keep up with a 3-year-old. If you want to be humbled, answer questions from a teenager asking what life and school were like for folks born way back in the 1900s.

I do get to catch up with Gilman alumni through lunches or other get-togethers for sporting events or unfortunately funerals or hospitalizations. I feel privileged to still be in contact after all these years since graduation and look forward to the upcoming 50th.
