All is well with the Holleys. I am still at Gilman, although in a different capacity than I was at our 40th reunion. I “retired” from being the AD, teaching, and coaching in 2018. That work is a young person’s game! I now work full-time in development. It's been a good place for me to reunite with former students and players. Rewards in education tend to be deferred, and I feel very thankful to be reaping some of those doing this kind of work! Hard to fathom that when I started teaching at Gilman, the “kids” who were seniors that year are now 54 years old! “Time and tide…”
Stephanie and I have lived in Perry Hall since 1998 and will celebrate 39 years of marriage this June. Our three daughters, Deniece (34), Tammy (30), and Camille (20) are well and spread out across the country. Deniece lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Daniel, her stepson, Emerson, and her son, Brooks. She is expecting a third child (confirmed to be a girl) this summer. Our granddaughter will be named Waverly. Stephanie and I LOVE being grandparents! Plus, LA is a great place to visit in the winter! Deniece works for Spotify running a team that contracts their podcast content. Tammy lives in DC and is a litigation lawyer at the firm of Arnold and Porter. Camille lives in St. Louis and is working her way through the college experience. COVID and national events have made her path (and most of the kids her age) a little unconventional compared to our youth. As a freshman, she attended Lindenwood University and had the great experience of being a part of their DII National Championship Women’s Lacrosse team last spring (2021). My parents are still with us! Dad is 90, and Mom is 87. The Good Lord has smiled on us in every way; we are thankful and blessed!
I am looking forward to seeing you guys at our reunion! I get to see some of you either around campus or on the golf course! I truly cherish our long friendships and relationships! To say that Gilman has been a SIGNIFICANT part of my life is an unquestionable understatement! I can’t thank God and my parents enough for providing the opportunity for me to be a part of Gilman and our class!
As part of our 45th Reunion celebration, members of the Class of 1977 got together for some golf at Mount Pleasant and some grub at Das Bierhalle on the Friday of Alumni Weekend.
Tim Holley '77 and David Reahl '82 reconnect for a round of golf. Tim and David coached the varsity basketball team at Gilman together from 1987-1989. At that time, David was a teacher-coach at Gilman before leaving education to pursue other interests. Tim is still working at Gilman.
