The 2000's decade is officially set up. Class of 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, and 2000 were added today along with profile skeletons for each person. For individuals, I added Catherine (Cole) LePelley, Seth Hoover, Lynn Harman, Hannah Randall, Kristen Herrera and Jennifer (Dissmore) Brooks. All members of that decade. Once again, if you submitted info, and I haven't put your profile up yet, it's because I'm working my way to your year. Some of you are a long way off! Lol! I have enjoyed putting this together. It has given me a glimpse FGBI through the eyes of each "group" of students that have come through, and how things change with time. One thing that has blessed me though, is to see that God STILL moves and works mightily in lives and hearts, and FGBI is STILL, through God's power, producing men and women of God, full of passion and zeal for His work! Praise be to God!
The Class of 2005 and 2006 and all cooresponding profiles have been added. Thank you to everyone who has gotten on here to submit your profile information. If you aren't up yet even though you've made a submission, it's because I'm working my way down to your class! Julie Nichols McCauley, Rebekah Johnson, and Caleb Bond were all added. I'd like to see more forms, so encourage your friends and classmates to submit their info. This site will prove to be incredibly useful when I am 80 years old and creating FGBI's 75th anniversary yearbook. ;) My mind's already reeling with ideas... Lol.
I adopted a more systematic approach to building this website. At first I thought "seniority" was the best option and would do first class first, and go down through time in order. Then I thought "demand" was probably better because information on people from those early years is pretty hard to come by. Now... after entering people and classes for several days randomly as demand requires, I decided that going backwards... newest class to oldest will probably be the most efficient way of completing this HUGE task. The newest classes are the highest demand, and have the most readily available information. I have also decided to go ahead and build a profile for each person whether or not they have submitted information. This cuts down on the likeliness of broken links in the future. It may be slow work now, but it will save me oodles of time in the long run. So... Classes 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2008 have been built, and each person in them has a profile. The profile is likely pretty bare, but... our alumni can fix that. So... if you are in Classes 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2008, SUBMIT YOUR INFO! :) More classes to come.
BTW- I appreciate everyone's patience! We have over 1000 alumni so... this will take awhile!
There is now a place where you can submit obituaries for Alumni and Associates that have passed away. Under "Request and Submit Information" is a link for Obituaries, a link for birth announcements, and a link for wedding announcements so others can be informed of important life events. Eventually, when these things start coming in, we will have a designated location for the various events for people to look through and read.
Class of 1964, 1966, 1967 were added. I have no profile information for these early years. I had to skip 1963 and 1965 because I don't have pictures scanned in for them yet... and our scanner died last year after the 1000+ other graduates were scanned in... Anyone want to donate funds for a new scanner? Lol. (Just kidding...)
Also, added a couple profiles... under 1982 and 1995.
Would like to get some more profiles up. Encourage your alumni friends to submit their info!
Added the class pages for 1962 and 2007. No profiles for either, but the class page is ready to link to submitters. :)
Added Class of 1983, Dennis Greeno; 1984, Donna (Faulkner) Greeno; 2008, Nancy McDaniel, Tina Kohlhoffer; 2009, Sarah (Hollinghead) Burgess; 2010, Ashley Rosson.
The Class of 1983 page has been added! I am needing pictures from that year for the slideshow at the top of the page. If you have pictures that pertain to 1983, we would be most appreciative if you could email them to us! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you so much!
A few members of the Class of 2009 submitted their information through the website, so I decided to build that page, and the profiles for those who sent me info. Check them out! Once again, the fastest way to get information on here is to submit your info!
The Class of 1961 is ready to go for now. Information on the individuals in the earlier years is very difficult to come by, so if you have some, please submit it! We would be so appreciative! Right now I only have information for Joseph & Virginia Dutka.
My intention was to systematically add one class at a time, oldest to newest and build individual profiles through information on hand. Because early information is not readily available, I am more inclined to go with the classes I have the most on hand information for. To increase the chances of your class getting up here quicker, please submit your profile information!
Thank you so much! Feel free to explore the rest of the site!
