Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Lived and worked for a brief period of time back in Houston. In 1977-1980,
worked for Department of Army in Texarkana, Texas and Charlottesville,
Virginia as a Personnel intern. Gave that up to marry Wayne Bloxom and
become full-time stay-at-home mom in December 1980, in Hooks, Texas.
Served in that capacity for 20 years and four children, ranging in age from
21 to 13. Last year my six-year volunteer position turned into a part-time
job at the local library.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Presently, I can't imagine how I possessed the courage to leave
everything behind and go to Tunisia, but I am thankful everyday that I did:
it was a life-altering experience.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone that came to the greatest party to hit Maktar since the Romans
were there! Seriously, anyone who served from 1974-1977.
