Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

You can join the Army, you can join the Navy and you can join the Air Force but, you BECOME a Marine!
Having earned the title of Marine it becomes a integral part of who and what we will become later in life.

There were two Peggrams. This was the older one, Jim. He was already married when I arrived so I don't know if his wife taught school or not. I don't believe she was teaching at the time. They left sometime in 1961 and Mr & Mrs Simmons took over as the dorm Parents for Aills.

I believe Gene Pegrum married the nurse. I believe her name was Tommie. Nurse or school Secretary, one of the two.

My memory was that she was the nurse. But, then I have CRS syndrome.

When I arrived at BR, she was the school secretery. Some time in the 70's-80's she went to nursing school and became the nurse at BR.

Remember Bo Vandergriff? When I was injured in Viet Nam,his daughter was my nurse in Japan.

Gene Peggram married Tommye Sue Short who worked at the school. She was still working at the school by 1980, but was working as a nurse by the early 90s. When I visited the Ranch in summer 92, Gene said she worked in Amarillo "in a doctor's office."

I know the Jim Peggrams had a daugher named Paige. Don't know if that's her in the pix.
