The Big Interview - Roger Reid!
As a part of the buildup for the upcoming 40th Anniversary of the graduation of the Class of 1979, the reunion committee is reaching out to find out what has been going on with some of our classmates.
Today’s featured classmate is Roger Reid!
- Roger, where do you live now and where all have you lived since high school?
Following Clemson, I moved to Spartanburg, SC for 3 years before moving to Atlanta, GA where I have been since 1986.
- What would you like to tell us about your marital status, and do you have children and/or grandchildren?
My wife, Peggy, and I have been married for almost 32 years. We have a daughter in college in Minneapolis, MN and a son in college in Milledgeville, GA.
- What has been your line(s) of work?
I own a small business with offices in Atlanta, GA and Greenville, SC.
- What is your best memory from high school?
Our senior year was great especially the senior trip!
- What were you involved in during high school?
Too small and slow to be successful at sports although I did run track my junior year (without much success). I was involved with student government my junior and senior years.
- Who was your favorite or most influential teacher at PHS?
I was fortunate to have many great teachers and I really enjoyed working closely with our class advisors my senior year.
- If you were to be transported back to high school days what would you do differently?
Spend less time on my cell phone…forgot…didn’t have cell phones!
I think I have been to all of them and they were all great. It’s always fun to catch-up with everyone especially since I don’t do a very good job of staying in contact. Facebooks helps me to keep up.
- Have you been to any of the reunions before? If so, what are your memories from them?
- What are your hobbies now, or what do you like to do in your spare time?
Not many hobbies but my wife and I enjoy traveling and of course I like to keep up with my Clemson Tigers.
- Who would you most like to see again at the reunion?
Too many to mention individually.
Thanks to Roger for sharing this information with us!
