Onekama High School Class of 1997


Jessica (Anderson) Dew: New 6/08/05 Hello everyone! Let's see......I graduated from Ferris State University with a pharmacy degree in 2001. After living in Ann Arbor and Connecticut for a while, I've made my way back to Grand Rapids where I live with my husband, Jason, and our 3 dogs---no kids (probably never, but maybe in 5 to 10 years). I'm currently working for Walgreen's as a staff pharmacist and Jason is busy establishing his dental practice. When we have time, we are busy hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, and trying not to get too fat. Looking forward to seeing all of you in a couple of years for our 10 year reunion! My email is jessicadew@hotmail.com

Kendra Lovorn (Brandis)  New 7/26/06 freebird97@gmail.com I currently live in Mattawan, MI (near Kalamazoo) with my husband and 1 year old son Jaxin.  I am a registered nurse at a hospital in Kalamazoo.

Greg Pries My E-mail rodburner AT anglefire.com Besides my daughter, I have done nothing especially noteworthy, though I stand on the verge of great things. Perhaps you will see me on TV some day. I miss all of you.

Penny Yanke: New Feb. 06 Greetings fellow alumni,  I have not ventured to far from the area either.  Although I did live in Texas for a little over a year and may be moving back. It really is gorgeous down there.  I am currently living in Traverse City finishing up my nursing degree.  I am a single parent of a daughter with cerebral palsy so I am taking more classes to specialize in pediatric nursing.  Other than that I really don't have anything noteworthy to mention.  My email address should anyone want it is pennyyanke@yahoo.com

Mike Plumridge / After high school, I spent two years taking classes at Western Michigan University. In the fall of 1999, I transferred to Central Michigan University. In the winter of 2001, I received the Bachelor of Applied
Arts in Broadcast and Cinematic Arts. I bought a house in St. Louis, Michigan in August of 2002 and I married Robin Michelle Gooding of Anderson, Indiana on Halloween of that same year. We have a daughter, Mia Katherine Michelle, who was born on August 7, 2005. I'm currently working as a night shift cashier at Pickard Shell in Mt. Pleasant, MI.

I've been living in Clearwater, Florida.  I went back to school to get my RN.  I apparently wanted to
torture myself all over again with final exams and term papers.  (As if I didn't get enough of them the first time around!)  :)  I haven't married or had any children yet. I finally found someone who I'd like to share the above with someday after my second round of
schooling.  Hope all of you are doing well and are extremly happy.  I won't be able to make the reunion, so keep in touch and email me at
