Hey, my name is David Robinson,  A while ago my brother Shawn posted a message about running into John Petty John in Iraq and that the last time he had seen him was at Jeff Halliday's grad party.  Shawn couldn't believe the responses that his posting got and he shared them with me; it was fun to remember the good ol days.   Anyway I thought I might have some news to contribute. I was just in Moon, June 6 (2004), for Jeff Halliday's wedding; he met a really nice girl named Susan and she's as quick witted and charming as Jeff (who by the way is now anchoring sports on TV for CBS in West VA very cool).  His wedding reception was a really good time and the guest list included many of Moon High's own including my good friends Alex Panis, and Bill Brenhisen (spelling) who were groomsmen along with me and two of Jeff's friends from college.

Class of 96 Rocks!! Go CC!!!
 - David Robinson Tiger Pride!

Hi, I thought you would find this story interesting, My name is Shawn Robinson, my twin brother Dave and I graduated from Moon High School in 1996! I am now a Marine Corps Helicopter Pilot. I am currently stationed in Iraq with HMH-466 WolfPack. When we first got here we were relieving some Army units so they could go home. Anyway I was waiting in Line to get "Chow" (which by the way chow here makes Moon High School's cafeteria look like a five star restaurant) so I'm in line to get chow and I feel this hand on my shoulder and guess who it is! John PettyJohn! He is in the Army now! Any way I recognized him instantly and he obviously recognized me. We graduated Moon High School together and I haven't seen him since Jeff Halliday's Grad party! Who knew the next time I would see him would be in IRAQ! Any way we talked for a while and reflected on some of the old High School times. It was a great Morale Booster to see someone from home! Well I hope you enjoyed this little story, tell every one I said Hi!
- Semper Fi, Shawn

Maybe even in the Moon school district! I would like to hear from any alum who graduated in 1992 or around there. Hearing from some old marching band buddies would be fun.

Dawn Macasek Shields: Hi! I graduated with the Class of '88 and am hoping that we are still having reunions occasionally.  It would be so fun to see everyone and reconnect with friends. I'm currently living in Connecticut with my husband, Dan. We just got married this year at the beach and then had a big casual reception in Pittsburgh. I don't have any kids yet since I waited so flippin' long to get married!  :)  Dan and I have been in CT for about 2-1/2 years now. Before that I was still living in the 'Burgh working for an organization called YouthWorks. I have a Master's in Child Development from Pitt, but in 2001 I decided I wanted to do computer graphics instead, so I returned to school and acquired a Digital Design diploma from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I was working in NY in the Marketing Dept. at Kraft Foods Federal Credit Union (now Quorum) for a while when we first moved to CT, but after we bought a house, the commute became unbearable. So recently I've been doing temp work while I look for another design job. I figure we'll start trying to have a baby soon, so I haven't been very career-driven these days. :)  I don't know how many people visit this website, but I would love to hear from anyone who's interested in catching up. And please let me know if/when a reunion is being planned. Go Steelers!

July 21, 2006.  My name is Amy (Amidon) Guthrie and I graduated in 1987.  After that I studied architecture and planning at the University of Colorado, and abroad in Copenhagen.  I went to graduate school at Boston University and got a Master's Degree in historic preservation, then a job as the historic preservation planner for the City of Aspen, Colorado, which I have done for over 13 years now.  I have been married for 9 years and have two daughters, Zoe, who is almost 6, and Tessa, who is 3 1/2.  My husband David is a contractor.  We live in a beautiful place and have a five minute trip from our house to the base of three ski mountains (Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk), and 15 minutes to Snowmass ski area.   Having kids (plus working pretty hard) has limited the skiing a bit, but we usually get out for a few hours every winter weekend, and Zoe and Tessa are both learning, sure to be faster than us in no time.  It's very expensive to live in Aspen and the lifestyle is a bit surreal sometimes.  I just came home from an evening walk with my daughter and we had to hang out for a couple minutes until a bear that was standing in the alley behind our house ran away.  Sometimes we get the same scary feeling when we see the ultra rich people who are here.  (Ha, ha.)  But there is a great community in Aspen and we feel very lucky and don't expect to leave for anywhere else.  I stay in touch with Missy Stone (going to visit her and her newborn baby in 3 weeks) and Eileen McGuire.  My email is
Greetings all. Melissa (Missy) Stone here. Hmmm, 19 years in 5 lines? Here goes.
After graduating in 1987 I went to Penn State for my Film Degree. Moved back to Pittsburgh and worked at Fox 53 and WB 22 for about 8 years. Then moved to New York for a year at ABC followed by 4 years at Oxygen. I've also done some Entertainment Reporting and Commercial work. Don't be afraid if you're in Wal Mart and see me talking to you on one of the in-store monitors. I now live in Beverly Hills; happily married to a nice boy named Colin; work as Vice President Marketing and Advertising at The Style Network; have a beautiful baby girl named Phoebe and a furry daughter named Tosca. Life is good.   I've dined with Miss Debby Kennedy here in L.A. twice now. We opted for Nicoise Salad instead of Yellow Marshmallow Peeps…but we did sing the Economics Song. Good times.

Hi, everyone! My name is Eileen McGuire Chaput, and I graduated from Moon High in 1987. Anyway, just wanted to send a quick update, since no one else from our class has any "News" posted. I'm married now and have a wonderful, two year old son, Ryan Christopher, and I'm expecting another boy in August. (Good thing I was a tomboy, huh?!) My husband and I live in Canton, Massachusetts, which is a suburb of Boston. We really like it up here, but I do sometimes miss Pittsburgh. (It's particularly hard during football season, when I have to choose between the Steelers and the Patriots!) Anyway, after Moon, I went on to Penn State for my bachelor's degree and then a few years later got my MBA from Babson College up here in Massachusetts. I'm now the Director of Marketing for Geerlings & Wade. We sell wine and wine accessories through the mail and on the web. It's definitely an interesting business! I still try to keep in touch with a few people from Moon, but have lost touch with many! If anyone is in the area, please feel free to look me up! Oh, my brother, Matt McGuire - class of '86, is married with one son and another on the way, too. He lives out in the San Francisco area.

I'd love to hear from all of you (if you remember me?!) and see what you've been up to.  Seems my invitations to the reunions have gotten "lost in the mail"!! LOL.

I graduated with a Business Degree from Campbell University (Summa Cum Laude) in North Carolina in 1994. After my bachelors, I continued on to get my Masters in Administration (concentration in Health Services). I also went on to get a couple of Associates in Computers just to stay ahead of the game. I have been married and had a beautiful daughter (Allison Hunter) 1995. After Air Traffic Control, I really wanted to understand finance and the market, so I became a Financial Consultant (Stock Broker). What a great and interesting career field. In 1998 I moved to Omaha, Nebraska, where I am a regional director for the largest railroad in the world. I did that to be closer to my daughter who now lives in SD.

Kelly (Mallin) Rance  ([mailto:(])   ... It was interesting reviewing this website to see what people have been up to.  I remembered all of them, I wonder if they remember me.   I graduated in 1986 from Moon and took some years off to explore and have fun before attending Robert Morris College .  I currently work for Atlantic Luggage as the Senior Forecasting Analyst.   I am married to a great guy and have four kids - Kady, 13 - Destiny, 12 - Ray Jr, 11 and Kassidy 5.   We still live in Moon and now my kids have some of the teachers I once had.  Life is pretty good these days.
Class of 1985

Hi, this is Tom Teleha ([][] ).  I would have graduated from Moon in 1985, but we moved my senior year. I have tried to keep in touch over the years with a few people who keep me informed of what's going on. I am currently in the US Navy, having enlisted in 1987 after a failed attempt at college. Spent two years on submarines before finding a real job in the Navy (serving chow, doing dishes and chipping paint wasn't my idea of continued fun). Trained as a Hospital Corpsmen and went on to advanced training in the field of Cardiovascular Medicine. I worked in and managed the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for 12 years (and yes, believe it or not I did meet the President, as well as a lot of other big wigs). I served during Desert Shield/Storm with 3d Battalion 7th Marines in Iraq and am currently scheduled to deploy to Iraq sometime in September 2006 with 3d Battalion 4th Marines. I am married to Wendy Sullivan from Ebensburg, PA (we met in the Navy) and we have 5 children. Two from her previous marriage, one from my previous and two together. I am currently stationed at Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base in Twentynine Palms, CA (about 40 miles from Palm Springs in the Mojave Desert). To all those currently serving in our Armed Forces, may you stay safe in whatever you are doing and return home to your families and loved ones and Thank you for serving as well!
Semper Fi! OOHRAH!

Leslie (Cross) Newsom ([]) Well, I joined the USAF after graduating in 1985 but I didn't stay too long.  I did my four years and then I got out of active duty.  After getting out of the USAF I married my husband, who was and still is in the USAF.  So it wasn't long before we headed to Japan, and then onto Hawaii, then AZ, and now we are stationed in IL.  We have 3 18yo (my step-daughter,) a 14yo, and a 12yo.  I received my Bachelor's Degree while in Hawaii and have worked for the Civil Service system for most of my years after getting out of the USAF.  I am currently working for the DoD, Defense Security Service, on the Industrial Security side of the house.  I've only been back to Moon maybe 3-4 times since I left (when I was 18) for the military, but I'm looking forward to the 20 year reunion.  I've wasn't able to make it back to any of the other reunions so I'm really hoping this one will work out.  (I have a work-related class I have to attend from 18 Aug - 18 Sep whoever is planning this one don't plan it during this timeframe!!!) ; )

Patty Timney[]  I wanted to let everyone know about my breast cancer diagnosis last October and how I underwent a complete double mastectomy and now I'm not doing very well. The original physician messed things up pretty bad and I have to have more surgery this December. I don't care who has my address or phone number so here it is.

(actually, the 6 months that I was in the hospital before, the cards and notes were what kept me sane!} I was in 4 different hospitals and ended up at Vanderbilt University Hospital and I have the head of Oncologh and the head of Plastics too. I love my doctors. Just say a prayer for me, ok?
Thanks Deb,

Bob Patterson here!   ComputerBob [][ mailto:[] ( known as Pitter in school ) I am a member of the Moon Class of ’77.  It is amazing to say that we are planning our 30 year reunion for this November 24th.  I have done many things since graduation but have never attended college.  I have done fairly well for myself despite no additional formal education.  I own and operate Up & Running Computer Services, Inc – and have done so for the past 17 years, have been active with the Airport Area Chamber of Commerce for the past 14 years ( everybody knows me as ComputerBob ), have two step daughters and am quite happy with wife number two ( 10 years now with Kathy ).  I enjoy scuba diving and flying power and stunt kites any time I can get a little time to myself.  We have 5 dogs and a cat, live in downtown Beaver, PA and we feel truly emancipated since our 18 year old was moved out in early July.  Best of luck to all of the graduates from Moon – We hope to see as many of the Class of ’77 at the reunion as possible. 
Greetings to the class of 1977 from Yvonne Turner, now Yvonne Turner Johnson[] .  I have not been in touch with anyone since graduation except John Sylvester, my debate partner at Moon with whom I spoke while he was in college or Law School in Washington, D.C.  After graduation I attended Harvard University and graduated in 1981.  I finished Howard University School of Medicine in 1987 and completed my residency in Miami, Florida in 1990.  I have been in Miami ever since practicing Emergency Medicine.  I have been married for 18 years, have a 17 year old son and 16 year old daughter.  We lost our home in Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and survived Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma in 2005.  I fondly remember Debate and Speech with Mr Sakelhyde and Ms. Fritsche, math with Mr. Brockmiller, French with Mrs. Kairys (learning to water ski on the Ohio River in summer school), Debate and Speech tournaments with John and Ralph and John and Julie and Margaret etc.  And hanging out with Tammy and the girls Basketball Team, working as the statistician.  I would love to hear from anyone who remembers me.    Yvonne
