I taught for one year, then went to work at CBS Television where I became a producer/writer of
WCBS-TV NEWS. I later joined International Institute for Learning to produce global satellite broadcasts. In 2006 our company published the book I had written, The Power of Acknowledgment and I have subsequently trained over 10,000 project managers, engineers, and executives in the 7 Principles of Acknowledgment. I am finishing my second and third books, "Leadership and The Power of Acknowledgment" and "The Power of Acknowledgment for Kids." These should be published shortly. I love contributing to people with this life-altering, transformational message. I have gone all over the world to deliver it and plan to do a lot more of this.

School Story:

We had to read so many books in such a short time in Mr. DuCharme's AP English class, that when I got to NYU, where I planned to become an English teacher, I went to my advisor and said I just couldn't take pleasure in reading any more books. He told me to read only cereal boxes, comic books and True Confessions magazines for several months -- and read only what I absolutely had to read for my courses. It worked, and I regained my love of reading. I continued to love Mr. DuCharme throughout, in spite of the grueling reading/writing schedule we had to follow.

Hey Ralph(ie)! Hope you got the birthday song that Bob and I sent you yesterday (with harmony). Making up for years of being late for your special date! Hope it was a great celebration.

Hi fellow Judy (weren't there a lot of us in those days!). I want to wish you a very happy birthday and a wonderful year ahead! Let me know if you're ever heading toward the New York area. It would be fun to meet up.

You "wear" our 70 years well (I know this from having seen you at various reunions). Let's catch up some time -- I enjoyed our talks at the last reunion. Happy birthday!

Happy belated birthday! Hope this is a wonderful year for you. Best, Judy
P.S. Looks like we had almost the same hairstyle "back in the day."
