#52Ancestors in 52 Weeks: Yearbook

While I’ve had access to Ancestry.com, I looked up my parents and a few other more recent relatives in their yearbook collection. I learned something I didn’t know about my dad.

That’s my dad on the right.

Until I saw the photos, I never knew – or at least I don’t ever remembering hearing anyone mention – that he worked on the school newspaper. In 1952, according to the Tate High School (Pensacola, Fla.) yearbook, William Hahn was a reporter, and in 1953, he was listed as a business manager.

I’ve always liked writing, and although I never worked on the school paper, I did grow up to work in television news. It’s something I never knew I had in common with him. Isn’t that strange? I would sure like to find an old issue of the “Crimson and Gray” and read an article that he wrote.

My dad is second from the right. What’s that look he’s giving his classmate there?

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
