Springfield High School, Springfield, South Dakota — 1981 to 1982. Our school closed after the 1981-1982 school year.
Our high school was torn down several years after it had closed. There is now a big bare spot where I had some of the craziest memories happen there.
Every one in high school that year considered me to be overweight. But looking at me now, 31 years later… looks like I wasn’t. I am the fourth clarinet player in the front row. And for the record, I absolutely HATED band and never wanted to play the clarinet in the first place. I wanted to play the drums!!! I still can totally rock out the cow bell!!!!
