Throwback Post: The Tarponette and Her Buddies


July 2009

I’m grateful for getting the opportunity to reconnect with old friends all the way back to elementary school, middle school (Stephanie Sills Lee) and definitely my Oaklawn Jr High buddies! We had so much fun y’all!

The silliest group of teenagers you ever saw! Had a ball being a Tarponette on the drill team with my buddy Valissa Hall McGuffee, marching in the Mardi Gras parades with our band buddies Georges Detiveaux, Dehron Foster and Lillie Powell Salsberry. We tore up them streets of Houma, Louisiana and at them football games!! That’s what we thought anyway! Had such a blast being around each other … Chad Templeton, Dawn Prosperie and Lois Solet, too!

Our little mini reunion in 2009 down in Houston was a hoot! Hanging out and being silly like time had not even passed! I LOVE Y’ALL and am so thankful and blessed that we’ve reconnected!!!
