Dyanne Aker Hughes
After living in Virginia since 1964, I moved to Amelia Island, Florida, to be closer to my parents.
I was married for 17 years but divorced in 1996 and since then have been single.   I do not have any
children of my own so I get to enjoy my nieces and nephews.   Currently, I have a house right off the
beach on the island and absolutely love it-very different from the DC metro area thatís for sure.
For over 20 years I worked in association management, but two years ago I opened an independent
conference / meetings management company and then last year moved it from Virginia to Florida.
I work with multiple clients - both associations and corporations - managing their meetings and
travel as much as I can to the various resorts/cities holding the conferences.
After graduation, I attended the University of Virginia, with Robert (Huck) Greenberg
as my 1st year room mate.  By a strange coincidence, in the dorm directly below us was
Ned Nicholas and Ron Taylor.  This arrangement provided much fun and friendship that has
lasted to the present day.  The next three years, Ned shared an apartment with my brother,
Richard ('71) and I, while Ron and Huck had a house with some guys from the 1st year dorm.
After earning a BA in History in 1977, I returned to my summer job with the National Park
Service, not having anything else to do.  While with the NPS, I was offered a job through
the Dept. of Interior with the residence staff at the White House.  I worked for two years
during the Carter administration, as an operations aide.   I transferred to the Postal
Service in 1979, thinking I would go into management.  After a year of supervising, I
decided it was not for me, and I have been in mail processing at the Northern VA P & DC
in Merrifield ever since.
Right about the time I moved to the USPS, mutual friends arranged a blind date with my
future wife, Donna.  (Click here to see Tom & Donna)
She was already working at the same post office.  We were married
in 1980, and have worked together and raised two daughters while living in Manassas.
Our oldest daughter earned a degree in music from JMU and taught piano until recently
marrying a sailor assigned to a nuclear submarine.  They just moved to Groton CT.  Our
other daughter graduated from GMU in Communications and is a Human Resources recruiter
for Oberon, here in Manassas.
We have enjoyed many vacations to the Outer Banks, NC.   We hope to do more traveling after
we retire in early 2011.   We have been on the night shift almost our entire careers, so we
have had a difficult schedule trying to sleep during the day and take care of the kids.
It will be a great relief to return to a more normal cycle once we retire.
Donna and I have attended every reunion the class has held.   I hope we will see more of you
in the future.

I have such fond memories of Falls Church High School and the friends I knew there.  My
family moved during my freshman year to Pennsylvania.   After one and a half years there
we moved to Vienna, Va. where I graduated from James Madison High School.  I graduated
from Radford College and began teaching in an elementary school in Riner,Va.  an area
near Virginia Tech.   I met my Hokie husband in Blacksburg,Va. and we have been
married for 28 years.  After we had our first child we moved to Roanoke, Va. and have
lived here ever since.  We have been blessed with three beautiful children.   Our eldest
child is 25, and she graduated from USC.   Our son is 24, and is in his third year
Medical School at MCV in Richmond.  Our youngest daughter is graduating from UGA
in Athens Ga. this coming May in Journalism.  Just got back from a football weekend
there, and talk about a party town!  After retiring from teaching, I am now training
to be a Docent at the new Taubman Art Museum opening up in Roanoke.   Our family
likes to hike, kayak, travel and enjoy the outdoors.  It is rare we get all our
children together, so when we do, it is always special.   It has been a pleasure
to get reacquainted with my classmates at the 35th High School Reunion.   Hope to
see the other classmates in the bio section that were not able to attend this
year.   If you are ever in our area, give us a call. (see larger image)
All my best to everyone!
