Is the daily grind getting to you?
Well, for a nice break, rush over to the Improv in Addison and catch Oliver Tull ’81 and his comedy group, Usual Suspects, in a show that is guaranteed to make you laugh.
Following high school, Tull joined the Army and was stationed in Germany, where he performed stand-up comedy for the USO.
He attended Richland College and Texas A&M when he returned home, but comedy stayed in his blood, and he now makes a career of it.
When Tull is not playing to live audiences in Addison and throughout the country, he appears in commercials. Look for him in ads for Pringles Potato Chips and Church’s Fried Chicken.
Moving Up in Lake Highlands
Right here in the neighborhood, Lake Highlands’ very own Reg Baker ’69 still works at the Texaco service station at the corner of Kingsley and Audelia. Only now he owns the place. Talk about climbing the corporate ladder.
Baker married Tanya McGuire ’69, who was a dancer and instructor at Gingham Girl Dance Studio in the Northlake Shopping Center.
Remember Gingham Girls? It was a successful studio in Dallas for many years.
Ann Wrightman Stout ’69 updated me about Baker. She just graduated from nursing school and will pursue her career in Minnesota. Good luck, Ann.
On the political front, Amy Bennett ’91 was one of 60 students elected to the Texas Tech University Student Senate. She is serving on the Intergovernmental Relations Committee, which keeps the State Legislature in Austin aware of issues important to Tech’s 25,000 students.
Lake Highlands grad Ginger Moore ’92 recently was named a member of Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society at Trinity University. The organization honors superior scholastic achievement.
At Trinity, Moore also is a member of the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Voices of Trinity Gospel Choir and the chapel choir.
