Jillian Acock, 3/04:
Hey ya'll, I just wanted to write and let you know what is going on in my corner of the world. Last May (2003) I graduated from Florida State University, with a degree in Child Development.  While at Florida State I played for four years in the marching band, The Florida State University Marching Chiefs. I really miss playing my horn right now. Every year at this time I start thinking about the experience that we all had, and how much we saw and learned.  It still boggles my mind! Right now I am teaching elementary school back in my hometown, Fort Walton Beach, Florida.  If any of you are ever in the area feel free to email me.  I hope all are well! jillk410@hotmail.com
