Hi. I am Jill Wyatt Dew'68. I am "retired". I balance my time between volunteering and enjoying 4 grandchildren! Both roles keep me quite busy!

We all remember the first moon landing. Many of us were able to watch it real time on television. Many others read about the coverage in their local newspaper. Alan Leahigh ’67 was a reporter for Bloomington’s Pantagraph at the time. Read his description of the Pantagraph’s early coverage of the first moon landing here.

Alan is a member of the IWU Alumni Association Board of Directors and was a reporter for the Pantagraph until 1970.

Janis taught preschool through fourth grade for 35 years.  After retiring she has started on an adventure that she had never dreamed of:  training teachers in South Sudan (Africa).  She had the opportunity to hear the story of Angelo, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan.  His story can be found in the book They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky.  The movie is about to be released.
