Name: Jan Harrington
Children: Sean, age 18. Graduated from Wilson this year!
Grandchildren: Oh, man…I hope not. (See “children” section.)
Occupation: Retired college professor. Taught Computer Science/Information Technology/Information Systems for 32+ years. Most of that time was spent at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY.
Favorite Pastimes: Coaching one of the Wilson robotics teams. Even though my son has graduated (leaving his team behind), I plan to keep coaching at least for another year or two. I’m an AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego) and am always building something. I also have done a lot of writing on technology topics.
Highlights of My Life Since High School:
Moved around quite a bit. Have lived in Wichita Falls, TX;, Seattle, WA; Tadmarton (Oxfordshire, England); Kotzebue, AK; Waltham, MA; Philadelphia, PA;, and Hyde Park, NY. All that moving happened between 1968 and 1989. My son and I returned to Portland in 2013.
What an exciting life you have had! And lived in many places! I can only imagine how fantastic your Lego projects are…would love to see others posted on our Facebook page as i am sure other classmates would.
Hope to see you at the reunion!
