Residing In: Asheville, NC USA
Occupation: Writer, songwriter
Comments:

Went to Clemson University where l earned a BS and MS in physics, then taught for 20 years at community colleges in North and South Carolina. In 1989 l was privileged to serve as the American ambassador to the World’s Largest Pysanka in Vegreville, Alberta, Canada. (Google it, people, google it.) I retired in 2010 to pursue my dreams of being a songwriter and novelist. In 2003, l came to realize that l was transgender, and spent the next 15 years exploring what that meant and who l was, so in 2019 l changed my name to Penelope Boulder Stephens, and began living full time as a woman.

But no, that doesn’t come close to describing my life. I have suffered much pain, both physical and emotional, but been blessed in ways l can’t begin to list here. If you want to know the whole story, you will have to write and ask. (And l hope you will.)

School Story:

Spent too much of my time at Memorial chasing the wrong girls, the cute, pretty, popular ones, the cheerleaders, when l should’ve pursued the super smart ones. (Not that the pretty ones weren’t also smart. That was one thing l loved about MHS. EVERYONE was smart.)

I don’t know if that last message went through, so bear with me if l repeat myself, but l was the quiet, nerdy one in high school that you probably don’t remember, but l remember you fondly.

Hey, Shari, don’t suppose you remember me, l was the shy, quiet, nerdy one who never did anything to stand out much, but l remember you fondly.

You don't happen to have any information on the 40th reunion do you? I'd really like to go if I can find the money.

You came to a Clemson soccer match our freshman year in college. It broke my poor ol’ heart, and I was never the same after that.??????
