School Story:

I was student at Clearfield for just my senior year, but I really enjoyed my last year of high school in Utah.

Share your story since high school.

Although not very personal, I thought I would use my current bio in this section. It's a good rundown on what as happened since Clearfield days.

Myhre E. “Bud” Paulson is a resident of the Stone Creek Ranch subdivision, Fair Oaks Ranch, Kendall County, Texas. An active volunteer, he currently serves on the Stone Creek Ranch Board of Directors and is an active member of the Architectural Control Committee. He also is a Director on the Kendall County Appraisal District Board of Directors.

Bud is a member of the Air Force Association and the Association of Graduates, US Military Academy. Bud received a Bachelor of Science degree in Military Science and Engineering from the United States Military Academy, West Point, NY and Master of Science degree in Systems Management from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA.

In December 2011, he was retired from Federal service having served as the Director of the Western Management Development Center (WMDC), US Office of Personnel Management, located in Aurora, CO since May 2004. At WMDC he was responsible for residential leadership development programs, customized training solutions, and organizational consulting services for government employees at all levels.

Happy Birthday Nancy! Sorry it is a day late, but I hope you had a wonderful celebration with family and friends. I can't believe we are now septuagenarians! It seems as if it was not so long ago when we crossed the stage at CHS and became high school graduates ready to take on the world.
I wish you health and happiness now and in the future. Let's make sure we keep in touch. Bud
