Class notes for class 1981?!? Please send me what you’ve been up to!
I wanted to pass along some information for the PDS community. My father, Thomas Malsbury, who was a PE teacher, Athletic Trainer, and Director of the Athletic Department during his time at PDS from 1976 to 1987 was recently diagnosed with an aggressive GBM brain tumor. Sadly, this is not a treatable form of cancer. We’ve brought him home at his request, and are together as a family during this hospice period. As part of our time home together, we’ve been looking through old copies of the LINK yearbooks from his and my time there, remembering names, faces, and stories about all the characters we met there. I was hoping anyone reading this will pass along this information to former staff and alumni students. We’d welcome any memories or stories that people who knew him would like to share, and I will be sure he hears any that come our way.
