Justin Hegsted

After high school, I went to Ricks for a semester and then on a mission to Mexico City East. I returned in 2001 and moved to Salt Lake with the intention of going to school at LDS Business College (a good reason to get out of Idaho) and transfer to the University of Utah. I met my wife at LDSBC that summer before my first semester. Andrea and I were married in the Denver temple on December 28, 2001 (she is from Colorado Springs). In 2002, we transferred to Rexburg to finish my degree at BYU-Idaho. I graduated in 2005 in Business Management. Along the way, we had 2 boys and a little girl (ages 4,3, and 1). We moved into our current home in Idaho Falls the same week I graduated. Currently, I work with our family business, Challenger Pallet & Supply, and help to manage the operations at our 3 facilities in Idaho, Utah, and Montana.

Well, after high school I went on a mission. After my mission I went to BYU-I to finish my wielding degree and pursue law enforcement. I went to ISU and graduated in law enforcement and now work for Discover Card in Utah. I have a wonder girlfriend that I love. That is about all I've been doing with my live after high school.

Brian Thomas

Wow, 10years and here I am still in school. After Graduation I went to Utah State for a year. Then I left on a mission for two years to New Jersey. After arriving home I went back to school at Utah State studying biology. I met my wife Elizabeth Gill during my first year at USU and we were friends from then on. About a year after my mission I was finally brave enough to ask her out. We were married about 6months later (Dec 2002) in the IF temple. The next summer we went to Haiti to work in orphanages. There we both developed a great love for the kids we cared for, and a real appreciation for electricity and running water. When I finally graduated from USU 2005 I moved on to medical school at Dartmouth and we've been living here in New Hampshire for the last 2 ½ years. Our 18month old daughter Callie was born at the end of my first year of med school. We are expecting our second (a boy) in mid January. I just have 1 ½ years left in medical school and then we’ll go somewhere else for residency in orthopedic surgery, or pathology, or whatever I finally decide on.

Since Ty Hall was the first guy to post, the pressure is off. What is up ! Life is good. After graduating which was a miracle in and of itself..... no thanks to Mr. Abraham. I served a mission in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. It was amazing ! I loved those little brown people. But like many good things that ended. I decided to build homes for a living. It's pretty cool I guess. I've attached a link of all the homes I have available for those of you who want so desperately to move back to Rigby. I'm totally kidding. So one day I went up to BYU-I to find a wife, and there she was. Standing on about the fifty yard line during an outdoor concert. What a beauty, somehow between July and December of 2002 I convinced Miss Angie Powell from Boise to marry me. I tend to think it was more trickery than convincing. Regardless she is the coolest girl ever, and the light of my life. I know mushy. We lived in the large town of Iona for three years were our little Braxton was born. He is a wild man, I have no idea were he gets it, he is three so I guess he's entitled. Finally after missing Rigby so much we made the eight mile move were we currently live. It's great to be back. New house so new baby right. In March little Mr. Dawson was born. I call him Ball because he has such a roly poly appearance and a Huge head. Also we are expecting another due around the end of July. We're so excited, if I'm not at the reunion then we'll probably be at the hospital. We love being parents and our two little men. We also love long walks on the beach, 80's love songs, sunsets... wait a minute this sounds like a desperate personal ad. For the record I have never placed one..... We do enjoy traveling, eating, scrabble, and just kickin it with family and friends. Were excited for the reunion. Take care

Stephenie Bennett Markham

After Graduation I went to Byu-Idaho Majoring in Elementary Education.I had the opportunity to go to Washington state twice to do part of my schooling. The first time I went and lived on Vashon Island and taught in Tacoma. A few years later I went back to Washington to do my student teaching, and taught in the same school district. I love Washington! I graduated with my Bachelors in April 2005. I met my husband Robin Markham while I was doing my student teaching. We were married in the Salt Lake City Temple August 18, 2005. I moved back to Washington and substitute for a year. August 11,2006 we had our little girl Kenidee Luana. She is now 15 months old and BUSY! We moved to Rexburg in April, for Robin to go to school. I now stay home with Kenidee and design wedding albums from home. I love being able to be home and work. I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to.

Amy Harris

Wow! It’s hard to believe that ten years have come and gone! After high school, I moved to Arizona to live with my sister for a summer, and then returned to Logan, UT and attended Utah State. I kept myself on a strict, fast-paced 7 year program! In that time, however, I served an LDS mission in Chicago. After coming home, I returned to Utah State and began attending an institute class from my mission president where I met my husband, Steve. Yes, we did serve in the same mission, but did not “meet” in the mission! We got married that summer and moved to Montana for a while to work. We returned in the fall to Utah State, when it really set in that my husband only had one semester of school done! Long road ahead! I graduated from there in 2005, and we then transferred to BYU-I for Steve to finish. He graduated April of 2007, and this past summer we moved to Salt Lake for him to attend law school at the “U.” So, in this long road, we now fall somewhere in the middle! I am currently working in Park City for Rossignol/Dynastar, and loving the mountains! We’re not sure on where we want to end up, Steve says Idaho, and I tell him he’s crazy! Let’s just say he’s converted to the west coast after growing up in New York.

" After High School Colette went to Ricks, and Beau went on his mission to the England Birmingham Mission. We were married June 15 2001, just 2 months after Beau returned from his mission.

His big brother calls him 'sniffy' we asked him why, and Nate said "cause that's his name", and that just kind of stuck. So we have Natedwg and Sniffy, and they are the coolest kids. In March of 2007 Beau became an Agent for American Family Insurance, and we have moved to Pocatello. Everything is going Great. "

Desiree Radford Heath

Wow, after growing up together, and then not seeing each other for ten years, it’s so much fun to see where everyone has ended up! Your lives are so exciting and your families are beautiful! After high school, I moved to California and went to San Diego State University, majoring in Biology. I loved every second of it, San Diego is a beautiful city, with so many things to do, and the people are amazing! When I came home at Christmas to visit, someone set me up on a blind date with a guy named Chad, from Blackfoot. We dated (long distance) for a year, and then got married in January of 2000. I graduated from SDSU in 2002 with a BS in Biology. A couple of years later we moved back to Idaho so Chad could finish his degree at BYU-I. We live in Idaho Falls now with our three beautiful boys: Joey (4), Benji (2), and Luke (1). We love our home and neighbors and are really happy here… (secretly we would love to move back to San Diego someday though!) We run a couple of different businesses,, selling musical instruments online, and, an internet marketing company. My husband calls me “the temp”. I pretty much do whatever needs to be done, bookkeeping, website stuff, customer service, in between changing diapers and cleaning up after my little rascals.
Hope you’re all doing well! Can’t wait to see you at the reunion!

From there I went directly to Utah to work on my residency so I could go to Utah State. I went there for a year until I served a mission in Denver CO May 2001- Nov 2002. While in the MTC I made friends with Eric Jones and we wrote our whole missions then we dated when he got back. We got married in the Idaho Falls Temple on December 27, 2003. I was able to get my BS in ELED finished before we got married! We have been living in Springville (just south of Provo) while Eric goes to BYU.

Adam Hall

10 years? Are you kidding? It's crazy to believe it has been that long! After graduation, I got married and moved to Utah so my wife, Amber, could finish school. While I worked on my Bachelor's, my wife ran her own massage therapy business in Park City doing massage on a lot of athletes training for the olympics that came to Salt Lake City. I worked at Blockbuster during school as a district trainer for the Salt Lake Valley, but upon completing my degree in Economics, I was recruited by Best Buy to be a manager for the store in American Fork. My wife and I bought our first home in Lehi, UT two years ago and finally adopted our first child in August. We have decided that we really miss the small town and have purchased some land in Rigby. We hope to be up there within the next year.Can't wait to see everyone from the class of '98. Go Trojans!

Reunion News

Remember our senior class president! Kambria has upheld her duty as Senior class president to head the reunion committee. Thank you! Many of our class mates have volunteered and are helping plan the events and find our lost classmates. Thank you! The committee held a meeting and would like to know what day you want the reunion. Please vote on the poll at the bottom of the page. They decided to hold two events for the reunion. During the day, there will be a "bring your own picnic" at (hopefully) the same park we had our Senior Picnic. They are going to try to get a bounce house and bounce obstacle course. It should be a fun and relaxing event for everyone.

That evening, there will be an event at a hotel. The details of the event will come soon! Some ideas include watching the old senior slide show and a new slide show of the pictures people have sent for the blog. We will let you know as the details are worked out.

Kristy Calkins

I've just decided that 10 years flies by far too fast! But, I am SO looking forward to the reunion next year. Let's After graduation I went to Ricks for a little over 2 years then took a break to serve a mission. I spent an amazing 18 months in Melbourne Australia (which is my second home), then returned to BUI-Idaho to finish my Associates degree. Once that was accomplished I moved to Boise (which is where my family moved back in '98) to attend ISU-Boise in their Speech Pathology program. I got really sick and had to drop out of school, but then I found the best job ever at Micron Technology. I have been there for 2 1/2 years and just got a promotion on Tuesday!!! Yes, I am very excited about that. A few months ago I enrolled in a school called "LongRidgeWritersGroup" where I work with a nationally published author (Mary Rosenblum). I am currently pursuing my lifelong dream to become a published author. More about that later. I have the CUTEST niece and nephews and believe me, I am the auntie that spoils them to death. I'm sure their parents love it. I'm just lovin' life to the fullest and narrowing down my list of "Things to do before I die." And, is fun!

Alynn Beesley Becraft

Has it really been ten years? I guess time flies when you're having fun! After we graduated I attended Ricks College for a year where I met my hubby Todd. We were married May 28, 1999 (exactly one year after graduation) in the Idaho Falls temple. We moved to Ogden, Utah where I finished my degree in interior design at Weber State University. We bought our first house in Rigby and lived there for four years. My two oldest kids were born there, Elizabeth Grace who is 6, and Caroline Jo who is 3. Todd was offered an opportunity to spend one summer in Puerto Rico for his job, so we enjoyed the surf and the sun in the summer of 2004. When we come back, we moved to Plain City, Utah. We loved it there, but Todd was offered a promotion a year ago, so we packed up again and moved to Federal Way, Washington where we live now. Our son, Louis was born 2 months ago, and I love staying home and playing with my kids all day. We love spending time at the beach, swimming, hanging out with our great friends here, and riding our motorcycle. Life is good, and I look forward to seeing you next summer!

Nicole Holm Palmer

Well, here's a little update on what I've been doing since HS. After graduation I went to Ricks for 2 years and got my associates degree. After that, I went to Utah State and graduated with my bachelor's in 2002. That summer I married my husband Jon, (who I met at Ricks) and we lived in Logan for a few months. In the fall of 2003, we moved to Washington state, and he started law school. I worked as a marketing rep for a surgical company in Seattle for 2 years,until I had Ellie in April of '05. I've been a stay at home mom ever since. Jon graduated in '06, and he accepted a position at a law firm in Logan, UT, so we have been living here for about a year. We really like living in Logan, it is in between both of our families, and it's small, but not too small!! Ellie is two and she is so much fun. She is a little chatterbox, and keeps me laughing most of the time. She loves animals and playing "mom" with her babies. I am due any day with our second baby (a boy) so we are really excited for him to get here and join our family.

I'm excited to see everyone next summer!
