Wilma Benedict
"She Otta be in pictures" !!
( And I think she's available, guys ! )
Wilma was in our class until she left to study in Europe.
She was a stockbroker for quite a few years,
then decided to go back to college,
to get into the medical field ( at the age of 57).
She earned her nursing degree ,
and went into research, where she ran a lab,
and from there was promoted to a coordinator.
The pharmaceutical companies flew her to different states
to study the drugs they were testing,
and therefore she has had many interesting positions in that field.
In addition to her job, she enjoys her 2 cats and her grandchildren.
Good goin', Wilma !
And thanks for the help with the "transportation"
at the 45th Reunion !!
