|Welcome to our scrapbook of pictures
from various FCA Reunions. We have formed an alumni association for the purpose of
providing a tribute to the school and to locate and reunite as many alumni as possible. We
hope you enjoy these pictures of some of the many faces that once occupied this beautiful
campus. Please note that we are using maiden names throughout in an attempt to avoid
confusion. A directory containing contact information and a short autobiography (when
provided) will be available by request.
Although there have been several reunions over the years since the school closed, we only have photographs from a few at this time...
|The 2010 Reunion was held at Wyndham Orlando Resort in Orlando
Florida on Labor Day Weekend 2010 (Sept 3rd-5th). This was a very different reunion since
it encompassed people from the very early years to the last graduating class from FCA in
1983. The Reunion was the effort of Laurie Friese Booth FCA (1976). There was a dinner and
events that were scheduled for the reunion through the weekend. Most of the event was
photographed and pictures are available on Facebook and also on Alumnis Photos on
The 2007 Reunion was held at The Florida Hotel & Conference Center in Orlando Florida on June 22nd-24th, 2007. This was truly a very diverse and wonderful experiment in FCA Reunions. We had classes from the very early 1970's to the late 1980's. This Reunion was the combined efforts of Cherry Murwin (1982), and Jude Rodrigues (1982). Thanks to Donna Buckley Heller (1982) for Alumni Research. Once again thanks to Douglas Currence for our wonderful reunion T-shirts. The shirt designs were provided in part by Peter Thorpe. Our accomodations and events were planned by Cherry Murwin. Onsite photography were combined efforts of Richard Blakely, Jude Rodrigues, and digital picture donations by the entire attending group of Alumnus. We appreciate all those who attended this event and truly enjoyed all the events and meetings. We look forward to more reunions to come.
The 2002 Reunion was held at the Renaissance Orlando Hotel in Orlando Florida. This reunion in June had people from the 70s to the very last class of 1983 who graduated. We did manage to find faculty who attended also. Thanks to the combined efforts of Donna Buckley Heller (1982), Cherry Murwin (1982), and Jude Rodrigues (1982) this event went smoothly and was a success. Thanks to Doug Currence for all the reunion shirts. Thanks to Ed Wicyniak, Eleni Dariotis, Gus Maalab, Donna Heller, Jude Rodrigues, and others who took the time to send us pictures of this event. Hope to do this again soon !!
A 2001 Roomies Reunion was held by several girls from early 80's graduating classes. To see the pictures sent in by Denise Erlich, class of '81, and Tami Thompson, class of '81, click here.
|The 2000 Reunion was the first
event to attempt to bring students, faculty, and staff together from the entire duration
of the school's existence. It was held at the Orlando Airport Marriott on the weekend of
July 29th. It was organized by Deb Hulse (73-75). Deb was also the emcee for the evening
as well as the hostess for the entire event. Another Alumni handled all the financing and
made most of the special arrangements. Speaking of special, Mary Lynn Jordan (faculty
73-75) of our alumni association was unable to attend. She was very instrumental in
locating and contacting everyone. If you were able to attend and can find a little spare
time, please relay your memories of the reunion to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also many
thanks to Sharon Steele (73-75) and Beth Williams (73-75), who were our registrars for the

|The Great Reunion of
1990 was held in July at the Orlando Airport Marriott. It was organized by Laurie

many brought their spouses and children. Several faculty members attended including Mr.
Stevens, Mr. Coleman, Mary Lynn Jordan, and Nurse Thelma Keegan. There were speeches and
awards. Several people made a special trip to the old FCA school grounds. A group photo
was taken and a video was made the night of the banquet. Click here to visit the page.
|Here are some special photos from
the 2000 reunion:
|The busy guy with the big smile who is
shaking Mr. Coleman's hand is Peter Thorpe (72-76), the artist responsible for the design
of this Web site. He also designed the T-shirts for both the 1990 and the 2000 Reunions.
|Pictured above are Deb Hulse, Sharon
Steele, and Beth Williams who all attended FCA from 1973 through 1975.
|This is nurse Thelma (Keegan) and her
husband Llowelyn Doane of 22 years. Some of us called her mom.. She took care of us when
we didn't feel well and even took some of us to church with her. She was great to talk to
and wouldn't excuse most of us from class unless we were really sick. She served FCA from
1970 through the summer of 1975..
|Jeff Coleman, class of 1974 and son of
Mr. Coleman, is shown here shortly before the 2000 Reunion. He is standing with actor
Steven Baldwin on location of a film which highlights skydiving, which is Jeff's
speciality. He has worked as a skydiving instructor and guide for various films and TV
shows including MTV's Real World/Road Rules Challenge. Nice job Jeff!
