GECKO YEARBOOK PREDICTIONS

Submitted by Kevin Wells (ACS)

1963 Gecko YearbookHow did the Gecko yearbook prediction work out for you? I was destined for Harvard to major in a science and become a scientist.

It did not happen. The closest I got was applying for Naval ROTC. That may have worked, but there was one tiny problem: The Brahmins at Harvard decided that ROTC and the military in general had no place at that august institution and eliminated NROTC support, which killed my last hope of attending.

There were other problems, not the least of which was an acquired dislike for calculus classes (Calculus classes, not calculus itself, just the classes). I have no alibi on this. If I go to calculus classes and stick a .5 mm mechanical in my leg until it is over, I can live through calculus, and when I went to graduate school, that was exactly what it took. Plus, of course, unremitting drill, a fist full of erasers and reams of paper, and along with the .5 mm pencil thing, I finally survived one each of undergraduate and graduate level calculus.

So, how did the yearbook prediction work out for you?

Let us know in the Comments section below.

    By my own prediction I would be in foreign service.
    But, the only service I provided was beefing up the countries economy by my $$ as I whirled around the ‘foreign’ world. Great fun though!

    WELL, I WAS GOING TO GEORGIA TECH AND STUDY CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, BUT ENDED UP GOING TO AUBURN, AND STUDIED INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING, WHERE I GRADUATED IN 1965.
