How They Met:
"We met at orientation our first day on campus. We were put in the same group and were given a destination that we had to find and spend the day there (Nelson Ledges). When we got there, Charlie asked me to please hang out with him because another young lady in our group was being "very aggressive". I protected him and we dated on and off then began seriously dating junior year."
"Between junior and senior years, Charlie was working at Walsh for the summer and he bought an engagement ring. One evening he drove down to Newark, Ohio and popped the question at the dinner table in front of my parents and siblings. It was awkward and embarrassing, but I did say yes."
Where Are They Now?:
"We live in Plain Township, not far from Walsh. Now Charlie has to call me "Your Honor" - its great. We are really enjoying our 11 month old grandson and traveling. One daughter is a veterinarian in East Canton. Our other daughter is completing her doctorate in biochemistry at WVU. Maybe she can come back "home" and teach at Walsh."
