Moon -- Class of 95
I'm Jeremy Moon. I'm currently stationed
in Washington D.C. I am married to Andrea Lombard of Jasper. I have
2 handsome little boys; John-Bailey, 3 and Eli, 4 months. I graduated
with honors in '95. My favorite memory is playing football (in the
traditional gold helmets) with a great group of guys and going undefeated
in class 5A in '92. My favorite teacher is one who never had me
in any of his classes; my dad, Bill Moon. The reason, other than
the obvious, is that I have watched for 27 years as he has devoted
his life to helping young people become successful adults. The most
important thing I learned in high school was that you only get out
of life what you put into it, which was also our class motto. I
am currently serving as a presidential honor guardsman in the U.S.
Coast Guard working in ceremonies for President George W. Bush and
traveling from Arlington National Cemetery to cities around the
country performing full honors funerals for fallen servicemen.
My hobbies are running and playing basketball and softball. My heroes
are my grandfather, James M. Nix, and Paul "Bear" Bryant.
My future goals are to complete a successful career in the Coast
Guard, return home to Alabama to teach high school, and eventually
pursue a political position.
|My dream is to own
a few acres of land in beautiful Burnwell, Alabama complete with a
log cabin, a couple of horses, and a muddy 4-wheel drive with a bass
boat hitched to the back; no more, no less. I guess you can take the
boy outta the kawntry, but you can't take the kawntry outta the boy.
I just want to be remembered as a man willing to give whatever it
takes to help others, because sacrificing a few seconds for someone
in need could change their life forever.
