Wow! It would be an honor to attend the reunion. Hopefully, I can make it, but I am currently out of the country. I am planning to return home before October, but there is a small chance that I might not be home yet by then. I'll keep you posted. Really, I owe my career to the CMET program at PCC. The "hands-on" style in which the classes were taught by the instructors made sure that I really understood the material. Without it, I would not have succeeded in my Civil Engineering classes that I took later at Oregon State. I am truly indebted to the CMET program for not only a great education abd successful career, but also for some of the great people and friends that I met along the way that I will never forget. Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart for organizing this event!

Thanks everyone for doing this. I'm far from Oregon right now, don't have too much $ in the bank and don't imagine either of those things will change between now and October. I actually stopped in last October (2015) for a visit, and couldn't find Mike, Jan, Greg or Todd :( However I did learn then that Mike and Jan retired and got married, and I left a note on Todd's desk! I want to let all of you know that I have fond memories of my time in CMET (not just the time Greg came in to teach Strength of Materials after getting his teeth knocked out on the Clackamas River; many others too), and I'm still benefiting from the excellent education. Hopefully I'll be able to make it back to meet up with everyone at some point in the future.

Keith Moshofsky class of 1977 I possess a Manhattan-thick phone-directory size volume of completed problems and tests from my 1975/76 first engineering year at PCC. Inside that volume is the unlocked DNA of problem solving. Also in that volume is Dick Wysong's passion and voice; pushing my logic, building my confidence – essentially putting my engineering house in order. I've had many teachers in my life, but none, and I mean absolutely none, ever jumped on a table calling out to the class, “Three-force member! Three-force member!”It was the answer to a question that now escapes me. SO! Thank-you Mr. Wysong. You put together one hell of a program. And every once in a while, I bring-out that bound volume of hours and hours and hours of work, gaze at what I accomplished, and remember an instructor that through his passion gave me the keys to unlock some of the mysteries of plane algebra, plane geometry, properties of bodies – the essential function of numbers. Thanks!

Dear students and staff and instructors and all others connected to the CMET program, past and present. I am sorry that I cannot be with you tonight during this reunion time. My time teaching from 1986 until 2000 was the highlight of my 52 year engineering career. I truly enjoyed my time at PCC. Puts a smile on my face just thinking about it.     Many of you know I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1996 and could no longer function in the Pacific Northwest because of the weather. I had to go back south in 2000 where I now live. I am in my hometown in northwest Louisiana   Thank you all for letting me share in your lives during those 14 years. They will always be wonderful and pleasant memories for me.   Good luck to you all. The CMET program is outstanding and just remember that if an engineer is asked what time it is he or she will tell you how to construct a watch.

I'm sorry I will not be able to attend the reunion because of other plans. Please say hi to John Crymes & Mr. Wysong. Mr Crymes was the first person I talked to during my initial visit to PCC Cascade. John was the one who convinced me to do the program. I'm glad I did & very thankful. With the engr tech degree I got a job with ODOT as a highway const surveyor & inspector. 6 years ago I started receiving my PERS pension. I'm now 62. Life's been good.

Hello all! I encourage anyone who was enrolled in the CMET program 1982-1984 to attend. I look forward to seeing some familiar (although older) faces.

The experience of going back to school was a total rejuvenation and the start of a new fresh career path for me. At the PCC CMET program I learned to prioritize and manage objectives important in my life and at the same time forged lifelong relationships.
This was a life changing process for me and I'm so thankful that there are places like this availalble in our community.
