First, let me tell you a little about us. We live in Fuquay-Varina, NC with our 22 year old son Randy.


Randy is a graduate Southeast Raleigh High School Center for Accelerated Studies where he was a team leader on his school's Web Site Development Team which has won several national awards for its website.

This website has won multiple national awards including the prestigious 2000-2001 Golden Web Award from the International Association of Webmasters and Designers.    Education World®, named by FamilyPC as the world's best educational resource and search engine on the Internet,  named them  "Cool Site of the Week".   You can see Education World's comments about the SRHS Website HERE. They also received an award from FamilyPC magazine,  and have received various other national and state awards.

Someone in Washington surfing education sites was so impressed by the school's website that they set up a visit to the school by Ron Page, President Bush's Sec. of Education. He came, but unfortunately schools had to be closed that day due to sleet and freezing rain. Randy did, however, get the chance to meet and chat with his advance team the day before.

Since his graduation Randy has been working at SRHS where he is the Network & Telecom Systems Engineer where he maintains a system of over 2000 workstations and servers, all telecommunications systems, Nextels (including software development), two-way radio equipment, etc.  He is the Webserver Administrator and is responsible for the Web Development Team's Linux servers. He does software development for the websites, internal uses, specialty software on internal computers, etc. He is also the Unix System Administrator.  He is working with the SRHS Web Development Team as a staff advisor.  He teaches HTML Programming to the students and he also teaches classes to the teachers and school administrators on how to construct web pages for their individual classes and departments.

On top of all of this he spends many hours at the school helping with computer and sound system needs of various student organizations, community organizations, and is staff advisor to the school's Robotics team, the Robodogs First Team.

Randy is also a licensed Amateur Radio operator holding the FCC license KI4BRZ.


Sharon is presently working for Troxler in Durham, NC, a manufacturer of testing equipment for asphalt road paving.


Tim retired due to health in 1998 after nearly 19 years as an employee of The Kmart Corporation where he was the Camera Dept manager and One Hour Photo manager in Super Kmart 4955 in Garner, NC.

Tim's hobbies, besides computers, are Amateur "Ham" Radio , where he has been licensed as WB4BAH for 34 years. (boy he feels old when he thinks about that), tropical fish, photography, collecting antique cameras, electric trains, stamp collecting, reading, genealogy, and spending too much time on eBay.

Tim and Randy are both also members of the Wake County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program, which educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.  Tim is the current Secretary of Wake Co. CERT.
