TERESE SUGDEN'S REUNION BIOGRAPHY
After leaving BGHS, I co-owned Skyway Bakery. I did the books and my partner did the baking, business was great and an offer was made so we sold.
I had volunteered at Saint Viator summer camp teaching a dance class. It turned into a job. The girls in the 6th 7th and 8th grade could come to the dance production class or PE. We performed Godspell and yes it was a smash.
In the mid-70's the MGM was opening and I was the third cashier hired. I work for 7 and 3/4 years with Billy Rafferty, Gorman's biggest fan. R.I.P.
Love and Marriage uprooted me to San Antonio where we owned an advertising sales company. Texas and marriage weren't for me so I headed home.
I was sent to work at the Landmark, Riviera and Dunes until layoffs came in each.
Enough culinary, I decided sales was my thing. I went to work at the Antique Emporium. I fell in love with everything we sold; jukeboxes, gas tanks, autographs and vintage jewelry. This is where my American history class came in very handy. The owners retired and I was recruited for an assistant managers job at "Antiquities" in the Caesars Palace Forum Shops. Next, I sold slot machines at Cj's Slot Connection in the Stratosphere. I managed that store and enjoyed waiting on Chuck Berry, what a doll.
All these jobs we're just fill-ins until the day came to take care of Mom. I retired from 17 years of Dillard's to do so. Mom and I had two great years together probably my best!!
- Cadillac Ranch
- World's Largest Toy Museum
- Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC
- Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
- Amish Country
- Hitsville USA home of Motown.
Now I dance three nights a week with that same great guy. I fly kites. I collect Beatles, Mickey Mouse, autographs and record players. My life is very good.
I must remember my first Gorman love, Romy Mowbray. Thanks for making my freshman and sophomore year fun! You're missed.
