I had a successful career as an Administrator and IT Manager with departments in the State of Illinois. Even though I graduated under the name of Sharon Covill, I've always gone by Shari. After retirement from the State of Illinois in 1996, I was called on to be the Administrator of the Illinois Community College System Foundation, which I retired in 2014. I am happily re-married to Jim, who I knew in grade school. He and I were both widowed from 55 year marriages. We married in May, 2020 in the middle of the pandemic.

School Story:

I only attended OPRF my senior year. I was a Navy brat and as so went to many different schools in 12 years. I was there after my father retired from the Navy and we moved to Oak Park as he was hired by the Elmwood Park High School, he was a teacher before joining the Navy. I felt out of place most of the time as a senior, as there were so many cliques, so I don't have many school memories. I guess I could talk about Miss Shafer...throughout all the high schools that I attended, Danville High School, Danville, IL; King High School in Sasebo, Japan and Woodland High School, Streator, IL, I never required a world history class, well, to get my credits at OPRF I needed that, so as a senior I was put in the normally sophomore class with her. She picked on me, expected me to know everything about world history, it was a nightmare. My parents, both teachers BTW, intervened. I received the credit and was able to drop out of that awful class.

Grade School:

Let's see, Dwight Grade School, Dwight, IL; grade school in Coronado, CA, grade school in Streator, IL, again in CA, then Cannon Grade School in Danville, IL where I graduated.
