Class of 1963. Hans Verlan Andersen, Jr. Debate, Drama, Seminary Graduate. BYU BS Accounting 1970. ~ ~ ~ ~ Hans V. Andersen, CPA, Andersen Accounting - Alternate address: PO Box 167, Provo, Utah 84603 - (801) 224-3368. ~ ~ ~ ~ NOTE: My family reunion is the same day or I would be at our 2008 class reunion. Thank you for your ongoing organizational efforts to keep us in touch after all these years. Thanks for asking for a few memories. One of the most enjoyable things about BYH was to run into classmates, brothers and sisters in the hallways all day long. It made it more of a family and friends school. Eating lunch out under the trees and around the beehive was memorable. Sliding down that long banister on the front steps at unsafe speeds was fun. Watching Jed Christensen do the twist in the carrels was fun. I felt sorry for the teachers in the carrels. They would rush around from carrel to carrel with a red flag up, only to discover an empty carrel appropriately flagged by a passing student. Of course, watching a teacher try to plug in the sound system from a ceiling outlet, because some student had pulled the plug, was also memorable. The meanest thing I recall was when we learned the seniors ahead of us, not our class, had broken a plant that Anna B. Hart read poetry to. I remember having what I considered the best seminary teachers in the Church. I was glad we were a small school. It let we students participate in things we were interested in. I enjoyed being on the debate team, being in plays, doing pantomine, extemporaneous speaking, etc. I always felt our student body probably had the best assembly of people with a future, who wanted to do good and be good. I am always surprised to hear about another one of us dying or facing serious health challenges. We are way too young to be accumulating such losses and challenges. I'm pleased that so many are doing so well and enjoying life as I am. God lives and loves each of us. I hope you have great class reunion while I'm off having a family reunion." ~ ~ VJ. @June 14, 2008. ~ ~ @2010

Author Biography: I was born and reared in Utah except for brief periods in Nevada when my fatherís career in ranching took us to that state. I graduated from Brigham Young High School in Provo. Before my sophomore year in college was completed, I had met and married my husband, Corrin, and we left for a semester of study abroad in Salzburg, Austria, followed by some European travel. After returning home my life became centered in our growing family and we eventually had 12 children, though one daughter died in infancy. I continued my education through those years in small ways as time and circumstances permitted and by the time all the children were in school I began to focus more intently in that endeavor. Fortunately, the family participated willingly in my efforts and even sealed and stamped hundreds of letters that went out in my first field research study. Getting Mom through school was a family affair. Over time I completed an Associates degree at Dixie College, a B.S. degree at Southern Utah State College, and a Masterís and Ph.D. from Brigham Young University. In later years I taught some classes at Mojave Community College, Brigham Young University, and Dixie State College. After Corrinís retirement we taught in the China Teacherís Program sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through the Kennedy Center at BYU, and enjoyed two separate years teaching in Chinaís universities. Presently, we live in northern Utah, where I research and write. The parallel experiences of continuing education, and the years of being an at-home mother, came together to make mothering my work and my passion and I continue to speak for and write about its divine importance in any way I can. The stories and insights I have received from other mothers have enlightened this subject, and I hope such participation will continue to contribute to our understanding of mothering. @2009 Alternate email: mothering@janicenielson.com
