Bob Pack, an internationally known sculptor, is one of the two members of the Class of '65 elected to the Byrd High Hall of Fame. In this video, Bob tells how he was inspired by the Western-themed bronzes in the Norton Art Gallery in Shreveport and how that inspiration led to a career producing life-size bronzes of golf legends, among other works. He is probably the only member of the Byrd Class of '65 to have had a private audience with Pope John Paul II, to present a bronze he created of Jesus as the Good Shepherd. Bob and his wife, Cindy (Byrd Class of '66) live in Sugar Land, Texas.
Dr. Gene Hunt, president of the C.E. Byrd Class of '65 and standout quarterback, is one of the two members of the Class of '65 elected to the Byrd Hall of Fame. Gene describes how he quit his job as a CPA and started on a new path that led him to medical school and ultimately to his current position as chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Gene and his wife, Betty, an endurance horse racer and a former nurse, live in Dallas.
So, here we are "seniors" -- 50 years later, 50 years wiser. What have we learned since we graduated from Byrd? Looking back, what made our class so special? In this video, some of our classmates offer up insights gained from long experience and reminisce about treasured friendships. Narrated by Dr. Pam George, one of the MCs at the last assembly of the Class of '65 almost 50 years ago.
