Once a Ghost! Always a Ghost! Mr. Clark! Mr. Clark!
Yes, that was my only speaking role in the Movie Lean On Me. Laughing to myself, no one knew I was writing a story line for the Movie. It was a scary and exciting time in my life. I was a new mother, and only a junior attending Eastside High School in 1987 and I was writing a script for a movie. And they were paying me… a 16 year old…a lot of money for it! I hope I did Mr. Clark Proud!
Let’s just say Lean on Me, was fiction, with a whole lot of truth wrapped around it.
2013...I am now 42, and happily married to a great man Anthony Moreno! I work in Special Education, and I love my Job. I now have two kids, Tavon, my son will be 28, and my Daughter Ashonta is 20. I still have the same best friend Victoria Gurrant, more like a sister now. We are God Mothers to each other’s daughters. God, and Life, has been really good to me. I have attended two, Class of 1988 reunions, and the “crew” is still the same, Smart, Funny, and Loving Parents. I have always been proud to say that I went to Eastside High School, in Paterson, New Jersey! The looks on people’s faces are sometimes priceless! They say things like “Wow you turned out Good!”… I tell them We all Did!!!
