Rusty Bliss, Class of '72

Cross Country and Track 1969-1972. Best times at Baker....Has to be the friends I made while participating in Cross Country and Track. The most memorable moment...There were so many!!

Attended Northeast Louisiana University and Louisiana Tech 1972-1984. Finally finished with a B.S. in Aviation Management from Louisiana Tech in 1984 (the 12 year program was GREAT!!) I flew as a corporate pilot until 1978 then I went to work as a First Officer (co-pilot) in the airline industry. I am currently flying for Northwest Airlines as a Captain on an A320 Airbus based in Detroit, Michigan.

I am living on a working farm in Somerville, Tn. (50 miles east of Memphis, Tn.) raising 4 children, several horses, and a small cow/calf operation. I am married to a lovely red headed lady (Kris) who is strongly independent, a wonderful wife and a great mother.

Things I enjoy the most? Not to sound hokey but it would have to be my family, two boys (8 & 10) and two girls (14 & 17) The second most favorite would be the opportunity to travel! I have been able to visit almost every major city in the Far East and Europe.

The only special hobbies I have would be raising cattle and showing Quarter Horses.

If you are in my corner of the world please stop in or give us a call. (We could always use a good hand on the hay wagon!)

August, 1997
