6/26/2018 Steve and Helen Denny Clark We are planning on attending the 50th reunion and will be in Tulsa in about 12 days for a visit with family and friends. I think we may take the cake for moving as the house here in Knoxville is number 26 if I remember correctly which is why so many people lost track of us. I retired from a job in Columbia SC where I was working on the VC Summer project at the end of June in 2017. Helen said my timing was perfect as they shut the project down 1 month later. Yes I blame SCE&G management for a large part of the problems. My job was to perform technical review and comment on the Westinghouse Electrical and I&C design. We caught Westinghouse in a litany of errors but SCE&G management would not let us hold Westinghouse accountable to fix the problems. I did a crazy thing in that I got my PE when I was 64 in Electrical Engineering when I was 64. I only had to study for a year to pass the test!
