...was rachel a freshman or sophomore in '85 (ours was three-year highschool 10-12 so freshman means 10th grade)... I think she was a freshman.. I didn't realize until now looking back on these pics that she was a cheerleader.. she was really quite beautiful at such a young age.. easily could have gotten involved in any kind of modeling or tv show business... and in fact did do some modeling at the local level (grand rapids magazine) but never pursued it beyond that level as far as I know (that's grand rapids style..dutch style.. keep a low profile.. I think I acquiesced to that ethic as well to a certain extent..and now am glad.. I wouldn't want to be recognized everywhere I go and have paparazzi following me.. )..today rachel is a professor at calvin college.. she followed her brains instead of her 'brawn" ... a good example for some..but at the same time never be ashamed of having physical beauty or a healthy body.. if there was pressure in that regard.. ie criticism from the "armchair quarterbacks" (and some of the Dutch CRC folk can get pretty negative and nasty at times) I say shame on them.. ... sorry for not mentioning the other nice and wonderful and beautiful cheerleaders here as well, but I didn't personally know any of them.. i only knew rachel because she went with me to senior banquet...and her dad let us drive his sweet red convertible corvette (sting-ray).. it was awesome ! nice family.. those sytsmas.. and later I just happened to meet her in jackson holy wyoming... she was visiting.. i was working there for a summer.. we went camping together..great hike.. fun time.. it was hard, being a guy, to respect her innocence being all alone with her on a camping trip, but God gave me the restraint.. thank You Lord.. .. today she's married (not to me unfortunately) and as mentioned teaching at Calvin College , God be with her and the Sytsma family.. always forever in my prayers..
