Barbara Borgus Prince

After high school graduation I attended Crawford Long and Georgia State College in Atlanta, GA.  I married a year later and returned to Sarasota.  I lived in the Melbourne, FL area, Atlanta, GA, and Legrange GA for the next five years.  I returned to Sarasota and stayed until we moved to TN in 2006 after we retired.
In the 60’s I attended MIC and USF and received my degree in nursing and education. 
My RN career brought many opportunities over the next 30 plus years.  Hospital nursing in various areas of Sarasota Memorial helping open new areas as the hospital grew and grew!  I assisted in the start up of EMT/Paramedic courses at Sarasota Vocational Technical School where I had begun teaching in the Health Occupations Department.  I continued to take courses in adult education and teaching at USF.  After leaving Voc Tech I was an educator at Blake Hospital in Bradenton, FL and worked as a home health nurse.  Then on to Pines of Sarasota Health Care Facility as the Staff Development Coordinator and retired from there after a very satisfying 15 years in 2003.
The long-term marriage ended in divorce.
I was fortunate enough to reacquaint with Bob Prince (SHS class of ’57) and we have been very happily married since 1995.
We have traveled throughout the south and northeast with trips to AZ and many visits to the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas.  We have a travel trailer and a boat so we manage to enjoy a busy retirement from our home base in east TN.
I have two wonderful children.  My daughter, Michelle, is the customer service manager for an international company and travels often each year.  She has lived in PA for many years and we enjoy seeing her there along with trips to TX where my son, Garrett, lives with his family.  He owns a small trucking company and also travels often.  I also have three grandchildren; one grandson and two granddaughters all are in college in TX.
I’m looking forward to the reunion in October.
Thanks to John and all the members of the reunion committee for arranging this party 50 years later.
