August 2004
Nick '05 Taylor Aiken Faerber '08
"We were in biology class and lab together. He was also on the baseball team and I was an athletic training student. I left a note on his bicycle after an exam and the rest is history. We married in September 2009 and now have four and two year old boys. "
September 1955
Russel '57 and Jane Rogers Matthews '59
"I had dated Russel’s room mate, Dickie. I was asked out to dinner by Russ. It was a matter of three months before I was given the Phi Delt necklace and serenaded by the fraternity and him with “So In Love.” We have been married sixty-one years."
September 1957
Sanford '66 and Charlotte Darden Reed '65
"We are high school Sweethearts who both decided to go to Southwestern and got married while we were there."
