Where Are You Now?


Hello fellow alumni! I am Ginger Collins, a '66 BFHS graduate and daughter of Lew and Jean Mace-Bonners residents since 1954. My sister, Judy, and brother, Jim, graduated in '65 and '67, respectively.

After graduation, I spent time in southern California, returned to the Pacific Northwest in 1969, and settled in Spokane in 1970. I married Walter R. "Dick" Collins that year. He is now a retired Captain, Spokane County Sheriff's Office, and works with the US Marshal Service while also teaching Criminology at ITT.

We raised two daughters: Heather, who graduated EWU with her BS Psychology, and Holly, who graduated WSU/ICNE with her BSNRN. Both are now pursuing their Master's Degrees.

We have three grandchildren: Aliyah, 5, Calvin, 8, and Victoria, 11. It's a joy to have them all living nearby. I graduated from Gonzaga University with majors in Music, Art, Theatre Arts and Religious Studies and worked primarily in higher education at EWU, CCS and GU. Before retiring in 2001, I worked for three years as the Opening Ceremonies Coordinator with Special Olympics Washington.

I sang for a few years with the Spokane Symphony Chorale and now teach "Scherenschnitte," an "Old World" paper cutting art form, privately at home. Most recently, Dick and I have been helping my folks build our family vacation home on the Moyie River and I'm fulfilling a long-time wish to learn to play violin. But always, I love playing piano and singing for and with family and friends.

Catch you at the All Class!
