​​​​​​​​​​​Russell High School

Robert (bob) Treece Allen



Attending Russell High and living in East Point was great. When I started there in '53 as an 8th grader I had already attended 10 different schools and had lived in many places. At Russell I got to know many of you well enough to call you friends. What great memories. I am always so glad to see so many of you at the reunions. After my freshman year at North Georgia College I studied art at Georgia State College. In 1962 I started a studio doing Graphic Design and Illustrations for Architects and the Commercial Real Estate Industry. Retirement is years away so I am still at it. I spend about a third of my time working on re-developing and re-neighboring urban neighborhoods here in Atlanta with FCS Urban Ministries, a third of my time raising 4 Grandchildren and the remaining few hours working.

The year book says that my ambition was to cruise the Caribbean with Mary Ellen Burtz in my 50' yacht. I haven't seen Mary Ellen since graduation but my wife Keri and I can occasionally be seen cruising Lake Burton in our vintage Chris Craft.

Keri and I have been married since 1972. She is Director of Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Atlanta but she is best known as Grams to our Grandchildren.
