Judy McKinley - Licensed Professional Counselor

It's always interesting to find out about the careers of the parents of your former classmates, because....well for the most part, you never really knew anything more about them than the fact that they were a Mom or

In light of this fact, I am ecstatic to offer this interview of Mrs. Judy McKinley, who was and is the amazing Mother of a fellow Chamblee High c/o 2000 Graduate Daniel McKinley, and fellow CHS Alum David McKinley.

Jamila Harris - Minister/Radio Host/ Philanthropist

Our next interview is with a woman who partners with her husband and another female minister to give focus and love to those they serve over the airwaves. With Show titles like, "Hot and Holy" and "Why Should I Get Married", the entertainment level of the show is actually pretty high. But breaking in on the Christian radio scene is not for the faint of heart, and one's goals have to be precise and focused...as we will see with  Pastor Jamila Harris.

There's always that chance that you'll go through life doing one thing, only to find that your life's passion is something else completely! In some ways this is the story of Keri Duncan-McDaniel, who still holds down a "regular" job while pursuing her passion for photography.

James "Chubby" Wells - NBA Agent/ Basketball Trainer

On this Thursday before Mother's Day Weekend, I sit in a nondescript gym watching six men play basketball late in the evening. The game isn't really about winning, although there is clear competitiveness in all who are on the court, but rather about getting the two younger guys on the floor to raise their basketball IQ. So while the game continues on for a couple of hours, there's plenty of downtime for their trainer to stop play and berate one or the other on their shot selection, their defensive stance, or on their move -or lack thereof-  to the basket. Anyone looking for a fast physical game will be sadly disappointed. But if they are looking for what it takes to be a professional ball player, they are in the right place, because one of the guys on the floor is James "Chubby" Wells, and he knows what it takes to make it and stay in the NBA.

Black Ice - Photographer/Founder- Inspire Magazine

He's a photographer, an author, a publisher, a web designer,...Chris Bell, aka Black Ice is an artistic butterfly who refuses to stay in anyone's cage.

I've known Chris since high school, and am sad to say that I never knew the genius that lived within his minds eye. But just like so many who walked the halls of Chamblee, he has refused to live by anyone's rules...choosing instead to rewrite them. And boy has he. So without further adieu, here's The Black Ice.
