Class of '98 Today...

Brynn (Pedersen) Clinger

Hey, VHS Class of '98!!! It seems like 10 years has gone by faster than I remember it. Here is a little update on what I have been doing since high school. After graduation I went up to Ricks College 3 weeks later where I got my Associates Degree. I loved the campus life and enjoyed anything social that I could be apart of. I worked two summers as an EFY counselor and had a great time partying. Upon finishing at Ricks, I moved up to Utah State and instantly learned what the real party life was like. I joined Student Alumni and a few other clubs and somehow found time to finish school while there. I graduated with my Bachelors in Family Human Development in May 2002. I moved to Salt Lake City and started working for the University Neuropsychiatric Institute with the youth.

While living in Salt Lake I met Matt Clinger, my best friend (and husband), and instantly fell in love with him. We were married in January 2004. Matt attended the U of U studying Architecture while I worked for a non-profit organization, RISE, Inc. I worked with at Risk Foster Children, trying to stabilize them in a positive environment that would have otherwise been impossible for them to handle. I quit that job when we welcomed our little girl, Samantha, in May 2005. About 15 months later in August 2006, Eston, our little boy, was born. We are currently awaiting the arrival of our TWINS in November of this year. So Just like many others, I will be on the Preggo bandwagon. We live in the Sugarhouse area of Salt Lake City, but are currently looking to move to accommodate our growing family. Matt finished his Masters Degree in May 2007 and now works as an Intern Architect for an Architecture firm, MHTN Architects, that is based in Downtown Salt Lake City. We enjoy getting out of the city when we can and traveling to new places. Currently, I enjoy getting outside for a good hike, camping trip, or just to be in the sunshine. I enjoy being at home with my children, and being among my family and friends. I am very happy about what I have accomplished in the last 10 years and the wonderful things in my life. I look forward to seeing everyone else and hearing about the things that you have all been doing over this last decade.See you at the Reunion. Just like many others, our pictures are a little old. We need to update.

Arrival of TWINS!!!! I think I would be a little afraid, I'm not going to lie. That's awesome. How have you been feeling? Is this pregnancy a lot harder than your others? That will be very exciting, good luck and hope to see you at the reunion.

Thanks for the Luck!! We are excited. I feel okay for the most part, but yes, this pregnancy is a lot different. I can't wait to see you at the reunion as well. It's nice to know I am not the only person popping out kids fast. We are definitely getting bonus points.
