  Welcome to the Shawnee Mission West Class of 1966 Website 



Joe Ficklin, "What do you spend your time doing these days?"

After graduating from SMW in 1966 I attended Pittsburg State University, graduating in 1971, with a BSBA in Business Administration. Upon graduation I moved to Houston, TX. where I enjoyed a career in sales management in the chemical and plastics industry,  which took me to most parts  of the United States and several foreign countries. My wife and I have a blended family of four children, two grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

Over the years we have spent time boating , sailing, playing golf, and traveling. Since retiring a few years back we have continued the golf and traveling( the boats are gone), visiting friends around the country, and of course spending time with family. I look back fondly to those years at “ West”, we had a great class and great teachers. I wish all fellow Viking ’66 members the very best.
