Cherishing Home: Fryfogles find a piece of Marietta in Houston


College sweethearts Wendy Keck ’75 and Jim Fryfogle ’73 called Marietta College their home for the four years they were students.

Wendy, who earned a degree in biology and education, taught at Marietta Junior High School for a year as Jim finished his MBA from The Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania and worked for a year for Marathon Oil in Lafayette, La. Just as Jim’s career as a petroleum engineering burgeoned, the couple married.

Since then, they’ve moved a dozen times during Jim’s 28 years with Marathon Oil. And though the Fryfogles would never live in the 45750 ZIP code again, neither have been struck with a sense of homesickness.
