Mark Brady was a classmate of Rebecca “Becky” Wight’s. Both were members of the graduating class of 1977 at Seoul American High School. All words below are his unless specified otherwise.
Yes, that picture was the same Rebecca “Becky” Wight who was killed.
What can I say but that her death was a tragedy. Becky was smart and intelligent, it was sad that her life was cut so short. In high school, she worked with me on the Yearbook and was on the newspaper staff. When we heard about it on the news, I remember thinking how senseless it was.
Also, there were no openly gay people (this was the 70s) at the high school although two of our classmates came out and died of AIDS. One of the football players did show up in a dress and makeup one day; we didn’t give him much grief since he was having too much fun.
