I see you are inviting former pupils to make their presence known in various locations. Here are mine:
Name: Edgar D Wilson

Played Rugby, Cricket for school teams at home and away.
member Kilmarnock Academy Cadet Corps. (Is this disbanded now?)
Drummer in pipe band.
After leaving school in 1948 I joined the Staff of the North of Scotland Bank Ltd. serving at The Cross, Kilmarnock and branches in Glasgow, Cumnock and Auchinleck before transferring to the Prestwick Airport Branch.
Eventually I was recruited by The Royal Bank of Canada and served with them in Western Canada and in the West Indies.
Entered the United States in 1957 and was employed by banks in Philadelphia, Boston and Detroit returning to manage the London Branch of City National Bank of Detroit from 1973 - 77. Returning to the USA I moved to Texas in 1980 and saw service with First International Bank, Capital Bank, which became MBank. I then was recruited by Banco di Roma but found my last position before retiring as VP and Representative of The Royal Bank of Scotland for the 12 Southern US States.
Now retired and living in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. Still in good health (for the shape I'm in) and desiring to be in touch with former pupils of my vintage, if there are any left.
I consider that I received an educational experience second to none whole I was a boy at the Academy. I considered it a privilege to attend the school, earning my place there through achievments at Kilmarnock Grammar School.
I appreciate your web page and thank you.
