Class of 1962
Marcie (Benckert) Pettigrew Hello class of '62! I am looking forward to our reunion this September. It seems so impossible that 40 years has passed since our graduation! How can that possibly be? I certainly don't feel that old! I'm still living in the south bay, I have a 24 year old son who will be going to graduate school at UCLA this fall and I am still working full time. I keep busy dancing West Coast Swing and Hustle, snow ski racing and tournament water skiing. I'm looking forward to seeing my former classmates at the reunion.

Tom Monaghan We were the first class to go to, the then new, South High for all four years. Going through all the growing pains of the new school with no grass, cafeteria, gym, confused faculty and student body most of the time trying to get the new school organized and up and running. By 1962 however, things were running pretty smoothly. Our Graduation was held at El Camino College because we didn't have a football stadium that could handle that many people and besides, there weren't any lights at the existing field yet. What great times we had though, as you can read about if you log onto the site. This site has been a wonderful way to catch up with some old friends and memories. As for me, after staying close to home and raising two children, I moved to San Diego in '80 to get into the Yacht Brokerage business. Recently, the business has taken me a little north to Newport Beach where I live aboard my boat and manage a Yacht Brokerage office located on the Boardwalk on Lido Isle. I know, it's a tough job, but.............. The best part is that I now have four grandbabies that live within 15 minutes of me and I'm loving every minute of my life with them. Being a "Bampa", as they call me, is the best thing that's ever happened to me in my wildest dreams.

Mike Moor Just wanted to say "howdy" to fellow SHS grads of 62. I look forward to hearing from any of you. Take care and have a great 2004.

Granville Pool Granville Pool I worked in Yosemite in 1965 and met my wife there. We moved to Eureka in 1966 and got married that year. I attended Humboldt State and UCSB. I worked in environmental planning for a while, then became an appraiser, then a right-of-way agent. Last year, I changed carriers again (was getting bored) and am now in facilities management for Mendocino County. We moved to Ukiah in 1979 and it has been a great place to live and raise a family! We have a 30-year-old daughter in San Diego and a 24-year-old son near us. We have a 2 1/2-year-old grandson and another grandkidlet on the way (as of October 2001). We plan to attend the Class-of-'62 40-year reunion, if there is one.

Eugene J. Walls I hope it is not too late, but I would like information on a 40 year reunion for the class of 1962. I didn't graduate from South High because my parents moved in my senior year, but all the people I grew up with went and graduated from there. I would have graduated in 1962. I have given you my wife's EMail address for you to contact me. Thank you, Gene Walls
