Jennifer (Bostwick) Hoff It is great to read about every one's interesting life paths. Plenty of surprising turns right? After South I got a degree in Geology at UC Berkeley and then moved back to SoCal to pursue a PhD at UCLA. Last time I saw all of you at the reunion I had left my Antarctic meteorites behind for a glorious career in mothering. We've been happily married for 13 years now. My husband Chris and I have 3 delightful daughters (so of course I'm a Girl Scout leader). Allie, Chloe and Olivia are 11, 7 and 3.5.

Bella Charurat Sorta stumbled on to this web page by accident. I am glad that everyone seems to be doing very well. I no longer live in the south bay area. I graduated with a BS degree in biochemistry (yes biochemistry... Mr. Hondrick!!! and still I am c o n f u s e d!) from University of Washington and worked a few years as a research assistant in the Gottstein Cancer Institute in Seattle. After deciding that life in research was not for me, I went back to school and got my PharmD degree from The Ohio State University. Now I work in a nonprofit hospital in Raleigh, NC. So far I love my life. Sometimes I still reminisce about my past experiences at South High. Couldn't make it to the last high school reunion, but will try to attend the next one. Those who remember me-- please write! I would love to hear from you all!

Ending last season, I was the corporate flight attendant for the Texas Rangers, Houston Rockets and Dallas Stars.

For about a year I've been living locally and working at a company near LAX that moves rock bands around the world. I'm just now finishing The Police World Tour. I'm the still-single-but-happy-to-be-an-Auntie to my brother Tom's two kids (and the one on the way). My Mom and my Dad live in the same house in Walteria on Park St. and they are doing fantastic!

Julie (Gossett) Vicuna

Loren Griffing After graduating South and spending about 5 years at El Camino and working in local bike shops, I realized I wasn't destined to work for someone else. I opened my own mail order bike business about 5 years ago, and can be found in my warehouse off Crenshaw just about all hours of the day and night working away (the joys of self employement!). When I do sneak out, you can often find me at - of all places - South (!) helping "Coach" Tokuda cheer on his runners.

Steve Hancock Good times at South High! I wonder if I was as crazy as some of the kids that work for me now? It seems like soo long ago. Great job, happily married, and three wonderfull daughters. What more could a man ask for! Take care.

David A Hanken I'm now a West Coast transplant living in the Washington D.C. area (College Park - Go Terps!) after being a part of the Lomita crowd for many years. I work for the USDA, protecting your environment and farms from foreign invasive species. My two cats (who would have guessed cats!) and three king snakes all get along famously except when I'm out river canoeing or hiking the Shenandoah's.

Kelly (Hansen) Kerschner

Amanda (Hanson) Mangels Wasn't able to make it to the reunion since I traveled there in April of last year for a family emergency. Anyhow, I am working part time in the middle school in my town, working with 7th-8th graders. I like it pretty well. Still busy being a mom and a chauffeur. My kids are in 4th and 1st and still married to my Kansas sweetie going on 12 yrs.

Dylan Harwood Hello everyone! I currently live in Torrance with my wife and two kids (3 yo and 1 yo). After South, I attended UCSD, then LMU, and then U of Miami for my doctorate. I currently work as a neuropsychologist, specializing in late-life memory disorders (e.g., Alzheimer's, stroke). When I'm not sleeping or chasing my kids, I split time between my office in Beverly Hills, UCLA, and some nursing homes in the South Bay. I still surf from time to time, though I'm thinking of having my wife update her CPR training:).

Cameron Hedges Been a while, so I thought I'd leave a little update. My wife and I are now living in Santa Clarita. We are expecting our first child in December (a girl). I am associate pastor at Grace Chapel in Inglewood and work in missions. Have traveled to Turkey several times, Cuba, and Mexico. Not teaching anymore, self-employed, but still involved in education at my church. E-me any time.

Beth Hellyer Hi everyone! I currently live in Acton and teach science for the Palmdale School District. I am a commercial glider pilot and flight instructor, but haven't done much flying lately. I have partnerships in throughobred racehorses and own three quarter horses as well. I compete in barrel racing, gymkhana, trail, and team penning. I also belong to Backcountry Horsemen of California and pack during the summer. My brother, Paul, also graduated from SHS and is now a lawyer.

Karen Henricksen I can't believe it has been half of a lifetime since we graduated from South! After graduating from business school at U.C. Berkeley, I lived in San Francisco for 8 years working as a forensic accountant and playing as a singer/songwriter/ guitarist on the side. I moved to Lake Tahoe as a PSIA ski instructor in 2000 and relocated to NYC in 2001 to assist with 9/11 recovery work. After 5 years in the Big Apple, I recently relocated to Westport, CT where I am the managing principal of the Connecticut office of a national CPA firm (I still dabble in music on the side). In summary, life is good! Glad to see there are so many happy Spartans out there!

Tracy (Hirth) Highwart Hello all! I've been living and working in Huntington Beach for 14 years. Married for 15 years, and have two kids. Life is great...

Ken Hite


Kristin Johnson

Tamera (Jolley) Catto Hello! I am so excited to find this site! I can't wait to see you all at the 20 year reunion. I've been married for 17 years, and have 4 children ages 8-15. I enjoy being a full time mom. I met my husband at B.Y.U., and after graduation moved to Santa Rosa, CA briefly. We moved from there to Las Vegas (for 9 years), then sold our house at the top of the market, and moved to North Ogden, UT where we are now. Does anyone know anything about Julie Kim, Kathy Sharp, or Leslie Smith?

David Scott Kasperik So many familiar names here, it brings back the memories. I'm living just outside of Sacramento with my wife, Kristy, of 14 years. No kids, two cats, two dogs. Current practicing as a CPA with a medium-sized local Sacramento firm, though as I type this, I'm actually in Anaheim doing a financial statement audit. Let me know what you're up to.

Kevin Kennedy First of all, this message is not about me. Instead it is about another classmate you may (or may not) have known. Kevin Michael Kennedy (class of 1988) passed away on May 23, 2005 at the age of 35. He fought against a rare and aggressive form of cancer for more than 10 years before he finally succumb to it. Kevin had been my friend for 35 or those 35 years he had been on this planet. He never became an engineer, teacher, businessman or doctor....then again, that doesn't matter. He remained a loyal and good friend till the end. Many of you will state the successes you've had in life. That's fine, as far as I'm concern. I too have had some success. Then again, I'm not done with life, yet. But, to remain alive, healthy and surrounded by friend who respect you and support you through tough times and good is success in itself. The one thing I ask from all is to remain humble and meek. In the end, all the material success will not matter. It's our circle of friends and family that will. As for you, Kevin, I'll miss you always. It's not easy saying good-bye to a spiritual brother, as well as a life-long friend. - Dean Traylor

Jacqui (Kerby) Nelson This is a wongerful site so nice to see the happy faces. Peace to all.

Atinun Ketulaka What up!

Matthew Kolstad

Henrietta Kopecky Hey Class of 88! I can't even believe it has been 20 years since we all graduated high school! It's even crazier that the reunion is in like weeks! Hope you are all coming! Should be fun and any excuse to see friends from long ago. OK, so that does make it seem like a long time. Well, lets all get together and party like it was 1988! See you on the Queen Mary!

Tom Kragh After H.S., I met my wife Patty at UCI, graduated together, and bounced between Orange & LA county for a while. After working in Aerospace for 5 years (now THERE'S a growth industry for ya!), I quit my job, we packed our bags, and now live in Ann Arbor, MI, where I'm working on a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Michigan (go Blue!). It's a scary thought to consider that a C+/B- student like myself could possibly end up as a university professor warping the minds of our nation's youth. Any kids? - no kids (yet), but we have 14lb cat. What do I miss from high school? My hair. What do I regret the most? Not ditching class more - I was 18 my senior year and could write my own excuse notes! Duh-Oh!

Kim (Skaife) Kilbane Terrific web site! I live in Ohio where I have 3 kids, Ashley (15), Tyler (13) and John (10). I’ve been married for 13 years and work full time in the brokerage industry. My kids and I spend just about every summer weekend camping and fishing, and I’ve developed a love for gardening and cooking. If my kids grow up anything like me, they’ll be big and tall, so they need their green beans!! Between work, soccer, basketball, and (of course) the laundry – is there time for anything else? Email me if you’re ever in Cleveland. Miss you guys (and the beach). – Love Kim Alternate email:

Stephanie Slaton New updates for 2006! I have been a hotel trainer for the last 6 years and was recently laid off, which is the biggest blessing I could ask for. I now have a hospitality consulting business and love being "bossy." : ) I have also owned my own business offering affordable legal services and identity theft protection for the last 2 years. Too busy to get married, so still single! My son, Colin will be 13 this year - almost the same age I was when I started at SHS!!!! Yikes! Please, please email me!!

Brett Slotsve What's up? I'm still living in the area. I got married a couple of years ago and just had my first child. It's a BOY! Named Brandon. E-mail me sometime.

Dan Spahr Well it is 2006 and I finally got married. Life has been treating me very well I must say. I married a girl from Ohio, Bobbi, and we have combined my kid, the dog, with her 3 kids. So far it has been great, and the kids are so much fun. I missed out on the diaper days, but soon I will get to experience it. Our oldest is a Spartan now herself and the boys will be there next year and the following year. I still live in Lomita, and work as a Project Design Engineer at Panasonic. Who knew, jock to Engineer? I am coaching football also at Rolling Hills Prep and loving it, but it does make for long days. So look for me around with the kids and sports I get to see alot of people who I knew at South. Hope this finds you all doing well also.

Doug Sunstedt

Lisa (Sweitz) Maldonado It's pretty trippy to see everyone's pictures and life stories. I didn't actually graduate from South but I'm sure some of you may have remembered me from Seaside, Calle Mayor and one year of South High. I left and moved to Riverside in 1985. I now live in the bay area with my Husband Joseph and one daughter Averie age 10 and life is pretty good.

Hirotoshi "Hiro" Takeda Hey y'all. After SHS, I went on to live in Irvine, Atlanta, Dallas, and Paris. 2009 has been crazy as it looks like I'm spending 1/3 of my time in Dallas, 1/3 in Atlanta, and 1/3 in Paris. I did finish my studies at UCI (ZOT), GaTech (Go Jackets), and SMU (Go Ponies). I am now back in acadamia after years in the IT consulting and semiconductor manufacturing fields (I know, it's boring). I am still working on my PhD at Georgia State University in Computer Information Systems and the University of Paris Dauphine in Management. Drop me a line if you're in DFW/ATL somewhere. (updated 9/13/09)

Deanna (Tittle) Sears Hey everyone! I was only with you at SHS for our junior & senior years, but have fond memories just the same! I live in Redondo Beach with my husband of 11 years & our two boys ages 5 & 2. I used to work at Little Company of Mary Hospital as an RN in Labor & Delivery until I decided to stay home with the wee ones. Hope to catch up at the 20 year reunion!

Deanna (Tuder) Grieco I just came across this website. I'm married with 3 children. I'm a stay at home mom right now. I wish I could make the reunion, maybe next time. Drop me a line if you want to talk.

Tina Van Waardenburg Wow 20 years, I just cant beleive it. Well, I live in San Francisco now, have been up here for just under 5 years and work for Macy's Union Square. I work a bunch, single and enjoying this life up here. I look forward to seeing you all this August!

Steve VanDyke Great to see everyone! I have been living in Nashville, TN for 8 years. (notice any southern accent?) My beautiful wife Tiffany and I will celebrate our 15 year anniversary this month, and we have a 9 year old girl, Leigha, and a 4 year old boy, Kevin. By the end of the year, our family will be moving to a country in South Asia (can't say exactly where for security reasons) to work for the IMB. Visit their web site here. We will be there for 2-3 years sharing God's word with people who have never heard of Him. (No, we're not mormon!) We are very excited to start this adventure. Hope to hear from some of you.

Michele (Vranesh) Polana Are we considered old yet??? Well, here's my long life to date...After getting my undergrad at SDSU and subsequent teaching credential at CSUDH, and after teaching at Redondo Union, and after Grad School at USC, and after 4 years in public accounting at KPMG, and after 3 years in corporate finance, I find myself at home raising our daughter Payton (DOB 9/8/04). A far cry from traveling to Tokyo, Dublin, PR, etc. for business, but rewarding all the same. I am living in Mission Viejo with my husband of 4+ years, our daughter Payton and our two boxers, Tyson and Sasha (my fur children). One additional item of note, I underwent open-heart surgery on Oct. 29th, 2002 to correct a problem I'd had since birth, but never knew about. And just think, all those roller coaster rides, and I survived unscathed!

Joe Vrbas Yep, the crazy guitar dude! The OG BL'er! LOL Been playing music. Numerous bands and sessions. The 90's were fun. Splitting my time between my studio and Animation Licensing these days. Never married. No kids. Live in SFV. See site.

Scott Williams An update... still living in Torrance with my wife, Missy. I've just started my own construction company, Scott Williams Framing (catchy name, huh?).

Julie Zantke I am living and working in Hamburg, Germany where I have been for 7 years now. Just bought a house last year which I am enjoying with my german husband and two kids.
