Greetings to the fine Class of 1980!
Boy, time flies!...Seems like just yesterday I was driving my '69 Cutlass Supreme across town to Scottsdale High School . I finally felt as if I "belonged" when I made my move from Chaparral High over to Scottsdale High School . I have my fellow classmates and alumnists to thank for my fondest memories of High School. Looking back, I can't believe how many doughnuts we indulged in across the street at lunchtime.....or classtime? I guess it was a good thing that following graduation, I secured employment at many health clubs around the valley..........remember 24 Hour Nautilus???? That was a carefree & fun time for me.

Sparing you my entire life after High School story, I don't actually know how I wound up in this exact position in life, but I believe there's a reason for everything, and am definitely blessed and thankful for all I have, (tangible & not, in my life:).

I hope each & every one of you have been equally blessed in your lives! See you in September , 2000! I missed our 10 year..was working on a ranch in Wyoming.....Laura, did I see you??..does Goosewing Ranch ring a bell??

To those Teachers whose classes I may have "missed" a few times, even though I was present on the office roster..........I apoligize! I now know how important it is to be in class, on time, and coherent. I now teach..........who would of thought??????

God Bless the Scottsdale High School Beavers...................................class of 1980!
Warm wished for the New Year!

Looking forward to seeing you all in 2000!!!>

I was so glad to find this page! My husband graduated from
Coronado High also in 1980 and they have a webpage so I
thought I'd search for one from Scottsdale High School - success! I sure miss
seeing our old school and my husband never tires of teasing
me about it being gone whereas Coronado is still standing.

I attended Kaibab Elementary (now closed), then Scottsdale High School (closed)
and graduated from ASU (hopefully it won't close...) with a
degree in Elementary Education. I've been married 13 years
and we have two daughters: an 8-year old and a 1-month old.
For the last few years I was substitute teaching at my
8-year old's school but I will go back to being a
stay-at-home mom now that we have a newborn.

The only Scottsdale High School person I have kept in close contact with is
Laura Cooper but I would love to hear from others! Spread
the word about this site! It is great!>

Hi, Jim Bumgardner here.  I attended Scottsdale High School for one year only, my senior year,
1979-80, after which I went off to Los Angeles to study music.  After 4
years of
writing avant garde electronic music, I became hooked on computers, and have
been a Los Angeles multimedia hacker/geek ever since.  I got married in
1988 and
have two kids.

In the mid-90s I cofounded an Internet Startup (the Palace) which
subsequently tanked, as
do all Internet startups, and I currently write Interactive TV and game
software.  You may enjoy
my website at www.jbum.com which has a few laffs, pasta recipes, and a
little piano music.

I'm glad someone finally came up with this idea. It's been needed since all the buildings became a dirt lot. Speaking of which, Andre Kelly, that's probably the most effective way to remove a VW from the roof of the auditorium!

Reading through all the above notes, I can't help but admire all of you who have gone on to get your degrees at various Universities. While I went to ASU for over 7 years, I never actually applied for a degree, so am lacking that particular success.

My wife and I live in Olympia, WA, where I am a consultant for a firm which works with Technical Systems (sound, acoustics, lighting, video) for large church auditoriums. My wife is the Food & Beverage Manager at a private country club here. We visit Scottsdale as often as we can, since my folks still live there.

I would love to hear from any fellow Beavers in the Puget Sound area, or along the NW coast. If any have filtered into the Memphis area, let me know. I get to Memphis or Nashville about once a month.

Anyone have an auditorium brick for sale?

Hi Beaves,
I suppose I was most likely to end up doing something with hot cars with a nickname like "Mopar", but haven't had a chance to play with them since HS. My wife Berta (Westwood '83) & I live in Mesa sporting 4 kids - Michael (14), Jacob (12), Samuel (10) & Lizzie (7). We are in the AV business designing & setting up home theater etc.
It's fun to reflect back on the fun stuff - tearing down "Scottsdale High School sucks" signs at Arcadia during lunch with Jeff Jones (and getting chased all the way back to Scottsdale by the football team), the dances with all those cute girls, cruizing Main Street, Central & Wonderview and those brutal tennis matches against Jeff Havranek to see who would rank 19th on the tennis team.

Hope you all had great memories too and that life is still full of good things.

Katrina Gonnerman-Manoleas
Graduated 1980, but really feel a part of the class of 1981, as I graduated a year early.
Sisters Karla (1973), Krista (1975), and Karrie (1983) also attend SHS; father (Paul Gonnerman) taught World Geography at SHS for over 20 years. SHS played a big role in our family.
I live in Italy with my Greek husband (Costas) and our two sons, Kiriakos (born 1999) and Pavlos (born 2000). We are relocating in Spring, 2006, most likely to Denmark, for my husband's multinational career. I am told that I have to learn to like pickled eel. For more info on what has happened in the past 25 years, see http://manoleas.tripod.com/ - it needs an update but gives a good history.
I miss my SHS friends; I have fond memories of the fun we had while in school together, and would love to hear from any of you at katrina_manoleas@yahoo.com . Separately, please put me on the mailing list for any 1981 class reunions, I may not be on the list due to my early graduation.

Hi everyone...Jane Holliday here. Most of you probably don't remember me. That's because I spent all my waking hours on 75th Street or off campus. Fortunately I did get my diploma. Wonders may never cease.
I was surfing the big WWW and decided to see if anyone still cared our old, torn down beautiful school. ( Anyone got a brick they want sell? ) And to my amazement there are a few of you like me who want to bring Scottsdale High back to life.
I moved back to my home state of Minnesota when they took her. ( Scottsdale High School )
Fortunately I had the opportunity to come back and visit every other year or so. Now I have moved back here 5 years ago. I'm home..Yeah!!!!!! I Love Arizona!
If anyone wants to flip email back and forth I am all for it.
I also volunteerted to help with some of the upcoming reunions. Hope you're all going to be there.

This is a great site! My mom just sent me an Arizona Republic article about it, and I think this is a great idea!

I've lived in Florida or The Bahamas since the day I graduated, having earned a degree in Oceanography from Florida Institute of Technology. For twelve years, I rode ships and submarines for the US and Royal navies at the Atlantic Undersea Test & Evaluation Center (Tom Clancy always mentions it in his books). One year ago, I decided I'd had enough sea time for a lifetime, and am now an account executive for Pitney Bowes.

I am from the Class of '80, and it appears so far that everyone on this page graduated well before I did. If anyone attended Scottsdale High School between '76 and '80, please email me at pablojam2@aol.com.

Hello fellow Scottsdale High School Beavers!! My name is Michelle Hamilton (Sohl-maiden name)
and I graduated from Scottsdale High School in 1980! I lost touch with lots of my fellow
classmates because my senior year I attended Cosmetology College thru the Vo
Tech program so I only had one class (Govt) on campus!

I have often wondered about so many people that I went to school with!
Especially now that I have kids in Jr High and High School. I have lived in
Apache Junction since 1981. So although I have not moved far... I still lost
contact with so many people.

I was so disappointed when I was never contacted for past reunions! Thank
god for the web so now maybe I will not miss the next one! Technology is
awesome isn't it???

Anyone who might remember me can email or call me... I would love to hear
from you! I am on the web everyday and check my email often throughout the
day due to being on medical leave from work! I have, in the past, looked
for people on the web hoping to find them. Right off the top of my head I
would love to find Dayna Nelson(1980), Lisa(1981) and Laura(1982)
McConnaughy and Mark Holt (1980). I can't think of anyone else at this time
but I probably will as soon as I send this! LOL

From: bobs100@earthlink.net (Bob Stenz)

Hello fellow classmates. I'm Bob Stenz, from the class of 80 ("the Class with Class") and Camp Kaibab elementary. I moved from AZ after graduation from ASU ('84). Spent time in TX (MBA from UT) and now live in Mountain View, CA (10 plus years) working for a software company. I married Catherine Parker (from Texas) in 97...no kids...yet. Those who know me know that I spent a lot of time swimming at Scottsdale High School . Well, I swam in college and am still swimming today (I met my wife swimming). You may even find me coaching master swimmers from time to time. I miss AZ and look forward to every visit (my mom and older brother still live in the valley). My wife and I will be at the 2000 reunion. Look forward to seeing everyone. >

Hi There! I graduated from Scottsdale High School in 1980. What an awesome school!!!!!! I still can't stand to drive by where the school used to be as it makes me miss the good ol' days. I moved away after graduation but have been back in the valley for nearly 10 years now. I am really looking forward to the 20-year reunion! In fact, I am waiting for Jon Tortoriello to show up at my house right now. He is in town for the weekend from Memphis.

I live in the Ahwatukee area with my beautiful wife Liz (from Minnesota, not an ex-Beaver unfortunately!) and our three kids, Angela, 17, Andrew, 14, and Allison 12.

Hello Beavers, I'm Mark Walters, Class of '80. I spent six years at Navajo
and four at Scottsdale High School and I look forward to seeing and hearing from all of you
whom I grew up with, (close and not so close friends). While there are some
periods I'd like to forget, mostly I'm anxious to hear of my classmates
successes and challenges and have someone new to bore with stories of my
three kids.

I have spent the majority of my adult life in Southern California, although
I spent six years in Atlanta, Georgia. We moved back to Thousand Oaks,CA.
in June 98'. I am presently managing my sons Little League team (my
greatest accomplishment) and doing computer consulting out of my home. We're
active in our Church and community and were most recently blessed with
Rosanna, now one years old.

I have particular interest in hearing about my (and many others) "only"
coach, Jerry Haley. If anyone has information about he or his son Jeff I
would love to hear from you-

Hi, my name is Kimberly Haller. My maiden name was Wong. I graduated with the class of 1980. I missed our ten year reunion because I was in the Police Academy. I still live in the
Phoenix area. I am married with two sons ages 17 and 14. Scary thinking of them in high school since I remember how I used to be. I am a Phoenix Police Sergeant working out of South Mountain Precinct.  I am really looking forward to FINDING some of my old friends. Unfortunately after high school I went my own way and lost all of my old friends. Hopefully I will be able to attend the reunion meetings to help with the planning.  I would love to hear from anyone who I graduated with. Yes, I still have all of my yearbooks and I will be looking up your picture. HINT!!! I've changed alot and like the rest of you, don't look the same.

From: Margaret.Ashton@usarec.army.mil (AshtonMS)

Hello fellow Beavers! I'm writing to you from 'the Commonwealth of
Kentucky' (BURP!). After graduating Scottsdale High School I attended ASU and got my
degree in electronics engineering. I got into ROTC in the Summer of my
Sophomore year (since I couldn't find a co-op job!) and was commissioned
into the Army Reserves upon graduation in 1985. I attended my Officer
Basic Course at Fort Huachuca, AZ, where I will call my home in
retirement. I went to work in St Louis for McDonnell Douglas in 1986,
where I stayed for 3 years, until boredom set in.

I quit (!), went to Defense Language Institute (Monterey, CA) to learn
German, then 'hung out' a couple years, living off my reserve pay and
the 'nest egg' I accrued while at MDC. Guess I wasn't meant to 'hang
out,' since my reserve counterintelligence unit was activated in Jan 91
during Desert Storm. We went to Germany to provide counterterrorism
support to US forces there, so I refer to the period as 'Snow Storm.'
Shortly after returning from that, I decided to return to active duty in
support of the reserves. I will be retiring in 3-5 years, as a Major
(current rank) or POSSIBLY as a Lieutenant Colonel, depending on how the
promotions go. My positions have included Counterintelligence Team
Commander, Counterdrug Operations Officer, Assistant Professor of
Military Science (NAU 96-99) and my current specialty is Operational
Research and Systems Analysis.

Since graduating from Scottsdale High School , I've lived in St Charles/St Louis/Rolla
Missouri, Monterey California, Heilbronn Germany, Little Rock Arkansas
(during the '90 election!), Atlanta GA, Birmingham AL (anyone want to
buy a house there?), Sierra Vista AZ (several times), Flagstaff AZ
(BRRR!), Fort Leavenworth KS (SHORT tour!), Fort Lee (Petersburg) VA,
and now at Fort Knox (Radcliff) KY (home of Armor). I loved Sierra
Vista when I first went there, and bought a home to retire to when I
returned the 4th time (1995).

I never married - I say I move to quickly for someone to catch me! I
keep myself entertained with military travels, bicycling, managing my
rental homes and selling Mary Kay and Melaleuca products on the side.
If you're ever in town, drop in and say HI to me and my 3 rabbits!

I keep in touch with Lisa Gross (now Sternhagen), and vague contact with
Denise Garner. I'd love to hear from my band, track, class or club
friends, particularly Glenda Moy.

Hello fellow graduates.

My name is Dan Heldenbrand. Shortly after school, I attended SCC and then went into the Army, where I was stationed in Massachusetts and then Hawaii for the remainder of my tour. After I returned, I remained in the Reserves for two more years while attending SCC and ASU graduating the school of Interior Design. Since then I have lived in Scottsdale, have been married to my beautiful wife for seven years (a Saguaro graduate... ...blah) (I'm getting the "our school is still standing" crap right now.) and work for Est Est, Inc.; a firm that has been practicing since the early 50's in old town Scottsdale. More recently, besides work, I've also been active in the American Red Cross serving on the North Valley Disaster Action Team responding to valley home fires and assisting displaced families.

I look forward to the weekend events. Has anyone heard from Lenny Hume or Craig Tudgen (Auto Shop teacher) recently?

Greetings fellow Beavers! My name is Matt Hollister and I am from the great

leaving me the only one of my siblings that didn't have the great honor of
graduating from Scottsdale High School . I will always consider Scottsdale High School my alma-mater, as I spent my
entire life up until Senior year in the Scottsdale School District, a
graduate of Navajo Elementary before moving on to Beaver's paradise! After a
short 3 year stint in Mississippi, I moved to Texas spending 6 years in
Houston, and 6 years in Austin. I moved to San Francisco in 1995, and
currently reside in Santa Cruz, CA where I am employed with the U.S Postal
Service. I still communicate with several of our former classmates from time

In my spare time I hang out with other soccer/karate moms, take in an occasional movie, and generally do family oriented stuff.  I like to travel and just returned from a trip to Orlando, Fl. with my son.

Just a quick line check from Robert Kropp, Class of 1981.>

Hard to believe we're coming up on a 20-year reunion. Seemed like only yesterday I was lumping around an old Nikon camera on campus playing newspaper and yearbook photographer.

Spent the next decade or so continuing the role of the photojournalist after college with newspapers, a wire service and finally a magazine gig. Had a lot of fun, saw a lot of neat places and made very little money. Transitioned into another high-paying field(!) - instructing. Wrapped this up when Congress closed Williams AFB. My camera work in the last few years has been technical in nature, shooting up homes and buildings to be renovated with federal housing dollars for a housing agency in Arizona.>

The 80s and 90s were a blur - more good than bad, fortunately! Did the marriage thing. Did the divorce thing. And the beer thing! Did the marriage thing again - followed by the family thing - which now puts me in a house in Mesa, AZ, with three children. My Karma - all girls.>

Started an aviation restoration business a few years ago, and now split my time playing bomber pilot  and head wrench for aero demands civilian and military. Looking forward to hearing from some of our newspaper class alumni - any of 'em carry on endeavors beyond "The Beaver," I wonder?

I graduated from Scottsdale High School in 1981, and here it is almost 2001! What a long strange trip it's been. In the first ten years, I graduated from Scott. Comm. Coll., worked at Motorola, and various resorts in Scottsdale as a children's program director. In 1991 an outfitter from Montana offered me a job as "camp cook." I've been here ever since. Montana - home of the Unibomber, land of the Freeman. Talk about taking a walk on the wild side! (They still trap and skin BEAVER here!) (Yikes!) My husband John and I were married in front of our 18ft Sioux teepee in full buckskins and the works. We own a wildlife art business called Berger's Taxidermy. (No..we do not "stuff" pets or small children) ha ha. During our off season we fish, hike, bow hunt, camp, raft, snow ski, and make every effort to be outside as much as possible.

Hi, My name is Darren Leite and I graduated in 1981. I've never left Scottsdale and currently live in the Hayden & Shea area. I attended school at SCC, ASU and University of Phoenix. In the 80's I worked for 6 years in the Hotel business and spent a very educational 2 years in the car business from 1984-86 before going back to school full-time. Since 1989 I've worked at Scottsdale Culinary Institute where I am Vice President and Director of Admissions. We have about 350 full-time students and It's our family business so I do a little bit of everything administratively and also handle our advertising and marketing. I don't have any children and I've never been married (engaged twice but couldn't pull the trigger!) although I'm probably ready to finally settle down. It's hard to believe that we graduated 17 years ago!

I stay in touch with a number of people and occasionally pop into DJ's where I'm likely to find numerous 81 & 82 grads anchored by Jeff Thoren & company. I'd love to hear from anybody out there.

What a jolt it was to stumble onto this page!   I went to Pima elementary school (with some of the names I see here -- Patty Crowley, I can't imagine you would remember me, but I had a crush on you!).  Don Kesteloot (let's see... mr. quarterback, g/f was Jane Davis in 8th grade?) and George Randolph (big and fast, playing football in the street)... haven't even heard your names for so long.  My fault...  skipping around the country and not staying in touch with AZ roots.  Many other familiar names on this site, already.   Lori Swann... Kim Nelson...  Gibbons sisters...  Jerry Raby from '80... I wish I had been more involved in activities so a few of you would remember me! 

After a brief tour in the Navy (nuclear power), I finally discovered a passion for learning... after stops in several fine institutions, including ASU, I graduated with a degree in History and Philosophy from the University of New Hampshire.   Then PhD study in History of Science from University of Pennsylvania.  A series of non-descript and very boring jobs followed.  Finally found an interesting niche, and am currently VP of Call Center Operations for a telecommunications company in Pennsylvania (but in several other states, including AZ).  I am also currently working on a novel or two.  And still get fired up about astronomy -- thanks, Mr. Lemke (?).  Hmm, that all sounds rather nerdy... I'd better throw in something like I love to mt. bike, snowboard, travel, and ride my triumph (motorcycle) -- thought I don't have enough time for much of any of those things.  I am (finally) getting married next spring in Scotland... to a southern belle from atlanta (who works for a dot-com startup in manhattan).

Please spread the word about this website, because I am utterly fascinated to find out what became of everyone else...

Hi everyone, My name is Nancy (Martin) Velarde of the class of 1981--What have I've been doing for the last 19 years?? Well, I have been a Registered Nurse for 16 years working in the mental health field. Currently I am the Arizona State Hospital in an administrative position. I only left Arizona for 3 years back in 1990 to live in Texas-the humidity was just a bit much, so I moved back home. I met my husband Dennis when I moved back to Arizona in 1993 and we were married in 1994. He is a Police Officer-How ironic considering the trouble I caused during my high school days. Anyway, we have 2 dogs(and that is plenty-hat's off to you parents-) and live in the Chandler area.Still keep in touch with Mary and Lori Sanders (a.k.a. Lori Fatica and Mary Latino.) The class of 81' was great and still is great. I even have relatives that are 81' Scottsdale High School alumni. Shawn Connors (his brother Mike married my sister Sally ) and Kristen (kippy) Nielsen(her sister Michele married my brother Greg)- so as the saying goes ... It's a small world!!

From: DStevens@awarena.com (Stevens, Debra)

Greetings, fellow Scottsdale High School Beavers! Debra Sivley Stevens ('81) here ... I have
really enjoyed reading the messages from my former classmates (even going
back to the Navajo Buffalo years!). Our ten-year reunion was terrific and
I'm looking forward to reconnecting with everyone at the October all-class
reunion and our 20th (egads!) in 2001.

Where have I been? I went to ASU and graduated with a degree in
communications in '85. I've worked in a variety of PR jobs since then.
I've been married to Chris Stevens (Camelback '79) for 17 years and we have
two sons, Kyle (7) and Joel (5). We live in north Scottsdale.

I've worked for the Phoenix Suns for the past 9 years and am currently the
team's vice president of public relations. I also head up our charity
foundation, Phoenix Suns Charities. I've always been a basketball fan, so
it's my dream job.

It would be a hoot to hear from some of my old high-school buddies. Either
e-mail me or I'll see you at the October reunion.

Hey guys ... Steve Swanson here from Class of 1981 ... My brother Mark was also in our class.

I'm so glad to find a alumini page for Scottsdale High .. the school is gone but the memory lives on. I was at a meeting recently in one of the buildings built on the old Scottsdale High School site. It's hard to believe only a street sign remains.

I'm currently back living in Scottsdale after venturing out to the Windy City for two years .. that was long enough !! It was just toooo COLD !! Glad to be back in Scottsdale and look forward to information on the 20 year reunion, missed the 10 year.

If anyone wants to say Hi to myself or my brother drop me a line.

I can be reached at SwanPC@AOL.com>

From:    rozzlw@yahoo.com (Roslyn Wheeler)


My younger brother told me about this site, he graduated in 1983, I'm a 1981
graduate. My name is Roslyn L. Wheeler. I have a year-book from that year,
and it's quite entertaining to look at school colleagues from 20 years ago.
In short....In 1982 I moved to San Diego; in 1986 moved to Michigan, then in
1993 I moved back to the valley. I am a graduate of Arizona State University
and currently teach at 2 community colleges.  I have a beautiful and
talented 9 year old daughter, her name is Leah and I am proud to be her mom!
I currently own a place in the N/W valley but am looking forward to the
opportunity when I can buy some land and move to Prescott. I am looking
forward to the reunion this year. The 10 year reunion was not possible for
me, I had my daughter a day or 2 within the June 1991 date. If anyone would
like to chat or correspond please e-mail me at either one of these
addresses: rozzlw@yahoo.com  or RLWheels@netscape.com  Isn't the information
highway great? :)
