Thanks Bill for putting up this site! Graduation from High School does not seem that long ago, but come this May it will have been 30 years.

WOW! I am a City Planner for the City of La Quinta, California (Gem of the Desert) Golf Capital of the World. My first job out graduate school was with the City of Scottsdale and they treated me well for twelve years. As a planner in Long Range Planning, I worked on the Downtown Scottsdale Revitalization Plan; including the plan for new development on the Scottsdale High School property. Yes, I have an original brick (Thanks Leslie!) from Old Main, and a "demolition plaque" from the 20-year reunion. The small town, the West's Most Western Town, that we all knew certainly has changed to a prospering/vibrant urban metropolis; a World Class City.

My current interests include collecting political memorabilia, computers /surfing the Internet, and good Cuban cigars! Sure would be nice to hear from fellow Beavers surfing into this. Torrence, Pam, Lynne, Ron and other TAR's let's hear from you!

I am really looking forward to this reunion as I missed all the others. At the 10 year one I was pregnant with my darling daughter Arika, and by the 20, I was going thru a divorce. Now I am nifty fifty and looking forward to the rest of my life. I am staying with Bev Schulte for the few days of the reunion, bless her for asking me to do that. I am interested in hearing from other grads who were friends and aquaintants at the time so I wanted to give my e-mail address (gg12721@aol.com) for them to get ahold of me.LETS EVERYBODY GIVE A BIG BEAVER YELL!!!!!!

Hey, there! I'm Babette (Gamash) Wood, class of '68. My husband, John, read about this in the Arizona Republic. I also have my treasured bricks from the auditorium, and so does my sister, Margot (Gamash) McDonnell, class of '59, who teaches English at Mountain View High in Mesa. I currently work for the Zales Corporation, in their credit center, and am just finishing my BA degree, finally! In my free time, I do some freelance graphic design work, and still like to sing on occasion. I have 2 grown kids, son Phil (27) and daughter Alex (21). Phil and his wife are both US Army linguists. Alex is a French major at ASU and a proud member of the Sun Devil Marching Band. John and I will celebrate 28 years of marriage this month. (We married young!) He's an ordained minister, and his profession took us to beautiful Belgium, where we lived for 10 years. When we returned, they were just in the process of tearing down Scottsdale High. I ran over and bought three bricks for ten cents each, plus a big, green bulletin board for $10, which is still sitting in our garage. (Anybody want one?) Though not usually that sentimental, I just cried all the way home after buying those bricks. It seemed like such an end of an era. Ah, well... Thanks to Bill for creating this site. Looking forward to hearing about many people!

From: mike_gannon@prosolution.com (Mike Gannon)

Great to hear from you! Now that you mention it, I don't think Saguaro ever
took the Scottsdale High School identification (probably out of respect for the old dotting
Beavers that did spawn us) and just always used "Saguaro" to make sure we too
had not passed into oblivion.

Actually I spent one day at Scottsdale High School when I arrived in Scottsdale in 1966. Being
from a small Eastern seaport town my sister, brother and I attended the "first
day" at Scottsdale High School (the rest of the family had not edged into High School yet),
standing in long lines (as I recall) to obtain books and then being
pretentious to actually speak with "adults" in the administration building to
argue our confusion as to why we had to attend Scottsdale High School when we lived three blocks
from Saguaro? Finally my Dad was called into the fray and we wound up
contacting the District... the result being I spent the rest of the day in the
line to the bookstore to return all the books we received during the morning
(and didn't that take a lot explaining!) and the "second day" of class I was
in Saguaro.
(Sounds like a story for your "Old Tales" (or should you call it "Old Tails"?)
so feel free to use it if you want). Anyway, my sister came in as a Senior
(Saguaro '67) and I came in as a Junior (Saguaro '68) since some of our HS
classes did not transfer to the satisfaction of the school district.

I did notice though that Arcadia and Coronado have their Alumni pages hosted
by the school district computer. I have started to make inquires to see if
Saguaro and Scottsdale could also be hosted there. You are pretty generous
using your AOL account to provide the service, since our page started as just
an announcement page for Reunion XXX, everything on the page is at no cost,
using "freebies" on the web. I also think the District should have a
Scottsdale High page, but run it as a historic perspective by explaining on
the index page that Scottsdale High School was from 19xx to 19xx and explain it is not an
"active" High School any longer. It could still be as massive a site since
there would be a lot of stuff to load on for each of the past years, even if
it did not have a 1998 football schedule on it! Would you be interested in
running that operation if I can convince the District to provide the space?

Anyway, keep in touch... the Beavers may be gone but certainly are not
forgotten, so we Sabercats will keep pointing errant Beavers to their proper
home whenever possible.

Please put me in the alumni directory
Hello Mary:
Very kind of you to reply. No, I did not receive the invitation or
registration. I actually ran across the Web site quite by accident and
began to read it. I passed the information onto my brother (class of 70)
who will be in attendance. Unfortunately, I'm unable to attend what looks
like an interesting two days. I left the Phoenix metro area in 1975 and
have not been in touch. I heard a few years ago Scottsdale High had been
torn down along with my old elementary school (Loma Linda). I also heard,
but have not confirmed, another old school I attended briefly was also
demolished (Paiute). It's hard to imagine Scottsdale High School not there anymore. I was
touched by Babette Gamash's (class of 68) three brick story. Too bad more
bricks were not salvaged by Scottsdale High School alumni. Anyway, after graduating from Scottsdale High School
in 68, I went to ASU and graduated with a BA (history/sociology) in 1972.
From there into a number of management training programs (which took me to a
number of states (NM, CO, WY etc.). Spent a dozen years in Wyoming as the
state director of unemployment insurance benefits and the most recent ten
years have been as vice president, operations with Employers Unity in Arvada
Colorado (3rd party administrator for work comp. and unemployment

Dear Bill-
So good to see you again. I was overwhelmed with "recognition trauma" from seeing so many familiar faces at the reunion, but I smiled all the way home.
Bio - Not nearly enough room, but here's a few quick paragraphs:
Left Scottsdale High School and went to NAU, then ASU, then headed to New York for an almost master's in psychology (spent time as an auto mechanic for Sears along the way) Almost got married twice while there, but skated out ...
Moved to La Jolla, CA to finish a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, then headed to the mountains of Colorado where I think I'd still be if it weren't for a side journey back to AZ for other business concerns. Aspen is home whether I make it back there or not. As I am fond of saying, "Colorado is my oxygen".
Owned a few businesses along the way, deli, mental health center (what do they have in common I wonder ? ), became a cop for the San Diego Police Department, ran a mental health center in a men's prison and lived in Boulder. (not all at the same time of course)
I'm about as New Age as people can get, but the good news is - I don't look like it !!! Learned to fly helicopters (not in the service) and occasionally teach flying when I'm not busy writing and doing phone therapy with people around the country. Whew ! Life is good, I'm happy and still smiling about the reunion.

It was great to see you at the Class of 1969 reunion last year! This BIG
one will be great! Thanks for all your work!

I was Becky Biegert in high school. I went to U. of Texas, lived in
Dallas until 1989 then moved to Flagstaff. I have four children (23, 21,
18 and 16), one still living at home. I was divorced in 1997. I'm
involved in a family business, Grand Canyon Railway. See you all at
the reunion!

2005 Update -
"I am living in Flagstaff once again after spending two years in Vancouver, BC, studying. I am newly married to Vincent Conti. We have a B&B and prayer retreat in Flagstaff. (www.HiddenHollowBedandBreakfast.com and www.HiddenHollowPrayerRetreat.org). Life is rich, and we are enjoying being parents of adult children!"

My name is Joyce Bigelow (Hames) from the class of '69. I'm thrilled to be in touch after all these years. I'm still in Scottsdale. Just can't leave.

What I have been doing for the last 30 years might take a little longer than you want on this email. Summarizing: I am married and have two boys. My oldest is 30 and a New York Life Agent here. My youngest is 16 and a student at Desert Mountain High School. Attending his football games really takes me back to Beaver days!

My business is management, sales, and customer service training. I've enjoyed this profession for 20 years.

Enough of the boring stuff. I'm excited to be back in touch with some much missed friends. Thanks to your good work I found Sue Probst and Suzie Shull--real treasured friends. I'll be checking the website often to see who else is coming. Bless you for creating the website and doing such a thorough job! Connections! Yeah! I'm so glad the Beaver Song is posted. The words are lost in my head somewhere.

I am registering by snail mail but I want you to post my email so my friends can find me. I know this is a huge commitment; and I'm sure I speak for all who want to thank you for your time.

What a wonderful find - the Scottsdale High School Alumni Web Site!  I'm Linda
(Brown) Waldeck, still living in Scottsdale after all these years.

Until three years ago, I worked in the field of pension
consulting, which means marketing and sales of 401(k) and
other forms of employer sponsored retirement programs.  Most
recently, I was a Regional Sales V.P. for Smith Barney Plan
Services.  At this time, I am exploring my entrepreneurial
spirit in other directions, mostly just for fun.  My
husband, Marty, is from Danville, CA and is a former AAA
pitcher for the San Francisco Giants.  Over 15 years ago, he
became involved with with Pebble Tec in the swimming pool

Marty and I have one daughter, Kelly, who just turned 19
years old and attends SCC.  My sister, Joyce (Brown) Wise,
graduated from Scottsdale High School in 1968.  My precious sister passed away
in 1991 after struggling for many months with colon cancer.
She and her husband, Roy Wise, also an Scottsdale High School alumni, have two
daughters - Kerrie, age 27, and Diana, age 23, who we adore
and spend lots of time water skiing with.

Just recently, I heard from Judy (Decker) Chetta (class of
'68) who is now living with her husband, Joe, in Cambria,
CA.  She is a professional oil painter and has some
beautiful artwork on Ebay.  Hopefully, I'll get a chance to
visit her in early 2001.

Of course, I would really enjoy hearing from other Scottsdale High School
alumni.  In particular, I'd love to find Susan Watts.
Here's wishing all a happy and successful 2001.

Hi, I'm Tom Freestone.

I graduated from Scottsdale High School in June, 1969.

I recently attended a High School Reunion for someone else and thought …….... why don't I get Registered for Scottsdale High.

I actually remembered a couple of people's names that were listed in the Class Register; Becky Biegert and John Butts, (It gave me a headache to think back that far).

I reside in Monument, Colorado. I'm a Plant Manager for a Medical Device Manufacturing Facility. I graduated from ASU in 1975 with a BS in Manufacturing Technology.

I remember my Mom sending me an article from the Scottsdale Progress announcing the closure of Scottsdale High and also the demise of the Ranch House Burger joint years and years ago.

I'd be interested in obtaining Reunion information as I travel back to the Scottsdale area once in a while.

I look forward to hearing from you, and maybe from some "old acquaintences".

Thanks for your efforts in keeping the links alive !

Finally put down some roots here, went to work for the City of Phoenix, Parks Department, in 1980 and found the love of mt life in 1981. We have a beautiful daughter, Heidi 24, that just got married herself a year ago last Christmas.

Was able to attend the 10, 15 and 20 year reunions with great delight and was hoping to find info on the upcoming 39 year reunion that is conspicuously absent from the front page. I would love to hear about any plans that might be cooking.

Hi all -

I had a heck of a time find this site. Thanks, Bill, for being there for us. Mike Gannon from Saguaro gave it to me. I've lived in Montrose, California since 1993 - that's on the north end of Glendale, west of Pasadena. Mr. Bruscemi had me pegged, I guess. Senior year he asked us each what we were going to do after Scottsdale High School . I replied that I would probably just work in the family air conditioning business. Bruscemi said: "Don't give me that. You will probably either be a bartender or a minister." Well, I DID work in the family business for another 10 years, then property management for 7 - and THEN became a minister. I had a church in Scottsdale for four years before coming to our denominational headquarters in Los Angeles for an administrative position - Assistant to the Chief Operating Officer. That's United Church of Religious Science - also known as Science of Mind. Yes, it's like Christian Science. No, it's not Scientology. Yes, we go to doctors. No, we don't wear special clothing. Yes, we have churches. No, we don't do chicken feathers. And, of course, there's lots more to tell than that. But those are the basic questions I get. I'm just beginning my 10th year. I love to teach - and preach of course. I conduct trainings for local church Boards of Trustees and their lay ministers.

I've become an old cat woman, with two black males, 3 years old. Brothers John ('67) and Aaron ('71) still live in Phoenix area. Bev Schulte was married to John for 20 or so years, and they recently divorced. She is in north Scottsdale.

I really hope this site gets some publicity. I'd love to find some of the Scottsdale High School buds. Does anyone know how to reach John Bruscemi? Hi, Mr. Reith.

Hi, Bill:
Thanks for directing me to this fine spot. Looking forward to Reunion in October.

(Check out the new web site:  http://www.kipsake.com )

After spending a couple of years at ASU, I moved to Los Angeles where I lived with my oldest sister, Tammy. While there I did puppetry work on a syndicated children's television program. Eventually I got tired of LA, although the beach was great, and moved back to AZ.

Soon I was apprenticed to master sculptor John Waddell up around Cottonwood. I spent a year there learning the art of lost wax bronze casting. Left there and moved back to Scottsdale and got reinvolved with my original love - the theatre. I was assistant stage manager at the Windmill Dinner Theatre. It was while doing a production of "1776" that I met my future wife, Nancy Evers, who was traveling with the show as it's musical director. By the time the show ended, I was hooked on her. I followed her to New York.

We traveled for awhile doing dinner theatre in Denver, Louisville, Dallas and Scottsdale. We got married "on the road" during our day off from "Carousel" in Louisville, KY. With the birth of our second son, Ty, (the first son is Todd) we were still on the road (a year and a half at that point) and decided we needed to settle back down in New York. We've lived in the same apartment on the upper west side for 24 years.

New York is a special and fantastic place. I find it difficult to be anywhere else for any length of time. For several years I worked in television and film production with a small Academy Award-winning production company. About ten years ago I started an antiques business, specializing in antique advertising; turn-of-the-century signs, boxes, posters, tins, trade cards, ephemera, etc. I've also begun a restoration business for antique paper items. I've been trying to build a website for my merchandise and restoration and original artwork, but I am so totally confused at this point that what's up is a disaster (I accidentally published the site when I thought I was just reviewing it!). When it looks like something good, I'll let you know.

I have kept up with my artwork and for several years have created unique hand painted Christmas ornaments and decorations for Bergdorf-Goodman, one of the country's most exclusive stores. I have also created one-of-a-kind dolls that sell at Bergdorf. My wife is a fabulous voice teacher and accompanist who has a busy voice studio, musical directs and is currently appearing on Broadway with Lauren Bacall and Rosemary Harris in NoŽl Coward's "Waiting in the Wings." It's just incredible to sit in the audience and watch her up there with a stage full of famous and terrific actresses!

Well, that's all for now. I look forward to hearing from any old friends out there...And thanks to those of you who have already contacted me. If anyone knows the whereabouts of Alan Bruner I'd appreciate it if you would pass the info along to me. Later, Kip

all that "stuff".
Thanks so much,

Thanks to Donna and Byron Smith for pointing me to the Scottsdale High School web site. Lots of familiar names out there.

After two years at ASU I left Arizona and spent 6 years seeing the world courtesy of the U.S. Navy. Decided a military wasn't for me and spent the next few years moving up and down the state of California. Finally settled down in Thousand Oaks, California with my 6 cats and 2 Golden Retrievers. Thousand Oaks is located mid way between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, about 15 miles inland from Malibu. Been there for around 12 years, my animal herd is down to two cats no dogs.

Been doing software support for a company named Reuters for the past 16 years. It's a 45 mile (one way) commute from hell, but the bug bucks are in L A.

I can be contacted at bobs46@gte.net (home) or bobs@quotron.com (work).

My name is Linda Sherman (Whittemore). I graduated from Scottsdale High School in 1969. My
brother, Ralph Whittemore, also a former Scottsdale High School graduate, located this website
for me. I guess I'm a little late for the 30th reunion, but I would like to
register for any future get-togethers. I was born and raised here in Arizona
and haven't it. After high school I went to NAU. I have been married to a
wonderful man, Tom, since 1976. Tom had six children from a previous
marriage and now we have nine fantastic grandchildren, ranging from two
weeks old to a nine year old.
I welcome hearing from anyone. My email address is

Jan (Winchester) Dooley:

Other then 3 years in California after High School, I've been living in
Scottsdale. I've been working for a title company (same one) for over
23 years now. I have two adult children ages 20 and 24 and am
currently happily unmarried.

I would love to hear from two of my best buds in H.S., Amador Lucero and
George (Link) Taylor.

Just returned from the old Scottsdale High School Campus and from the Hilton Hotel that
occupies most of the 200 area. A plaque was dedicated...kind of... that
mentions, "This is the site of the former Scottsdale High School." The
bronze marker is at the back of the hotel. Although a nice gesture, I
feel it falls far short of really honoring Scottsdale High School. A
historical and cultural institution that graduated so many leaders
deserves far more than a consolation "award" in my humble opinion!
