I graduated from Scottsdale High in 1960. Having earned a B.A. in
theatre arts at ASU and an M.A. in theatre arts from CalState LA, I
worked for 35 years in professional theatre as an
actor/director/producer before retiring after a triple heart bypass. A
Shakespearean scholar and published author, I still direct some Free
Shakespeare Festivals for the fun of it all. I look forward to
information about reunions of the class of 1960.

From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Barbara Flom)
Hey, there, Barbara Bender Flom here on this rainy morning in Miami,
Florida. Thought it would be a great idea to get on the website to see
I really enjoyed reading the E-mail messages. Seeing those names out
there brought back some fond memories.
I left Scottsdale High after my junior year to move to Miami with my
family, so I actually gradated from North Miami Senior High School in
1960. There were 1,118 graduates in that class (talk about being "lost
in the sauce"). That was a tough move for me having gone to school with
most of you since Mr. Crews's 5th grade class at Scottsdale Grammar.
I married my husband, Tom, in 1964 and we have two great kids. Our
daughter, Cindy, is married and lives in Athens, Georgia. She works for
the Univ. of Georgia in the Research Library. She is 33 yrs. old.
Our son, Gary, lives and works in Atlanta. He is 30 yrs. old and is an
Electrical Engineer unmarried as yet but getting closer.
At the time I met Tom, I was working for USF&G Insurance Company. After
Cindy was born, I took a number of years to raise the children, When I
finally returned to work, I was the Office Manager for a thoroughbred
horse farm in Ocala, FL working in the business office here in North
I retired in 1990 when the farm was sold and have been enjoying life.
Tom retired after 28 years with the North Miami Police Dept. in 1991.
His last 8 years with the department he was the Chief of Police.
We've been traveling quite a bit, playing tennis, gourmet cooking, and
I have finally found the time to engage in an activity that I had wanted
to attempt for many years - that being working with stained glass. I
have been doing that for the past 5 years and get a great deal of
satisfaction from it.
As for the reunion in Oct., I regret to say that, due to a prior
commitment, we will be unable to attend. But I would LOVE to hear from
any of you out there. Here is where you can find me:

P.S. Will a directory of our class be printed and offered for sale? I
surely would like to have one. Does anyone know where Beverly McGee
Jarote might be? Saw her last when I came out for the 25 year reunion
in '85 and lost her address long ago.

From: email@example.com (ALEASE A GRAVES)
I am Anne Benyi Graves, class of 60. Spent three years at SHS and ended
up at Arcadia with the first graduating class. Finally found this
website, although a little late. This is Sunday and the reunion is
Friday. I did hear about the reunion a couple of months ago and I do
plan to be there, along with my former sister-in-law, Pat Graves, class
After graduation, I did indeed marry John Graves, also class of 60. We
were divorced two years ago after 37 years, two children, and two
grandchildren. After graduation, he was transferred to LA. We escaped
after a year to Oregon, where we were blessed to raise our kids. They
both went to Thurston High School in Springfield, which may ring a bell
as the school that was shot up a couple of years ago by another student.
Ended up for the last 18 years or so based in St. Petersburg, Florida,
living on sailboats and cruising from Washington, DC, to St. Vincent in
the Caribbean. Quite an adventure. I still sail and race out of a local
sailing club here on the Gulf of Mexico, although I have a condo two
blocks from Tampa Bay.
Am looking forward to seeing all of you. I am terrible with names, but
they swore we would have name tags.

Subj: Hello, Class of '60
Date: 8/22/00 9:42:12 PM Central Daylight Time
From: email@example.com (Glenna)
Hello! You may remember me. I'm the guy who pitched in the majors -
no, that's Jim Palmer. OK, I'm the guy who couldn't spell potato -
wrong again...Quayle. Actually, I'm the guy who still remembers how
gracious and open all of you were to make a move-in from Arkansas feel
welcome. Thanks to each of you.
I have wonderful memories of Scottsdale and the students at SHS. My SHS
experience started with football practice in August. I particularly
recall discovering bullheads the firt time I was tackled on the practice
field. My "Arkansas" reasoning lead me to decide that if it hurts when
I do that, don't do that. So I decided to not get tackled anymore. Do
you remember Ron Fukuchi? Ron came up to about my waist and that's
about where his helmet hit me when he met me at the line of scrimmage -
right on the pubic bone. (ouch!) Prior to that I had a deep, resonant
voice. Practices were tough, games were easy. We had some strong, good
players on our team. Go Beavers!
Glenna and I have been married since college ('64). We have been
blessed in many ways but especially blessed with two children and three
grandchildren. We retired in '95. Glenna was a first grade teacher.
I was an Army Captain (paratrooper, Vietnam, etc.), a college track
coach, a college dean, a Honda car dealer and an intercollegiate
athletics conference commissioner. We now spend a lot of time looking
for antiques, toys, clocks, watches, etc.
I remember the student strike we staged on campus at SHS. What was that
about? Three others and I took a day off from school to hike up
Camelback. Somehow we didn't get in trouble. Scottsdale High was great
because of all of you. The teachers and staff were super also. I feel
honored to have been a part.
Many times I've told people about the great weather in Arizona and
riding to school almost everyday in Carol Hahn's Buick convertible with
the top down. Thanks again, Carol, for all those rides to school.
Rides home (when not in football and track seasons) included my stopping
by Gaintner's to get stomped in ping pong. Gaintner, where are you?
I've taken enough of your time. The web site is a good idea. It is
particularly enjoyable to read about those who have submitted info.

After finishing my accounting degree at ASU, I moved to Michigan to work for
General Motors, and dropped off of the SHS alumni map. After seventeen years in the rust
belt, I gave up on the cold and snow and bleak gray days, and moved to sunny California,
where I continue to enjoy the benign climate in a valley East
of San Francisco. I recognize many names on your excellent WEB page, but, alas,
my yearbook was gleeped while I was in the USAF, so I have no reminders to clear my fuzzy
memories of classmates. In yearbook photos of me, you will see the ugly, thick spectacles
I lived with for some fifty years. But technology caught
up with me and my world class myopia has been lasered away. I could have been a much
better photographer for the newspaper and yearbook had that been available lo those many
years ago. Good luck with the WEB pages, and I hope to hear when a reunion of the class of
1960 is scheduled.

Class of 1960. Judy C. Thomas (Darrow) The years have certainly gone by quickly. It seems
only yesterday we were at our 10 year reunion making the last tour of Scottsdale
Since graduating from SHS and attending college I have taught in the Creighton Elementary
School District. I did take a little time off to be a stay at home Mon until all 3
children were in school.
I've been married for 26 years and have 3 grown children. They have all carried on the
tradition of attending and graduating from a Scottsdale High School.
I'm looking forward to the reunion.

Jerry & I enjoyed attending reunions over the years and often wondered
if we would have enjoyed it as much if we had not been in the same class.
Our last reunion was 2000 -- The All-Class Reunion. We
were glad to be there. Seeing old friends from other classes
as well as our own was the best part; just experiencing again what a great
class and school we had.
We have a great daughter who loves her high school in Concord as much as we love
SHS. She now teaches at her alma mater, and Jerry and I love her school,
too. Christina's school, Mt. Diablo High School, is a historical landmark
and so we know we don't have to worry about it being torn down like SHS was.

FROM CLASSMATES TO SOULMATES
Has it really been 40 years since we walked/ran/sauntered those hallowed halls of
Scottsdale High School? When I first came to SHS in the fall of my freshman year, I
remember Scottsdale having no traffic lights, only stop signs, and Scottsdale Road became
a dirt road just a short distance away.
When I graduated from SHS in 1960, little did I know that it would be my last graduation
for 27 years. In the fall, I went to ASU to pursue a degree in engineering. However, the
degree alluded me. I did end up with a double major - one in fraternity and the other in
rebellion. I excelled in both majors but finally had to leave after a couple of years and
then volunteered for the draft. Yeah, I really did. I knew losing the student deferment
would put me at the top of the list, so rather than wait around to be called, I just
called myself. Did a stint in the Army, including 15 months in Vietnam.
I came back to the U.S. in 1966 and married my high school friend & sweetheart Nancy
Ellstrom (also from the GREAT CLASS of 60) in 1967. We had gone from being classmates to
being soulmates. I think we were one of 7 couples from the GREAT CLASS of 60 who tied the
knot after graduation. Not sure what happened to the others but we have been married for
33 eventful years. We lived in Oakland, Calif. for 8 years then bought a
"starter" house in Concord, Calif. We're still there 24 years later, so it will
probably also be our "finisher" house.
We have a lovely grown daughter, Christina, who decided to buy a house on the street where
we live after spending a number of years in Oregon and Japan. She is a teacher at her alma
mater, Mt Diablo High School. She is a lot like Nancy in looks as well as generosity of
heart and spirit.
Nancy had always wanted to be a nurse and she graduated from Kaiser Foundation School of
Nursing shortly after we were married. You will have to go to her blurb to find out more
Well, back to me. The year after we were married, I had a near fatal bout with cancer
(they told Nancy as she stood their with our baby daughter in her arms that she would be a
widow in 3 months). Fortunately, I have been blessed with living on to spend this time
with Nancy and see our daughter grow up.
I spent quite a few years in the vending industry. You know that nutritional stuff like
cokes, candy, chips, ice cream. Yeah, we even sold cigarettes and cigars in almost every
location back then. Then I decided I did not want to do that for the rest of my life and I
went into insurance and investments. That was quite a switch. I am currently specializing
in long term care insurance. Going into sales has forced me to be more outgoing. Nancy
says now I am more like I was in high school than I ever have been. Is that good or bad?
Oh, by the way. I mentioned that I did not participate in another graduation for 27 years
following our graduation. Well, after underachieving at ASU, I didn't go back to college
until the early 80's. In 1987, my daughter and I both received our AA Degrees from a local
junior college. In 1995, I finally graduated from California State University Hayward with
a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration. Am I proud of finally getting it
even though it took so long? Absolutely. My grade point average at ASU was so low, I don't
think they even recorded it. My cumulative grade point average after I returned to college
was 3.87. If you include ASU, it is 2.99. I owe a lot of the credit to Nancy who kept
encouraging me to finish. O.K., sometimes it was more like a kick in the butt, but she
supported my doing it even though I was working 60 hours a week, taking night classes,
studying at the library and not home very much.
It's been fun being married to a fellow Beaver and being able to share the memories of our
high school days even if we sometimes do not agree on what happened. We are looking
forward to seeing many familiar faces at the October Reunion.

Thank you so much for establishing this web site for us Beavers! I really appreciate what
you have done here as it is the greatest way to bring all of our classmates together no
matter how far away from each other they may live. I was able to attend the individual

Hi! I am one of the 5 White children that graduated from SHS. My brother, Darol,
graduated in l956; Susie in 1958; myself in 1960 and the twins, Arlene and LeRoy in 1961.
Of the five, I am the only one still remaining in the Scottsdale/Paradise Valley area. In
fact, our parents graduated from SHS in the class of '32. Both deceased. My Aunt, Dora
Jolly, graduated in the class of '38.
When SHS was torn down in '92 my youngest son and I took my chevy van to the site and
gathered up as many bricks as possible, along with a concrete cornerstone, a piece of the
wall and the long sign Scottsdale High School. My Aunt Dora paints on the bricks the Old
Main building and on each end she gives pertinent info.about SHS. These bricks have become
a fund raising project for the Scottsdale Historical Society. They sell for $20. $10 goes
to the Society and the other $10 to Dora. They make wonderful memory gifts- If interested
call me (602) 840-8234 or e-mail me at email@example.com.
This is so exciting that Bill has put together this alumni page....thank you, thank
you. The class of of 1960 has been a very close class here. We have had all of the usual
reunions and were planning a cruise Jan. 3l, l999/2000 but it was cancelled because
everything was booked well in advance of 1997. To name a few still very active in the
reunions...Lynn Havighurst, Judy Gieszl Jesman, Milton Jesman, Gary Brennan, Dickey
Davis, Jim Fitzpatrick Beagureau (?), Carol Trapp Keane, Mary Ann Egurrola, Carol Hahn
Barnett, Sue Peterson Westhafer, Michael Kinzle Poplawski, Barbara Bimson Girand, Mike
Girand and many others.
SHS Happenings- Palm Sunday and Cinco de Mayo
Every year we meet at Los Olivos on the Friday or Saturday closest to Cinco de
Mayo for a fun time It is open to any alumni who hears about it..of course, everything
is no host...we would love to see all of you. Another happening, every year for the past
35 is the Old Timer's Reunion held in The El Dorado Park recreation room on Palm
Sunday..I believe it is April 5 this year. Labuella and Lester Mowrey (89 yrs. young)
started this very successful event. Each year new people show up and it is so exciting to
be a part of this.
Remember the days when Scottsdale was quaint and everybody knew their neighbors...well
those days are long gone. In the 40's and early 50's Scottsdale was 1.5 square
miles..today we are 186 square miles with all of the growth to the North. Population is
close to 165,000 yuck. Scottsdale Road used to be a nice straight street going North and
South you should see it now...a garage opening setting right in the middle of North
Scottsdale Rd. and the South a triangleated street that either puts you into a Walgreen's
parking lot, or a sharp left to continue going So. or a sharp right to go Northwest. Oh.
the agony of seeing some terrible planning for our once lovely some town of Scottsdale.
Does anyone remember the trip to Guaymas and Hermosillo with Mrs. Kahl in l958.
Memories, memories.... Can't believe how much fun this is to be a part of a web page and
to Look forward to hearing from others.

I have great memories of Scottsdale High and all my many experiences there, from Mr.
Schweikart and working on the yearbook, to Pom-Pon, dancing in the school musicals,
student council, Mr.. Fitzgerald, Mr.. Kelley, Mr. Hanson and the band trips, friends
(some life long) and the teachers who were kind enough to give my academic career alittle
help. I feel fortunate to still be living in Scottsdale and to have with my husband of 37
years, Jim, who taught at Coronado High School, rise our two children there. We have two
adorable grandsons, the apple of our eyes, and another grandchild on the way.
I have been selling real estate for 16 years. It's a great job for women, I really enjoy
helping people find their "home". If any of you Beavers or your friends have any
questions about the valley Real Estate Market I will be happy to be of help. I have been
working on the Beaver Bash 2000 and have enjoyed making some new friends, it is going to
be a wonderful weekend, I hope everyone will be able to attend. Mark October 6,7,8 on your

What a wonderful website this is! Thanks so much Bill Farrell for doing this.
My maiden name was Terry Miller and is now Teri Brown. I was a bit wild in
those days, but have tamed down considerably with age. *grin*
During my 4 years at SHS I was in the Chansonettes, on the newspaper staff,
the yearbook staff in my senior year, danced in all the musical school
plays and had a lead role opposite Claire in "12 angry women." I was the
bad juror. *smile* These days I am a retired Paralegal, a country music
Fan Club President, a webmaster, and live in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I sure do miss the bobby sox and poodle skirts of that era. I think we had
the best teen years and music EVER!!
I would love to find Gaylene Muller and Judy McCarty.
The three of us
chased around all thru high school and I haven't a clue what their last
names would be now. Anyone knowing their names or whereabouts, let me
know. I'd sure appreciate it. :o) Also, Katheleen "Ginger" Warner,
Michele Segedy, Kay ?, Carla Padovani...
Remember Mr. Schultz? He was the coolest teacher I had at SHS. I also

After my beaver years, I floated around various colleges until UncleSam caught up with me

Washington DC area to work for the FBI. From there to Birmingham, Alabama, Anniston,
Alabama, Boston and Philadelphia area before ending up in the Kansas City area. I own my

Thank you Bill for a fun site. Charlene Pearce Peterson here, living in
Pt. Penasco, Sonora, Mx. Finding this site was like visiting
Scottsdale. It will be fun to watch it grow. Sure brings back good
memories. Pom Pon, choir, yearbook, musicals and our fun bus trips
around rural Arizona singing with Mr. Eisle, and the trip to be in band
day at SC with our first stop at Disney Land. We sure had a simple,
more enjoyable time in High School than some of the kids have nowadays.
GO BEAVERS! firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Bill, This is great that you are keeping this up. Mary Jo Willis '60',
Ruth Mary Palmer '60' and Sara Rea '61' visited down here in Rocky Point
and we had so much fun that it reminded me to check this site again. Would
you please change the email address for Charlene Pearce Peterson to email@example.com.
I've found when I do meet fellow SHS friends, we seem to go back to where
we left off. So easy to talk to them and, I guess, we do still have a lot
in common. Thank you so much, Charlene

Hi to all the SHS Beavers from the class of 1960.
My name at graduation was Dorothy (Dottie) Reynolds. To many in the class I
was known as "the quietest girl in class". Is there anyone out there from
"Club 6" physics class? We did have some good times in class with Mr.
My name now is Dottie Fields-Jones. I was married to my first husband for
28 years and have 2 grown sons. They have given me 6 great grandchildren.
I remarried in 1997 to a great man and now have added 3 step grandchildren.
I work at Microsemi (Formerly Siemens Corp, formerly Dickson Electronics)

I'm planning on attending the 2000 Reunion. Thanks to everyone who
helped organize it! Looking forward to seeing friends from the class of
Here's my contact information:
1676 Braddock Court
San Jose, CA 95125
I've been living in San Jose and working for computer companies in
Silicon Valley for the last 8 years -- mostly as a producer of
international training broadcasts. I've been at Sun Microsystems for
the last 4 years on a long-term contract. I have the fun of working
with good friends from the video production community -- many of us
worked together at AppleTV.
Although it's true the area is really congested...there are lots of
interesting things to do. I'm involved with local film festivals, art
museums, book discussion groups, a wonderful meditation center, etc.
And I'm a half-hour from the ocean in Santa Cruz!
My sister, Pat "Riley" Miller, lives north of San Francisco in Marin
Her daughter, Vanessa, just graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in
Architecture. And as her Aunt, it's been fun to see her grow up. She's
a delightful young woman.
I spend most holidays in Scottsdale visiting Arizona relatives and their
families: My brother Frank his wife Nancy (Bennison) and their two
boys, and my sister Kathy Riley Brown and her husband Laird. My brother
Scott works in both California and Arizona. I also see my cousins and
their extended family: Tim, Terry and Kevin Riley. My mother is just
getting back from a trip to Paris and is in wonderful health I'm happy
Once again, looking forward to the Reunion!

My name is Tom Roth. I graduated in '60 and was one of the class cartoonists along with
the Kersten Brothers, with whom I have stayed in touch all these years.
I've been working quite happily for almost 30 years in the animation business in L.A.,
London, New York and Dublin. Most recently, I worked for Disney for a few years which was
very enjoyable. 3 years ago, I switched over to computer animation and never looked back.
I maintain a residence here in Scottsdale (currently being remodeled) and try to get back
here every chance I get. I'd love to hear from some fellow Beavers...especially those in
the art classes and in the Beaver Band.

Hi, my name is Lana Moody--was Lana Sapp in high school. Would love to
register -- I was so excited when I discovered this site. I have two
sisters and a brother who graduated from SHS--Lora (Sapp) Sorrells who
lives here in Garland about a mile from me--class of '62, Lisa (Sapp)
Hawley, class of '72 who lives in Mesa and Gary Sapp, class of '70, who
lives in Ft. Collins, CO.
I taught school in California the first year out of ASU (graduated
1964), and then met my husband, Al who was from Texas and moved to the
Amarillo area in 1966 and have been in Texas since then. We now live in
Garland, which is a suburb of Dallas. We have two sons (ages 31 and 29)
who are both married to wonderful girls and they live in the Dallas
area--no grandchildren yet--but hoping!
Up until 6 months ago, our home that we lived in while in high school
was still our "home", however, we sold it last year after Mom passed
away. She and Dad had lived there for 42 years, so has been hard on all
of us knowing the home is not ours to go to anymore. Still miss
Arizona, specifically Scottsdale. Is sad to me when I come out for
visits and drive by our old high school site and see it no more--wish at
least the original building could have been saved--remember the day we
moved to Arizona from Oklahoma in 1956 and registered for high school
and visited with Mr. Tripp. Have some great and wonderful memories of
my time there.
Would love to hear from any '60 graduates or any graduates for that
matter. We don't have a computer at home but my email address at work
is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I am an executive assistant in the
International Department of the home office for JCPenney, Co. Inc.

Well hello everyone. It certainly has been a long time since I have heard the class bell.
I remember the good times we had and the trips to the Sugar Bowl. As has been mentioned by
many, it is sad to go by and not see the school any longer. I do have a brick which I keep
on my office shelf.
I am married with three children and five grand children now. I will have to admit, it is
tremendous fun to have the grand children over and then be able to send them home.
I hope to be at the reunion as I look forward to seeing some very good friends. I am still
in the restaurant business as a Consultant and travel three states presently. I guess I
owe it all to working at the Sugar Bowl. Jerry Huvell will know what I mean.
It is really amazing when you think back to 1960 and how time has gone by so fast. Seems
just like yesterday when I was getting ready for the Prom. Had a date with Penny
Money====very nice lady.
Well, feel free to contact me via e-mail and let me know how everyone is.
Take care and hope to see you in October.

My name is Diane Skarecky Baxter. I graduated from SHS in 1960. How
can I get on this website?
I just found out about this website from Nancy Ellstrom Huvelle many years after it's beginnings. I'm sorry it hasn't been updated more frequently.
Anyway if anybody still goes to this website, I'm Sally Steadman McGerty. I started at S'dale in Oct. 1958 (transfer from Michigan) and graduated in 1960. Probably my fondest memories of my teenage years were of my Jr. and Sr. year. Only two years there, yet I could write a book about those carefree years. My two favorite people of those days: Nancy Ellstrom Huvelle and Bart Del Duca, who hold a very special place in my heart to this day.
Life has been good to me, but I won't bore you with details. I'm living in Prescott now and LOVE it here. If anyone wants to contact me my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.

How exciting to find out about the reunion and the website. I had such
fun reading all of the letters from alumni. There doesn't seem to be
much from the class of '60. I sent the address to all of the people
that I am still in contact with.
I'm Donys (Stone) Powell, class of '60. Please put me on the list to
get an invitation to the reunion. Is our class doing anything special
since it's our 40th?
I graduated from ASU in Medical Technology and did my internship at St.
Joseph's in Phoenix. After graduation, I married Dewey Weingartner
(class of '60 also) and moved back to my home town of San Francisco so
that he could attend the California Podiatry College. We divorced in '69
and I continued to work as a Medical Technologist in the Clinical
Laboratory at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF).
In the years of singledom, I traveled extensively and skiied all over
the country and in France, Austria and Canada. San Francisco was a
great place to be single in the 70ties. Lots of fun and wonderful
people. Never a dull moment.
I remarried in '81 to Bob Powell, a native San Franciscan and graduate
of UC Berkeley. We live in beautiful Larkspur, about 15 miles north of
San Francisco in Marin County. Yes, that's where the peacock feathers
and hot tubs are. We love living in the redwood forest with all it's
majestic beauty and wild animals. I have a stepson (32) and a
I recently retired from UCSF, after 34 years, the last 15 as the Chief
Technologist of the Chemistry Department in the Clinical Lab. I love
Haven't been back to Scottsdale much in the last 35 years, but when I
have I am disappointed at the growth and change. Certainly not the
sleepy little town we graduated from.
I saw Gene Hansen's (band teacher) photo from the '59 reunion photos.
Where are you and how can I reach you? I also found Ron Zeleny ('60)

Just found this website, sorry I missed the October bash. I'm retired from the FAA, and
currently live in Pinetop, Arizona. I have three beautiful daughters, all living in Mesa.
I miss The Band! I played sax in the USAF from 62-66. but not much since. Also learned to
fly and still have my pilot's license. I have even owned a few airplanes over the years
when finances (and wives) permitted. My older brother, John Valentine (SHS '56, trumpet
player) has also retired here in the mountains.

It should be fun to get together with old friends. I am looking forward to it. The last
reunion (that I was invited to) was the mini cruise to Catalina and Ensenada circa
1990. I vividly remember Dave McKee festooned with streamers dancing on the
deck as we steamed out of Long Beach harbor. It was a beautiful sight--music
playing, a gorgeous sunset, and Tom Fry moving in to throw McKee overboard. I
just can't remember how it ended .I do remember Henry Register chaining himself to
the mast but that might have been a different trip...
As for myself, since helping Al Gore invent the internet I have pretty much dropped
out of the public service arena and in fact I now shun the spotlight completely
preferring to hang out on my back porch most afternoons thinking about the good
old days at SHS and killing flies with my fly gun. If you haven't discovered
fly guns let me tell you--they are fun. (they work for cockroaches too)
There are a lot of people missing on the list. It would be great to have everyone check
in. I enjoy hearing what "the old gang" is doing.
