I attended good old Scottsdale High School and graduated in 1967. Grew up in Scottsdale and went to every grade school that was built until finally they built one close enough to my house that I finally graduated from. By the way it was Navajo. REMEMBER BUS 7? That was a trip. My sister Dixie {1960}, brother Bill{1964} and I were all part of Scottsdale High and the memories. My sister flaked out [Linda] and went to Saberland. My thoughts and memories will always be of the orange and black. If any one wants to e-mail me or any of my family, please feel free to do so, we would love to hear from you. All of us still live in Scottsdale. Do see some of my class mates from time to time so keep in touch.
Sincerely...... Sheryl Goettl class of 1967. Email at either: slot7777777@yahoo.com or shassy@earthlink.com . Thanks and look forward to hear from you.

Dear Bill,
Thanks for your site and taking the time to maintain it. From the high
ground of thirty years experience: I'm now ready to canonize Mr. Planeta. An
old feeb, you say? Made so by the necessary task of instilling order on a
raging cauldron of hormones. This, I think, explains the fascination with
smoke. If you're on fire, there should be something to see. Cliff Cowan
would tip me about the day's chem class:
"Skip it!" He'd say.
"No reactions today."
Off we went to light up a Dodge six cylinder "rebuild" we'd glued
together on an auto shop test stand. Dan was there with his watch. How long
could the engine go if you left the oil pan off?
A great moment in science began with giving the cast iron monster a
healthy drink of high test. Half of the stuff shot back out the carb, frying
the hair off Cliff's hand. One quarter God had reserved for motion: the
crankshaft spun at an unnerving speed. Ah! But the last fraction! A fine,
not orange, but ice blue flame centered itself in the gray (smoke) of over-
rich exhaust.
Nowdays, the car goes to a mechanic.
I remember coaches Hatch, Cady and Mock, and a whole lot of time spent
sinking to the bottom on the swimming team.

I was glad to find this site the other day, nice job. I'm Randy Carlson, I only attended Scottsdale High for two and a half years, from 2nd semester of my sophomore year until graduation. Our family moved from there to Idaho right after I graduated, where I met my wife of 36 years. I haven't attended any of the reunions because nobody knew where I ran to.

The only people I've seen since I left are Mike Cummins, who visited for a week in the summer of 1967 (where is he?) and Dan Downing. I saw Dan at, of all places, an Army induction center for a pre-induction physical in Portland, Oregon in 1970 or 71. He had a full cast on his leg(knee injury) and was playing football for Portland State Univ. I somehow stayed out of the Army after being classified 1-A.

I currnetly work at Intel as a Manufacturing Technician just outside of Portland. I enjoy skiing, which I started at Scottsdale High when I went on a trip to Flagstaff with several others from school. I also like to fish, travel the country when I can, shoot trap and skeet, and read.
Unfortunately I lost my yearbook sometime ago, so names with faces are starting to fade, but I would like to hear from anyone who may remember me and if anyone knows how I can get a hold of a 1967 yearbook, please let me know.

Hello from Bill Darling:
Can't leave here without marking my visit. Thanks all for your stories. Some faces I remember well; others through a mist. Principal Ray Planetta's face I see through the yellow haze of a smoke grenade I'd touched off ; and arced into a trash can in front of the gym. He was moving, and fast! Danny Downing and I were collared before I could even think of shouting "performance art!".
After three decades, I still wonder: where had he been? He'd struck like a viper! We were double-timed down to a sweatty interrogation. A Torquemada he was: and these were not the first sinners he had entertained.
Danny - I never ratted you out!
So it was no pomp and circumstance for those two yeggs. A week later, my mother went in and talked him out of a diploma. The Darlings throughout history have always blazed trails. The path I'd hewed was into the woods of "social promotion".
"But, mom, Your view of life is much clearer, if you aren't looking around a tassel!"
It did not work. She cried anyway.
I worked in a bicycle shop at Scottsdale and Thomas for ten years. Went to Madison Wisconsin and welded,layed cement, worked in various factories.
I live in Los Angeles with my second wife.

My wife sent an e-mail from her office to mine about a cool web site I
needed to look at. Little did I know it would bring back so many memories.
I scrolled through the people finder and found names that I had forgotten
years ago. My family moved to Scottsdale in 1945 and we lived across the
street from the Main building at Scottsdale High School . Some of you from the fifties will
remember me as Billy Roses little brother, actually his uncle. My bothers
Charles and Ken, and sisters, Phyllis and Loretta, graduated from Scottsdale High School
starting in the late 40's with me being the last in 67. In 1959 we moved to
another neighborhood close to Loloma Elementary. Our original house was
eventually torn down to be replaced by the Tastee Freez, (but nobody ever
went there ! ). After Graduation I attended Mesa Comm. College and ended up
at the Phoenix P.D. retiring in 1993 with over 20 years in Police work. Now
I live in Spokane, WA and enjoy the sports of 4 seasons.

I had no idea this Scottsdale High School Alum website was here until I read the news article in The Tribune this morning. It was great reading through all the classmates that have registered, the only bad thing is I lost my year books and so I can't look back at, to put names with faces. Boy, the class of '69 has sure responded.....hopefully, with the article in the newspaper more will jump online when they find out about this web site. I still live here in Scottsdale and own my own business. I did attend the 10 year reunion but unfortunately did not make any of the others. I married a guy from our "arch rival." Arcadia, he was a '66 grad, (should have known better!). We are since divorced, never remarried. I have two children, a son 24 and a daughter 20. Wow, how time flies.....and now we can all find our ol' Alums in Cyberspace!.....who would have thought that in 1967! I still have some momentos a "Beaver Beanie", pep rally button and I even purchased one of the long cabinets from the class rooms before demolition.

I am Diane Lynn (Gates) Moore.  I graduated from Scottsdale High School in 1967 a year
early.  Joined the AF in 1970 hoping to become an air traffic
controller, get out and go to work for the FAA.  I retired in 1990 and
had a wonderful career as a military air traffic controller.  Spent time
in Germany, Florida, Mississipi and Illinois where I retired and live
with my AF retired husband.  Started a second career after retirement
and am in telecommunications for General Dynamics (our unit purchase by
them a year ago from GTE Governement Systems.

I would love to acquire a Scottsdale High School 1967, 1966, 1965 yearbook.  One problem
with a military career is that things to get "lost" as my annuals did
around 1975.

Glad to know some people are still keeping the Beaver spirit alive
although the school is gone.

Hi! My name is Christine (Linton) Sherriff. I attended Scottsdale High my freshman through Junior year and transfered to Saguaro High my last year. I was in Saguaro's first graduating class -- 1967. However, my heart is still with Scottsdale High. It is a shame they destroyed such a historical landmark for $$$. It would be great to see an alumni page for Scottsdale High. I would like to see what some of the "old" classmates are up to now! I saw your input in Arcadia's Alumni Home Page and it brought back lots of memories.

My name is Mark Smallsreed. I graduated from
Scottsdale High School in 1967. I'm interested in
locating other Scottsdale Singers who where in the
chorus or any musicals between the years of '63-'67.
I had many a good time singing and dancing with those
people, but because we were all not in the same class,
I've lost touch with most of them. If any of them/you
are planning on attending this all class reunion, I'd
like to know. Wouldn't it be fun to see each other
again? I'd like to know what happened to you all. I
might even tell you something about me, if you want to
know. No, I didn't make it big or you'd already know
about me. But I did finish college with a degree in
the theatre. I've done some, but not any thing really
professional. I hope to hear from ya'll real soon.

Graduated 1967 with the greatest class EVER. We all still look young and are totally cool. That's because we're Beavers. I think we are all especially funny, too. I can't remember all that I've been doing, can you? I have two sons (Richard, a biologist, and Marc, an ecology grad student), one horse-loving young daughter, and a pretty cute husband. I've worked as a newspaper writer and an editor, and I've kept in touch with all of the Scottsdale High School guys that really mattered -- that being my cousin Kenton Brown, and Richard Parks and Greg Russnak and (in alphabetical order) Steve Verfurth. All four of them are single, and Steve, Greg and Richard are each raising two cute young sons. Steve is a mechanical engineer and lives in Scottsdale, and Nice Girls can get his number from me if they beg. Greg is healthy and happy and living in Alaska, and Richard is moody and handsome and living in the South. Uh, their numbers are even harder to get. (That is, unless they've voluntarily posted them here on the website!) I've left one person out, but they still matter.
When you've gone to Scottsdale High, had some great children, had some neat jobs, and had some great friends, you've had it all.
