Mark Arvizu In Seattle now opening up a new office inside the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group in Renton, WA. Relocating from Denver was a bite as we'd been there for 10 yrs and loved the weather, schools and skiing. Our 4th child was a surprise about six months into my ExecMBA program. Our oldest is 11 and already a drama queen driving her one brother and parents nuts - Mark

Sylvia Assalit Time has sure flown by. I can't believe we are approaching our 20 year reunion! After highschool I went to El Camino and got my Bachelor's in Business at CSUDH.

For the past 9 years, I have been working for a Commercial Aircraft Leasing Company in Century City. I work in the Finance Department and enjoy my job. I still frequent places where I run into people from highschool. I still can't believe how these years have flown by. If you want to keep in touch, e-mail me :) 2003-06-17

Ugh, I had to finish out my senior year at Hawthorne High School, BOO, lol. I still consider myself an alumni of South High due to the fact that I was so damned close to graduating from there, so not fair. Anyhow, I just happened upon this site from and was surprised to see that it had, in fact, been 20 years! Holy Cow I just can't believe it! I am glad to see a lot of you are getting along well and that you are happy and healthy! It was nice to remember the good old days and the 'not so' good old days, ha! Take care to everybody!

Julie Kaneyuki

Clay Keck Clayton passed away in November 2009.

Martha Kelly After high school I went to college for seven years and didn't graduate with a degree in English. Then right before I turned 30 I started doing stand-up comedy. A year and a half later I moved to Austin, Texas for almost four years and had a really good time doing comedy and drinking a lot. While I lived there I got to do a couple of comedy festivals and stand-up spots on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Premium Blend, and the poorly conceived Last Comic Standing. Then I moved back to L.A., quit drinking, and moved back in with my parents, where I still live. I just did stand-up on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson a month ago, but can't quit my day job as a copywriter yet. Not to brag, but I have a really cute dog. Hope everyone is doing well. The end.

Joan Kelly Hey former classmates, I went to college for a long time after high school, switching majors from English to Biology, ending up at UC Santa Cruz (they did turn me into a bit of a hippie temporarily, but I never could seem to let up on the daily showering thing), and then quitting that program when I was close to finishing. I moved back to L.A. a couple of years later and have lived here ever since (near the Hollywood Bowl), and actually went back to finish my B.A. just for the hell of it at Antioch University, graduated this past June (2005). I am a writer now, and also 60% crazy cat lady (have 3). My first book (nonfiction) is scheduled for release on Valentine's Day, 2006. No husband or wife, no kids, but can't wait to see pictures of all of yours at the 20 year reunion.

Stephen Kemp Hey all, hope everyone is doing well since we got out of South? I spent 4 yrs in the USMC after I graduated. And since then I have worked for the same company here in Torrance for the last 10 years, mainly doing support for a Tax Software Program. If any group things are taking place when ever send me an email. Or just one to say hi.

Ken Love Hey Ex-South Highers! Hope you're all doing well since leaving the ol' Green and White. Long Live The Lizard King if you remember that one. ;) Been living out here in Irvine, CA now for the past 9-10 years or so. Did a brief stint up in San Francisco, and what a stint that was. Been by South a few months ago, brings back so many cool memories. Some awkward one's too though. I make video games for Activision up in Santa Monica. Been making games for the last 7-8 years. Loads-O-Fun. Hope everyone from the Class Of '86 is doing well. Drop a line and say "Hi!" if you remember me. I'll come up and see you sometime. Hang Tight!

Lisa Martin Aloha from beautiful Hawaii where I have lived for the past 10 years. After graduating from the University of California, Irvine with a BA in Economics and a BS in Biology, I left sunny California to get my Masters in Sports Management at THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY. GO BUCKS!!! Nothing compares with OSU football - While there I taught adapted skiing... this proved to be the foundation that I have built my career on. After graduating I lived in SD for a bit before moving to Hawaii. I've been a personal trainer specializing with seniors and people with disabilities or injuries (post rehab) for over 10 years and love it - it's so very rewarding! I also competitively paddle Outrigger Canoe and have traveled around the world for some of my races. What an honor it is to paddle against some of the best athletes in the world. So sorry to have missed you all at the reunion, it happened to fall of one of the best races of the season. I hope you all are happy and well and enjoying life. ALOHA

I've been married twice, divorced twice and I do not have any children.

Hope to see you at the graduation!

I have been married for 12 years and have two kids - Amy-11 and Jake-9. We live in the South High neighborhood, so the kids will be 3rd generation Spartans.

Hayley (Mitchell) Haugen Hi Spartans! I look forward to seeing you all in August. After our 10 year reunion, I spent a few years teaching English and Creative Writing as an adjunct instructor at CSU, Long Beach and San Diego and at various other universities along the 405. I decided to go back to school in 2001 and ended up at Ohio University in rural southeastern Ohio. I have just completed my PhD in American Literature and hope to land a "real" job when I go out on the national market in the fall. My husband, David, is a freelance editor and author, and our little boy, Jack, just turned three. Does anyone know where Stacey Elliot is? She attended South High briefly our freshman year, moved to Texas, then back to CA, but I haven't heard from her since 1993. Please let me know if you know her -- thanks.

Oh also, I never got to thank Mr. Stansbury. So there, I did it.

Some things never change. hehehe..If you want to shoot me an email: I also run my own design biz - H Bomb Design. I wont be at the reunion because Ill be in Kauai..but feel free to email! Cheers.. Heather

This year we started a successful general contracting company and we are extremely busy. I am the proud mother of a 15 year old daughter who is a JV cheerleader this year and an 8 year old son who excels in baseball.I can't wait for the 20 year reunion to get caught up with many of you.

Erik Wendt Hello all. Still single and living in the South bay in Hermosa beach. Grduated from CSULB with a degree in Political Science. I am working as an operations manager for APM Terminals at the Port of Los Angeles (Pier 400). I am still friends with many of the same guys that were friends in high school.

Susan (White) Rademacher Hi everybody! It took me 14 years but I finally got my BA in History and Education from Roosevelt University in Chicago. My husband convinced me to give up the good weather and move to the midwest in 1993. We've been married for 14 years and we have 3 kids. Robert is 14 and just started high school. He's my jock. Bill is 12 and will be in high school next year. He's my tech and music guy. Kelly is 7 and the cheerleading-baseball-playing princess of the house. I teach World History and Geography to students with learning disbilities at Round Lake High School near the Wisconsin border but I hoof it every day from the Chicago suburbs. For those of you who want a good laugh, I coach 7 and 8 year-olds cheerleading. Drop me a line some time.

Dave Whittaker Hey all. Its been 5 years since I have updated. I have left the animal industry forever thank God. I am now working in networking. My wife Dena (Ziegler class of 87) and our 2 kids relocated to Charleston SC. It is just like California except there are no Californians here. I would love to here from some of you.

Randee (Willis) Alessi I am currently living in Walteria. I went to USC and married a great guy who's only flaw is that he went to UCLA. I am currently working in General and Cosemetic Dermatology in Torrance. I love my job. I am still in touch with most of my friends from SHS.

Bill Zepeda How time flies! It seems like yesterday I was sitting in the mall with the gang having lunch (when Steve and I weren't ditching anyway)! I enlisted in the Navy 19 years ago and recently transfered to Las Vegas as the Command Senior Chief at the Reserve Center on Nellis Air Force Base, (I didn't know Vegas had a Navy either.) I have a 12 year old son Billy Jr, who is definitely my best accomplishment in life! I look forward to seeing everyone at the reunion. Drop me a line if you get the chance.

Jeff Zumwalt It's great to see what everyone's been up to over the past 20 years or so. I graduated from UCLA in '91 and started working in El Segundo. A few years later I married another SHS grad, Lorri Morrison ('85). She had two boys when we were married and we've had three girls since then in '95, '96, and '98. We moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2003 after a couple of years in Arizona. I work for the University of New Mexico and Lorri sells real estate. We spend a lot of time doing "family activities" such as sports, church, and traveling. We went to Lorri's 20 year reunion last summer and it was a really good time. Looking forward to seeing everyone at ours.
