Occupation: If retired, what was your occupation prior to retirement.
Financial Manager - retired in July, 2018 from Toyota Design Studio after 44 years.
Comments: What have you been up to since you graduated?

After graduating from UCLA, lived in Japan for a year. Settled in So. Calif and have worked at Toyota's design studio in Newport Beach for over 40 years. Still not thinking of retiring!

PS: Retired from Toyota’s design studio in July, 2018, after over 44 years.

School Story: (Have a favorite school story? Funny memory? This can be used for anything you'd like to share.)

During after-school GAA, my favorite sport was playing basketball even though I barely reached 5 feet. (To compensate for that, I used to be pretty aggressive.) One day when I was junior, I was doing my aggressive moves and somehow bounced off someone and ended up, not quite flying through the air, but pretty close! I ended up pulling a tendon on my left middle toe. From that day on, my toe became a rain "predictor." Even to this day, when it's going to rain, I know because my toe lets me know.

What do you do for fun?

Took up running not too long ago and to date have completed 6 marathons and 10 half marathons. Love to travel, read, get together with friends, try out different types of restaurants.

Who was your favorite High School teacher? Why?

Mr. Donald Reasons
Ms. Gayle Frary

What was your favorite class? What was your least favorite class?

Geography - favorite
History - least

What was your favorite event during your years at WUHS?

Can't remember the exact event (Alley Catz?), but a big group of us led by Ms Frary went to Cabrillo Lanes and had a blast bowling. Guess it was memorable to me because I bowled my highest game ever - 177. I've never come close to that since.

Who were your best friends in High School?

Lindy Goon, Judy Hane, Aileen Fujita

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

Judy St. George the most often, and Judy Hane and Lindy Goon Campbell as often as we can and recently with Karen Moresco Busch.

Turning 70, I’d like to share a snippet of my workplace for the last 44 years, Toyota’s design studio. Besides yours truly, you may see another familiar face – David Stollery. Do you remember The Mickey Mouse Club’s “Spin & Marty” in the late 50’s? He played Marty. Dave was our first Chief Designer. Please check out the site below under “Calty Design” (“Calty” was derived from “California Toyota. Being the first car design studio on the West Coast, we had to go incognito the first 5 years.)
