Buai Tut (2005)

My fellow colts,

My name is Buai Tut and I am a graduate of Crawford High School class of 2005. I transferred to CHS because my siblings attended there and wanted to make it a huge part of my life. During my studies at CHS I was involved in multiple activities JROTC where I learned discipline, respect, and commitment to help others. I was also the Brigade J4 as well as Battalion Commander. I also played sports mainly basketball and we captured multiple league championships with a CIF banner the following year. Reading all of your memories has inspired me to reach out to the community surrounding CHS. The students, their families, campus staff to make CHS a great place to learn. We all know time has changed and so is the culture around us, but Crawford High will always be there as a stepping stone to go further in life. I am asking you one by one to let's all chip in attend one of the games or some athletic events support your alma mater.

I agree with all the other responses, the staff did a wonderful job.  We must remember to thank Charlene's little sister Sandy for her participation, as well as her husband Bob Weaver.

Thanks again for a nice time!

The class of 64 50th reunion was my first, enjoyed it, talking to some of my class mates was enjoyable. I wasn't around San diego much after high school and SDSC. Was in the Navy for 28 years with a whole lot of traveling then to the Middle East for 8 years. I'm looking forward to the reunion CD, if it ever comes. My wife of 46 years enjoyed the reunion too, even though she was a Clairemont High grad from the days of fast times at Ridgemont High. Clarke Young

Randall William Sandberg (1969)

It's nice to remember the good ol' days when many of us were able to find jobs during or after our high school years, so I decided to chime in.

I attended a lot of summer school when in junior high so I was ahead of the game with credits by the time our junior year came around. I started a job during the summer before junior year at Monte Vista Retirement Lodge on Massachusetts Ave. in Lemon Grove. During our junior and senior years I only needed to be at school until noon; in the afternoons I worked 1 to 5 pm Monday through Friday. Also alternated 8 hours on Saturday and Sunday with my cohort Bob, a student from Monte Vista High in Spring Valley. We were maintenance assistants who took care of pretty much everything imaginable from janitorial work to helping the gardener on the 5-acre property. $1.65 per hour, 28 hours per week. My wallet was never empty.

It was a good experience. We learned lots of things that were later useful after starting to live in our own homes. Shortly after graduation day I moved on to the service department at University Ford in Mission Valley. Pay jump to $1.75 per hour. Yesssss!! I am not alone in lamenting that few of the young people today are able to find such opportunities to get work experience and start on a solid track towards the future. Sadly our political "leaders" have seen fit to export too many jobs in the name of "free trade" and otherwise have allowed the country to be overrun by outsiders that have taken many of the same kinds of jobs that we had.

Sylvia Wicke (Ryerson) (1968)

My first job, other than babysitting, was at Winchells Donut Shop on 40th and Meade in San Diego. I worked at a few different ones before I began working at Home of Guiding Hands in 1970.

Michael Alan Carteron (1983)

My first real job was at the San Diego Zoo washing dishes in the Golden Eagle restaurant. I say real job because before that I delivered papers in the morning for the SD Union. It is good to look back and see how far we have come and what we have accomplished. It also points out how plentiful jobs were when we were younger.

Linda Lee (Mann) Urmacher Class of 1967

My first work experience was in High School, employed by Sea World in the Hawaiian Punch Building. I prepared salads and processed lettuce and tomatoes and I worked at the counter.  It was a great job.  Ultimately, I attended San Diego State University and UCSD, and worked at Scripps and UCSD School of Medicine in administration.  I then moved on to New York City where I held positions at Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and The Dalton School. I have lived in New York since 1975, having been married for 32 years, and we have a son born in New York, living in Brooklyn.  I always remember my days at Crawford and my first job.

Alan Scott Fedder (1969)

My first "job" was substituting newspaperboy delivering the San Diego Union for Ron Oldenettel, then I got my own route on his recommendation. This was in junior high.  I delivered those papers every morning (pretty much) for maybe three years.  In 12th grade I worked for my dad cleaning construction sites on the weekend, getting an actual paycheck. Lost some weight and put on a little muscle, showing how out of shape I was before! After high school I worked at Ets Hokin & Galvan as an Eletrician's Helper helping to make waveguide.  That job only lasted a couple of weeks, then the contract was completed.  While going to Grossmont College I worked a couple weeks as night cleaner assisting the owner of a jantorial business. He let me go for being not quick enough. Next I got a job in the Grossmont College Library.  I loved that job, shelving and checking out books! After my first year of junior college I joined the military.

My first job was working for Warren Thompson of San Diego Appliance in Hill Crest working for 75 cents an hr.  Most of you guys remember his commercial on TV.  He was every where night and day.  That was a wonderful experience, nobody could have ask for a better boss.

Wow! We must all be busy with life.....nothing posted here in almost 2 years! Hope everyone is doing o.k. and growing old gracefully. My rating in that area is about a 6! : (
Other than the fact that it's a lot of work for our reunion committee, who are beyond phenominal, what happened to the idea of a 70th birthday party?? Perhaps even an informal picnic at the beach or a park (or Terri Hunter's house LOL ;) if there was enough interest! God bless you all and keep on keeping on!

On my way to Sacramento to pick up husband who has been at Spacefest in AZ.

Yep, life pretty much getting in the way lately.  And I don't care for it at all.  Mind stuck in the 60s and not accepting this latest stage gracefully.  My 93-year-old mother (still living in same house we grew up in) is young, vibrant, and totally independent.  Exercise classes at Joan Kroc twice a week for more than 10 years!  Every day of her calendar is full of meetings, spa days, lunches, church functions, etc.  My 'little' sisters and I (Barbara Eskew McClellan '67 and Melanie Eskew (Paul) Fillmore '71) just watch her as she speeds past us!
