Met and married my husband over 11 years ago. I have been teaching at Woodburn HS for 9 years. I have 2 beautiful kids Brady (4) and Delaney (2). Haven't coached in a few years, just waiting for the kids to get old enough to start coaching them. I think I have a natural baseball player on my hands!Favorite memory: Loved playing volleyball and softball, hanging out with friends and all the crazy things high school kids did in the '80s. I am proud to be a product of the 80s!Bill Boozier Longview, TX firstname.lastname@example.orgBuyer/Planner for General DynamicsMarried in 1993 -First daughter born in 1998 -Second daughter born in 2009 -Living in Texas since 2002Favorite memory: Spending hours in the photo lab -Milkshakes from the snack bar -Driving my '64 NovaMichele (Chambers) Rhoustsong San Giovanni Di Polceingo, ItalyProgram Coordinator for the University of PhoenixDue to my life back then, I graduated somewhere else.

Daytime manager and bartenderShannon (Cook) Garver Thornton, ColoradoInterior DecoratorRichard Craghead II Tualatin, ORSelf employed / WLHS CustodianI'm now working back at West Linn High School as well as running my own cleaning company. After many years at U.P.S. I have chosen to take a leap of faith and get out of a bad place to work. I'm a much happier person and have finally found someone to spend the rest of my life with. We plan to get married 7/8/06.Favorite memory: The thing I remember the most are all the hours I spent working on all the plays the school put on. We all had a great time in that old theater. Working at WLHS now helps bring back all the good times I had there. It is sad though, there is very little that is left of the old school.Anything else to share: There are still a few of the old staff here. Barb Murray, Clark Hoss, Ward Lewis just to name a few.Angela (Crawford) Bierman Oregon City, OREDI AnalystI have twin boys that are 20. I have had the same job for over 10 years and have been married for 17.Favorite memory: I didn't socialize enough or create enough memories.I own two English Bulldogs!Greg Crosby Salem, ORSteve Delano Vancouver, WAChemical engineer / lab techWell, it's been a long time since HS. Started out getting married at the age of 23, I have three beautiful kids, Taylor 19, Trevor 16, and Tanner 11. Wasn't really sure what I was going to do after HS. Went to college for a few years, then started working at Intel as a chemical engineer. Left Intel and started working for a company in Portland as a hazmat driver for four years. Now I'm working as a chemical engineer, lab tech for a company in Hillsboro. I can't believe I ended up working with chemicals and in a lab, not what I had planned to do, but love it. I still throw the baseball around a little, love the sport of baseball still.Favorite memory: I have a lot of memories of HS, actually to many to write down. I guess it would have to be playing baseball and football and hanging out after the games with friend at the 7-Eleven and Round Table pizza.Candice Dethlefs-Poling Oregon City, OREnjoying life with great friends and family!Channon Dryden Redondo Beach, CAMatt Germany firstname.lastname@example.orgBusiness consultantHi West Linn - I actually haven't graduated from WLHS, but was an exchange student 86/87 attending junior year. Please feel free to post my photo from the yearbook 86/87. My best regards, especially to the staff members who are still around since then - MattFavorite memory: Coach Ogan's comments how English grammar helped me to perform on the parallel bars in gymnastics class still works today: Thinking "I don't want to hit the bars!" made me actually hit them. The last fragment of this thought is "... hit the bars!" - and so I did. Coach Ogan's advice consequently was to turn this thought into an effectively positive phrase like "I'll swing through the bars." This has been a very useful key technique ever after. Not only in sports, but in any given situation.Michelle Elliott Molalla, ORBookkeeper & Payroll SpecialistRandall Fish DC Milwaukie, ORDoctor of ChiropracticMoved back to Oregon in Nov. 04. ( live across the street from Nuttbrock in Milwaukie.) My wife Lori and I now have two kids, one dog and three practices around Portland.

Nothing can replace the noise we made that night.Memories of high school have become very important to me. I can't believe how much I missed out because of my stupidity. I never took school seriously, just ask Dr. Hunt!
