I went through the Dental Assisting program at PCC and am very happy I did. I now have been doing oral surgery for 5 years. My baby girl, Callysta was born in November 2000. I am married to a great guy who grew up in Sandy, Oregon who I met through a friend that I met in Dental Assisting. We live in Oregon City - The Rival!!
Coming from a place where everyone went four-wheeling, I missed that greatly. I was thrilled to be able to get Brent Gaston to take me out so we could drive in the mud!!
Mike Gomez West Linn, OR email@example.com
Hi everyone!!! I was married in May of 1998 to a beautiful girl from McMinnville and we currently live in West Linn again near the High School. Oh, to be young and in high school! I can't believe we looked that young back then. Currently, I have decided to return to school to finish my pre req.'s for the Radiography program at PCC. Photography was always my thing in school- now it will be slightly different type of picture taking. Once I get my AA degree, I'll transfer my credits to a 4-year school and finish it out for the BS. Busy, huh?
I really enjoyed the time I could spend in the old photography lab in the "new building." It was a great experience at WLHS and I look forward to seeing you all at the ten year!!!!!
Does anyone remember Chainsaw, Cortez, Wad, Smitty, Yonareth, "e-bra", Bails, or Big Wave Dave? E-mail me if you can identify them...

I graduated with my associate’s degree in general studies. After graduation my husband took a job that brought us to Bremerton WA. We have had 3 more children since then. I love being a stay at home mom. My number one joy in life is my family. My current interests include working on our house, gardening, visiting farmer's markets, running, and listening to NPR to name a few.
Favorite high school memories? Choir trip to Victoria, Canada. Miss Murray's English class. I think of her every time I see a red telephone booth. Journalism class my senior year (translated to lots of Slurpee runs). Outdoor school. Eating lunch in the commons at the "Mormon table." Mr. Level singing "Juan Paco." Mr. Bailey and all his motivational business quotes that always followed with a gum smack and a cheesy grin. Playing volleyball on the "Z" team my freshman year. When I was carrying around the stupid doll for the required family class and my doll's head rolled off the flour sack and on to the floor. I am happy to report that so far, I have not had that happen to any of my kids.

Michael Rudis Portland, OR email@example.com
Most recently I moved back to Portland to be with my significant other and her two children. I had been in Houston, TX on an internship (Lunar Architecture) at NASA's Johnson Space Center until our project was deferred by congress (you gotta love 'em). So I decided to return to my favorite part of the country and begin my career in a more conventional practice of Architecture while I finish a Master's degree in space architecture and extreme environments through the Univ. Houston. What a ride the last few years have been. I still love to get out and hike and now that I'm back in the NW I can't wait to get back up on the Mountain. I try to find time to get into the city and I still enjoy stopping off at the Pied Cow or the Rimsky-Korsakoffee House. Maybe I'll see you there sometime.
Favorite memory: It would have to be the people, and the things we came up with to leave campus....from the theatre to concerts and the model democratic convention to conversations over coffee and exploring the city. One of my most favorite spontaneous experiences was when Beth, April, myself and a couple other's headed down town right after school for the impromptu "Forest Summit Concert". That was a great way to end another ordinary day of classes.
Keep in touch, never hesitate to take a chance and be good humans.
