"Lost" Classmates
We need your help locating more classmates to invite to our reunions!
Our "Lost Classmates" Page
lists over 160 people (108+ classmates and 60+ others)
we've "lost track of" certainly since 1994 (many since 1969).
Numerous others were "found" in 2011 thanks to a copy of the
EHS Alumni Directory and in 2014 by the Reunion committee
If you have any news or information to update our class database please
EMail Mark Stotzer:
News of our Classmates
If you (or someone else from "EHS69") have life events you would like to tell us about
We'd like to share it!
Mark Stotzer is mentioned in the Chicago Tribune in late 1993
and in a 2011 letter to the editor of the Monterey Herald
Here is a 1997 article about Commander R. (Richard) Gavin Poston U.S. Navy
Lori Udovich received an award in 2003 for her work at the
Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the SRTM Program
John Pleska received the "Silver Snoopy" award in 2004 from NASA

 Our graduation cermony was held on Monday June 9, 1969

Notes about the official EHS Class of 1969 graduation list received from EHS in May 2000:
The official EHS graduation list shows 768 "traditional" graduates
plus 22 Adult Education and 10 Summer School completions for a total of 800 names.
a Lula Mae Inge
had her name scratched off in pen from the traditional graduate part of the list
after it was typed.
Our EHS "final" roster was actually 767 traditional graduates and 799 total.
Note: I've also added 66 other people that went to school and were in our class
at one time or another but simply did not graduate with us (like Lula Mae above)
Many, if not most, are pictured as being in our class in the 1967-1969 yearbooks with
some also on the MIA list above.
 There are thus a grand total of 865 people in my copy of our class database.
