Well, my friends and I have named the ranch WWR (Wild Woman Ranch) Still playing music and running jam sessions about once a month at the ranch....y'all come now!!!! Also moved my office to the east side of West Palm Beach.

It is with great pride that I remember the years at PBHS. I was married and divorced, no children (just cats). I'm living in my childhood home. Over the years I have been lucky enough to meet up with several classmates. I had the pleasure to work with another of our "clan", Nancy McElroy, at Ramblewood Elementary School. It certainly is a very small world.

I'm thankful to have reunited with my best friend from PBSHS recently, Joe Robert's. Sure would like to run into other's I went to school with @ the greatest place on earth.

As for myself I'm currently retired. I left Southern California Edison (SCE) after working as a journeymen lineman for over 28 year's. I moved out of Huntington Beach, Ca and moved to Hendersonville, NC after I retired to help my parents in their time of need in their golden years.

My wife and I are moving back to Florida this Feb. Together we have four son's and five wonderful grandkids.

We thank God each day for the blessings given us in this life and look forward to being of service to other's God allows us to bless.

My God bless each of you and God bless all the teacher's that have teached at PBSHS as well as other schools too.

I look forward to attending a class reunion, so if anyone knows of one coming up please feel free to email me.

It's crazy to see how much the school has changed in the two short years that I've been gone.

The ridiculous tardy/absence policy came into effect my senior year, and I see it's even more strict now. I can't believe some of the best teachers are gone: Sesti, Barak (Turek), DAVIS, etc.

It's crazy how much has changed since we've graduated. You go from seeing the same faces every day to seeing them very seldomly...if ever again at all.

Hope everyone is doing well. Get out there and make something of your lives!!

I miss the random brawls with the seniors during our freshman year, the petty drama that some people STILL WON'T LET GO lol, and of course my lucrative CD business lol. I graduated from The University of Central Florida in 2008 with a B.S.B.A in Management Information Systems, a minor concentration in Accounting and an Enterprise Resource Planning Certificate. I am currently pursuing an M.B.A. with a minor concentration in Technology Ventures... Anyone that knew me at Pompano knows that I am doing exactly what I was born to do lol.

So glad to see PBHS is alive and doing well -makes me proud! I was in Orchestra with Doc for 3 of those 4 years, and I think we had the best group ever.

I'm an R.N., working in the AIDS research field. I've been in NC since 1980, but I've got sand in my shoes and plan on retiring in Florida someday. I have 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters - there's nothing better than being "Grama".

Please keep me on the list for the next reunion. Granddaughter was very ill and receiving chemo during our 30th, so I missed it. But she's doing well now, and I'd love to see everyone again!

I was friends with Harvey Sheller '82 and Randy Randolph '83 who lived on the same street as me. I too was a member of the 'Shade Brigade' for a little while anyway. Moved to Ohio after freshman year. I remember Jeff Deegan and Se Chuk O from the soccer team and Tevvy Washington from football and elementary school. Soccer coach was 'Dash Lippert' who was a really good coach. My sister Alison '80 and brother Douglas '79 went to PBHS as well. I would love to find/buy a yearbook from 81/82 if anyone can help-please email. Great times and people-too many to mention-at PBHS!

On behalf of myself & Jarvous Freeman i'd like to apologize for ruining the OJT class, 4 semesters of OJT & no job & still got an A. Dont ask me how it was done but hey I graduated. It's a lot of stuff that changed after 2002 that me & sum other faculty & former students were involved in. Some of the change was for good & some was good for faculty & not students, either way I proud to say I graduated from P-NO. I have a college degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Urban Management & Economic Development a good job with the Florida Department Of Revenue, at least for the economy that we live in. And in May my little girl will be born. All in all I will never forget my High School or college experiences. That FAMU trip back in '02 was off the chain to.

After that I fell in love and moved to Berlin where I now live with my partner and I survive teaching English as a foreign language. I hope to be at a reunion one day.

  I have many PBHS friends that I am still in contact with after almost 50 years. However, I have one good friend that I have lost contact with and would love to hear from....Diane Anderson. Please, Diane if you read me.

  I thank God for allowing me to grow up in a town like Pompano where I have made wonderful, life long friends.

Good as I feel lack of the PBHS. Almost one year intense of good moments in the school, and also curious because, when I arrived was all different one of where it had come, plus this school she is not wonderful, received me well super, it helped in that I needed me. Mr. Frey, Mr. Marchand, Mr. Facteau, Mrs. Hill, are as many people that everything would not fit here. I cannot forget them friends who I made, the soccer that I played for the school that provided excellent moments to me. Homesicknesses this is the word that is in my heart until today, of the good moments that I had in this school. I wait one day to come back in briefing to be able to review my great friends who I made for there. PBHS always will be in my heart.
I love u PBHS

It was a great time then - Beanpickers to Golden Tornadoes - too bad the kids today don't get to have the things we had back then in Pompano. It was a great place to grow up in. I have had a phenomenal life and have two fantastic girls 19 and 16 - I calmed down later than most. It is great to see some of the posts of friends and acquaintances from the 'good ole days'. Be well.

Now I'm a doting grandfather with 2 5 year old princesses who go into kindergarten next month. In my spare time, I run a public relations company and for fun play tennis and travel to great and exciting places. I do miss the gang from years back, especially my former baseball teammates.

So happy to find this site!
I was born in Key West, but grew up and attended public school in Pompano. Attended Broward C.C., got a B.A. at U. of S. FL, Tampa. I continued with my education and got a Master's in Romance Languages at UNC Chapel Hill in 1967.
My list of careers in chron order: college professor, social worker, business owner, and the last one - complex litigation paralegal. All of these careers began and ended in Seattle. I took a break from grad school (Ph.D.) at U. of Kentucky in '68 and went out to Seattle to teach for one year. I never left! Hooked on skiing, sailing, hiking, etc. Love the Pacific NW. Due to health reasons, I finally had to leave Seattle and come home.
Ft. Lauderdale is more pleasant than I thought it would be. I'm living with my widowed younger brother, Terry Knight. He also graduated from PBSH, in 1967. All of my uncles and aunts on my dad's side of the family (Cheshire and Banks) graduated from PBSH in the 1940's. Only one aunt remains, Bernice Banks Hayes. All my mother's people graduated from Ft. Lauderdale High. I would love to find Sandy Sigh Talbot (Reel Talbot), Eileen Floyd and other pals. Any other grads from Betty Johnson's World Literature class? One of the best classes I ever had anywhere.
Best to all of my fellow "Beanpickers",

I only attended PBHS my senior year, but I loved it. I was in the DCT Program. Jim Winans was our teacher. I moved to Washington DC in January 1960 with Shirley Stephens, who remains my dearest friend to this day. We manage to see each other three or four times a year. I no longer have anyone living in Pompano, but my husband I still vacation there every couple of years. I have been married 45 years, and have two children and two grandchildren who are, of course, brilliant, accomplished, yada, yada, yada. I am retired from the Federal Govt. We travel a lot both in the US and Europe. I love to cook and I collect cookbooks (over 1,000 at last count), and love to entertain. If you check for my picture you will find me, along with a picture of Keith Cheshire, at the END of the class of 1959 -- why there I don't know. I didn't think the photo was THAT bad!
Would love to hear from other DCTrs.

Trusted Christ as Savior at Pompano Youth Ranch(went to FLorida BIble College a year), met my husband Phil and we've been married 35 years and still ministering..he's a pastor and we still sing. We were secretly engaged in my senior year! I wrote a book called 'Born Too Soon' in 1986 about losing tripletts. Appeared in an Avon ad in 1976- i bet no one recognized me though- had so much makeup on! eek! I'm still madly in love with my husband, and have four grown children and two grandchildren.

I mean yeah people moan and groan about school while there in it, but I loved every bit of it. Everyone played such a crucial role I love all you guys. I was about to start listing but if I do I wont be finished. PNo was so unique what school can you go to now that you can be yourself and people accept you for that. Whether they like it or not does not matter but your accepted. It was like a big family and I dont think anyone was just alone at PNO. High school was the best years of my life so far. I started a group on facebook for a reunion. I would really like to see everyone soon, so join facebook if you have not already so we can set this thing up.

I've been married 36 years to a great Miami guy and working/teaching at Florida Christian School in Miami since 1975. My daughter just graduated from high school. Wish I could have replicated the wonderful times we had for her!

Jim Hood - Student (1960)

Wow! It is really hard to believe that I am old enough now to have a g-child who could graduate from High School. Years have flown by and so have the Hoods. We have lived all over the map. I spent my career years helping Xerox Corporation get started from the 60s through the late 80s; when I retired. We set branches from coast-to-coast. My area of responsibility was primarily North America; including Hawaii and Alaska.

As I traveled I always considerec my children's education first - before I made any move. Though we moved from Florida, to DC, California, to Virginia, then Texas, we never found a place as dynamic as Pompano; Plano, was a very close second!

For years now we have traveled from Georgia (winter quarters), to Texas (legal residence), and the Northwest; like Wyoming and Montana.

Many times we have found old school chums and laughed a lot about the 'good old days'; never to be same.

Married for 44 years now, two great kids, and five outstanding grandkids. It's a great life - I continually thank Pompano for the for the best of educations. It has allowed me into three of the best graduate schools.

Warmest regards to all . . . .

Hello Fellow Golden Tornadoes. What a great website for our old alma mater. I've visited Pompano Beach throughout the years and have always taken a tour through the old campus even when the school was closed.

After graduating in 1978, I attended the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and received a BS in Psychology. It didn't take long to find out that my degree and $0.50 got me a cup of coffee, so I immediately ended up in the business field.

I started in healthcare industry and eventually moved into the financial field where I was CEO of several credit unions. In 1990, I moved to Greensboro, NC and learned what it was like to have neighbors that actually spoke to you and waved using all five fingers.

After 12 years in Greensboro, I married Trish and moved to a suburb of Charlotte, NC. I have two wonderful Bonus (not Step) daughters. Olivia is 19 and a sophomore in college and Laura is 15 and going into her junior year of high school. I have been truly blessed to have become part of this great family.

I am working now as an executive recruiter. My specialty is the mortgage industry and I've enjoyed some good successes in this field.

I hear that the Class of '78 is combining their reunion with the Class of '77, so I hope to see you all next year.

If anyone wants to say hello, I'd love to catch up with you. Any Tradewinds members out there??

Bye for now,

Glad to see PBHS alive and well after all these years. I have lived in S.E Boca Raton for 20 years. My daughter was borne the year following the class of ’70, 20th reunion.

I have pretty much lost touch with all my school chums. I became a commercial illustrator after leaving junior college. As time went on, I realized how little I learned about grammar, spelling, and math while zoning out @ PBHS wishing I had paid attention!

Somehow I’m still getting by. My most interesting job since graduation was being the in-house artist for the National Enquires and the Palm Beach Post. Prentice Hall also hired me to illustrate a Psychology 101 text book, “Choice and Change”. For the last 10 years, I have been the lead graphic artist for Motorola’s Mobile Media Group (dry but pays the bills).

I hope to attend another class reunion and hear how others turned out. Some day, I would like to thank my art teachers, Mrs. Cella and Ms. Hayes for guiding my rebellious soul with art and understanding.

I belong to a wonderful Church and play all the time now! I have started a small ensemble group of all ages. Lately, I've been encouraged to do a bit more improv' with a country-gospel group that's open to the public on Sat. evenings.
One person I would definitely like to find out about is Valerie Kester. She was a great encouragement to me in those crazy high school years.

Robert R. Spear - Student (1978)

I was a student at Pompano Beach Senior High School from 1978 to 1982. One reality that will stay with me forever is that myself and my mother before me were members in the Golden Tornado Marching Band. I played (and still play) the same "Olds" trumpet she played back in the 50's. It is worth noting that the PBSH Golden Tornado Marching Band achieved 24 consecutive years of straight superior ratings in marching band contests in South Florida. This streak ended in 1979 when Mr. Switzer (Music teacher at the time) left Pompano High for another teaching job at one of the universities in South Florida. Pompano High was a very popular school in the area. It met it's demise in 1985 due to pressures to populate the newly renovated Blanch Ely High School in the Western part of the city. I'm glad to see that the city has put the effort and money back into rebuilding a school so rich in tradition and excellence. Those new to the Pompano area may be suprised to know that this high school's moniker was originally "Bean Pickers" before "Golden Tornados." This name came into being primarily because Pompano was heavily populated with farmers from Alabama and Georga. Green beans were a staple crop for many years before urbanization consumed most farmlands in South Florida. It would be nice to see a historical section on the "" web site.

Also, for having the boldness to tell a student what their weaknesses are. Thank you Mr. Mumtaz, you gave me the patience and understanding which allows me to coup with the nonsensical teachings of College professors. I've since learned that teaching is a compromise I have to give some to get some. Finally Thanks to the administration (especially Mr. Bell).

Since I lived on the beach, I had few friends which turned out to be a blessing. My parents stressed discipline and hard work. As a pre-teen, I had a paper route and when the Broward News folks told me that I was selling too many papers for someone on foot, I quit and went to work elsewhere and did one heck of a lot better, netting and selling finger mullet, repairing rods and reels. When I was drafted out of my senior year of college I had no intention of remaining in the Army but I did the best I could. Went from PVT to LTC in 22 years and retired with 2 master's degrees - hard work will reap rewards, while sitting on your butt and hoping someone will take care of your stinks. All 4 of our kids have college degrees - 2 have Master's degrees- they helped to pay for their degrees. There might be a lesson here for Democrats. Be well.

I started the first grade at Pompano all the grades were at the one location. Those were the best years of my life. In the 50's there was no where like PBHS or the Beanpickers. I think they should let us be in the Beanpicker club also. I don't even remember the Golden Toranados myself. I really like the site who ever put it together did a realy good job.

I just receintly attended our 50th reunion at Denny and Betty Jean McNab's in Pompano. It was a wonderful time and the highlight of the year. I would urge all to get involved with any reunions.
I am proud to be a Beanpicker and have spent the last 30 years in south Florida as a high school teacher. I am now searching for the old 50's type of town that Pompano was. I may have to look outside of Florida to find it.

I went to PBHS from the 1st grade until the 12th and graduated in 1959. I remember when the name of the Beanpickers changed, I thought that Golden Tornados was kind of a fake name. I liked the Beanpickers, it fit because it was a farming community. I played in the band and when the new school was built, I towed Earlene Dafler on the bike from the new school to the old school (we were in the 6th grade) for band practice. I think that we were the youngest members of the band. Poor Mr. Drake! I had an interesting life and have lived in the Netherlands for almost 22 years and feel at home. I have come to the US for a visit 4 times in so many years.

Pompano High School on 4th Avenue has a lot of fun memories for me. I also remember the good times at the ball games at the old park on 4th Avenue. I was in the band so I spent a lot of time there. I also loved the Jamboree at the Farmer's Market where we had a Jamboree King and Queen from our school. The barbeque was delicious, too. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Creech and she really made English interesting. I have been married almost 45 years, have 3 children and three grandchildren. Life has been good. Would love to hear from fellow '59 graduates.

Lived there until 1977 when we moved to the panhandle of Florida. I married Neil Spear in 1957 and we have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. The town we live in reminds me of Pompano during the 1950's as it is small and everyone knows everyone here. Glad to be called a Beanpicker!

Hi everyone,
I'm so pleased with this website! I started first grade at Pompano Elementary (Miss Gillis), went to school in S.C. for junior high and then back to Pompano for the rest of the years. Carol Ann Courson and I were "majoretts" for the first band (Mr. Canfield dir.) Our mothers made all the first uniforms for the girls sitting at sewing machines on our front porch, across the street from the school on 6th street. I'll never forget the yards and yards of gold satin!! My brother Tom graduated in '50 and played football. Some real good times durig those years AND we respected our parents, teachers and God was awesome!!!
Good luck to all who have walked those "hallowed halls".

I started in the 2nd grade at PHS and graduated in 1945. There was 18 in my graducating class as some classmates departed for the service before graduating. Pompano was all farming with only 2,000 whites. Our 45 football team and basketball team were some of the highlights of my entire life. Our football team went undefeated I felt I received a great education and later graduated from law at U. Of Fla. Was in army JAG for 3 years and was stationed in Pentagon and Germany doing General Court Martial cases. Upon discharge I practiced law in Ft. Lauderdale until semi retirement in 2000. Moved to Davie in 2001 where I practice a limited degree in law from my home. I really cherish my relationships with the ol' timers.

I too have fond memories of PBHS. I used to live in one of the Kester Cottages for a while. George Heflin was my neighbor and the closest thing I ever had to a brother. I enjoyed being a member of the band for 4 years. Mr. Drake was an awesome director and Helen Creech was a wonderful English teacher. Who could forget "Poppa Carlisle?" I still have tears when I hear our Alma Mater being sung. We have class reunions about every 5 years. I am a proud mother of 2 kids who gave me 8 grandkids. I do feel sorry for the kids now growing up. They will never experience the good ole days of school like we did.

I'm thrilled to be a part of this website. In spite of the many years since 1934, I still remember Pompano High on 4th St., backed up to the Robinson's home, my relatives. I came down for my senior year to spend the time with Aunt, Uncle and cousin. Marian was a junior, and had lots of friends, who became mine. I got sand in my shoes and moonstruck that year, have been back several times. I hope to see someone else from around my time. I surely can't be the only one still living! We were really bean pickers at that time, we had only a basketball team. Some of us would travel around with the team as cheer leaders! It was a wonderful year. I do remember the hand cranked bridge and the Kester Cottages on A1A. There were 13 in our class, and Orion Mann was the principal. Pompano Beach is lovely, but it is not the cozy little town it was in my day! It was a wonderful year.

Hi everyone or anyone who remembers me. I was voted most likely to skip 20% of the senior class days, including yearbook photo day. Wasn't much into school spirit... it interfered with surfing & partying. I did manage to graduate with good grades and moved to Gainesville where I've been for most of the past 29 years. Didn't make any reunions but I'm interested in coming to a 30th if there is one. I do have some nice memories of high school friends and would love to here from any of you.

Pompano Senior High was, and apparently is again, a great school. I directed the senior class play (nice job, John Jolly and Lucy), was in the band and particpated in a great many activities to distract myself from adolescence. Once I graduated, I went on to Palm Beach Junior College, the University of Florida, Flordia Atlantic University and finished with a Ph.D. from Temple University. Many teachers at Pompano High taught me wonderful lessons. Thank you. My closest friends, Chris Michelson, Viki Zorn, Anne Balistreri and Dolores Del-Zio continue to be part of my life.
Thanks, ladies!
I live south of Los Angeles on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and I am in private practice as an educational psychologist.  See my website at 
Our 17-year old son is going to be a senior this year.  What a great kid.  We are so blessed!  Where did the time go..he was a baby just 10 minutes ago!?  Hope to hear from my classmates.

It's so funny how time will sure pass you by. I cannot believe that I am a senior in college! I remember being a student in High School. It is so true: TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE! I was just looking at my yearbooks and I said to myself, I miss high school. I called my friends and we had a long session thinking about the past. Of all the things in life I would not have changed my 3 years at PBHS. I want to thank a few people because without them, I doubt if I would be the person I am today: Ms.Zarello, Ms. Vazquez- thank you for all the papers you made me re-do I did not know it then but it made me such a better writer. I can write an essay without using the word "I" , Ms. Stephenson, Dr. Shipe- I swear was the coolest teacher I had! Ms. Sesti, Mr. Hazell- for makin me smile when I thought I had nothing to smile for! Ms. McFadden- thank you for listening, the talks really helped. Mr. Harris- thank you and Ms. McFadden for the trip to FAMU I know you all risked alot taking a bunch of high school students 8 hours away from home but I will never forget that trip. Mr. Bell for the pats on the back. Mr. Lamarca, Ms. Jacobson-for not letting me be a slacker in her class. Ms. Sagae-Fisher for showing me my first dose of reality! Mr. Julian u were an awesome guy. Mr. Taylor, Coach Gillis-I never had you as a teacher but I've learned so much from talking to and knowing you. And last but definetley not least in my heart MR. WEAVER Thank You sooooo much for keeping me in check. I swear in high school you hated me because it seemed like you were always yelling at me. I now KNOW and can appreciate all of that yelling for LOVE! I know it was for my best interest and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I also would like to say hello to all of my friends especially Heather Mattadeen, ShaNeda Simon, Princess Shumake, George Reynolds, Mary and Michelle,Glynn Bostic, Javon Powell, Marshall Colbert, the rest of the jocks, and the list can go on for days. If I did not specifically write your name blame it on my laziness of not wanting to type and definetley not my heart. I am entering my senior year at Florida A&M University my major is History and I have 2 minors; Education and Criminal Justice. Once I graduate I am going to grad school for Educational Leadership. Who would have thought this would be the end product of someone who had detention EVERY Friday their senior year. I was just a "diamond in the rough"

But I'm happy in a very special way, after all I dont recieve diplomas every day! I will miss all the students, staff and faculty at MY PBHS....

Mr Bell (a former Flying L, but we forgave him for that) graciously gave us a tour of the new PBSH. There are still parts of what we knew of the old PBSH.....A building and part of the small auditorium, but the memories really came flooding back when we revisited the GYM......assemblies, our homeroom assigned seats, choral concerts.....Mrs. Wager's dumb soft ball drills......Jim Delaney eating a roach.....YUCK!! and graduation and many many more memories!!

For those of you from the class of 1969 that missed the reunion, we had a great time. Your next chance will be in 2009, so mark your calendars and contact me, so that you will be sure to be included on the class roster.

Anyway, it doesn't seem like school being over has quite sunk in. I don't really feel any different; it doesn't even really feel like summer. It kinda feels like it happened ages ago, but it's only been less than a week. Time seems to be going slowly; kinda wierd. It's probably because I don't exactly have a 'weekend' to look forward to, so everything's just like.. I'm not sure. Maybe I've been sleeping too much.

I can’t believe it has been 3 years since I walked the stage for Pompano High. Wow how time flies! I loved my years at Pompano I learned a lot about myself it helped me become who I am today. I want to give a special thank you to Mr. Weaver for almost being a second father to me. I couldn’t do anything it seemed in school like he had a camera on me 24/7 but in the long run I appreciate it so much. I never will forget how Mr. Weaver went out of his way to put me on “lockdown”! I hope he continues on doing that to his other students at the other school he’s at now. I also want to give a special thank you to Ms. Gortney who was the drama teacher. I will always remember the whole Grease play I did in that class. The outcome of taking that class could be my future. I now work at the same insurance company I did when I was in high school and I also do acting/modeling jobs on the side as well. I’m hoping to make acting my full-time career. The memories made in Pompano will always be in my heart, never forgotten. To the classmates in Pompano e-mail me; it would be nice to hear from you.

I was surprised to find this site, last I heard, the school was an adult education center. Good news to know it made a comeback. Sentimental mood made me do a search, my daughter graduated high school this afternoon!! Brought back wonderful memories of high school. Now working for JPMChase doing desktop support and raising two kids, one which leaves for Jacksonville in the Fall, the other entering middle school come August.

I cant say I hated Pompano because I got away with more than I could have ever at any other high school (I jumped out of a window in Mr. Quilens class and to Mr. Weaver... I SPRAYED THE STINKY SPRAY!!!). Where else can one run for homecoming, NOT CARE ABOUT WINNING and actually win?! (sorry vinny!). Although I am upset that I never got to have classes in the new building. But I did enjoy certain classes/teachers... Mir, Coach Covey, Vazquez and of course QUILEN!! and to the hotheads, Mr. Weaver and Mr. Gillis, I hope you two are busting the students heads like you did to us.

When I moved away, I didn't realize how much I'd miss Pompano, not just the school, but everything. I visit my Grandma every year, usually during the summer and I've stopped by the school. I can't believe what they've done, it's not Pompano High anymore. I visited in March and there's only a few old buildings left. I shead a few tears for what it used to be and how much it meant to me. I'll always have me yearbook I guess.

I miss everyone I was close to, Lisa, Becky, Sally, Ashton, Martin Nothing but the best to those I haven't talked to in a while.

I will be darned! Pompano High rises again. I went to Pompano Jr. High and Pompano High and lived, initially, down by the inlet, and then moved to a house just north of Atlantic and east of Federal. I remember Pompano Pier, the mall, warehouse parties, Mr. Wilkner (the best teacher), the Odyssey, the Seed(!), Roma's hoagies for lunch, Lindsley Lumber, and long hair and ridiculous clothing. I fondly remember Marianne Genaro, Lita Hardin, Brian Konigsburg, Steve Fehr, Traci Ball, Ken and Sandi Kalilich, and Ed Bradley (hi Ed! I saw your post). After I graduated I had a great time being a beach bum, but I finally got bored and joined the Navy in 1988. I've been all over the world and am lucky enough to be a Chief Petty Officer stationed on a submarine tender in Sardinia. I look forward to our 30 year reunion in 2006!

**Ummm** Many days have come and many raindrops have fallen, but through it all I've survived! To the staff of PBHS my hat's off to you all. Mr. Pitts(sighs), you are the best! I was once told that you can't enjoy the rainbow until you endure the storm, and you've been there every moment with me on both sides. My storm was those last days of high school and the rainbow lit up bright at graduation. Thank You. To those who feel like they have any input to my outcome, Thank You. To Coach Hazell, we went through our times of struggles. my senior year was hard especially when basketball season came around. I took total control of your try-outs and made your stars work hard, and you cut me! The last year I had to play ball for high school, you took my goal and stepped on it like a roach in your living room. And because you have done this to me, I've learned the one who makes me suffer, just makes me stronger and makes me tougher. So to clear up the reecord, THANKS!

I graduated in 1960 -- first class to graduate in the new high school. This is my first visit to the Website and I think it's great! I also enjoyed reading the history of PBHS -- I have fond memories of the "Beanpickers" -- we had a tough time embracing the name change to Golden Tornadoes. My recollection of why it was changed was that it was hard to take a football team called the "Beanpickers" seriously, hence the name change. I have fond memories of my years at Pompano and have enjoyed the mini reunions we've had at Kathy Whiteside's home in Madison, GA. Looking forward to our next "big" reunion and visiting South Florida -- where have the years gone?

People like Mr. Weaver, Mr. Hazell, Mr. Frey, and Coach Stephens should be at every school but I'm glad they were at mine. It was a lond road and I survived only by their guidance. Mr. Bell you pushed us hard at Pompano, many of the things we did, I never understood why we did them until now. I'd like to send special shoutouts to Joele Theagene, Sharonda Chery, Angel McCullough,Shanae Geter, and to Jean Cherizol. My love for you all will always be there.

Anyone out there graduate in '69? It was a very good year! (VietNam War no withstanding.) Haven't been able to make any of the reunions, but remember PBHS fondly. Thanks to Helen Creech, I learned that theatre is one of the most rewarding things you can do with your time and that's what I've been doing ever since. After one husband and two kids (beautiful daughters, now 24 and 28!!!!) I received a BFA in Directing in '89 and an MFA in Directing in '92, been teaching at the college level and directing ever since. Recently was Director of Creative Arts for the Sloan Museum in Flint, Michigan, heading up a 3-yr., grant funded Living History Project. Grant has expired so now I have time for things this.

It seems the older we get the more we back at high school, especially when our children are that age. I have occasion to go by the school and brings back great memories, all good. Whether it was the school, the fact that Pompano was still growing as a city, but it just seemed we had so much to do, whether in school or out, and all enjoyed it much. If anyone who reads this went on our keys trip we concocted for the ecology club, they know what I mean! If any current students read this page, all I can say is enjoy these years, be responsible, learn all you can and have fun, they are the best.

I miss all my major influences, Mrs. Pelegrino, Mrs. Hill, Mrs. Vasquez, Dr. Shipe, Mr. Rivera and last but not least Mr. Weaver!!! Mr. Weaver was a huge part of my high school days, always tryin' to keep everyone in check, and looking out for all his "kids". thanks! you did good. hope all the future classes appreciate the valuable lessons P.B.H.S. teaches, don't take it for granted!!! it'll all be over way too soon....

Whats Up Pompano Beach!!!! The last two years at PBHS have been... interesting. I had a lot of fun at P-No, even though I probably spent more time in Mr. Pitts and Mr. Weaver's office than I did in class. I also learned a lot, not only history and math, but also how to be a better person. One teacher, in particular, taught me that you shouldn't let your past cloud up your judgement or your future. I will never forget that.

Anyways, "Big Up" to Mr. Williams, Dr. Shipe, Mr. Lamarca, Mrs. Scott, and my favorite teacher, Mrs. Culina. Also shoutouts to all my friends, and special shotouts to all the good looking ladies that I was fourtunate to meet there. I'm looking forward to comming back asap.
