1968

Name in High School: Kurt Held

Favorite High School Memories:
Phyllis Hutchinson, the librarians hated me, peanut butter squares, good lookin’ women, great cars, playing football and baseball. Coach Stanton wore a size 9 shoe! Mr. Read gave me a dollar every Friday, to get a haircut, much to the chagrin of Carolyn Tripp, flipping coins, the balcony of the auditorium, Don’s Suburban Men’s Shop, Nestor’s and his 20 daughter’s, Digangi and our pranks, Managing Digangi’s Run for President, assembly (rock out ). An additional joint showing up in the plastic case being passed around by the Portland Police Department drug assembly. Rhino challenging us after we booed him at freshman orientation, he challenged us to come to his office, 250 stood in line in the office and down the hall, told us all to get lost. What did he think would happen when introduced as the “new” disciplinary vice principal, punched holes in my student body card….more to come, later

Favorite Teachers:
Phyllis Hutchinson,  Phil Read, Jean Chisolm, Tom Witty, Merle Meinike, Al Gray, Eggen and Fenker

I agree with your comments. JAN! Be sure to make room for me at the bar too! I wish I could have been there my freshman year to see 250 students lined outside the administrative office…what a hoot!
