'82 Amber Alderete-Trujillo

Hello all.  My first-born of 4 boys has just graduated from Motorcycle Mechanics Institute this past December. We are very proud of him graduating in top 3 percent of his class. He just got hired for pit crew for a pro team from France.  So it's one down and three to go! I have two in high school (9th and 10th grade) and one in elementary (3rd grade). I've still have a few years to go. (Posted 1/12/9)

Ralph Rivas '75:  Went to a wedding a few weeks ago. The groom is a good friend from my church. I didn't know the bride very well but it turns out her dad currently teaches at Mark Keppel AND he was my Jr. English teacher.  He taught Bible as Lit (I guess you could teach that back then). He's been at Mark Keppel for over 34 years. His name is Mr. (Dennis) Mielke. He kinda remembered me. But I remembered him, a really cool teacher. He's the only teacher I acknowledged in my 'Senior Memories the Keppel annual.  (Posted 8/21/7)

Anyways, what a small world,

Michael Green '68:  I was happy to see that you have brought together so many former Aztecs with warm, fuzzy feelings about their alma mater. You have every right to be proud. Mark Keppel was recognized in 2005 as a California Distinguished School with an added accolade for our Exemplary Career-Technical Education Program. We have been chosen to host two smaller learning academies beginning next year and we welcome the advice and counsel of former students. I am coordinating the new Mark Keppel High School Business Academy. I would welcome any former graduates who are in business locally to join other business executives and city officials on our advisory committee. (Posted June 2007.)

'81 - Joey Caruso:  Joey prepared a skit that was played the night of the reunion, but it was so loud in the room you really couldn't hear it.  (He was on the schedule as a speaker along with Mike Lucero '81.)  The set-up was that Joey was announced, but couldn't be located to speak.  Then, the video begins.  This guy is talented...and a little nuts!  But we love him!  Here's the link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNf3ZE5Dius.
