More than 250 members of the Los Altos High School classes of 1958-1975 convened at Cupertino’s Blackberry Farm May 14 to reunite with old friends and mentors and share memories of their high school years.
Former student Patti Palmer told former French instructor Marilyn Young how her French class and other meetings with Young had inspired her to travel to France multiple times, with another trip scheduled this year. Jane Fuchs, Holiday Matchett and Allyson Johnson – all from the Class of 1962 – recalled performing “Macbeth” in Claire Pelton’s English class and took turns reciting quotations from the three witches’ incantations and Lady Macbeth’s mad scene. Others gathered around U.S. history teacher Ken Bruce and fondly remembered his charges up San Juan Hill.
