School Story:

Wonderful memories of my friends, teachers, coaches (including Stan Buchanan who was both my (freshman) basketball coach and my (sophomore) English teacher; he was a very strong role model for me...
Also, great memories of Sylvia Jones, Doug Basham (who was also my track coach, and another strong role model), and many others. My teachers at Redwood were super, setting me up for what seemed to be relatively easy work at UC Davis, UC Berkeley (graduate school in Chemistry) and George Washington University Medical School.
