Steve and Mary Amo Graf, Ken Elling and Janet Nollan Elling, and Sharon
Mansfield Archuletta. Janet and Sharon are checking out old friends
in the 1960 Aviation High School Talon yearbook that was brought
by Gloria Gentle Pedersen (AHS '60). Because almost all 1960 AHS
graduates attended Mira Costa in 1956-57, they have been invited to MCHS
1960 functions ever since AHS was closed in 1984-85. An opinion from
the webmaster: Building and then closing a third high school in
a district where long-term enrollment trends indicated that only two high
schools were needed is the South Bay's exhibit A for wasteful planning.
Besides, it needlessly divided classmates and created situations like this
one where MCHS alumni look in the AHS yearbook to find friends.
