IN LOVING MEMORY
WAS IT ONLY YESTERDAY?
Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we cruised Broadway from Jack In the Box to Taco Bell?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?
Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?
You are still a part of our hearts and you will always be our
Cherished Friends Forever.
This site is operated and funded by members of our class.

SANTA MARIA HIGH SCHOOL MOTTO
Enter to learn, go forth to serve,
Is the motto of our school.
It guides us wisely lest we swerve,
From the law of the golden rule.
Inscribed before us in letters bright,
Above our stage for acts and plays.
Always ready to catch our sight,
As we eagerly listen to every phrase.
Freshies gaze at it, with fear;
Sophomores take it all to heart,
Juniors love it more each year,
Seniors prize it on their part.
Enter to learn; to learn we must;
Go forth to serve, to serve mankind;
Gather from each his wontry trust,
And in this motto our joys well find.
SMUHS Class of 1930
Tami Bowden-Wilkening is offering a reward for the SAFE RETURN of her Senior High School yearbook that was stolen off the back table at the 30th reunion. I have had this book for 30 years. It has a special spot on a bookshelf with all of the other yearbooks and memory books. All of the people that signed it in High School had messages for "ME". It has been more than 1 year, and now it is a crime, not only to me, not only to our class and but our school, as well. The reunion committee will pay for a replacement, at our class expense. That's right, coming out of CLASS money. The other problem, when and if we can locate a replacement and that could be a very long time.
If you know anything, please come forward with information. If you wish not to talk to me, than get in touch with Graham, Jesse or Kristina.
This notice will be on this site until 6/16/2059. Most of us will be 100 years old by then. You get the picture. Also, this notice is on the internet for all to see.
Be a SMHS SAINT, and return my senior yearbook. Thank you for your cooperation.
