Some of you know me at "Jim" and some of you know me as "Butch"..
I attended Chino Valley Schools from Kindergarten to the 8th grade. I was the first graduating class from Newman Elementary School and attended Chino Junior High for 7th & 8th grades. From there I attended high school at West Coast Bible College in Clovis, CA. Thanks to HG & Gerri Smith I have always been invited to the class reunions.
I have been president of O.F. Wolfinbarger, Inc. a landscape supply and trucking company in Chino on Francis and Benson for about 30 years and have worked there even longer. I live in Diamond Bar, CA with my best friend and wife, Barbara. Together we have six children - two daughters and one son of mine along with Barbara's three sons. Our family has grown with the addition of five grandchildren two girls and three boys. Life is busy and happy with work and family. Hope to see you at the 50th reunion.
Chino High School is one of the oldest schools in all of Southern California. Its history goes back to 1897 when Chino School District and Chino High School were founded. The first class graduated in 1900 from a building long ago demolished, and supplanted by the current Community Building.
In the year 1862, the manager of the Chino Ranch, Joe Bridger, asked for a census to establish a need for the construction of a public school.
The current campus of Chino High dates from 1951, where ten class buildings were constructed at the corner of Tenth Street and Park Place.
Chino High School, in those days, consisted of a junior and senior high combination, and was referred, to as Chino Junior and Senior High. Students attending Chino High, depending upon the classes they attended, had to commute (on foot) between the Riverside campus (presently District Office) and Park Place (current location).
Slowly, but surely, additions were made to the current campus, such as the boys shower and locker building in 1951, with the girls staying at the Riverside campus for the time being. Shortly thereafter, the bleachers and the stadium were constructed and with it the girls shower and locker building. Our gym was not built until 1963.
Chino High was constructed on 55 acres of land with the idea of constructing a junior college on its grounds. In those days, Chino was not included in a junior college district as it is now (Chaffey Community College District).
