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.

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.

6/15/2007 Congratulations - Our 32nd Graduation Anniversary
It was June 16, 1977, 8:00 P.M. that the Santa Maria High School Class of 1977 had it's Commencement Exercise at Dave Boyd Field. Do you remember who your graduation partner was? Do you re

After high school I went to college at Pepperdine's beautiful Malibu campus. I learned to surf, graduated with a BA and MBA, and married my college sweetheart. We divorced after 16 years together and I have concentrated on being a single mom. Now my son is off to college and I am feeling the empty nest but enjoying the freedom to grow and learn things.
I have been teaching for the last 21 years and I love my job. It is amazing to see these little minds absorbing knowledge. I know I make a difference in their lives and that is so very rewarding. My choice of profession is a bit ironic because in high school I was not a good student.
I love to travel. In the last few years I have been to Italy, Southeast Asia, Jamaica, and Tahiti. I am proud of the fact that I own my home in Thousand Oaks. I do work hard and I enjoy my play time.
I live with my dog Charlie who is definitely a part of the family. He is a Queensland Heeler (the smartest breed ever), I swear he understands english. He is high energy and we go herding sheep weekly and now starting agility classes.
Now that my son is older and off on his way. I would like to find a "special someone" to share my life with. Does anyone out there know a nice guy for me?
