Just a quick report to provide the results of the roll-call count at the April 26, 2019 Vallejo High School Alumni Day Celebration. The "upstart" VHS Class of 1964 actually tied the Class of 1957 Alumni attendees with eleven alumni in attendance from each class.
Registration started at 9 am in the school cafeteria where refreshments were served, hosted by the VHS Hospitality Academy under the direction of Camille Jefferson.
The program in the school auditorium commenced at 10 am with the Master of Ceremonies, Phil Saroyan, VHS Class of 1965 (VHS principal 1993-2009) leading the flag salute and the singing of 'God Bless America'. He next introduced the keynote speaker; President of the Vallejo City Unified School District; Bob Lawson, VHS Class of 1964.
During the program, entertainment was be provided by the VHS Band under the direction of Carmel Pajita, the VHS cheerleaders directed by Reyanna Stowes, and the VHS Choir led by Denise Hunter.
Bruce Christensen introduced the 2018 Apache Scholarship awardee, Emma Alexander, who reported on her first year attending Napa Valley College. She will continue her college education with the goal of working in law enforcement.
After the roll call of VHS classes competition, which the Class of '57 and Class of '64 tied, the program wrapped up with the Alumni singing the VHS alma mater accompanied by the VHS Band.
Afterward, in the school library, many alumni viewed the dozens of VHS historical memorabilia that were on display courtesy of the VHS Athletic Director, Josh Ramos.
Many photos were taken during the event and some are posted on the link below.....My apologies for those pictures that are 'blurry'; perhaps my camera is trying to call it quits. If any of you happen to have additional "non-blurry" photos, email them to [email protected] and they will be posted.

After graduation I went to work at Napa State Hospital as a Psychiatric Technician. In 1958 I married Mark Barker. After working at Napa State for a few years I decided to stay home to raise children. I was a stay at home Mom and enjoyed my children immensely. I was a Bluebird leader, Cub Scout Den Mother, Room Mother, little league mother during the school years. Later I went to Real Estate School and got my license and sold Real Estate for a while. My husband retired from Mare Island as a Scheduler in the Ocean Engineering Dept. We have been fortunate to be able to do a lot of traveling. We have visited places we never dreamed we would ever to be able to see.
Our children live close by.....Wendy and her husband Randy live in Napa and have given us our only grandchildren. Ryan (21) is in his Junior year at U.C. Davis. Kevin (17) is in his Senior year at Napa High. Wendy and Randy have been married for 24 years. Michael & his wife Dana live in Vallejo and have been married 21 years. "J.J" (real name John Jeffrey)has just moved back to Vallejo and is single. Mark and I celebrated our 50th anniversary Sept. 2008
It has been great being in contact with so many of our old classmates again. I enjoy hearing from everyone.
