There are many sites on the web that bring back memories.  Here are a few that we have found, and others that you have sent to us.  If you have another one, please send it to Steve Chell.  Just click on Steve's name and send it on its way!

Or perhaps you have a personal or business website that would be appropriate for the Classmates page.  There is a place that asks you to input your website address as part of the registration process. Please do so ... then send the link to
Steve for inclusion below.

Something Special:


(From Yoshi Minegishi, who says,"Maybe this is one of the core reasons that Sequoia athletic teams were highly successful!)

Lt. Brian Brennan was severely wounded in Iraq and faced unbeatable odds
but, as David Martin reports, he made a remarkable recovery with a little help from a special Cherokee word.
