Alumni Tributes and Recollections

 
 

From Wilfried Johnson via Facebook

Since I have become part of the group, I found many pictures of FAHS and was updated. It is is sad to hear that Ms. Costello (Latin 1972) and Ms. Nicholas (AP-English 1972, both inspired my character and teaching style!) have passed away. They were a great inspiration and influenced my life and career! Does anyone know what happen to Mr. Haight (Fortran-Class in 1972, set my path to media advisor for juveniles - digital natives of today), Mr. Sonier (Chemistry 1972 - influenced my teaching style!), Mr. Schmidt (Psychology 1972, inspired me and led to my UCLA psychology degree). My thoughts are often with Mr. Westhusin and what he taught in the European Finianical Crisis.They are a valuable inspiration to my life and have an enormous effect upon my pupils und juveniles in my present duties in the municpal youths services... How could I not mention Ms Rotter ... my love for poetry and Robert Frost!

Joan P. Costello



Subject: [fhs63-66] Miss Costello, my Latin teacher
To: fhs63-66@yahoogroups.com
Date: Tuesday, August 17, 2010, 12:55 PM

To this day, I still think of Miss Joan Costello, my Latin teacher at FAHS. I went there from 1962 to 1964. She was pretty tough as a teacher, but I have always remembered her as being a very fine individual and a nice person who really cared about her students. I know that Miss Costello died a couple of years ago, but her memory will stay with me forever.

Greg Hall

I also had Ms Costello for Latin I; she took great care to make sure I understood all that I needed to know.

Jerry on the Air - WPN Frankfurt

click image to enlarge

See the WPN on

26.08.10 Well, today's live WPM show developed an animating dynamic all of its own. It featured an ageless co-hosting guest whose articulate vitality and grounded zest for life belied his human age of 75.
And even though we didn't achieve my original intention of something much greater: we simply achieved down-to-earth radio, warts and all, providing thus much more interesting, much more exciting radio.
Especially Jerry's answer on what a good teacher is and what impact that has on the future development of their students made for great radio.
By the time Cathy called us live on the air - all the way from the US - did we hit the zenith.
I mean reflect on this one: an actual former student felt compelled enough to call from the other side of the world so to bear witness to her teacher's magical ability in opening her eyes for the world and so positively affecting her future pathway in life...
It truly made for great radio as the emotion of it all almost got the better of us (likely including some listeners). It simply culminated into a pure and wonderful moment. Mind you, something like this can only happen on commercial-free radio.
© Commercial-free radio does not interrupt. Commercial-free radio does not kill a moment by needing to go to yet another commercial break. Commercial-free radio furthers moments of reflection, be they past, present or future. ©
Thanks for giving me a listen. Thanks for being my actual radio page friends or just frequent visitors to my fb presentation. Anyway, we must have done something right today as it resulted in three new WPM friends as of today. Thank you very kindly. Welcome one and all!
Best regards - WPM

Herbert Reid

Reid

Mr. Reid, our band director, conducted an orchestra that consisted of military and state department personnel and/or spouses in the area—anyone who played an orchestral instrument was welcome. Because they didn’t have a flute or a bassoon, Mr. Reid asked Richard Lacey and me to join the group, so we would walk over to the high school in the evening to play music with all those adults.
That was my first experience with what we all know now as a community orchestra. Following a 10-year hiatus after high school, I have played in community orchestras, pit orchestras, various pick-up groups, a bassoon group, and sometimes even my folk choir at church. Being part of that Frankfurt community orchestra gave me the understanding that even though I had no plans to major in music, playing music could always be part of my life.

Thank you!
Ann Mayers '63
