Daniel Gibson
Marital Status: single
Children: no
Comments: I'm looking to interview several male classmates (strictly for scientific purposes) who were present at a historical meeting in my backyard, way back in August, 1974, just prior to my moving out-of-state. I believe some of those young men present may have been: Mark Elliot, Marc Nail, Marty LaValle, Mike Carr, and Mike Carter. While some of these boys may have also gone surfing with Chris Carter, I was not allowed to go...

Marital Status: Divorced/Remarried
Spouse Name:Dwaine Mackey
Spouse CV Class of 1967
Children: Ginger '79, Travis '81
Occupation:Administrative Assistant at City of Glendale
Reunion: I missed the previous reunions. I was stranded on a desert island for a while. (Not really. It just seemed that way.) I'll try to stay on the planet for the 30th.
Comments: It's been a blast checking out this site, seeing old familiar faces. What a long, strange trip it's been!!!! Where did the last 25 years go? It's good to see so many of us are doing well, sad to see those who left us too soon. Love to hear from just about anybody.!!

Margaret (Glenday) Innocenti
Marital Status: Divorced / Remarried
Husband: Marcello Innocenti
Children: Greg 1/28/85, Laura 9/7/88
Occupation: Licensed Tax Preparer at Husband's business- -Accurate Bookkeeping and Tax Service
Comments: I missed the reunion because my family was performing in the Actor's Cabaret of Eugene (Oregon) presentation of Evita at the Hult Center. The musical theater bug has bit our whole family. My daughter has severe arthritis and is wheelchair bound but Actor's Cabaret made the stage accessable for her. Even though ACE is deemed community theater, we have been visited by Tony award winning producers and recently Anthony Rapp chose our theater for his book signing. Who would have thought that quiet Margaret from CVHS would get a chance to play Vicky Nichols in Full Monty, Mrs. Fezziwig in A Christmas Carol and I just got cast as Mrs. Taylor in Batboy? I am thankful to be a part of the Arts in a community known for the Arts. It has done miracles for not only my daughter, who was chosen as the Hult's SHO performing arts student of March, 2006 but my son as well, who just played the lead in Lane Community College's presentation in Kiss Me Kate. My husband recently performed the role of Dickinson in 1776 and Marley in A Christmas Carol. I am thankful that I stuck with Miss Nute's strict discipline because it has helped me. I think of people from CV from time to time. I am sorry I missed the reunion. [August 1, 2006]

Derek Hermans

Derek passed away on April 2, 2008, in Davis, California after battling his demons for many years. While he and I were almost complete opposites and lived apart for many years, we could always pick up a previous conversation from where we had left off. Derek taught me some of the finer points of defense when playing water polo including many so called "dirty tricks" that he had to use to make up for his lack of speed. He often spoke of how he wasted his years at CV and wished he could have the time back. Fear not, he is at peace now.

Occupation: After 19 years at United Airlines with nothing Good happening, It was time to start my own construction company. I am now self-employed
Comments: After looking at all the old photos, I can't believe It's been 30 years. So many things have happened, Good & Not So Good. But our class seems to have weathered it's way tru it fairly well. It makes me remember the good old days when life was easier and we had no real responsabilities. It's easy to get home sick for LaCrescenta, even if I do come down to visit every once in a while, since my parents and one brother still live there. I have to say after a lot of traveling over the years and living in the bay area (northern Ca.),It's easy to miss SOUTHERN CAL. After missing the last two gatherings I'm looking forward to reconnecting with a truly great class.
