#43, John 'The Reaper' Butterworth!  



November 24, 2018

Be sure to complete the class reunion survey.  A link can be found to the left of this announcement, in the sidebar. 

But hurry!  You've got until 12/31/2018 to complete it.

What's being planned for our 40th?  Lots!  It all begins with Liz Warren....again....sharing photos and anecdotes of her time in China.  Now Dr. Warren (yes, she got a Doctoral degree from USC and now she INSISTS everyone refer to her as Dr. Warren), she will explain to us why, in a country of 1 billion people, the Yellow River got its name.  Don't know your Mandarin from your Cantonese?  Liz does!  Learn to speak both Chinese dialects like a pro.  Liz will give immersive lessons to all reunion attendees.  Upon course completion, graduates will receive a signed copy of Liz's new book 'From Speedway to Shanghai: My Wonderful Life As A Celebutante'.  Trust me, you won't want to put it down.

Liz will share her career path, from her humble beginnings as a tugboat captain in the Port of Los Angeles, to her current role as brand ambassador for P.F. Chang's Chinese restaurants.  Her new role takes her to lots of exciting California locations: Compton, Cudahy, Hemet, West Covina and more.  

And what SHS class reunion would be complete without our starlet Liz belting out some of her favorite jazz standards.  Pulling from her extensive repertoire, be prepared to hear such classics as 'Take The A  Train', 'I Left My Heart In San Francisco', 'Fly Me To The Moon' and more.  

So get ready!  Our summer reunion event promises to be even more Liz-centric than ever before.  It's gonna be epic!
