Hello Whoever you are,           Class of January 1953

WOW! I just found out about this webpage and I am totally impressed! I am from the Juneau
class of January 27, 1953. I was the class "Saluatorian," missing out to Virginia Westling,
Valedictorian, by .003 of a point (according to Mr. Ball who computed the grades). I am
married to Kenneth Valdes, June class of 1953.

I checked the 1941 year, and saw my sisters photo and name among the June 1941 grads.
Her name is Margie Kennedy Keith and she was the Valedictorian of that class. She now
lives in Downingtown, PA.

Thanks for all you do.

friends. Some of the girls I liked in High School are now really good looking. The older you
get, the better looking you get, Right? I live in Sun City West, Arizona and love it!!!!! No more
snow or very cold weather. If you're ever in town, stop by.
Have a Wonderful time wherever you are!

I really enjoyed looking at all of the pictures of my classmates of the June 1946 class.
Sorry I missed most of the latest reunions. We have moved back to Wisconsin to be near
our family, now that we are both in our 80's. If there are anymore reunions, I would like to
be notified.

Thanks Donovan for this Great site,
Any January 1959 Juneau grad, we haven't had a full reunion since '69. We are in the early
stages of planning an informal get-together in spring to possibly plan greater things.
Anyone who was in the class at anytime is welcome. Contact me:   Gary Heiligenthal

Hello, My name is Valecia Carter but in school I was Valecia Harris, Class of 1989. I would
like to be informed of all things pertaining to Juneau Business HS & if I could purchase a
class of 1989 Yearbook?
This is so cool. I heard about it on THE VIEW this morning, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Graduated in 1966. Moved to Green Bay in 1979 and then to Seymour in 1991. Retired after
26.6 years at Koch Ind/Georgia Pacific aka Fort Howard aka Fort James. Spending a lot of
time just surfing through this site. Such memories. Thank you to whoever got this up and

Jacqueline Chojnacki - Mellom  1969

Graduated in 1969 and went into the Air Force, not a police officer - as stated next to my
name. I was looking to get a copy of diploma or a transcript of my high school records and
came across this website. Did not even know if the school was still there. I only recognize
a few people, Jay R., Jacqulynn C., Dee R. & Kathy Mather. How people change over the
years. Can you tell me where I can find these records?

Hello, I'm contacting you only because my mother Gloria Onarheim, her sister Joyce and
other sister Karen all graduated from Juneau in June of 1942, June of 1944 and June of

Gloria died in 1953, Joyce lives in Denver and has Alzheimers and Karen is in
Bloomington, MN and on the City Counsel there. I wouldn't mind if there's anyone that you
know of interested in contacting me.

Would love to get in touch with some of the old gang this year as I will be visiting northern
Wisconsin and Milwaukee. I now live in Hawaii on the island of Oahu, east side, in a small
town called Waimanalo. Any events coming up for the class of 69  between 10/8 and 12/4/13,
please let me know.

I was never sure what class I belonged to, as I had been a little 'In-Attentive' in my years at
Juneau and was held back in the 7th grade by Mr. Accomando. I then went to summer
school at Washington High School (Al Mueller went that summer also), just to catch up, so
I ended up with very good friends in both the '64 & '65 classes. I went to the last reunion
at the Bavarian Inn and the gathering the next day at Solomon Juneau High School. I
actually talked with Mr. Accomondo at the Reunion! A lot of very good memories from
those years. I went to Juneau from 7th through 12th grade. Back then 7th & 8th grade
called Junior High. My best friends were Richard ( Rich or Fred - don't ask me why )
Fermanian and Jeff Hamm. - both way more studious than I was. I guess now they would
say I had 'Attention Deficit Disorder' - - - mmmm maybe I still do. Also Al Barak, Diane
Andrews (now Fermanian), Kathy Kangas, ( now deceased from MS )  and many others. I
read all of the entries in the guestbook with interest. I was surprised at the last reunion
the number of people that attended from some of the very first Juneau graduating
classes. One of the facts that was brought up at the last reunion was that Juneau had
over 72,000 students over it's life as a Milwaukee HS. I'd love to hear from anyone from
that era! God bless all of the classes of Juneau High School.

One can only assume,  some of you have entered the time zone of no returns,  but
more likely on occasion finding yourselves looking back.
Perhaps back to the old neighborhoods;  streets slashed with tar that haven't been
asphalted over - big shady trees are nice - subdivided lots maybe not,
and my mothers next door neighbor living in the same house since 1950.
Here in Florida as of "99"  I survive despite current growing pot scum, but definitely
not setting the time by massaging and old shell that can at best inform,
"it's over Buddy" .  But not quite yet.  There must be more,  or maybe not.

With empathy for all of you Fellow Travelers,  once upon a time and the mind
numbing now, allow me to extend a bit of compassion,  a little regret,  but mostly
my best thoughts and good health to everyone, and to those before and after.

Thanks for building and maintaining the website.  I am January 1966 Graduate and stay in touch with a
few of my classmates.  But always interested in hearing from more of them.  My late brother Bob was a
couple years behind me.  I am retired and living in Stuart, FL, but have also lived in California,
Tennessee, Texas, Alabama, and Germany.  This is the third time I have lived in Florida.

Best wishes to you,

What a fun, memory walk site you've made.  It's so great.  My brother, Bob (grad '66), told me about it.  
Loved Marty's "When We Were Young"!  He nailed it on the trivia!!  I was there at Juneau all 6 years,
graduating 1968.  Can't ever forget my most embarrassing  moments  at Juneau, when I had to present the
class gift of the portrait of James Lovell at graduation.  Forgetting my memorized speech, and what
happened next which led the class in roaring laughter....
Good times!  If there is a 50 year reunion next year,...please make sure I know.  Would love to see those
'first crushes I ever had' again!

1st I would like to say that you have a great website for Juneau.I got out in 1966(but I was pushed back
from 1965) So I have 2 years of OLD pals! My dad was Gordon W Moll and he passed away last year
at 102...and he was in the 1st graduating class of Juneau. He was the oldest living Milwaukee Police office
in the state. Maybe that is something to add. Google him and read what the Milwaukee Journal and other
papers wrote about him if you like.

Some sad news, my cousin Mike Moll (1965) passed away a few years ago and he was a pal of Dave
Rodell as was I who also has passed. Mike was a loner and the family has keep it quite that he is now
gone. Maybe you can add his name on the In Memoriam page.

Keep up the great work, you have helped find some old pals, Jo Ann Weber and Jim Gitter to name a few.

Now it's time to go back to your site and rock and roll to Writ and Woky,,,,by the way I was in the
Broadcast Business for 45 years. At one point I was GM of the Old Wzuu radio....Rock on
