 When Woodrow Wilson opened to students in 1963, we were the first three classes in the door.  Some of us were coming from other high schools and others directly from Jr high school, but we all became a family because we had to.  We all voted on what our mascot - The Roman Warrior; colors - Green and Gold; and newspaper - The Centurion should be.  Since that time  we have tried to stay close to some of our friends but many of us have moved to places all across the US and the world.  Five years ago we got the idea to have a reunion of those first three classes, the first students to attend Wilson.  It was very successful and we had a wonderful time that night in 2005.  We repeated that same reunion in 2010.  In 2015 it will be the 50th reunion for the '65 class, the 51st for the '64 class and the 49th for the '66 class.  We celebrate together so it will be considered the 50th reunion for all of us.   We hope that whoever is viewing this website will be sure to attend the reunion.  Information will be sent out early in 2015 so everyone can make plans and reservations to attend.  Please join us for a great time.

In 1996 Woodrow Wilson's doors were closed.  We're not sure why they would close a newer school as opposed to one of the really old ones but that's what happened.  Since then it has been reopened as The Phillip and Sala Burton Academic High School.  Even though Woodrow Wilson no longer exists in reality, it will exist forever in our hearts.

Woodrow Wilson High School Hymn

 On a hill near the bay
Shining bright in the sun
Stands a giant leader
Now known for deeds well done.

 We're the Roman Warriors
Always brave and bold
With our shield and banners
All made of green and gold.

 Send your voice to the sky
Hear our mighty cry
Loyalty forever
Hail, all hail, Woodorw Wilson High!

This photo was taken, as I recall, on board one of those covered Coaxain's Boats.

This was just after i had completed a week end working in the Torpedo Shop on the Sub Tender USS Sperry or USS Nereus.

Another Reservist from my Submarine Reserve Unit, TM2(SS) Ruiz. I believe, snapped this photo.  He was a photographer by trade, as I recall.

He took the photo as we were returning to shore from the tender, which was moored out in the water at Fort Roscrans, Ballast Point Submarine Base, San Diego, California.
