Eureka High School Graduates

Our Class...

Many of us have traveled the globe. We see that there is a much broader world beyond the borders of Eureka. But at the time we were finishing off our high school education, many of us had no idea of the opportunities that awaited us. 

Unfortunately, our teachers did not prepare us for the great unknown. Was it because they had not been anywhere or done anything, or was it because they felt we would never step foot outside our comfort zone. 

All of that is speculation now. But, the reality is that we had classmates that ventured to and never returned alive from Vietnam. Others of us became news anchors, ministers, engineers, city officials, builders, teachers, artists, editors, quilters, business owners, entrepreneurs,  and so much more.
