Alumni Stories

To view the rest of your Homestead High School Classmates you must first

Sam Shankle

Class of 1972

I received my periodic email from Alumni I thought I'd look at some of the Alumni Stories. Hey! There aren't any. I was probably the most shy and boring student on campus. Surely there must be some stories to tell? Perhaps something brief about me will inspire you all you guys to write something. I often wonder what became of everyone.

As I said, I was really shy in high school so I had a pretty tiny circle of friends. I remember all those wonderful girls that were so friendly and I could never think of anything intelligent to say to them, much less ask them out. I looked on the Find Classmates to see if I could find any info on Jan, Becky, Sue or Karen. Nothing!!

So I retired 3 years ago from working at Lick Observatory for 25 years. Started as an electrician, worked up into management and ended as doing both due to funding cuts. I've been married to my wonderful wife since 1980 and have two sons. We live on an old ranch with my oldest son and his young family. I'm really enjoying being retired and stay quite busy work on the ranch.

Would love to hear about what you guys are doing.
