What Highline Means To Me…
By Kayla Maria Sua, Winner of the Emily Nishimura Scholarship, 2009 (Attends WSU)
Throughout my four years at Highline High School I have been surrounded by a very diverse community. Each of my classes consists of every race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and religious belief. What I have also come to learn is that diversity is powerful. Each student’s differences are what make them unique and memorable. Being educated with such a diverse group of people has left any type of discrimination very narrow in my eyes. I learn from my peers’ beliefs and feel that being engulfed in a classroom with so many perspectives different from my own is what helps me to become an open-minded individual in a very complex society. Take a look at myself. I am a Samoan girl who takes almost straight AP classes and dedicates a substantial amount of time to power lifting. Certainly I don’t fit the stereotype of the “mindless athletic” Samoan or the idea that it is uncanny for a girl to be stronger than a guy. However, I love every aspect of myself because it’s what distinguishes me from a crowd. My high school experience has taught me that it’s okay to be different. It has left me with a notion that every person is equal and no one’s voice should be subdued. Black, white, male, female, Jewish, Christian, gay, lesbian, or anything else I have failed to mention all hold equal rights in my mind. Essentially, diversity holds a high importance to my educational experience. Not only does it teach me differences in others’ beliefs, cultures and upbringings; but it helps me to grow as an individual. It helps me to see beyond the preconceived stereotypes that Asians are conceptually good at math or every black person is an amazing athlete, and instead take the time to talk to a person before developing any inclination as to who they are. After all, it’s never good to judge a book by its cover. Highline High School has given me this outlook and every day I am honored to be a part of the school.
What Highline Means To Me…
By Derek Erickson, Winner of the Turnaround Scholarship, 2009 (Attends UW)
What Highline means to me cannot be described in words. Highline is the home of endless memories, both the good and the bad; everything from the freshman assembly and being completely overwhelmed to the hard-fought battles on the football field Friday nights. Highline has also been a gateway to meeting new people; friends, best friends, mentors, role models, and even employers. Highline has also helped to shape me as an individual - being challenged, teaching me strong work ethics, and forcing me into uncomfortable situations, all of which have helped me grow. What Highline means to me…everything.
WHAT HIGHLINE MEANS TO ME…FROM THE 1930 PIRATE LOG…
A school in which the faculty, the pupils, the spirit, everything, - is above the average. I certainly congratulate myself on my good luck in having been able to attend Highline four years. - Virgil Frazier, Pres. Student Body
Always just enough work to make the pleasures seem more enjoyable. Not only has Highline brought me both of these, but in her halls and classrooms I’ve found friends that I’ll not forget. There’s a happy combination of schoolwork and activities – Board of Control – class and club functions, plays, dances and Hi-Y.
I can’t forget how, at the end of a summer vacation I was always rather glad to get back again – to meet the old “gang” at the radiator in the assembly-to have football games-plays-Proms and good times. I’d just like to say, then, that the years at Highline have been, and probably will always be, one of the most pleasant periods of my life. – Elliott Higgins, Senior Rep. To Board of Control
Friendship and companionship with the students of Highline are the two things that I have valued most highly during my four short but pleasant years spent at Highline.
The peppy meetings of the Student Body have expressed the real backing of every student and it has been a pleasure to take part in them – for after all, as our elders say – school days are the happiest days of our life. – Arthur Nelson, Sec. Student Body
Successful Past Scholarship Winners Making Us Proud!
From Tyler Todd Kimmel, Winner Music Dept. Scholarship, 2007…
Thus far in my music experience I have been studying vocal performance as part of my music education degree. Through pursuing my degrees I have been exposed to world-class instruction and incredible music. Some of the musical and opera productions I have been in are Brigadoon, The Bartered Bride, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. This spring I will be in the opera La Boheme with Pepperdine’s Opera Department. Through Pepperdine's Opera Department I have also had the opportunity to study abroad in Heidelberg, Germany for two summers, once in 2008 and again in the summer of 2009.Studying abroad in Germany has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and I attribute these trips and being in these many productions to enhancing my knowledge of how to teach and write music, which is what I would like to do after school.
I would like to thank the Alumni Foundation again for the scholarship awarded to me my senior year of high school. Pepperdine is a costly institution and I am very grateful for what I have received, however, I feel so incredibly blessed to be at Pepperdine and have realized that no amount of money could buy what I have experienced there; it’s priceless. Thank you for everything and Happy New Year. – Awesome, Tyler!
From Jeff Hammond, Recipient of Social Studies Scholarship, 1999

According to our 2000 database we have Highline grads living locally in WashingtonState from Aberdeen to Zillah. Nationally, grads reside from Abbeville, Alabama to Wheatland, Wyoming and on the International map, from Brazil to Switzerland and all points in between. In the last ten years this has undoubtedly changed. We'd appreciate being updated to assist you with classmate contacts and reunion planning. Over the past few years we've had many grads trying to locate others from HighlineHigh School. Hopefully we can assist you; but be assured we only give out your phone numbers with your directive and then allow the person being sought to make the contact. Under no circumstances will our database go beyond your class representative/reunion committee, unless you personally grant permission.
Help us serve your High School by keeping us informed of your address, phone or e-mail changes. Most importantly, please join the Alumni Foundation today. Your $10.00 membership donation will help our fund maintain the many scholarships (sixteen last year) awarded to deserving HighlineHigh School students. Thank you to the 620 of you that have come on board as lifetime members.
We are happy to receive memorial donations and have received large amounts in the memory of Dick Dahlgard, Class of 1954, and former business teacher Nancy Tully. Also, it's good to remember that some employers will contribute matching funds for an individual's donation to the scholarship fund.Check the website for details - www.highline-highschool-alumni-foundation.org

“A" TEAM "A" Team performing for you - the Alumni Foundation of Highline High School. Their heroics make possible the awarding of numerous scholarships to deserving graduating seniors at our Alma Mater, scholarships that now include most departments within the school curriculum and six significant scholarships honoring special efforts (this latter group assisted by some funding from individuals).
Who makes up this "A" team? : JOANNE PEASE '70 (VP) and her close assistant Berta Keller '86 organize the All-Class reunion and offer much-needed input. MARTHA BROCK '58 (Sec) not only contributes beautiful minutes of each meeting but also manages much computer updating for several years’ classes and conveys information of upcoming meetings. SCOTT SALZER '71 (Trea) manages our accounts, taking in funds and dispersing monies to each institution of the scholarship recipient, plus miscellaneous payments. He also receives all communications through our P.O. box and directs them to the appropriate member. GARY KORSGAARD '64 and SALLY NEWTON '70 (members-at-large) take on many tasks. Gary heads up our participation in the annual Burien July 4th parade. Sally serves on the golf tournament committee doing many tasks there, and also contributes her computer skills toward maintaining our data base. MICHELE MILLER '78 (coordinator of the Alumni Soundings) does a fantastic job of pulling articles, pictures, schedules, and facts together, then transmitting the corrected, much-improved writings on to KEVIN OSTIC '71 (web master) who maintains the Alumni web page. His skillfulness provides a great source of information to all who visit the site. BERNITA KEEFER '60 (historian) is keeping all this in several note books and including some news items about Highline grads. Two Foundation members really influence the success of our organization: CATHY LOW '67 (membership) is our main keeper of memberships, the amount collected yearly, updating of class lists. She also serves on the golf committee (doing most everything before, during, and after) and providing classes with lists for reunions and on and on... PATTI BURGESS '50 (scholarship chairperson) handles all applications and arrangements for selecting scholarship winners, working closely with the departments and counselors at the high school. She is an active non-golfer making the tournament a huge social and economic success.
Lastly, BETTY CARTER '45 (official parliamentarian) keeps us on an even keel making certain we follow the correct procedures and has reigned in many contributions to our golf tournament and auctions.
This "A" team has made this position by far the easiest of all. Each officer represents their class and adds spice to the meetings. They could use your unused, mildewing talents. Your help would be much appreciated. Again, these people, along with several class representatives "do it all". Calling a meeting or seeking assistance is a snap. Thanks to each for giving your Highline High School Alumni Foundation a great start, much success, and a bright future.... - Howard Call, Alumni President
A MESSAGE FROM HIGHLINE PRINCIPAL MIKE FOSBERG
Dear HHS Alumni
Greetings from HighlineHigh School.I hope this newsletter finds you and your family happy, healthy and excited for springtime!Below are some highlights from Pirate Nation:
1,372 – number of students attending HHS during the 09-10 school year.Our freshman and sophomore classes make up nearly 800 of this total.
13 – number of principals HHS has had in its history, including me.This is my third year as principal at Highline.
6 – number of National Board Certified Teachers.Teachers who earn this certificate go through a rigorous year of study.Current staff with National Board Certification are Ms. Carinna Tarvin, Social Studies/Language Arts; Ms. Cherie Clymer, Math; Ms. Shari Oberg, Language Arts; Ms. Gwen Riles, ELL Facilitator; Ms. Jacque Decker, Language Arts; and Ms. Alanah Baron, Language Arts.
500 –number of copies purchased of the novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie.The transition from 8th grade to 9th grade is a stressful time for many of our new students.This year, we implemented a support system to increase the academic and social success of our 9th graders.Besides instituting a freshman novel (and in-class discussion of it), we had an opening day, freshman only assembly; a 9th grade day-long trip to Camp Waskowitz to set goals and build advisory relationships; a focus on a habit of work—organization, and a habit of mind—perspective; and a field trip to the University of Washington for all 9th graders to expose them to “college life”.(If you haven’t read the book, you should check it out at your local library.)
54 – number of seniors who attended a recent FAFSA night at HHS to complete their on-line financial aid application.The district vision of preparing all students for college, career, and citizenship shapes all of the work we do before, during, and after the school day.
23 – the date in April that our Booster Club will be holding their first annual Auction and Dinner.The theme is “All Hands on Deck” and the location is the Normandy Park Cove.If you are interested in attending, or can donate in-kind items, please contact Royce Badley, Academic Dean, or Jerry Bamburg, Athletic Director, at 206.631.6700.
2 – number of Act Six Scholarship winners.Congratulations to Devanta Black and Hodo Hussein who will be attending Gonzaga University and Pacific Lutheran University, respectively, on full-ride scholarships.
26.8 – percent of Hispanic students at HHS, our largest growing sub group of students.
4 – number of small learning communities at HHS (TERRA, Renaissance, Discovery, and Global Business and Marketing) created four years ago to provide personalization and relevant learning experiences for our students.
17 – number of $2,500 scholarships the HHS Alumni Foundation funded for our class of 2009 graduating seniors.THANK YOU FOR YOUR TREMENDOUS FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF OUR STUDENTS!!
57 – percent of AVID 2008-09 seniors who are now attending a four year college (27 of 28 currently attend some sort of college).AVID is a relatively new program to HHS that supports students with a 2.0-3.5 GPA, mostly minority, and usually first in family to attend college.Students and their families commit to a rigorous academic program. In return, we offer them coursework focusing on college aware and college eligible experiences, with a guarantee that all students will be accepted to a four year university by the spring of their senior year.
6.3 –number of tons of garbage hauled away from HHS each month.This year, HHS is “going green”.A new recycling club has been established.We are working closely with King County Solid Waste to establish waste reducing practices.Printer friendly tip sheets, blue recycling tubs in all classrooms, and a share table in the cafeteria are just a few of the ways we are working on our goal of reducing the amount of garbage by 50%--which would save the district about $1,000 a month!
46 – number of years Dave Craig, Business Teacher, has taught at HighlineHigh School . . . and still going strong!
20/21 – dates in May that seniors will be presenting their senior culminating project.They present to panels of teachers and community members.It is a great opportunity to find out the topics that our students are passionate and curious about.If you would like to volunteer to serve on these panels, please contact Janis Maracic, Assistant Principal, at 206.631.6700.
I look forward to our continued partnership to help all of our students reach their current potential.Please don’t hesitate to call with any questions or suggestions at 206.631.6700.

The Class of 1949’s 60th Reunion was held on September 20, 2009 at the Double Tree Suites in the Summit Room located in South Center. It was a great place to hold our reunion and the staff was so easy to work with.
About six months ahead of time we started calling people in our class to see if they were interested in even having a reunion and that really helped to get people there. Also, it was fun to do, especially talking to those that were unable to attend. We had a good showing with 65 people in attendance.
Our M.C. Jerry Knighton, did an excellent job with his jokes and going around the room with the “mike” asking people questions.
The buffet meal was very good, consisting of salmon, chicken, wild rice, crispy vegetables, two salads, rolls, coffee, tea, and apple crisp.
We received many good comments and several people wanted us to have another reunion soon. We will see about that!

Class of ’79, 30-year Reunion:Our successful event was held on Oct. 10, 2009 at the Rainier Golf & Country Club.

We had dancing after dinner with the Uncle Ernie Band (Tim Clark class of 1978). We had the place decorated with the original Highline Banner and lettermans jackets from classmates and purple and gold flowers on the white linen tables. We had class pictures from all the different grade schools that fed into Highline on display. Our name tags even had our picture from our annual on them! Our Friday night event was held at Mick Kelly's in Burien and was heavily attended with Vital Signs Band playing (Marcus Rendoni class of 1978). It was a lot of fun!

2010 ALUMNUS OF THE YEAR
Our fourth Alumnus of the Year Award goes to 1954 graduate Bill Odekirk. Born in Myton, Utah, as the last of eight children, Bill eventually migrated to the Seattle area via Fresno, West Seattle and now Kent where he resides with his wife of 54 years, Carole. Father of two boys and two girls, six grandkids and three great-grandchildren, he finds time in retirement to write, dream, work at his computer, and do some bird watching. In fact, his travels have taken him to Australia, Alaska, and all over the US, seeking a glimpse of birds. After several different labor efforts, Bill put together his own company, Ode Products, which markets original rain gutter clamps and brackets. The company, now run by his son, ships these parts all over the United States. He developed definite philosophies and common sense along the way and began writing some of those philosophical thoughts down. His common sense thoughts soon became a daily endeavor and today are reflected, along with some poetry, in his book Tracking My Soul which traces his heritage from way back. Mickey Moose, the family’s 23-pound dog, keeps Bill in tow and provides companionship as Bill pursues his hobbies – birds, poetry, diary, and computer skills. From his computer is a growing Highline High School history of graduates over the years. Log on to the Bill Odekirk Highline Alumni Projectwww.Highlinealumni.com to view several years of students from our Alma Mater. You can be included in this project if you wish. Congratulations to Bill Odekirk for leading the Class of 1954 and for his loyalty and work. - Howard Call
