Alex Hughes - I have, finally, solved "The Great Mystery of 1961" - in the summer of 1960, My Dad moved My older sister and Myself to live with his fiance (she was 28 - Dad was 51). i started 9th Grade in Fontana at Fontana Junior High. Mr. Hughes taught Student Government and Civics there and signed My 1961 Yearbook "Ladle" (part of the steel-making process). I asked him to sign next to his photo. Found that yearbook today, Jan. 9, 2021 (Joan Baez's 80th B-Day) published 60 years back! He was an excellent teacher, I let the teachers I enjoyed sign, very likeable and gave respect where respect was given. I read that He started his Claremont Career in 1966 - I believe He left the Fontana School District after 1964.smiley

Rolland Withrow (1969)

A great Principal, particularly for one so young in years.  His support of the music and athletic programs at CHS was much appreciated.  I knew he'd died, but find it hard to process that it has been over 30 years that he's been gone.  RIP, Alex and thanks for your encouragement back in the day.
