  • I didn't really go to school with him. But Vinnie Testerverdi (don't know how to spell his name...he's an athlete) lived next door to my babysitter. My mom and his mom worked together. I remember when he became famous the town threw a parade for him. It was kind of cool.

  • I went to school with Jenna Von Oy. She played the character Six on "Blossom." Not REALLY famous but I guess it was exciting for a kid. She was in my brothers grade though, two grades ahead of me.

  • My brother-in-law graduated high school with Mariah Carey. The same school that my mother went to, Harbor Field High School. Mariah has said that she was teased and treated badly, because she was mixed. Tommy (BIL) said that no one even knew that she was mixed, because she looked so white. That Mariah . . . always trying to get attention, now she just barely wears any clothes for attention. I liked her so much better before she started acting crazy and slutty.

Hugh Liedtke (the founder of Penzoil Oil), Tony Peyton (Original member Harlem Globtrotters) and the list goes on... I guess Texas (especially Midland Texas) does grown em big.... LOL

  • The movie "Remember the Titans" was filmed at my high school, during my graduation year, half of the students were extra's in the stands during the football scenes! But that is about all!
