I don't knock it; I just can't get with it. ,I love musicals, plays and concerts!

Biography: I grew up in Compton, California. I attended El Segundo Elementary school, Vanguard Jr. High, and graduated from Centennial High in 1975.

What was your fondest memory @ the Ten?
Laughing with everybody! And I mean EVERYBODY!

What have you been up to since the Ten?
I married in 1977. My husband, Bernard Bender, graduated from Centennial in 1974. We have five children. Bernard passed away in 1988. I thank God for my sanity! He has kept me safe in His arms! My children have been my occupation until my youngest son turned 18! I thank God for his direction in raising them!

I thank God that they are all well and in their right mind! I thank God that they are all His responsibility now, and not mine. I praise God that I have been able to let all five of them "fly" on their own!

Now.... I'm living my life like it's Golden!!! I'm taking my time and smelling each rose, one at a time, while sip'n on a good fresh cup of coffee!!!!
