Welcome to our site dedicated to the Torrance High School Class of 1972.

Hello Class of 72,

For those unaware, there is a fantastic effort underway to celebrate THS's 100th Anniversary.  On September 11, 1917, Torrance High School opened its doors for the first time.  Since then, thousands of students like ourselves have spent their high school years at our remarkable school.  It seems unbelievable that we graduated almost 45 years ago (see below)!

Go to http://torrancehighcentennial.com/ for more information about the Centennial Celebration.  There you can join a mailing list and sign up for updates on events that will be taking place during the upcoming year.  Below is the most recent email I've received regarding a book project to highlight our Alma Mater.

40 Year Reunion?

Believe it or not, 2017 also represents the year that our 45th Class Reunion should be held.  As those who attend know, we've had some fantastic parties every five years since graduating, missing only one during our 15th that turned out to be a small picnic.

I have received several inquiries in the past couple of months as to whether I will be organizing it or not.  Unfortunately, Jeanne and I have moved to Texas.  I also plan to retire at the end of this year which will limit my ability to routinely fly into town in order to properly plan the event.  I can't speak for the the rest of those who have helped create our fantastic reunions for the past 25 years, but I myself will not be able to act as the Chairman for the 45th.  I will, however, be more than glad to continue on with email communications, class directory database, and website updating for anyone willing to take the lead.  It's probably going to take somebody currently living in or near Torrance to negotiate group hotel reservations and secure a venue for the event.  I think I can speak for Monte, Theresa, Scott, and Jana -- that we would all be more than willing to answer any questions you might have on how previous reunions were organized, and to assist you as we are able.  But for this particular reunion anyway, someone else will have to step up and take the lead.

Those interested are welcome to contact me and I'll be glad to give you the initial advice on how to get this all logistically started and the ways I'll be able to help you promote it online. 

As I've been doing since our 20th, I'll continue to keep the class updated on all matters concerning our class.  Please keep your contact information updated, and encourage the fellow classmates that you stay in touch with to do the same
