Welcome to our site dedicated to the Torrance High School Class of 1972.
Hello Class of 72,
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?
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.
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.
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.
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
