Class Memories From 1956

I don't remember the exact year of the Tehachapi earthquake
but I remember returning to school the next year to find that the majestic main school building was condemed. Not being a 'townie' I was filled with awe and wonder at it's
cavernous hallways and spacious rooms. With two floors, it was a huge concrete structure with basement areas for a rifle range and other activities.
I, like 100's of others attended school until I graduated in 1956, in the "chicken coops" temporarily built to accomodate we students. I remember watching with a sense of loss as they tore down the old building that had stood there for so many years.
But I have pictures and memories of the old Porterville High school building to refer to now and then.

Who could forget Coleman's Steak Sandwich with cheese. I used to get one every time I was through Porterville. I
recently heard they can't be had any longer. Chuck Bailey

I have fond and vivid memories O Mr. Alfred Wilenious (sp?)
He came to my home while I was recuperating from a car accident in 1952 and tutored me personally to keep me up
with my classes. He was a firm and knowing teacher and needless to say, being one on one with him, I received
straight "A's" under his tutilage. He also kept me informed
as to school activities and would bring me messages from
some of the students at school.
An indellible memory! Chuck Bailey
