Memorable_teachers:
Ms. Bush - She was unwilling to allow her students to settle for mediocrity. She cared about me maximizing my potential as a student and as a person. She had my back when I almost got expelled. I respect her as a person and as a teacher.
Mr. McElroy - He single handedly was responsible for my mathmatical epiphany, showing me that math had little to do with numbers and much more to do with relationships. Despite the fact I nearly had to box him in pre-calculus class my senior year I maintain a great deal of respect for his approach to teaching.
Ms. Bakus - Despite Encina's reputation for not providing academically competitive curriculm, Ms. Bakus spearheaded an effort that provided the
opportunity for students such as myself to take college chemistry at Encina, giving me a 5 unit head start upon entering college.
Favorite_memory: Overcoming haters' numerous attempts to stop what I had moving at the time.
Story: My album,The R.I.VAL will be in stores early July. Listen for the first single B.D.I. on 103.5 and 102.5.

Memorable_teachers: Mrs. Bush-She was the coolest,badest,straightforward,sarcastic, caring teacher I had. I had her Sophomore & Senior "Honors English" year. She called us Panzies! Mrs. Bush & I did not always see eye to eye but she never backed down and always made me explain myself completely, until we did see eye to eye. I will always thank her for that!
Mr.Wallin- Student Government advisor and a great person!
Mrs. Motter-(technically she was a counsler) She is an amazing woman and got me through my senior year, somewhat sain.
Mr. Luchini-(hope I spelled it right....its been a few years!) He was our class advisor and really worked w/ us. As a teacher he also drove me succeed (that was rough for me my senior year) Eric Dahlin-just because of his humor, he could turn a bad day into a funny one(at least for that period)
Favorite_memory: Too many. 4 years of memories-good and bad! I dont know about favorite, but the riot sure does stand out!!!!
Story: Interesting stories? Oh yea, there are plenty of them.....but i'm not writing anything! Lips sealed, eyes closed, ears shut! Some stories might still get people in trouble!

Occupation: Freelance film maker, cable show producer
Bio: Since graduation I have had a number of jobs. I still didnt really know what I wanted to do in life. I started off graduation by leaving Sacramento
to join the California Conservation Corps. Due to a family sickness I returned to help out my mother who is Suffering from multiple mylenoma. A
year after it was in remission I moved to Seattle to become a commercial fisherman. I was out on the Bering Sea for four months but boy was it rough! After my first (and last) commercial fishing trip I moved back to Sacramento and decided I would call it home from now on. I have had many interesting jobs which are too numerous to list. But I have found my niche producing and starring on my own cable show on Sacramento Public Access on cable. I have now written and starred in over 300 skits. I have met many people and have made numerous friends doing it and I still plan on doing it for quite some time.
Friends: Arthur Redoble, we are like brothers.
Hobbies: Filming, painting, creating computer animation.
Story: Its just funny how many people used to know me as "Beavis" or "Butt-head". Those name didn't carry on after high-school but it had an

Occupation: CEO of a Fortune 500 Company. Seriously.
Bio: What have I been doing? Loafing, mostly. I did the six-year plan at Sac State immediately after graduation. I finally got a B.A. (in Philosophy)
last year (May, 2002). Partying, working, and languishing kind of got in the way my first two years. Much to my dismay and surprise, a Philo degree
didn't attract many job offers. So, I did what any self-respecting philosopher would have done--I forsook philosophy and pursued a law degree.
I moved to St. Louis in August, and I'm now in my second semester at Saint Louis University. Only four more semesters to go! With the huge debt I'll
have amassed by the time I graduate, I'll be fortunate just to stay slightly above the poverty line. Education schmeducation. All I really want to do is
lead a simple life raising sheep and tending to a vegetable garden somewhere in a green pasture. Life isn't meant to be wasted anxiously toiling away in a stuffy office around doped-up cogs. Hm. Maybe Rio Linda isn't so bad after all?
Trivia: I can grow a beard.
Friends: Phil Altstatt, Jesse Baggs, Shane Killgore, and Ryan Lynn. "The [self-appointed] cool but smart guys." Oh, and Del Baeuroo-scooby-doo. I've lost contact with all but Jesse.
Grade_school: Warren A. Allison, Hayden Lake (Coeur d'Alene, ID), Green Oaks, Trinity, Coyle Avenue, Alta Vista (Auburn, CA), Greer, and Woodlake. Yeah, that's right . . . I got around.
Grade_school_friends: Phil Altstatt, Joey Hernandez, Kambiz Kaka-something-or-other, the DoPorto Twins, probably others.
Junior_high: Rio Tierra.
Junior_high_friends: Phil, Jesse, Shane, Ryan, Joey, etc.
Memorable_teachers: Mr. McElroy, of course, because of the time he said: "Has anybody seen Phil? If you see him, tell him to get his butt in here."
(It was the way he said it. You had to be there.) And, because he'd, purportedly, raise your grade if you stapled a bag of Corn Nuts to your homework. Evidently, he really liked nuts and butts. Eric Dahlin is memorable, too. I don't think I've called a teacher/instructor/professor a bastard (to his/her face) since taking Eric's ceramics class. Yeah, he's a legend.
Favorite_memory: Oh wow. I'd have to say the very last time I set foot on the campus as a student there is my favorite memory. Most of the teachers
were horrendous and inept, and most of the students were ne'er-do-wells. No offense, though.

Occupation: Painter/General Maintenance
Bio: After graduation, I attended the University of Brigham Young, in Utah.  After that, I spent two years in the Dominican Republic on a mission for my church.  I then returned home in May of 2000 and started working as a painter and doing general maintenance for a property management company.  I then met my wife to be in August of 2000, and we were married on April 8, 2001.  I still work for the same company and am attending American River College in preperation to tranfer to Sac State soon.

Memorable_teachers: My most memorable teachers is hard to say.  Almost all my teachers made a lasting impression on me.  On the top, I would have to say Dennis Wallin, Susan Bush, Mr. Luchini and Mr. Freedman.  Like I said, I enjoyed all my teachers, but these four taught me the most.  Mrs. Bush for always being willing to chat with us students, and just had a personality that I feel brought out the best.   Mr. Wallin for being a great Student Activities Director in Student Government.   He guided me well in my term as ASBP and was always willing to help us whatever he could.  Mr. Freedman for being a good club advisor, whose humer made math and physics fun.  Also Mr. Luchini for being the best class advisor I think there ever will be.   He put up with us, he taught us, he supported us, and he was a true mentor.   
Favorite_memory: All four years of Encina were great memories.  My favorite memories mostly involve Student Government Acivities.  The rallies, carnivals, BBQ's and more, I feel that the Encina was just one big memory that I will always love.
