Encina High School Class of 1998 homepage


10 Year Reunion

I am Crystal Wilson-Sostre and I am the host for our 10 year reunion.

I am trying to establish a budget for this event. How many of the alumni are willing to pay for a ticket to the reunion? I would like to have a memorable event, perhaps an outdoor dinner with a bar tender. This would come at a cost of about $60 per person. Your spouse would also be $60. This is approximately the cost for an outdoor event and is subject to change.

If our class turn out is too small and we do not sell enough tickets for me to book an event, I will plan a smaller event at a local restaurant in Sacramento. Please consider how you would like to celebrate your 10 year reunion. I will also be inviting our favorite teachers and coaches. I will need your response ASAP if you are interested in purchasing a ticket, or if you are interested in a smaller dinner. All suggestions are welcome!!

Eric Britt Romani
Erik Britt Romani, born and raised in Sacramento, died unexpectedly on July 4, 2020, soon after hosting his own 40th birthday party in March. He attended Encina High School and American River College before joining the Coast Guard (20012009) where he discovered his love of the ocean and honed his mechanical skills. Working for the Army Corps of Engineers in Sausalito, as an engineer, small craft operator and diver for the last 10 years, he excelled and found the perfect fit using his creative and mechanical abilities while working on the water. Recently, he was awarded 2020 SF District USACE Operations and Readiness Employee of the Year. Erik leaves behind so many who will miss him, including his adorable daughter Nell Coco Romani and wife Charlotte King Romani of New Zealand; parents Kathy and Larry Rodriguez and Fred Romani; brother Brett Romani; stepsister Julie Green; stepbrother Tony Rodriguez; aunt and uncle Peter and Debbie Romani; cousins Anthony Romani, Kristen Romani, Lindsey Romani Pegg, and Mike Romani; and many other relatives and friends. Erik most of all loved his daughter Nell, his family, his friends, and his dog Britt. He found enjoyment tackling new projects, being on the ocean, riding his electric bike to work over the Golden Gate, paddle boarding and car and motorcycle racing. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private memorial will be held. To Plant Memorial Trees in memory, please visit our Sympathy Store.

Occupation: Sound tech, bass player, mom
Bio: I moved at the end of sophomore year (96) and got into a little trouble...went to a continuation school and a few independent study programs...for 97-98 year, went to Johnson (main) but dropped out when work became more important. I wish I would have stayed at Encina the whole time.
Trivia: I had a baby in 2000. He's awesome, the love of my life.
Friends: My closest friends were actually from elementary school (Edison) and some went to Encina....Katie Mensch, David Cullen, Greg Ramirez, Justin Coletti, Whalen Sweat, Shawna Clement, Damon Purdy, DeRon Muldrew, Steven Stuart, Yared Berhane...there's probably a few I forgot! Others I met at Encina that I enjoyed talking to were Keith Thompson, Steven Peeler, Crystal Wilson, Kathleen Boomgarden...and more that I'm forgetting, I'm sure. Most likely those I didn't go to Edison with don't remember me. I wasn't very cool or popular in high school. I haven't really kept in contact with anyone :(
Hobbies: I play bass a few times a week at church, I'm part of high school staff (church), I do a lot of sound/mixing (yup...at church). I'm into
kickboxing, road trips, photography and being goofy with my son.
Kids: My son, Justin was born Nov 19, 2000. He is SUPER funny! He's very smart. He tells me he wants to be a race car driver when he grows up! Then he'll say he wants to be a gymnast...it changes a lot, but it always comes back to a race car driver.
Grade_school: Thomas Edison...our school mascot was a light bulb...we were the "Electrifics" how rad is that! I LOVED Edison...I had so much fun
there...I was popular, I had lotts of friends and my teachers were super!
Grade_school_friends: Damon Purdy, DeRon Muldrew, Katie Mensch, Shawna Clement, Dave Cullen, Yared Berhane, Boyan Tassev (I think he went to Encina), Greg Ramirez, Whalen Sweat, Justin Coletti, Steven Stuart, Yared Berhane...
Junior_high: Arden Middle School! That's when things started getting weird! I was not very "cool"
Junior_high_friends: I think Whalen Sweat went to Arden...and I think Roderick Gay went there also...I don't remember! I'll have to look it up..maybe.
Memorable_teachers: From Encina...Mr Bonds....Mrs Duke...They were both teachers who really cared about thier students and really wanted them to do well.
Alumni_in_contact: Ryan Andrejeski (93 haven't talked to him in a while). Matt Nigro(93 went to Ireland in 97 I think...haven't seen him since)

Occupation: Currently I am a Sergeant at International Security Services working at the County of Sacramento for Child Protective Services. I am also currently working on Illustrations for a book to be Published (with luck…) as well as dabbling with Web Page Designs… though I am self Teaching myself that so they are not too great yet.
Bio: Since Graduating from Encina I attended ARC for a while studying Art and Anthropology but sadly I had to drop out of school for now. When I moved out of my Mother and Grandmothers place, they some how managed to move in with me, so I am supporting them for a while still. I am working as a Security Officer for CPS as well as doing some odd little jobs like web pages, illustrations, graphics, and some paintings. Yep! Still painting and *I* feel I am getting… er better? Alright so my confidence is still low but I enjoy it and have sold a few peaces. Other then that, I’ve not done much with my life. Sad hmm?
Trivia: Something Interesting? Well I tried out for the Sacramento Sirens Professional Woman’s Football Team. I MADE the Team too! Nose guard Tackle, D-line! Sadly my job decided to change my shift to something that paid more (the pay is a good thing thought!) and I had to with draw from the team. I am currently still connected with them and am going to try again next year. The Sacramento Sirens were Undefeated Last Season and are the Nation Champs!
Friends: I didn’t have a “best” friend. I hardly had any friends at all. The closest person I could call a Best Friend would be Jon Larson (99) but lost
contact with him too. Hell I lost contact with –everyone-. Just to name a few people I was acquainted with and lost contact with… Steven Marshal
(Pinky!), Yared Berhane, Andrew McPike, Klinton Halliday, Olga Rodriguez, Miguel Medina-Reyes, Crystal Wilson, Ann Young, Eliza Young, Crystal Woods, Teresa Kirkpatrick, Jackie Cone, Kem Cockrell, David Cullen, David Cisneros, Corey (?), Ramona Brizzee, Thomas Yancy, Jonathan Hargis, Chad Crall, Donnie Moore, Damon Purdy, Carlos Chavez, Keith Thompson, Melissa Hawkins,Manuel Santiago, Steve Peeler,.. others. As i said... I had few close friends but many acquaintances.
Hobbies: I’ve been dabbling in many different art forms lately, form oil painting to rock sculpture, photography, animation, computer graphics, CGI,
marker sketching, charcoal, water colors and more. Art and Design are still my hobbies. As well as a bit of Fantasy writing.
Kids: Kids? Ha. Oh, yes, Please ignore the calls of help from behind that closet door *shifty eyed* But really… No kids. Though… I have two Cats… you can consider them my kids.
Grade_school: Dyer Kelly Dragons (K-4th) and Creekside Cougars (4th-6th)
Junior_high: Jonas Sulk Hawks (7-8)
Mrs. Bush – I despised English at first, and I have never been very good at it, But Mrs. Bush made things fun and I might have struggled but I DID love that class. She is an Inspiration.
Mr. Stevens (and Susan Adan his wife) – Two more Inspirations. Mike Stevens and his Beautiful wife Susan were such great supports for me in School. They opened doors for me into the world of Art. I don’t think I will –ever- forget them.
Eric Dalhin (and his Intern? Jaills) – Mitch, Chicken Lips, Princess, Hamster Lips… lordy the names. But his class was fun and I almost always
left laughing. I think I would have gone insane if I wasn’t in his classes. Jaills, for the year he was there, was easy to give a hard time, and gullibl
e but he was priceless and –always- encouraging. He saw talent even in the dumbest peace of work. Again two more of my life’s inspirations.
Mrs. Reaves (Harris) – Choir and Freshmen Drama! Those were always fun classes. And I had the pleasure of working with her again at ARC when she replaced our Professor for a year. That was wonderful.
Mrs. Johnson – I never has a class with her, but she was wonderful to talk to and in the end she truly made my Graduation more memorable. I have to thank her for the wonderful Memories.
Phillis Palmer – She always would call me her “Tall Friend” … and trust me, I was always fighting being so damned tall. Phillis always made me feel better about being so tall. With out her encouragement I think I would have been even more Anti-social then I already was (if possible)
I saved the Best two for last…
Mr. MacDonald – Met him as my Summer School History Teacher. He has been one of the best teachers I had had, just because he realized my learning disabilities and adjusted lessons for me. He made things so I understood them and I actually –learned- something form him. His is the only History Class I remember anything from. He did that for a lot of people, worked with them so they learned something and not just floated them on though. Mr. MacD. Is the reason I desire to become a Teacher myself. I TAed for him in my Last year and he was such a joy to talk to. Again, one of my Most inspiring inspirations.
Coach Hibbard – I had, and still have the greatest and highest respect for this man. I’m not sure if anyone can be higher then he. Coach Hibbard made me feel like I –belonged- some place. He went out of his way to help coach the Field half of the Track Team after our original coach left. Because of him, I stuck with it. There aren’t enough words to describe my feelings for this man and what he’s done for me even if it wasn’t much at all.
Favorite_memory: Becoming a Senior Guide, going to school early and ‘training’ with so many friends and Mr. Boyd. Helping the Freshmen that year and the Friendship days. Those were oddly fun in a off sort of way. Another would be at a very rainy and miserable track meet (finals!) my
freshmen year, having thrown my best yet and having the mark canceled because the Judge thought I cursed. I think what was so memorable was that I have several team mates (runners no less) who were Seniors at the time, defending me, standing up for me, and backing me up. I was the only girl on the team that year, and it was super cool to have so many Seniors back you up like that.
Story: No stories for now. I’ve rambled on long enough as it is.

Occupation: former Army, now full time student
Bio: I worked full time and went to ARC after grd in 98". I managed my own place and worked as a mortgage loan processor / asst. loan officer. I then joined the Army where I met and married my Husband. After 4 months of marriage, we concieved fraternal twins. I opted to end my military career at that time due to a high risk pregnancy. I am now a full time student at ARC.
Friends: Best friends were Katie Mensch, Concepcion Chavez, Melinda Aguirre, Mike Baptista, Carlos Chavez, Robert Horsely. Lost contact with Robert Horsely, and former HS boyfriend Paul Driscoll.
Hobbies: I enjoy SHOPPING! Going to the movies, and working out at the Gym.
Kids: Raul Jr. & Rayleena (twins) 14 months. Raul and Rayleena were born very premature at 23 weeks and 4 days gestation. They were hospitialized for 4 and a half months. They endured 10 operations between both Babies. They both survived on life support for the first 3 months of life. Now over a year later, they are thriving, although developmentally delayed. Sitting up and crawling are daily struggles. They would be for any baby who layed on there back for the first 4 months of life with little movement.) Six months ago both twins started modeling for Gap, Mervyns, and pottery barn kids. We've been to New York twice, to explore this new world of baby modeling. We also returned a 3rd time but for pleasure only. The twins story of survival was also shown on News 10 and in the Sacramento Bee. They are now doing great.
Grade_school: Northwood
Junior_high: Jonas Salk
Memorable_teachers: Mrs. Johnson- I have used her  inspiration to write a book on the twins survival story, and for giving us all laughter and a fun
way of learning English. Mr. Luchini for his understanding on homework, and Mr. Broadnansky for his character.
Favorite_memory: Cheerleading.
Story: Things I learned while at Encina.  Don't stab your friends in the back, nor base your life and whole being on the mere desire to be the most
popular, or the center of everyones attention. Try to hold down some sort of a job longer than 2 weeks, and get your drivers license LONG before your 21st birthday. Don't use people for rides, and talk behind your friends backs. Don't live off mommy, and rely on her to clean your room and wash your clothes. Learn independence and maturity at 18 when I did. Leave the nest, get a job, a car, a checking account, go to college. I am proud of all my classmates who spread their wings when they are suppose to. and are not still being handed everything on a silver platter.
