Flagship News - September 1981
Submitted by Bill Bennett: This is our graduation photo from June of 1976 taken at the Learning Center when we were all going to work at Phoenix Reservations. In a few months everybody would be offered a full or part-time job at the WCRO in Los Angeles. It was to be just a summer job for me but I left my studies at ASU and didn't return to college and get my degree until 1985! I worked in the WCRO when it opened in 1976 until I transferred back to PHX ATO in Sept 1979. I am in my 3-piece suit on the top right, Carla Herron Silva is 3rd from the bottom right, Barb Gardner who later went to work for CO in DEN is just below her, Kathy Bresin is 4th from top on the left, and John Gaines is 2nd from the top on the left! I also worked at PHX ATO, SFO ATO/TL/BS. Those were all wonderful fun times growing up with the best people and I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
