High school reunion special donation
High school reunions and a shared love of music helped bring about a very special reconnection for Highland resident Barbara Pike and William “Bill” Jones, who after not seeing each other for over 30 years, reunited to attend the 65th San Bernardino High School Class of 1950 reunion together in October 2015 in what proved to be the start of new romance.
Bill, class of 1950, and Barbara, class of 1951, had been friends playing togehter in the school’s band. Both married their first spouses soon after graduation and for a few years the two couples shared a home as the men joined the Navy and spent much of their time overseas during the Korean War.
After the war their lives took different paths as Bill built a career in technology working for IBM in New York and later Hughes Aircraft in California while Barbara remained in the San Bernardino area and became a teacher. >>> Read full article
