Oh, what a night! We combined two events into one great party. First, over 350 alumni, parents, current and former faculty, and friends honored retiring physics teacher, Tom Woosnam, for 40 years of service at Crystal. Tom’s remarkable legacy was celebrated in the Theater with a mini Knowledge Bowl that pitted faculty against alumni (the faculty won)...
For the third year in a row, Ms. Lloyd’s Creative Writing class has had the pleasure of hearing veteran film critic and Crystal alum, Marco Cerritos ’97, speak. Marco got his start writing articles for the school newspaper, formerly known as the Gryphon’s Tail, while he was at Crystal.
On Saturday, June 8, starting at 5:30 pm, we will celebrate a true Crystal icon at Reunion with a cocktail party for retiring physics teacher, Tom Woosnam. Mr. Woosnam began his Crystal career the same year boys were admitted, 1977. Mr. Woosnam has taught both physics and mathematics, served as the 12th grade lead advisor, acted in a Crystal production (The Drowsing Chaperone), hosted the annual Knowledge Bowl, and shared his love of cinema and all things Monty Python with his students. And chances are, if you went to Disneyland for grad night, Mr. Woosnam was there with you.
To kick off the New Year, the CSUS Alumni Board was proud to host retired English Department Chair, Dr. Idris Anderson, who regaled a “sold out” crowd of alumni, alumni parents, faculty and friends with a reading from her latest award-winning volume of poetry, Doubtful Harbor. Idris’ selected reading of travel-themed poems transported the audience to Kuala Lumpur, Ireland, New Zealand, Alaska and beyond.
