Sue Goes To School
Sue went to school at
California State University
at Long Beach
(CSULB) and graduated with honors in Mathematics.
Sue's goal was to teach High School which she achieved but soon joined the large Aerospace company!
The Aerospace world was expanding like mad since we were still in the midst of the Cold War. Anyone with scientific skills was drafted!

Sue's degree in mathematics worked out well as she used that training to
become a software engineering manager, Program Manager for the Global Positioning
System (GPS) Ground Segment, and finally, before retiring, deputy Program
Manager for a major program within Boeing..
Paul Goes To School
Paul went to
Alexander Hamilton High School
Los Angeles City College
, and the
University of Southern California
) and received a Bachelor's degree in History with a goal of teaching
Paul's growing up included Ham Radio which was the basis of Paul's technical training and that was applied to testing elements of the Apollo spacecraft beginning 1965 with North American Aviation.
Many of the High School classmates are now on-line!
Hamilton was a good school and it has a LARGE graduating class! The sixties were OK years but nothing will ever match the 1950's!

After several years in industry, Paul then went Northrop University for a Master of Science in Management Technology.
Guess that's why we were in Aerospace?? Go figure!
It is a sad thing to see what is happening in schools today!
The problem is the lack of parenting!!!
