"I find it impossible to assess the impact that El Segundo High School has had on my life.  Were it not for Patton McNaughton and Virginia Stuart, I would not have aimed so high in the field of music.  My other teachers were helpful in establishing the values by which I continue to live.  I am grateful for the supportive environment of this great school.
