Name: Spirito, Joanne Stigerts



School Memories:
Best friends were Carol Cowen, Alice Conte, Billie Hodges, Barbara Blakely and all the gals in V.O.E., Jr. Sinawiks, Grapplettes and the gang in NHS.

Deanna Brackett and Virginia Miller were my favorite teachers.

Lived in West Hollywood off of 64th Street during 10th & 11th grade. Moved to Lauderhill in 12th grade, and took that Turnpike to McHS everyday during my senior year!

My first car was a blue Comet. Thought it was cool that I was allowed to drive in 10th grade!

Biggest hang out for me was Hollywood beach with friends!

Who would you like to see again?

I was going to be a travel agent and travel around the world! It turned out my older sister wound up doing that instead of me!
