So this came up recently, Will Forte went to my girlfriends high school, graduated a few years before her, but with the Recent movie.. and SNL its kinda cool.  If you Wiki your High school, what famous people when to your school? List em!

i went to Claremont High (Claremont ,ca) 

  • Ben Harper, musician and singer-songwriter
  • Alex Hinshaw, MLB baseball player for the San Francisco Giants (was there when i was there)
  • Kristin Rossum, toxicologist notable for murdering her husband with poison
  • Frank Zappa, composer, guitarist, record and film producer
  • Dan McGwire, NFL quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks
  • Mark McGuire former baseball great went to Claremont High, but didn't graduate from there
  • Jessica Alba went to El Roble Middle school (in Claremont) 
  • Peter Thum, co-founder of Ethos Water

Honorable mention, He didnt go to school there, but Snoop Dogg lived a mile or so from me when i lived there.

Interesting idea.

I didn't recognize anyone on the "famous" alumni list from my high school.  Although I'm proud that this guy graduated from there:

Richard Chase; Serial killer and subject of the book "Dracula Killer" by Ray Biondi, killed six people in 1977 and early 1978 then died in prison in 1980.

WAAATT WAAA, no famous people graduated from my HS.  When I looked it up, it said Gresham High School a public school in Gresham, Oregon.  Wow insightful.
But, really what am I expecting with a Gopher for a mascot.  Unfortunately the year that the HS was formed, the Minnesota Golden Gophers won the national championship and that's how the name came about.  It was either the berry pickers or gophers.  I guess it could've been worse.

My high School didn't even pop up in Wiki- I had to do a little research:

Steve Sax-is a former second baseman in Major League Baseball. He was a right-handed batter for the Los Angeles Dodgers (1981-1988), New York Yankees (1989-1991), Chicago White Sox (1992-1993), and the Oakland Athletics (1994).

Malcolm Floyd-(born September 8, 1981 in Sacramento, California) is an American football wide receiver for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League. He was signed by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2004. He played college football at Wyoming.


Our little towns claim to fame:)

GUTH!!! Small world man!
haha I went to Damien High School in La Verne (2002 grad), but Claremont was my stomping ground from 8th grade through high school. Remember Claremont ski n surf/surf n skate/ski n skate (whatever it was called)? Man that's where I picked up all my first gear! Why the hell isn't Jessica Alba on your list didn't she go to claremont?

Also I remember when snoop used to live in claremont, we used to go ding dong ditch or skate by when we were in high school and he'd be throwing parties with a bunch of thugs. He'd have the big crip blue hummer parked in the circled driveway. haha He used to hook us up with huge Hersey chocolate bars during halloween when we'd roll over to his pad. Now he lives closer to me in Diamond Bar, moved out here when all the older people in claremont kept giving him trouble and complaining about his dogs and parties.

Here's my list! But one of the most important dudes was the black neighbor kid from Hangin' with Mr Cooper. haha Oh also my English teacher at the time was Buckethead's brother...buckethead would come visit time to time and shoot the crap he also played at a couple of the battle of the bands, one of which he performed with the Primus guys and Serj Tankian from System of a Down!

Mark McGwire – Professional baseball player
Ian Johnson – Professional football player, Minnesota Vikings (Went to school with him)
Frank Pastore - Professional baseball player, talk radio host
Rick Davis – Professional soccer player
Cory Lekkerkerker - Professional football player
Larry Wilmore- Comedian/Writer
Joe Franchino- Professional Soccer player
Daniel Moskos - Clemson pitcher. Drafted 4th overall in 2007 Amateur MLB Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates
Bill Duffy - Sports agent (Steve Nash)
Dennis Shaw - Quarterback, Professional football player. 1970 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year
Mike Hunter - Professional soccer player
Chukwudi Chijindu - Professional Soccer Player
Aniceto Galarza - Mexican Soccer Player
Brian Carroll - Professional Guitar Player A.K.A. Buckethead

    This is the wiki list. I know there are more. A lot kids were on tv-shows and had small parts in movies. Singer Colbie Caillat who sings "Lucky" with Jason Mraz also went there. The most famous are probably Kurt Russel and Kramer from Seinfeld. Justin Beiber has enrolled for next fall which I am not looking forward to due the stalker-ish tweens that will now be lurking around my house lol

    Michael Diamond (aka Mike D, founding member of the Beastie Boys)
        * Katherine Healy (figure skater)
        * Meredith Rainey (U.S. Olympic Team track/field athlete)
    Zac Posen (designer)
    Mia Sara (actress)
    Joie Lee (actress, sister of director Spike Lee)
    Jennifer Connelly (actress)

    BK represent, Beastie boys alum as u can see. No but seriously its a relatively exclusive private school in brooklyn that quote, "In late 2007, the Wall Street Journal again listed Saint Ann's as one of the world's top 50 schools for its success in preparing students to enter top American universities."
    some pretty legit people went here, that was only a few of many.

    And yes the beastie boys were pretty wealthy and went to expensive private schools, haha.

    All the Tuis went to my HS.

    From the school's opening in 1983 to 2006, the Drama Department was headed by Director Hjalmer Anderson. During his tenure at WHS, the acclaimed director built the program to be one of the top drama programs in the United States, and they were invited twice to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the American High School Theatre Festival.[1] In 2006, Mr. Anderson retired and his position was filled by Mrs. Leslie Herlich.

    Oh, and it's wrong, we were also invited in 2005 but we had just gone the year prior so we didn't make it. I have heard that the new director is garbage - and she doesn't let us alums come and chill like Hjalm used to ;)
    When I do good I am never remembered. When I do bad I am never forgotten.

    [edit] Football


    Fighting/Smashing

    • Mike Rio - Professional MMA Fighter, Flip Cup Champ, Professional Deutscher
    What sucks is I grew up playing optimist football with some of these guys, but never got the chances they did.  At 5'9 135lbs..not alot of schools want ya.  Then as I matured a little bit...I got up to 165...but still short for a WR...I went to tryouts and impressed, but couldnt get a contract b/c Mr. 6'2 gets the nod over me....bleh.  Thank goodness for players like Wes Welker and nowadays who show that you can be that size and make it in the NFL.
