Celebrating 100 Years of Oakland Technical High School
Chardell Forno Dossa ’59
I lived in the Temescal District and attended Tech because it was in my school district. I feel Tech prepared me well for my job in an insurance company, particularly the various business classes such as typing and shorthand. I had many friends at Tech, some of whom are my best friends today. When I tell people I went to Tech, they usually know that I was a Bulldog and that feels good. When I attend reunions with my husband, (also a Tech alum, Aldo Dossa, Class of 1955), I am impressed by the quality and friendliness of his Tech classmates.
