Celebrating 100 Years of Oakland Technical High School
Gloria Fryer Kautzer ’47
I graduated in the Class of 1947. I took college prep courses and went on to Cal. In addition to academics, there were ball games and dances. Many of the girls wore purple and gold outfits to the games to support the football players. We were allowed to eat lunch on the beautiful green lawn, but if we didn’t pick up our litter, there would be a ticket and you would have to appear before a group of your peers. When I was at Tech, it was a changing time and I can remember a couple of students out of the military getting their high school degrees. I am so glad Tech was preserved and has come back academically!
