MR. DON WOODSON
We all know Don as a terrific teacher and a great friend. After graduating Pepperdine, he taught English III at MHS from 1962 to 1973. When his moustache grew too large for our campus he moved to Port Hueneme and joined Mr. Blek at a Camarillo middle school. Again at the urging of Mr. Blek, Don left and taught high school and college Speech and English for the next thirteen years. He spent twelve years as a Guidance Counselor prior to his first retirement in 1998. He returned to teaching at Hancock College from 1998-2005 but finally, in 2005, he retired with his wife, Judy, to Georgia to be near their daughter, Stacey, who, with help from her husband, Dean, gave birth to Peyton Woodson Shepard on August 15, 2008, making Don a grandfather for the first time. This time, when Mr. Woodson said "I retire," he meant it: he does not have email or even a computer. He welcomes Snail Mail. Contact Sherrie at firstname.lastname@example.org for his mailing address. Don noted, on reflection, that he would have been nothing, with no direction and no profession and most likely homeless, if it were not for George Blek.
