Ronald's Latest Interactions
Posted on: Apr 27, 2022 at 1:33 AM
My first memory of Mr. Ronan was in summer school typing class in 1961 even before I was a freshman where he was the teacher and I was trying to learn how to navigate my recently acquired Royal manual typewriter, a gift from my parents for having just graduated from Madrona 8th grade. I didn't know that the short man teaching the class was to become my class counselor for the next four years. None of us knew at that time how important keyboard skills would be in the decades that followed when computer monitors would replace sheets of paper and our brains learned how to convert abstract thoughts directly into Word docs and emails.
I didn't have a lot of interaction with Mr. Ronan during my time at THS, mainly because I managed to stay out of trouble and, being a band nerd, I had little time outside of the band hall during and after school. We had three different band directors during my four years there, but he was the one constant influence on me at school and I did get to know him at some class activities and events. In particular, I recall his guidance for our senior committee charged to select a painting too hang in the auditorium foyer. My time at Torrance High was happy and I made some good friends, although my family moved just after I graduated so I lost track of my classmates.
Godspeed Mr. Ronan
