5 folks important to Davis High named to shrine

From page A1 | May 18, 2014 |

A disciple of Mikhail Baryshnikov, a selfless community volunteer, a longtime supporter of area schools, a beloved counselor/coach and an Olympic medal winner will be enshrined in the Davis High Hall of Fame this fall.

Rachel Moore, Wanda Winton, Doug Arnold, Paul Ochs and Marcella “Marcy” Place Sheehan will be the seventh class of inductees.

The announcement came Friday at the DHS Blue & White Foundation’s annual golf tournament.

The Hall of Fame panel considers members in five categories. Here’s the Class of 2014:

Alumni at large: Winton — all the while working and raising a family — has been a key member of organizations like the Girl Scouts, All Things Right & Relevant (a consignment store benefiting Yolo County nonprofits), Venture Club, Soroptimists and Salvation Army.

Winton’s civic-mindedness began before her 1956 graduation from DHS, earning a statewide office with Rainbow Girls thanks to organizing paper drives, bake sales and carwashes. Her target foundation almost 60 years ago was Stanford Home.

A former classroom aide, PTA president and advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Association, Winton’s commitment to “all things right and relevant” has never wavered.

Faculty/staff: Ochs spent more than 40 years coaching and advising Blue Devil students.

Retiring as a counselor after 33 years, Ochs continued coaching girls tennis for another nine seasons. The popular Ochs’ teams earned six Sac-Joaquin Section championships among their 28 league crowns.

Ochs says he takes great pride in his counseling career and explains that coaching a sport “is a lot more than wins and losses.”

“He is the perfect example of Blue Devil Pride and doing things the right way,” said one of Ochs’ many nominators. “As a coach, he intuitively understood the unique personalities and needs of each of his players. Additionally, hard work and pride in yourself and your team were very important to Paul.”

When his wife Mary Anne can tear him off the golf course, the Ochses dote on their grandchildren. Still Davis residents, the Ochses also have enjoyed traveling in recent years.

Athletics: Sheehan, who currently lives in the East Bay, was a multisport Blue Devil who made her worldwide mark in field hockey.

A member of the 1984 U.S. field hockey squad that won a bronze Olympic medal, Sheehan is a Cal graduate and currently teaches biology at Mt. Diablo High.

A master of motivation, Sheehan has spent much of her time after college mentoring and coaching from the local levels to national teams.

Sheehan — who graduated from Davis High in 1977 — was a member of the famous Denise Curry-led Blue Devil basketball teams; teams that established new standards in girls prep sports while winning the first two girls Sac-Joaquin Section championships.

Sheehan is a member of both the University of California and the U.S. Field Hockey Association halls of fame.

The mother of three, Sheehan’s two sons play college lacrosse.

Fine arts: Moore is the chief executive officer of the American Ballet Theatre, a group for which she once danced.

In 1982, then-DHS senior Moore was a Presidential Scholar in the Arts.

An accomplished performer, Moore was with the American Ballet Theatre (1984-88) under the tutelage of legendary Baryshnikov.

Because of a career-ending injury, Moore turned her attention to fine arts administration, graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Brown University before earning her master’s at Columbia.

Once director of Boston’s Ballet Center for Dance Education and integral in a classical music school for students of color in Boston (Project STEP), Moore continues to serve as a trustee of the Economic Club of New York and as an adviser to the Dizzy Feet Foundation.

Among other existing responsibilities, Moore is a director of the National Dance Foundation of Bermuda and a member of the Child Performer Advisory Board for the New York Department of Labor.

Moore is married, a pet lover and lives in Bronxville, New York.

Friend/benefactor: In 1965, Davis High had Arnold as a four-sport standout, president of his class, Homecoming king and founding member of the old Rear Ends Car Club.

Arnold worked as a San Francisco police officer in the 1970s (earning a Medal of Valor in 1973).

He returned to the relative safety of Davis, entering his family’s business, in the mid-1970s. Through what is now Coldwell Banker/Doug Arnold Real Estate, he’s given back to the community as a supporter of countless fundraisers.

For outstanding service to the city of Davis, Arnold was given the C.A. Covell Award (Citizen of the Year) in 1994.

“Doug has always been generous with his time and resources in helping DHS students,” one induction committee member explains. “Over the years, Doug has planned and hosted several of the Blue Devils 1965 reunions.”

Involved over the years in the Davis Rotary Club, the Yolo County Housing Authority, the education committee of the county’s realtor association and FamiliesFirst Foster Santa programs, Arnold has contributed more than $1 million to community projects and programs, according to Blue & White Foundation officials.

Arnold’s donation to the BWF was instrumental in the renovation of Ron & Mary Brown Stadium at Davis High.

Notes: The latest cast headed to the local shrine will bring to 35 the number of inductees, which includes a Nobel Prize winner (Carol Greider), game-changing basketball player (Curry) and a host of people who have made a difference locally, nationally and internationally. …The Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place Saturday, Sept. 13, at the ARC Ballroom on the UC Davis campus. …Additional Blue & White Foundation information is available by visiting www.dhsblueandwhite.org.
