Arnold is being honored as a friend/benefactor. He graduated from DHS in 1965 as a four-sport standout, president of his class and Homecoming King. After working as a police officer in San Francisco in the 1970s, Arnold came back to Davis and entered the family business — real estate.

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 received the C.A. Covell Award (Citizen of the Year) in 1994.

Moore, who is being inducted under the fine arts category, is the chief executive office of the American Ballet Theatre, a group for which she once danced. An accomplished performer, Moore was with the American Ballet Theatre (1984-88) under the tutelage of legendary Mikhail Baryshnikov.

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

Ochs — the faculty/staff inductee — 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.”

Sheehan, a 1977 DHS graduate, 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, she 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. She is a member of both the University of California and the U.S. Field Hockey Association halls of fame.

Winton, a 1956 DHS graduate, is being honored as an alumna at large. While working and raising a family, she 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 graduation from DHS, when she earned a statewide office with Rainbow Girls thanks to organizing paper drives, bake sales and carwashes.
