The issue: We congratulate DHS Hall of Fame inductees and thank the Blue & White Foundation for its efforts

It is with thanks and great pride that weÕve been watching the work of our Davis High School Blue & White Foundation. In less than six years, the ambitious undertakings of the folks involved are remarkable.

Shining the spotlight on the accomplishments of former Blue Devils, bringing honor to those who worked to make our high school special Ñ all the time supporting programs and facilities that will mold future generations Ñ the Blue & White Foundation should take a deep bow.

But taking credit isnÕt its thing. With the second class of the DHS Hall of Fame, the group gives credit by celebrating success, sacrifice, glory and commitment. The foundation reminds us of the rich history of a school not yet 90 years old.

ON SATURDAY, we have a chance to join family and friends of Hall of Fame inductees in saying thank you to five special people who, in their own ways, made campus or community life more vibrant, rewarding and important.

Army hero John Barovetto, a 1956 graduate, joins Class of 1978 entertainer Tony Fields, Olympic water polo great Craig Wilson (Class of 1975), volunteer athletic trainer Dick Lewis and Joanne Moldenhauer Ñ at math teacher at DHS for more than 50 years Ñ as the second class in the Hall of Fame. Barovetto, Fields and Lewis will be enshrined posthumously.

The five to be honored contributed in diverse ways.

Barovetto, killed in Vietnam in 1968 while on a rescue mission, worked hard to rebuild that country, even as the conflict grew. His sense of responsibility and his passion for peace were early lessons to our community.

Fields, who died much too young at 38, was a charter member of the Jazz Choir and grew from his local training to be a featured Broadway performer and music video regular. His turns in Michael JacksonÕs ÒThrillerÓ and ÒBeat ItÓ videos helped make the productions iconic.

Lewis, for more than 50 years a trainer at UC Davis and then Davis High, was a healer, mentally and physically. His encouragement drew more effort from athletes than some knew they had.

Wilson, after a stellar career swimming and playing water polo at DHS, toiled in the nets during three Olympics for the United States. A trainer, speaker and coach, Wilson was been called one of the two greatest water polo goalies of all time.

And Moldenhauer É Her students continue to sing her praises, long after leaving the veteran teacherÕs classroom. Nurturing, demanding and showing students the importance of math in professional and personal life, Moldenauer is a classic example of what has made Davis High School what it is today.

THE DAVIS ENTERPRISE joins the Blue & White Foundation Ñ and the countless thousands who have been served or inspired by these five people Ñ in saying congratulations. And thank you É
