Alumni Of The Month

Karmen Pimentel
Class of 1988

I attended Ballico Cressey from 1980-1988. I've lived in Cressey all my life, except the 4 years I served in the Navy from 92-96. I started working in the Almond fields in Ballico with my folks when I was just a little girl. I worked up until 2 years ago when my health conditions got worse, to where working makes it worse, so here I am fighting for Disability since Jan of 2016.  My daughters have also attended Ballico Cressey Schools.

Class of 1933

Phyllis E (Braden) Lohman attended Ballico Elementary School from 1925-1933.  Her brother took them to school in a cart pulled by a pony.  The pony grazed on the grass while they learned their ABCs.  Phyllis played volleyball and ran track while at Ballico. 

After graduating from Livingston High School, Phyllis settled into the Ballico Community.  She married Jim Lohman where they farmed almonds and peaches for many years.  She gave birth to three children, Jerry, Janice, & Kathleen who all attended Ballico Elementary School.  She is the grandmother to 9 grandchildren (3 who attended Ballico Elementary School), 23 great grandchildren (4 who attended Ballico Elementary School), & 10 great, great grandchildren (with one more on the way).

Phyllis will turn 100 years old at the end of September and still resides on the farm that she and Jim bought many years ago.  Suffice it to say, she is probably the oldest living alumni of our lovely little school.

Class of 2005

My name is Samantha Wilson.  I graduated from Ballico in 2005 and went to Buhach Colony afterwards. I now live in Snelling with my four year old son Connor and I am finishing up my final bachelors degree in Human Resources. I currently serve as a Substitute Instructional Aide at MCOE with certifications in medical assisting, personal training, and nursing assistance. I am also a local photographer for the Central Valley. I think it’s wonderful that you are doing this on the website. I look forward to seeing how everyone has been doing!
