I'm super bored so I'm wondering if anyone famous went to your school. Doesn't have to be UBER FAMOUS, just well-known.

As for my school (John Hersey High School, Arlington Hights, Ill.) a guy called Steve Chen went there. If you don't know who he is, he co-founded youtube. Pretty Cool, eh?

Are we talking high school or college? If high school (I assume it is), Bill Cartwright and I think football players, Adrian Ross and Lance Briggs. Someone who made more recent news is Stephanie Cox, who played on the US Olympic Women's Soccer team.

High school is better but if you went to a small college, it's better because we aren't getting info we already know.

By the way- LANCE BRIGGS?! He's my favorite player!

I'm afraid not. Not only is Greenwich not in Westchester (and Rye Brook shouldn't be), but you've misspelled "Ardsley". However, should a southwestern Connecticut clique materialize here at TT, I'm sure they'd be happy to have you.

As to your other question, there are one or two other Westchester folks that I know about.

There are about a dozen top players in MLB who went thru San Jac - evan more so for the Basketball program - i wouldn't be surprised of some crazy number like 15 to 20% of the players in the NBA didn't pass thru San Jac for their first two years. They have won a ton of Juco nat'l titles.

No argument at all - for sure one of the greatest (along with Edward R Murrow) broadcast journalists ever.

I was just having fun tweaking the TEASIP -

Also Cronkite was at San Jacinto College (San Jac) before going on to
UT for his Jr and Sr years. San Jac has a LOOONG list of established alumni who went on to greatness after their two yrs there.

The main character's mom from the movie Just Friends. Her name escapes me but apparently she's kind of famous.

Wrong question.
I wonder what school went to him.

I'm afraid not. Not only is Greenwich not in Westchester (and Rye Brook shouldn't be), but you've misspelled "Ardsley". However, should a southwestern Connecticut clique materialize here at TT, I'm sure they'd be happy to have you.

As to your other question, there are one or two other Westchester folks that I know about.

I live in bedford ny westchester

I'm super bored so I'm wondering if anyone famous went to your school. Doesn't have to be UBER FAMOUS, just well-known.

As for my school (John Hersey High School, Arlington Hights, Ill.) a guy called Steve Chen went there. If you don't know who he is, he co-founded youtube. Pretty Cool, eh?

Mike Tice - former minnesota Vikings coach.

Michael Chang. He was in my English class until he dropped out to turn pro and play in Wimbledon. He won Roland Garros the next year. Yes, he was a smart guy. He took honors classes and advanced math. Quiet person, though. Hardly anyone knew him because he was so busy (go figure).

HS: Rikki Rockett, drummer for Poison (and there was one Playboy Playmate - can't think of the name); Kyle Brady - tight end on the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets.

College: Lee Iacocca. Funny thing about Lee - there was an Urban Legend at Lehigh that he got an Electrical Engineering degree (brutal major) in 3 years; turns out he majored in Industrial Engineering (which we called Imaginary Engineering).
