Newly elected Alaska Gov. Bill Walker (seated) is surrounded by former Kailua High School cheerleaders, who all endured the inaugural chill to support fellow cheerleader Donna (Pyle) Walker (behind the governor) as the 49th state’s first lady. All the women are 1972 KHS graduates. They and their spouses are (from left) Mike and Patti (Goldbeck) Kranish, Miles and Debbie (Gee) Whitty, Greg and Patti (Wren) Culver, Debie (Izaquirre) and Brian Brillhante, Belinda (Dunn) and Greg Maggass, and Marla (Caires) and Dickie McManus.
