A guy that went to my high school just got drafted in the NBA: Steve Blake. There is a baseball player too: Alex Gonzalez. Probably a bunch of football but I don't know.

Noone famous that I know of from my public HS.

A number of celebrities from my college alma mater: Kristin Davis of Sex and the City/Melrose Place, Calista Flockhart, Avery Brooks of Star Trek.

I also attended MIT for a while and a whole buttload of Nobel Prize winners I can't name are from there as well as actor James Woods, linguist Noam Chomsky, and Bose (MIT students get a discount on Bose speakers IIRC).

We had an Anita Finger. Her picture is up on the wall for the class of 1960-something. Also one of the Detroit Lions went to our highschool. I don't know if he is still playing though.

LMAO!

Anyways, the Yellow Ranger went to one of my elementary schools, that is Hazelton Elementary School in Stockton, CA. Now, this is the Yellow Ranger from the second or third season... she was black and it was the chick who they got from Africa when they went back in time? Anyways, I just remember meeting her the last day of fifth grade. I'm not too up on the Power Rangers lore.

All I can think of are athletes.

Steve Mariucci, former coach of the SF 49ers and current coach of Det. Lions.
Dallas Drake, right wing for the St. Louis Blues
Tom Izzo, head coach of Michigan State basketball

All graduated from Northern Michigan University.

Couldn't tell ya about anyone from high school.

This one guy went to my high school, so did this one other girl...umm...forgot their names.

Come to think of it, they're not too famous.
