Last week’s Remember When mystery photo, top, showed a young Wayne Thallander in 1994. He is a longtime English and journalism instructor at Tracy High School, whose journalism students have won a number of national awards.

Identifying him were former students Kelly Jones, Ali Carrigan, Maria Lyne and Valerie Griego, along with Wayne Schneider, Jeffie Thompson and Jeff Alexandre.
