Dr. John Pendleton, a 1965 Santa Paula High School Alumni, inspired his audience last Tuesday night at Blanchard Community Library.  His positive approach to the history of America spotlighted heroism and innovation of many well known and little known historical figures.  The audience was more than captivated.  Dr. Pendleton’s approach to lecturing and his wonderful sense of humor made the hour pass too quickly.  Everyone looks forward to his next “performance”.  Even more elevating was the fact that he was here on Election Day.  His love of our country was so vibrant that it made the audience feel proud to be an American.  He spoke of the accomplishments and the failures of our leaders, but his critique never rung with negative notes. His students are fortunate to have such a dynamic and intelligent professor.  If all Americans took a class with John, our nation would definitely exude a more positive image to the world. Several people discussed how to introduce him.  After witnessing this event,  he definitely deserves an introduction commensurate with the introduction given to that famed entertainer, Johnny Carson.   Come see for yourselves, because “Here’s Johnny”, another one of the elite graduates of Santa Paula High with Part 2 “Popular Culture” on December 2nd at 6:30 p.m. at Blanchard Community Library.
