Colette Cozean Science 1976
Biomedical engineer Colette (Day) Cozean, Ph.D. is a pioneer in the development and marketing of numerous lines of dental, ophthalmic and surgical applications as chairman, president and CEO of Irvine-based Premier Laser Systems. She earned bachelor's degrees in physical sciences from Westmont College and in biomedical engineering from USC; a master's degree in electrical engineering and a doctorate in biomedical engineering, both from the Ohio State University.

Her company entered into an agreement to form a strategic alliance with Salt Lake City-based International BioLaser Corp. (IBLC) to manufacture and market a dental laser that painlessly removes cavities without anesthesia. The company made headlines when the IBLC multi-operatory argon dental laser system was approved in 1997 by the Food and Drug Administration. The American Dental Association, which previously had dismissed the use of lasers to cut through teeth, endorsed the technology. The FDA later approved the laser's use for kids.

Dr. Cozean vigorously marketed the technology, doing 75 back-to-back interviews over three days on such shows as Good Morning America and NBC News. Her efforts paid off: Dr. Cozean, who at one time ran up a $150,000 credit-card tab to pay her 40 employees, turned a struggling company into one of the leading manufacturers and marketers of lasers, laser waveguides and fiber optic devices, disposables and associated accessory products for the medical, dental and surgery markets.

David Lee Roth Performing Arts 1972
Born in Indiana farm country, David Lee Roth spent his early childhood shuttling between the great outdoors and living with his famous uncle, Manny Roth, in New York's Greenwich village during the early '60s. Living over the Café Wha? night club, Dave's musical education began with the likes of Bob Dylan, Peter Paul and Mary, Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce.

During his years at Muir, Roth met Eddie and Alex Van Halen, unsuccessfully auditioning for lead vocalist of their band, Mammoth. He later rented them his sound system and they allowed him to join to save money. Mammoth started as a garage band, expanding to backyard parties in Altadena and Pasadena, and then began performing at local clubs. The band became Van Halen when it found the name Mammoth was already being used. Gene Simmons of Kiss fame saw Van Halen in 1977 and financed their first demo tape. It wasn’t long before Warner Brothers Records caught on and signed them to their first recording contract.

“Diamond Dave” became a classic front man and by the late ‘70s, Van Halen had knocked Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin out of the top-band-in-the-world spot with hits like “Runnin’ with the Devil,” “Dance the Night Away” and their No. 1 smash “Jump.”

Roth’s subsequent solo career also yielded a truck load of hits, including “Just A Giggolo/Ain’t Got Nobody” and “California Girls.”

Van Halen is the 19th best-selling rock act of all time, according to the Recording Industry Association of America and is one of five bands to have two albums sell 10 million copies in the U.S. In 2007, Van Halen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Jacque Vaughn Sports 1993

Jacque Vaughn is an American professional basketball player who currently plays reserve point guard for the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA. He won his first championship as a member of the Spurs in 2007.
Vaughn played collegiately at the University of Kansas and was selected 27th overall by the Utah Jazz in the 1997 NBA Draft. In addition to playing four seasons in Utah, Vaughn has also played with the Orlando Magic, the Atlanta Hawks (in two separate stints), as well as the New Jersey Nets. He holds 1997-2006 career averages of 4.8 points and 2.6 assists in 17.2 minutes per game.

In his college career, Vaughn made an immediate impact, becoming the starting point guard as a Freshman. Throughout his four years at Kansas, Vaughn was best known as a distributor of the basketball. He also had great speed and was a strong defender. By the end of his college career, he was the all-time leader in assists in Kansas basketball history with 804 as well as the Big Eight Conference all-time record holder. In 1997, the award given annually to the school's assist leader was renamed for Vaughn.

As a student at John Muir High School Vaughn was awarded the Dial Award for the national high-school scholar-athlete of the year in 1992 and was a two-time Academic All-American at Kansas and the 1997 Academic All-American of the Year. Vaughn was the Big Eight Player of the Year in 1996 and a two time all-conference pick. His college jersey was retired on December 31, 2002, and hangs in honor in the rafters of Allen Fieldhouse.

Vaughn is married, with two children.
