Dan Hogan by Alice Hughes, Performing Arts Teacher
Dan Hogan is our awesome facilities manager. We are so thankful for his great care of our new school facilities. He is a strong advocate for students learning to be great stewards of our buildings. He works tirelessly to have systems in place to encourage and enable them to become caretakers of our facility.
Dan is a Denver, Colorado native who moved to Santa Cruz in his late twenties to be nearer to family, who had also moved to California. Interestingly, he was a commercial plumber for many years. No wonder he is so great at dealing with our bathrooms!! He has also had other interesting career jaunts into the winery business and was even a sexton, at one point. (SAT word, look it up!)
He enjoys volunteering to help build mountain bike trails and scouring the country for excellent Mexican food. Scott Carey, in IT, sold him his sweet WRX Subaru and has enjoyed working on modifications ever since. Dan enjoys travelling. He loved his trip to Austria and Germany a few years ago, which afforded him the opportunity to snowboard at the Olympic facility in Innsbruck.
Dan highly recommends the book, How to Survive Working with People.
