Watsonville High School honors a lifelong teacher, Santana’s singer

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 10th, 2013

(Editor’s note: This is the final installment of the Watsonville High School Alumni Hall of Fame series.)

WATSONVILLE —After working for three years as a teacher in Northern California, Jean Pogue said she was looking for a job closer to her Palo Alto home when she came over Hecker Pass for the first time.

It was that vista that helped inspire her choice to become a teacher at Watsonville High School, where she stayed for nearly four decades.

“As I started over the pass, I spotted the pullout and decided to stop for a while and enjoy the view,” she wrote in a biography for the Watsonville High School Foundation Alumni Hall of Fame. “I proceeded down the hill, found the high school and did my interview. I decided in my heart that this was the teaching job I wanted.”

Pogue was named a “Friend of the Wildcatz” in this year’s Watsonville High School Foundation Alumni Hall of Fame.
