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.For the complete article see the 04-11-2013 issue.
