John & Katie Hogan Memorial Award
January 29, 2024
John and Katie Hogan (John W. Hogan Jr. and Catherine M. Hogan, nee Menadier) raised their four children in New Haven but spent most weekends, since 2005, in Westport with two of their seven grandchildren. They loved engaging with young people to learn about their lives and interests and to encourage them to pursue their passions and education. They shared many stories of how grateful John was for the support he received to be the first in his family to attend a 4-year college, The College of the Holy Cross. John worked his way through college and UConn law school and went on to practice law in New Haven and Milford. John and Katie passed away in 2023 at 84 and 82. This award is named in their memory by the Gillman Family, Joan (nee Hogan), Ted, Allison ’23 and Zachary ’26.
