SPUSD announced on Wednesday, May 15 that Mathematics teacher Mr. Anthony Chan will take over as the new athletic director for SPHS.
Chan, a graduate of Cal State LA, UC Irvine, and Temple City High School, was hired by SPHS in 2013. Since then, he has distinguished himself as a pivotal and versatile staff member, serving as a varsity and junior varsity football team coach, track coach, and the chairman of the school site council.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of working with students outside the classroom and helping them find success through athletics,” Chan said in a press release. “South Pasadena students work hard in the classroom, and I’m eager to round out the student experience through a strong sports program. I’m thrilled to be leading a program that will be efficient, transparent and community-focused.”
