Michael Hogan Memorial Scholarship

Michael Hogan

This endowed scholarship was established in memory of Michael Hogan, a New Mexico Tech student who died in a climbing accident.

Michael C. Hogan, 20, a New Mexico Tech senior majoring in computer science, died on February 11, 2007, of injuries sustained in a rock climbing accident in San Lorenzo Canyon, a popular hiking and outdoor recreation area located about 12 miles north of Socorro.

Michael was a graduate of Rio Rancho High School, Class of 2004. He was described as “a highly spirited and creative person with a great love of life. He was an awesome son, brother, and friend and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Michael is survived by his mother, Kathy Campbell of Rio Rancho; sister, Rebecca Hogan of Albuquerque; father, Patrick Hogan and wife Mary Ann DeBoer of Chama.”  More information about Michael can be found at https://cs.nmt.edu/~michaelhogan/
