There was green and gold and plenty of blue in the University Union Ballroom on Friday, Aug. 11, when Sacramento State alumnus Daniel Hahn ’95 (Marketing) was officially sworn in as Sacramento’s 45th police chief.
More than 1,000 family, friends, law enforcement officers, and other guests were on hand for the occasion, including Sacramento State President Robert S. Nelsen and Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg. Hahn was sworn in as chief surrounded by his wife, two daughters, and his adoptive mother. In his remarks, he talked about growing up in Sacramento’s Oak Park neighborhood, the importance of community, and returning to the campus where he earned his degree.
“I can’t think of too many places that are more important to our city, and our community, and our youth, and the future of our community, than my alma mater, Sac State,” Hahn said.
Sacramento State alumnus Daniel Hahn ’95 (Marketing) is leaving the Roseville Police Department to become chief of the Sacramento Police Department, but that doesn’t mean the former is losing its connection to the University. Hahn’s replacement in Roseville will be fellow alumnus Jim Maccoun ’86 (Criminal Justice), the Roseville and Grass Valley Press-Tribune reported this week.
Maccoun joined the Roseville department as assistant chief in 2014, following 32 years in Sacramento and, according to the Press-Tribune, “built a reputation in Roseville for working diligently behind the scenes, with Hahn recommending him to Jensen as his successor and Jensen interviewing no other candidates.”
If you take a tour of the State Capitol these days, you’ll find a Sacramento State graduate in the hallway outside the governor’s office.
Ana Klein ’95 (Accounting), MBA ’10, is one of seven California State University alumni featured in a set of posters on display in the State Capitol this week. The posters are part of the “Made in the CSU” campaign, which highlights outstanding alumni from the CSU’s 23 campuses.
Klein is the vice president and chief financial officer for Sunsweet Growers Inc., the world’s largest handler of dried tree fruits. She was recognized as CFO of the year by the Sacramento Business Journal in 2014 and as the Sacramento State College of Business Administration Alumna of the Year in 2015.
