Dennis Coan is the Future Center Director at Heritage High School.
Growing up outside of Jacksonville, Florida, Dennis came to Lynchburg in 2002 to attend Liberty University. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences and teacher licensure, his career began first as a classroom educator. He spent 10 years at the middle school level and 4 more years teaching and coaching at Heritage High School.
His time spent coordinating a Federal GEAR UP grant at HHS shifted his professional trajectory and provided valuable learning experiences in college and career access. Now continuing to work with Heritage students through the Future Center, Dennis desires to use his varied experiences as a teacher, head coach, and access advisor to provide the greatest opportunities for all of our students with a high level of support for them and their families.
