PhotoBryan Denninger: Determined Dean

Olivia Prendergast
Dean Bryan Denninger poses while sitting at a lunch table in the commons on May 3, 2024. Denninger’s job is hands-on and busy, so he doesn’t always have time to sit at his desk and usually makes a lunch table his workspace.

Bryan Denninger is an inspiration to a lot of students. He always manages to put a smile on students’ faces and is always there if you ever need a person to talk to about anything. Denninger always puts students first and helps them whenever they need.


“This isn’t their only world, there could be other things going on, whatever it is, it’s usually the other stuff.” Denninger stated. 


Denninger is a dean of students.  According to Wisconsin Education Career Access Network, “The dean of students is responsible for supporting administration in handling student discipline and attendance issues.”


“One of the goals with the dean job is getting to know every kid’s name,” Denninger said.

Denninger always manages to make time in his personal life to go support kids in their sports outside of school. He goes to a lot of sporting events such as football, hockey, and more, not only as a dean to supervise but to support those players and watch them do great things in the sports they love.


“I like to see those kids that are excelling and doing the above and beyond things, the things they love to do.” said Denninger.


I remember the day that I walked into this school, and Denninger recognized me immediately because of my sister and mom. He still always manages to spot me in the hallway and say hi to me. I feel as though I can go and talk to Denninger whenever I need. I’ve only actually known Denninger for two years now, but he has made a great impact on my life so far.
