Dan Cholas, a hard worker who has been in our Delta School District for about 50 years has many important roles. Mr. Cholas is a retired physical education coach, a current baseball umpire, and maintenance guy.

Mr. Cholas believes discipline and respect are very important in everyday life. He thinks that saying someone's last name without "Mr." or "Mrs." is disrespectful. One day when he was teaching, a kid came up and called him "Cholas" and didn't include the "Mr." and that was the last time that kid or anyone ever called him "Cholas."

While most kids thought he was a strict P.E coach, he has a soft spot in his heart for the special education kids.

Mr. Cholas's umpiring career has been for about 40 years plus. In that time he got the opportunity twice to ump the Babe Ruth World Series. Mr. Cholas spent 15 years umpiring in college baseball and not only that, but made the CHSAA Hall of Fame twice, once in 2007 and again in 2014.

If you would like to know more, there will be a more in-depth story on Mr. Cholas in the Delta Paw Print produced by the Delta High journalism class coming out in May.
