Brayden Hogan has been working with Liberty in the maintenance department since 2013. He is a dependable, all-in kind of employee that managers love to have on their team. He’s a hard worker who enjoys his job and the people he works with. Brayden is engaged to Allison, and they are getting married in April 2023. He has a dog he loves being with on his days off, and he enjoys working on cars, trucks, or bikes. He really loves being outside and has a bit of a daredevil streak — if it’s dangerous, he’s the first in line! Brayden is a large part of the maintenance group, and Liberty is a better place because he’s here. Congratulations, Brayden, on a fantastic job!
Austin Clark has been with the Liberty family for over three years and came to us from Texas. He is an electrician tech III and adds a lot to the team he works with. He’s really stepped up this past summer with the large volume of work Electrical had, including some very large projects. Austin is reliable and hardworking and is in school to get his electrician’s license. He has been married to his wife, Amanda, for two and a half years, and in his free time he enjoys hiking and hunting. Thank you, Austin, for all your hard work. Congratulations; you deserve it!
Detective Glenn Anderson has been fighting cancer. During this time, he has remarkably continued to show us his utmost professionalism and dedication to his work. His positive attitude is contagious in our workplace. Anderson has never complained about his treatments and continues to show up for work with a smile on his face.
Glenn has markedly enhanced the employment background investigation process by making some critical discoveries that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. He’s shown his willingness to serve in any capacity within the department, and he’s delivered every single time. Glenn’s expertise in interviews has developed some independent references not previously listed by candidates which have enable this agency to gain some strong candidates. We are highly privileged to have him as part of our LUPD family and thank him for being an inspiration.

Jordan does a great job as the face of Student Activities for all of our outside vendors, partners, and departments, and he did a terrific job this year running Homecoming Weekend. He personally planned and executed our check-in event and the parade. On event days, there is no one with a better spirit, kinder demeanor, or more focused mind than Jordan. He is quick to hop in and help anyone in need and is friendly to all who attend our events. Congrats, Jordan!
