Chaz Hafey, lab coordinator, channels the North Pole around this time each year.
Bringing the holiday spirit to his classroom, Chaz delights students with amazing decorations and a plethora of personalized Santa hats. His collection includes a different hat for each day of the week, plus three personally decorated by each of his daughters.
With an appearance much like Kris Kringle himself, Chaz was once mistaken as Santa while making a trip to a local Wal-Mart. Sporting his Oklahoma University red sweater, a young girl waved frantically at Chaz while telling her father she had met Santa.
