Highlands Ranch Historical Society Board of Directors

President, Information Technology

David K Hill

Born and raised in California, David had the desire to live in Colorado since the 3rd Grade.  When an employment opportunity presented itself, he quickly jumped on the chance, threw some clothes and a microwave in trunk of the car and headed to Colorado with his lovely wife Sonya.  He loves the scenery, people and culture that Colorado has to offer.  His zeal for organizing and applying his computer skills are seen in the quality and creativeness he puts into the HRHS Web Site.  He has over 30 years of experience in the IT field and has served on several executive boards in California before moving to the Centennial State. He continues to run his people-first consulting services at Far West Computer Consulting.  Since his arrival in the area he has also been keeping busy with his infatuation for the community’s rich histories by serving on the board of HRHS.

Secretary

David Johnston

David moved with his family to a location just north of Highlands Ranch in 1977.  He watched our neighborhood grow from fields to the large suburb it is today.  David's childhood memories of Highlands Ranch include picking up cans along Daniel's Park Road, picking wild asparagus along the Highline Canal and learning to drive on the streets before the homes came in.  David graduated from Cherry Creek High School, received a bachelor’s degree from University of Colorado - Boulder and graduate degrees from the University of Denver.  David now works as the Director of Program Management for MeteoStar, A Division of Sutron Corporation.  David has had the opportunity to travel all over the US and Canada as a kid along with international travel as an adult and has never found a place he likes more than Colorado.  David has always liked history and currently also volunteers as a Highlands Ranch Mansion docent and is appointed to the Douglas County Historical Preservation Board until 2017.  David is happy to be living and raising his family in Highlands Ranch.

Vice President

Paul McKeag

Paul, after moving to Colorado in 1990 and researching where he wanted to live, settled in unincorporated Douglas County in 1993.  Having concerns relating to land use, the quality of development along the C-470 corridor, and a desire for greater input over development decisions affecting the area’s future, he joined with other like-minded residents in 1994.  From that involvement, he was elected Vice Chairman of the Charter Commission, and then Chairman of the Election Commission for the successful incorporation of the City of Lone Tree in 1995.  After moving to Highlands Ranch in 1996, Paul became one of the Founding Fathers of the Highlands Ranch Chamber of Commerce, and served as a Board Member.   Until business travel caused a conflict, he was a dedicated member of the Metro Districts Park and Recreation Board as well.  Paul has also been Santa Claus for children visiting the HR Mansion at Christmas time, and is a current Volunteer Docent for Mansion Tours.  His spouse and grown children, along with their families, have greatly enjoyed the area, especially Highlands Ranch.
