Greetings St. John's Academy Families and Friends!
I am very excited to have been recently chosen to serve as the new principal at such a wonderful school. For the past twenty years, I have been employed as a college basketball coach throughout the upper Midwest, including six years at the University of Jamestown. On the surface, the leap from college coach to elementary principal may appear to be a large one, however, for many years I have felt the call and desire to work with the Catholic Church. I’m passionately in love with Christ’s church and am a strong advocate for the quality education offered through Catholic schools. My wife, Jodi, and I have four children (Katelyn, Leah, Joe and Andrew), who have been enrolled in Catholic schools whenever possible. We have seen firsthand the incredible impact and experience offered through strong Catholic schools.
This is an exciting time at St. John’s Academy. I am looking forward to assisting in the process of establishing a strong future for our school that will span generations to come. My family and I are looking forward to meeting and working with you all.
