Providence Christian Academy names new principal

LILBURN — Providence Christian Academy removed the interim label from Ken Hunsberger’s title on Monday when it was announced that he would be the school’s new high school principal.

A search committee selected Hunsberger after it reviewed more than 30 applications, which were narrowed to four finalists who were interviewed in January. Hunsberger, who was named interim high school principal in August, has served the school for 17 years, Associate Head of School Sean Chapman said in a letter to parents and students posted on the school’s web site.

“His walk with the Lord, integrity, skill set, rapport with faculty, students, parents, and alumni, and his understanding of the unique culture of Providence position him well to lead our high school,” Chapman wrote in the letter.

Hunsberger has served as a teacher and been in charge of leadership clubs at the school, among other roles. He replaced Chapman, who was principal for 10 years, when Chapman was promoted last summer.

The search committee consisted of Connie Adams (Elementary/Middle School Principal), Andrea Byers (PTF President, Board of Directors), Sean Chapman (Associate Head of School), Jim Vaught (Head of School) and Rick Yost (Board of Directors).
