Calvin Christian School (CCS) has announced that Dr. Bethany Schuttinga has accepted the appointment to serve as the school’s next president. Schuttinga brings to CCS a 17-year career in education, having served in administrative leadership at Dordt College (Iowa) and Iowa State University before her most recent role building a platform for Christian education in Indonesia.
Schuttinga will start as CCS’s president on a full-time basis on July 1. Until then, she will work closely with CCS’s current president, Randy Kroll, to ensure a smooth transition, and will spend time getting acquainted with the CCS community and area educational leaders.
