Staffing Changes

It is bittersweet that we share the news that Coach Jason Haltiwanger has accepted a new position at Oakbrook Academy. Coach Halt has accomplished so much at Richard Winn- academically, athletically, and spiritually. Though we are excited for his new opportunity, we are very sad that he will not be on staff next year.  Here are a few words from Coach Halt:

I am very grateful to Richard Winn for the many memories and friendships that were made during my time at RWA. It is with a heavy heart that my family will be leaving this great place I have called home for the past 10 years, but we are excited for what God is calling us to do next. To my players, remember to always sprint the race that God has called you to run, not for a crown that will perish, but a crown that will last forever.
I would like to thank God for the opportunity to work at Richard Winn Academy, allowing me to do what I am most passionate about, which is teaching and coaching.
God Bless,
Coach Halt
We are excited to announce and welcome Ms. Misty Mathis to the Richard Winn family as the new Dean of Student and Resources. Ms. Mathis will also be coaching the new competitive cheer program. She will be holding additional tryouts for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year for rising eighth through twelfth grades. More information will follow.
