“Therefore, since we have this ministry because we were shown mercy, we do not give up.” – 2 Corinthians 4:1
Hello. My name is David Hartley and I will be serving as our Principal/Administrator of WCA. Bobbie Martin has not left, she is now the director of the Preschool and will be assisting me as needed. Many of you know me because I either taught you or your children math in middle school, or I go to church with you. I graduated from Waynesville High School in 1975. I worked for the U.S. Forest Service & am a Coast Guard veteran. I began teaching 7th & 8th grade math in 1984. I have a B.S. in Industrial Technology, a Masters & PhD in Education Administration, along with a Missouri state principal certificate. I’ve been married to my lovely wife, Anna, for 11 years. We have 4 children & 6 grandchildren. I had planned to teach another 4 or 5 years, but the Lord had other plans for me!
I am excited about the upcoming school year & have been in continuous prayer for God to give me wisdom & guidance for our school. What I need from you is your support & prayers. I ask that you pray for our students, their families, our teachers, support staff, & church, as well as our local public schools. Please also pray for our country & those that our Lord has put in place in our government.
As I said earlier, I am excited about seeing how God is going to take our very good school & make it even better! I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you & your children. My goal in the coming years is to become an accredited Christian school and continue to grow through the 6th grade. Let’s continue to get the word out about our excelling school as we want to be head & shoulders above all other schools academically, spiritually & morally. Thank you for this opportunity to serve you.
To God Be the Glory,
