Summit Christian Academy (SCA) has named Mr. Joe Hesman as the new Secondary Principal of Summit Christian Academy. Mr. Hesman comes to SCA with a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Nebraska, a Master of Science in Education and an Education Specialist in Administration from the University of Central Missouri.  Mr. Hesman was a U.S. Marine and, after sustaining an injury, was released with a medical honorable discharge. He has served in assistant principal and principal positions in public schools since 2001, principal of Oak Park High School, and most recently principal at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy. He and his wife Stacey have been married for twenty years and have 16-year-old twin sons and a 9-year-old daughter. They attend Eagle Creek Church in Lee’s Summit.

“The principal position was advertised in a number of ways, and we received resumes and applications from many candidates,” shared SCA Head of School Linda Harrelson. “It soon became evident that Mr. Hesman was a perfect fit for our school. He has the skills, the character, and the fit to lead our secondary at this time.”

Mr. Hesman was introduced to the entire SCA faculty at the March 28 teacher in-service and spent the remainder of the day meeting with SCA administrative administrators. “I am truly honored and blessed with the opportunity to work at Summit Christian Academy!  I look forward to getting to know the students, staff and parents, and being a part of what God has planned for the future of this terrific school! ” Mr. Hesman’s contract at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy will conclude the end of June.  He will assume the SCA Secondary Principal position in mid-July.

Harrelson added, “While we will most definitely miss Mr. Esparza who has served as secondary principal since 2006, we are looking forward with great anticipation to working with Mr. Hesman to raise up godly young people to serve the Lord and their community.”
