IRON MOUNTAIN - A new principal has been hired at Bishop Baraga Catholic School.
Iron Mountain native Adam Husing will be taking over this year as principal.
Former principal Richard Krainz has taken a job to be closer to his family in Green Bay. He has been helping Husing with the transition this past week.
"I am proud of the accomplishments during my time at BBCS. Who would have thought two years ago we would have 30 new iPads, a new K-5 math program and new playground, just to name a few, for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year. Thank you everyone for your support and sharing your talents for the children of BBCS and myself," Krainz said.
Husing graduated of Iron Mountain High School in 2000.
He received with a B.A. in education from Carthage College in 2004 and completed his M.A. in pastoral theology from Ave Maria University in 2011.
During that time he ran a high school seminary for the diocese of La Crosse, Wis. For the past two school years, he has worked as the director of Faith Formation for the three parishes in Menominee.
Husing said he chose to come to Bishop Baraga because "I had the privilege of being a long term substitute teacher at Bishop Baraga in 2005, and I loved the school. The staff is excellent and I really enjoyed my time with the children. I look forward to working with the teachers again to prayerfully discern how to best serve the community with our Catholic school."
Husing plans for the future school year include "to listen to the teachers, staff, and parents about how to make Bishop Baraga School the best choice in education in our area. Through daily prayer among the students and staff, our common vision can remain centered on Jesus Christ and his church."
Husing can be reached at 774-2277.
