Liberty Christian selects new superintendent

ANDERSON, Ind. — Liberty Christian School has chosen Lynn Staley, who most recently served as a professor of early childhood education at Ball State University, as its next superintendent.

The search began after former superintendent Jeremy Cowin resigned in November. Elementary principal Lisa Huff stepped in as interim.

Liberty Christian announced the news through a press release Tuesday evening.

Staley, who takes on her new role June 1, will continue to develop the academic program, oversee school operations and serve as the chief liaison between Liberty Christian and the community, according to Doug Roorbach, director of development.

“Dr. Staley is uniquely gifted to strengthen the academic program and develop the supportive community that has been the hallmark of LCS ...” said Michael Evans, chair of the school’s board of directors. “We are encouraged about the future of LCS and continuing our vision to equip every student to passionately impact the world for Christ.”

He said the board is grateful for Huff’s leadership and for staff who have been supportive during a time of transition.

Before becoming a teacher educator, Staley taught kindergarten, including a stint at Liberty when it opened in 1976, later becoming the school’s elementary principal, Roorbach stated.

She is married to Flagship Enterprise CEO Chuck Staley and also served as a representative of the Association for Childhood Education International, is the co-founder of Heritage College, an early childhood teacher education program located in Makutano, Kenya, and the director of Project Change, an after-school program that promotes local/global citizenship in youth.

“I am truly committed to the mission of Liberty Christian School, where students receive an excellent education based on biblical truth,” she said. “Liberty Christian School has a bright future. There are exciting days ahead and I am privileged to be a part of this good place.”

She added she’s grateful to the board of directors and search team for their commitment, and is excited to partner with faculty and staff.
