New principal begins at Coshocton Christian School

| August 20, 2014

COSHOCTON – Students at the Coshocton Christian School were greeted by a new face on Wednesday morning for their first day of classes.

Stan Zurowski’s education career began in 1969 when he was a teacher and coach in the Dover School District. He left Dover in 1985 and came to Coshocton where he was principal at Coshocton Middle School, Lincoln Elementary, and Central Elementary. He then retired from education after 38 years in the field.

In 2009, Zurowski came out of retirement and became principal at Hopewell Schools until 2010. After the former Coshocton Christian School principal, Joseph Hedstrom, left, Zurowski was asked if he wanted the open position.

“After some time of prayer and meeting with the board, I made the decision that this is where the Lord wanted me,” said Zurowski.

Zurowski is excited to fulfill his new role as principal of Coshocton Christian School and hopes the students will take their Christian education out into the world.

“As the students grow and graduate, I want them to have a sense of taking their Christian experience and to use that as they go out into the community and the world,” he said. “We want them to take what they know and go out and do. I want to continue that kind of goal for the students.”

Zurowski is certified as a principal and a superintendent. His love for education began when he was in fifth or sixth grade and only grew as he went to college. He began his principal duties at Coshocton Christian School on Aug. 20.

“I thank the Lord for guiding and directing me here,” he said. “As I go through the year, I rely on Him to guide and direct me.”
