new principal announcement
Mr. McDonald, who has faithfully served FHCS for the past seven years, will be retiring after the close of the school year. Mr. Josh Snyder (sorry but no relation to you know who , Go Cats!) has accepted the position of Principal and will formally begin duties on July 15. Mr. Snyder whose education administrative, teaching and pastoral experience has taken him to Colorado, Arizona and Washington will now make Manhattan his home along with his wife, Elizabeth and their three children. We are very happy to welcome the Snyder family to the FHCS community! See video message below.
Video Message From Josh Snyder
A well deserved thank you!!!
Tim McDonald came full circle when he returned to Manhattan in 2012 to become FHCS Principal. His career in education began with teaching in Manhattan public schools. He and Becky McDonald (who has helped in more ways with more projects than we can begin to list - look up "classy" in the dictionary and you'll see her picture!) traveled to stops in Texas, Kenya and China where they have teamed up to affect lives positively for Christ around the world. Mr. McDonald has worn every hat imaginable from teacher, principal, coach of nearly every sport, athletic director and that's barely getting started.
We have been blessed at FHCS by his leadership, work ethic, calm demeanor and understanding spirit. He has brought renewed vision, opened doors into the community that had previously been shut and done an incredible amount of hard work in all areas which has impacted the school in myriad ways. We thank you for always taking the time to listen, to help, to pray, and share your perfectly timed dry sense of humor with a smile when we needed it. Thank you and God bless you both!
COngratulations FHCS Class of 2019!!
