Christian Unified was happy to welcome Bob Ruhlman to the staff this year as our new Superintendent. Though a graduate of Christian Heritage College, he grew up in the quaint town of Everson, Washington, which is located only a few miles from the Canadian border. He then lived and taught in Seattle, Washington for 28 years, but this campus and Shadow Mountain Community Church remained near and dear to his heart.
He is truly happy for the opportunity to return and serve Christian Unified, saying, “To be associated with SMCC and Pastor Jeremiah is a treasure.”
As for his time here at Christian, he said he got “a very quick sense of the spirit of the community,” and is eager to become familiar with it. Ruhlman considers the student and faculty bodies remarkable, saying that his first impressions were nothing short of incredible. As our superintendent, his biggest goal this year is to break the ice with the still-wary student body – a change in leadership is no small thing, and he means to make his first year an enjoyable one for all of us.
We are excited about what this has in store!
